Become part of the rich history of this four-bedroom Fredericksburg farmhouse, a spacious, century-old home with front and back porches for gatherings of family and friends in the heart of the Texas Wine Country.
Built in 1910 and farmed by the same family for three generations, this house sits on a two-acre plot surrounded by 38 acres overlooking the iconic Texas Hill Country Hilltop. You'll be within minutes of Grape Creek Vineyards and other popular winemakers on the Highway 290 Wine Trail, and just seven miles from the heart of downtown Fredericksburg.
Designated by the state of Texas as a Family Land Heritage Site, this two-level home has a long, storied history of hospitality. As a former boarding house in the 1920s, it has since been entirely updated - offering large rooms, an abundance of sunlight, and 3,000 square feet of living space for family get-togethers, getaways with special friends, and business or church retreats.
Step inside to find two living areas with beautiful hardwood floors, vintage furnishings, and air conditioning to keep you cool in the summer. Come home from a day of wine-tasting to recline on the wicker sofa with a good book, set up a puzzle or a game of dominoes at the table, and use the CD stereo system to create a relaxing vacation soundtrack. And stay in touch with folks back home with the free WiFi and enjoy the TV, which comes with DVD/VHS players.
The kitchen is modern and elegant, offering pristine white cabinets and stainless steel appliances that include a gas range and a dishwasher. Read the morning paper in the sun-filled breakfast room or catch up with your loved ones around the table in the formal dining room.
Over the years, this home was known for its vibrant dairy operation, its prize-winning chickens, and its verdant gardens, and there's no better place to survey the landscape than from one of the porches. Watch the sunset from a seat on the swing or one of the rocking chairs, light the charcoal grill for an evening barbecue, or set up the folding table for a friendly game of poker.
With four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, White Dairy Guesthouse can accommodate as many as 10 guests, and up to two dogs are also welcome for an additional nightly pet fee. You'll find one bedroom with a king-size bed, two bedrooms with a queen-size bed apiece, and one bedroom with a double bed that connects to the “sunrise porch” and offers a pair of twin beds. There's even a private laundry room to refresh your wardrobe after long walks through downtown Fredericksburg.
Your children will likely want to follow the model of the 1920s and gather their sleeping bags on the large enclosed porch. Without the distractions of TV, they'll spend hours reconnecting and telling stories until dawn.
Thanks to its fascinating history and wonderful location just outside downtown Fredericksburg, White Dairy Guesthouse will give you an authentic glimpse of life in Texas Hill Country. Immerse yourself in your surroundings as you spend your days tasting the wonderful wines at Messina Hof, Grape Creek Vineyards, and 4.0 Cellars, all of which are less than four miles east.
Head into downtown Fredericksburg to see more than 80 points of interest in the National Historic District, or pick up some local produce at the seasonal farmers market. Luckenbach Texas' funky post office, general store, and iconic country dance hall are located just six miles south. And you'll be just 10 miles west of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, the place where the 36th president was born, lived, and is now buried.
