Storied home close to Main Street w/ covered porch and Texas charm!
Humble House is a quiet homestead right near town that's perfect for your next family or friend getaway. Featuring a large yard for croquet, a pot belly stove to warm you in winter, and a charming history, this 3,100 square-foot home and two-car garage has what you need. This home sleeps seven adults, but with two additional queen-size air mattresses provided, a maximum of 11 guests are allowed.
Located in town, just a mile from Main Street, Humble House is the best of both worlds - close to the action yet set in a quiet neighborhood. Just a short drive gets you to the Admiral Nimitz World War II re-enactments and the National Museum of the Pacific War, friendly diners, Bavarian-style bistros and bakeries, and winery tasting rooms for local wines and beers. If you're visiting for Fredericksburg Oktoberfest, numerous other local festivals, or happen to be around for Trade Days (a monthly flea market where you're bound to find souvenirs), this location is ideal.
Built in 1985 by the original owners' father, this home honors history on its walls. The builder worked for the Humble Oil Company from the 1940s (after WWII) to 1968, and to this day Humble Oil prints hang throughout the home, hence the property name.
Its charm goes beyond the artwork and permeates through the traditional American furnishings, hardwood floors, and the presence of candy bowls in every room.
You and your sweetie can share morning coffee on the covered porch while sitting on the two-seat glider or rocking chairs. In the afternoon, watch the kids play tag while you make hot dogs on the charcoal grill.
Head inside to the family room featuring an old-style pot belly stove. In colder weather, utilize the provided log and warm up the home and create an atmosphere like nothing else. Entertainment options include the cable TV with Blu-ray and VCR, the Bose CD player and cassette player, and WiFi. Unplug with the provided books and relax in the electronically adjusted recliners, or sit down with the family for a game of dominoes on the two card tables for a screen-free evening making memories.
Though there are a ton of places to dine out nearby, you can save money on eating out by fixing up meals in your well-equipped kitchen, which includes a dishwasher, blender, toaster, pancake griddle, and coffeemaker. Eat around the 10-seat dining table by the windows and tell stories of your own family history.
If you've been out all day at Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course or exploring LBJ State Park, chances are you're going to be tired. Choose among the three bedrooms: the master suite includes a king-size bed, private bathroom, and TV, the second room has another king bed and TV, and the third room has a queen bed. With these accommodations, the home sleeps up to seven adults, but with two queen-size air mattresses provided, a maximum of 11 guests are allowed.
With a full house, the two full bathrooms make it easy for everyone to get along. Meanwhile, a private washer and dryer will help you keep your wardrobe fresh, while the central heating and air conditioning will keep you comfy no matter what the temperature outside is.
From Enchanted Rock State Natural Area and state parks surrounding the area to the up-and-coming wineries dotting Texas Hill Country, there’s so much to do in and around Fredericksburg that makes it more than just a day-trip town. In fact, while your basecamp may be in the more affordable and quieter Fredericksburg, you may be interested in day-tripping to the cities of Austin - home of the State Capital and the University of Texas - and San Antonio - home of the Alamo, Six Flags, and SeaWorld.
You can pick your own fruit from local farmers who open up their farms for strawberries, blackberries, and peaches, plus many summer vegetables are available to pick or buy and take home with you!
If you want to see live vaudeville, try Rockbox Theater, just off Main Street, which is the only professionally cast live music show in the Texas Hill Country that guarantees family-friendly top of the line entertainment! If you come in the spring time, you can drive on the famous Texas Bluebonnet Willow City Loop just outside of town which is one of the most photographed areas in the state.
See what all the "Keep Austin Weird" hype is about or get a load of history at the Alamo. While sometimes overlooked, this area of the US is brimming with unique experiences for the whole family.
Visit Fredericksburg and stay at the storied Humble House for your next getaway!

This is our second year in a row to stay at the humble house around valentines. Great location and convenient to everywhere in Fredericksburg and surrounding area. Beds are comfy, kids love playing in the big open area next to the house. Her bowls of candy are a plus all around the house. And they were nice enough to let us in early so we could drop stuff off and start enjoying our time in Fredericksburg. Highly recommend this place for families.
Alberto V.Dec 2019
It was extremely clean. The property was quiet and the living area was very cozy. Would definitely rent this property again.
Austin A.Dec 2019
This house is very clean and spacious. Conveniently located just a 2 minute drive to town with large bedrooms and living area. We loved the outdoor space with a large well maintained side-yard for the kids to run and play.
Katrina W.Sep 2019
The home was beautiful and very comfortable but it was noisy. The floors have been redone from carpeting to laminate flooring which leaves a large gap under the doors when they are closed. This large gap let in light and noise from occupied rooms when others were trying to nap/go to bed earlier then others and disturbed them. Part of the problem of the noise could be solved by having throw rugs on the floor of the shared living spaces. Thank you for the overall wonderful experience!
Katrina, thank you for your feedback following your stay. We are happy you enjoyed this beautiful home! We have passed your feedback along to our local manager who will work with the homeowner to address any noise issue. We look forward to hosting you again!
Robin H.Sep 2019
I liked the floor plan - master bed/bath was separate from the other three rooms.
The kitchen was very well stocked.
LOVED the porch with all the rockers!
Jennifer M.Aug 2019
Cute neighborhood, very peaceful. Felt like we were visiting family. So comfortable!
Geoeffery W.Jul 2019
Great stay at the Humble House! Stayed with 7 people...home was clean, cool and set in a quiet neighborhood. Less then 5mins (by car) from the main shopping area yet still quiet and relaxing.
Barney S.Jun 2019
This is the second year we’ve stayed here. Is clean and comfortable with a really nice yard.
William C.May 2019
Perfect House. Everything was good and we enjoyed our stay. Adults loved it and the kids had plenty of room to play and no one asked to play on any devices the whole weekend!!
Jane L.Apr 2019
Humble house is a delightful Airbnb - just over a mile from Main Street and perfect for s stay in Hill Country . House has three bedrooms - great living areas - is very comfortable and spotlessly clean . Only think we could not figure out was the TV but we had brought DVDs so was not an issue . Highly recommend
Leslie C.Mar 2019
This was a wonderful weekend for a stay with friends. There were 6 adults and 3 children and we had so much room and the house was so comfortable for everyone. The location is close to Main St and it was easy to get around. Check in and out was easy and the hosts were easy to communicate with before and during our stay.
Kimberly J.Mar 2019
Close to the main street, easy to find, very comfortable and will be a house we come back to!
Cindy E.Mar 2019
This home is spacious and provides all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is quiet and serene. We loved this property.
Jeff R.Feb 2019
It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Great yard for kids to play in and was just the right distance to Main Street and all that Fredericksburg has to offer.
Tamra B.Feb 2019
Great kitchen and a lot of thoughtful touches to make our cost wonderful. All three couples love to come and eat healthy so there well equipped kitchen was much appreciated. The front porch, extra large lot and trees made relaxing outside very enjoyable. The coffee maker took forever.... Needs cleaning with vinegar or replacing. That was a little frustrating by very fixable.
Robin M.Jan 2019
We enjoyed the space and the privacy. Location is just out of town with easy driving access to the wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants and shopping.
Jeanette H.Jan 2019
Very comfortable, clean house! Lots of room for 6 and a baby! So nice to relax and enjoy family time after sightseeing. And so nice to have the chocolates in all the baskets around the house! Definitely would rent again!!!!!
Shanshan M.Dec 2018
Our family truly enjoyed our stay at the humble house during Christmas 2018. The location is very close to the Main Street and conveniently on the way to the enchanted rock. The owner is very detail oriented and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Even our two toddlers loved it. We definitely recommend it!
Dale T.Dec 2018
Humble House is only 3 minutes from Main street...without the noise! Very nice neighborhood, big fenced yard for the kids, big 2-car garage, very clean and very well kept! Nice get-away place!
Janet R.Dec 2018
Humble House was perfect for our large group over Thanksgiving. We rent vacation homes frequently and this is definitely ranked at the top with its charming decor, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, its location and easy access for those who have trouble walking or navigating stairs.
The house gets a superior rating for cleanliness. We own a residential/commercial cleaning business and we tip our hats to your cleaning crew!!
Thank you, we will definitely be back!!
Adrian T.Nov 2018
There was plenty of room for the six of us. Very clean. Very comfortable beds. Everything we needed. Convenient to town.
Beautiful home. Will definitely rent this home again!
Lori K.Nov 2018
We chose this because we wanted to go back and forth to Main Street during our stay and be able to relax together. It was perfect! Very close and convenient and comfortable.
Cheryl L.Oct 2018
We had been looking for a home in Fredericksburg where my aging parents and one of their couple friends from Austin could meet and visit for a few days. This home worked beautifully! Great WiFi too by the way.
The living room is open and easy for a walker to maneuver all around. There are a few steps at the front door but the hand rails made that simple. There are also hands rails for the steps in the garage that felt quite natural too. Even the lift recliner in the living room was helpful. The garage was handy when it was time to go to dinner during the rainy days. Pulled the car in out of the rain, loaded up and off we went.
The beauty of this home is that even if aging parental needs are not important to you, it is still very comfortable. Not ultra modern but very comfortable with every detail thought through.
Michael W.Oct 2018
We had a wonderful time at the Humble House. Our Family and another family shared this house over fall break. It felt like home. It was very comfortable. It all all of the supplies necessary (towels, soap, dishes, cooking utensils, washer, dryer, etc. The wood burning stove was great as we took part in the first cold spell of the year. This is a great home to stay in if you are visiting the Fredericksburg area?
Nancy C.Oct 2018
Everything we needed was here! Very clean and comfortable.
Kay P.Sep 2018
We loved Humble House. Beds comfortable, spacious living area, great porch for morning coffee, and quiet neighborhood. Very clean. Would definitely rent again.
Douglas H.Aug 2018
exactly as described in the on line marketing. beds were comfortable and amenities were all in working order.
Melanie S.Aug 2018
We had a lovely stay at Humble House. The home was immaculately clean and very comfortable with recliners in almost every room. It was also well stocked with anything you would need for cooking. The bowls of chocolate in each room were a nice touch too.
Dennis P.Jul 2018
Located in a very quiet neighborhood convenient to downtown. Air conditioning was cold, showers were hot and beds were more than comfortable. All the conveniences of home (and then some). Best property we have ever stayed at in F-Burg and hope to be able to stay here again.
Steven C.Jun 2018
This had the makings to be a disaster!!!
To start out with Tiffany was excellent in finding the perfect place for me and my family, once we arrived (at 4:00am) there was an issue getting into the house we select but the ENTIRE staff pulled together at 4:30am and found me another place in 15 minutes, gave me direction and the code to get in. As I said, it could have been a disaster but by 5:00am my family and I were in the new house and ready to sleep. I highly recommend this team for anyone.
We are so glad to see this experience turned out to be positive for this guest and appreciate their patience in the matter. We hope to host them again!
Patrick & Robin D.Jun 2018
The house was so nice. The neighborhood the porch! It was all fantastic! I would stay there again and again
Laurice O.Jun 2018
We have stayed in many homes with VRBO over the years, but I have to say from the moment we walked in we felt at home! They have thought of everything. There is not one single thing we needed in the kitchen they had anything and everything, all the essentials and then some! Then the music that was there for us to listen to was so fantastic....40's and so relaxing to plays cards and visit. The front porch was perfect for that first cup of coffee and to watch and listen to the birds. The bathrooms were stocked with anything you needed as well, so pack your clothes and leave everything else at home. The neighborhood was quite and just the right distance away from town, and having a garage was such a plus. The Humble story was so inspiring and we felt like we knew your family. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for an amazing weekend.
Deanna H.May 2018
We were blessed to spend two days at Humble House with our family from German we just found 7 years ago. A Sister and Cousin my Husband did not know he had and their spouses. Humble House made the experience so much more personal and Intimate. Vacasa was a dream to work with I will Definitely be working with them in the future. Thank You to Vacasa,
the property Manger, the owner of Humble House, and the house keeping crew.

Kelly W.Apr 2018
This was the perfect house for our group. We were there celebrating a 40th birthday. The house was so clean and had everything we needed...even coffee! :-) It was really close to Main St. and everything else we were wanting to do. I would for sure rent this property again if we come back...which we plan on it very soon!
Carole L.Apr 2018
The layout of the house was great for 4 older ladies, as our group was. The house was very comfortable. The house had everything needed in the kitchen and dining was nice.
Alan H.Apr 2018
We have rented this house several times and always found it to be well maintained and clean. It's got a good location, being close enough to the main drag, but far enough away that it's nice and quite, but still in town.
Ann L.Mar 2018
Wow! Very impressed with the Humble House Bread&Breakfast. It’s perfectly located, about a mile from Main Street - walking distance. It’s so cozy, peaceful and immaculately clean!! Roomy kitchen, very well equipped, washer and dryer, too. Love the bedrooms, beds are so comfortable!! House can fit a good numberof people,too. Also, helpful is a custom book made by the owner that lists places and things to do while in Fredericksburg! We did allot in just a few days. Highly recommended, can’t wait to stay here again.
Katherine P.Mar 2018
This house is quaint and worked great for our girl's weekend. The kitchen has more than everything you need to cook and to enjoy meals together.
The living room space is open and great for gathering. The layout of the space is a little strange in that there is a huge side yard, but it opens to the street instead of to the privacy of a backyard and that the master bedroom is entirely separate from the other bedrooms (could be a good thing!). There are adorable and comfy rocking chairs on the porch, great for early mornings. The location is also great - we wound up walking back from town one evening after we had trouble catching a cab. This was my first time working with a property management company, and they were definitely responsive, but they had no way of knowing whether we could check in early or stay late until the eve of the trip, which made planning the details of long distance travel a little frustrating. Overall, a great place that I would come back to!
Barbara E.Dec 2017
Late check in not fair for price. Price was way too high and skeeeping on air mattresses was not explained! Not right
We're sorry the guest didn't do their research before booking this lovely home. Check-in time has always been 4pm and is the usual standard in the hospitality industry. This provides the housekeeping staff time to clean thoroughly prior to their arrival. The listing clearly stated the air mattress as part of the sleeping arrangement. Thank you.
Dixie H.Dec 2017
Excellent stay and very clean. House is so comfortable and the kitchen is fully stocked. Lovely home. I would recommend to anyone who wants a lovely visit and a front porch to relax.
OLIVIER J.Dec 2017
Denise V K.Nov 2017
Wonderful home for a family gathering. Nice quiet neighborhood and not very far from Main Street. Very clean and well maintained.
Nona G.Nov 2017
loved the decor - we all felt like we were at home (similar to house we grew up in)
sweets especially awesome - lots of chocolate choices!!!!! thank you for making our weekend filled with happiest of memories -
Joel A.Oct 2017
This was a great property. Location was great for our needs. Would recommend it to anyone not needing 4 bedrooms or more. I hope to find one this good again some day, but not likely.
Connie S.Oct 2017
Humble House was only a mile from downtown and in a very quiet neighborhood. The grandchildren we're able to ride bikes safely around the neighborhood.
Michael J B.Oct 2017
Linda C.Sep 2017
My sisters and I live in different States so, once a year we try to have a 'sister getaway' This was a great location and the house, yard and neighborhood was perfect. The location is close to town, if you decide to leave the house (it's that comfortable).
Aldo C.Aug 2017
Meticulous condition, everything you could possibly need was available. Definitely staying at Humble house again.
Jessica W.Jul 2017
Great place to go and relax on the front porch under the beautiful shade trees and visit with friends and family!
Georgina C.Jun 2017
Cute and cozy home, very spacious to comfortably sleep 6 (we arrived with 4 adults and 2 kids). The kids loved the huge yard, they tired themselves out by running on the lush grass chasing the fireflies. The home is a quick 2 mile drive to Main St. We will definitely be staying here again.
Laura B.May 2017
We had a tight squeeze with 10 adults and one child. It was a girls trip but like the song says "We are Family!" so we didn't mind the cozy quarters. Plus the management team called well in advance to make sure we understood that it would be tight for a party of our size. It was very centrally located to the main strip and there was plenty of space for us all to lounge in the living and dining area during the day. We had a great 48 hour trip and would recommend this house to anyone.
Kerry A.Apr 2017
My mother recently passed away and so my wife and I, and her elderly mother, took a trip to make some memories while we still can. My brother-in-law and his wife and children also went with us. The house easily accommodated five adults and two children with room to spare. The location was perfect on a quiet cul de sac street only one mile from the downtown strip. It was like being at our own home. Would definitely recommend this property to others and we are already making plans for a return trip next year!
Alan H.Apr 2017
We have rented this house several times. We enjoy the location for our activities and enjoy the porch and large kitchen / dining area.
Richard P.Mar 2017
Our stay at the Humble House was delightful. The house was spacious and comfortable for our kids and grand child. The personal touches enhanced our stay. It was close to downtown, yet secluded. We will definitely keep this on our list the next time.
Lawrence H.Mar 2017
Very clean, comfortable family home where you will feel like an old family friend trusted with the entire place for your stay.
Amber W.Feb 2017
The five of us had a great time! The house is about 1 mile from the main strip and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay!
Nicole W.Jan 2017
I will definitely be back to stay at the Humble House. Great location in a great town. The house was very clean and taken care of and the local staff was fantastic. They gave great recommendations of where to eat and what to do. Such a great weekend getaway. I highly recommend staying here at the Humble House and with the Vacasa property management company.
