Beautiful historical home with large bedrooms and baths. Very clean and comfortable. Secure yard/patio area with hot tub. Lots of activities and games for the whole family. This is a home that makes me want to plan another vacation so I can stay here again.

Our group of 10 enjoyed the house so much. Spacious room, clean, close to town… perfect getaway. Hot tub was nice to come back to and enjoy at night.
JEANNE G. Oct 2022
Delightful decor! Nostalgia and clean. Needs better Wi-Fi instructions and tv remote clarification fromSIX remotes.
Adrian T. Oct 2022
Great stay, great spot to be in. They had everything we needed and we could reach out to them with any questions we had. This was our second year here, we will definitely be back
Denise J. Sep 2022
This house was beautiful and perfect for our group of women who have known each other since early childhood. There was plenty of room for us to sit around the table and share stories, laughs, memories and love.
Megan W. Mar 2022
The home was amazing! Great size and many fun things to do. We would definitely stay here again!
David P. Mar 2022
Nice property with large bedrooms, updated bathrooms, and well-stocked kitchen with modern appliances. The game room is comfy and has plenty of activities available. When we weren't visiting Fredericksburg's Main Street, we had a lot of fun playing foosball, ping pong, and table games. The patio was a nice place to relax, sip, and talk.

The house was comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and clean. Loved the large table that all could set around. Beds and linens were fabulous. This missed five stars due to “someone’s” toothpicks being left on a night table and a patio with goldfish all over. We booked and canceled two years prior to Covid. It was worth the wait.

House is exactly as described, and pictures are true to life. We had 5 couples, and never felt crowded. Only drawback is the setup for the two bedrooms that share a bathroom is a bit different. One of the bedrooms has an attached bathroom, and there’s a door from one bedroom to next and you have to go thru the bedroom to get to bathroom. We thought it would be more of a Jack and Jill type of set up. But it worked fine. The decor was so nicely done. The hot tub worked great too. Beautiful home! We were in awe of how gorgeous it was. We’d definitely come back again.
Sandy G. Feb 2022
The house was absolutely perfect for a long weekend stay! It was clean and in a great location! The hot tub was amazing after a long day of wine tasting! I would highly recommend this beautiful Victorian home!!
Shannon L. Sep 2021
We loved the house! However, your cleaning crew leaves a lot to be desired! There was popcorn in, on and under the furniture; not to mention dog food and toys. Thank you though for your prompt response to our requests!
Charles A. Aug 2021
This place was great. The house had everything we needed. Very close to Main Street. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Fredericksburg.
Corinne P. Jul 2021

Carolyn N. Jul 2021
Everything was wonderful, just as expected.
Robin S. May 2021
Our family loved the game room, hot tub and porch swing. My kids are expecting every vacation house to be like this now - the bar has been set too high lol. Great location central to everything in Fredericksburg.
Robin K. Apr 2021
The place was great. Just need to add a fire pit on patio
Gina H. Apr 2021
Plenty of room and privacy!
Karen C. Apr 2021
This home was a winner for our girls trip. Beautiful with all the amenities and close to everything Fredericksburg had to offer. We would love to rent this home again!
Monica A. Jan 2021
The house was beautiful and huge!! My friends and I had a wonderful time!
Janet H. Dec 2020
We loved that the house had enough bedrooms for all. A large dining table for meals. The game room was a great plus for the grandkids.
David J. Dec 2020
This was our 2nd family reunion in this home. We knew that it would give us plenty of space for the little ones to play with other parts of the home for visiting and relaxing, especially the hot tub at the end if the day.

The well stocked kitchen allowed everyone to participate in cooking and the oversized table was great for large dinners and game time. We knew to bring a big table cloth since the glass table scratches easily.

But the best surprise was tasteful Christmas decorations inside with a lite tree to welcome us in this time! It was a wonderful time where even our 2 furry kids could join in the fun this time.
Colin M. Dec 2020
The house is perfect for groups/families whom want to get together. It has enough space to enjoy some quiet time and several spaces to come together to enjoy the home. The front porch and backyard were great hang out spaces for us. Highly recommend this place.
Beth N. Dec 2020
The home was perfect for our family of 9. There was even room to spare. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. We loved staying there and hope to go back sometime soon. Thank you!
Lori U. Nov 2020
We loved Silver Lining 1898! The house is beautiful! Everything was clean & the hot tub was nice & hot! We enjoyed the ping pong table & game room! Very nicely decorated, kitchen was equipped perfectly! Perfect location as it was very quiet at night & a nice walk to the downtown area! We will definitely be back! Thank you!
Wendy P. Oct 2020
The house was conveniently located to downtown Fredericksburg. The furnishings were great. A grill on the patio was also nice. Only drawback was not having the fourth king size bedroom with it’s own bath. Well stocked kitchen with lots of cooking utensils.
Rhonda L. Aug 2020
When we stayed here, there were 4 of us and everyone had their own unique bedroom and bathroom. The house itself is decorated with neat vintage and antique items. It is a pet-friendly place with a courtyard/backyard safe for your dog to roam without fear of it getting out.
Kevin D. Aug 2020
Home was very nice. Plenty of room for our group of 11. Never felt crowded. Everything we encountered in the home worked like it should. Quiet neighborhood.
Brianna B. Aug 2020
Everything you need for a fabulous stay! They have thought of shoes, hot tub, ping pong, game room, porch swings and rockers! We had things to do and see in Fredricksburg and surrounding areas, but we hated to leave the house everyday!
Super clean and comfortable
Joseph M M. Jul 2020
Beautiful old home. Enjoyed the large bedrooms with en-suites.
Front porch, patio and game room were fantastic.
Clean, great A/C. Well stocked kitchen appliances and utensils.
Good location for downtown access but neighborhood a little rundown.
Devan K. Jul 2020
This house offered everything you could want! Huge game room with games and puzzles...large kitchen filled with all you need to cook while there. Grill on the patio with the Hot Tub...the loft bedroom that can sleep 4 is secluded and cool! The house, bedrooms, bathrooms...perfect for Fredericksburg! The home is a beautiful blending of old and new! We will certainly try to book this again with family! We stayed with friends this year and we had all the space we could want for privacy! Wow!
Tracy N. Jul 2020
This house was filled with charm and unique decor. The front porch was a great place to sit and enjoy the breeze and the backyard was cozy with vintage chairs. Guest rooms and bathrooms were comfortable and well equipped. We were there to work so the dining room table (an old door on sewing machine legs) and the kitchen were key for us and worked well. Though we didn't use the lounge/game room much it seemed to have all the extras. There were a few small challenges that an older home often brings but they were definitely offset by the charm!
Kristi L. Jul 2020
This is a cute and charming home Very spacious and comfortable for our party of 8. The kid space was great and kept them active. We didn’t use the jacuzzi but it was a great option. Location to Main St was perfect. A few not so great things to note: 1) lots of flies and mosquitoes. My family got chewed up by mosquitoes!! We went to the store to buy a fly swatter. 2) having 3 king beds was awesome for my family as we had 3 couples, but not all 3 of those rooms had a bathroom. I would recommend swapping the queen size bed with the king for the adjoining bathroom. 3) I emailed Vacasa and the property manager multiple times to ask questions about the kitchen appliances. I did not want to pack what was already available. I received 0 responses!! I packed my items only to find out the property DID have them available. This troubled me mostly because if I had any concerns while staying at the property, I am not confident that may not my issues/questions would be resolved or answered.

Four couples had a great time at Silver Lining 1898. Extraordinary space within and great parking. So many special options will satisfy adults and kids. Easy walking to Main Street Fredericksburg. Very clean and obvious their Covid19 cleaning process works.
Laura M. Jun 2020
Well stocked, lots to do, easy to get around Fredericksburg from here.
Phyllis F. Jun 2020
We had 5 ladies on our girls vacation and absolutely loved this amazing home. The location is perfect, and walking distance to main street. Each room has new beds and very spacious. The outdoor patio area is beautiful and so peaceful. I would highly recommend this property and will be visiting again in the future.
Ashley L. May 2020
Our family loved this property. The game room is great and we had so much fun. The outdoor space is gorgeous and the home itself is charming. It was way more space than we expected or needed. I would definitely say it outdid our expectations. We would visit again.
Lindsay E. May 2020
Beautifully renovated historic home. Close to Main St. Lots of amenities to entertain friends and family. Nice private courtyard with hot tub too. Would highly recommend
MIranda S. Mar 2020
This is a great house for a couples trip or girls trips - everyone had their own space and the living areas were accommodating and comfortable and clean. Loved the hot tub and backyard space. Will definitely stay again!
Peter T. Feb 2020
Beautiful home -- spacious, with great furniture and facilities. Best equipped kitchen, and considerate spaces for everyone: game room, hot tub, yard. Wonderful front porch with rockers and swing. Close to downtown, and quiet.

Mickey P. Oct 2019
We booked the house for coupes mini getaway and the house worked out prefect. The place had plenty of space to accommodate 4 couples. We will definitely book this house when we return.
The home and decor were fabulous. The owners response to broken air conditioning was right on. The kids loved the game room and the adults enjoyed gathering around the kitchen table. Great bedrooms.
Carlin T B. Jun 2019
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in your beautiful house and found it to be even better than advertised. Our grandchildren had plenty of games and recreation to keep them entertained and we had room for all. Thanks, Carlin & Teresa

Lauren W. Jan 2019
We rented Silver Lining 1898 for a girls weekend. It was perfect for our group. The house is adorable and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were nice. We cooked dinner one night and the kitchen was well equipped to meet our cooking needs. The hot tub was great and there was plenty of entertainment for the one rainy night we had. There is an H-E-B nearby (you could walk to it) for your grocery needs. Everyone in my group loved the house and want to stay again for our next Fredericksburg trip.
Darby H. Jan 2019
My group of 9 had a wonderful stay in the Silver Lining 1898 home! The home was spacious, beautifully decorated and welcoming. We loved the game room and the hot tub especially! Would definitely stay here again on my next visit :)
Shirley K. Dec 2018
The home has a family style kitchen. Beds and linens were clean but not the bathrooms or floor and dirty underwear left behind with dust balls.
Addie G. Oct 2018
We LOVED this house. It was very clean and stocked with many things to make our weekend easier. Walking distance from Main street! Highly recommend!!!
Amanda K. Oct 2018
This place is perfect for a big group. We had ten, and it did not feel crowded. It was very peaceful and quiet. The decorations were charming. There was plenty of parking and overall, it was a great place to relax.
Sally D. Oct 2018
We live in FBG, but had to find a property in town due to the flooding in our subdivision and the inability to get home. Well, this house provided all the comfort of home, and then some! The kids enjoyed the game room, the hot tub was very nice, the kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfy, and the house was very clean. We’d recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Fredericksburg!
