The Olive at Mendelbaum Cellars is the ideal rental for a getaway to Central Texas with the entire family. This cabin is located on the same property as a working winery allowing for easy access to wine tasting, the scenic vineyards, and comfortable outdoor seating areas. This cabin, one of five on this property, features a well-equipped, full kitchen, perfect for making delicious and memorable family meals plus a covered and furnished porch. Behind the cabin is a large, shared hot tub, and the entire family will love the playground that is just a quick walk away. You'll also have access to a firepit where you can meet your neighbors as the stars come out overhead. There are two flatscreen TVs with Amazon Fire TV sticks as well.

What's nearby:

We stayed here when visiting the wine region with our family. The cabin was very sweet and well equipped with what we needed for a night's stay. We enjoyed some wine on the porch with the nice scenery. It was clean and tidy. I would stay again!

Love how relax we were out in the country the cabin is small but good enough for 6 people I will definitely stay there again.

Overall rating was poor. Will not return. Did not meet the standards of a Fredericksburg B&B. Minimal amenities. Many structural deficiencies resulting in crickets inside the cabin and questionable safety features (loft rail separating). The stay was restless. Window units in place of broken AC unit. Our only family memory will be laughing about how horrible this place was. I’m glad check-in was at 4p and check-out was 10a, which minimized the amount of time we had to be there.
Manager response:
We apologize you were so unhappy, David. Maintenance has repaired the railing, and pest control has sprayed the property. Hopefully we can impress you in the future!

RESERVATION
Quite easy, but I wish the management entity was more transparent about the fees. It listed the rental price above $300 for one night, then you get to the check out page and it has additional owner/management fees, cleaning fees, plus listing fees that should all be included in the price for how much it was per night.

LENGTH OF STAY
The check-in time is 4PM and check-out time is 10AM. It is quite a short stay for the money they are charging you for an overnight stay. Can't even sleep in.

CLEANLINESS
The dirty sheets from the previous tenant was sitting inside the cabin behind the front door, the bathroom had stray hairs, and the table out on the porch was dirty. The shared hot tub smelled of sulfur and was leaking all over the floor. Honestly, the cleaning fees should be waived given it wasn't really clean.

CONDITION
The inverter air conditioner units were out of order, the ceiling fan on the second floor does not work, as well as multiple dead outlets. The kitchen was workable but lacked a real refrigerator and freezer. The fridge is a lot smaller than a standard hotel-sized personal refrigerator. The doors are in fair condition, and the knobs do not work properly. It takes a minute before you can get the door opened.

Perhaps the sketchiest part of it all is that the cabin is sitting on stilts and was moving along with you when you walk to either side of the building! Please take a look at it as it can potentially collapse and cause injury.

OVERALL
If we aren't in a pinch and have more time to book our accommodations, this cabin will not be our first choice. It was a steep price for the serviceable but mediocre space with questionable cleanliness and cabin condition.
Manager response:
Hi, Jacob! We were not aware of some of these issues and appreciate you bringing them to our attention. Firstly, we do apologize if our altered and strict check-in/out times were inconvenient; this is in place during COVID. Housekeeping has been retrained using your review. Maintenance will be looking at your condition concerns. Thanks!

My family loved it here!
Vijay A. Mar 2021
The tranquility , the wooded creek and location are fantastic. The cabins seemed run down , poor beds. Appendages in names of amenities like AC, Heater , TV etc. Proce to value ratio at 400 usd did not meet expectations
Manager response:

Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us!

My friends and I loved this cabin! Saw so many animals and loved the location. Such a cozy little cabin with so much character.

We loved staying at the Olive Cabin! We had minimal complaints and would love to stay in one of these cabins again!
Kimberly R. Aug 2020
Absolutely had a great time! Definitely plan on going back the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the ad said that the jacuzzi was private and apparently we shared it. Which was really no problem just wasn't able to use it when I wanted.
