My wife and I visited the Blue Skies Retro Resort with 4 other couples to get away from the city for a few days. The amenities were awesome, private bathrooms were super clean and well designed, common living space was perfect and the fireplace provided a great ambiance. Being out under the stars was an absolute treat. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway from the city, close to Fredericksburg and Garrison Brothers. Pack like you're camping.

I booked the entire property for a bachelorette trip and we absolutely loved our stay. You can’t beat the view of the stars and we loved having the option of relaxing in the pool or heading into town to enjoy Fredericksburg.

We rented out the whole place for my daughters birthday and it was all so beautiful, clean and went beyond expectations. thank you so much!

We had an absolute blast at Blue Skies Retro Resort! Every aspect of the property was so well thought out. We will definitely be booking again!

Enjoyed a very peaceful weekend at Blue Skies Retro Resort this last weekend. The stars in the sky at night were incredible. Go prepared to kick back and relax! The record players in the vans were a nice touch as well as the private out door showers. One suggestion - it would be good if the resort added a large outdoor family style dining table. Would recommend renting out the whole place as we did - we all loved it.

The place was amazing and great for our sized party. The RVs were so clean and having a bathroom assigned for each RV was fantastic. The shower being covered but outdoor was so cool. I absolutely loved this place as well as all of my guest. Definitely will be back!

We had a heads up about this place since it opened, and finally were able to make it, while we’re in a holding pattern on our jobs in the NYC Restaurant biz. In a COVID pod with friends living in Fort Worth, Blue Skies was the perfect headquarters for a fabulous trip to Hill Country. Mid-week, in early December had us with the run of the place for our two day stay, but had any other sites been occupied, we still would have had plenty of room to ourselves. Some highlights: Jerry Jeff’s “Live from Luckenbach” on Miss Mary Longbottom’s record player. “Gettin’ by on gettin’ by’s my stock and trade... pickin’ up the pieces wherever they fall...” Midnight Manhattans for sunset cocktails. One night drinkin’ by the fire we built, because we could. Another night drinkin’ in, because we didn’t have to. Spectacularly clear starry skies. Good eats, and fun holiday strollin’ in Fredericksburg. Great little hike in Pedernales Falls State Park. A shower that was more an experience than a routine. Granting our friend’s request for the Soundtrack from Billie Jack. “‘Peace on Earth’ was all it said...” The chilly winds that prevailed during our stay kept us only from enjoying the pool. Somethin’ left for next time. We’ll be back.

The trailers are adorable. The bathrooms are super post. And the sunsets were amazing. I spent the weekend at Blues Skies with four friends and it was great to have our own space but also have a space where we could hang out outside, six feet away. It was the perfect vacation and I'll definitely be back <3

We loved getting to spend time together outdoors in a way that felt safe. Everything was perfectly thematic and cute, and we felt like they met all of our needs so we had a really nice, relaxing time. Will 100% be returning.

This was such a fun and unique resort to celebrate a 50th birthday. The layout was so well thought out...from the campers to the bathhouse and pavilion. My only request would be a little later check out. We very much enjoyed our time there!!
Lea A. Oct 2020
We rented all the trailers for a 60th Birthday party weekend. It was perfect! Having the whole place to ourselves was especially fun. Each trailer has it's own coffee maker, a single shot Keurig, and a nice sized fridge for multiple bottles of whatever adult beverage is preferred with room left over for snacks. The AC works great, and the beds are extremely comfy. It's especially nice to have the half bath for the middle of the night needs. AND each trailer has a record player with some really nice selections of classic albums. Sitting out on the "front porch" listening to oldies is so much fun!
The individual, private bathhouses are the BEST. A spacious room for hanging clothes and storing suitcases with all the extras, including robes. Each bathhouse holds bath towels and pool towels, a hairdryer, and all the extras you'd find in a fancy hotel. The outdoor showers are awesome and beautiful. There is even a small heater in the shower to take off the morning chill.
We sat up a couple of folding tables under the pavilion to hold our cooking and drinking needs and were able to grill dinner for 10 both nights. With its incredible fireplace and comfortable furniture, the pavilion was definitely the center of the action for the weekend. There was plenty of firewood available for beautiful fires each night.
Lucky for us, the weather cooperated, and we were able to spend both afternoons in and around the beautiful pool. There were enough umbrellas to give everyone who wanted shade a little reprieve from the hot sun and enough comfy lounge chairs for napping.
All in all, Blue Skies is a wonderful surprise and the perfect place to land in the Fredricksburg area, even if you have to share the dream with other campers. There is enough room to spread out and enjoy your own space without feeling crowded. It's as though the owners have thought of everything. OH WAIT, I think they have, and we will be back!

We rented all 5 shasta trailers so that we had the whole property to ourselves. The trailers have all the modern amenities - including sound machines :) We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the refrigerators in the trailers. The Spa bathrooms are adorable and spacious. Any questions were immediately addressed by the property manager. The location is great as it is 20ish minutes to Fredericksburg and 15 minutes to Enchanted Rock National Park. This is a great property!!!
Karly T. Aug 2020
Highly recommend this place! It’s so cute and the attention to detail on the design and amenities really made it special. I can’t wait to go back!!
Culley W. Aug 2020
We loved having space & private campers, but still being able to all be together at the community spots!
Stephanie H. Jul 2020
Our family rented out the entire resort for a social distance family vacation aka "cousin camp". What can I say, Blue Skies EXCEEDED our expectations. The trailers were roomy and chic while the pavilion was the perfect place to play games, sing karaoke, celebrate Christmas in July and eat and drink. The bathrooms and outdoor showers elevate the property to the next level. My mom said it best when she said "They really have something special here." Thank you Blue Skies for memories that will last us a lifetime - and see you next year for #cousincamp2021!!!
Samantha T. Jul 2020
We absolutely loved this girls weekend getaway! The trailers are super comfortable (with amazing AC) and the bathrooms are AH-MAZ-ING. It was easy for all of us to safely social distance, but still enjoy hanging at the pool. Would 100% recommend!
Jessica S. Jul 2020
We rented out the entire property for a friends weekend getaway. Blue Skies did not disappoint! This property is amazing. It is well taken care of, the bathrooms were spa like bathrooms, the pool and common lounge were fantastic. We have not one bad thing to say. The only thing I would recommend is maybe having a commercial sink in the common area. After cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner we really needed a large sink to wash out our tupperware and other things we used to cook with but like I said everything else was amazingly perfect!! Thank you, Blue Skies
Jennifer A. Jul 2020
We booked this for a birthday getaway and needed something to practice social distancing. It was perfect! The whole place was super clean and cute! My only feedback is that the WiFi could be better, we had a couple people trying to do some work and it was spotty. Also a full outdoor kitchen in the common area would have been nice. But it was everything we thought it was going to be!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Jennifer. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Melissa B. Jul 2020
We just spent a weekend at Blue Skies and are already looking at dates to return! We rented out the entire property and all five couples had nothing but positive things to say about the experience. The trailers are adorable, with every amenity you would need and the comfortable beds were an added bonus! The pool and common lounge area were fantastic...plenty of comfortable seating, umbrellas, fireplace with provided firewood, propane grill, and lots of lawn space. The bathrooms are next level....spacious, private, air conditioned, outdoor shower! Our weekend was very windy and the wind blowing through the palm trees throughout the property literally made us feel like we were in the tropics!
Every one of us commented on how every detail was thought of and we honestly could not complain about anything. I would highly recommend this property without hesitation and we cannot wait to return!
Jeff D. Jun 2020
We had a great time at Blue Skies. We rented the whole place for a group of couples. It was perfect! We’ll definitely do it again!

What is there NOT to "LOVE!" Beautifully kept Palm Springs Style Facility. It's The 1960s version of the group that included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., etc The Rat Pack meets Shasta City Ladies Featuring Miss Mary Longbottom (Seafoam), Miss Lottie (Pink), Miss Willie Mae (Red), Miss Estella (Blue), and Miss Abby (Yellow). I highly recommend booking the entire place and/or just a Shasta Lady for you and a friend. There are lots to do close by but why leave such a great little hidden gem. The outdoor shower was AWESOME! Their Robes ROCK! I can't wait to go back! My only regret is that I HAD to share this lovely place with so many on social media. I couldn't just keep it to myself and keep it hidden. This place (Blue Skies Retro Resort MUST be shared.
Jordan T. Jun 2020
We had a group of 12 & absolutely loved this property. It fit everyone comfortably and was overall such a great concept for groups. Will absolutely return.
Mike C. Nov 2019
Absolutely loved it. Quaint little trailers are so cozy, beautiful expansive views; sunrises sunsets, star gazing. The private bath area was awesome, very spacious. Cool retro decor - even has a record player in the trailer.
Chadwick S. Oct 2019
The retro trailers are unique and fun to stay in! The sunsets are amazing. Star gazing feet from your trailer door is wonderful. Bathrooms with outdoor covered private showers are better than most hotels. Pool or pavilion, it's so chill hanging out here. Keep digitals at home, this place a great weekend getaway!
