Stylish Cottage with Private Hot Tub, WiFi, Central AC & Fireplace

*This home does have an unmonitored water feature; as an extra safety precaution, this home is not recommended for guests traveling with children under the age of 17.

With a spa-like bathroom, charming antique details, and a private hot tub, this romantic Fredericksburg cottage is the perfect escape for lovers! The studio is near the heart of the community best known for its wineries, rich German heritage, and charming antique shops, and you're just a short walk away from it all.

The Texas condo is located in the Blacksmith Quarters along Barons Creek. The European-style cottage is within walking distance to fine dining, wine tasting rooms, and historic attractions like the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site.

It's easy to fall in love with the grandeur of this cottage, which boasts vaulted, reclaimed wood ceilings, a gorgeous stone fireplace, and a unique cow-skin area rug. Whether sinking into a leather chair by the fire or snuggling while watching movies in bed, you'll feel instantly relaxed in the space.

The galley kitchenette offers the essentials for snack storage (and for preparing picnics!) as it provides a miniature sink, microwave, coffeemaker, and refrigerator. Chances are you'll use the kitchenette for heating up leftovers, as you're surrounded by diverse cuisine including German food at Rathskeller, Italian food at Pasta Bella, and Tex-Mex from Hondo's On Main!

Before bed, relax in the handsome wrought-iron bed with a movie on the flatscreen TV, or soak with your sweetheart in your private hot tub! Don't forget to rinse off in the fantastic walk-in shower which treats guests to two showerheads.

Whether getting ready to tuck in for the night or preparing for date night on the town, this gorgeous bathroom with a double-sink vanity will make you feel pampered. By nightfall, you'll rest easy in the king-size bed.

The next morning, start your day refreshed listening to the creek rush in the courtyard, then make your way to the Old German Bakery for sweets and coffee at Java Ranch Espresso Bar & Cafe. When you feel like shopping, Main Street is lined with charming shops and antique stores, and the nearby Wildseed Farms is a beautiful place to pick wildflowers or look for garden decor.

Split your time between the tasting rooms and historic sites! Sip your way through Fredericksburg Winery, Grape Creek Vineyards On Main, and Fiesta Winery Fredericksburg, then make it home for a nap before dinner! The next day, discover the region's rich heritage at the National Museum of the Pacific War, Der Stadt Friedhof cemetery, and Pioneer Museum Complex.

You won't find a more intimate setting or stylish cottage amenities than in this adorable Texas Hill Country cottage!

This is a disappointing trip for sure, I looked this trip because of the Jacuzzi and it was broken. The Wi-Fi was spotty and almost impossible to use for a computer or phone, the fact that I paid almost $400 a night and it doesn’t even offer towel, replenishing or lighthouse. Keeping is ridiculous. I will definitely stay somewhere else next time.
Manager response:
We're sorry if you were expecting daily housekeeping during your stay, Kevin. A number is provided for when guests need clean towels or linen. The WiFi is the best available in the area, and you have been compensated for the hot tub. Thank you!
Raymond S. Nov 2022
Wonderful accommodations and beautiful room and setting. We’ll surely return here when visiting Fredericksburg.
Joel D. Oct 2022
Location was excellent, updated, clean and nice. Will definitely stay here again next trip to Fredricksburg.
Laura S. Oct 2022
The Betty was beautiful, romantic and the perfect location for our getaway.
Richard K. Oct 2022
Generally liked it but not enough hand towels and bad internet/phone connection
Manager response:
Richard, thank you for sharing your feedback, as we use your comments as a means to continually improve. We hope to host you again.
Douglas N. Oct 2022
The room was quiet, comfortable and the bed was outstanding. Everything you want in a brief staycation!
Sara W. Aug 2022
Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and wine tastings! Beautiful decor and the hot tub was wonderful.
Daniel G. Jun 2022
The double shower was probably my favorite thing. The hot tub in the back was nice, the fireplace made for romance. Enjoyed my stay and it was located close enough that we walked everywhere and were surrounded by amazing food
Daniel M. Apr 2022
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by our cottage. It surpassed our expectations. It was clean, stocked with everything we could want, quiet and peaceful which was surprising being right on main, and just 1/2 block from all the action! Blacksmith Quarters was as comfortable as being in my own home. Great experience. We will be returning often!
Shana M. Apr 2022
We stayed at the Betty to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We absolutely loved it! Room was very clean and beautifully decorated. It’s walking distance to shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, bars - basically everything. The cabins are tucked behind a wine tasting room so it’s very private. Hot tub was great! Perfect place for a romantic get away!
Brett T. Apr 2022
We love the peacefulness and the proximity to everything..

The room was cozy, clean & ready for us at check-in. My only complaints are their was no Keurig (had a cheap drip that got water everywhere) and the window over the door, while allowing natural light in during the day, made for a hard nights sleep with all the porch lights coming through.
Melissa C. Feb 2022
The keys did not work when we arrived had to wait 15-20 min. One of the mini blinds didn’t go up so there wasn’t a lot of lighting coming in. Other than that the location is perfect. You can’t hear any traffic very cozy and we would definitely stay again.
Manager response:
Hi, Melissa! We appreciate you staying with us and leaving your review. Mini-blinds have been ordered and will be installed once they arrive. The Kaba lock system requires keys to be programmed the day of arrival, and since this was a 'same day' booking, we did miss getting those keys ready for you. We sincerely apologize. Hopefully we do get to host you again someday. Thank you!
Angie W. Feb 2022
The Betty was everything we thought it would be. The Fireplace was on and the Hot Tub as ready to go, making us feel welcomed. It was nice and cozy, no issues at all. The only issue we had, was the time we did spend in our room, it would have been nice to have a little faster internet and for the TV to be a little bigger. Overall it was a nice and we would recommend for our family and friends to stay.
Carl B. Feb 2022
Quaint wonderful place just off Main Street Fredericksburg. Fireplace was a bonus!
Chad C. Nov 2021
The perfect Fredericksburg getaway accommodations with a perfect location.
Wayne M. Nov 2021
Quiet, peaceful setting
Elizabeth P. Oct 2021
Wonderful rooms & exactly as pictured. Right downtown, but tucked away & secluded so it’s nice & quiet in the evenings. Room was very comfortable and had everything you needed.
Charles F. Sep 2021
The cottage was very comfortable and well kept. There is a small watercourse through the grounds, which makes for a relaxing background sound. Walkable to many of the Main St shops and restaurants.
Denise P. Sep 2021
We loved everything about the place. Location is great! Enjoyed sitting outside on the porch and just relaxed and enjoyed the sound of the creek. Great sized room and bathroom. Hot tub in the back. Kitchenette was a great bonus. Great hidden away gem!
Susan T. Sep 2021
We loved it here! Very quaint, great location and the service was excellent! We’ll definitely go back. Would highly recommend
Maria Susie S. Aug 2021
The outdoor hot tub was so romantic! The home was beautiful, clean and very welcoming!
Shelly C. Jun 2021
Everything was amazing except the bed is very hard and uncomfortable. Very clean, cool, and the hot tub was a great plus.
Jennifer V. Mar 2021
It was very clean and so nice. It’s hidden away from town although you are right in town. We will definitely stay again!
Karen B. Feb 2021
Second time staying at the Blacksmith. We love it. Perfect location. Clean, well-stocked rooms. No complaints. Will stay here again.
Gasper S. Nov 2020
This property was the perfect romantic getaway. Located just a few minutes walk from Fredericksburg shops dining and nightlife. The room was perfect, Chilly night was warmed by the gas fireplace. Courtyard stream immediately set the atmosphere. Hot tub was too hot to enjoy so we had to let it cool down for a day before we could take a dip, but other than that it was the perfect romantic getaway. Highly recommended !!!!! 5 Jalapenos Man !
Caroline G. Nov 2020
Place was perfectly located and made access to Main Street very easy. Also is the main thoroughfare out to the wineries. Rooms were very clean and little touches like breakfast pastries, bottled water and coffee were greatly appreciated. We will be back.
Wes T. Oct 2020
We have been to Fredericksburg many times. This was our first stay at The Blacksmith Quarters on Baron Creek. It will not be our last. The room (The Betty) and staff were excellent. Great location with an easy walk to all the shops.
Bob B. Aug 2020
This is a great little cottage with a luxurious shower located right on main street a block from the Nimitz museum and many great restaurants.
Kirk M. Jul 2020
Highly recommend staying here.
Mark K. Jul 2020
A great place to stay. The man made Brook was a wonderful touch. Sitting on the front porch listening to the water move was soothing after a long day.
Debbie F. Jun 2020
Tranquility at its best! Fell in love with the landscaping, the running water Thru the property, and an upscale cottage feel.
Cedric A. Jun 2020
Very close to Main Street and all the restaurants etc. beautiful property
Wylea B. May 2020
My husband and I spent a few days here to just getaway and relax. We loved how clean and quiet it was. Even though it was in the middle of town it was extremely quiet and private. We will be back.
Steven T. May 2020
Love the location on Main Street, but also the privacy and serenity of the Prooerty. Rooms weee amazing.
Samuel P. Feb 2020
This place is great! Tranquil yet a short walk from the action.
Ron 2. Dec 2019
Just as advertised, just as nice as the pictures showed, great location on Main St but sits off the road far enough not to have the street noise. Our fifth visit to Fredericksburg favorite place by far.
Khanh T. Dec 2019
I booked this place at the last minute for my birthday weekend. We were immediately blown away the second we opened the door. The cabin was warm and cozy, the fireplace was on, and the hot tub was ready to go! The place is sooooooooo clean, the bed sooooooooo comfy, the location is perfect, and just everything is phenomenal. I will definitely book again. THAT SHOWER!!!!!!!!! Don't bother looking anywhere else.
Michael P. Nov 2019
Loved the tranquility of the Blacksmith Quarters in Fredericksburg. Everything was top notch. When we entered our cabin the fireplace was on and the TV was on. The private, secluded hot tub was already heated and ready for us. Our own private parking made the stay great given the parking limitations on main Street. It was all fantastic and we would recommend it to everyone.
Kristy L. Nov 2019
Great location and clean!! I would definitely stay here again! Perfect for a weekend getaway!
Dale P. Sep 2019
Great weekend, good location.
Nathan M. Sep 2019
What a great place to stay.. We will be going back to stay in the Betty!!!
Cindy M. Sep 2019
It was great, just pricey. If cheaper, I would have given 5 stars. Pretty unusual to get your own hot tub. And I went through Booking, just because the computer took me there. Next time I'll try Vacasa direct.
Joshua M. Apr 2019
Right on the strip down town. Very clean, beautiful, and comfortable. Nice touches to welcome us!
Francine W. Apr 2019
Location amazing
Kimberley M. Apr 2019
Perfect for a close-in and quiet stay, with amazing German pastries. The cabin and grounds were beautiful; already planning a return visit.
THOMAS G. Mar 2019
Very nice property, conveniently located to town. Would definitely stay there again.

Loved the location to Main Street and quiet charm of this cottage. Running water outside drowned any noise from the street and fireplace to switch on by the wall was very chic! Homemade pastry upon arrival was a welcome treat and our own private hot tub was clean and hot and just off the bathroom so easy to dash back in since it was cold out. Robes are provided as well as hairdryer and light-up makeup mirror! Coffee maker with coffee as well as orange juice and waters in the mini fridge were a welcome relief compared to regular hotels that stock a pricey mini bar. Bed linens were cozy and clean and leather chairs at the foot of the bed made it a nice spot to sit and have coffee and pastry by the fire.

The only thing I would suggest is to make the WiFi more reliable. It was spotty at best and since so many rely on their phones, it was the only thing that was problematic during our stay.

We will definitely be going back!! Thank you!!

We stayed in the Betty unit and it was amazing!
Jenny E. Oct 2018

Kimmie S. Aug 2018
This was a wonderful and clean place to stay.
lynsie a. Jun 2018
truly loved everything about this cottage!!! will for sure be back this year
Wayne K. Jun 2018
The place was beautiful and cozy. The only things that were upsetting was ice machine didn’t work and the a/c wasn’t cold enough for the money you pay.
Bobby G. Apr 2018
It was so peaceful
John P. Mar 2018
I would highly recommend staying at The Blacksmith Quarters.

Beautiful cottage in a great location. Perfectly clean with a lot of great touches. Very personalized service. Very tight parking but secure.
Cari L. Oct 2017
Beautiful property. Located in the middle of town but you would never know it once you have entered the parking lot. So quiet and tranquil. I can't wait to go back.

Beautiful and peaceful. Property manager so friendly and helpful.
Raymond C. May 2016
I highly recommend Blacksmith Quarters on Barron's Creek and will reserve it for our next visit. Ideal location - impeccable landscaping with a beautiful water feature !
James S. May 2016
Very nice place. Overpriced for what it was, but definitely a nice room. Jacuzzi didn't work and vacasa is far away and unresponsive, so that's a gamble. There appears to be no support on site. Cool fireplace. Some breakfast in room so that was good. Great location. Would prob stay again.
Manager response:
We apologize that we have been slow to respond to guest emails and phone calls; we have experienced a large increase in volume and are currently hiring more hands to assist us in better handling our inquiries.
Kathy B. May 2016
Not hot breakfast, high price for amenities.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read about your disappointments. While the breakfast provided is not hot, the pastries are wonderful!
John Q. Apr 2016
For us the perfect position, walking distance of everywhere we wanted to be. The cottage was clean, comfortable, well equipped and considering how close to main street, it was very quiet. After a busy day of being a tourist, so relaxing to sit on the patio and listen to the water of the water feature (a few fish would have been good!). The milk, orange, cereals, cinnamon roll cake was a pleasant surprise too.
