As advertised

There were several outlets not in working order. The hot tub was not working. The front door dead bolt doesn’t engage. The ice machine was out of service. At this price point, you expect everything to be in working order. The room is beautiful though.

The ac never cooled the room lower than 78 during the day. There was a mildew smell in the bathroom but none visible. The sheets were not soft. $1600 for a weekend and was not comfortable. Location was good.

Tiny home was super cute and location was perfect for an afternoon of shopping and hanging out. Only negative-this place had a hot tub and the jets not working and 100 degrees (way too hot).. Management made it right, refunded partial rental money back. Communication great and easy access
Suzanne S. Apr 2022
Wonderful location within walking distance of everything! Spacious room for two people with a fireplace, large shower and loved the private hot tub. Totally worth it and added a special feel to the weekend
Erica G. Mar 2022
We loved how close it was to Main Street and shopping. We had a safe place to park our car and the property was clean and quiet! The room was extremely clean and stocked for our visit! We will stay there again our next visit!
Sarah B. Mar 2022
Everything about this property was easy. Thanks for sharing all the details in advance. The ease of turning on the fireplace was a fun bonus.
Alei O. Jan 2022
My significant other and I stayed in this unit over New Year and it was absolutely beautiful. We live close by but wanted to have a staycation and the room is what made the whole trip worthwhile. The fireplace and private hot tub made for an amazing romantic getaway. Definitely recommend this unit as well as all other cottages on this property.
Nancy R. Nov 2021
Loved the quaint little cabins! Perfect for a weekend getaway!
Valerie T. Aug 2021
Very nice, well maintained, great location, quiet, clean and easy instructions for entry and exit. Pillows were too flat and firm for my taste - upgraded pillows would have earned 5 stars! I would recommend to others (but suggest bring-your-own-pillow)!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your comments regarding the pillows onto our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Jason G. Aug 2021
Amazing little place close to the strip. Was tucked in and quiet. Very clean and well taken care of. The private hot tub was a plus. Will be back again
Erica T. May 2021
We just loved this property. It was set back from the main road very quite and secluded ... but walking distance to the entire downtown area. It was clean, perfectly furnished and had everything you needed for a quick getaway. The special touch of breakfast items just sealed the deal on making this cottage the best place to stay. We loved sitting on the front porch listening to the stream running through the complex and the private hot tub on the back deck was much needed after a day of hiking up Enchanted Rock. Best Vacation Rental Ever!!!
Gretchen J. May 2021
On Main St. Fredricksburg. Cute small cabin with large shower. Waterfall outside so you do not hear traffic on street! Very nice private gem tucked away on Main St
Lisa B. Jan 2021
Could not get In. Frig is hot and had to leave after one night because of family emergency and could not get anyone to respond. Nice place but very inconsiderate. No person to person at all.
Manager response:
Lisa, thank you for booking with us! We are sorry we were not able to provide you with a positive experience. The fridge is set at 45 degrees and we do not recommend guests adjust the settings to ensure health and safety.

We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!

Quaint, stylish and beautifully appointed historical style cottage. We had a wonderful stay here. It’s cleverly laid out with great facilities, huge shower and an amazing hot tub and really tasty muffins for breakfast. It’s within walking (staggering) distance of all the bars and restaurants and is picture perfect. A great stay
Brandon B. Sep 2020
Cozy and romantic. Can’t go wrong with this little hideaway place.
Casey S. Jul 2020
This place was amazing. My wife and I really enjoyed it. It was perfect for a couple with the cozy king bed, fireplace, large shower and hot tub. We highly recommend it and will definitely stay there again!
Michelle R. Jul 2020
I loved the location. It is located toward the end of Main street. Close enough to walk to all the shops. We loved the hot tub. However for the price, I would have liked a later check out time. 10:00 AM doesn't give me enough time to sleep in, enjoy a cup of coffee and pack up. Overall a nice place.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Michelle. We are glad you enjoyed this location and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by our earlier check-out time. This is a temporary change to ensure that extended cleaning time is available for our housekeeping team as a precaution to COVID-19. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Ashley D. Mar 2020
Perfect location and well equipped.
Ben B. Feb 2020
Loved everything about it. Location was so close to everything. Cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed. Loved the fireplace too. We will be back
Philip W. Jan 2020
Everything was pure class!

My wife and I needed a little getaway at the last minute and this was one of the few accommodations available with amenities I wanted. Boy, did we luck out! It’s beautiful inside with everything you could need or want down to the wine glasses and mini fridge. The area is close to town but feels removed and extremely peaceful. If we go back, we will definitely seek out this location to stay again.
JIMMY O. Oct 2019
We loved the cottage. The only thing we would change is the mattress. It was very very very firm.
Manager response:
We are glad you had such a great stay at the cottage! We are sorry that the bed did not suit your preferences. We hope to host you again soon!
Casey H. Jun 2019
Loved the cottage. Very roomy inside
David W. May 2019
Very nice place. Location could not have been better. Quiet and beautiful. Everything is as advertised.
Krysten C. Mar 2019
This place was exactly what we hoped. It was clean, cozy and the fireplace made it romantic. It’s secluded enough not to hear street traffic but close enough to the shops to walk. Perfect location for a romantic getaway
Pete M. Mar 2019
A great get away cottage with everything less a bathtub.
We worth the stay and close to everything. Secluded and restful. The staff get me 5 stars as well.
We will be back!
Robert F. Dec 2018
Such a relaxing trip. The property is beautiful. Loved the privacy of it and the location. We will definitely be returning!
Kristi H. Nov 2018
The cottage is located just off of Main street on the east end, so it's very convenient for walking to restaurants and shops. Nice, quiet development with only eight cottages. Clean and comfy with a very nice shower and bedding. Keurig style coffee maker, cereal, milk, OJ and fresh pastries each day were a bonus.
Rick G. Sep 2018
The cabin is nice! For the price for a 19 hour stay for my wife and I to relax, I don’t feel we should have to take the trash out and pre clean the cabin prior to housekeeping arriving after our departure. $400 was not worth it.
Jonathan W. Sep 2018
This is a great place to stay. Quiet and very comfortable. The room was in excellent condition and the staff was friendly and easy to get along with. The rooms were well kept and I walked away feeling rested and taken care of.
Laura E. Aug 2018
This was a great space and was very private feeling. We loved the hot tub and how close it was to everything. It was a little overpriced for what you get but it was still lovely.
JONAH B. Jun 2018
There was a mix-up on the first accommodation. I placed a call and within a few minutes, we had a local agent on the phone. Tiffany was awesome! We cannot thank her enough! She took a really bad start to our anniversary trip and made it really memorable experience. This cottage is nicely spaced, very clean and smells new. The bathroom is spacious with a large shower and a private toilet. Soap, shampoo and lotion are by the sink. There are separate towels for the private Jacuzzi tub on the back patio. There are some dishes and utensils if you need them. This is a single cottage (not a duplex) and the ice machine is right outside. There is a coffee pot with coffee, tea and cocoa. Microwave and mini-fridge. There are several other cottages in the complex but we did not hear any of them. Parking is a bit tight but it is a short walk to the street. The entrance is easy to miss if you are not watching closely. Located right at the beginning/end of Main St. It would be easier to walk down Main than drive and try to find parking.
Jason M. Jun 2018
Great little place that is about 2 blocks from the center of town. The only issues I had here was that the A/C couldn’t keep the room cool as we wanted and the kids ice maker didn’t work at all. Other than that everything was very nice
Erica C. May 2018
My husband and I booked this property as a quiet get away and it was beyond perfect! This cottage was immaculate, we loved all the amenities that they provided (especially the pastry)! We will definitely be booking the same property again!
Christopher P. May 2018
House was great. The community pool was not working and neither was the ice machine. Hot tub was a bonus. Location is key.
Aaron H. Mar 2018
Great place to stay. Hadn’t been to Fredricksburg in years. Perfect location on Main Street. Everything is within walking distance. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Nice private hot tub. Great place for a romantic getaway.
Jess P. Nov 2017
The water feature was very relaxing to sit and listen to.Everything was clean and in order. The location is great, you can walk to every thing on Main Street. Did I mention the private hot tub? Very nice!! The daily pastry was to die for. A really nice place to stay. The office staff was very friendly and helpful.
Jennifer A. Oct 2017
We greatly enjoyed the ambience and privacy of the property. We were a bit skeptical about how private the patio / hot tub would be (and that is a big reason why we booked this property!), but were pleasantly surprised. Everything was clean and in order and tastefully put together. We would certainly stay here next time and perhaps rent one of the back cottages overlooking the woods.
Federico P. Sep 2017
Very romantic, quiet gateway in the middle of Fredericksburg- conveniently located and excellent facilities - can't wait to stay here again.
Tanya B. May 2017
We loved our anniversary weekend here and will return next year!!!!
John P. Apr 2017
Really nice new cottages off the road but close to everything. Great staff at Vacassa too! We will be back!
Michael R. Mar 2017
Stayed here with my wife for two days. Great place and great location. Within walking distance of many places. We would love to return one day.
Bryce N. Mar 2017
Loved this place, especially the hot tub, the walking distance to everything, and the luxury!
Christine D. Mar 2017
The cottage was very cozy! The fireplace is great too. Will definitely stay again!

Stacey was very helpful!
Linda W. Feb 2017
Appreciated the privacy in the middle of a very busy city. A little jewel tucked away from the hustle and bustle. LOVED the private hot tub and the fireplace. Great for the chilly evening.
Heather R. Feb 2017
This place was very nice and clean, and well maintained. Easily accessible to all the amenities of the town, within walking distance. My only complaint is the price per night. Otherwise, a great place!
Paul C. Feb 2017
Such a clean peaceful stay. We went during the week and felt like we were the only ones there. Centrally located. We walked everywhere we wanted to go to. Beds were so comfy and CLEAN!! Recommend for romantic getaways. We enjoyed our anniversary!
Nancy S. Feb 2017
This is a very special place so if you have a special event coming up, be sure to stay here. You will love it!!
