Kandace L. Apr 2022
Everything about this stay was great. Location was just rite with everything in walking distance, nice parking, very clean and beautiful. I have no complaints.
Douglas S. Mar 2022
Loved the little cottage. It was everything we wanted, except we never saw a breakfast in the morning.
Manager response:
Hello Douglas, thank you for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Blacksmith Quarters on Barons Creek: The Louise. We do not offer breakfast as an amenity. We apologize you expected to have breakfast. We look forward to hosting you again. Thank you!
Alisabeth H. Jan 2022
I hate to leave a good review and exposure the amazing hidden gem. The location is perfect, tucked away right on Main Street. It’s a perfect luxurious relaxing and private large cottage. It was very clean! Self check in and out was easy. There is no one in property, and no way to get ahold of anyone, that is the only concerning thing if an emergency came up. I’m already planning another trip there again.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay, Alisabeth! We have a big team of local managers and 24/7 guest service agents ready to help our guests in case of any questions or issues they may have. We look forward to hosting you again!
Janet M. Dec 2021
Very nice! Exactly as pictured. Close to everything. Absolutely no problems.
Meaghin S. Nov 2021
Very clean facility with quick access to the shops and restaurants. The grounds were so quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend. The hot tub was an excellent amenity with lots of privacy. The mattress was nice but not the best in terms of comfort.
Manager response:
Meaghin, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We apologize if the bed was not suitable for your needs. Our standards include providing our guests with the most comfortable stay. We will pass your feedback to our property manager for review, who will work with the homeowner for updates. We hope to host you again for a more pleasurable stay!
Debra C. Nov 2021
Great location. Quiet. Beautiful.
The fountain wasn’t running, and we could have used more towels, but we loved the place & location & would stay again.
Thank you.
Karen H. Nov 2021
This was a great location and venue for a business meeting to include enjoying the local treasures around Fredericksburg. The staff were super accommodating to all of our requests and the facilities were amazing! Would definitely recommend!
John K. Oct 2021
This place is conveniently located right off the main drag of the city. The room was amazing! The shower is huge and the private hot tub is just what we needed to wind down before bed. The fireplace was a nice touch as well. All the extras, like the heater in the bathroom and the robes were nice too!
Patricia M. Oct 2021
This house is located in the heart of Main Street where all the bars and restaurants are.
Samuel R. Aug 2021
Beds were comfortable, property was exceptional, location was so convenient, we were able to walk to all our destinations on Main st.
Abdulazeez S. Jul 2021
Great property, near all restaurants on Main Street, clean and well maintained
Beth S. Jun 2021
Perfect for our quick stay In Fredericksburg! Very clean, spacious, and inviting. The property provides easy access to all that Fredericksburg has to offer, but is uniquely tucked away to provide a very quiet, intimate setting.
Bobby J. May 2021
The cleanliness and well appointed cottage exceeded our expectations.
The location is perfect, you can walk anywhere from the cottage to the streets of Fredericksburg.

Everything you could ask for a couples get away! Wouldn’t change a thing! Great property!
Diane S. Oct 2020
Location was near local attractions, but very quiet and relaxing. The fireplace and hot tub were great! The room was nicely decorated and the grounds were beautiful.
Ella E. Oct 2020
Hot tub, fireplace, and a little peaceful get away with a sweet shaded porch to drink coffee. We so enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our anniversary weekend. Comfortable and spotlessly clean.
Timothy R. Sep 2020
Cottage was beautiful & private hot tub was a treat. However, old hot tub cover over newer tub was almost impossible for us to put back on it was so heavy. Bed was hard, hard foam & no way 5'1" could get on without a chair!! But the worst part was no breakfast or being able to sit outside. Some details that made the costly accommodations seem special was the beautiful lighted pond but when we arrived it was a green murky swamp! Horrible looking & smelled like it looked. The next day a young man poured several gallons of bleach into it & turned the fountains on & it still looked ugly & no lights but the bleach smell was too strong to be outside. Very disappointed in the aesthetical value.
Manager response:
Hi, Timothy! We are so glad you enjoyed the beautiful cottage and are sorry to read anything detracted from that. The hot tub cover is getting replaced, and the broken fountain has been fixed. Thank you!
David S. Sep 2020
Footage was cute, clean, and well kept. The location in Fredericksburg on Main Street was the best part.
Lisa B. Aug 2020
Very close walking to shopping in Fredericksburg but too expensive considering the amenities.
Mark K. Mar 2020
The places Vacasa has in Fredericksburg are always very nice. Their staff is amazing if you need anything.
Paige S. Mar 2020
Beautiful, comfortable, well built cottages with fireplace and huge bath and private hot tub right on Main Street walking distance to everything but set back so no noise. Parking is close and safe. Best is that when I accidentally left my IPad and earrings behind they secured them and mailed them to me!!
Paul C. Feb 2020
Outstanding accommodations in a great Texas themed environment. This was our second trip.
Michael M. Feb 2020
Beautiful cottage in a convenient location. Amenities and service far below the room itself and the cost, though.
Manager response:
Michael, thank you for your feedback following your stay. We are glad to hear you enjoyed this lovely cottage. We are sorry to hear you didn't find the amenities and services offered to be a good value and we will take your comments under advisement. We hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.
Cari O. Jan 2020

The cottages were absolutely beautiful! Location was awesome, tucked away just enough off of Main Street. Quiet yet convenient. Will definitely be staying again.
John S. Aug 2019
Great rooms. Quiet location. Walking distance to everything on Main Street.
Carole J. Jun 2019
A hidden jewel in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas. Easy access to restaurants and shopping. Close to many wineries, also. The atmosphere has a hill country vibe and the living quarters has a perfect layout to relax and enjoy. Our “casita or living quarters” had beautiful bedroom including a king sized bed, seating area with gas fireplace, kitchenette, large walk-in shower for two and spacious bathroom. The private hot tub was the “icing on the cake”, so to speak. We could have easily stayed longer! Did I mention the outdoor water feature? Sitting on the front porch area indulging a glass of local wine listening to the gentle trickle of the waterfall while your eyes follow the beautifully landscaped man made water feature.
A perfect getaway nestled among the quaint little German town.
We will definitely return for another visit in the future!!!
William J. May 2019
We really enjoyed our stay. Nice location. Able to walk to our eateries and shops. Clean and quiet. We will definitely be back!
Matt W. Apr 2019
We loved the location and the accommodations. The rooms were spacious. The shower fantastic. We look forward to our next visit.
Leslie V. Apr 2019
The location and quality of Blacksmith Quarters was perfect. From the relaxing surroundings to the gas fireplace, to the private hot tub, it was a perfect location for what we desired out of our hill country stay.
Jean O. Feb 2019

Alisan H. Jan 2019
We had a great time - perfect little spot for multiple couples to meet up for a long weekend!
Joseph O. Jan 2019
We loved the small cottage get away! Great gas fireplace and own personal hot tub! I know where I’m going the next time we travel to Fredericksburg! Thank you
Chris L. Oct 2018

Edward M. Jul 2018
Comfortable room with king bed; nice pastry to welcome us; stocked fridge; private hot tub; great double headed shower built for two; great centralized location. What else needs to be said? Try it!!!
jose z. Jun 2018
So nice
Charles & Glenda S. May 2018
Door would not lock without lifting and repeated slamming. Property management was aware of the issue prior to our arrival. This inconvenience detracted from an otherwise excellent room and location with adequate parking and easy access to Main St.
Manager response:
We apologize for any inconvenience the door posed and have since taken care of it. Thank you!
Larry & Susan F. May 2018
Staff efficient and friendly. Cottage comfortable. Did not like the coffee machine and filter. You need to get regular coffe attachments. We all went out and bought our own coffee capsules.
John R. Mar 2018
Super clean, perfect location, would recommend to anyone. Will only stay here when we go back.
Debbie B. Mar 2018
This place is perfect! From the décor to the cleanliness. Every detail was beautiful!
Michael N. Mar 2018
If you want a very unique experience, we would recommend Vacasa! The grounds are so lovely, making your stay very tranquil. The cottages are very high-end with lovely furniture, fireplace, and a fabulous shower!! The staff is extremely attentive and helpful. Parking is easy, and close to all the shops and restaurants. You will not be disappointed!!
Andrea A. Feb 2018
The cottages on this property are lovely and perfect for a little getaway.
Cutter B. Feb 2018
My wife and I stayed here for our 1st Anniversary and we were over joyed by the condition of the property and the hospitality of the staff. We look forward to staying here in the future. The only complaint is the price even for a holiday weekend we paid over $900 dollars for two nights after fees and taxes. We would suggest this place for a special occasion but we wont be able to stay here often because of price.
Matthew B. Feb 2018
The location is unbeatable. Right on Main Street, offering plenty to do. We loved it and our room was unbelievable.
Brenden F. Jan 2018
We chose this location for a short vacation between Christmas and new years and couldn't have been happier. While it was a bit cold for a couple days (you never know with TX weather) having access to a fireplace and hot tub more than made up for that. We were also close enough to downtown to walk to dinner and drinks at night and easily able to get to wineries and enchanted rock during the day. We will look to stay here every time we visit Fredericksburg in the future.
William S. Dec 2017
Thanks for the beautiful surroundings, comfortable room, and quiet setting!!
James M. Aug 2017
I have a Tesla Model X and I do like the fact that the Blacksmiths Quarters on Barons Creek has now added an electric vehicle charger which is completely awesome I come from Auston and drive in and can charge my Tesla overnight. Also just for the record the coffee cake that they give you for free is a German coffee cake that is absolutely the They now have my business because of the electric charger and the coffee cake and that's it... close the case... Bingo!
