Enchanting downtown cottage w/copper soaking tub & courtyard
This enchanting Fredericksburg chalet celebrates the history and romance of bygone days, offering unbelievable furnishings (like an in-suite copper soaking tub) and the perfect downtown location for sweethearts. You won't find a more romantic place to call home while exploring the region's rich German history, wineries, and antique shops! A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.
Eden’s Gate is a uniquely fabulous home situated above the charming Lone Star Candy Bar on Main Street. Located in the heart of the city, you’re within walking distance to wineries and the Fredericksburg Brewing Company, antique stores, and swanky restaurants like August E’s.
The charming Texas vacation rental provides a private entrance to the cobblestone courtyard. The entrance alone is like stepping through a secret garden, and the space is enclosed by a hand-made wooden fence and pergola that is nothing short of a work of art! Sip espresso or vino around the shabby chic bistro table, or surprise your loved one with a gourmet picnic in the lush green backyard. An upstairs patio offers the best seat in the house to see the stars at night.
Inside will instantly wow you with tall ceilings and dramatic decor to inspire your romantic getaway. The breaking Fredericksburg cottage provides a fairytale-like setting light by ornate chandeliers. Rustic hardwood floors, a reclaimed wood ceiling, and exposed stone accent walls add an organic touch to the space that's made elegant by lace curtains, quilts, and area rugs.
The one-bedroom suite comfortably lodges two guests and offers an adjoining bathroom and a recently-updated shower. A weathered copper soaking tub takes center stage in this romantic suite, and creates a calming luxurious atmosphere. Buy lavender and wildflowers from Wildseed Farms in town to treat your loved one to a special bath. Beyond the tub is full bathroom that's equally impressive, with a handsome travertine tile walk-in shower illuminated by a stained glass window.
When not enjoying a spa-like experience at home, unwind with a movie or music on the DVD/CD player, or stream music via the free WiFi. The loveseat is nestled in its own private nook and offers the perfect place to recount the day’s adventures or curl up with a good book. Candles in the decorative fireplace create the perfect mood just before you sink into the queen-size bed for sleep. Each morning, walk to the Old German Bakery & Restaurant for decadent sweets that you can store and re-heat in your kitchenette.
The nearby community offers something for everyone! History buffs will love exploring the National Museum of the Pacific War, Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site, or Pioneer Museum Complex. Pack your hiking shoes to wander the unique landscape of Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, or wear your dress shoes instead to view Texas Hill vineyards like Grape Creek Vineyards. When you're ready to make dinner reservations, you have the choice of international fare, from Italy, Germany, and America (including Tex-Mex and BBQ)!
This Texas Hill Country cottage is truly inspiring, and will provide an intimate getaway with you and that someone special.

Wonderful and eclectic hidden gem right in the heart of Fredericksburg. Very hidden and very convenient. Wonderful host and exceptionally clean. Thank you
John M.Jun 2022
We enjoyed our stay, chairs aren't comfortable . We are older couple and chairs aren't back friendly. Overall the room was very relaxing.
Carrie T.Mar 2022
Unique, beautiful, elegant, private and you’re right on Main Street. Perfect place to stay!! Definitely will stay again.
Charles R.Mar 2022
Was undecided on rating 3 or 4? It's in a Great Location but didn't really feel like it was worth the $300.00 per night.
1) Be Aware that website states you have One Site Parking, this is not true. You have to park in the Visitors Center lot which is couple blocks from the room, way too far if you have any bags!! Second option is to circle the block for half an hour trying to find an empty main street parking space!
2) Room was clean but not "real clean", it was dusty and a little musty, needs a really good Spring Cleaning.
3) Light bulbs out in the bathroom and some out in the room lighting? Had to remove couple from chandeliers to replace in bathroom. Not really a bid deal for me to do but would have been difficult or impossible for someone not used to handyman work. Items like these should have been noticed by the cleaning crew and attended to???
3) Leg fell off the little table by the love seat when my wife moved it, not hard to fix, had to tighten the leg screws up. Chair by the breakfast table is wobbly and leg is loose, would hate to see what would happen if an overweight person tried to sit?
!! Enjoyed our stay but just felt for $300 a night we overpaid for what we got!!!
Hi, Charles! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your visit. Maintenance has addressed the light bulbs and damaged furniture, and housekeeping has done a thorough cleaning. We apologize for those disappointments and hope to better impress you next time. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Kate G.Mar 2022
Loved the decor and extras like drinks and snacks. Beautiful soaking copper tub and antique armoire with mini fridge, microwave and wet bar.
Water took a long time to heat up and parking is not close to entrance so be prepared and don’t overpack.
Overall nice rental, but for the price a parking spot on property should be included.
Greg O.Dec 2021
Very comfortable and quaint.
Loved the room
Theresa J.Sep 2021
We loved the location, the romantic feel of the room and the privacy. The decor was beautifully done. Exceptional copper tub and beautiful bed.Vacasa’s instructions were easy to follow also.
RYAN D.Jul 2021
We really enjoyed our stay but it was very noisy. It was great to be right in town and walk to everything. The street noise and a loud band kept us awake at night and then construction woke us up early everyday even on Saturday. Other than that the accommodation was perfect and we loved our stay. We appreciated the snacks and waters provided to us as well.
Hello Ryan, we're glad to hear that the home suited your needs. The convenient location does also bring some added noise, and we apologize for any disruption this caused during your visit. We look forward to hosting your future vacations!
Diane E.Jun 2021
Room was just like the pictures
Bret R.Jun 2021
We had our 34th anniversary there over the weekend. What a nice time we had. The property is beautiful, quaint and clean and real convenient to everything in Fredericksburg. We simply loved it and thank you for the historic charm that made our time special.
Kathleen C.May 2021
location allowed us to walk to most places of interest during our short stay
Melanie C.Apr 2021
We spent a ‘Get Away’ weekend at Eden’s Gate for our 1st Anniversary. The room was clean and comfortable. The patio was welcoming and relaxing. We enjoyed the HUGE copper bathtub in the evening! It was WONDERFUL! During the day we were in the midst of all the happenings on Main Street with live music, restaurants and local stores. I highly recommend this as a GREAT place to stay in Fredericksburg!
Katie Q.Feb 2021
We loved this comfy cozy get away. We felt safe and secluded but were steps away from some of our favorite spots on the Main Street. That tub is now on my must have list.
Randall M.Feb 2021
Great location with some great amenities. Loved the bathroom shower but not the low door and toilet. Pretty dark in the room unless you open the drapes and walking to the back entrance needs better lighting.
Julie D.Jan 2021
The location was great! Perfect for a couples weekend get away.
Robert N.Dec 2020
Just as advertised - great small space right off of Main Street. Private and cozy - the copper bathtub was fantastic!
Justin M.Nov 2020
The cleanliness, location and decor of Eden’s Gate was second to none! We absolutely loved everything about it, and we can’t wait to come back to Fredericksburg and stay at Eden’s Gate again!
Amy P.Nov 2020
Such a great location! And they did a great job with waters, juice, popcorn etc. it was a pleasant surprise and we can’t wait to stay there again.
DeCole C.Aug 2020
We loved it all! Great location! It was quiet for our midweek stay!
Mark S.Jul 2020
Cozy and comfy. Room is right on the strip near eveything. We were expecting a cabin, but the room is actually on the 2nd floor above a candy shop. Even better..
Susan H.May 2020
My Husband and I were celebrating our 9th Anniversary. We loved that we could park the car and walk to our destinations. My Husband is a Western Buff, so the “period” decor was a big hit. The only negative, my Husband is 6’2” and had to duck when heading into the bathroom.😊 Would definitely stay here again....classy and comfortable.
Richard K.Feb 2020
Very nice room. Second time we have come back to this room.
Alison W.Dec 2019
What a wonderful little find this place is. It's on Main Street and close to all of the shops and restaurants. The details of the architecture are unique as well. I highly recommend and would be back again for sure!
Joshua S.Dec 2019
Very romantic spot in the heart of downtown Fredricksburg. Has all of the amenities one needs for a day or a week. Very impressed with the level of service and the convenience to everything. We will be returning for sure. Thanks so much!!!
Gayle B.Jun 2019
The room was amazing!! The tub was to die for!
Kirstin G.May 2019
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary weekend at Eden’s Gate. We absolutely loved it! Great location and exactly like pictured on website! Will definitely visit again!
Teresa G.Apr 2019
We loved the room! It was romantic, clean, cozy, private and just as described. We will definitely be back!
Gail M.Feb 2019
Eden's Gate was perfect! From games and dvds to snacks and breakfast items, no convenience was left unaccounted for. (There was even a flashlight "just in case"!) The room was beautiful and very comfortable. Great weekend!
Mark K.Oct 2018
My wife and I loved out time at Eden's Gate. We found it easy to relax in the beautifully restored room and the hidden garden out back while still being within walking distance to all of Fredericksburg's downtown. It's definitely at the top of our picks for future anniversary getaways in the central Texas area.
Patricia S.Aug 2018
Loved the decor and the proximity to everything on Main Street.
Charlie T.Jul 2018
Location! Woke up late and had a great breakfast close to Edens Gate. Followed the wife around for a few hrs shopping and was then able to duck off for a nap since it’s located right on Main Street. Beautiful place to stay in the heart of Fredericksburg, I highly recommend!
Steve S.Jun 2018
Really nice , clean , quiet , and very private We plan to stay there again
Jacob B.May 2018
Loved the room, wish we could have stayed longer.
Tiffani J.May 2018
Being right above one of the shops on Main St is already fantastic, but add this beautifully decorated room with an amazing bath tub, AND delicious snacks/treats, and this spot just can't be beat. It's a little pricey, but we splurged for our anniversary. We had a fabulous time and wished we could have stayed longer!
Mitchell S.Apr 2018
The room is truly beautiful. Great location central to Main Street businesses and the museums.
Tanisha G.Apr 2018
The ladies in the office when we checked in were nice and helpful. We had our own parking space right next to our room. The room was upstairs and the view was beautiful. It was a couple minute walk to Main Street. &The room was beautiful!
Megan J.Apr 2018
The place is beautifully appointed and the breakfast treat is lovely!
Jamie P.Mar 2018
Very nice room!!! Great Location
Lisa B.Feb 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eden's Gate. The property is breathtakingly beautiful, and the freestanding copper tub was one of the items we enjoyed most about the room. From the luxurious linens and drapery to the stocked mini fridge, Eden's Gate makes you feel right at home. I highly recommend this property to any couple looking for a romantic getaway within walking distance of the best restaurants and shops in Fredericksburg!
Amy A.Feb 2018
I hesitate a bit to write this review because we don't want this little "secret" getting out, but it is too good to not gush over. We absolutely LOVED this room. We travel quite a bit and have stayed in every kind of accommodation you can imagine and agreed that this one is hands down our favorite! The bathtub is amazing, and though it is in the main room, it's not out of place... It's like a work of art. The kitchenette was well stocked and the bed was super comfortable.
We Highly recommend this room and Vacasa as a whole... The staff went above and beyond at every turn. Not only did they gracefully rescue us the night we locked ourselves our out, bet we really enjoyed the handwritten notes in our welcome packet as well.
We Will Be Back!!!
David G.Dec 2017
4th Time staying her. What does that say about our opinion of the room and people.
Makala P.Nov 2017
If you want to walk to Treaty House and do plenty of shopping on main, this is the spot. Glorious decor, big copper tub and comfy bed. Loved it!
Kimberlynn R.Oct 2017
My best friend and I took a girls trip to Fredericksburg for the weekend, and couldn't have booked a better place to stay! We toured the wineries just outside of town on our first day there and were not able to check in during office hours but the late check in option provided was incredibly simple, and allowed for stress-free planning. This space is located in the heart of downtown, making for a short walk to the shops and restaurants. The room was charming down to the last detail, and spotless! Plenty of towels, shampoo, conditioner and blankets were provided. We both thoroughly enjoyed having the pastry, coffee and cereal for breakfast before getting on the road to head home and the check out process was just as seamless as the check-in! There is not a single thing I would change about our experience at Eden's Garden. Thank you for helping make our girls weekend getaway, a special one!
Claudia C.Jul 2017
Lizza at the main office was great to talk to about happenings around Fredricksburg. She was very nice and even gave me her cell number incase we happened to lock ourselves out of the room.
The inside of Eden's Gate is beautiful!
The outside, well there were a few issues. The candy store is located downstairs so they stacked their trash into carts to carry it to the garbage. But it wasn't taken to the trash immediately. On more than one occasion when we were returning to the room the trash was still there. It was gone however when we returned in the evening from dinner. There were also dozens of dead bees in the window of the candy store window that was going up the stairs to Eden's Gate. There was dirt and bits of something, maybe food,on the floor of Eden's Gate which made walking barefood impossible because it ended up on the bottom of your feet. We also saw many roaches outside and unfortunately a few inside too. That really ruined our stay at Eden's Gate. I hope that they take care of whatever issue or issues that are causing the roach problem because the property is gorgeous on the inside. I don't know if we will return, especially after paying 300+ and having these issues. But it is a great location!
We apologize for the amount of bugs this guest encountered. The candy store and the home have been serviced by pest control. The home has also received a deep clean since this reservation. Thank you!

Perfect location. Beautifully furnished. Great choice for a romantic getaway.

Gena M.Apr 2017
Eden's Gate was wonderful! Great location on Main St. close to the shops and restaurants. The decor of the room is very vintage and cool and the breakfast goodies were wonderful.
Janet F.Mar 2017
Loved Eden's Gate with just one caveat. It is a lovely place but please, please replace the shower! That is the only negative thing I have to say about it. The little kitchenette and dishes are so pretty and fun, the bed was comfy...loved it all for a short stay. The bathroom is quite small, but we managed. Can't beat the location and romantic ambience.
Tommy P.Feb 2017
Nice location! Like stepping back in time! Very romantic...
Dillon V.Dec 2016
We enjoyed our stay. I would suggest if you stay on a night where a band is playing across the street you either stay out late or bring ear plugs. We were so tired from being out all day that we fell asleep in spite of the band. Great location.
Justin R.Nov 2016
Great location and place to stay.
Jennifer B.Nov 2016
This unit provides exactly the experience a couple vacationing in Fredricksburg is looking for! It is so cozy and has so much detail and charm to explore that you hardly want to leave it! The location could not be more perfect - on Main Street - in the heart of shopping and eating and music spots. I would warn that the tub is more suitable for ambiance than function - its enormous and beautiful but the current hot water heater simply cannot accommodate a hot bath in it. On a positive note, the large walk-in shower did not lose heat and had a good shower head, the bedding was spectacular, and the cake provided was delectable. I would recommend adding a way to brew coffee - there is a Keurig in the adorable kitchen cupboard, but there were no pods or coffee to brew. We did use the microwave to heat up water and enjoyed the provided chamomile tea with cake :). Lastly, it was a little off putting that the only late checkout option requires a monetary fee. There was no one checking in the day we left, and it would have been appreciated to have an extra hour complimentary, as would be standard in a hotel of this price point. Overall, Eden's Gate provides a memorable experience that adds so much to the old world charm of Fredricksburg. We will be back for sure!
Heather M.Oct 2016
Hands down, the most breathtaking property for two in Fredericksburg. The attention to detail was astounding. I felt like a princess and it was incredibly romantic. The location could not be better because you are right on Main St in the heart of it all! The room was super clean and the bed was very comfy. I would absolutely recommend Eden's Gate to anyone looking for a romantic getaway!
Jay H.Oct 2016
Eden's gate, was the perfect place to stay, location was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful!!
Frank F.Oct 2016
This is a great location and excellent value. Would be a full 5 stars if I had found the bed more comfortable. To be fair, I am not a good sleeper and am therefore very particular. You can't go wrong with this place.
Janet W.Sep 2016
My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Edens Gate and it was absolutely perfect! It was romantic, super inviting, clean and in town. The copper tub is hands down the best! Can't wait to go back! :)
Michelle W.Sep 2016
Great Fredericksburg getaway at Eden's Gate with my husband. We enjoyed the winery's, resturants and relaxation. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone for its perfect location, and adorable atmosphere.
Brittni J.Sep 2016
This place is a must if you're looking to stroll the town, dine and shop within walking distance of your room, or have a central location to the wineries and Enchanted Rock. The room is breathtaking with the stone walls, Victorian appeal, copper tub (don't worry guys, there is a shower too), and beautiful wood. It's a private property right on Main Street and even has a back porch to enjoy coffee or mimosas (grab some bubbles to enjoy with the OJ) in the morning. I had a lovely experience here and would certainly return.
Solon P.Sep 2016
Property was very nice and classic. It was interesting to learn about the history of the builder and the people who bought it afterwards. This is the first time I stayed in a house built around 1867 and thought it was very charming. Also, there are tons of activities in the area and this place is conveniently close to a lot of the downtown places. The only suggestion is to update entertainment system to make it less complicated and add streaming capability (sorry if this sounds conflicting with the historical side of the building but I thought it was important to meet history and technology right in the middle). Also, check the copper bathtub water temperature as we could not get warm water to fill more than a quarter of the tub as it turned cold and we ended up not bathing on it. It maybe because this is the way it works so we apologize in advance if this is the case.
Christina C.Sep 2016
Perfect location!! Copper tub was amazing!!! Cute candy store below with delicious fudge:) all the restaurants and shops right there at your convenience. Beautifully decorated! Couldn't ask for an easier walk to the wine tour shuttle to go to the wineries .
Rodney A.Sep 2016
This lovely, quaint B&B is like time traveling back in time, but with the luxury and conveniences of today. If you never leave the property, you will experience a wonderful slice of heaven! We desperately want to visit again, but for a longer stay!
Veronica L.Sep 2016
Eden's Gate is perfect!
Kelli / Rob P.Aug 2016
We had such a great time ! We will be back !

The haven is strategically located for all going on in the heart of town--yet it is comfortable and quiet. The coffee cake was delectable.
Joshua D.Aug 2016
Great place will be back
