Downtown garden cottage w/antique decor & private courtyard!

Plan a couples retreat in this stunning Fredericksburg cottage, which offers elegant antique furnishings (including a claw-foot tub) and an immaculate back yard for your next getaway in Texas Hill Country! Whether you've come for the vineyards or antique stores, this breathtaking home is the perfect hideaway. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.

The Fredericksburg chalet is just two blocks from Main Street and Fredericksburg’s Historic District, which offers charming antique stores, historic sites, and tasting rooms from the famous Texas Hills vineyards! Amazing international fare is within walking distance, as are cultural sites like the Vereins Kirche Museum and National Museum of the Pacific War.

The Sunday Haus property was originally built in 1847, and the gorgeous Eva's Guest Haus was later added to accommodate more lucky guests! Inside, the home is a quintessential garden cottage made intimate by antique furnishings and ornate area rugs. Large windows and French doors usher in great natural lighting and provide lush views of the gardens outside.

The cobblestone courtyard is blanketed by trees and greenery, creating a calming space to enjoy the special bottle of wine you selected in the vineyards. The full kitchen features the essentials including a refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven to fuel your courtyard picnics, happy hours, or suppers.

If you've planned a formal meal, gather around the rustic wood table just off the living room to break bread with loved ones. The parlor is a cozy space to unwind after dinner and discuss the day’s adventures or simply watch a movie on cable. WiFi is also provided for your convenience.

Eva’s Guest Haus offers two bedrooms and two baths to accommodate four guests. Each bedroom provides a fourposter queen-size bed and luxurious quilted linens that exude romance and relaxation. The bathrooms are equally calming, offering a walk-in shower and antique claw-foot tub that add an air of luxury to your daily routine!

Beyond your lovely garden cottage you can learn about the region’s rich history at the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site and Pioneer Museum Complex, or watch a live performance at the Rockbox Theater. Active groups will love hiking or mountain biking the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, or exploring Old Tunnel State Park.

When it’s time to recharge, you have your choice of American, German, Italian, or Tex-Mex fare! Enjoy a casual meal in the beer garden at Auslander Restaurant, or indulge in surf and turf at the swanky August E’s. When you’re ready for dessert, visit the charming Lone Star Candy Shop or Old German Bakery.

This beautiful Texas vacation rental offers it all – elegance, privacy, and proximity to the very best Fredericksburg restaurants, tasting rooms, and attractions!

Super cute. Nicely appointed house. Perfect for our quick trip to Fredericksburg. Would enjoy staying there longer.
Connie H. Jun 2022
When arrived. Trash from previous guests was still there. The toilet in bathroom with all the mirrors was not flushing properly. Tried to get TV in gathering room to work call your customer service they had no clue. The remote to tv in small bedroom the batteries had exploded in remote. The sky light in bedroom was right over bed like spotlight of morning. But what aggravated I and my girlfriends the first 2 and 1/2 days only the key fob worked. Finally eve before we to leave. New key fob and cards. We call all the complaints about the trash and toilet not flushing right. First night on wednesdsy. Ok they will get tgst seen about. Never. We call in about the trash of previous guests still there smelling bad we told ok get tgst seen about just like the toilet. Fir Whst we paid a day fir this is terrible. I have stayed in several houses or cottages. Many cost this but never the problems like this and. Ever corrected. Oh one more thing. We noticed the last eve there the cable box on outside of house is not there all these wires just on outside house by foundation. I’m applaud my friends had to deal with this. I’ll never stay in another house or cottage that is ran or operated by this company

Christianna W. May 2022
Such a charming and serene house, and so close to Main Street. You would have no idea you are so close to downtown on this quiet little street. It's a short walk to everything. Comfortable and elegant. Great for a couple or foursome with 2 bedrooms, each with a private bath. Full service gally kitchen and comfortable, well-appointed den/sitting room.
Thomas L. Apr 2022
Beds were comfortable but high. Bathroom was spacious.

Good location and we liked sitting outside.
Brandi B. Mar 2022
This house is absolutely amazing. We loved it. It is a very short 2 block walk to main street. Perfect location!
Beth S. Feb 2022
Added amenities were a very nice touch. Bedding and mattresses also were good. Where it lacked was the plumbing—one had to hope the contents would go down. (We in fact had to call once to say it in fact it did not!).
Diana F. Jan 2022
We were able to book the house last minute and for only one night. Very comfortable and cozy! Perfect location.
Vicky V. Dec 2021
This is more like a guest house or cottage and very cute. Perfect size for two couples or one couple and 2 children. Very nicely decorated and very clean. The location was 2 blocks off Main St and in the middle of the Main St area. Be sure to check the main things once you get there to make sure working. The water heater is small and we did run out of hot water the first day with 4 showers back to back. But the next day it was fine. The heater in the upstairs bedroom didn’t work but the heater for the rest of the house did work. The microwave didn’t work. The heater and hot water issue was reported to VACASA who was awesome. They immediately sent out local repairmen and determined hot water heater was fine but small. The room thermostats/heater did have a bigger issue and it was a Sunday so they brought us a space heater which worked. We didn’t discover that room heater didn’t work until the super cold weather hit but had we checked it the day we arrived, we could have reported it sooner. None of this deterred us from having a good time and we really enjoyed this little cottage. We would stay here again.
Manager response:
Hi, Vicky! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. The heater has been repaired, and the microwave is replaced. We do hope to see you again!
Jessica S. Dec 2021
Cute historic home and close by Main Street so we could easily walk to all the shops!
Russell L. Nov 2021
We love the the location and the place was perfect for two couples. Would stay again there every chance we get
Margaret P. Oct 2021
This house was perfect for two couples because it has two berooms with private bathe in each. We enjoyed the patio and convenient location close to Main Street.
Chrsity W. Oct 2021
Eva's Guest House is quite comfortable for 2 couples. It is also conveniently located near downtown. My husband and I took the smaller bedroom and bathroom. This bathroom has a claw foot tub with just a curtain surrounding it. There is no place to put soap or shampoos (unless you put them on the floor of the tub - a hazard if you happen to slip on the soap) and if you were to lose your balance there is nothing but the curtain to grab onto. Consequently during our 2 night stay, we each only took 1 shower. We decided it was too hazardous. There was also no exhaust in the bathroom so everything was steamed up after a shower. The other bathroom was much nicer and had a walk-in shower. No complaints from the other couple we were with. The coffee pot didn't work properly. We were able to get it to work after a couple of attempts the first morning however, the second morning, it just wouldn't work. So our husbands had to go out to buy coffee for us all for breakfast. Other than that, we were quite comfortable.
Manager response:
We're delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful time, though we regret that there were some items that prevented you from fully enjoying your vacation experience. We have passed your valuable feedback along to our house manager, so they can correct this for future guests. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to host you for another comfortable stay.
Robin M. Sep 2021
Home was very cute, and convenient to Main Street. Treats left for guests was a welcome touch! Only negative is that the coffee maker does not work. Gave up after 30 minutes (and noted that it didn't work in a prior review). Please buy a new one for your coffee lovin' guests! <3
Manager response:
We apologize we missed replacing the coffeemaker prior to your stay and have since purchased a new one. Thank you, Robin!
Jessica M. Jul 2021
This was a perfect house for our stay in Fredericksburg. I was determined to find a cute bed and breakfast, but they were all sold out for the holiday weekend. This was the perfect compromise because it had that antique, b&b feel. It was just two blocks from Main Street, so we barely had to drive anywhere except for the wineries, which were only 10-20 minutes away. My only complaint is that the guestroom we stayed in had a sunlight window on the ceiling so it was impossible to sleep in. There should be a way to cover it up.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Jessica. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time in this house. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement. We always appreciate feedback on how to make our guests stay more comfortable and will pass your suggestion to our local team for consideration. We hope to host you for another pleasant stay in the future!
Kathy H. Jun 2021
Two queen-size beds, two full baths, charming decor and a great location made this the perfect weekend getaway for the four of us. Coffee maker, coffee, sugar, cream, orange juice, bottled water, quick breakfast items got our mornings off to a great start.
Katherine J. Jun 2021
Loved the house and the location.
Roz D. Apr 2021
We walked to wine tasting, dinner, and shopping. Super convenient. Nice to have breakfast items like coffee, milk, oatmeal and pastries for us. Management was very responsive when we called about a noisy neighbor. Beds were very comfortable too. Would stay again!
GAIL P. Apr 2021
It is adorable. Great location. Charming little home. It's perfect for a couple, or 2 couples. This is my second time renting it. I will say the back yard needs grass and a dead tree removed to make it more enjoyable to sit outside.
MARY S. Mar 2021
There were no hangers. The internet did not work. We had to waste two hours with the VACASA person fixing the internet while we missed our dinner reservation. The garbage disposal did not work. No hair dryer in my bathroom, ran out of hot water. No working tv service.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Mary. We are disappointed to hear that we were unable to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing vacation experience. We appreciate you reaching out to us right away about these issues, and for allowing the local staff the opportunity to assist in a resolution. Each of your concerns has since been remedied by the local staff. While the refund you were given does not negate the experience you had, we hope this gesture is indicative of our efforts to make things right. We hope you will allow us a second chance to better serve you in the future!
carthy f. Mar 2021
This house was the perfect getaway and located in a prime location - just a block or two off main so it was quiet and within walking distance to everything. The house was spotless and we will be back!
Gail P. Jan 2021
This was a wonderful place. Just the right size for 2 couples. The people who compalined about no heat obviously were unable to see the thrermostates on the walls. And the parking is fine. There is room for one car int he driveway and there is plenty of street parking, The streets are very wide so no issues there. The pastries, water, and muffins were an added surprise. I loved it.
Kelli T. Jan 2021
Great stay with friends!
Judy L. Oct 2020
Loved this precious cottage. Great location and very quiet. We were with our best friends and had a great time. Only complaint was we couldn't sit in cute backyard due to mosquitoes. Maybe should fog yard and leave citronella candles.
Tami H. Sep 2020
We loved the cottage. Leaving the coffee and creamer with muffins. We sat out and had some wine in the lovely backyard. I did call Lissa for a handyman to come later to fix shower handle, wall towel holder and toilet paper holder. But this simply needs did not keep us from enjoying the place. I would recommend to 2 couples or 2-4 ladies.
Cyndie E. Jul 2020
Cute cottage. Nice bedrooms. Very close to town.
Anthony R. Jul 2020
Quaint on the outside and an impeccable gem on the inside. This two bedroom B&B allows you to strike up some good conversations with friends or family or kick back and just have a good bottle of wine without any tech or current event distractions!
George T. Jun 2020
House was perfect for us. Location and ease of getting to the areas in Fredericksburg was perfect.
JAMIE W. Jun 2020
Eva's Guest House was perfect. Beautiful timely home, clean and comfortable. Perfect location. Very easy to find and access. We will book again for our next trip.
Jacelyn B. Jun 2020
The house and yard are beautiful. Everything was clean and in pristine condition. The backyard is nice, after a day of winery tours, we sat out back and played cards. We will be back!

Manager response:
Shannon, thank you for your feedback. We have passed along your comments regarding the TLC needed around the home to our local manager. They will have our maintenance staff address these issues as soon as possible. Thank you!
Absolutely loved staying here! We were withing walking distance to pretty much everything!! Comfortable stay for everyone! (bed in the front room was very noisy when rolling around tho)---- beds very comfy, lots of natural light, bathrooms large and nice. Had a wonderful stay here and would love to stay again.
Mike W. Jan 2020
This house was perfect for our weekend stay. It’s close to all the downtown festivities. The house was clean and neat. We’d plan on staying there again.
Aimee O. Dec 2019
The cottage is adorable, cozy and perfectly decorated. The beds are so comfortable and I felt like I was at home. The location could not be beat. We walked to Main Street and were only a quick drive to other restaurants and wine bars. I went with my mother and sister and we had a great time. I would definitely stay here again.
Susan H. Dec 2019
This house is in a perfect location. You can walk everywhere from the Musuem to the shops!
Very comfortable great for two couples.
Doroteo G. Nov 2019
Cozy home. Just the necessary space and amenities for a gory weekend stay for two couples. Mattress could use some love but they worked. It was a pleasure staying at Eva’s guest house.

Yes I would book again.
Rebecca P. Nov 2019
Upon arrival, lockbox key was readily available. We into a charming setting with just the right size for two single ladies. We ere locked out of our cottage because both of us left the keys inside the cottage and someone came to open the door within minutes.
Michelle P. Nov 2019
Beautiful home - walking distance to Main St, and has daily maid service. Will definitely stay again! Loved it!
Debra K. Aug 2019
My daughter and I took a 24 hour shopping getaway to Fredericksburg. We found Eva's Guest House online and I can honestly say that it was the most welcoming, well-appointed, beautifully decorated and coziest B and B I have ever stayed in!!! Two blocks off of main street, we could walk everywhere and head back for a relaxing time on the back patio or in the lovely living area. Two separate bedroom suites with 4-poster beds and beautiful bathrooms makes this house perfect for both togetherness and privacy. Can't wait to head back with my best friend soon!!
Karli V. Aug 2019
I loved our experience at Eva’s! Very clean, beautiful decor. Woohoo absolutely recommend!!
Beckie H. Jun 2019
The decor was fabulous.
Hugh S. May 2019
Beautiful accommodations and a short walk to shops and restaurants.
Jennifer M. Apr 2019
The house was very cute and very clean. Just two blocks from main street was super convenient. They provided breakfast which was a very nice bonus.
Christina G. Mar 2019
Old Town charm, very clean and quiet, would stay again
Arjun S. Mar 2019
Perfect for family with 2 kids or 2 couples wanting to walk to the sights, restaurants and shops in town. Very clean and well furnished home with nice touches and most amenities. Daily maid service. We ate out everyday and didn’t take advantage of the self-serve, basic breakfast stocked daily. This home belonged to the first German immigrants who came over to Fredericksburg back in the mid 1800s. Lot of history.
Tom C. Mar 2019
This house is lovely and well-equipped. We were two couples and stayed in the back part of the house. It had two queen bedrooms, each with a bath. But the beds were so high that we had to use stools to get in them. One bed squeaks everytime you move in it. The breakfast provisions they left were very nice and adequate. Everything was clean and cozy. We weren’t there to watch TV but the TVs were tiny.
Geoffrey K. Dec 2018
The house was very nice and well kept. It's within walking distance of downtown and even some outlying restaurants, although the weather was not cooperating while we were there. It was great to have daily maid service (surprise) and breakfast rolls dropped off. The one thing I would change would be to add some clothes storage (or clear a self or two under the TV) in the upper bedroom. The space is tight and with all the nik-nacs there just wasn't any place to put our suitcases, clothes, etc. Overall, we'd enjoyed it and would stay here again.
Alyssa P. Nov 2018
Norhing else needs to be said. You will love it.
Jennifer C. Oct 2018
Had a great time with our stay at Eva's Guest House! It was perfect for a quick getaway!
Rhonda V. Sep 2018
This home is perfect for walking to and from everything in the downtown area. We loved the house, how beautifully decorated it was and the bedding for both of the beds were extremely comfortable!

Thank you so much for the danish, we really enjoyed it each morning.

If I had any suggestion for this home, it would be to have drinking glasses. All glassware was wine glasses. Please add 6-8 water or tea glasses that or anywhere from 8-10ozs.
Would absolutely stay here again.
Charles M. Jul 2018
Beautiful and close to town-perfect
Leland B. Jul 2018
The home was even nicer than the pics led us to expect. Beautifully decorated and appointed with all the right touches and conveniences. Great location just a couple blocks to the downtown shops and restaurants. The management team thought of all the little things to ensure a perfectly pleasant stay. We’re pretty picky so our recommendations are sometimes reserved, but this one was a jewel!
Becky F. Jun 2018
The house was awesome for the weekend. We rented it to attend the Fredericksburg Trade Day weekend. We were a very short drive to the trade days and wineries. We were able to walk to Main Street from the house without the hassle of parking. The house was stocked with coffee, water and juice which was all we needed since we took advantage of the awesome restaurants on Main St. We would definitely rent this house again. The ladies at Vacasa were pleasant and accommodating.
Stephanie S. May 2018
Very comfortable. Close to everything. Classy Ralph Lauren look and feel. Loved having a private driveway to park in.
Michael S. Apr 2018
House is perfect for 2 couples. Bedrooms are far enough away from each other not to disturb each other, but there's a good common area and back porch to drink some wine and socialize. Great location near main street, just a short two block walk to all the shops and restaurants in Fredericksburg, but far enough away to be nice and quiet for a relaxing stay.
Margaret W. Feb 2018
Beautiful cottage, excellent location. First class accommodations.
Tara S. Jan 2018
Amazing location.. walking distance to all you need in Fredericksburg. The cottage is very clean and nice furnishings. If it matters to you.. you should know the beds are queens and the TV in living room is tiny... no bigger than 18".
Mark M. Dec 2017
Very nice weekend
Tina P. Oct 2017
My sisters and I had a wonderful weekend at Eva's Cottage. The beds and linens were so comfortable. Just make sure you don't lock yourself out of the house while unloading your car!!!
Traci S. Oct 2017
Eva’s Guest House is nicely appointed and close to town. It makes for a lovely girls’ weekend!
Jessica M. Oct 2017
Eva's guest house was an adorable place to stay. It was perfect for two couples and we will book it whenever we return. House keeping does a great job because the house was very clean. Recommend to anyone!!
Carol C. Sep 2017
Eva's Guest Haus is a cozy B&B with all the amenities you need. I love the separate bedrooms, each with on suite bathrooms. The furnishings are very nice and the beds are luxurious!
Debra M. Sep 2017
Upon arrival the look, feel and aroma took me back to summers at Gradmas house yet the modern upgrades to the lights, kitchen and one bathroom were much appreciated. We totally enjoyed our stay, plan to return and plan to tell others about the place. The breakfast cake was absolutely tasty. Thanks for helping to make our restful get-a-way weekend just that - restful!
Susan R. Jun 2017
Eva's was perfect for two couples. We could hang out together in the living area but also had plenty of privacy in our bedrooms. We loved the décor as well.
Kate C. May 2017
I don't want to give this a good review, because I always want to book this adorable home! Blocks from Main and beautifully furnished, I love this home.
I would book it over and over again!
Karen F. Apr 2017
We throughly enjoyed our stay at Eva's Guest House. Plenty of room for two couples. We loved having the coffee cakes for breakfast and all of the fixings for coffee.
Helen S. Apr 2017
We stayed at Eva's Haus with Friends who had never been to Fredericksburg. They are world travelers and busy executives, but they were blown away by Eva's Haus! It provided the comfort and convenience that mad our stay in Fredericksburg a delight! As we drove back to Austin they were both saying - I wish we had another day!!
Kelly S. Mar 2017
Eva's guest house is adorable and very comfortable. I would happily stay here again.
Erika M. Mar 2017
Cute cozy cottage that would be great for two couples' get away. Within seconds of Main street. Highly recommend!
Julie C. Feb 2017
Eva's Guest Haus was superb! The house is perfectly appointed, and has a great set up for 2 couples. The furnishings were luxurious yet comfortable. We enjoyed the secluded backyard, & the coffee provided was perfect for mornings before heading out to enjoy the wineries/shopping.
Darin R. Feb 2017
Great location and classy. Perfect for a group of 4. Be sure to check out the live music. We didn't think we would but it was awesome. At checkin they handed us a live music sheet we checked in then brought up each artist on YouTube to get a flavor for their music. It was great. Avoid hilltop cafe. HIGHLY overrated and way over priced
Andrew E. Jan 2017
We were very happy withe the beds and furnishings. A full kitchen helped to have food available when we needed it. Very nicely furnished with comfortable living area.
Stephanie M. Dec 2016
Loved the location and accommodations, would absolutely use this place again!

Margaret W. Aug 2016
Wonderful place to stay. Felt like home!
Lois R. Aug 2016
Our stay @Eva’s Guess house was a gift from our son’s for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We invited my sister & her husband to join us. I cannot tell you how excited we all were once we opened the front door to Eva’s house. This property is incredible!
From the moment we step foot inside was like we were home…….not like walking into a hotel room. Waiting for us was fresh baked pastry, ice cold milk & orange juice…..each morning!
The backyard is so private! We would sit on the patio each morning to have our breakfast & evening to share some wine.
If you have the chance to visit Fredericksburg make Eva’s Guess House your home away! You will not want to leave!
Anna & Rick . Aug 2016
Very pleased with the service and accommodations. Recommend making reservations in advance instead of chancing the availability in the future.
Joanna T. Jul 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at Eva's cottage. Perfect getaway for 4. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Great location!
Charles L. Jul 2016
We enjoyed our stay there very much! Convenient location & the cottage was lovely!

We had such a wonderful stay in Fredericksburg!
Danielle M. May 2016
Cute cottage. Perfect for a girls weekend.
Leslie L. Apr 2016
Beautiful, cozy home. No dinette table though to play games on.
Jessica H. Apr 2016
Brought my mom and two sisters for a weekend getaway! We really enjoyed the cottage and the feeling of "coming home." The house was fully furnished and stocked perfectly like a sweet cottage with your own driveway and even backyard! We enjoyed our close commute to town!
Yazmin P. Apr 2016
Renting was so easy. The communication via email and instructions were so easy. I have already referred them to my friends. The house looks just like the pictures. We were very please with the entire experience!
