Elegant cottage w/ a private deck, steps from tasting rooms!

You'll be within walking distance of the Texas Hill Country's most beloved vineyards and tasting rooms when you stay at this one-bedroom Fredericksburg cottage, a charming wine lovers' getaway with a private deck and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. A light, unhosted breakfast is included in your stay.

This bright and airy cottage, about 10 miles away from the heart of Fredericksburg, is part of Messina Hof Hill Country, a cluster of four private rentals just steps from the renowned Messina Hof tasting room. These elegant suites can either be rented individually by couples and solo travelers, or all together by large groups of friends and family.

You'll find several of the region's most celebrated winemakers less than half a mile away, while the restaurants, shops, and historic sites of downtown Fredericksburg are only 10 miles west.

With lofty ceilings, classic furnishings, and central heat and air conditioning, the living area is bright, spacious, and comfortable. After a day of hiking and climbing in the wondrous Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, return home to relax in front of the flatscreen cable TV or use the WiFi to plan the next day's adventures.

Wake up each morning to freshly brewed coffee on the wet bar, which also features a sink, a microwave, and small refrigerator for storing your souvenir bottles. There is no kitchen in this cottage, but breakfast is provided and you'll enjoy fantastic meals out at the Sunset Grill and Vaudeville in downtown Fredericksburg.

And as the sun begins to set each evening, step outside on your private back deck to enjoy a bottle of local wine and gorgeous views of the Texas Hill Country.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage can accommodate as many as four guests. The bedroom features two queen-size sleigh beds, while the full bathroom is equipped with a walk-in shower.

Whether you're a wine enthusiast or a history lover, you'll find endless opportunities for entertainment in and around Fredericksburg. When you're not sampling Messina Hof's superb wines just a few feet away, you'll find a number of other excellent local wineries within a short walk or drive.

You'll also be just nine miles from Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site, where you can fish, swim, picnic, and catch a glimpse of part of the official Texas state longhorn herd.

The refreshments in the room was nice. Water bottles would have been a plus! I'll remember to bring them next time. the living room area could use a TV and coffee table, but otherwise very cozy and good for what we needed it for. Sleep and reset!
Kathy W. May 2022
We spent 2 days on the Messina Hof property to celebrate a friend's 65th birthday. We couldn't have had a better time! My husband and I stayed at Paris Cottage, and my friend and her husband staged at Hof Haus.

Both properties were perfect. Cute furnishings with everything we needed. Plenty of snacks and delicious scones provided!
We spent each evening on the back patio with a bottle of wine (it is Fredericksburg after all!). Housekeeping was perfect, and furnishings were comfortable. Representatives from both Vacasa and Messina Hof were very helpful.

We can't wait to come back!
Megan B. Mar 2022
This place was very quiet, secluded, and clean. Vacasa did a great job communicating about all of the check in/out procedures. The place was very well stocked with drinks and snacks. I would recommend this place and look forward to returning!
Michele W. Feb 2022
This sweet Paris cabin had everything we needed, including champagne and orange juice for mimosas. The cabin was super clean and bigger than many cabins. It had a nice view of the winery in the front and the countryside in the back. Only thing I would change is the bed mattress-too hard for my taste, but I am sure some would love that.
Rebecca G. Dec 2021
Loved everything about this place! The Paris cottage was beautifully decorated, and the amenities the owner provided was awesome, from the fresh continental breakfast snacks and bottle of Brut in the refridge waiting for us to begin the birthday celebration! Well done!
Emily R. Jul 2021
Brought my sister here for the weekend as her bachelorette party and we both loved it!! The location is convenient for just walking to the tasting room and driving out to downtown. The Paris cottage was clean and the complimentary mimosa and breakfast choices were very appreciated. Instructions for check in and check out were easy to follow and overall the weekend was peaceful... would stay again for sure!!
Christian Ralls E. Jul 2021
Spacious and clean. Very comfortable
Deborah M. May 2021
Very quaint and cute little cottage. Very clean,
MICHELLE D. May 2021
Such a perfect little villa in the heart of the countryside just out of town. We loved being just a couple miles away from beautiful vineyards!! The Paris cottage was cozy, CLEAN and stocked with everything we needed for our couple day stay!
Jason T. Apr 2021
Dish Network went out and I wasn’t sure if the snacks and mimosa set ups were included in the rate or were an extra charge.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jason. We apologize for Dish Network going out of service during your stay. This has since been resolved. To clarify, the snacks and mimosa supplies are complimentary. Thank you for staying with us!
Audrey S. Apr 2021
My two friends and I had a nice, relaxing wine tasting at Messina Hof. We loved the wine and bought a few bottles. Then we checked in at the Paris Cottage. It was an easy check in, spacious and had everything we needed! We sat out back enjoying a little more wine and watched the deer. Then we drove into town for dinner. This location is perfect for visiting wineries, breweries, the Wild Seed Farm and for going into town. I would definitely stay here again!
Rami N. Oct 2020
The cabin was perfect for the 2 of us. We were able to enjoy a quiet weekend in the woods, tasting wine & relaxing. The cabin is has everything you need, and instructions to checkin & out were simple & contactless. We'll come back!
Erika H. Oct 2020
Loved the cottage! it is super cute and has all of the essentials! I loved that it was walking distance to messina hof winery :) It was cozy and just what we were looking for! We will definitely be back! The only complaint I had was that the mattress was not the most comfortable but I know this is a very subjective critique as everyone's mattress preferences are different.
Ricardo B. Aug 2020
I liked the cleanliness, the comfort, location, and the check-in process.
Crystal H. Aug 2020
Booked this little cottage last minute with a girlfriend for my birthday, and it didn't disappoint. My only complaint is that I only got to stay one night. I needed so many more. The amenities were lovely. I wish we'd have been able to visit the winery, but COVID took that away from us. And I'm glad to see they're following protocols to keep us all safe. The bottle of bubbles in our mini fridge did the trick though, and we had an amazing time. We'll definitely be back for a longer stay.
Bill C. Mar 2020
This is our 3rd year to enjoy this cottage group.. Always a perfect setting in the Hill Country Wine area. The cottage is always ready to go and in a perfect stop to enjoy the wines in the area and of coarse Messina Hof... Just cant beat it...
Lyndia J. Feb 2020
Very charming, cozy and comfortable.
JAMES B. Dec 2019
Nice beautiful little cabin with all the needed items and very nicely decorated
Crystal G. Dec 2019
It was spacious but not more than we needed. It was a great location for wine lovers. Would stay again!
Anthony T. Dec 2019
We had a really nice stay in this cottage over Thanksgiving. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was great. The wine at Messina Hof is amazing and the tasting was a lot of fun.
Chris S. Nov 2019
great facility, town and trip!
Jaymie T. Nov 2019
Nice accommodations in this private cottage, perfect for a girls trip weekend or getaway.
Sonia H. Oct 2019
Loved everything about our stay, it was super easy!
Morgan S. Sep 2019
This little cottage was perfect for a last minute girls trip. We wanted to be away from the downtown area, and this fit the bill perfectly. It is about a 10 minute drive to the main street, and was easy to go back and forth. We unfortunately didn't even get to go in to the main winery as our trip was so quick, and the timing didn't work out, but I think it would have made for a great evening instead of going in to town. I will be returning with my husband soon!
Paula F. Aug 2019
We were very pleased with this cottage. It was clean and was well stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely book again!
Molly L. Aug 2019
This was our annual mother-daughter trip and staying at the Paris Cottage at Messina Hof Hill Country made it perfect. The cottage is adorable, comfortable and clean. The breakfast pastry was delicious! The location is perfect for wine tasting yet, not too far from downtown. We had a lovely and wonderful stay.
Joshua F. Jul 2019
The perfect get-away cottage, clean, well air conditioned, and behind the Winery so that it was quiet. Wonderful service at the winery. And maid service cleaned up the room while we were out for the day.
Linda K. Jun 2019
Wonderful cabin great location.
Kay S. Jun 2019
The cottage was decorated beautifully and private. A patio in front & back made a very relaxing place to enjoy our complimentary wine & pastry.
Lynda L. May 2019
Very nice and relaxing
Christopher T. May 2019
This vineyard offers over 50 wine selections with a very knowledgeable staff. It is secluded enough for a quiet atmosphere yet a short drive into town. The cabins are filled with amenities and a luxury country feel. Would definitely recommend this amazing place and will be back again!
Roy S. Apr 2019
My fiancé and I loved this cottage. The interior was well-decorated with nice artwork and beautiful furniture. The bottle of wine and OJ for mamosas was great as well. The breakfast danish was outstanding! And the location was superb being so close to several wineries. Also, the late checkout option was a great addition for us. Overall an outstanding experience.
LINDA P. Apr 2019
Beautiful, cozy, peaceful place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. Definitely recommended.
Nan F. Feb 2019
The place was perfectly kept, very spacious and very generous with food and drink!
TONY K. Feb 2019
The Paris Cottage was beautiful. It was well maintained and was immaculately clean. Would DEFINITELY go back.
Tara J. Dec 2018
We enjoyed the stay and was pleasantly surprised by the views, queen beds, linens, and extras including fresh baked cinnamon rolls. We will be back to visit.
SUZANNE H. Nov 2018
Couldn't have been more happy with our Paris cabin. The pictures don't do it justices. Thank you for the extra tasty treats treats. I travel a lot and this was the perfect places for 4 friends to hang out for the weekend in Fredericksburg. Don't think twice...just book it!
Kimberley T. Nov 2018
It had all of amenities we needed for a relaxing hassle free weekend. My husband threw out some deer corn and had 10 doe eating 20 feet away from our porch the next morning. Loved it!
Sylvia R. Nov 2018
Loved the cottage and amenities, and the grounds. Very peaceful. Check in was 4 pm but would have been helpful if we knew there was a happy hour at 3 pm, so missed it. Also would have been good to know there was no food for purchase, so had to travel into Fredericksburg to get food. But overall, a very nice stay at Messina Hof.
Lee C. Nov 2018
Cozy and centrally located for our favorite winery, Luckenbach and brewery.
Don R. Nov 2018
Romantic, secluded, clean, stocked refrigeration - add beautiful wife - perfect
Ashley B. Oct 2018
My husband and I loved the Paris cottage! It was exceptionally clean and well decorated. Our favorite part was sitting on the patio off the bedroom, and watching deer leap between the trees on the rustic landscape. Perfect adult getaway, however we would bring our children here also!
M Stefany A. Oct 2018
Everything was perfect, the tasting included with the room was so great. The amenities included with the room like food and wine were fantastic.
holly d. Oct 2018
Super cute clean and cozy
David B. Oct 2018
Robert R. Oct 2018
What an Awsome place to enjoy for my wife and me. First Class all the way!!! We loved the decor. The price was very reasonable for it being so close to the shopping strip.
Linda M. Sep 2018
We struggled to find a place to house the three of us when visiting Fredericksburg for a ladies get-away. Most vineyard accomodations focused on couple retreats. This was a match for us, allowing us to room together, have close proximity to vineyards and Fredericksburg, and the comfort of home. The amenities were delightful, and the cleanliness, space and location matched our needs and expectations. The staff at the Messina Hof treated us as true guests not customers. We would recommend the accommodations to others.
Valentin G. Sep 2018
Had the privacy to enjoy our group with nobody looking over our shoulder. You did a great job of staying out of our view.
Cheryl K. Aug 2018
We got this for a Girl's Weekend Getaway and it was awesome! We enjoyed the view from the back porch, the room size and accommodations such as refrigerator, little living room area and breakfast.
Daria S. Aug 2018
The cottage layout was great; enjoyed sitting outside drinking our free bottle of bubbly; coffee cake absolutely delicious; location nice; the grounds were peaceful; enjoyed visiting the winery also. Really liked all the wines, and the price great!
Michael J. Aug 2018
House is quiet and nestled behind the winery in the trees. The coffee provided from a local roaster was fantastic! We only had one night here, but will be back!
Celina T. Jul 2018
Perfect place for an overdue weekend of relaxation. Quaint and romantic and wine!
Definitely visiting again soon!
Paul E. Jul 2018
Clean, nicely decorated and good breakfast items.
Elisa D. Jul 2018
Loved everything about this cabin. It is very charming and very comfortable:)
Pam M. Jul 2018
We loved our stay in the cottage! The grounds were so nice and quiet. The inside was so welcoming. Loved not having to check in at a front desk and having our own private breakfast and snacks was a plus. Will recommend to others and will return again.
Todd M. Jul 2018
Comfy beds, beautiful room, great wine!
Jamiesues F. Jul 2018
We (family of 4) stayed in the Paris Cottage for one night. The cottage was more spacious than a hotel room, nicely decorated, very clean and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
Janet C. Jul 2018
The cottage was very nice. Big rooms, lots of windows to view the woods. Appreciated having food and beverages on hand. Since the drive into town was a little long. Enjoyed the deck to sit and enjoy the woods with views of deer and other wildlife. I would recommend this place to everyone. Will go back again.
Lenny D. Jun 2018
I booked this place for a girls’ trip and had the most wonderful stay. The place is clean and I am very picky with cleanliness. It was stocked with coffe, juice, milk and even toiletries. Very homey feeling especially with their delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Easy check in and check out. Highly recommend.
Reba R. May 2018
Beautiful room great view we saw 3 deer behind our room. We had a nice breeze blowing it was quiet. Great place to stay.
rob s. May 2018
We decided to take a last minute trip and found the mesina hof paris unit. Great 2 room unit and behind a great tasting room. A must do!
David L. May 2018
Charming, clean, convenient, comfy and quiet. Looking forward to a return visit.
Rene K. Apr 2018
Romantic and beautiful place - we loved it!!
We can’t wait to go back! :)
Angel B. Apr 2018
We loved how cozy it was. Also, all the yummy treats that were in fridge and left on counter and table.
Nicholas S. Apr 2018
Definitely enjoyed the interior decoration and the breakfast. Should consider installing a magnification mirror in the bathroom to help with makeup.
Steve C. Apr 2018
Spent Easter weekend and had a relaxing, fun time. Really enjoyed the wine tasting and mimosa's in the morning. Thank you!
Michelle M. Mar 2018
Nice place, very quiet, loved all the hummingbirds in the front, definitely consider staying there again.
Monica B. Mar 2018
Loved the location of the cabin. Just outside downtown Fredericksburg not too far and not too close. Winery throughout the area. Centrally located. Cute cabin. Clean. The only opportunity that would make it five stars was the mattresses. Our backs were killing us the next morning.
Karen H. Mar 2018
Perfect for a few days away to celebrate our anniversary and relax. Will visit again.
Joan B. Mar 2018
I would stay again. Loved the breakfast cake, very fresh. And, very thoughtful to leave milk and juice in the refrigerator, instead of creamer, which no one ever likes! Loved the free wine tastings and the bottle of champagne. It made us feel so welcome that we never wanted to leave - very relaxing.
Dawn G. Feb 2018
Thomas K. Jan 2018
We stayed here on Christmas Eve, through the day after Christmas. the place was very clean. Extremely surprised that the housekeeping staff came out on Christmas day to restock us with anything we might need. it was a very nice quiet location for our family to stay at during the christmas holiday.
Megan M. Jan 2018
We enjoyed our visit at the winery but we didn’t try any wines. We stayed at the cottage at the back of the property. They were nicely decorated and clean. The only thing that was disappointing was they didn’t have binder of information about the winery or complementary wine tasting. I would love to also have information about local restaurants and attractions.
Paul A. Dec 2017
Perfect proximity to most area wineries, just outside of town. Nice, private location.
Ken L. Dec 2017
This is a very convenient place if you want to enjoy Fredericksburg and tour the wineries.
Gerona N. Nov 2017
Wonderful spot on Messina Hof property right off the highway.
Colin S. Nov 2017
Lovely place to stay, the wine tasting was good, and location convenient for surrounding area.
Samuel R. Nov 2017
Very pleasant stay. Felt as if it were my own home.
Brock S. Nov 2017
When we had to change vacation plans unexpectedly, we were pleasantly excited to learn about this wonderful location. Everyone was helpful and courteous. The cottage was a quaint, quiet, and romantic place to get away for our anniversary just as we had hoped for!
Jocelyn D. Oct 2017
Great little cottage, welcome cake and sparkling wine nice surprise and much appreciated! Very peaceful location. Shame it is 10 minute drive from Fredericksburg - taxi's very expensive once you have made the most of the winery!
Ann C. Oct 2017
Very nice! Highly recommend.
CHUN YIN C. Oct 2017
Will return again... the location is good. the wine is good.
Ann M. Oct 2017
Rebecca H. Oct 2017
My best friend and I loved our Paris cottage. It was the perfect location and was very clean and comfy. Very tastefully decorated and good lighting. The bed was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!!
Isabel R. Sep 2017
Eva H. Aug 2017
My husband and I live in Rockport and had no idea that hurricane Harvey was going directly to Rockport. We chose Messina Hof cabins to stay in so we could monitor the storm in a quiet environment .!it was the perfect place to relieve some of the stress. It was close enough to town to go and eat and shop. The lodging was very clean and housekeeping was excellent. Loved the coffee cake they left every day and refrigerator had plenty of beverages for us. Thank you. We will be going back
Clay C. Aug 2017
Messina Hof Vacasa homes was a hidden gem for us. We had our young boys with us, and there was plenty of room for us all. The house was beautiful, and all of the extra amenities were a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed our stay, and we will definitely plan on staying there again.
Jennifer S. Aug 2017
Very nice, beds were super comfortable! We had a great time!
DIANE M. Aug 2017
I rented the Presidential for my husband and myself and the Paris for my mom and her husband. We were so happy with the attention to detail with the fine furnishings to the lovely themes that we are planning a winter return.
Lorraine B. Aug 2017
Love the free champagne and glass of wine. The homemade danish was awesome
Melissa P. Jul 2017
3 of us girls stayed in the Paris cottage. It was amazing and worked so well for us. We even did yoga on the back porch with the country surrounding us. So peaceful.
Sarah S. Jul 2017
The cottage was beautiful and we are looking forward to our next stay.
Denise P. May 2017
Great place to stay if you are looking for a place near other wineries. Well maintained, nice bedding. I will say getting breakfast and meals is challenging after you have been to the winery and you just want to wind down. I would logically encourage all wineries who have cottages in the back to solve the lack of food nearby problem. Invite food trailers to visit or provide to go options maybe.
Katy T. May 2017
I went with 3 girlfriends. It was almost perfect! We loved sitting on the back porch and visiting inside. Our only complaint was the lighting. With a group of females you're going to have hair and makeup issues. The light in the shower was brighter than over the mirror. ????

Otherwise we were completely satisfied
Lindsay B. Apr 2017
Exactly what we wanted, privacy, patio, and a view. Really nice and roomy. Beds were a little firm for our taste but everything else was great. The cinnamon roll coffee cakes were delicious and appreciated they put the custom label wine bottles in the room as requested for our anniversary. Great location among all the wineries so we took our our tour but could use 290 wine tour shuttles too. Thanks for a great anniversary weekend stay!
Lamar S. Apr 2017
It is a very nicely appointed cabin. If you are quiet, the deer come up as close as 25 yards away from the back deck. The champagne and OJ sure helped breakfast go easier. The ample goodies in the fridge and in the snack rack were far more than we needed, so we left what we did not use. Hummingbirds and a rare hummingbird moth frequent the bushes in the front in the early morning, too.
Margaret H. Mar 2017
Delightfully surprised by wine and breakfast in the room
Tara M. Mar 2017
This was the perfect space for our girls' weekend. There were four of us and the size of the cottage was just right. We spent most of our time touring wineries and walking around Main Street, but the cottage is perfect for bringing back a bottle of wine and sipping on the front or back porch. Super clean, very comfortable beds and easy check in and check out. Will definitely stay here again if I go back to Fredericksburg!
Donna G. Mar 2017
It was a wonderful experience in a beautiful setting. We are definitely looking forward to future visits. There is so much to see and do so plan on at least two or three days. Not only are the cottages beautiful, the great wines of Messina Hof are but a step away. Cheers!
Kristin L. Jan 2017
Even though the weather didn't pan out exactly as we wanted, we had a great 3 night stay. We arrived on thursday in time to enjoy a tasting & then head into town for dinner. Fri we enjoyed shopping & a few wineries then went to Hondos for live music. It was such a fun atmosphere with great food!!
Sat was all about wine tastings. We take to 4 places & enjoyed the day, foggy & all. :) can't wait to go again.
Kim D. Dec 2016
This cottage was perfect. Great location and very beautiful decoration and furniture. We also enjoyed the cake and the the coffee in the cottage.
Donn P. Oct 2016
The accommodations were everything advertised and more ! My wife and I will return! Highly recommend !!

Dawn G. Oct 2016
Had a great trip with my mom. The cottages were very cute. Lots of little treats in the room. Champagne and orange juice. Cereal and milk. And a coffee cake. You also get a free wine tasting while you stay at this property.
Nicholas J B. Sep 2016
Overall the experience was great. The cottage that we stayed in was secluded enough for privacy but you had access to the winery with a few minute walk. Also, the 290 wine shuttle ($25/per person) picked us up at the cottage and took us to any of the 14 wineries on their list. The cottage was clean and the perfect size for us to relax for the weekend while drinking wine and touring the small town. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend filled with wine and good food, then I recommend this destination.
Tiffany B. Sep 2016
The property and cabins are wonderful. We were quiet surprised by all the goodies waiting for us in our cabin. We will definitely stay again..
Nancy L. Sep 2016
Cute and comfy
Christina S. Aug 2016
Great location! Offers food and pastry with champagne. Quiet and quaint close to all vineyards. Would definitely come back again!
Charles M. Aug 2016
If anyone wanted a romantic getaway to just relax get to know each other again . I would recommend Masons Hof to anyone .
Brayden G. Jul 2016
You get your own private cottage just 10 minutes from Main Street! The property is great. Awesome deal!
Jeffrey H. Jul 2016
Wasn't to far from town and if you plan to drive yourself to winery's its is super conviate and in the middle of so many!
Aditi J. Jul 2016
We've stayed at the Messina Hof B&B in Bryan which is why we chose to stay at the Fredericksburg location.We'll be back!
Tracey M. Jun 2016
The cabin, the location, the town were all fantastic! Can't wait to return.
Jason G. Jun 2016
Great location if you are wanting to visit the wineries near Fredricksburg. You are very close to many of them at this property. The Messina Hof Hill Country location is within close walking distance, and offers some nice wines. Close to town. Very clean, nice, and well maintained property.
Erika W. Jun 2016
This location is perfect for visiting the various wineries and peach vendors! Cottage was clean, private and sweet! A bottle of champagne and orange juice is included and we enjoyed our mimosas at breakfast with the coffee cake left for us in the room. Will definitely stay here again!
Virginia P. Apr 2016
Messina Hof has to be one of the best wineries in Texas! They are always so kind, willing to teach about wine, and give great suggestions for places to eat and have fun in Fredericksburg. Thanks for the great German restaurant suggestion, TJ!
Joe W. Mar 2016
Very nice!
