Gorgeous Home Near Historic Downtown Fredericksburg w/Free WiFi, Shared Firepit

Situated on more than 10 acres of Texas Hill Country and with amazing countryside and sunset views, this home is just 10 minutes from historic downtown Fredericksburg, making it the perfect place to stage your next vacation! Inside, this lovely studio has lots of rustic charm, its décor a nod to the many heads of cattle that graze the surrounding pastures. The home also includes modern amenities such as beautiful floors, a mounted 50-inch flatscreen TV for streaming a good Netflix movie, and a kitchenette equipped with an induction cooktop and a stainless steel refrigerator. After preparing a delicious meal, enjoy your creation at the dining table or take it al-fresco out on the deck. Of course, there's nothing like a little Texas barbecue, and a walk along the path will take you to the gazebo, lovingly referred to as the "Party Barn," featuring two gas grills, an outdoor dining table, a gas fire pit, and plenty of seating for gathering with friends and family. Extended-stay guests will have access to the Laundry Barn, which contains a clothes washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Nearby attractions include Enchantment Rock, National Museum of the Pacific War, Pioneer Museum, Wildseed Farms, Ft. Martin Scott Historic Site, Fredericksburg Trade Days, Vereins Kirche Museum, Old Tunnel State Park Bat Cave, Lyndon B. Johnson National State Park, and many more! Spend the day sightseeing then come home to spread out a few board games or use the high-speed WiFi to post your best selfies to your social media accounts. Don't forget to challenge someone to a game of Cornhole located in the Party Barn!

The cottage was clean and very comfortable. It was exactly what we wanted for our stay just outside of Fredricksburg. We'll definitely consider staying again when we plan another trip to the area.
My fiancée and I went on a weekend trip here during the Christmas parade time and it was amazing. The cottage was very nice and very clean. We could not have been more please with the location. About 15-20 minutes from Main Street where all of the shops, restaurants, and activities are at but is also secluded for a quiet stay. We would definitely stay here again and recommend that anyone else coming stays here.

I cannot say enough good things about Windmill Meadows Guest Cottages!! The cottages are decorated in a modern farmhouse vibe and very clean, bright, and so so spacious. Everything down to the showers were amazing. We were pleasantly surprised that the kitchen area had a full-size refrigrator. We really enjoyed returning from the wineries and dinner to hang out under the covered gazebo and fire pit. There’s even a couple of gas grills available. We won’t stay anywhere else in Fredericksburg. The overall experience was superb!
