Sprawling Family Estate - Private Pool, Firepit, Fireplace, WiFi, & AC - Dogs OK

A classic ranch-style home with a lovely front porch, lush lawn, and mature shade trees, The Werken Hause simply oozes comfort and charm. This spacious escape boasts an expansive fenced backyard, complete with a private pool, ample loungers, and a firepit. As soon as you enter, find a formal living space with tufted sofa seating. A family room offers a sectional and a flatscreen TV, perfect for kicking back with some popcorn for movie nights after days of wine tasting. Open to the living space, the pristine kitchen is appointed with unique emerald green cabinets, white quartz countertops, and a full suite of stainless steel appliances, including a gas range with a vent hood and a French door refrigerator. A huge island is topped with gray-veined marble and illuminated by a modern chandelier.

Through the wood-trimmed archway and down a short flight of stairs lies the formal dining area. Designed for traditional dinners— this space is equal parts elegant and homey. And it’s the place where holiday memories are made. Two farmhouse tables have room for 20 people, and an HDTV sits above the crackling fireplace. Outside, the backyard of The Werken Haus is like your own private Texas Hill Country resort. A screened-in patio has space for dining al fresco. The cerulean-blue pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and a grassy lawn. The perfect private, sun-kissed space to work on your tan, practice your backstroke, or grill some burgers for dinner on the outdoor gas range. Spend evenings with conversation around the sunken wood-burning firepit.

The dog-friendly Werken Haus is the perfect balance between a quiet, private, luxury estate and a comfy, convenient, central Texas Hill Country home. Your whole crew will have plenty of room to spread out and relax together at home. And when you’re ready to go exploring, the famous wineries, gorgeous hiking, and the hustle and bustle of historic downtown are right around the corner. Added perks include fireplace guards, central AC, and board games.

The house was perfect for our girls trip! The house is so spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. We were very pleased with our stay.
Shirley D. Dec 2022
This house was amazing. We had so much room, and everyone had their own bed. Plenty of bathrooms, which is important when you have a large group of women. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had what we needed. It was only a few blocks from everywhere. We wanted to go to eat and shop. Hope to stay here annually.

The house was absolutely wonderful for the group of 16 of us. The only beds that had to be shared were King size. Each bedroom has a bath. The only thing at all in my opinion is the 4 twin bed room doesn’t have an accessible bathroom without going into another bedroom. Otherwise, the house was perfect and just as the pictures portrayed. Wi-Fi was a problem … it would let you on and then disconnect you almost immediately. A few more mirrors would also be nice especially for that 4 twin bedroom. The island in the kitchen is perfect and beautiful. We didn’t cook there so cannot say about the utensils. There were plenty of coffee cups and wine glasses though! I would highly recommend the house and will return.
Manager response:
Hi, Dotsy, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback, we are happy you enjoyed this home. We sincerely apologize for the Wi-Fi issue. It is always our goal for our guests to be able to use everything the home has to offer. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guests’ preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

This place was perfect for my family and our friends. There was plenty of room for everyone. The pool was great for the kids. The house was very clean. We cooked our meals there and the kitchen was great. Short walk to main street and oktoberfest. If I every come with a big group again I will definitely be staying here again.

Loved that there was space for all 9 of us. Bedrooms with baths for all was a plus! Kitchen was beautiful and well laid out.

Spent a day in the pool and there was shade at different times of the day.

While the dining room had room for large gatherings, it was not comfortable for long periods because of the benches.

Would definitely return.

We loved the house and location. There was more than enough room for a couple of people.
The issues we had were the thermostat (house was not very comfortable), the filthy pool and the dead grass and stickers. We have 2 support dogs and the grass was nonexistent. The back area was very run down and needs attention.
You cannot advertise something and not deliver. That’s false advertising and Deceptice Trade Practices. We will be seeking some sort of refund, even if we have to go the legal route.
Also the thermostat situation is unnecessarily complicated. It’s a simple Google Nest but you have to know where it is. (Nothing noted on any documents regarding its location). The owner also sets the temp so forget about putting it where you would like it. The unit had trouble getting to 68 inside. The front of the house was 73 degrees and not comfortable at all. It required the ceiling fans to be on high. That gets old after a while.
In summation, we’ve stayed in some amazing houses in Fredericksburg, this house was not one of the amazing ones. It is great for a bachelorette party or a girls weekend. But the pool and back yard are a long way from being ready for vacationers. It was a huge let down! There are hundreds of other places to stay that are much nicer. And Vacasa was not very easy to work with.
Manager response:
Ann, thank you for sharing your feedback. We are disappointed to read that your recent experience was not satisfactory. We will continue to work with both our local staff and homeowner to make improvements to this home. We hope that the compensation you have since received has helped with some of the disappointment you experienced. We hope you'll give us a second chance to impress you!
Nancy S. May 2022
We loved the space. There were 19 of us and everyone had a comfortable bed. After we figured out a problem with the AC it was a very comfortable place. This place is not for you if outside surroundings are important. There is a pool and nice seating, but the pool was not as clean as we would have liked and the flower beds contained only weeds. Other wise, we had a nice stay and would stay again because of the room.
Kirk C. Mar 2022
We had 5 couples stay at the Werken Haus and it was a perfect layout for our needs. Everyone had their own private bathrooms and all had a queen size bed or larger. A very clean house with all the amenities we needed. This house is 2 blocks off of Main St and 3 blocks from an HEB. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely be going back to the Werken Haus.
