My husband of 20-years and I stayed at the Austin Street Retreat - Kristin's - 20 years ago, so we decided to celebrate at the same location. We of course are 20 years older now and our recall and memory capacities are not what they used to be. The property still has the same layout and the facilities/amenities are similar... More

Thank you for visiting us 20 years later. Our favorite part of owning ASR is the fond memories guests share with us from previous visits. Congratulations and here's to many more happy years ahead for you! More

For peace and quiet, your own "home away from home," and proximity to art, wine and shopping, this is your best bet. The courtyard in Kristin's is really fun - grab a few groceries (or the previous night's doggie bag from one of the great area restaurants) and a bottle of wine - then picnic in your own private little...

We love your description of ASR. It reminds us of why we bought the property 25 years ago. It is satisfying to know that it still brings "peace and quiet" to our guests and that feeling of "coming home". More

We have been booking B&B's in Fredericksburg Texas for 20 years. Austin Street Retreat used to be one of our favorites. Oh how the mighty have fallen. On arriving, we found the place to be dirty and tired. The carpet should have been changed 5 years ago. When we pulled the sofa back to look for something, we found a... More

We are disappointed to read the description of your recent visit to Kristin's Suite. The water heater was replaced 3 months ago and no other guests have had the problem you mention. In addition to the thorough cleaning that our team does, we routinely have responsible pest control, a professional building maintenance program and have never had a report that... More

My husband and I stayed in El Jefe for our honeymoon. It was very cute and enjoyable! It was close to the center of town, but we loved how secluded Austin Street Retreat felt. The only minor complaint my husband and I had was that there was no stand-up shower. The tub (which was WONDERFUL and relaxing) had a hand-held... More

My husband and I stayed in Kristin's Room at Austin Street Retreat! This room was amazing! The sitting area was nice and cozy with the fireplace (wood provided) going. Since Fredericksburg is a town that closes down pretty early, it was nice to have this area to just sit an enjoy a nice glass of wine and good conversation. The... More

I loved the room at El Jefe and thought it was so charming! However, the bed sagged beyond what was comfortable and for the price, I thought it was not acceptable. After we returned home, I contacted the manager (who is not on site) and let them know that I was unhappy. They told me that a part of the... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple days right after our wedding in 2013 as a sort of pre-honeymoon before our trip to Scotland months later. Austin Street Retreat has a few different houses on the property to choose from. We stayed in El Jefe, a somewhat Spanish-style two-story place. The bedroom/living room is on the ground floor...

We have stayed in the Kristen Cottage twice and have thoroughly enjoyed both stays. The cottage rooms are large with a large private courtyard area. Even in town, you feel secluded in your own little oasis. The two person jetted tub is a perfect way to wind down the day. It is a little bit of a walk form the... More

We stayed in Kristen's cabin and loved it! It was built in 1876 and has a lot of charm. The outside courtyard is also nice. The only draw back is no shower, but it does have a large jetted tub. The location is great, it is only a short one block walk to Main Street.
