Quiet Hill Ranch - Fredericksburg
Ranked #1 of 1 Doss B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 10, 2005

My family and I were looking for a long weekend getaway in the Texas Hill Country. My daughter also wanted to ride horses and just be out in the country. We found the "Quiet Hill Ranch" to have everything we wanted. We stayed in one of three cabins that are far enough away from each other so we had some privacy. They were all located on a hill so the view looking down on the Hill Country was beautiful. We saw many deer, lots of birds, as it is very much away from everything. The cabin was VERY CLEAN and tastefully decorated with a western feel. The bathrooms were clean and had showers and plenty of towels. They do not have televisions or radios, which we did not miss. Each cabin has a fire ring for roasting hot dogs, marshamallows, etc . . . which we did under the stars on a beautiful Texas evening. They also have a small pool (not heated) for the summer months. They served coffee at 7:30 in the morning, so I enjoyed my coffee on the front porch of my cabin while watching the birds at the feeders - very relaxing! Breakfast is included and served in the lodge which has a big fireplace surrounded by vintage western style leather sofa and chairs. We ate fresh eggs (from their own chickens), ham, hot biscuits, homemade jams, coffee and juice. But the best part is after breakfast when our host, Mr. Jim, leads all the children down to the barn to collect eggs from the hens, feed and chase the goats, meet "Hank" the mule and "Pork n' Beans", the pot-bellied pig that roams the ranch and is adorable. There were many photo ops at this time. They also have a small playground for the kids to play on. We signed up for the trail ride (costs extra) and learned of the history of the German immigrants and the Indians as we rode our horses around the ranch. We then drove into Fredericksburg which is about 25 minutes away and spent the day there, shopping, eating, and touring the wineries. We purchased some German sausages, cheese and wine for supper that night around our campfire. There is also a restaurant about 15 minutes away called the "Hilltop Cafe" that serves great Texas cuisine and has live music. We stayed 3 nights at the Quiet Hill Ranch and had a great time. I highly recommend it for families as well as couples who just want a place to get away, have fun and relax. Jim and his wife are wonderful hosts and I am so glad they want to share their ranch and hospitality with others.
