Keidel Inn & Gasthaus
Ranked #28 of 82 Fredericksburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 5, 2008

Our stay was very pleasant at the gasthaus of the Dad Keidel B&B. I was travelling with three of my girlfriends and the bedroom loft upstairs with the pull out queen sofa downstairs suited us all comfortably! We spent most of our time shopping, tasting wine, and exploring the town so it's location was perfect for us. When we arrived at the house around 7pm, we were unable to find sheets for the sleeper sofa. I called Fred and he quickly came over to unlock the linen closet and set up the sofa bed for us! Gloria prepared a wonderful breakfast for us in the main house the next morning. We definitely felt like part of the family and would stay here again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit at Keidel Inn! There were 8 of us and there was plenty of room for all us to spread out and visit or go off and be alone. The decor was beautiful and the host and hostess were the best part. The lovliest of people- feed us superb and gave us great info about the town , stores and restauants. Only one request from the eldest in our group- she would have liked safety strips in the tub upstairs.

My husband and I stayed at Das Keidel Inn for our second anniversary. Fred and Gloria were very friendly and hospitable, and made some amazing breakfast! The inn itself is well-maintained and has tasteful antique decor, which is not over-the-top ( If you are looking for a B&B with tons of flowered fabrics, flowered wallpaper, or doilies everywhere, this is not the place for you).

We stayed in the Rhine suite downstairs, which has its own entrance off the veranda, and the bed was very comfortable. The shower is pretty small, so larger men might have to stoop, and the water pressure is low. I'm not sure if that is due to a clogged shower head or just the water line itself, but it makes rinsing off all the lather a bit time-consuming. The room is equipped with a coffeemaker and coffee, cups, creamer, etc, as well as wine glasses, a TV, and a mini-fridge, which are great finishing touches which help make your stay more comfortable.

Overall, we had no problems whatsoever. Gloria was very willing to give suggestions on where to eat or shop, and also knew the history of the inn and the founding of Fredericksburg, which was great. We highly recommend Das Keidel Inn, and are already trying to decide when we will be returning!

We booked online and didn't get a confirmation. Our hosts somehow didn't get the online registration. So a little glitch there, but happily they were able to accomodate us. The Rhine Suite is comfortable and attractive. The bed is incredibly comfortable. I would give this Inn an excellent rating based on the bed, location, wonderful breakfasts and the very, very nice owners..Fred and Gloria. The small detractor: the Rhine Suite's bathroom is cruise ship sized without a bathtub and has peeling wallpaper. However, right alongside the Rhine Suite is the house's bathroom with a tub, so that's available and does somewhat overcome this issue. Fred had told us that the other party sharing the house was a group of women; Friday night was pretty loud. Thankfully, the group of ladies was very nice and my husband and I had lots of wine with dinner on Sat. night, so it was okay. Note to self: always ask who the other guests are and when the owners tell you its a "girls' getaway group" understand what that means. We would definately go back to Das Keidel...next time we'll phone in our reseveration.

Staying at Das Keidel Inn was a wonderful experience. The owners, Fred and Gloria Soto, went out of their way to accomodate our group of 10 women. The Inn is beautiful and inviting, not to mention extremely convenient to all Fredericksburg has to offer. This is definitely a place I would recommend to friends and family.

Fred and Gloria where the best .Very kind and good people.There was 8 adults 3 small (under 3) children and 1 dog staying 2 nights in this magnificent home.And we felt like we where home.The rooms where very clean and absolutely beautiful as was the whole home.The beds where absolutely the most comfortable beds I have ever sleep in , you just sink into them.The great thing was that it was so close to the shopping and main street that you just leave your car at the home and walk wherever you want.OH the breakfast was great.This is a TRUE bed and breakfast.Where do you go that you get to go to the kitchen and have a real breakfast waiting for you ? I'm already planning my girls weekend out with freinds and it will have to be planned around a weekend when I can stay here.Fred and Gloria TWO THUMBS UP .Thanks The Zumwalt family.

We found Das Keidel Inn to be perfect for bringing together several generations of our family for a spring break vacation. The assortment of rooms and suites gave us flexibility to house assorted family groups while everyone had some privacy. We took over the entire property and so were able to use the kitchen to make our breakfasts and an occasional dinner -- which might have been a mistake as we read the guest book comments begging for the recipes for dishes that Gloria and Fred typically provided for breakfast.

The house is large and comfortable. The kitchen is large enough for several people to work at once while visiting with others in the adjoining sitting area watching TV. The dining room is elegant, as is the lovely den, and the family had lots of room to spread out for conversations inside or out on the patio by the fountain.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, you can see the confident decorating skills of the Sotos in every room. Also important, it is well stocked, so little things like scissors or tape are on hand, so you don't have to run to the store for incidentals should you need something.

The Inn is located on Main Street near the end of the main shopping areas so all the Main Street shops and restaurants are within walking distance but there are few pedestrians in that block. The hustle and bustle of Main Street fades quickly after dark and so we were not disturbed by traffic sounds in the evening. Only my sister staying in the GaustHouse heard the early morning rooster. (We thought it was her imagination until my mom ran into the rooster inside one of the nearby shops.)

Fredericksburg itself if well located for exploring the Hill Country. We hiked and picniced at Pedernalles Falls and at Enchanted Rock, each are worth a full day. We visited the Cave Without A Name -- which was one of the best caves with narration we have ever toured. We spent a day in San Antonio and a day just walking Main Street in town. Several afternoons were spent visiting area wineries. We had a wonderful meal at the Hill Top Cafe one evening, and enjoyed a few other local restaurants in town and in neighboring towns.

Unfortunately, March is too early for the Wildseed Wildflower Farm ,or fresh peaches, or the Trade Days so we will have to plan another visit later in the year. When we do, we will stay here again.

Stayed: March 2008
