This is a great property set up just on the edge of Downtown Fredericksburg yet it feels like you are off in the country on secluded land. The cabins are very cozy and the running stream adds to the aviance. There are several cabins spread around and we stayed in the Wasserfall as it is a Pet Friendly cabin. We never heard a neighbor or a noise other than the water flowing into the stream.
It is hot in Texas in August but there always seemed to be a breeze blowing and plenty of shade for rocking on the front porch. I have never travelled to Switzerland but after staying in this cabin it is definitely a to do for me now!!
The cabins are on private property about 3 blocks from downtown so you can enjoy the shopping and German atmosphere where you can then retreat to the quietness of the cabins.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and a small apt refrigerator. No stove, but there is a microwave and bbq pit on every property. The bath is an amazing hot tub. There is a fireplace, dish tv and plenty of cozy country living furniture that makes this place just an absolute must for a romantic or even just a quiet getaway from the hustle bustle.
Negatives: If your not use to critters in the country this could be a turn off, but there were several wasps gathering on the ceiling inside the cabin, but there was spray to remove them and once that happened they weren't an issue. We had a small shih tzu along for the trip and he's a puppy. He encountered a scorpion on his trip outdoors for a potty break. He was stung on his back leg and was quite sad and sulky for a few hours but he recovered well. Just check all your things if you leave anything outside including pets to ensure none of the scorpions are trying to hitch a ride.
Otherwise we will definitely return and preferrably in the early spring when bluebonnets are out or in the fall so we can enjoy using the fireplace. There is AC and it did a great job of taking away the summer August heat for our indoor activities.
