“A gem of a B & B”
Reviewed March 7, 2010

This was a lovely place to stay. We had lots of space with a cosy private sitting area, fridge , cofffee maker etc and home made biscuits. we could walk to several restaurants for our evening meal.
There was a large, comfy bed and traditional hill-country style furnishings as well as an excellent bathroom.
The highlight had to be the wonderful breakfasts freshly cooked for us as well as all the interesting conversations that we had with our hosts.
We would not hesitate to recommend this B & B to anyone and would certainly stay there again if we are ever in Texas.

Our first trip to a bed and breakfast was exactly what we wanted it to be. Quiet and Cozy, and extremely relaxing. Marsha is a very warm host, she really enjoys what she does and that is making people feel at home. This B&B is just the perfect distance from down-town Fredericksburg. Were it not 36 degrees out we could have easily walked to town. Even still we found time to ride the bicycle cruisers and the recommendations for good food were wonderful. We really enjoyed breakfast and felt that so many other places that offered, "breakfast vouchers" were missing the point of the Bed and Breakfast! Rolling out of bed around 9ish for a delicious breakfast a few steps away was wonderful and in my opinion mandatory for the true B&B experience. The jacuzzi tub and fireplace tied everything together for a weekend of absolute perfection and relaxation. We will certainly be going back here the next chance we get! WE LOVED IT!

I have been visiting the Corner Cottage for many years. There is always something to do in Fredericksburg and Corner Cottage is close to town and all the activities. The rooms are all well decorated and each one has its own theme. Every morning Marsha serves a wonderful breakfast. She serves such a big breakfast, we always skip lunch! In the spring and summer breaKfast is served on the front porch with music and birds singing. A wonderful way to start the day! Corner Cottage's location is another reason for staying there. It is on a very quiet corner across from a stream. There are bikes for riding around the quaint neighborhood and it is just a short bike ride or walk from downtown. If you are looking for a fun, relaing vacation, I recommend Corner Cottage Bed & Breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas.

My husband and I stayed at the Corner Cottage for our 10th wedding anniversary. This was our first time to stay in a bed and breakfast and we loved it! We stayed in Twiggley's Tree House. It was comfortable, very clean, and impeccably decorated. There were so many cute little accents. We had the most delicious cookies when we arrived! Marsha and Rick were very nice and friendly and really pampered us. We were able to spend time walking around town or just relaxing with a movie. Unlike a hotel, it was very quiet. And, the breakfasts are to die for! Our first breakfast was a real treat - the most delicious French toast we've ever had. The second breakfast featured a delicious breakfast casserole. Fresh fruit and wonderful scrambled eggs rounded out breakfast. If you ever travel to Fredericksburg, the Corner Cottage is the place to stay. We are already planning our second visit! We loved it!

If you're looking for a wonderful bed and breakfast experience, search no further than the Corner Cottage! Marsha was the ultimate hostess - attentive yet not pushy. The breakfasts were AMAZING. I highly recommend her butter pecan french toast. If you're lucky enough to be served this delicacy, you won't soon forget it. Although it was much too cold to eat on the front porch, the kitchen breakfast table made us all feel welcome.

We stayed in the Blue Moon Hideaway, and the gas fireplace in our room was incredible! We had an entire top floor in the main house to ourselves - a large bedroom with king sized bed (and fireplace), a quaint bathroom with jacuzzi tub (and a separate large dressing area for hair/makeup), and a sitting room with TV, sofa, and a snack room.

All in all, I would say this is a must-stay destination in Fredericksburg. You're close enough to walk to downtown but far enough away to feel secluded.

This stay was PERFECT. I'm sure we'll be back soon!! THANKS, MARSHA. WE LOVED IT!

My wife and I had a great time at the Corner Cottage! They have the most romantic room,(The Garden Room), that we have have ever stayed in. The breakfast on the porch was perfect, and the even had bikes for us to ride around town! Many thanks to Marsha and Rick for our memorable stay.

I stayed here last weekend and was amazed by EVERYTHING! I had always wanted to stay in a Bed & Breakfast and I must say it was far more wonderful than I imagined. The owners thought of every convenience and the rooms are so private and cozy. The web site sold me but there where so many additional surprises. The owners husband bakes the most awesome cookies and they are left in your room each day. In the kitchen area there is popcorn to pop in your microwave, soda and wine in the fridge, books and videos if you decide to enjoy one. The rooms are indescribably clean and the sheets on the oh so comfortable bed where crisp. You've got a ceiling, a lap blanket to cover with on the couch, candles to light if you choose next to the awesome Jacuzzi tub. In the morning no trouble is spared. The guests gathered at the table on the front porch and as music played above our heads we were served the most awesome home cooked breakfast. (Eggs, bacon, pancakes, fruit, etc.) The owner sat out with us and we all had the most delightful conversations. I feel my words alone cant possibly justify how impressed I was but I must say if your looking to find a place to stay..........LOOK NO MORE!!! I plan on returining often, thank you Marsha!
