Moonrise Retreat is a beautiful cabin that looks out over Palo Alto Creek Valley. It is located on a small farm that is home to chickens, two horses, two sheep, Dottie the cat, Gracie the miniature Australian Shepherd, and a few cattle. The road has no through-traffic so it is quiet and peaceful. (inspirational for early morning or evening walks)

The cabin can house up to 9 people with it's 3 bedrooms with king-size beds, one queen foldout couch, one roll away bed and one regular couch that is large enough to sleep on.

Interaction with guests
Daniel and I live about 50 yards from the cabin. The gathering place for the cabin is on the opposite side of the house from our house.

You can check in on your own. I will come over to meet you and will offer any help you need during your stay.

We are happy to interact with you during your stay, however, that is totally up to you. Otherwise, we give you your space and privacy.

Often on weekends, we are gone.

We loved our recent stay at Moonrise Retreat. The pictures do not really do the place justice. The guest house is clean, the linens fresh, the upstairs bedrooms are large and airy, the downstairs bedroom is cozy and beautiful and Laurie was so helpful and thoughtful. The kitchen was well stocked with breakfast foods and everything we needed for our...

Thanks so much for your kind review! We were so happy to host you and your family! Please return, soon!

The owners were wonderful. Fresh eggs from the chickens on the small farm, horses, cows were 1st things to see when waking in the A.M. My dog loved being able to run around and play with the owner's dog, Gracie. This was a girl's weekend getaway and was relaxing but yet close enough to get to Fredericksburg quickly. Great stay!

Management response:

It was so wonderful to have you and your friends and Grace stay at Moonrise Retreat for your birthday celebration. You were the perfect guests and it makes us very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay. Please come back to stay with us very soon! Have a great year!
