The Gastehaus Schmidt App

Visiting Fredericksburg and need directions to Navajo Grill or Grape Creek Vineyards? If you have an iPhone, now there is an app for that. Gastehaus Schmidt is partnering with select Fredericksburg businesses to make your visit more enjoyable.

You can view some of our properties in the app, without the Internet. You can find out about the Parks, Museums, Shops and other businesses, and get GPS directions directly to the front door!

Touch the “Happening Now” button and view the events going on around town, and get directions to them. There is also a list of events coming up in the next few weeks.

To get your own app, search for “Fredericksburg Texas” in the iTunes App Store. (Coming soon to the Android Market.)

We hope to see you soon!

Vogel Peach Orchard Update

The Vogel Family orchard reports that Loring peaches are nearly finished, as well as nearing the end of the Red Globe and Majestic, Ruston Reds are at mid-harvest, and the Dixilands are just beginning. They expect to start picking a few Redskins later this week as well. As has been the case throughout the season, the peaches continue to run at least 10 days ahead of a normal ripening schedule.

The Vogels are also harvesting and/or getting some great local seedless watermelons, cantaloupes, tomatoes, squash, and okra. However, the blackberries and plums are finished for the season.

Email Problems

For the last couple of weeks, it seems as if none of our confirmation emails has been delivered. This coincides with a mail server problem with our Internet Service Provider which is still unresolved. They assure us that the matter is being addressed, but they do not have any idea when it will be fixed.

If you have made a reservation with us and still have not received your email confirmation, please contact us at our toll free number 866-427-8374. We have a workaround that seems to be working.
