Nestled in the hills just outside Fredericksburg alongside the year round flowing Palo Alto Creek, is a wonderful pioneer farmstead. Palo Alto Creek Farm retains all of its original buildings, providing a visual timeline from when this farmstead was first settled in 1854 by German immigrant Peter Itz and his family, until the present day.

Maybe you saw Palo Alto in one or more of the following publications: Log Home Living (June, 2000) featured The Log Cabin; Country Accents (July/Aug 1998) featured The Barn; Texas Journey (January/February 2000) featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as one of the Five Great Romantic Getaways.; National Geographic Traveler (Nov/Dec. 2002) featured The Barn; and Texas Monthly (Dec 2002) featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as one of 25 favorite things that make Texas delightfully different.

While staying a Palo Alto Creek Farm enjoy the abundant wildlife. Early in the morning, wild turkey have been known to meander up the creek, and there is a never ending display of bird activity and song. And, if you want a real soul-expanding experience, go outside at night and look up! The stars are incredible. Guests especially enjoy sitting in the swing under an 800 year old Live Oak to watch the deer that come in each evening. Guests are free to roam the acreage. The surrounding area is ideal for walking, running, hiking or biking.

The Hideaway
The Hideaway began as a single car garage, later served as an office, and finally became a special accommodation for two. Named as a tribute to Karl Itz, The Hideaway is furnished and decorated with rustic antiques. After a good night’s sleep, start the day off in the large, walk-in shower of tumbled marble. Relax in the fresh country air on the wraparound screened porch.
