Located on the Pedernales River, only fifteen miles from Fredericksburg, in Stonewall is a charming old two-story limestone rock home. Upstairs above the homeowner's home is "Heimplatz Am Fluss" which means "Homeplace on the River". The home was built in 1880 by Henry Jacoby and bought by your hostess' family in 1950. Recently, a great deal of work was done by the family toward the complete restoration of the upstairs suite.
Outside on the porch, the staircase leads guests to the upstairs suite. Original to the home is the porch, which has an unusually low roof. Inside are three rooms all with the initial wood floors. A deep green floral rug attractively accents an antique love seat. A table for two is cozily situated in the corner and a family heirloom cabinet is used as storage for kitchen necessities. The kitchen also has a small refrigerator and coffeemaker.
Crocheted pillows and dust ruffle accent a queen-size bed topped with chenille spread. Antique dressers found in the bedroom are family keepsakes. The armoire is not only wonderful for hanging clothes, but take time to read a few lines of interesting history your hostess' mother documented on the inside door. The bath has a tub with shower.
Heimplatz is located across the road from the Pedernales River. Your hosts' own 2 1/2 acres on the river and invite guests to fish and picnic during their stay. While visiting this old German homestead, if in season, enjoy viewing the wonderful flower and vegetable gardens so prevalently found on the property.
