The Austin Street Retreat is an authentic historic home built by European settlers well over a century ago. Restored and embellished through the decades with modern amenities, there are now five unique suites. Located one block off Main Street in Fredericksburg’s National Historic District, this premier property is an authentic Texas treasure built of stone, timber and stucco. It is situated on a large double lot shaded by old growth pecan trees and perennials from the LBJ Ranch. Each suite features elegant, charming decor along with a private terrace.
Popular for Hill Country wine tours, family and friend reunions, special occasions and celebrations, the Retreat can sleep a total of twelve people.
There is a jewel resting among the large old pecan trees at the back of the German Immigration Company Townlot called Annie’s Cabin. You might expect to come upon this little cabin out in the woods, while hiking through Europe, yet it is located in a private setting behind the Austin Street Retreat. Annie’s Cabin is famous in Fredericksburg for a look and feel that is nouveau Victorian and sexy at the same time. This spacious cabin (with a bath as large as many bedrooms) conjures a sensuous evening of tranquility and romance. The look was achieved by giving total artistic control to the owners of the Homestead store.
The stuccoed exterior and window boxes give you a hint of the charm waiting inside. The bedroom/sitting room you enter has a time worn look with smokey rose walls. The head and front of the king-size bed are made of an old iron fence embellished by a Fredericksburg craftsman to make it a “Cupid’s arrow” bed. A fireplace and handpainted Victorian cottage chest add more touches of romance. Two cozy upholstered chairs offer a place to ponder the simplicity and beauty of this cottage.
The bathroom includes walls that are the color and texture of parchment paper, and a soaking tub for two surrounded by native rock. Inspired ideas from the designers include a tree branch towel rack and a built in shadow box shelf filled with treasures from near and far
