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.

Eli's is a one bedroom suite which was added to the original historic structure by a family of preservationists. The original windmill and cypress water tank grace the private limestone terrace. Inside, architectural artifacts from around the world work to create a haven from the ordinary. The cast iron mantle from a Philadelphia mansion, antique carved wood sculpture bed frame and antler chandelier all grace the natural integrity of the limestone wall. Featured in the bath is a two person jetted tub which is set in a glass block wall allowing at the same time private and natural light.

The suites uses Brooklinen sheet and towels.

"The cabin was beautiful and the town always pleasant. Even had a fox sleeping on our roof to add to the rustic experience."

"Eli's bed was comfortable. We felt the rental company should explain that the bath is very difficult to get in and out of. We are pretty agile and we had difficulty. Additionally, the jacuzzi bath did not seem clean especially the jets."

"Should have read the reviews, they state our largest issue…. no shower and the bed came up to my fiancés chest. Literally need to jump up off the stool to get in. Then there was the now shower. The coolish tub had a wand to sort of shower but we had to clean the tub before getting in. Then when we turned on the jets it blew everything that was in them out and it was pretty gross. Only used once because we were grossed out. Location is good but this place needs a severe deep cleaning to move up to 3 stars. The bed was so high to begin with and the pillows matched being super thick and the other side of that is the mattress was so soft it made the pillows feel that much thicker. Finally got sleep when I didn't use a pillow."

"We go to Fredericksburg 2-4 times a year and we stay at the Austin St retreat each and every time! It is by far the best place in town! Eli's is our favorite of the group, but there isn't a bad one at the retreat. The whirlpool tub is amazing and the whole location is just terrific!"

"Check in and check out went fine. Eli's unit was clean inside. Property outside in immediate vicinity of Eli's needs serious upkeep an maintenance however. Furnishings were well suited to the space. I didn't realize there is no standing shower in the bathroom, only an oversized garden tub with water jets. The entry and exit to the tub is difficult and frankly dangerous due to the uneven surfaces consisting of rocks grouted together sloping away from the tub. I am 6-ft tall and struck my head on a low part of the ceiling over the sink. Also there is a deer antler chandelier over the bed (main light fixture in the room) which didn't appear to work. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows to use."

"This was our second stay at Austin Street Retreat. We stayed in Eli's place and it was charming and cozy. It was a beautiful weekend with warm days and cool nights. My husband made a great little fire in the fireplace and we relaxed on the patio in the mornings. Very comfortable and easy to walk from down town main street area which we did all weekend long."

"I rented the Eli as a gift for my son and daughter-in-law for their wedding/honeymoon. They loved the privacy and completely enjoyed the house! I also ordered some extras like wine and baked goods so they could really enjoy some quality time together and they absolutely loved it! They will be going back for another trip on one of their anniversaries and have convinced my husband and I to go as well! Thank you so much for helping me with this very important gift to my son and my new daughter! See you soon."

"The stay was wonderful we were greeted nicely upon arrival the room key even came with coupons for breakfast and a voucher for free earrings (which turned out to be an $80 value!). The bathroom was as amazing as the last time we stayed at the Eli and it just felt like the perfect getaway......except for the bed. The bed was a nice king size but the mattress was an old spring mattress that was just about the same as sleeping on a slab of granite. My wife has a bad back so it was bad enough that we needed to pick up a mattress pad to make it bearable. If the mattress gets upgraded (just to something a bit newer I’m not saying we were expecting tempurpedic) than the Eli would be a 5/5 10/10 every time!"
