Located just a few miles from Fredericksburg, The Shed offers wonderful views of the countryside. Originally a sheep shearing shed, this residence was built around the same time as the original house. It has been converted into the lovely yet comfortable home you now see. Your hosts did 95% of the work themselves and took great joy in creating the wonderful little cabin for their guests. The original roof tin, framing and much of the lumber was reused in the construction. Most of the furniture and all of the window shutters were built using reclaimed wood that used to line the shed walls. Original photos are showcased in the cabin.

As you drive up to The Shed, you will notice a great porch that wraps around half of the cabin. Seating on the porch is perfect for enjoying the countryside views. Inside is a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. Your hosts call the decor "rustic luxury," which you will find is both comfortable and well appointed.

The living room has a comfy sofa and oversized leather chair all placed to enjoy the direct satellite television. There are even a few games to enjoy during your stay. A fully equipped kitchen is adjacent and open to the living room. A large refrigerator, range/oven, microwave and coffeemaker are found in the kitchen.

The bedroom has a queen bed with a country patchwork quilt. Other Texana decor is found in the bedroom. The bath has a tub/shower.

Things to know:
1. Your host lives in separate, private residence on the property. Your accommodation and this other house are around 25 yards from each other.
2. The ceilings of the accommodation, particularly in the bedroom, are quite low. Anyone close to 6'0" tall or larger might find that their head touches the ceiling.

Please Note: You are renting a cabin in the Hill Country which means you may encounter wildlife (Snakes, Deer, Racoons, ETC). Please be aware of your surroundings, and take caution while driving at night. You may also encounter the various bugs, spiders, scorpions and mice that live in the country AND sometimes do make their way inside. All properties do utilize pest control services on a regular basis BUT this does not guarantee no pests or bugs will be visible.

Property policy: the primary guest must be at least 21 years old

"Nothing takes me back home like having chickens roaming freely in the yard, and an old yellow dog to greet you. The place was very enjoyable. The only complaint I have is they need to lighten up on the fragrance of the laundry. I was unable to sleep in the bed because the laundry fragrance gave me a head ache. It would be a great place for my wife and I to come stay but she is even more sensitive to fragrances."

"Hello, maybe I'm not the "normal" VRBO guest or maybe my expectations are high? This would not be considered luxurious to me, I would change the adjective to Rustic. The view of the countryside was pleasant from the porch and the bed was soft and comfortable. We did find bugs on the kitchen counter tops, and mildew in the shower which probably just needs the caulking replaced. I never received an email from the rental company telling me where the key was or providing insructions for check out. I had to find a phone number to call them an hour before check in. It, also, was very inconvenient that we had to drive back in to town to return our key when we were trying to go the opposite direction of Fredericksburg, which was why we booked outside of town to begin with. Why couldn't there be a key drop off at the rental location? I was also surprised to find that the owners live on the property and never came to greet/meet us. I've never stayed in an ABB or VRBO where there was zero communication. If you're an introvert this place is for you!"

"The Shed was great the first time and did not disappoint on our 2nd visit. We have been to Fredricksburg multiple times and have seen all the sights. The Shed allows us to unwind and unplug in a peaceful and quiet environment outside of the bustle of town. On our first visit, we enjoyed watching the deer. On this visit, we loved observing the black bellied whistling ducks feeding next door and perching on the fence between the properties. The fully furnished kitchen means that we can shop once, cook our own meals, and never have to leave the property. The living room furniture is cozy and comfortable. The rockers on the porch are great for early morning and late evening relaxing. The wife and I are already planning for a 10th anniversary trip to the Shed next year."
