Description

Just two blocks from Main Street, many locals and visitors have coveted this impressive two-story home over the years. Built in the late 1800s, Sussie Staudt lived in the house until 1990. A few years later the home was sold and renovated as a guesthouse. A large front porch with rockers has been restored with gingerbread to bring back the original look. The colors inside have kept with German tradition by declaring each room's personality painting with a different color and tying them together with red and deep blue. Pine floors and fabulous antiques are displayed both upstairs and down.

The living room has a warm, rich red gingham sofa comfortably arranged for TV viewing. These same colors are carried into the master bedroom. A grey tufted King bed is topped with white and red bedding and an assortment of fluffy pillows. The upstairs is a spacious pristine white bedroom full of color and warmth. A queen bed is decked with red, white and blue quilts and spiced with red gingham ruffles and curtains. To tie in with this traditional Fredericksburg look, there's an oversized chair adorned in red gingham to relax or read in.

In the back of the house is a kitchen equipped for light cooking. White tile backdrops and countertops and an array of decorative tiles enrich the pine cabinets.

The home has been lovingly renovated and decorated. Each room is furnished with wonderful antiques and has original pine floors and area rugs. The rooms are bright and cheerful and much thought has been given to guests' needs.

The outdoor space is equally enticing with a pleasant backyard, charcoal grill (charcoal not provided), and firepit (wood not provided). There is also a Level 2 EV charger conveniently located right next to the driveway.

Trek Enchanted Rock, hike, bike, shop till you drop, stroll through the garden or sit on the front porch, rock and just be. Enjoy!

Infants (children that are not yet mobile) and children aged 6 years or older are the only children allowed that at house.

One dog under 50 lbs. is allowed at the house but there is an additional nightly fee of $54/night (before tax). If you do bring a dog, please bring a crate for your dog and crate it in your absence from the house, do not allow the dog on furniture or beds, and pick up and properly dispose of its waste. If these rules are not followed, there will be an additional $200 charge added to your reservation.

Please be aware that there is a Ring camera on the front of the house that faces the street and a second camera that faces the driveway.

"Nice accomodations, very cozy. I did find myself to be cold downstairs while it was hot upstairs, however, and one door (between living room & bedroom) didn't close. Walkable distance to main street (10-15 minutes), and had several streaming services provided - this was great for when it got too cold to stay outside!"

Changed the bottom sheet and the mattress pad needs a good washing as it had spots all over it. Otherwise it was nice."

"Location was absolutely perfect! The home is charming for grown ups. Short straw gets the upstairs bedroom as the stairs are steep and it can get warm up there. Thank goodness the half bath was up there. Beds are comfy. Hot tub was enjoyable. The backyard seemed unkept but other than that everything was lovely."

The front porch was great to tell stories from that time with a great glass of wine. We will be back soon! Cheers ! - Sunday D.,,"

"We were very happy with the property. Its a really nice reminder of Fredricksburg's history. The only completly minor issie was that the EV charging outlet was not wired up yet but was mentioned as being available on the listing. But the house itself was beautiful and it was just a couple blocks from downtown and well worth the stay."

"Our trip was made more enjoyable by staying at this cute little cottage. It had everything we needed, including in the kitchen; coffee, coffee pot and a Keurig. The king-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom was comfortable including the pillows. The sheets were very soft. The stairs were steep but the upstairs bedroom offered two beds, which were comfortable. The air conditioning worked great during the extreme heat of the over 100 degree days. The only thing I regret is it was too hot to use the hot tub! It was very clean and comfortable."

We really appreciated the off street parking spot. The pricing was competitive and fair. My only suggestion for improvement is a minor one - fix the wardrobe in the bedroom so the doors will stay shut and not be partially open for potential bumps. Other than that very minor thing, thank you for an excellent stay!"

"We enjoyed staying at your home this past weekend, the Christmas Tree out front was a nice touch. All in all a very clean home, but small issue with exposed nail in kitchen floor which we all Keeped hooking on our socks was a bit annoying. All exterior windows could use major cleaning as the morning sunrise was beautiful to see only if you were out front on porch. Back yard could use some clean up and better landscaping. Yes I’m a neat freak, but that’s me..I would stay again:) Happy Holidays."
