The Austin Street Retreat continues to be one of the most frequently photographed homes in Fredericksburg. Its fachwerk log cabin and limestone walls manifest the pioneer building techniques that make the More pre-Victorian architecture of Fredericksburg so enduring and pleasing. With an eye for premium quality including fine linens, superior quality whirlpools and elegant appointments, the Retreat has grown to five suites each with a private terrace. The yard is beautifully kept and includes many perennials from the LBJ Ranch. Located one block off Main Street in Fredericksburg’s National Historic District, this is a premier property. The immigrant heritage and a European sense of style are a natural combination which provide a truly personal “Retreat” in the Hill Country. Luxury, grace, privacy. Less

There is off street parking, close to the bnb but it is not covered. The area was safe without much foot traffic.
