Fodor's Review

Just a few miles outside of Fredericksburg and nestled along the shady Palo Alto Creek, this property has the original 1875 buildings built by German immigrant Karl Itz. They've been updated with modern amenities, yet they're perfect for fans of the outdoors. Choose from the main Itz House, which sleeps eight, or opt for the quainter Log Cabin, Barn, or Hideaway cabin, all complete with a screened-in porch. Children are not allowed to stay in certain rooms. A breakfast

of fresh pastries is delivered to your door each morning. Get directions and reserve through Gästehaus Schmidt.
