Fodor's Expert Review Austin Street Retreat

408 W. Austin St., Fredericksburg, Texas, 78624, USA

One of the most popular downtown guesthouses, the Austin Street Retreat offers five elegantly appointed private suites, each featuring the original fachwerk log-cabin and limestone architecture used by the first Fredericksburg settlers. You're in the heart of the town here, but once you enter the compound you'll likely feel like you're approaching a cabin in the woods. Get directions and reservations through Gästehaus Schmidt.
