Image GalleryMore Photos
Gemutlichkeit! This German word means good cheer and belonging, and it's embodied by this warm and welcoming German Ranch Haus. "Omie" is German for "Grandma," and this was home to a German couple whose family and friends filled it for years. You can almost hear their hearty laughter! The mantle was built from a cedar tree, and its stump out back has the loving couple's names carved into it. Just ten miles from Fredericksburg, this beautiful home is nestled in breathtaking Hill Country scenery.

Wilkommen! Fredericksburg celebrates its German heritage with authentic cuisine, craft beer, wine, and a picturesque and historic downtown peppered with fascinating local shops. Surrounded by state parks, natural areas, and sites of historical interest, this Hill Country town offers something for everyone!
With three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half baths, this spacious country home is the perfect location for both a family getaway or a gathering of friends. It's got the best of both worlds: quiet and remote, replete with wildlife and views of the beautiful Texas Hill Country-and it even comes with a telescope for stargazing! On the modern amenity side of things, it's comfortably appointed, with a fully-furnished kitchen, fireplace, washer and dryer, TV with DVD player, and Wifi. The entire home is nicely climate-controlled, with both heat and central air.
The generously open floor plan here is perfect for conversation and gatherings of all kinds. The living room is furnished with several plush and comfy couches and recliners, and a relaxing gas fireplace. Nearby, there's a dining room table that seats four. This property is designed to comfortably accommodate and sleep up to eight people with one king-sized bed, two queen-sized, and a roomy full-sized sleeper sofa. Basic linens, such as towels and sheets, are also provided.
Just like the rest of the house, the kitchen radiates homey old-world charm, without skimping on modern conveniences. There's a refrigerator, microwave, four-burner stove, dishwasher, and Keurig coffeemaker (with an assortment of coffees and teas provided!), as well as an array of basic kitchen utensils. This kitchen was home to many family meals and happy conversations-a tradition you're invited to continue!
Outside, there are accommodations for your vehicles, as well, with a two-car (or multi-motorcycle) covered and detached carport right next to the house. There are also two RV hookups for water and electricity; though black water disposal is not available.
Surrounding the property are several miles of paved country roads, making this location perfect for hiking, biking, and motorcycle riding. There's also plenty of spacious and airy patio space, shaded and sheltered so you can enjoy the views of the countryside in any weather. Out back is a fire pit-with wood provided-and both front and back are equipped with plenty of patio furniture. There's even a corn hole (bags) game for you to enjoy out back!
