Omie's Ranch Haus in Fredericksburg

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

Gemutlichkeit! This German word means good cheer, and it's embodied by this warm and welcoming German Ranch Haus. "Omie" is German for "Grandma," and this was home to a sweet 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 couple's names carved into it. Just ten miles from downtown Fredericksburg, this family weekend getaway is nestled in breathtaking Hill Country scenery.

With three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half baths, Omie's Ranch Haus in Fredericksburg is the perfect location for a family getaway or a gathering of friends. It's quiet and remote, replete with wildlife and Hill Country views-and a telescope for stargazing! For modern amenities, it's appointed with a fully-furnished kitchen, fireplace, washer and dryer, TV with DVD player, and Wifi. The entire home is climate-controlled, with both heat and central air.

The open floor plan here is perfect for gatherings of all kinds. The living room features several couches and recliners, and a gas fireplace. Nearby, there's a dining room table that seats four. This property comfortably sleeps up to eight with two king-sized beds, one queen-sized bed, and a roomy full-sized sleeper sofa in one of the bedrooms. Bed and bath linens are also provided.

The kitchen radiates old-world charm without skimping on amenities. There's a fridge, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and Keurig coffeemaker (coffees and teas provided), as well as basic kitchen utensils. This kitchen was home to many meals and happy conversations-a tradition you're invited to continue!

Outside, there's a two-car covered and detached carport right next to the house. There are also two RV hookups for water and electricity; black water disposal is not available.

Surrounding the property are miles of paved country roads, making it perfect for hiking, biking, and motorcycle riding. There's ample shaded patio space, so you can enjoy the views in any weather. Out back is a fire pit-wood provided-and both front and back have plenty of patio furniture. There's even a corn hole (bags) game for you to enjoy!

Omie's Haus is full of the warmth and joy that family and friends bring. Bring those you hold dear, and use this scenic location to build unforgettable memories of your Hill Country vacation! Check out what makes this one of the top picks for family vacations in Texas.

Debbie and Bing are fabulous hosts and very personable. The property is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We loved drinking our morning coffee while watching the wildlife. I highly recommend this property.

Just as the pictures show; the home is very clean and offers all of the amenities you would want and need. We spent almost the whole time outdoors when we were at the house. We grilled, hung out on the swings and star gazed every night. This home is perfect for all ages, and we hope to visit again soon!

This was the perfect place for me and a friend to stay. It was so clean and comfortable with everything you need for a home away from home, including a nicely equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and clean bathrooms. The sheep in the neighboring pasture were such a delight to watch and so were the deer, birds, and other wildlife that roamed around the surrounding land. The views were breathtaking and we delighted in sitting on one of the many porches each morning and evening to enjoy the peace and quiet. We greatly enjoyed our visit with the owners, Bing and Debbie, and look forward to staying in touch with them. It was truly the perfect place to rest, relax, and pray. We are so grateful and honored to have gotten to stay at Omie's Haus.

Five Stars for this big, gorgeous house and it’s incredible hosts! We only wish we could have stayed longer. Bing & Debbie are like your favorite cool relatives who have a huge guest house with every conceivable amenity plus terrific company if you choose. So quiet and private, but just 10 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg. Sparkling clean, you could eat off the floors. For the first couple days we were super busy, coming in late each night and the hosts graciously gave us space & privacy. But I’m so glad I texted Debbie on our last full day so that we could meet them! We cooked amazing steaks on the charcoal grill, enjoyed the spectacular master shower, watched the deer come right up into the yard, sheep just 100 yards away. Pictures don’t do the house justice: Even bigger & nicer than we thought. Beautiful gas fireplace, full wraparound porch on 4 sides, covered parking, even high-quality binoculars for deer watching. Perfect for couples, families, kids, or girls’ trip. We can’t wait to go back. Don’t hesitate: BOOK NOW!

We absolutely loved our stay here! The house was awesome and very clean. The property was beautiful and the owners were very friendly. We really enjoyed seeing the deer, cows and sheep everyday. We will be back!
