Austin Street Retreat - Kristin's

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom


The Austin Street Retreat is an authentic historic home built by European settlers well over a century ago. Restored and embellished through the decades with modern amenities, there are now five unique suites. Located one block off Main Street in Fredericksburg’s National Historic District, this premier property is a genuine Texas treasure built of stone, timber and stucco. It is situated on a large double lot shaded by old growth pecan trees and perennials from the LBJ Ranch. Each suite features elegant, charming decor along with a private terrace. Popular for Hill Country Wine Tours, family and friend reunions, special occasions and celebrations, the Retreat can sleep a total of twelve people. KRISTIN’S SUITE The original settlers’ home was ingeniously added on to just four decades ago but retained the feel and integrity of the 1800’s. As you enter the foyer paved with D’Hanis tile, a warm sense of history greets you. The bedroom/sitting room is magnificently large, rising to twenty foot ceilings at the peak. A wood burning fireplace provides warmth near the king size iron bed. Kristin’s bath has a long and colorful history. In 1885, the Sheriff of Fredericksburg was the home’s original builder and owner, John Walter. An unfortunate fire destroyed the local jail and what better place to house the lawbreakers than the Sheriff’s stone barn. Iron bars were added over the windows to prevent early checkout and they remain today. This former barn and jail has limestone walls and a triangular jetted tub for two. Kristin’s large private terrace is anchored by an ancient ivy covered pecan tree and a softly bubbling fountain. Relaxing and inviting for two, it is the perfect space for convivial gatherings. Have your morning coffee or relax with an evening glass of wine here for a memorable and authentic Fredericksburg experience.
