  • Cute and quiet place


    This is a very cute place! Less than 10 min from Main Street. Far enough away to be secluded, but a short drive to town! There was miscommunication between the owner and rental property, so the owner was not aware of us coming. Which would explain the bathroom floor a little dirty, and lightbulbs that were out. The light bulbs that did work were very dim. I had to use my flashlight on my phone a lot if I was looking for something. But at the same time makes it very cozy. The ceiling fans had quite a bit of dust on them, so I didn’t want to use them. But the best part was sitting in the hot tub at night under the stars! That was incredible! I recommend staying here. I assume there will be better communication in the future and the place will look a little better when you arrive. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Holiday Get Away


    We were so pleased with our choice of the August Schmidt Cottage. While very busy in Fredericksburg, it was so relaxing to return in just minutes to the cottage, to the quiet of the country and the beautiful starry nights above the hot tub. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay from a well equipped kitchen, to a comfortable bedroom and updated bath, to a living room with wonderful old pictures, books, and travel guides. We even took Mike's advise on the restaurants and were not disappointed. And to top it off, we had farm fresh eggs to enjoy with our coffee on the front porch!

  • A Beautiful Escape to Hill Country


    My husband and I stayed here as a little weekend getaway and it was perfect. The house is beautifully maintained while still feeling rustic and unique, the property is lovely and very close to town (though we chose to stay here for the peace and quiet) and the hot tub under the stars at night was amazing. The owner, Mike, came by to make sure everything was ok upon our arrival and left us eggs from his chickens before we left. While we were there, a strong cold front blew through, but the house stayed perfectly cozy. Would absolutely stay here again!

  • The Stars at Night


    What a cozy and delightful space! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at August Schmidt house. Mike was a great host and the fresh eggs from the chickens were yummy. And yes, the stars at night ARE big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas!

  • Great place!


    We spent a lot of our time on the swing on the front porch watching the deer and sheep on the property! Highly recommend.
