The hideaway was picked as it was smaller and less expensive. Just two of us didnt need the bigger places here. We did a two night stay and had no problems. There is no maid service here and it wasn't needed. They stock it with plenty of shower and toilet needs. It's nice to find a property that spends the...

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in The Hideaway and appreciate your taking the time to write a review for us. For a few years we kept The Hideaway for ourselves but opened it up several years ago after guests staying in the other houses asked about "the place with the wrap-around screened porch." We feel that...

I was blessed enough to stay at the Log Cabin on this beautiful, one of a kind part of history. It is my understanding that this is the oldest in tact settlement in Texas! Back in the day it was a working farm for a German immigrant family and the current owners have outdone themselves in restoring and modernizing this...

We stayed in The Barn -- and it was great for a few days for a couple looking for some peaceful R&R. Beautiful, clean, comfortable -- and a nice distance from downtown Fredericksburg. A couple of things would make it perfect, notably (I) a real shower (not just a handheld in a tub), (ii) wireless internet, and (iii) a TV...

The house was lovely and very roomy. It was close enough to town to drive in for dinners and winery hopping, but far enough away to be quiet, see all the stars and enjoy the beautiful Texas landscape.

Palo Alto Creek Farm is a real paradise outside of Fredericksburg. It's a lovely experience for those people who really want to get away from it all. There's no check-in experience, you pick the keys up in town, and you don't see anyone while you're there. Our cabin, called the Hideaway, was very small but cute. The finishing touches were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palo Alto Creek Farm is a true country getaway. We offer all the amenities of a fine hotel with the privacy of your own home. 4 guesthouses have everything you need for a romantic weekend or a fully equipped home for a longer visit. Aside from our day spa and massage services, a favorite activity at the farm is sitting in the swing under the ancient grandfather Oak tree—the same tree the Comanche probably sheltered beneath. ... more   less
