To access The Vine on Middle Creek, guests drive past their vineyard and drive a short winding road to the bed and breakfast property located underneath a canopy of oak trees. To my delight, each guest is assigned a beautiful bedroom suite, complete with a walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub.

I enjoyed sitting outdoors, admiring the view from a private porch swing, when I wasn’t playing with the property’s cute dog, Zoey. In the morning, I walked a short distance to the community building for a home-cooked breakfast.

The accommodation was comfortable, clean, and spacious. There were two of us in the house, and we had more than enough room for privacy, as well as a shared kitchen. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for a weekend or week-long stay. The size of the house makes it the perfect accommodation for a family, with a separate sitting room with games and a large kitchen table. Insider tip: bring your bathing suit! There is a hot tub on the deck.

The Fischer & Wieser’s Farmstead is an all-encompassing experience located surprisingly close to downtown Fredericksburg, TX. You don’t have to leave the property to enjoy a few days of rest and recreation at these rental properties. Das Peach Haus Country Store is a beautiful food shop with many (and I mean many) delicious treats to enjoy: jams, jellies, and sauces. It also has a cooking school for those gourmet cooks looking for interesting recipes with local flavours.

Fancy a drink? Look no further than Dietz Distillery, located adjacent to the store. Here, you can enjoy tasty cocktails made with their gin, vodka, and ‘eau de vie’ small-batch, high-quality spirits. This property has so much to love because of its varied venues, from a large farmstead to Airstreams, a Pullman train car, and even a tiny house.

All have Adirondack chairs by the fire pit and a table for outdoor eating.
