Saddle up and enjoy your stay at The Running Horse Cottage— a luxury one-bedroom cottage experience in the heart of Texas Hill Country. You’ll know you’ve arrived at The Running Horse when you glimpse the metal galloping horse sculpture guarding the front door. Surrounded by lush countryside and peaceful views, The Running Horse Cottage allows you to completely relax, while still keeping you close to the action in downtown Fredericksburg.

A winding pathway leads through the bushes and up to the charming portico and front door. Once inside, the cozy living area feels spacious and open— thanks to the soaring vaulted ceilings and lots of natural sunlight pouring inside. The main living area is split into a bedroom and a sitting area. The bedroom features a plush king-size bed set into an elegant wood frame and flanked by two matching side tables with convenient reading lamps. A queen-size air mattress can also be supplied upon request.

In the living space, colorful, jewel-tone armchairs face a stylish area rug and mounted flatscreen television. This comfortable arrangement creates a perfect space for reading, conversation, watching TV, or enjoying some local wine from the nearby vineyard. The corner fireplace supplies just the right touch of cozy comfort to a chilly evening. In the kitchenette, there’s a sink, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker.

This cottage also features a spacious and luxurious spa-like bathroom. Soothing pale blue walls contrast perfectly with the dark wood vanity. A separate bathtub is an ideal spot to soak soar muscles after a day of hiking or horseback riding. There’s also a step-in shower lined with classic, glossy-white subway tiles.

In the private backyard, there’s a patio space with a barbecue grill and a table with an umbrella. You’ll want to cook some steaks on the grill then roast marshmallows for dessert. The alfresco dining table creates the perfect place to sip freshly-brewed coffee while watching the sunrise, or enjoy some locally-grown wine while watching the sunset. The Running Horse Cottage allows you to enjoy the peace and quiet that the Texas Hill Country is famous for, while never being more than ten minutes away from the dining and shopping downtown.

Aside from running out of hot water when my wife tried to bathe when we’d been gone all day and the parking issue with other guest we greatly enjoyed our experience, and would and will recommend to others.

To be honest, we didn’t like staying at the Luxury Cottage… We LOVED IT! We had a joyful Christmas at the Cozi Cabin thanks to Matt and Jenna. Everything was exactly like it looked in the listing, so clean and organized. We felt safe and comfortable. Communicating with Matt and Jenna was as if they were our own neighbors. My only complaint is that we couldn’t stay longer.

We loved this airbnb! The location was great also, but like some other have said the road to get to the cottage is rocky so just a heads up if you have a smaller vehicle! It was the perfect stay for our weekend getaway! Check in was super simple as well! Would definitely stay again if we decided to come back!

Check-in Date: 2022-07-01

This cottage was an incredible find in the Texas Wine country. Every thing we needed for a great 5 night stay. We had an issue on check in with having only 1 wash cloth. They fixed it fast. Woke up every morning to a herd (12 or more) deer outside our windows and they came back about 5 each evening. Very quiet! Very private! The only thing we wished it had was a stove and dishwasher. We like eating dinner at home in the evening and a stove would have made that easier. BUT, that said this is a place YOU WANT TO STAY!!! We are planning on going again this fall!
This is the best review ever! We are so thrilled to read about such a wonderful experience at our Oak Cottage, thank you so much for sharing with us and with the Cozi Family, Robert! We are honored to receive these words as a review, Thank you! Best, Cozi Vacation Rentals

Check-in Date: 2022-05-20

Just far enough outside of town that you feel secluded, but can drive 10 minutes for more wine!

This little house was VERY clean. The bed linens, the towels - super fresh and clean. Possibly the cleanest/tidiest place I’ve ever stayed. I liked that the decor wasn’t too “kitschy” - just the right amount of handmade pottery, cool art, generally contemporary country feel.

The bathtub was amazing - didn’t even realize it had jets! I spent a total of 4 hours over 2 days soaking in the bathtub, wanted to take it home with me.

Coffee and special filters for Keurig were provided, but I’d brought my own K-Cups (drank A LOT of coffee). Roku TV was super handy for logging into my own Netflix and HBO. SUPER comfy bed and pillows with plenty of extra blankets if needed. Cozy little back porch for mornings and evenings.

At first I was a little worried as the three little houses are pretty close to each other - but I had neighbors coming and going very quietly. I needed a break from work and the real world for a couple of days and this place was absolutely perfect, will definitely recommend to friends and hope to go back someday.
Dear Rachel, Thank you for sharing your experience at our gorgeous Running Horse cottage! It truly sounds relaxing, fun and cozi! we are glad to know you were able to enjoy the space and all of the amenities our cottage has to offer! We hope you visit us again soon. Best, Cozi Vacation Rentals

Check-in Date: 2022-05-09

Had a great weekend in Fredericksburg, and had a very comfortable stay! Communication was from the Host was great, and the check in process was easy. Our cabin looked a little different than the one pictured, but it was still cute! Loved that it was a little outside of town—only about 10-13 minute drive to Main St. My partner and I enjoyed getting to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the sunset and stars that came out at night, and watch birds/deer/pollinators in the morning! Definitely would stay again.
Thank you for letting us know that you had a great weekend at this rental home, Erin! To know that our service made your stay better, makes us feel proud! We would love to host you again! Best, Cozi Vacation Rentals

Needs more towel, shower hard to cut on, and not a lot of hot water

by David B.

Check-in Date: 2021-12-06

They need to leave more then 4 towels. The shower knob is extremely hard to cut on the water. There is enough hot water to fill the bathtub once for a while. It is a very quite place and well maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but probably want stay there again.

Country cabin

by Linda R.

Check-in Date: 2021-10-14

We enjoyed our time out in the country. It was a very secure cabin in a gated area. I would stay there again. However, this was the first place that we have ever stayed in where we were asked to remove our sheets before we left, take out our trash, and wash our dishes.

by Danielle

Check-in Date: 2021-09-18

Great location and very responsive customer service. The house was clean and cozy. We loved being out in the country but only 10-15 minutes from downtown.

by Jonathan

Check-in Date: 2021-09-05

We had a great time at this location! It is in a great spot - 10 minutes from downtown and 20 or so minutes from Enchanted Rock. It was clean, neat, and even scenic! We had no problems getting to and from this location, checking in and out, or during the stay.

The only call out I would make for anyone looking to stay here is: in order to get here, you will need to drive up a somewhat rocky road uphill. So if you can, use a car that can handle the bumpy terrain. Not a downside at all for the location, it is just the reality of where it is.

by Don

Check-in Date: 2021-08-29

Our stay was perfect. It was a nice get away to recharge. The cottage had everything you needed and clean. It is a little drive to town but worth it to get away and sit peacefully. Would definitely go back for our next visit.

by Janice

Check-in Date: 2021-08-22

This is a charming cottage that was very clean, and comfortable. Enjoyed seeing the deer behind the cottage in the morning as well as many monarch butterflies. It is a quiet and peaceful place to stay and is just a short drive to Fredericksburg.

Quaint Girls Trip Getaway!

by Madison A.

Check-in Date: 2021-05-15

My best friend and I came to get away from life for the weekend and we had a blast! The place was so open, airy and felt huge! It was so clean and just the space we needed for our short stay. I let them know that since we were further out of town than originally thought (15-18 mins vs 10 mins) that complimentary waters/snacks and maybe even a cheap wine would be great to offer because the nearest store is almost 20 minutes away AND the town shuts down pretty early. Overall, the AirBnB, the bed/pillows, cleanliness, great bathroom, patios, and quietness with a tv to wind down at night was awesome! Loved it all! I’d stay here again for sure!
Dear Madison, Thank you for sharing your experience with us! we are delighted to know your girl's getaway was a blast and that our vacation home was up to your standards so that you could enjoy your stay! We appreciate the feedback, it always helps us grow and improve. We hope to host you soon. Best, Cozi Vacation Rentals

This is a beautiful, modern cottage with country charm. The owners are very helpful and friendly and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable.
The bed and sheets are the best I’ve slept in! It’s very roomy and cozy with a fireplace if needed. Gorgeous bathroom!! Big spa tub and separate walk in shower was a nice touch. We brought our dog and she got a treat from the owner. The back sitting area is so nice. We grllled out and saw a few deer. The front entrance is so beautiful too with butterfly fly plants that attract Lots of butterflies.
The is the perfect place, close to town but out enough to see the beauty Highly recommend!

Running Horse on Cherry Loop

by Paul B.

Check-in Date: 2020-10-20

Incredible! Long weekend get-away with my wife and we selected this property based on what we saw on-line and the reviews we read. 5 stars does not do this justice! Our stay was nothing short of amazing; Susan and Steve were wonderful hosts. check in was simple and exactly as they explained to us. Upon arrival we had a cheese board waiting for us, compliments of Susan and Steve. The location is easy to find and a short 10 minute drive from downtown Fredericksburg. The house is one of three rentals on the property; elevated on a hill with wonderful views. Running Horse is pet friendly and our two small dogs found themselves right at home. The stars at night are bright as there is no light pollution and it is very quiet and peaceful. We highly recommend. If you have a group of 6 you could easily rent all three properties and be close without being on top of one another. We will be back for sure!!!!!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on Monday and wanted to have a nice, quiet few days. My husband found this cozy cottage online. It was perfect!! It sits high on a hill about 8 miles outside of Fredericksburg. When we arrived there was a anniversary card from Susan & Steve. So very thoughtful. The accommodations were excellent. Beautiful fireplace, spa tub, very comfortable bed and the scenery was priceless. Will most definitely be back ?�

Absolutely Perfect Getaway

by Jessica B.

Check-in Date: 2019-11-01

My husband and I stayed for our 20th wedding anniversary, and had a great time! Susan left us an adorable cheese and fruit platter with crackers and chocolate to help us celebrate. The house was decorated really cute, and had everything we needed: homemade toiletries from a local shop in town, makeup wipes, plush robes, apartment size fridge, comfortable bedding, and bath salts for the jet tub. The fireplace was perfect for the chilly days! It was about a 10 minute drive to town, and the property had goats, deer, and an alpaca. We will definitely be back!

Amazing romantic getaway spot!

Lovely cottage on hilltop. Surrounded by nature, goats, deer, and the most amazing Monarch Butterflies!! Away from the hustle of down town Fredericksburg, yet close enough for getting great food & drinks.

Susan really makes you feel at home!!!

Excellent 5 star accommodations

Check-in Date: 2019-10-14

This property is perfect for a romantic getaway! High end touches make this cottage feel like a 5 star retreat. Scenic views, and a few short miles away from the hustle and bustle of town. This place will not disappoint. We will stay here time and time again. The owners are very nice and pay close attention to detail. 3 cottages sit next to each other making it great for 2,4, or 6 guest.

Amazing place to stay!

Loved Our Stay in Running Horse Cottage

by Mark T.

Check-in Date: 2019-04-30

We have visited Fredericksburg many times, and we were always hesitant to stay outside town. We took a chance with Running Horse Cottage, and we were so pleasantly surprised. The cottage was very nice with upscale furnishings, cabinets, fixtures, etc. We loved the natural setting with the fountain in the middle of three cottages. We loved seeing all the trees, the hummingbirds, cardinals, goats, cows, etc. And, we were only 10 minutes outside town. We had a fun, relaxing visit, and we loved the cottage and surrounding property. We highly recommend Running Horse Cottage for a peaceful, relaxing stay that is still within minutes of town, restaurants and wineries.

Satisfying!

Perfect Hill Country Cottage

by Judith C.

Check-in Date: 2019-04-16

We recently spent four nights in Running Horse Cottage and were delighted with our stay. The cottage was beautifully and thoughtfully appointed with everything we needed at hand. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by wildflowers, hummingbirds and butterflies. Susan was a gracious host and provided us with tips on where to see the wildflowers, which led us to a winding country road that we would never have found on our own. If you’re looking for peace and serenity with easy access to Fredericksburg, this is the place!

This is a beautiful property. It is only a few minutes from Fredricksburg and it makes for a great retreat after a day of hanging out in Fredricksburg. The cottages are clean and well kept and the owners think of everything...all the way down to bath salts for the tub! I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful weekend getaway in the beautiful Texas Hill country

by Julie S.

Check-in Date: 2018-04-05

We loved our stay at the cottage. The cottage itself was cozy, comfortable and quietly tucked away on lovely hilltop. The proximity to town and Enchanted Rock is very convenient. Susan was a wonderful communicator from the minute the reservation was made and had a nice assortment of cheeses waiting for us on arrival. I highly recommend this property for a quiet hill country getaway!

Beautiful property in the Texas Hill Country. Country view within minutes of Fredericksburg.

by Christopher S.

Check-in Date: 2018-03-20

The cottage is one of three encircling a water fountain. The Running Horse is a quaint cottage with bedroom, living space and great bathroom area. Patios in front and rear. Perfect for a couple of nights away from the hustle and bustle. Property is beautiful, well managed and secure.
Only thing missing is any indoor cooking, but there is an outdoor grill.
I would recommend this to family/friends and plan on a return trip.

Perfectly appointed space, great location, super hosts!

Check-in Date: 2018-02-20

We were staying at Running Horse for my husband's birthday weekend. We were welcomed with a birthday card! We brought our small dog along and there was even a chewy toy to welcome him to the cottage. The location is a short drive from town but the view is amazing. We saw deer out of the backdoor. The bathroom is really nice and the jetted tub was perfect at the end of a long day. I will definitely be back!

Perfect spot!

by Kelly N.

Check-in Date: 2018-01-21

From the beginning, sending messages to Susan regarding the property, I was greeted warmly.

Once I arrived, the house was so lovely. Everything was perfect. I paid Attention to the welcome towel with a chew stick for my puppy, everything was clean, organized and little details meant so much.

Jacuzzi tub, great shower, and I loved the comfy robe!

The bed was amazing, best nights rest!
I loved the gas grill!

This is a hidden gem and very close to Fredericksburg. If you’re wanting peace and quiet for a couples getaway, this is the perfect spot.

Perfect Getaway

by Natalie W.

This was our 3rd trip to the cottages. As always clean as whistle, bedding & towels luxurious. Just far enough out of town you see real Hill Country views & close enough to town to make it convenient. Can't recommend this highly enough. This is the best Home Away we have stayed in.

Beautiful cottage with gorgeous a view!

Running horse cottage was amazing! Not only was it decorated beautifully but Susan thought of everything we could potentially need. We stayed here for our one year wedding anniversary and it was perfect. Thank you Susan!

A lovely little cottage set just outside of Fredericksburg with every necessity and comfort!

by Karyn C.

Check-in Date: 2017-10-12

We loved our stay at the Running Horse Cottage in Fredericksburg! It was a beautiful location along a ridge with gorgeous views and a front and back porch to enjoy coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine in the afternoon. At 10 minutes outside of town, it was secluded enough to feel like your own private retreat, but very convienent to everything in and around town. Susan was a wonderful hostess, and made sure every detail was taken care of with regards to our stay. I can't recommend Running Horse Cottage enough!

This is the perfect weekend getaway spot for a couple. The cottage is beautiful inside and has high-end furniture and a modern bathroom. The bed and sheets were so comfortable! For us, the peace and quiet was worth the 5-10 minute drive from town. Our favorite part was enjoying a glass of wine on the patio. We also appreciated the owner reaching out before and after our stay to see if we needed anything. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful Running Horse Cottage in Fredericksburg!

by Cynthia H.

Check-in Date: 2017-02-17

We had a wonderful time staying at the Cherry Mountain Cottages. The property is just beautiful and within minutes of Fredericksburg's Main street shopping, Enchanted Rock, and one of our all time favorite restaurants, Hilltop Café. The cottage was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. Susan added special touches like a cheese and grape tray, and treats for our puppies. We loved relaxing in the Spa bathtub every night and there were even candles available for us to use. Everything was perfect and you can tell the owners know how to cater to their guests. They put time and effort into providing the extra touches that make you feel pampered and appreciated. I am already planning a group trip to rent all 3 cottages for our family and friends! When I texted Susan as we were leaving, she recommended a wonderful BBQ place for us to stop at on our way back to Dallas. It was delicious! Thanks Susan!

Above and Beyond

by Melissa P.

Check-in Date: 2016-12-15

This property was exactly what as advertised and more! Spotlessly clean and every effort had been made to make sure our stay was stress free and we had everything we needed. Extra effort was given to providing more than the minimal coffee and cream.... a variety of beverages, bottled water and toiletries were available at no charge. The bedding was soft and very comfortable, linens were above standard grade. The setting is very peaceful and quiet and the bathtub was a lovely way to end the day after touring around the area. Our hosts even checked for a special occasion and left us a cheese and fruit tray in the fridge for our arrival and personalized notes to commemorate our occasion. From the moment I booked, the owners texted me with great directions and their notebook on site had every bit of info and instruction that we would need. I will stay here again and refer others.....there are two other cabins like this one so it is a great option for several couples to join together and rent all three. The water feature is beautiful and I am sure it is stunning during wildflower season. Although it is slightly out of town, the view from the front porch is stunning in the morning-Hill Country hospitality at it's best.

Beautiful Cottage -Great Location!

by Roseanne and Roy S.

As a vrbo owner myself I can honestly say this cottage was perfect. It's located just a few minutes from downtown and provided a relaxing setting. Watched the deer graze from the back porch and the sunrise from the front of the property. Communication with Susan was excellent. Would love to return sometime!

Comfortable, clean, wonderful hosts

by Randall D.

Check-in Date: 2016-10-30

We were looking for a place to relax and recharge. This cottage was perfect for us, both indoors and outdoors. The inside was tastefully decorated and very clean. My wife particularly enjoyed the jetted tub. The outside had porches both front and back. Lots of butterflies and a fountain in front, lots of space and privacy in back - both nice places to spend time. I don't think we could have picked a better place to stay. Close enough to Fredericksburg to enjoy its activities. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Loved it!

Really terrific property and owner! Everything about this is first-rate.

*Very responsive and helpful owners (Thanks Susan!)

*Great attention to detail - they have really thought through everything you may want or need. A welcome gift of cheese and crackers, along with dog treats for our puppy, and a nice binder which provides an overview of the area and recommendations

*High quality property - Kohler and Moen faucets. Very comfortable sheets and pillows. A spa-style bathroom. DirecTV. Infrared gas grill out back.

*Nice location - 10 minutes to downtown Fredericksburg, perched up on a hill with good views and also has some nice breezes (really great in Texas summers). The only noise you will hear are the crickets at night. You might see goats or cows nearby and the property has lots of wildflowers and butterflies. Night sky is full of stars and peaceful.

I booked through the HomeAway app and its really a great tool, from researching to payment and providing all the needed details. After I booked, it had all the information organized and in one place – from check-in instructions to directions and local activities. Very helpful!

I've stayed in a few vacation rentals over the years, but this is the most well-run I've encountered.

Highly recommended!

This was our second time to stay at the Cherry Mountain Loop Cottages...And it was just as wonderful the second time as it was the first (wish we could have stayed longer). Upon arrival our cheese and crackers and fruit were waiting for us and the cottage was ready and immaculate. It is a quiet, country location with birds and butterflies, flowers and trees. Whether sitting on the patio reading a book, relaxing in the jacuzzi tub or watching tv with the fireplace lit, it was a joy to be there. The beds are super comfy and the fountain in front is tranquil! Don't miss an opportunity to stay at Cherry Mountain Cottages!!!

Great location, updated and comfortable living space

by Ashley N.

Check-in Date: 2016-04-27

Running Horse Cottage was very conveniently located for any Hill Country activities, and while providing seclusion and a country vibe, was also really accessible. The cottage itself is very high-quality--nicer than any hotel rooms! Not a lot of living space, but you'll mostly be out and about anyways. Susan was so helpful with information and timely responses. Highly recommend!

Great Location and Beautiful Accomodations!

by Linda P.

Check-in Date: 2016-04-13

We spent two nights at Running Horse Cottage. It is far enough away from downtown Fredericksburg to be peaceful, but close enough to be convenient for shopping and dining.
Beautiful location with butterflies, wildflowers, and hummingbirds! There are three cottages, but we hardly new anyone else was there. Although we spent much of our time enjoying the back roads and wildflowers nearby, the patio was great for enjoying the peace and quiet when we returned. Beautiful décor and thoughtful amenities add to the charm!
We hope to be back soon!

My wife and I spent our first anniversary at Running Horse Cottage. We were blown away by how nice and new it was. All the little niceties of home were still there (like having Kurig coffee and water already in the fridge) in a distinctly hill country setting. The propriaters even left us a Happy Anniversary letter! I can't recommend this highly enough.

Perfect in every way!

by Rachel G.

This property is the perfect balance of comfort, luxury, and solitude. Susan did a wonderful job making sure every detail was covered. We thought it was a much better option than staying in a hotel. We also appreciated being able to bring our dog along on the trip. We would recommend this spot to anyone!

Perfect for serious astronomy or just casual stargazing

by Chris M.

Check-in Date: 2015-10-13

Fantastic cabins, 10 miles from Fredricksburg, and very, very dark skies.

The cottages are close enough to town that it's a quick drive to get to restaurants, shopping, and vinyards, but far enough that the only sounds you'll hear are the crickets at night.

The skies are very dark. There is a small light dome to the south from town, but the skies to the north, east, and west are nearly black. The owners are very astronomy-friendly, and have kept the property dark. There is an open field about 20-30 yards from the northern cottage that you can reach by extension cord, and we suggested putting in a power post and decomposed granite to level the field and keep the grasses down. I set up right outside the cottage, and had dark skies and great seeing most of the nights.

If you are an astrophotographer looking for dark skies with an SO who's more into town life, this is a great place for both of you to get what you are looking for. We usually have to find places in the middle of nowhere, sleep in a tent or the back of the car, drag along big batteries or even generators to power our equipment, and either leave SO's at home or take uninterested ones grumbling along. This place has what you both want - dark skies, close proximity to town, and a warm, comfortable bed to crawl into when the sun comes up.

Gift of hospitality

by Abbey J.

Check-in Date: 2015-08-12

This place is perfect. Brand new, extremely well designed and constructed. It's 10 minutes from downtown but far enough away to be in the country. No road noise, on top of a hill with a consistent calm breeze and very comfortable. Most of all, Susan and husband are very hospitable. They thought of everything and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. There aren't very many pet friendly places out there. Thanks for an awesome weekend! Much recommended.

RUNNING HORSE COTTAGE

by Sharon W.

Check-in Date: 2015-08-06

VERY COMFORTABLE COTTAGE. WILL DEFINITELY RETURN. VERY CLOSE TO ENCHANTED ROCK, DOWNTOWN FREDERICKSBURG AND HILL TOP CAFE. WE LOVE BEING AWAY FROM BUSY DOWNTOWN BUT CLOSE ENOUGH TO DRIVE IN EASILY. MY ONLY SUGGESTION IS THAT THE OWNER CLEAR ABOUT 4-6 FEET OF NATURAL HABITAT OVERGROWTH FROM PERIMETER OF COTTAGE. OWNER WANTS TO KEEP AREA NATURAL BUT SHOULD CLEAR A MARGIN AROUND HOUSE, WALKWAY, PORCH AND PATIO. FOR FAMILIES WOULD RENT 2 COTTAGES OR ALL 3 COTTAGES. THE COTTAGES ARE CLUSTERED IN ONE AREA BUT NOT ON TOP OF EACH OTHER.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! This was our first wildflower season and we hated to cut the flowers down until they went to seed. Doing so will ensure an even more spectacular wildflower season next year!!

Check-in Date: 2015-06-02

My husband and I decided to take a long weekend trip and we are so happy that we found this great property! It was close enough to town (8-10 minutes) but far enough away from the overcrowded madness that can be on Main Street. The owner has thought about everything you would want in a property and more----from the high-end finishes throughout to the welcome cheese plate with crackers. There are even candles by the jetted tub! We will definitely be staying here the next time we come this way and I will be recommending this little slice of heaven to all of my friends!

Fantastic find!!

We just spent a 3 day weekend at this lovely property. The owner has thought about everything you would ever need and the finishes are top notch! We loved being close to town but not in the middle of all of the tourist madness on Main Street. This is a peaceful, comfortable place that feels like a luxury hotel. Looking forward to our next visit-----this is the only place we will ever stay in the future! !

Perfect Weekend!

Check-in Date: 2015-04-11

My wife, our 10 year old pup Chaco, and I spent Easter weekend in Fredericksburg and stayed in the Running Horse Cottage. It was perfect for us, with all the amenities we needed and more. The location is great, as it is on a lovely property, including a great patio to sit and watch the cattle across the fence. The bed was fantastic and the bath and shower were awesome, with plenty of hot water and soft fluffy towels. We had plenty of privacy, even with the two other cottages in the vicinity. Susan was very forthcoming with winery ideas, and even checked on us when Chaco went on an "adventure" alone and ended up over at her house. The cheese plate and stocked coffee bar was a very nice touch. We will definitely stay here again!

Charming Cottage with all the extras

by ashley s.

Check-in Date: 2014-11-09

What a lovely gem we stumbled upon on our recent trip to Fredericksburg! Cherry Mountain Cottages not only met our expectations, but fully exceeded them. Susan was a joy to work with and included all the little “extras” that make for a delightful and memorable stay. From the cheese tray and other goodies we were greeted with upon arrival, to the roll-away bed she ordered to accommodate the extra guest, Susan went the extra mile to ensure we were happy and comfortable.

The cottage itself, Running Horse, was beautifully done in all aspects, tastefully decorated to complement the rustic vibe, and offered fantastic outdoor furnishings to take in a stunning sunrise or sunset. Beds were cozy and comfortable, as well. Though I initially wanted to be directly downtown, I found the location to be peaceful and ideal; close enough to the action (8 minute drive to downtown), yet far enough way to feel removed from the daily grind. My mother enjoyed waking up with the sun, coffee in-hand, as she rocked on the porch to the sounds of the hill country.

As a discerning guest who has traveled extensively around the world, I would highly recommend these brand-new, charming cottages. Our mom-daughter getaway couldn't have been more perfect, thanks to Cherry Mountain!
