Deer!

by Wendy M.

Check-in Date: 2023-05-01

Loved sitting on the front porch in the early morning. Even had a deer walk by while sitting out there. Loved the swing with the view of the river. The cottage was very clean.

The Paintbrush house was perfect. Had all the amenities we needed. Beautiful property, beautiful view. Will definitely return with my fishing pole and kayak.
 

Very clean.

by Jane B.

Check-in Date: 2022-12-16

The place was very clean and smelled new. It is a ways out of town but that is what we wanted. Still just a short drive to Fredricksburg. It was a chilly weekend for us but we did walk down to the river. They have it fixed up real nice with a walkway and seating. I recommend this place definitely.

Paintbrush cabin was so comfortable. We enjoyed our family gathering to celebrate a family members birthday. The property is lovely and seeing the animals was a treat, especially for our great nephew. Easy drive into Fredericksburg for shopping and meals. Highly recommend staying at River's Edge Cottage.

Relaxing

by Jordan M.

Check-in Date: 2022-04-17

The River's Edge property is a beautiful and relaxing destination to get out of the city and enjoy the peacefulness of the Hill Country. I stayed one night at the Paintbrush, which is the 1BR cabin closest to the water's edge. The directions to the property and to enter the house were easy to follow and I was able to park and enter the home as soon as I arrived. I found the house itself to be perfectly clean and very organized. There was a house "user-guide" binder on the coffee table when I arrived. The front porch is what I loved most about this house- it was spacious and comfortable and clean with chairs and a view of mesquite trees full of hummingbirds that lead down to the waters edge, which is about a 30 second walk from the house. A hammock was hanging to the right of the porch for more lounging. The A/C worked great and there are lots of windows around the house so you can still enjoy the great views even while cooling off inside. There is a window in the shower that is about eye-shoulder level which is great during the day, but in the evening it is a direct view into the shower. I felt uncomfortable to take a shower in there at night since the neighbors from the cabin behind me walked past that side of the house to get down to the river. With a reflective/privacy window tinting added, it could be much more comfortable for guests. The kitchen is fully stocked with wine glasses, cups, plates, basic cook-wear and salt & pepper. Bring your own tea or coffee & creamer to enjoy on the porch or down by the river in the morning- there is a keurig-style coffee machine. The check out guide requests that guests bring their own trash to the dumpster after their stay. While I understand wanting to remove the trash from the home immediately, for the price per night I don't think this should be a responsibility of guests. If you can afford it, I'd recommend staying for more than one night as the property and home itself are beautiful and offer a lot to explore and enjoy. With a strict check in time of 4pm and check out at 10am, I would have loved to have more time to enjoy this rental.
