My wife and I celebrated our 13th anniversary in Fredericksberg, staying at Palo Alto Creek Farm, in The Barn. At the end of the day when you are ready to escape the crowds and hustle and bustle of tourists in town, it is more than worth the short trip out to the solitude and peace of the farm. Sit, relax...

It is with selfish hesitation that I write this review. I don't want to share my new great Hide Away. Great place to celebrate our 4th anniversary. Loved the porch! My wife didn't want to leave. Started and ended each day out there relaxing. Saw deer every evening. Good food is in the room. Just a few miles outside of... More

My husband and I stayed in the Barn. The pictures from their website were very accurate! We had a wonderful time. Breakfast was tasty, coffee was amazing, the property was lovely (we got to pet donkeys!), and the jacuzzi was nice. Palo Alto was a wonderful way to spend some quality time outside of the city.

This stay at the Barn was a revisit for our 30th wedding anniversary, and was still as peaceful and romantic as ever! The jacuzzi was still a favorite feature, and the morning coffee was wonderful, especially the grind-fresh flavored beans!

We stayed in the Log Cabin and were very happy. I loved sitting on the porch swing on the back porch with my coffee each morning.

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.

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
