“Beautiful setting, nice price”
Reviewed 21 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Located a short distance from wine country in one direction and Main Street in the other, you're conveniently located to everything Fredericksburg has to offer. (And Fredericksburg has a lot to offer!)

The "Small" Lone Star Guest House is, of course, "Small." It's slightly more spacious than a normal motel room, but gives you the feel of home. It has a really large bathroom and a bedroom/sitting room combination that feels just like home. It's priced competitively with motel spaces of similar size, but you're living on a beautiful, hill country ranch.

Of course, if you're looking for a luxury hotel experience and don't intend to leave the property, this might not be the place for you. There are no spas, massage therapists or pedicures. Nor is there a high-dollar coffee shop, restaurant or souvenir shop. Those all have names like Marriott, or Hilton!

We enjoy the opportunity to see what it's like to actually live in the community we're visiting. Lone Star Guest House puts us on a ranch, close to town with the ability to live like a local for a few days. The owners are wonderful people who live on the property and have made the hill country experience a reality for us.

Whether you're considering the Large or the Small Guest House, be sure to book early. Fredericksburg is a favorite destination for all ages and this property is sure to be a favored place to stay!

“Average stay, parking hassle”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The stay at this Small Suite in Gastehaus Schmidt was a result of a last-minute decision to visit Fredericksburg; which means that it was literally our last choice.

The suite itself is located in the backyard of the owner's house, and acess to the suite is fairly straight forward. The grounds are well-kept and the suite & bathroom were clean and ready upon our arrival. The layout of it is very weird, with the bathroom being as big as the bedroom. Only problem with that was that the bedroom was crammed with little tables and other furniture despite being small. The bathroom on the other hand was a waste of space. Amenities are minimal: some coffee packets, a couple waters, tiny coffeemaker.

The mattress on the bed was pretty hard and two nights in a row I woke up with a headache. Coincidence? Maybe. A warning to other guests: getting to this location requires driving over the Pedernales River, crossing a bridge that has no guard rails on either side and sits right on a tight curve on the inclined road. I can't imagine driving over this bridge while it's raining or under freezing conditions. I can't imagine how TXDoT would allow such a hazardous bridge in that condition.

Another point of contention is that the parking for "guests" is not explained clearly. We parked on the concrete end of the driveway but were harassed twice by the so-called host that we were parking in "private property". It turns out we only get to park over the gravel areas next to the concrete. The second time the "host" actually knocked on our door to move the car at night, claiming that he was expecting family. 24 hrs later and no one arrived.

Only positive thing about this place is that they accept pets, and that's the only reason it gets 2 stars.

Dear Mr. Tomasovich,

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stay at Lone Star Guest Haus- Small Suite. We sincerely apologize for the fact that you and your guest had such an unfortunate stay.

We're sorry to hear that you found the bedroom to be too cramped due to an abundance of tables and furniture and that the mattress proved to be so hard that if might have caused you to have headaches both nights. Removing a few items from the bedroom in order to make it more accommodating is an easy fix that I'm sure the owners will consider along with replacing the mattress. In addition, we apologize that the parking situation was not defined well enough. We have updated our information sheet, that we provide to each guest, with instructions to only park in the gravel drive, not the concrete. Also, we have rewritten the instructions defining how to get to the parking area itself. Finally, we're sorry that you found the route to this property to be potentially dangerous in inclement weather. Fortunately, we've never had a guest report any issues getting to the property in bad weather but we do understand how you could view it as precarious.

Keeping all of the above in mind, we are glad to hear that you found the property to be clean, the grounds well-kept, and enjoyed the benefit of being able to bring your pet.

We want you to know that we have passed along your comments to the Stollenwercks, as they are always anxious to receive feedback from guests and look for areas to improve.

Thank you again for your review and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Regards,

Nathan
