Cabin Holiday Rental
Nestled in the hills just outside Fredericksburg alongside the year round flowing Palo Alto Creek, is a wonderful pioneer farmstead. Palo Alto Creek Farm retains all of its original buildings, providing a visual timeline from when this farmstead was first settled in 1854 by German immigrant Peter Itz and his family, until the present day. The Log Cabin, circa 1854, is the first structure that was built on this historic homestead. A stay in The Log Cabin, where the Itz family raised eight children, lets you reflect on the character of the pioneers while enjoying all of today’s luxury amenities in a charming cottage. Enjoy a romantic evening in front of the fieldstone fireplace, a focal point of the living room. Set the mood with special music, or a nostalgic movie.

Palo Alto Creek Farm retains all of its original buildings, providing a visual timeline from when this farmstead was first settled in 1854 by German immigrant Peter Itz and his family, until the present day. The Log Cabin, circa 1854, is the first structure that was built on this historic homestead. A stay in The Log Cabin, where the Itz family raised eight children, lets you reflect on the character of the pioneers while enjoying all of today’s luxury amenities in a charming cottage. Enjoy a romantic evening in front of the fieldstone fireplace, a focal point of the living room. Set the mood with special music, or a nostalgic movie. The TV, DVD and stereo are hidden in an antique jelly cupboard. The bathroom provides the absolute ultimate romantic bathing experience. The look of old limestone and plaster walls, a natural limestone floor, and a cedar ceiling supported by ancient juniper beams provide the perfect setting for the whirlpool tub for two tucked into the corner. In the opposite corner, your eye is delighted by a small kiva fireplace to warm your bath on chilly evenings. The French doors in the bedroom let fresh Hill Country breezes and the songs of Mother Nature lull you to sleep in the king-size bed dressed in beautiful linens. In the morning, step through the French doors to the secluded back porch. Relax in the swing and enjoy a breath-taking view of Palo Alto Creek while enjoying your morning coffee. While staying at Palo Alto Creek Farm enjoy the abundant wildlife. Early in the morning, wild turkey have been known to meander up the creek, and there is a never ending display of bird activity and song. And, if you want a real soul-expanding experience, go outside at night and look up! The stars are incredible. Guests especially enjoy sitting under an 800 year old Live Oak to watch the deer that come in each evening. Guests are free to roam the acreage. The surrounding country roads are ideal for walking, running, hiking or biking. Maybe you saw Palo Alto in one or more of the following publications: Log Home Living featured The Log Cabin; Country Accents featured The Barn; Texas Journey featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as one of the Five Great Romantic Getaways.; National Geographic Traveler featured The Barn; Texas Monthly featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as one of 25 favorite things that make Texas delightfully different, D Magazine and The Dallas Morning News have featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as a romantic getaway, Southern Accents pictured The Itz House, Kerrville Daily Times featured Palo Alto Creek Farm in “Remembering Romance”, Ranch & Rural Living and Hill Country Magazine both featured Palo Alto Creek Farm as a well preserved pioneer farmstead.
