Moonrise Retreat is a beautiful cabin that looks out over Palo Alto Creek Valley.

We loved our recent stay at Moonrise Retreat. The pictures do not really do the place justice. The guest house is clean, the linens fresh, the upstairs bedrooms are large and airy, the downstairs bedroom is cozy and beautiful and Laurie was so helpful and thoughtful. The kitchen was well stocked with breakfast foods and everything we needed for our...

The owners were wonderful. Fresh eggs from the chickens on the small farm, horses, cows were 1st things to see when waking in the A.M. My dog loved being able to run around and play with the owner's dog, Gracie. This was a girl's weekend getaway and was relaxing but yet close enough to get to Fredericksburg quickly. Great stay!

Management response:

It was so wonderful to have you and your friends and Grace stay at Moonrise Retreat for your birthday celebration. You were the perfect guests and it makes us very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay. Please come back to stay with us very soon! Have a great year!

We stayed 4 nights. The kitchen was well stocked for breakfast. Morning sunrises and evening star gazing on the upper deck was spectacular. We welcomed evening breezes off the pastures with the sweet smell of hay. Only 8 minutes to Downtown Fredericksburg. The farm animals were a delight, never a nuisance: two cattle, two horses and a pony, two sheep,...

Management response:

Many thanks for the kind review. Moonrise Retreat is a special place that has beautiful views and breezes for a quiet getaway that is only minutes from Main Street. Please come back soon!
