Wow!!! This seriously was the best getaway I've ever had. This home is cozy, beautiful and so much fun! They literally thought of everything. S'mores kits, Hot chocolate, marshmallows, outdoor blankets to use while sitting at the fire pit, tons of wood logs to burn in the fire place, puzzles and riddles to find prizes hidden around the house, board games and a huge selection of movies to pick from. This home is like a mini museum, so much to read and learn from. You seriously can't get bored here! The owners made sure of that! It's very secluded and private. We loved hearing and seeing the cattle while on our family walks around the outskirts of the property. The stars were absolutely breathtaking at night. They provided a telescope to use if you'd like. You can clearly see all the effort that they put into making this home a unique experience. Thank you for sharing this little piece of your life with us and for honoring all those who have served our country. We definitely will be back!

The stars were amazing and that’s just the icing on the cake of this beautiful property. We loved everything about the house, the view and the location. The escape from the hot cement of Houston was much needed with my Colombian in-laws in tow. The cool mornings filled with bird song made the heat of the afternoon totally bearable. Don’t forget to take a midnight dip in the jacuzzi and get lost in the stars of the milky way.

The Outpost is a beautiful cabin with tributes to our Military men, women, and canines as well as first responders.
Both bedrooms are decorated uniquely. The beds are made with lovely bedding. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean. And the walk-shower is a dream.
The kitchen has everything one could need. Loved the ice maker. We did not use the barbecue grill or the fire pit but they are there.
Fredericksburg is nearby and we do go to The Old German Bakery which is a must. But, the cabin has so much charm and there many good books.
The night sky is velvety black and we enjoyed our star gazing.
Molly, our Schnauzer, felt so welcome. Treats, blankets, and plenty of places to walk.
This is an exceptional getaway. And, the cabin has secrets! You just have to find them!

The Outpost was a perfect vacation getaway for our family this year. It has great views, very clean, and everything is marked in the house so you know what switch went with what. We were greeted in the morning and evening by cows and deers. The location was close to the Enchanted Rock and downtown with lots to do in the house for our teenagers. We will definitely rent The Outpost in the cooler months to enjoy the firepit and hot tub more.

The view was amazing, and we’ve never stayed anywhere with more amenities. The cabin is stocked with things you might need, unlike any other rental on the market. There are a ton of games and riddles to play which kept us entertained! There’s a great view from the hottub and back porch. It’s decorated beautifully and with SO much history. We felt completely away from the hustle and bustle of the world. It’s about 15-20 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg.. which is close enough to pop into town but also far enough for a real escape. Thank you, can’t wait to come back!

The property is fabulous! Top of the line everything from appliances to kitchen gadgets. If you are a military enthusiast or back the blue this is the place for you since the cabin is dedicated to this. The views from the back portico are awesome! It is very secluded and about 10 + minutes from Mainstreet but so worth the short drive. So much scenery to be seen in that short drive. We saw lot's of deer on the property which was great since my hubby is an outdoor enthusiast. 5 STARS!

We came to ring in the new year at The Outpost, and everything was so perfect for our family of 4! From games, board and Wii, to the hot tub and the cache clues, my kids couldn’t get enough. As a mom, I really appreciated the fantastic comfort of the beds, the well-stocked kitchen and the views and surrounding areas were beautiful. We were close enough to Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock to make getting to activities easy, but a little bit off the beaten path to be able to completely relax. My kids are already asking to come back! The owners were fantastic with communication too.

Our favorite house yet!

December 2022

Overall

We’ve been coming to Fredericksburg at Christmas for 17 years and this year’s stay at The Outpost might just be our favorite house yet. Besides the house having everything you’d need, the small extra touches are what made it for us. A Christmas hot chocolate set up, movie snacks, prepared s’mores baggies for the fire pit, hidden “Easter eggs” and a secret room, our kids favorite were the hidden stuffed fabric mice, bottled water chilling in the fridge and a stocked wine fridge with a kind note from the owners saying to enjoy a bottle on them, the list goes on. And the yard with the fire pit and hot tub and awesome view! It was so peaceful. The owners have also taken such great care to honor the men and women in the armed forces and have some incredibly amazing historical artifacts in the home and a binder they composed with history on them all. The revolutionary and civil war cannonballs in the fireplace were our favorite. We loved exploring the property and can’t wait to see all their plans for the acreage come to fruition!

This is our second stay during 2022 at this awesome cabin. We have stayed at probably about 20 or 25 air B&Bs in the last few years, mostly in the Texas hill country. A lot of them are very nice, but this might be our very favorite, this was our second trip during 2022 at the outpost, and we’ve already planned another trip for December.If you notice all the positive reviews about this Airbnb you’ll understand you probably need to book somewhat well in advance, because I predict it’s only going to become more popular.The positives include you’re on 15 acres of land, and the cabin is the only man-made residential type place on the whole piece of land, so it’s incredibly private. It has incredible views and unbelievable sunsets. It also has all the creature comfort you would want inside with streaming TV and a great kitchen with all the stuff you would ever want to cook with; they have a grill outside, they have a great hot tub to sit in at night and watch the stars, and when it’s not so hot they have a really great fire pit.There’s lots of great things I could point out, and this may seem very insignificant, but I wanted to point out that this is the first Airbnb I’ve ever stayed at thad an ice cream scooper… Laugh if you want, but when you need an ice cream scooper, you need an ice cream scooper.But seriously, I think that highlights that they literally provide everything you would want for your stay; all you have to do is go by the grocery store in Fredericksburg if you want to cook while you’re there, and then just enjoy.It’s only about 25 minutes down to Fredericksburg but better yet, if you are a fan of nature it’s only about a 20 minute drive to enchanted rock. You do need reservations for enchanted rock, but it saves you a long drive to get to the park.I don’t have anything negative to say, it’s just awesome all around and that’s why we will end up taking three trips out there just during 2022.

Rent this place!

Perfect weekend getaway with my Mom and sister. This house is by far the best vacation home we’ve ever stayed in. It’s so peaceful, quaint and private you will never want to leave. The surroundings are breathtaking and the outdoor space is amazing. This unique one of a kind property so beautifully pays tribute to everyone who has served our country. You will enjoy all of the different artifacts and memorabilia in the home. This home provides all of the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay and It’s only 20 minutes away from Main Street in Fredericksburg. So worth the drive! House was spotless and communication with hosts was quick and easy.

Can't wait to return!

Fredericksburg was meant to be a quick, and close stay for us to visit the Enchanted rock on our trip. Instead, our trip was enchanced ten fold because of this airbnb. The host was super responsive, via text. They anticipated and maximized their space to provide a large variety of activities for their guests. I highly recommend a visit. If you love history and true stories...staying here is exactly like living at a museum. Tons of close up antiques. Tons of cute touches to make this place super cozy. I couldn't be more grateful for such an incredible experience.

This place checked all the boxes! We were able to get away without being too far away. The back porch was perfect for morning coffee and watching the sun go down. The hot tub was in the perfect spot to enjoy the fire at night and the lightning storms across the way. During the day when it was too hot to go outside, the riddles and secret rooms kept us busy.The owners put so much detail into this spot! From towel placement to a pooper scooper for the pup being available, I can't imagine it being better! There was so much history wrapped up into every thought out detail and riddle, being impressed is an understatement.We will be back!

Fantastic location!

The location is fantastic. We felt a world away from hustle and bustle. Took a trip into town once but the house has everything you could ever need. The hot tub and view was great, not to mention the breeze all through the day. Made this Texas heat bearable. This home is thoughtful and we will be back. Our dogs also loved the adventure down to the little creek and laying in the nice cool grass!

Awesome house in a great location!

Having stayed in many vacation rentals in the hill country over the years, this one is without a doubt the best. The house is in a great location, not too close to town and not too far. The privacy and views are some of the best features of this property. This home is clean and spacious. The owners and property management company are always just a call or text away, but everything is so great we never needed either of them.The owners of this home have gone out of their way to honor our military and first responders with this home. If you fall in either of those categories or love history, this is the place for you. The owners have also made sure that anyone visiting this home will never be bored.If you’ve looked at this home, don’t bother to continue looking. Book it!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The memorabilia, the big Texas feel, and the views are truly magical. We enjoyed those FTX sunsets from the hot tub every night after our day of wine tasting and shopping. This place is absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway in Fredericksburg…who wouldn’t want to stay in at Historical Marker!! Thank you for preserving and displaying so many things that matter most - we loved it!!!

Lucky to stay here!

I think this is a fairly new listing on Airbnb, and we feel lucky to have discovered it so soon. Basically, this is just about the perfect Airbnb for what we like. We have been staying for years in airbnbs in the Hill Country, several times a year. This may be our favorite one yet.It sits on 15 private acres, so no one else is there when you stay there, the owners don’t have another house there, and there aren’t any other cabins. It felt like home right away instead of being someone’s guest.The surrounding land is beautiful, the sunsets are unbelievable, the hot tub is great, and there’s virtually no light pollution so you can see a black sky filled with countless stars at night.The cabin has a great history, but has been updated smartly to preserve its historic past while providing for all the creature comforts you could want.The A/C was strong, plenty of hot water for showers (not always the case in remote locations), it has everything you could want to cook, they have a tv to stream - but you’ll want to be outside most of the time because of its beautiful surroundings.And you’re only 11 minutes from Enchanted Rock and about 20 minutes from Fredericksburg.We loved it so much we’ve already booked it again for a much longer stay later this summer. This Airbnb will likely become very popular as more people discover it, it’s just awesome.

Best vacation home!

The house was far enough away to feel secluded, but a close drive into town. The house had everything we needed. So much thought and love in every detail. My daughter loved all of the stories and history. We would for sure book this house again!!!
