Buckhorn Cabin


We arrived at Buckhorn Cabin in Fredericksburg, TX on a cold and rainy day... the perfect kind of day for cozying up in a cabin, actually, and I was fairly certain, upon stepping over the threshold, that I had died and gone to heaven. Matthew too. We took a little tour around the place, and he announced quite firmly that this was his favorite of the three bed and breakfasts we've stayed at in Fredericksburg so far, though personally, I don't know how I could ever choose between the three. All so uniquely wonderful.  (Last year, Amoroso Cottage. The year before that, Paradise Loft! We loved both).

But Buckhorn Cabin! In a word, fantastical. I made that up especially for this occasion.  Really, it was all kinds of wonderful, from THE most luxurious king sized bed (I must find and buy those sheets for our bed at home... how are they so soft?!), to the Keurig coffee maker (the likes of which I'd never experienced), to the copper sinks, to the jacuzzi hot tub out in the yard. This was my first time soaking in a hot tub on a truly cold night, complete with steam rising up around us as we sipped our red wine. It was an amazing experience.

Buckhorn Cabin was built in the 1790's in Kentucky and was transferred here where it was expanded upon and turned into the warm little B&B it is today.  I kept staring at the old wooden walls inside, wondering what they'd seen in their last 200 years. It's things like this that keep us going back to Fredericksburg. We love the history and the character, and really, after three getaways there, still feel we've barely scratched the surface of things to do!

I'll leave you with a little tour of the cabin. Hope you enjoy the peek inside...



A couple shots outside...




'Til next time, Buckhorn Cabin....


If you'd like more photos of the cabin or you'd like to book a Fredericksburg B&B, go here. They are the BEST!

  2. Looks so fun! I live in the Texas Hill Country and haven't been to Fredrickberg in the longest time. Maybe it's time for a quick day trip!

  15. Looks so enchanting! Now I'm going to be daydreaming about escaping the city and soaking in a hot tub with red wine. Sounds deviiiiiine.

  17. man oh man I am feeling cozy looking at these pictures! We have NEVER been to Freddys-burg... I know we suck. Here is a random question... we've also never stayed at a B&B type place. Are they dusty? Jon is REALLY allergic to dust and can't even stay at some people's houses because of all the dust. I would love to take him on a romantic getaway for his bday but it's tricky with his allergies

  18. Wow. That is just incredible! I've been to Fredricksburg many a moons ago but now I must go back!

    ReplyDelete
  19. YAY for Monogamy! The sexual preference....not the wine. Although, I'm sure it was good.

    And for some reason, Ruthie's comment about dust made me laugh. That was so funny.

  21. Do you get the whole cabin to yourself? Or is that other door for another rental?

    I love this cabin. We stayed in a 'cabin-esque' place in Carmel Valley and loved everything about it.

  22. You've got a good man with that matthew. In all my years in texas, I've never been able to talk a boy into going to Fredricksburg with me (I guess all the older women and craft-like stores turn them off? strange!) :)
    I have however, on many an occasion, hopped over to Luckenbach. Have y'all stopped there? If you want a real taste of texas, do it! It's close enough to austin that you can make it a day trip (but watch out... once there one beer magically becomes 17). Do it!

    1. Haha yes I guess I lucked out in this department, he really loves going there! Or so he says... hehe. We've driven through Luckenbach, I think, but never stopped. Thanks for the rec, we'll have to try it!

  30. I would have stolen the rug right out of the living room and then denied any inquiries about its whereabouts...
    such self control you have! :)

  31. This honestly doesn't even look real. Everything from the tin roof to the cozy accent pillows make me want to go to Fredericksburg!
