Anniversary weekend

Very cozy place! My husband found this place all last minute, and we loved it! We spent our 2 year anniversary here and enjoyed every minute of it. Very close to the wineries so it’s so convenient! I’ve told my friends about this place so hopefully they’ll love it too! This was our first time here but it won’t be our last.

This place was beyond amazing!

This place was beyond amazing. The amenities were perfect for a couple to getaway and forget about work and life for just awhile. Looking at the sky full of stars from the hot tub was perfect, and we hope to come back soon! It was great.

Relaxing stay!

We loved our stay at the Cora on our first trip to Fredericksburg! We especially enjoyed evenings outdoors roasting smores in the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub. When it was too cold out, it was nice to cozy up by the fireplace inside! The bed was also very comfortable, and the sheets are probably the softest sheets I've ever slept on! Thank you for a fantastic stay!

Cozy, clean, romantic getaway

Loved this cozy cottage! Such well thought-out amenities -plush linens and towels, comfy blankets, comfy bed, hot tub, fire pit, outdoor shower, great coffee, beautiful scenery out the open end of the patio area which can be viewed from hot tub, sofa, and bed. The shower inside features a rain head and a regular shower head. There is a beautiful jetted stand alone tub inside as well. The decor is beautiful. The hot tub, outdoor shower area is nicely done and private. Management was very responsive and accommodating! Nice being so close to the Hwy 290 wineries. Can get lunch at local wineries, dinner at Alstadt, but recommend bringing something for breakfast. However, it’s not a far drive into Fredericksburg for meals. Will be back!

Great Anniversary

We had a great time celebrating our 17 year anniversary. Pictures do not do it justice, it is amazing. The views outback were awesome. Will stay here again!!

Perfect Fredericksburg Getaway

Perfect getaway for locals but not too far from town for tourists! I stayed at this spot with a few of my girlfriends and we enjoyed the exact pampered escape we were looking for. The cabin is beautifully decorated but maintains a comfort that makes it easy to feel right at home. The historical property is slightly remote, but that allows for an immersion into the actual hill country with a beautiful open field as your view from the couch or hot tub. They've gone the extra step to give this space high quality amenities like the hot tub, furniture, and an amazing inside bath and shower. The bed is also super comfy. It is smack dab in the middle of wine country but a short drive into town. The hosts responded immediately to any questions we had and were extremely sweet and accommodating. Definitely recommend a getaway stay here, whether with a friend, partner, or as a spot for some "me time"!

Friends Weekend

What a charming and relaxing stay! The apartment (unit) was so welcoming and beautiful with no detail overlooked. The jacuzzi bathtub and outdoor hot tub were both fabulous highlights. It was the perfect place to enjoy a spectacular Fredericksburg sunset after a day of food, friends and exploring.

Little Getaway time

I stayed at The Cora and I absolutely loved it. It was beautiful, unique, fresh and with an open concept. There's a cozy little fireplace, a great tub and large shower. The courtyard was perfect to view the stars out into the back field while enjoying the hot tub - there's even a tv to watch in the hot tub. It's right near a variety of wineries, but we chose to stay in. Just really enjoyed it very much - did not disappoint! Would definitely come again. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at such a pretty place.
