The Judy. A modern luxury one- bedroom guesthouse with a private hot tub and fireplace in the wine country 12 miles from Main St. Fbg. Come stay with us and enjoy the best of the Fredericksburg Wine Country. The completely remodeled and brand-new Judy offers all the finest best in amenities—including a full kitchen and an oversize jet tub— in the heart of the Fredericksburg wine country and is walking distance from both Hilmy Cellars and Fat Ass Ranch & Winery. The private courtyard boasts an outdoor fire pit, a hot tub, an outdoor shower, and an outdoor TV. The courtyard is completely private and only for the renters of this beautiful guesthouse.

The Judy is part of a duplex and, when available, larger parties have the option to rent out both adjoining units (The Judy and The Melvin) simultaneously. The Judy is located on approximately 30 acres of farmland within Behrends Family Homestead. 

Disclaimer:  The Melvin is located in close proximity to Hwy 290 and does present some noise issues when inside the unit. Great efforts have been taken to mitigate the noise; however, some light sleepers might not find this their best option. A sound machine and floor fan has been provided. The Cora, located in the back of the same property, also sleeps 2 and is a very quiet option.

The place overall was the cutest.

This house was very nice. Small, but good for 1-3 people depending on how comfortable you are with one another. The hot tub out back has a TV with cable, so very nice and relaxing. The bed was very comfortable also. The place overall was the cutest.

Best Experience... Ever

It was nothing short of amazing. Right when we walked in everything was perfectly set up to start our weekend off right! From the cool temperature to save us from the heat, to the music playing and some lights already turned on. It was truly a welcoming experience and we 100% plan on going back.

Fredericksburg Vacation

We really enjoyed our stay. The place was beautiful and everything was clean. We loved the place. It did seem that it was set up for a weekend stay. We stayed 4 nights, 5 days. It would of been better if they would provide more towels for those that stay longer 2 each was stretching it a bit. One other suggestion would be to supply a broom to keep the grit from the outside from getting on the floors, It was raining from time to time during our stay so the mat at the back door was too wet to keep us from tracking in. All in all it was an awesome place to stay. Thank you

Thanks for staying with us. The Judy is a special place and glad you loved it. We are available for our guest's needs and next time please, please let us know. We would have been glad to swap out your towels for you. Since your stay, we have introduced "Rainy Day Baskets" with umbrella and black towels for those rainy day messes. Thanks again and hope you can return soon.

Great place to stay

The Judy was amazing! Was quiet and cozy. The location is great just a few miles outside of Fredericksburg and in the middle of wine country. Would definitely recommend to others.

Thanks so much for staying with us. We are so glad you enjoyed The Judy. I hope you can return again soon.

Family Getaway

Fredericksburg is such a nice getaway and retreat from Austin or San Antonio and the Gathering Guesthouses are such a perfect place to stay. We loved the location - with tasting rooms literally right next door and more and more on the short drive to town. But even better were how nicely done and relaxing the actual accommodations were. We stayed in the Judy, very comfortably, with our 2 kids. They loved the big bubble bath and jacuzzi on the patio. We cooked in (kitchen was equipped with everything we needed), enjoyed the fireplace inside AND fire pit outside while star and moon gazing. We also slept great in the bed, and you can tell there was a lot of thought and consideration put into the linens, decor, and ambiance in general. One thing we really loved as well, is how many guest houses / units are on the property. Can easily see how us returning with multiple friends and families for a fun weekend away. Can’t wait to return!

Mini Getaway

The Judy was a perfect place to spend the weekend. Brenda thought of all the details and luxuries from the fluffy robes to the full kitchen. We felt right at home. We spent the morning sitting by the fire with our coffee and looking out over the field across the street. So peaceful and restful and easy to get into town when we wanted a quick dinner. Thank you.
