The industrial feel of galvanized pipes and cement floors are carefully balanced with a cozy living room and plush king size bed. The bathroom boasts a jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. The relaxing feel flows to the private outdoor courtyard with private hot tub, outdoor shower, television. You will make memories here that are unforgettable. Book today.

Great romantic getaway!

My wife and I stayed at the Pumphouse on our honeymoon to Fredericksburg and we loved it! The property delivered on everything in the listing from the decor to the amenities. First and foremost, this property was just minutes from the main strip of town, but is located on the edge of town. This allowed us to get into town quickly but feel like we were in the middle of nowhere with how quiet everything was around us. Of special note, the backyard oasis was the highlight of the stay with a hot tub, TV, fire pit, and outdoor shower making the backyard perfect for anytime of the year. Inside the furniture is comfortable and the space is very functional. The managers of this property have thought of everything. They had a binder of instructions, information, and local recommendations for activities. They had local coffee ready to brew. They had a bucket with black towels and umbrellas for unexpected rain or messes. Everything was awesome at this quiet property!

We stayed at the pumphouse for a weekend and it was great. Very clean, and everything was as expected. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Loved it

My husband and I spent our first anniversary at the pumphouse and we loved it! From the fireplace in the bedroom, the walk in shower and the hot tub in the private courtyard- it was perfect. And my husband said the bed was the most comfortable bed ever with all the fluffy blankets and pillows. We will definitely be back!

I rented The Pumphouse for some friends for a Spring Break getaway and wine tour of Fredricksburg. We wanted to get away from the craziness of the city for awhile, and it delivered! Loved the private patio and the quietness! Had a bit of difficulty with the tv in the living room area not working, and since it was a bit chilly, trying to program the heat to go on was a bit difficult. Other than those minor details, we had a great stay! We will be back!!

Hi Stefanie. Thanks for staying with us in the Pumphouse. It sounds like you made some special memories. We aim for perfection. Sorry about the TV not working and the challenge with the Nest thermostat. We are always available for assistance during your stay to help address these issues. I'm going to send you a partial refund because your stay was less than perfect. Hope you can return again soon.

Christmas getaway

The Pumphouse was perfection for our annual holiday runaway to FBG! Quaint, charming, well appointed and very clean...we absolutley loved relaxing in front of the fireplace, in the hot tub and around the firepit in the evening. The walk-in shower and jetted tub were also great places to escape to. Peaceful country side setting and modern amenties can't be beat. The Christmas tree and holiday decor was icing on the cake...can't wait to be back in this wonderful retreat!

My wife and I celebrated our 42 wedding anniversary at the Pumphouse at the The Gathering Guesthouse. It was our fist visit and we couldn't have been more pleased and surprised with these amazing vacation rentals. As we drove up, it reminded us of a small Disney village. The several small units share a beautiful landscaped courtyard. However, each cottage also has it's own private courtyard. Even though each cottage has a rustic country feel, the amenities are all modern and comparable to a luxury resort. We can't wait to visit again and stay at another cottage since they are all unique.

Great Stay at the Pump House

My wife and I celebrated our 7th anniversary at the Pumphouse, and our stay was exceptional. The location is fantastic, just outside of town (only by 3 minutes), nice quiet area, and great local wildlife...there were many deer hanging out nearby. The Pumphouse was exactly what we needed, plenty of room, comfortable setting, and great patio outdoor with the hammock and hot tub. I highly recommend a stay here, and look forward to visiting again!

Peace in the Pumphouse

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at The Pumphouse. It is difficult for the pictures to capture the sense of what it is like. There are five different places to stay that all surround a central courtyard. The Pumphouse is a linear layout with a concrete floor and a rustic feel. The entry room is the old pumphouse, and has a sofa with small tables and a television. The next room is an eat-in kitchen with a window at the table. The next room is the bedroom, with the large king size bed and a television there as well. From there you can enter into the bathroom (also quite spacious), or the backyard, which is perhaps the greatest asset of the property. We found this was perfectly suited for two people who want to enjoy time together in peace and quiet. That being said, if you like people, you will run into others who are staying in the Gathering facilities as well. We found these interactions could be as brief or deep as we wanted to invest time in. The location of The Pumphouse is perfect. Very close to everything, and yet just far enough away to feel peaceful and enjoy the quiet of being away from things that feel touristy. I'm a very picky traveler, but I commend The Pumphouse unreservedly. Book it, you won't regret it.
