This historic home was built on this property in 1848 and was one of the first homes built in the budding town of Fredericksburg by the Kneese family that had recently immigrated from Germany.  The main living area maintains the rustic charm of the wood and plaster walls that have withstood the test of 175 years. An early meeting place of the Methodist Church, the home has seen several additions and hosted many notables over the years of use. This is more than just a place to stay, it is immersing yourself in the history of Fredericksburg and the pioneers who settled this land. 

Pioneer Haus now features a full kitchen with a functioning vintage reproduction stove with six burners and an oven. A well worn cast metal sink serves current occupants as it did many generations before. Enjoy a meal in the dining room hewn from native Stonewall limestone rock which stays naturally cool in hot Texas summers. Modern amenities also complement the kitchen including a microwave, a toaster, an ice maker and a coffee maker. 

The home accommodates 7 people with a large master room featuring a king size bed, another bedroom with a queen size bed,  and a third bedroom with both a queen size bed and a single bed. The master bathroom has a large walk-in shower and the second bathroom has a tub/shower combination.  The home is decorated with period antiques while providing all the comforts of modern life. Wi-fi, cable and streaming TV are provided inside while the outdoor firepit and grill allow for enjoying the private yard space.  The property is directly across the street from the Gillespie County Historical Society and the Pioneer Museum. It is also diagonally across the street from St. Mary's Catholic Church making it very convenient for anyone attending events at either of these popular destinations. The location is very walkable to all of Main Street with a myriad of restaurants, shops and event venues. No need to find parking on busy Main Street, you can park your car and easily walk to most attractions.

With long ties to Fredericksburg, Texas, the owner of this property is the Great-great grandchild of one of the early settlers of this historic town. Having sailed on the "Element" from Germany, he became one of the first school teachers while also making a living as a wine maker, inventor, furniture maker, composer and music teacher. Jacob Brodbeck was a true pioneer in many aspects.
