Pioneer Haus *NEW* Historic House One block from Main Street with hot tub and firepit
Size –3 Bedrooms • 2 Bathrooms 2 Baths • Sleeps 1-7
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.
It 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 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 Museum and 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
