Der Stall (The Barn) Bed and Breakfast is a replica of this German descendant's family barn in Reiffenburg, Germany. This modern Fredericksburg TX guesthouse was completely built by the innkeepers and two generations of the innkeeper's German descendents to include milling the floor boards from locally procured rough-cut pine.
The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with a robust log headboard and footboard cut from nearby cedar trees, and a romantic in-floor two-person Jacuzzi brand jetted bath.
You're invited to turn the intensity-controlled lighting down and let the warm bubbling water sooth your cares away. Climb the steep (did we mention the steps are steep?) wooden steps to the hayloft for two full-size beds with cedar log headboard and footboards and a commanding view down into the cozy living room.
The bathroom features a corner shower and a one-of-a-kind bucket sink on a circa 1930 Motorola console radio/record player. Water for the sink is supplied from a replica hand pump.
In the morning you may brew your own coffee from the in-room coffee service while you relax and wait for your innkeeper to deliver fresh-baked affenbrot and fruit. Affenbrot is a cinnamon and Texas pecan breakfast cake and a long-standing tradition of the innkeeper's family.
Enjoy seeing white-tailed deer walking around, feed the family ducks beside their pond, and sit in awe as the peacocks and peahens strut by your accommodations.
