We hope you are making plans to be our guest at Absolute Charm Luxury Bed & Breakfasts where our aim is to give you that perfect Texas Hill Country getaway you are seeking. Whether you are interested in spending the weekend with us or taking a longer vacation, we know the charm of Fredericksburg, Texas will captivate you. Please acquaint yourself with our Policies below. We look forward to having you as our guest!
Check in is at 709 West Main Street, which is a beautiful historic rock building right on Main Street on the west end of town. The sign in the yard says both "Tea Rose Quilts and Gifts" and "Bed and Breakfast Reservations". Look for the five king sized quilts prominently displayed in the yard; you can't miss us! Just park in front and come on in!
If arriving after 6:00 p.m. (or 5:00 p.m. on Sunday), you will find a box on the front porch containing an envelope with your name, map, receipt and keys to your suite/cottage. We look forward to seeing you soon!
For your protection and ours, we ask that ALL cancellations be made in writing. Simply respond to this confirmation and request your reservation to be cancelled. Your cancellation request will be handled in one of the two following ways:
We will email you a Cancellation Notice for your records once your request has been processed.
Pampering Packages or Massages must be cancelled at least 48 hours in advance or you will be charged the full amount. Please help us respect our vendors by giving ample notice should you need to cancel.
We are often asked if we offer discounts for groups who book all of one property. We do not offer such discounts, and in fact, we are sad to say we have had a lot of problems with groups in the past. More times than not, when groups have rented the entire Inn on the Creek, Queen Anne, etc., guests have actually taken food from our chef's refrigerator that was intended for the next morning's breakfast and have said, "Sorry, we raided the fridge last night; but we wanted a snack!" or "We looked around and found your candy stash and ate it all!" Groups almost always drink heavily and leave liquor bottles all over the property leaving our housekeeping team with double or triple the normal housekeeping load. It may seem that renting the entire building is "doing us a favor," but we almost never have a vacancy on a weekend and would have rented each room regardless. Accordingly, we expect groups to behave as individual guests do. We welcome respectful groups but are not looking to book these fine propeties to partiers. Please feel free to enjoy the full use of the facilities, enjoy the hot tubs, play cards in the common areas, etc. However, we ask that you treat these historic properties, not to mention our wonderful chefs, with the respect they deserve. If items are taken from the refrigerator, furniture moved throughout the property, excessive trash left around the premises, etc. a minimum charge of $50.00 per room will be charged to each member of the group's credit card. If items are broken or otherwise destroyed, the charge will be more than $50.00.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Money Orders, Cash and Absolute Charm Gift Certificates purchased from Absolute Charm. You will be required to hold your reservations with a credit card deposit. Your credit card will be charged upon check-in. If you are arriving after 5:00 p.m. (4:00 on Sundays) your card will be charged the balance and your receipt placed in your envelope with your map and key.
Your payment and personal informatino is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.
The State of Texas and City of Fredericksburg impose 13% lodging tax on every stay. In addition, Absolute Charm charges and retains a 3% fee in exchange for the services we provide in facilitating your transaction. There is no additional fee for booking your reservation by phone versus booking online.
Will be provided at each property in accordance with what is listed on that property's page. Please check the property's page for information on the breakfast you will receive.
Moving from room to room for purposes of determining the length of your stay. For example, if you stay one night in one room and then move to another room that does not qualify as a two-night stay for purposes of receiving a weekday discount. As you can imagine, housekeeping costs skyrocket when rooms have to be completely cleaned from scratch daily. If you would like to move rooms during the week, you may do so but will NOT receive the weekday special price. If you choose to move rooms on a weekend due to your preference, you may only do so with a $35.00 per move fee to cover additional housekeeping costs.
Please remember check in takes place at the Absolute Charm office located at 709 W. Main St, Fredericksburg, Texas 78624.
You will be given a map and keys to this property along with breakfast certificates (if applicable).
