    Amoroso Cottage

    Vintage done right. These words spring to mind as you walk into the exquisitely detailed Amoroso Cottage in the famed historic district where you can find this exquisite property one of our favorite Fredericksburg, TX cabins and cottages. This private cottage offers sophisticated style, elegance, comfort, and luxury just one block from the west end of Main Street and just a few blocks from shopping. The Italian musical term "amoroso" literally means "loving", and what more perfect sentiment could one look for in a bed and breakfast? Amoroso Cottage is the perfect place to relax, unwind, reconnect, and maybe rekindle some of the loving feelings you've experienced before.

    The cottage offers all the comforts of home as well. Downstairs you will enjoy a sprawling front porch, just perfect for rocking. Inside find a comfortable den with a rock fireplace (Gas) as well as a large flat screen TV with extended cable selections. The den opens onto a beautifully designed full kitchen and dining space. This is the perfect place to prepare an intimate dinner for two, a hearty Thanksgiving feast, or just sit around the table playing cards and sipping wine.

    Downstairs you will find a spacious bedroom with king size bed and luxurious old world linens. Adjacent is the bathroom with its original claw foot tub with shower and a vanity crafted from an antique dresser. Up a graceful flight of stairs (reputed to be salvaged from the old local convent) are two additional bedrooms, one with a charming queen bed and the other with a king bed and a powder bath to share. Downstairs off the kitchen you will find a very convenient second bathroom with a shower.

    Outside you are sure to enjoy the fabulous outdoor stone fireplace and patio (Gas). The cottage is surrounded by some of the most beautiful historic homes in all of Fredericksburg, and a more picturesque and peaceful place is truly hard to imagine. Experience the loving ambiance of Amoroso Cottage on your next visit to the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It is sure not to be your last!

    Memories can never be forgotten

    We really enjoyed staying in Amoroso for our fist annual girls trip! Fredericksburg had all of the small town Texas charm that 5 girls from Dallas crave. We had so much fun shopping on Main Street. Although I think what we enjoyed the most was dancing to the 80's in our high heels at Crossroads. Taylor (Guest)

    The perfect way to celebrate

    I love how you guys have used so much time, attention to details and imagination when decorating! There is so much to admire here, like pieces of art in every nook! But not too much stuff either and that is the way to do it! We were at the wineries all day, having fun, tasting good wines and enjoying the company of our friends. We all are going to part our ways soon, so this is the perfect way to celebrate our friendship! It is nice and quiet here too and its so lovely to sit around the fireplace. - Norway Riikka & Audun (Guest)

    • Any cancellation made 10 days or more in advance of your arrival will only be charged a $35.00 cancellation fee per suite/property. The deposit you made at the time of the reservation (minus this cancellation fee) will be refunded to the same credit card we originally charged.
    • If you cancel your reservation fewer than 10 days before your scheduled arrival, you are responsible for the full amount of the stay UNLESS someone else reserves the room for the same night(s) and the same property that you have reserved. At that time, your card will be refunded all monies paid except for the $35.00 cancellation fee.  If you have purchased travel insurance you may submit a claim to Travel Guard by calling 800-827-0471 and giving them Absolute Charm's Travel Insurance Code #255770.

    Any request to change rooms, and/or reservation dates will be considered a cancellation and will result in a $35.00 move fee pursuant to the policies above.

    Packages/Spa Cancellation Policy: 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.


    Breakfast:

    Most of our properties include breakfast in the form of a voucher/certificate or a continental breakfast for each day of your stay.

    Please check the property's page for information regarding the details of your breakfast.


    Rates:

    All properties are quoted for single/double occupancy including breakfast. Applicable taxes will be added to the rates quoted. Additional persons beyond 2 will be charged $35 per person per night. 

    All properties generally require a two night minimum stay. Some of our properties allow for a one night stay during the week (Sunday through Thursday) but at the higher weekend rate. Moving from room to room for purposes of determining the length of your stay is not allowed. 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.

    One night stays may not be booked online but must be arranged manually by our reservation staff. Feel free to give us a call (866.244.7897) or send us an email (info@absolutecharm.com) anytime, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

    Rates are subject to change without notice.


    Children and Pets:

    Children and pets are allowed at some of our properties, but only if it is specifically mentioned on that room's page and on the Kid Friendly and/or Pet Friendly page. Please call us (866.244.7897) if you need guidance on which rooms will allow children and/or pets.

    Pets, if allowed (see above), there is a $35.00 per pet, per night fee at each property. This fee covers standard cleaning up after your pet(s). If your pet(s) cause any damage to the room or its furnishings, you will be charged the cost of the damages incurred. The fee for bringing an undisclosed pet is $200. No exceptions.

    Children, if allowed (see above), ages 4 and under are free and accordingly will not receive breakfast. Children ages 5 years and older will be charged at the adult rate of $35.00 per person and will be provided with breakfast. Again, not all properties are able to accommodate children so please double check the page of the property you are choosing to see if children are allowed.


    Group Policies:

    Some of our properties allow small parties or gatherings, all guests must be current guests with Absolute Charm ($35.00 fee per guest applies). If you are intending to have a bachelorette, anniversary, birthday or other party, we must receive written permission from the homeowner in advance.

    Group party size must be confirmed 10 days prior to arrival.

    No Split Bills! If you are sharing the fees for a room or rooms, please put the charges on one person’s card and split the bill among yourselves. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but there is no time to divide fees and process several cards at the time of check-in.

    You agree that any loss or damage to the property will be billed to your credit card by Absolute Charm. Guests are financially responsible for any damages done to the B&B or any of the property’s contents. Any excess cleaning will be billed to your credit card at an hourly rate of $25.00.


    Weddings:

    A few of our properties are able to accommodate VERY small weddings, only with advanced notice and permission of the homeowner. There is a non-refundable facility use fee of $1,500.00 plus a $500.00 damage/cleaning deposit. The damage/cleaning deposit will be refunded after the wedding as long as there is not any excess cleaning required. This applies to any type of wedding, rehearsal dinner, or wedding reception.


    $200 Fines Will Apply For The Following:

              1) Undisclosed Guests:

    Our rates are based on double occupancy meaning the rates shown are what we charge for either one or two people. After the first two guests, we charge an additional $35.00 per person per night. We understand that plans do change, so just please be SURE to let us know immediately if your party size has changed from what you originally indicated. If it is determined that you have brought more guests than originally indicated, a $200 fine will be incurred and will be charged to the card on file for the reservation.

              2) Undisclosed Pets:

    Pets are only allowed at a few of our properties, and only if it is specifically indicated on that room's page. Some rooms also have weight limitations on pets. For those rooms that do allow pets, there is a $35.00 per pet, per night fee. Whether or not the property actually accepts pets, a $200.00 fine will be charged to the card on file for the reservation if you bring an undisclosed pet(s).

              3) Fine for Smoking

    Smoking is NOT allowed inside any property as all of our B&B's are non-smoking. Smoking inside ANY Absolute Charm property will result in a $200 fine, which will be billed to the credit card on file for the reservation.

             4) Candles Not Allowed:

    Please note: For your safety and the safety of all our guests, absolutely no candles are permitted to be used on any of our properties. Damages to our rooms or violation of any of our policies, including those shown above, will result in a minimum $200.00 fine.


    Damages:

    You agree that any Loss or Damage to the property will be billed to your credit card by Absolute Charm. Any excess cleaning will also be billed to your credit card at an hourly rate of $25.00.


    Hot Tub Rules:

    • If you leave the lid up or off after you leave the hot tub, the tub will fill with leaves and debris and will need to be completely drained.
    • If the weather is hot, guests often choose to lower the temperature while they are in the tub. That is fine, but you MUST raise the temperature when you leave as the tub cannot stay below 98/99 degrees for long (body temperature) before bacteria begins to grow.
    • NEVER, ever put any type of bubble bath or oils in the hot tub. The tub makes bubbles via the jets. Oils or bubble bath will cause the tub to have to be drained immediately.
    • Finally, PLEASE remove all makeup and body lotions/oils before entering the tub as well so it will stay clean and nice for everyone. A layer of scum will appear in the tub if you enter it wearing makeup and/or oils.
    • A $75.00 hot tub cleaning fee will be imposed if these rules are broken and we have to drain the hot tub during or immediately after your stay. We do not want to do this, so please help us keep the hot tub nice for everyone.

    Bedwetting and Linen Damage Fee:

    If you bring children, or anyone, who wet the bed there will be a $50.00 fee per bed which has been wet. Also if sheets are ruined by spilling wine, coffee, blood, etc. on them a $50.00 fee will be charged to cover a portion of the cost to replace each set of sheets ruined. Accidents do happen; we simply ask you to reimburse the owner for your accidents that cause out-of-pocket expenses.


    Payment:

    We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Money Orders, Cash and Absolute Charm Gift Certificates purchased from Absolute Charm. At the time of booking, you must pay for half of the reservation minus the taxes. If you are making a reservation within 10 days of arrival then your entire balance must be paid in full.

    You agree to authorize Absolute Charm to charge the remaining balance due to the credit card on file 10 days before your arrival date. If card declines, you forfeit your deposit and your reservation is subject to cancellation. If you would like the remaining balance to be charged to a different card, it is YOUR responsibility to contact us with the new information prior to the deadlines above.

    No Split Bills! If you are sharing the fees for a room or rooms, please put the charges on one person’s card and split the bill among yourselves. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but there is no time to divide fees and process several cards at the time of check-in.
