Albert’s Alsatian

Gorgeous Accommodations in Fredericksburg

We are extremely proud to represent Albert's Alsatian, one of the most important historic buildings in Fredericksburg. When former president George Bush was looking for lodging near Fredericksburg, TX, he chose to stay at none other than Albert's Alsatian! This charming cottage, only a block or two from Main St., was once the Knopp family's barn, believe it or not! This cottage and the Sunday house next door were among the first historic properties restored in Fredericksburg by famed restoration architect Albert Keidel. The Sunday house bears a historical marker detailing the history of this fascinating property. These two properties are situated around a charming garden complete with ever-blooming flowers, a reflecting fountain moat and a hammock for passing a lazy afternoon. This fabulous compound has been featured in numerous publications including a large spread in "House Beautiful" . The owners of Albert's Alsatian occupy the Sunday house many weekends of the year, but Albert's Alsatian is all yours!

Passing through the French doors into your cottage, you will admire the original 1870's German stone masonry and original fachwerk construction. The high vaulted ceilings lend a light and spacious feeling. Inside you will find a full kitchen, living room, dining room, two bedrooms, and two baths. The most unique feature is probably the large wood-burning fireplace in the downstairs bathroom. Luxuriate in the large glass shower by the glow of firelight! You can also see the fireplace from the bedroom, creating a romantic and cozy atmosphere. Upstairs you will find a second bedroom with a "Rapunzel" window at the head of the bed which looks down into the living area. This fairy-tale bedroom is perfect for children! Make plans now to visit Albert's Alsatian on your next visit to the Hill Country.

Perfect spot

The perfect spot for a Texas Wine Country escape. Literally less than 5 mins away to nearly any food or shopping destination, but tucked away in a heavenly "secret garden" isolated from the traffic and crowds on Main street. We wished we could stay just a few more days Carl (Guest)

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.


We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, 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.

You agree to authorize Absolute Charm to charge the remaining balance due to the credit card on file 10 days (30 days for group properties) 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.
