Buckhorn Cabin

Fredericksburg Places to Stay

Looking for the ultimate in Fredericksburg, TX lodging during your Hill Country getaway? If your dream list includes a large, authentic 1790's log cabin, within walking distance of Main Street shops, capped by a private hot tub, then Buckhorn Cabin is the perfect place for you!

Buckhorn Cabin began its life as a simple cabin in Kentucky, built in 1790. In 1995, the cabin was meticulously re-assembled on a gorgeous tree-covered lot just three short blocks from the heart of Main Street shops.

The cabin offers a spacious King-sized bedroom downstairs complete with luxurious silk and velvet bedding and a 42" TV with extended cable selections. Adjacent to the bedroom you will find a large bathroom complete with a whirlpool bath tub for two with a rainwater shower above.

The den offers vaulted ceilings and a rock wood-burning fireplace with a leather sectional sofa and a second 42" flat screen TV. The den opens to a mini-kitchen complete with a mini-fridge and microwave and dining area. Overlooking the spacious den is an open loft which includes a second King-sized bedroom

In addition to all the indoor amenities offered by this spacious 1140 square foot cabin, our guests also enjoy a large front porch featuring an amazing view of a charming water feature complete with waterfall and one of the largest and undeniably most beautiful oak trees in all of Fredericksburg. When only the best will do, Buckhorn Cabin is the obvious choice!

Tips for Next Guests: Follow Heart. Be Honest & Real. Enjoy Every Minute.

I came to Buckhorn Cabin to visit and learn more about a beautiful woman that lives in town. I had the most amazing time! Arrived on a Monday and departed on Wednesday (but I'm leaving my heart). To be continued... W.P. (Georgetown, Texas) (Guest)

A Magical Christmas!

This is our first Christmas away from home. We've recently lost my sweet mother and I've never had a Christmas since I was born without her. Now all of our parents and our only child are in heaven together. It's just the two of us. My husband knew it was best not to stay at home and after a little research he found this adorable little paradise. It's the best decision he's ever made! We couldn't find a spot here that we didn't fall in love with. It was happy, peaceful and perfect in every single way. We're already planning our next trip back. Kenny & Kathy (Cedar Park, Texas) (Guest)

Get Away, Relax, Enjoy Time Together

We loved every second of it. It was so great we had a hard time making ourselves enjoy Fredericksburg. We just wanted to come back here. The hot tub (especially the privacy of it), we LOVED the Christmas tree, the amazing couch, the beds, Duke!, kitchenette... We felt like we were in our own world, yet the city was so close for us to explore. This place is a dream. Russ & Amy (Texas) (Guest)

Buckhorn Cabin will be our First Choice from Now On!

We fell in love with the cabin & Duke! The cabin is absolutely beautiful, the comfortable furniture and nice decor; the wonderful ambience; and all of the attention to detail. Duke is such a sweet cat (very pretty, too). We have been using Absolute Charm for years, but Buckhorn Cabin will be our first choice from now on! Scott & Pam (Waxahachie, Texas) (Guest)

Very Comfortable & Relaxing Cabin!

Beau is a music lover - it made my heart smile to watch him dance through the cabin and sing - mind you he can't carry a tune in a bucket - but it's the little things and perhaps one of the best melodies! P.S. The bathtub and Bose entertainment! We jammed more Police, Depeche Mode, Bangles & Steely Dan than this place will ever see!! Kathryn & Beau (Beaumont, Texas) (Guest)

Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful cabin! We came here for one reason, and we were definitely able to spend quality time together! The bed is amazingly comfortable; the hot tub is very relaxing and the Bose music player let us enjoy our favorite tunes while relaxing. We will definitely visit again and recommend this cabin to family and friends!! We appreciated the cleanliness of the cabin. It was spotless and we had everything we needed plus more. We definitely appreciated the close proximity to shopping and dining as well.

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.
