Reviews for Calico Cottage

Charming House; Great Location!

My girlfriends and I stayed here last weekend for a mom's getaway! The house is so adorable and has everything you need! The beds were comfortable and the sheets were lovely! The location is great because you can walk to everything on main street and not have to worry about driving. Despite being so close to main the area is very quiet! Our lock was sticking and they sent someone over immediately to fix it. Cannot recommend this property enough! The only thing to keep in mind is that the sun room doesn't have AC so if you're going in the summer (or during a crazy hot weekend in November lol) that room may be too hot for anyone to sleep in!

Great House! Close to Main Street Attractions

The house was lovely with pleasing decor. It is an easy walk to Main Street, but also nice for getting away from it all. Very clean and a nice floor plan that provided plenty of space. Bridget J (Guest)

Great Place to Stay

Will definitely stay again! Very clean and tidy. Laura was so helpful and kind. She replied to immediately if I had any questions. This was far enough from Main Street that we didn't walk but it worked out perfect because we were there during the week and there was plenty of parking available. This was a great tip with great place to stay, great shopping and lots of great food!!! Jason S. (Guest)

Our new place to stay in Fredericksburg!

My 3 friends and I stayed here for a much needed husband/children free weekend. What a lovely place! Looks like something Joanna Gaines would design. Cute little decorative items and furniture and shiplap in the living room! Bedrooms were decent size, master was HUGE, with comfy beds and furniture. I slept on the porch and it was very comfortable. Place was clean and comfortable in all aspects. Three bathrooms were really helpful for 4 females trying to get ready. It was close enough to walk easily right into town. The owner was very sweet and helpful in answering questions beforehand. We loved the front porch and spent lots of time sipping wine, eating snacks and talking. I hope we can come back very soon. Our new place to stay in Fredericksburg!! Girls Getaway (Guest)

Perfect Place!

There were three adult couples in our group, so having three bedrooms and three bathrooms made Calico Cottage a perfect place for us. It was very clean and neat. Plenty of linens were provided. We enjoyed our morning coffee out on the patio, a great way to start the day. We hope to come and stay again. It was close enough to walk to Main Street fi you wanted to, very convenient to the Rock Box. The master suite is very large and spacious, children would be comfortable on a floor pallet if needed. We had plenty of hot water for everyone to shower. Wayne W. (Guest)
Reviews for Calico Cottage

Perfect Cottage

This was an adorable house in every sense of the word! It had the kind of charm that only an old home can have... and it was updated and decorated perfectly. The beds were super comfy, everything was very clean, and the whole house was warm and fresh. While not right on Main Street, it was a super quick drive (or a decent walk) to downtown, the Nimitz Museum, and other attractions. The owner left champagne, local wine, and a delicious chocolate torte to welcome us. Wonderful place to relax. Stephanie I. from San Angelo, Texas (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. If you are making a reservation within 10 days (30 days for group properties) 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 (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.

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.
