Mockingbird House Suite 1

A Cozy Fredericksburg Cottage

Mockingbird House offers two suites to choose from and is more charming than what you will find at hill country hotels in Texas! You will enjoy peace and comfort in this cozy, duplex-styled cottage located on acreage just a few minutes from downtown Fredericksburg. Drive through the rolling hills and past all the deer and onto this lovely property. At the end of the drive you will find the cottage adjacent to the owners' home but completely private.

Mockingbird House Suite 1 boasts tuscan tiled floors, an authentic rock wood-burning fireplace and streamlined soothing decor. Guests enjoy a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a cozy dining space and views of the countryside. The bedroom includes a queen size bed with luxurious velvet bedding and your own private bath with a vessel sink and clawfoot tub with hand-held shower. This suite also includes a queen sleeper sofa in the den which comes in handy when an extra person or two needs to join you on your Hill Country getaway! Mockingbird House Suite 2 also has tuscan tiled floors and simple, soothing decor. Guests enjoy a full kitchen, a cozy dining space and views of the countryside. The bedroom includes a queen size bed with luxurious bedding and your own private bath with a stand alone shower.

Guests enjoy sitting on the porch, rocking away their cares and enjoying the views. You can expect a visit from the miniature donkeys, including the newest baby Gabriel. His mother, Amelia Earhart, is usually standing nearby hoping to have her ears scratched too!

Other amenities of this well appointed cottage include TV in the den with satellite, CD player with ipod jack, and a coffee pot with all the fixin's

Plan to stay at Mockingbird House in either Suite 1 or Suite 2 on your next visit to Fredericksburg. Gabriel and the gang will be waiting for you!

Amazingly quaint!

We loved the country location and the wildlife! We loved opening the back porch door and sight seeing the birds and especially the deer. The donkeys were so sweet and friendly! We will definitely return in the future Jonathan P (Guest)

Secluded and peaceful!

The place is definitely secluded and peaceful and a great place to relax and get away from the city noise. There are plenty of wildlife to take into view and the donkeys are great greeters and they enjoyed the carrots we brought along Walter (Guest)

Beautiful, Peaceful Spot

We really enjoyed out stay. We spent 5 nights at Mockingbird House and we never ran out of things to do. It was a great location for us and was supplied with everything we needed. And we really loved our visitors, so many hummingbirds you couldn't count them and of course, the donkeys! Gayle M. (Guest)
Reviews for Mockingbird House Suite 1


I came to relax and this lovely cottage was perfect! Hummingbirds, deer, rabbits and of course the burros were delightful. Close enough to Fredericksburg, to be there in 15 minutes but well away from the crowds. 30 minute drive to Enchanted Rock, which I climbed twice. Highly recommend the Mockingbird Cottage! Susan (Guest)

Very Comfortable

Such a great refuge! The suite was very comfortable and well equipped for our stay. I'm only sad that our visit (one night) was far too short. I wholeheartedly recommend this rental. Rosemary (Guest)

Amazing Seems Like an Understatement...

Amazing seems like an understatement to express how we both felt here at Mockingbird House. What a wonderful way to remember the beauty God has created! The best way to find peace and tranquility within our extremely busy lives. I'm eagerly awaiting our next stay! P.S. the donkeys were oh so cute! Lynette & Tamara from Dallas, Texas (Guest)

Nestled Within a Quiet Oasis

This was a perfect Labor Day getaway vacation. It was wonderful to be close to the city and also nestled within a quiet oasis. We loved the cottage (especially the sheets) as well as the donkeys, hummingbirds, deer... etc. We also greatly appreciated your wonderful hospitality. Thank you! Kristen & Richard (Guest)

Cozy and Relaxing

Your B&B was so cozy and relaxing. Couldn't of picked a better evening than a cool stormy night! We really enjoyed our 6th Anniversary! We both are huge animal lovers and loved all the critters big and small. Of course the beloved Donkeys stole our hearts! The peacock call and deer was just as awesome. We hope to stay here again! Dwayne & Nancy from San Antonio (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.
