Had I been home this Easter weekend, I would have undoubtedly worked most of Saturday and Sunday afternoon.  Thanks to my husband, we were here, enjoying our tranquil cottage.  His goal in planning this surprise trip was to take me away from highly stressful work conditions and the constant needs of family and home.  Mission accomplished!!  Batteries re-charged!!
    Best of all were the breakfasts!  How delicious and special they were!  And it was so very nice to enjoy them on such beautiful dishes.  We also enjoyed the beautiful garden, quiet surroundings, easy access to the town and vineyards, and being able to ask you about locations to enjoy. You and your husband are master hosts, in every sense, and we have already begun recommending your "home away from home."  Thank you for the perfect stay!

Welcome to Das Garten Haus!

Das Garten Haus was built by a retired rancher in the late 1940's as a private home. When Lynn and Kevin MacWithey moved to Fredericksburg in 1994 with the intention of operating a B&B, they found this beautiful home with three private suites already part of the original construction, and knew it would be a perfect home for them, and bed and breakfast for their guests. With minimal changes, they were able to open their inn in the fall of 1994.

Unique to the Texas Hill Country, and Fredericksburg in particular, Das Garten Haus is a true, traditional Bed and Breakfast only 1/2 mile from downtown. Lynn and Kevin live on site in the main residence and operate the inn. Lynn serves a full breakfast every morning in the dining room, utilizing fresh herbs and vegetables from their garden.

After 20 years in business, Lynn and Kevin are also excellent concierges of Fredericksburg and the Texas Hill Country, present to answer your questions, make dinner reservations, provide maps, directions, short-cuts, and parking tips. They look forward to welcoming you to their Garden House. "Our years in the B&B business have brought us the finest of customers, and we strive to be the finest of hosts."

"Our goal is to have your stay exceed your expectations - and in the course of your stay, if you doze off in the garden, better yet!"
