What can we say?  This was a definite experience.  Four of us came on a girlfriend's weekend getaway.  Two of us had stayed at a B&B before - two of us had not.  We were blown away by the filling and delectable food you served for breakfast.  You both are such gracious, helpful, and thoughtful hosts.  We are all excited to go home with a signed cookbook of your culinary masterpieces.  The most unexpected part was dining with the other guests.  We got acquainted with folks from New Hampshire and Washington State.  The cream on top was a personal concert given by Melina Kastle  - singing "It's a Wonderful World".  Unforgettable!  Thank you and God Bless.

Welcome to Das Garten Haus Bed and Breakfast and Das Garten Haus Guesthouse!  We now have two, separate properties right next door to each other - our original B&B and our new Guesthouse.  Please click on Guesthouse to read about our new property - a newly refurbished bungalow serving a continental breakfast for our guests' leisure!  Read about our original B&B below - now in its 21st year of operation!

The original Das Garten Haus Bed and Breakfast 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 for the guests of the bed and breakfast.  Those guests staying at Hattie's Half and the Master Suite next door at the Guesthouse enjoy a continental breakfast, where Lynn leaves homemade goodies for you. They utilize fresh vegetables and herbs from their garden as the seasons permit.

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!"
