About Carolyn Moore

An interior design lover at heart, I am the buyer for red: modern lines . vintage finds, on Main Street in Fredericksburg. I am the mother of two girls, now grown women, who are my delight and I spend most of my days looking for the best in modern and vintage home decor. Abby's is inspired by a trip I took with my daughters to Southern France in 1998 - I brought back a love for cool calming colors and seaside inspiration with a vintage-modern twist. I hope you enjoy Abby's as much as I have!

Carolyn Moore purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Carolyn Moore chose Fredericksburg

I was drawn to Fredericksburg after my parents purchased a home from the town's early founding. After tiring of cold winters in the Midwest, the charm of Fredericksburg, the sunny days and beautiful green Hill Country won me over. I decided to move to the area with my girls and work on a home of my own.

The blue bonnets and wildflowers each spring, coupled with fresh peaches from the local orchards and now the emerging wine country make this a beautiful place to live. Octoberfest and other seasonal festivals bring life to this small town, as does our vibrant Main Street. One hour from both Austin and San Antonio, I can hop in the car whenever I need to feel the city. For so many reasons, I feel lucky to call Fredericksburg home.

What makes this cottage unique

When I bought my home, right next door to Abby's, I was charmed by the surrounding homes and the proximity to the heart of Fredericksburg. Many of the homes around Abby's were built over 100 years ago, and my dear neighbors are constantly gardening and maintaining them. Once I fell in love with the ample porch and vintage feel of my home, I immediately started to renovate - adding a pool in the backyard as soon as the spring came and building the limestone cabin that is now Abby's to share with friends and guests alike. I hope you'll make it your home away from home - a respite any time you want to get away from it all.

Very cute place, and we really enjoyed the pool.

  • 5 of 5

It had everything we needed. It was too hot to walk to shops and restaurants, but it was still very close and easy access. We went mountain biking at Flat Rock ranch, and it was less than 30 min away. Everything was great!

Cute place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Abbys guesthouse. The furnishings were comfortable and the bed was very comfortable. We had plenty of space for 2 people. The pool looked nice although I didn't get in as it was cold. It was a little walk to the stores on main street but only about 15 minutes. I would stay here again.

We can't wait to share Fredericksburg with you, at Abby's.
