The bedroom is also equipped with a DOHM White Noise Machine, for those who are serious about their sleep! The adjacent bathroom is spacious and brightly lit, with a double vanity and large walk-in shower which includes a relaxing rain shower overhead. The bathroom has a toilet closet, for additional privacy.

You’ll find the separate living area a comfortable place to relax, with a flat screen television and free flowing Wi-Fi. The area also includes a small dining table and well-equipped (armoire) butler's pantry, with a microwave, refrigerator, sink, and electric tea kettle, as well as a Bunn coffee maker to brew locally roasted coffees from our friends at Ranch Road Roasters.

Out the back door, you'll find a charming brick patio overlooking the pasture, with our horse and sheep grazing in the distance. The patio provides beautiful sunset views -- the perfect spot after a long day of shopping or wine tasting! There is also a small, clean-burning fire column on the patio.

Parker House has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, including Roam toiletries, a hair dryer, iron and ironing board.

We welcome children, with the simple request that they don't roam too far from your sight. We are not able to allow pets due to the livestock and other animals on the property.

About Darla + Mike Smith

We are Mike and Darla Smith, and we live nearby in the property's 50's farm house. Both of our families live in and around Fredericksburg, and we feel incredibly blessed to call this place home! We have four children -- three grown kids and a fun little six year old who has been a champ as we've built these guest houses!

Darla + Mike Smith purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Darla + Mike Smith chose Fredericksburg

Mike bought the property in 1999 from the Pfiester family, who were one of the original German families to settle Fredericksburg. As families arrived to the area in the mid-1800s, the German Emigration Company gave them a "townlot" and an "outlot" (just outside of town) which they could farm. As you've probably guessed, our property was Outlot 201. Mike was lured by the property's tranquil setting and convenient access to town. He also loved that the property was still surrounded by other member's the Pfiester family.

In January 2010, we were married; and that December, we welcomed our young son, Parker (Darla's maiden name). Though Darla had a charming 1920's cottage in town, there was no question that this was going to be our home -- we both loved it so much.

When we decided to add the guest houses, we knew we wanted to celebrate all of the families who've enjoyed living on Outlot 201 through the years. So, each house has been named accordingly -- Pfiester, Smith and Parker!

What makes this cottage unique

Every day, we feel thankful to live in Fredericksburg. It truly is a charmed life, and we know we are blessed to call this place home. Over the years, we've enjoyed sharing our home with family and friends, largely because the property offers such a pretty pastoral setting. We love how we feel a world away from it all -- yet we can hit the bank, the post office AND pick up a gallon of milk, then be back home in 20 minutes! :-) We felt visitors to the guest houses would really appreciate having the best of both worlds as well -- a quiet, country setting just minutes away from all Fredericksburg has to offer.

Charming Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Outlot 21 is about a 7 minute drive from downtown historic Fredericksburg, so close to amenities but far enough away that you feel like you’re out of the bustle. There's a row of pecan trees in front of the three cottages, with goats and horses that were grazing in the field behind us each day, plus lots of deer sightings along Live Oak Road. There's plenty of privacy and space between the cottages, we saw other cars but were never bothered by noise or disruption. There were so many sweet details: Christmas decorations, the bowl of fresh clementines on the table, the vase of lilies, tulips and evergreen we were greeted with (and was refreshed after 2 days), the homemade banana bread and granola. The layout of the living space is brilliant, with sliding doors to conserve space and lots of windows. There's an ingenious little kitchen area made to look like an old Hoosier cabinet with a built-in sink, teapot, coffeemaker, plenty of dishes, and a mini fridge. The location is ideal for Fredericksburg and all the Hill Country has to offer.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend at Outlot 201! We stayed in Parker House, which was perfect for my husband and me to celebrate our anniversary and enjoy a relaxing weekend in a beautiful setting. Our cottage was gorgeous, extremely clean, and with everything we needed. We loved waking up and seeing sheep in the pasture on one side of the property, and cattle on the other. We enjoyed breakfast each morning on the patio and a glass of wine at sunset. Everything was truly perfect for our weekend and we look forward to many more visits.

Quaint, simple & perfect

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this and had a couple who reserved next door - it was a perfect spot for a kid free escape. Owners were fantastic and welcoming - even had homemade granola & banana bread along with a stocked fridge. We would highly recommend!

We loved the farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

The farm house is decorated beautifully. It is light and airy and so inviting. Darla and Mike thought of everything, from homemade banana bread to the most delicious coffee. We enjoyed wine time on the back porch watching the sheep graze. So relaxing! Hard to believe you’re only six minutes minutes from the hubbub of Main Street. I highly recommend this place...can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic! Will definitely be back

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need and even things you didn't know you needed. The location is fantastic...country but so convenient to everything you want to see. The house is so luxurious and the nice touches, such as banana bread and fresh flowers make you feel super pampered. We left pledging to come back every year. Worth every penny.
