Freshly built, Outlot 201 Guest Houses offer relaxing hill country views less than five minutes from Fredericksburg's historic Main Street. Nestled in a grove of trees, the guest houses are the perfect place to retreat in a refined, yet relaxed, setting. The three houses at Outlot 201 include:

House 1 (Parker House, property no. 3961685)

House 2 (Pfiester House, property no. 3961691)

House 3 (Smith House, property no. 3961692)

Smith House at Outlot 201 features two bedrooms, each with a comfy, king size pencil post bed with luxury linens and plenty of pillows. The bedrooms are also equipped with DOHM White Noise Machines, for those who are serious about their sleep! The bathroom is spacious and brightly lit, with a double vanity and large walk-in shower which includes a relaxing rain shower overhead. The bath includes 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.

Upon arrival, you're pantry will be stocked with homemade quick breads and granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice and bottled water. You'll also find plenty of coffee and tea on hand.

Out the back door, you'll find a spacious outdoor living space overlooking the pasture, with our horse and sheep grazing in the distance. French doors lead to a charming alcove with a table perfect for dining or late night card games. Just down the steps, you'll find a clean-burning fire pit surrounded by cozy chairs on the patio -- the perfect spot after a long day of shopping or wine tasting!

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

If you're interested in booking more than one house and would like to expedite the booking process, please feel free to contact the owner directly so we can block the houses for you and arrange for one payment to save you time.

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. And lastly, Outlot 201 is a non-smoking property and we very much appreciate your support of our commitment to a smoke-free environment for our guests.

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 four 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 loved 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.

Farmhouse perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here (the 2 bedroom farmhouse) the last week of July and it was a wonderful experience! The farmhouse is so fabulous...the inside as well as the outside! Very clean and beautifully decorated right down to the lovely fresh flowers in the kitchen. I wouldn't have changed a thing! We had the pleasure of meeting the very sweet Darla and receiving some of her banana bread. It was delicious, as well as the granola, orange juice and yogurt left for us in the fridge. She has thought of everything! We loved sitting outside in morning and evening and watching (and listening) to the sheep and horse. It was so picturesque! Truly, everything we had hoped it would be. We had the luxury of being in the country and all of the wonderful, relaxing benefits that come with that, but were only 5 minutes from anything you could want in town. The best of both worlds! We look forward to a return trip to this charming farmhouse!

It was perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The host was very attentive beforehand and during stay. We stayed with fam in two seperate houses, which was nice to be close.

There were some homemade goodies upon arrival in cabinet kitchen area. Small fridge and plenty of glasses and silverware. The entire place was clean and cutely decorated. We LOVED the fire pit and outside area. It was also very roomy for our family of three. Our only real complaint was that we were from the West coast and needed to 'sleep in' a bit longer and the pull down drapes werent light blocking at all. Would totally stay again and recommend!
