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.

THE PERFECT FARMHOUSE EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect. The Owners have thought of everything! Banana nut bread, yogurt, home-made granola, fresh fruit, fresh sunflowers, water, coffee, orange juice. Decorated with such thought and as clean as any property I've ever visited. From the front window you see longhorn cows and from the back window a herd of sheep. So peaceful. My best friend and I visited Fredericksberg to get out of the busy Dallas life and to enjoy the wonderful food and shopping offered there. The property is located 2-1/2 miles from Main Street and is the perfect place to land after a day of shopping. This would be a perfect place for a family gathering, a girls' weekend ~ we stayed in the two bedroom. The one bedroom cottages (2 of them) are beautiful too. Each cottage has an armoire that has a small refrigerator, a sink, coffee maker, microwave, and dishes. We loved our stay and will definitely stay again! You can't go wrong with this one!

Great Stay in Fredericksburg !

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Farmhouse - Very clean comfortable, thoughtfully decorated and a little off the beaten path. We also really appreciated Darla’s hospitality (delicious banana bread, fresh peaches, and coffee from Ranch Road Roasters, and fridge was stocked with yogurt, orange juice and milk) and winery and restaurant recommendations.

Comfy, thoughtfully designed farmhouse retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at this lovely and very thoughtfully designed farmhouse. It is located on a quiet road which has a great country feel but is just a quick zip from town. The beds are comfy and there is a large bathroom. Details from the homemade banana bread and fruit to the multiple outside seating options make it a serene retreat. We will definitely return.

Perfect Fredericksburg trip!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip staying in the Smith House at Outlot 201 with our two young boys! As usual the house and grounds are clean and comfortable. Perfect location close to town but you still feel unplugged. Mike and Darla and so friendly and easy to contact if you need anything, and her granola is delicious! Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Far surpassed all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We can not stress enough how much we enjoyed our recent trip to Fredericksburg and our lodging at Outlot 201 Smith House. The serenity of the environment coupled with all of the well thought out amenities of Outlot 201 were definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We were just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of town but just far enough to enjoy the peaceful nights overlooking the pasture while visiting around the fire-pit. No detail went un-noticed in these farm houses. From the wonderful rainforest shower in our unit to the amazing bed linens and super comfy mattresses, to the fresh banana bread, OJ and yummy home-made granola, we were delighted by all the small details. We will definitely be returning!! Just hoping word doesn't get out too much before we can get back!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about this location and the owners, Darla and Mike! Our home was very clean and stocked with everything we’d need. It’s country living 2 minutes from Main Street, the perfect mix of the two. I’ve already recommended this place to my friends and family. If you need a place to stay, this is where you want to be!
