Bella Vista Cottage, in historic Fredericksburg, is a bed and breakfast set on 55 acres of beautiful Texas Hill Country. The Cottage was designed and built by the owners with the help of Eric Mustard a local Fredericksburg architect (www.mustarddesign.net). The 2,000 square foot cottage is meant to be a weekend getaway home to relax and unwind from the hectic stress of city life. The exterior design of Bella Vista contains architectural elements of the local German farm houses found throughout the Texas Hill Country, Victorian style cottages and American Prairie architecture melded into a unique, inviting, and modern approach. Native Texas landscaping encompasses the house along with a Buffalo turf grass lawn and hundreds of Live Oak trees adorn the property enhancing the feeling of truly being immersed in the Hill Country. The front and rear covered porches offer a relaxing place to watch the sunrise or sunset, the various forms of wildlife that abound or just a pleasant place to unwind really giving you the special atmosphere you can get only be staying at a bed and breakfast.
