Authentic Glamping in a converted barn! Glamping is like camping + AC/heat, and all the supplies needed for an enjoyable adventure included. Full kitchen, seasonal stock tank pool, outdoor theatre, minutes to downtown Fred, and 1 mi to Luckenbach. What else could you need! Pick your own eggs! Book a trail ride while you’re here! Rustic + unique, we can’t wait to see you! Every stay helps save more horses from slaughter.
Like no place else! Experience REAL Glamping in Fredericksburg/Luckenbach and true authenticity. Our place was thoughtfully put together after the old Luckenbach bar interior (and we nailed it! Just sayin) Go check it out 1 mile down the road and you’ll agree! Our Glamping barn is unreplicable, totally unique, and nothing like the sterile impersonal new-build cabins that all seem to be the same.
Who would enjoy Glamping? The city dweller looking to escape and unwind, the country dweller that’s looking for a unique country experience outside of what they do day to day. The Star-gazer looking for dark skies in the Texas Hill Country. The Fredericksburg tourist looking for something other than a “traditional bnb”. Luckenbach bands. The horse lover! Grandmas/Grandpas, kids, all generations, anyone looking to HAVE FUN!
Glamping at its best in an old barn- We’re your all-in-one Airbnb lodging + experience! The feel is very much like a beautiful rustic cabin (except this is Glamping remember). It’s like the outdoors turned inside out! Our barn is converted with large guest quarters. The interior is finished with completely reclaimed materials “Junk Gypsy” style- so it’s very rustic, comfortable, charming, unique, and eco-friendly!
You’ll get the 1000sq ft converted barn, 800sq ft covered outdoor space, and the best TX sunrise views you could ever hope for of the horse pasture out front! 7 minutes to Fredericksburg, 2 minutes to Wine Road 290, and just 1 mile to Luckenbach. We’re at the heart of it all! Located on a historic ranch where we rescue Kill Pen Horses bound for slaughter in Mexico. Every guest stay helps us rescue more US horses from slaughter.
Inside- large full kitchen and dining room, with wood-burning stove. Play Chicken sh!t Bingo in the open dining area! (Yes, I just said that- and it’s FUN. Catch your own chicken outside)
There’s also a smoke room just off the kitchen perfect for storing ice chests. (We use it to smoke meats in winter)
Two bedrooms each with a memory foam bed. Bedroom 2 has enough room to put up a cot or air mattress if needed. It is long and narrow with two entrances. Bedroom 1 is spacious but cozy with beautiful views out two windows. Birdwatching is spectacular out the north window where you’ll view your own private deer feeder just right for watching all sorts of wildlife!
The living room has a den-like atmosphere and is perfect for a cozy game night or a little relaxing around the TV. An electric fireplace adds the cozy with the touch of a button! A leather couch, stately leather recliner, leather love seat, and antique rocking chair provide enough seating for 6-7.
The full bath is tiny but chock-full of amazing details! The sink faucet light runs off of hydro-electricity when the water is turned on! The 6’ clawfoot tub was made in 1896 for a Bordello (house of “Ladies of the Night”) in New Braunfels, TX. You can still see parts of her pastel blue sides. The tub/shower faucet is a custom Industrial design made from reclaimed copper, complete with a rain shower head!
The full kitchen/dining has HUGE 17’ vaulted ceilings and reclaimed timber wall, large fridge, antique 1941 electric stove (her name is Ethel), large 1912 sink, and 100+ year old butcher block countertops salvaged from the old butcher shop in town.
The interior has painted cement floors throughout, and a mini-split AC. Bedroom doorways have curtains for privacy while letting the AC keep everything a comfortable temperature.
Outside, you’ll be amazed at ALL THE SPACE underneath the covered sitting area. An 8ft filtered custom Stock Tank lounge pool is perfect to relax with a drink. Enjoy a movie on the 120” outdoor theatre screen! Plug in the projector and DVD player, you’re ready for outdoor movie night farm style! Bring popcorn and chairs or sit on hay bales! The space is perfect for a party, or just sharing around a campfire with your friends! A large charcoal or wood BBQ is just what you need to create the perfect supper after hitting the Wine Trail and distilleries all day. Sit on hay bales, bring a guitar! (Bring extra chairs if hay benches aren’t your thing) Pitch Washers in the Washer Holes! Did I mention how AWESOME the sunrises are out here? They’re AWESOME!
Your very own pen of Pygmy goats is just waiting for you to get out your yoga mat and do some goat yoga with you! The chickens occasionally like to join as well. It’s an experience in itself! Be ready for Instagram worthy posts!
Collect your own eggs for breakfast out in the chicken coop (do this the afternoon before). No guarantees how many eggs you’ll pick, take that up with Henny Penny and her hen friends. You may even get a duck egg if you’re lucky!
Enjoy watching the horses out front. Take a little walk up the old road back behind the Barn. There’s a little trail skimming the fence line that circles back to the Barn taking you through a little patch of forest. If you’re here during the right time, there may even be Wild Mustang Grapes to pick along that trail!
What is “Glamping”? Glamping is a hybrid word, glamorous+camping. There can be many interpretations of this term, but the common thread of Glamping is this- integrating the outdoors, nature, animals, wildlife, INSIDE with many of the comforts of indoors OUTSIDE. It’s kind of like camping and lodging turned inside out! Try our style of Glamping, and we encourage you to try others’ all over the world! It’s a thing y’all- and it’s here to stay.
We know you’ll love it out here and have an unforgettable time! We can’t wait to see you!
THERE IS NO WIFI BUT YOU’LL FIND THE BEST CONNECTION ; )
**Note on WiFi- there is NO WiFi out here for two reasons. 1) you cannot get a reliable WiFi signal inside a completely metal barn. It’s just not gonna happen. 2) The constant EMF’s emitted by WiFi are horrible for your health, animal health, and sleep. Be prepared to have a WiFi detox out here! Your health (and sleep) will thank you for it.
Every stay helps our horse rescue! Over 100,000 American horses are shipped per year to Mexico and Canada for slaughter, and then consumed by Europe or Canada. Just staying at our Glamping Barn helps bring awareness to our cause. While we can’t possibly save 100,000 horses all ourselves, it makes a HUGE difference to each horse we have saved, and those we fundraise for that get adopted by loving homes.
We live in the middle of hay fields and forests on a working ranch, but we’re just 1.5 miles to Luckenbach! Downtown Fred is 7 miles, “Wine Road 290” is 2 miles from us. Altstadt German Brewery is 2.8 miles from us.
Stargazing is spectacular out here, and the sunrises are breathtaking!
We also host two small campgrounds on our farm, so you may see the glow of little campfires here and there as you drive up to the barn.
