About the property

Three cozy guesthouses offering a unique get a way for family and friends.

Ava Haus is an authentic German Farmhouse located just minutes from Fredericksburg on approximately three acres. Ava Haus offers a unique alternative for family and friends to gather during holidays or as a simple get a way for a few days. Our grounds and guesthouses are ideal for retreats, family and college reunions, bridal parties under the canopy of a great Texas sky. Guests can book reservations at the Suite only or with Ava Haus Dairy and Ava Haus Garden Cottage.

Each guesthouse has a TV with Satellite, WI-FI internet, Refrigerator (always stocked with yogurt, juice and water), the kitchenette provides Keurig and traditional coffee pots, tea and a selection of snacks. Guests are free to enjoy board games, BBQ grills, and explore the ample grounds. At Ava Haus we welcome your entire family to include children and pets (15.00 fee per pet).

The Dairy is a step back in time with a high-pitched ceiling and original loft. The bedroom area is spacious and inviting with 2 king-size beds located beneath the loft. A focal point is a beautiful stained glass window located in the loft to catch the morning sun. The French country daybed sleeps a fifth guest or simply provides a comfortable place to relax. The large country wardrobe (which houses the mini-kitchen) and rustic furnishings give a French Country feel to the Dairy. A bathroom that includes shower only is located off the living area of the Dairy. Like all of our guesthouses, an ample porch provides a great place to relax and enjoy the Texas Hill Country. Complete with an antique double wrought-iron rocker to enjoy your favorite beverage.

We look forward to your stay and strive to ensure that you experience the best of the Hill lavender, peaches, live music, restaurants, shopping, hiking and more.

About Pattie Davis

Dear Guests,

Thank you for visiting the Ava Haus B & B listings. I have had the pleasure of owning and operating Ava Haus since 2011 and truly have enjoyed every moment. As a mother of four girls and a previous school superintendent, owning a B and B has been a breath of fresh air for me; thus the name Ava Haus: breath of life.

Pattie Davis purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Pattie Davis chose Texas Hill Country

When looking for property to purchase, I immediatly fell in love with the grounds and the comfortable feel of the property. Ava Haus represented the authentic heritage of what has been so lovingly preserved in the city of Fredericksburg. Also, the location was perfect for me. It was away from the center of town yet close enough to be in Fredericksburg in less than five minutes.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Ava Haus allows guests to enjoy the benefits of the country and still be minutes from wineries, shopping, restaurants and the natural parks of the area. Guests can have a true feel for the history of the region when they stay in an authentic German homestead complete with the original well, thick limestone walls and even the original root cellar where the pioneers stayed during times of danger. I am very excited about this new chapter in my life and look forward to your visit at Ava Haus.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

So cozy and warming! Everything was great. The area is very quiet so you can sleep soundly. Although we didn't watch, they had a BUNCH of VCR movies(love it!). The shower was a bit small, but otherwise perfect. The toilet doesn't flush very well, so you have to hold the flush handle a bit longer. I walked around barefoot and my feet were not dirty. BIG PLUS!

Would definitely recommend staying here!

Warm and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch with our dogs. It was very nice to arrive after a long road trip to find a delicious pastry. The house was charming, spacious, clean and crisp. Thank you, Patti, for a very pleasant and relaxing place to stay. We plan to return and stay longer next time.

Lovely decor and owner

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed the owner came right over on a Saturday night when we couldn't get the VCR to work (our fault). She made sure we were taken care of and didn't make us feel as if we an inconvenience. The charm, the comfortable beds, old movies available and perfect porch for sitting to drink coffee made it the perfect stay for our girls' weekend!

Nice space, but to close to the main road

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying at AVA Haus. It was one big room, only the restroom was separate, which is very small, but functional. The furnishings needs some upgrading and repairs. Really the only complaint that we had was the location being so close to the main road. We like to sit our at night and look at the stars. The sound of the cars passing by was distracting for us, we thought Ava House was more secluded or at least further off the main road. We could see the cars in front of the house and on the side. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. We were a little worried about the car sounds keeping us awake, but they didn't.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and could enjoy the view of the stars on the porch. Yes we are out of the city and not so remote - but still able to enjoy the stars and deer on the property!

Going back in time!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so charming! Rustic, but extremely comfortable. My friend and I loved having 50+ VHS tapes to choose from to watch from the big day bed like couch and the king sized beds were great. The pastries chosen for our breakfast weren't just from a grocery store, but from an amazing bakery in town, so that was an unexpected plus! It's very close to town and we had a great view of the sunset from our porch. I would absolutely stay here again :)
