Southern Living Texas Vacations Special Issue May 2001 "Sample Fredericksburg"
Retreat into the heart of Texas Hill Country. Halfway between Johnson City and Fredericksburg, off U.S. 290, sits Rose Hill Manor (weekend rates $135 to $150, toll free 1-877-767-3445). Perched atop a swell overlooking the Pedernales River Valley, the spacious inn welcomes you to a weekend getaway. Settle in for a quiet evening, savoring a four-course gourmet dinner (reservations are a must) and then a good book from the inn's extensive collection. Or head into town for a peek at the shops and a taste of traditional Fredericksburg at Der Lindenbaum on East Main Street.
Full breakfasts of eggs scrambled with cheese and fresh herbs, French toast made with homemade bread, seasonal fruit, juice, and coffee lure you out of your comfy bed and help you greet the day.
