Behind this original home sit eight newly-constructed cottages, each with a distinct architectural style and personality that reflect different time periods in Fredericksburg’s history.

Built in either colonial, early Fredericksburg or Victorian construction styles, these cottages are each named after the Blacksmith children to honor the property’s heritage.

They also feature practical amenities like a flatscreen TV, coffee bar and small kitchen area for guests’ convenience. All amenities will convey with the sale of the property.

The stunning setting of the property is another element that makes it a truly unique find, with sweeping views of Barons Creek and grounds were designed by award-winning landscape architect, Rene J.L. Fransen of New Orleans. A stunning water feature runs the length of the site, and can be illuminated at night to enhance the intimate courtyard area.

The property is fully ADA compliant, holds a liquor license, and features conveniences like a parking lot with an electric car recharge station. 

Each cottage and home can be rented separately or as the full property, making it ideal for hosting groups on a corporate retreat, family reunion, wedding celebration, or friend getaway.
