We will definitely be back!

Lucinda was such a cute place! Dawn was extremely accommodating when I asked if I could push our stay out by one day. She was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Access to downtown Fredericksburg was less than 10 min, and it was nice to be a little bit out of town so we could enjoy the quiet. We will definitely be back. Thanks Dawn for such a nice and comfortable stay!

Wonderful Spot for A Romantic Getaway!

Lucinda is a super cute space! We rented for my boyfriend’s 40th birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The complimentary wine was a thoughtful touch and the trailer is adorably decorated. The sunken hot tub and gas fire pit were AMAZING! Beware of stickers on the deck though! We learned the hard way 😆. We made burgers one night on the awesome gas grill and enjoyed eating in that evening. The bed is wonderfully comfortable! Very lush! The privacy and location close to but outside of town provided amazing night star views while sitting by the fire pit. Traffic noises from the road are a little closer/louder than ideal but were not disruptive. A wonderful spot for a romantic getaway!

Cutest Place and in such a Wonderful Place!

This place is the cutest and in such a wonderful place. We were able to Uber to and from town at an affordable price. My best friend and I stayed here on our girls trip to the wine country, but we’ve already decided to go back! We both think it’s a nice romantic spot so we are going to come back with our significant others next time :)

Great Location!

Great location. Dawn went above and beyond for our stay

Highly Recommend!

Quite wonderful and peaceful and felt very private with the wrapped around wooden fence. Deck faces south and during the winter, great view of sunrise and stargazing at night. The nearby farm animals are great fun to watch. It is not completely off the grid, there is a state highway nearby. But dont let this bother you, as you will be in enjoying the town and sites during the day. At night it gets very quiet and you can sleep with windows open and not hear the highway. The farm animals are great! No worries, no ranch smells, they are not near the area where you stay. The trailer is cozy, the bed is very comfortable! Having a private hot tube and firepit sold me on this place. Far enough out of town, but not far enough to feel like it is a drive to go into town. Highly recommend.

Such a wonderful place to stay!

Such a wonderful place to stay during a Fredericksburg trip! A quick drive to anywhere you’d like to visit without the busyness of being right downtown. Dawn was very quick to answer and resolve any question or issue we had. Definitely take advantage of all this property has to offer! Getting into the hot tub and enjoying a fire was so nice, and we spent an entire afternoon in the game room. It was very private and quiet, the perfect place to relax. We enjoyed it all so much that we plan to stay here again on our next trip.

PERFECT GLAMPING GETAWAY!! We stayed in the Lucinda for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and we LOVED it! The bed is so comfy, but the best part is the deck! It is very private and includes a gas fire pit and a hot tub. The indoor stereo connects with Bluetooth to play music outside. We spent the entire weekend on the deck watching nature and relaxing. Dawn was a gracious host, and we have already recommended this jewel to some of our friends!

This place looks exactly like the listing! We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including cooking supplies. The view and sunrise in the morning were awesome from the spacious attached deck. We loved enjoying the evening outside in the hot tub. The rental is in a quiet area but only 10-15 minutes from all of the Fredericksburg main attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

I hope to stay again for longer!

The manager was very responsive and got our problems solved very quickly. The property was clean and adorable, and only a 5 min drive away from the downtown area. It was a beautiful weekend getaway. I hope to stay again for longer and use that hot tub
