Wonderful Spot for a Getaway!

This place was a wonderful spot for getting away from the city for a few nights! Very stylishly decorated, has everything you need to cook if you want to, and the outdoor space is great. The positioning of the home and the fences also give it a lot of privacy and a secluded feel. And it’s not too far from Fredericksburg! Would definitely stay here again

Henley is the Perfect Place for any Getaway!

Henley is the perfect place for any getaway. It was so clean, cozy, and had everything we needed to enjoy a weekend in Fredricksburg! The location can’t be beat; Henley is situated on quiet, open, farmland with beautiful sunsets and wild animals but also only a very short drive to downtown. We loved the outdoor fire pit and the hot tub. The sunrise from the bedroom is spectacular. The shower and kitchen are spacious. Amer clearly has paid attention to detail because Henley is complete with any thing that you might need during your stay. Amer and his team were quick to respond to questions and to ensure our stay was perfect. We are SO glad we chose Henley for our weekend getaway and can’t wait to go back soon!
