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

Just the Relaxing Weekend Getaway We Were Looking For!

The stay was lovely and the owner did a great job of paying attention to detail. It was just the relaxing weekend getaway that we were looking for!

The tiny home and property it sits on is just beautiful! It feels like your far away on your own private island but is just minutes from downtown and anything else you might need. The hot tub area was private and romantic with gorgeous sunset views and meeting all of the animals was a bonus for us! Super friendly cats, donkeys, and sheep with armadillo and deer sightings. We highly recommend staying here and hope to come back to try the other homes on site soon.

Gladheart is the Place to Stay!

Gladheart is the place to stay! It was so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Fredericksburg Main St. but also being super close to everything as well. Our stay was perfect to celebrate an anniversary getaway, and we are already talking about staying at the other places on property!

Absolutely Amazing!

This place is absolutely amazing! My daughter and I had such a wonderful time, the Henley was extremely clean, modern, accommodating for all of our needs inside and outside! We saw rabbits, deer, goats, sheep, donkeys and had a little encounter with them all! Amer was very accommodating and prompt with all of my communication! Matt the maintenance man was so very helpful, pleasant to talk to you, and helpful. Just a few short miles and you are on Main Street in Fredericksburg for shopping, eateries, I bought some fabulous turquoise from a local jeweler! We will definitely return for numerous visits to come!

Henley was Perfection!

The Henley was perfection! Every detail has been carefully considered! Clean, well maintained, supplied with anything you would need. The host was so considerate and prompt with any communications. My husband was a little concerned before we got there that the loft/bed area would be hot/stuffy, but it was NOT! The air conditioner/air circulation was amazing! The home was perfectly cool the entire time! Aside from the home itself, the entire property is amazing! The game room, the trails, the cute animals, the fun photo op areas...it’s impossible not to fall in love with this spot. A 10 minute drive to the Main Street of Fredericksburg and close to anything you would need! We fell in love and plan to come back as often as we can! The entire Gladheart property is fantastic!

Can’t Say Enough Great Things about Henley!

We can’t say enough great things about this tiny house. The pictures didn’t do it justice— it’s gorgeous in person as well. It was more spacious than we expected. The location was perfect— far enough out of town to enjoy peace and quiet, but close enough to go back and forth if needed. We enjoyed sitting by the fire with the kitties, being greeted We can’t say enough great things about this tiny house. The pictures didn’t do it justice— it’s gorgeous in person as well.

We enjoyed sitting by the fire with the kitties, being greeted by the friendly donkeys, and watching the sheep graze when they came right up to our fence.

Amazing Stay...Definitely Home Away from Home

Amazing stay, definitely home away from home. Location is perfect, short drive to and from downtown Fredericksburg. Tiny home has everything you can possibly need. Definitely recommend the stay! Will be back when the time allows.

Such a Great Find!

Such a great find! The location was great and the perfext distance outside of town. Between the sunsets, pastures with cattle, sheep, deer, rabbits, birds and the property cats to watch all the time, it was so beautiful and relaxing. Such a neat drive from the point you exit off the highway. When you exit you drive by the river then turn off to what feels like a rustic ghost town. As we drove on back, the properties on each side of us had sheep, donkeys, goats, horses, chickens, cows, cats, and alpacas(or lama?). There is a little pond with a walking trail on the property. The Henley is also right next to a gameroom with more games than I can probably remember. Although there are other rentals on the property, the owners went out of their way to make the tiny house feel secluded. Hot tub, gas fire pit (we brought our own skewers and goodies to make smores), BBQ grill, picnic table, corn hole game, outdoor lighting and deck. Inside the place is clean. And even though it is modern, it is cozy and inviting. The shower has great hot water (I mention this because other places do not). The kitchen was lacking nothing from what we could tell. Fridge was even a good size and controlled the temp of our food well. I hate when there is a great kitchen but no fridge to put food in or the fridge freezes your food. The owner sent us an email to make sure all went well the first night and responded to any questions very quickly. I also should add that this was one of the very fewfamikly friendly places we found in Fredericksburg. Most did not allow kids under 12. Have already recommended the Henley to friends!

Great getaway!

This place is perfect for a getaway from the big city. A lot of different animals and a perfect view of the stars at night. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
