Sundance Studio is spacious and perfect for 2 while comfortably sleeping up to 4 people. Our most luxurious accommodation and well decorated throughout, it’s a must for a romantic rendezvous destination! Inside you will find a brand new kitchen, a king size bed with memory foam mattress and luxury linens and an open flow living area in a studio setting. It offers you opulent decorations and a peaceful tranquil inspired space. 

But the absolutely amazing bathroom will leave you speechless. A huge 2-person bathtub and shower with rain head, body sprays and individual showerheads all controlled at your desire with a heated towel rack to wrap things up! 

We didn’t stop inside either, once you step out onto the marvelous deck you can choose your destination! Large hot tub, dining outdoors, relaxing at the seating areas, lounging in the sun or simply napping in the outdoor bed, you will be able to breath in the fresh air and soak in stunning views.

Highly Recommend

Very nice dwelling with wonderful country view of hummingbirds, jack rabbits, deer, cows, etc. The shower was amazing and we very much enjoyed the hot tub outside. Highly recommend.

Simply Perfect!

This beautiful location is absolutely perfect for a quiet, relaxing get away. It is so peaceful to sit outside on the variety of chairs/lounges. The hot tub was great with plenty of hot water and lots of jets. The inside of the home is amazing; beautifully decorated and very high-tech. Just about everything you can think of in the kitchen. The bathroom is especially astounding with the most amazing shower I have ever seen. Simply perfect! I would absolutely stay there again.

Beautiful and peaceful. You will absolutely fall in love with this place. Already planning a return trip. Enjoyed the cabin, game room, scenery, and the animals.

The studio is just removed enough to offer some rural recovery time, but not so much that town, grocery and starting points are more than a few minutes away. We loved the covered porch and hot tub, and enjoyed being able to sit outside and see the stars. The livestock were a couple pastures away during our visit, but we got to see some new lambs and experience a temporary sheep blockade coming home one night. The kitchen has all the basics (bring your spices and condiments) and the wifi works well enough. Be cautious with the shower drain -- it isn't up to the task of multiple fixtures being in use. You'll figure it out quickly though. Take a soak in the tub -- it is luxurious. There is a second rental next door, making this a great option for extended family or friends, but still having a solo space.

We Will Definitely be Returning!

Secluded but still close to town. The huge bathtub and the walk in shower were amazing. We enjoyed gazing at the stars from the privacy of the hot tub and rinsing off in the outdoor shower. A perfect way for us to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. We will definitely be returning.

The House and Property Had Everything We Were Looking For

The house and property had everything we were looking for a relaxing weekend and more-hot tub, hammocks, fire pit, BBQ, mini walking trails, front porch rockers. Driving up to the property we got to meet our friendly sheep and llama neighbors. The bed was extremely comfortable. The location was a short few min drive outside of town. Was looking at a property in town and so happy I choose this place. I can’t say enough good things. Dawn the property manager was super hospitable and responsive. I will recommend to all our friends looking for a romantic getaway, family retreat, or good time with friends. One thing to know- there are two cabins right next to each other but still private (a one bedroom and a three bedroom).

This Vacation will be Hard to Beat!

Just minutes outside of Fredericksburg but the privacy and views are worth not being able to walk to Main Street. We were there 3 nights and didn’t even get through all the accommodations provided. It was so much more than we even expected. Did I mention there are lamas and donkeys and goats?! 😍 We had an amazing trip. Thank you so much! This vacation will be hard to beat.

This Place was Incredible!

This place was incredible! My wife and I had a great time in this place. It was secluded but still had plenty of access to the town. Plus, the hot tub is awesome!

Better than we expected!

Dawn’s Airbnb was better than we expected! Such a stylish, cute place. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Check in and out was very easy. The location was great for being a quick 5-10 min drive yet feeling like you are off the beaten path. Would definitely love to stay again.
