Meet the Owners

Before moving to Fredericksburg and buying the Magnolia House, we had corporate careers in the high tech industry in sales and marketing. We lived in the Dallas area and traveled extensively for business and pleasure. Yes, we were “Road Warriors” for many years. As experienced business travelers we developed an appreciation for great service, convenience and those extra touches that made trips away from home more enjoyable.

When traveling for pleasure, we wanted to experience a different type of travel and began staying in Bed & Breakfasts. We always met fascinating people from all walks of life and got great tips from the Innkeepers on what to do and see on our travels. The great food, lovely accommodations and amenities provided by the B&Bs were always a memorable part of our leisure travel.

When looking for a second career, it was a natural choice for us to move into the Bed & Breakfast lifestyle. Our love of people, great food and wine turned into a passion for striving to provide our guests with a retreat from the hectic pace of life. Our goal is to create a relaxing environment for those who need a break from their daily routines. It turns out Fredericksburg is the perfect location for a getaway with so many fun things to do and see.

Fredericksburg is a wonderful town and we have enjoyed getting actively involved in the community. There are great restaurants, art galleries, shops, museums, state parks and so much more. In addition to our love of food and wine, we enjoy outdoor activities including cycling, hiking, gardening, golf, salt- water fishing and snow skiing.

We love living in the Texas Hill Country and look forward to sharing it with you!
