Peaches, pecans, beer gardens and vineyards: Welcome to eclectic Fredericksburg. An hour from Austin, this hospitable town was settled by German immigrants in the 1840s, and proves an anomaly in the land of longhorns. With more than 40 wineries spread across the surrounding Texas Hill Country, this area has been instrumental in the evolution of the Texas wine industry, which came to a halt with Prohibition and did not resurrect until the 1970s. Our bed-and-breakfast lodging of choice here is Settlers Crossing, a 35-acre property home to just seven historic guest cottages. The 1865 Pioneer Log Cabin is charming and features its own restored wine cellar and 40-foot-long stone porch. The resident donkey named Brighty enhances these unique accommodations dating back to the 1780s.
