Farm House Bed & Breakfast

Farm House B&BHouseLocated in Fredericksburg, the Farm House Bed & Breakfast (B&B) offers comfort, casual enjoyment and a chance to experience a real working farm. Architectural styling of the late Victorian period was used when the Farm House was built at the turn of the century.

Restoration of the Farm House B&B began in 1993, when it was bought by the Engelbrecht family. They spent five years restoring the home and turning it into the Farm House B&B. In September 1998, the Farm House B&B hosted its first customers. There are five guest rooms at the B&B, each decorated uniquely to reflect the owner’s eclectic interests. During a stay at the Farm House B&B, activities such as fishing in the farm pond to hiking on the adjoining Plum Creek Nature Trail are available. The Red Barn Dairy gives guests the chance to watch the birth of a baby calf or cows being milked. Goats, chickens, peacocks, llamas, Jacob sheep, cats and two dogs all make up the unique experience of the Farm House B&B.

Other features include The Engelbrecht Family Winery and Vineyards and the Farm House Antique Shop. In 2004, the first round of grapes, fruit trees, red raspberry and blueberry bushes were started. The Engelbrechts continued planting and will be making wine by the time summer and fall roll around. The Farm House B&B is planning a Grape Stomp for August 2006. Anyone who wants to prune, plant or pick grapes is welcome to help!

The Farm House Antique Shop showcases beautiful oak, walnut and pine furniture. It is located in a remodeled farm shed right across from the B&B. Shop hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Farm House B&B is on US Hwy 18 East at 2866 270th St.
