I am whipping this blog post out after several people requested the link for the Airbnb in which my husband and I stayed this weekend for our 7 year anniversary. Reasons I suspect it was popular:
A) It is essentially a treehouse.
B) During these “uncertain times,” it is a remote and super cool location where you can relax and getaway from crowded places.
Daniel and I stayed for two nights. The treehouse is located 10 minutes from Fredericksburg main street, which seems to be the only spot for grabbing food. Saturday night we did curbside pick up at Hondo’s, which was really tasty. I got the goat cheese salad and Daniel had a portobello burger. Sunday night we had Sozial Haus for pizza. The pizza was cold, but the spinach dip was great!
Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, we did not walk around main street or visit any wineries (what Fredericksburg is known for) during this visit. In a crowd of 30 people, I’d guess that about 5 of those people had masks on. This was troubling. So in our car and Airbnb we stayed.
Speaking of our car, I need to give a massive shout out. For this trip, Daniel and I got to drive a Mazda CX-30. I love my mom-mobile, but it was nice to zip around in the CX-30. It was perfect for our luggage and cooler, and took the hill country curves beautifully. I am always impressed with Mazda’s Blind Spot Monitoring, but this was the first time we’ve had a Mazda with Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go. It made sure we maintained a safe following distance and slowed the car down if the car ahead of us changed speeds and got too close. It was so cool!! Along with the other snazzy safety features (lane detection, etc), the cozy interior and sleek sound system made the 4 hour drive pretty heavenly.
We brought coffee (I tried these almond milk lattes and they truly hit the spot first thing in the morning), fruit, drinks, a couple snack trays (cheese and veggies), Julio’s chips (bc YASSS), and kale salad from HEB.
The fruit was perfect for breakfast, the salad for lunch, and then we had a big dinner that we picked up in town (as previously mentioned). Other than that we mostly caught up on reading, took photographs, played cards, and had a bubble bath in the outdoor tub downstairs. In our bathing suits! Because although the area is pretty secluded, it’s actually in a little cul-de-sac of treehouses, so I wasn’t about to be outside in all nekkid. 😛
I stole that word from Jessica Simpson because that’s what I read this weekend! Open Book was surprisingly good!
Anyway, it was an uneventful, yet perfect trip. I’m glad I didn’t follow my initial freak out and cancel. 🙂
