Magical

Ethereal setting for any occasion, weddings, especially. So romantic and memory making! All the special touches are breathtaking. Imagine the time and thought that went into making it so naturally appealing!

Amazing transformation

Traditional elegance in a Hill Country venue with a background of native gardens. It is a well-thought out facility with interesting nooks and crannies. Truly unique.

Old World Charm

Gilbriar Gazebo simply draws you in with it’s old world charm and Texas Hill Country spaciousness and flair. Only a visit will tell you what you need to know about this outstanding special events venue and it’s gracious owner. Having attended several events here, I have found that Gilbriar is not just a ‘venue’. Gilbriar is an experience. It is also a comfortably beautiful place to celebrate–anything!! Changing rooms and the kitchen are generous in space and exquisite in detail. Beauty and comfort belie function in the design of the entirety of Gilbriar. At Gilbriar Gazebo, no stone has been left unturned in combining beauty, ambience, and comfort in the creation of Gilbriar Gazebo.

The covered gazebo is surrounded by Texas Hill Country open spaces and beautiful Texas native plant gardens. There are no city sounds here! Gilbriar is a wonderful place to celebrate, to explore, and to experience. Gilbriar will help you create memories in your heart that your mind will never forget!!

Great location to host your event!

What a great venue for our event! Paula Stone was super to work with and our event (welcoming our new Executive Director and saying farewell to the current Executive Director) was a huge success! The grounds are beautiful with lots of attention to detail. Great facility for indoor and outdoor gatherings, with plenty of parking! Thanks, Paula, for your help to make our event such a great success!

Hill Country Charm

A picture perfect venue with a beautiful garden backdrop. The Gilbriar Gazebo is spacious and well laid out with plenty of room for a wide variety of events. The location is great; secluded without being far away from town. The interior of the barn is neutral, allowing for a wide range of decorating styles and color palettes. The simple, elegant furnishings are a wonderful compliment to the space. A unique blend of old and new, it’s a wonderful center to hold an event. Paula has been a pleasure to work with, which is just icing on the cake!

Best of Hill Country casual elegance

A unique and beautiful venue suitable for many functions. Perfect for weddings or wedding receptions or both. Ideal for corporate meetings. Lovely places such as the bride’s dressing room will surprise you. Kitchen built with caterers in mind, with convenient outside entrance. Ample parking. Outside areas beautifully landscaped with Texas natives. Close in to Fredericksburg, but seems way out in the country. Management friendly, professional and helpful. Highly recommend. The best Hill Country restoration with environmentally sound practices.

Hill Country Farm Meets Industrial Chic

Paula has used her designer eye to create a unique facility where the Hill Country farm meets industrial chic with hints of the local German heritage. The Barn facility is a great open venue that allows for anything from dinner to dancing. The gazebo is an artistic space that provides functional cover with cosmic elegance. The gardens finish off the setting with natural beauty and wholesome flair. Although the location is right on the edge of town with convenient access, you feel like you are immersed in the local country side. Our local club has used the facility for our semi-annual social gatherings, and we always love the venue. There is nothing like it in Fredericksburg!

Great Party Venue

We had our organization’s Christmas party at The Gazebo last year and it was a fabulous location–so much so that we are having it there again this year. We loved it! There is plenty of room and it’s comfortable and attractive. And the landscaping is gorgeous.

Warm elegance

Gilbriar is the kind of place one can feel elegant but at the same time feel warm and cozy. It is a great place for an event dinner, a wedding and a wedding reception, or for a family to gather for a family reunion. Plenty of restroom space. Great kitchen! Sitting/reception area before the main open space. A fabulously restored barn!

A charming setting for any event

I’ve had the pleasure to party here twice in the past year, winter and spring. The facility has that Hill Country charm – in abundance – that brought so many of us here to play and live. It is sized and planned to make it easy to socialize, eat, dance, whatever the group wants to do. The native plant landscaping is gorgeous and fits the place perfectly. Everyone in our two events had a wonderful time and all look forward to the next party!

Unique farmstead and gorgeous gardens

This venue is so unique in its design and thoughtful repurposing of new and vintage farm materials. It is so welcoming and provides plenty of space and privacy for any kind of event. The barn is comfortable and the interior colors will compliment any color scheme the users choose. The kitchen is spacious and user friendly for party prep. And the gardens and gazebo – just gorgeous. The abundant spring and fall blooming landscape forces you to stop and drink in the beauty. Relaxing! My favorite aspect of our event was the rising moon over the gazebo and the soft sounds of a couple friendly goats. Such a great place that out shines all the other cookie-cutter venues around.

Absolutely beautiful

This venue is gorgeous . The gazebo outside is a great touch especially on those hot summer days. The owner Paula has thought of everything in order to make this venue perfect for your special day. I like that the chairs and tables are included because anywhere else you would have to rent them! Also i like how there is enough parking for everyone in the back so you can’t see the cars. Plenty of room to get ready for the Bride and the Groom. Overall , I LOVE the venue and it would be perfect for my special day.

Attended three functions here, and it’s fabulous!!!

Fredericksburg, TX is a popular and beautiful place to have any kind of event. Of all the venues we checked out, this is BY FAR the best!! It’s a beautiful building, recently built, with every convenience a client could ask for. The property has indoor/outdoor possibilities for all types of functions.

It truly is the perfect place for an indoor event, with the large open gathering room, auxillary rooms for brides, grooms, the elderly or children.

Can’t forget the facility has a gorgeous outdoor venue space that is beautiful and well landscaped, which can extend the inside to the outside for all attendees. Highly recommend the Gilbriar Gazebo for your next event.

Versatile and photogenic venue

Paula Stone has a unique eye for detail, and her professional background for design is on full display at Gilbriar Gazebo. A strikingly beautiful venue that is both modern, rustic, simple and versatile, Gilbriar is unlike any other in the Hill Country. I have photographed at many wedding venues, and this facility is one-of-a-kind. Beautifully landscaped, blooming gardens, dedicated facilities for Bride and Groom, a large reception hall, open pasture, and of course the dome pavilion… These elements create many wonderful opportunities to photograph special events, weddings, anniversary parties.

Awesome Facility for Weddings

I just had the opportunity to tour this venue. It was absolutely awesome!! Having been a Wedding Coordinator for 19 years, I can say that this facility has it all covered!! There are many amenities included in the pricing that so many venues do not take care of. This is a perfect place for a Hill Country wedding! A must see!!!

Ideal spot for a Hill Country wedding!

This is a great spot for a Hill Country wedding under the stars or under the gazebo in the beautiful gardens. The space is not only lovely but very well designed/planned to allow you to enjoy your special event with minimal effort.

Beautiful place!

Great place!  Spacious, comfortable and unique!  Fabulous gazebo, like nothing I’ve ever seen before, very elegant. Pretty gardens too.

I like Gilbriar Gazebo

It feels good!  It has a luminous quality that pleases.
It’s spacious, comfortable and intimate all at once.
It’s easy to set up and take down. Dance under
the Gazebo and the stars or be cool and refreshed
inside. It is just right!

Open House

My visit to the Gilbriar Gazebo had me asking: What is special about this venue? The ease for a large number of people to easily socialize. A large historic barn with open spaces and the huge gazebo surrounded by beautiful flowers and shrubs. You are invited to mingle, roam and feel at home.
