The WWII-Themed Bed And Breakfast That Texas History Buffs Will Absolutely Love
While important in documenting important events, history books don’t always do the most justice. Instead of relying on written word and your imagination, what if there was a place right here in Texas that offered a firsthand look into what life was like during WWII? That’s exactly what the Hangar Hotel in Fredericksburg is all about, and just one night here is a one-way ticket back to the world’s most tumultuous decade.
Modeled after WWII hangars, this unique hotel is loved by aviation and war history enthusiasts everywhere. Booking a room here is your boarding pass onto an unforgettable journey back in time.
All the interior decor is also reflective of the iconic time period. Custom-made leather chairs and a dark mahogany concierge desk let guests check into a highly revered bygone era.
Each one of the fifty rooms has antiquated furnishings. Sleigh beds with rattan inserts, princess phones, and old photographs create an authentic wartime atmosphere.
An observation deck provides unparalleled views of take-offs and landings at the nearby Gillespie County Airport. The hotel also boasts a room full of several vintage planes.
Pretend you're a VIP (very important pilot, that is) and relax in the Officers' Club. With a fireplace, grand piano, full bar, and pool table, it's the perfect place to sip a little bubbly and meet fellow aircraft lovers.
Next door, the Airport Diner serves breakfast and lunch to hungry travelers. There's nothing like a hearty, home-cooked meal after navigating the skies.
A fully-functional 1946 North American Navion and pinup girl billboard make the perfect photo-op to commemorate your stay. The plane was constructed by the same company that built P-51 Mustangs!
You'll find the Hangar Hotel at 155 Airport Rd, Fredericksburg, TX 78624. Get ready to take off on an unforgettable adventure through the world's most tumultuous decade.
