                        We hosted our annual family reunion at Silver Haus and had a great time once we understood how to set the thermostats for the air conditioners. Be sure to ask the owner how to do this and you will really enjoy your stay!

                        My recent stay at the Silver Haus in San Marcos was fabulous. The location of the home is perfectly nestled in a quiet neighborhood in the middle of town. The proximity to restaurants, shopping and the San Marcos square is phenomenal. We were also a short drive from Gruene, Wonderland, and New Braunfels. The house itself is one of kind. The finishes and decorations are perfect and the house is huge! The accomodations and amenities that the homeowners had prepared for our stay were amazing. We will definetely stay there again and look forward to our next trip to the San Marcos Silver Haus!!!

                        The home was spacious and clean with space for a large group to find a little quiet time, but still be together. Dinner around the round table was awesome, a great place for eating and sharing bodacious stories. The fire pit and horseshoes were great fun in the cool evenings. I would definitely recommend this home for family reunions; we sure enjoyed it.

                        We arrived to find everything we needed for a great extended weekend. We grilled and hung out by the fire pit 2 of the 4 nights. We enjoyed the nightlife of "The Square" and floated the San Marcos River on 2 different days! It was very convient to Texas State Tubes. We participated in the Dry Comal Creek 10th Annual Order of the Purple Foot Grape Stomp. We have done this event for the past 5 years and will now only be staying at the "Silver Haus" when we go!

                        Rented this house for a weekend getaway with friends from the Houston area and several TSU alums. The house had everything we needed and plenty of space for both couples and singles to sleep. The house was very centrally located for enjoying all that San Marcos has to offer, and the owner was able to recommend many attractions to enjoy. We enjoyed staying in the beautifully decorated house and would definitely return to stay another weekend. Thank you so much for letting us rent your house!

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We live in Katy, and enjoy spending our weekends in the hill country. We moved this house from Tarrytown in Austin and had it put back together at its current location. We love spending all our free time here and wanted to share our home with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
