Charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Pet and kid friendly. Fantastice views.
The Bunkhouse is one of 4 vacation rentals on a 60 acre property of rolling hills on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. The house sits on top of one of the highest hills in the area so from there you have fantastic views of the countryside. Just outside the yard fence cows are grazing. Come sit on the porch swing and enjoy the fresh air and ever-present breezes. Surrounding the house are ancient live oaks which have lived there since before the German immigrants who settled the area arrived in the mid 1800's. And even though you are in the quiet of the country it is only a few minutes to the towns of New Braunfels, Seguin or San Marcos. All three offer visitors a variety of attractions plus many restaurants, shops and recreational opportunities. And in just about 30 to 45 minutes you can drive to San Antonio or Austin and enjoy all that those cities have to offer.
The house has 2 bedrooms each with a queen bed plus there is a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. The kitchen and living/dining areas provide a nice open space to gather. There is a separate utility room with washer and dryer. On the wrap-around porch are picnic tables, chairs and a porch swing. A charcoal grill is provided. A small fenced yard is a good place for your pets or children to play. But you can also enjoy the ample space outside the yard fence!

About Sherman and Joy Schlichting
This property has been in our family since the mid 1800s when our German ancestors came to Texas seeking a better life. They settled in these hills and grew cotton, various other crops, cattle and kids. Lots of things have changed since then but one thing has not - our love for this place! Joy grew up in The Farmhouse on top of the hill. The Bunkhouse was once a detached garage. We moved The Cabin and Opa's Haus onto the property and restored them. We are now trying to restore the land. We have planted several acres with native grasses and other native species in an attempt to help the land heal from years of use. Our hope is that we will provide a habitat for some species of wildlife that have been driven into near extinction. We also enjoy providing a place where families can spend time together in a quiet space free from the hustle and bustle of city life. So come enjoy the country!

Country relaxation at its best
What a beautiful property! The home we stayed in was perfect for a family of three and our two dogs, but could easily fit more. Watching the cows come graze at sunset was a highlight for our three-year-old. Very clean and well-cared-for--will be back again!
Tranquil Vacation Rental
Dear Joy and Sherman,
Our stay on your property exceeded our expectations! We found the Bunkhouse very peaceful, inviting with all the comforts of home! We loved having early morning coffee outside with the cows. Our dogs enjoyed hiking up and down the driveway for exercise. We were so close to the San Marcos outlets and ran over to Lockhart for some good BBQ! We will certainly be back! Thank you! Joan and Tim
Bunkhouse new braunfels
Bunkhouse was perfect for our stay- clean, well stocked and so comfortable- we enjoyed walking down the road in the late afternoon and sitting on the back porch watching the cows- very relaxing - beds were just right- will stay again when we travel to new braunfels!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back and experience other seasons of the year. And we have 3 other houses on the property if you should ever need larger accommodations
100% worth every penny
We are from Houston and took our Minnesota visitors here to go floating. We had an amazing experience. Perfect place for a dog to run and sniff! Good food all over and beautiful scenery. 100% will be back next fall!
Perfect weekend getaway!
House was perfect for 4 adults! We had a great time! Distance to Gruene area was not far. We all had a nice time.
Perfect Cozy Cabin!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Bunkhouse. We enjoyed watching the livestock from the back porch! The house was so cute & cozy and had all the amenities needed! We would definitely stay here again.
Everyone likes the cows just across the yard fence. We have put them and the birds in charge of entertainment!
