Having fun and just relaxing at this charming old home.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 19, 2015

We headed out to the country to enjoy some solitude and bask in nature. We bears needed to reconnect with our naturalistic natures and The Yellow Yaus in Gruene was the perfect hideaway. The 106-year-old house with polished wooden floors and open kitchen and living room exuded coziness. Small, delicate touches such as paintings depicting the town’s favorite spots and antique ornaments tickled our senses with delight. The backyard patio was a favorite spot to sit and talk or just relax. The spacious bedrooms beckoned to us to tuck in, as bears usually do, but we had to explore. The town’s center was only a few minutes’ walk and along the way, we took in the appealing sights. We saw antique shops with trinkets and souvenirs to remember our stay, local restaurants housed in pristine historic buildings, and outside festivals with people strolling around mingling, relishing the last days of summer. We bears immersed ourselves in the culture of relaxation. Not a care in the world was a strong ambience in the air that we felt as well. The friendliness of the owner, Tom, who came personally to recommend spots to explore, made us feel that we were right at home. With heavy hearts our wonderful stay came to an end, but we enjoyed it immensely. So too bad, Goldilocks, we bears plan to go back. Don’t get too comfortable.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

NMSU Zeta Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this for 10 of my sorority sisters and myself. It was perfect for a girls getaway. 4 Days in Gruene, TX and the Yellow Haus with Annabelle's Suite was more than we expected. Plenty of room, great backyard, perfect atmosphere. Looking forward to getting together with the girls again and making this an annual event.

Vacation to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was truly one to remember! Our family of eight plus my sister and her grandson spent a relaxing week tubing, shopping, eating and socializing with the perfect "home base" (Gruene's Yellow Haus). The children LOVED the fenced in back yard and the big boys played horseshoes, washers and grilled up a storm. We were in walking distance of wonderful shops, a winery and awesome food and music. The house was well furnished with comforts of home and we lacked for nothing! We will definitely be back to this little slice of paradise in Texas!

What a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just spend a great weekend celebrating my husband's 50th birthday at the Yellow Haus and Annabel's Suite. The house is lovely - just like in the pictures and even nicer than we expected. Six couples slept comfortably, and walked to shopping, swimming in the river, dining and great shows at Gruene Hall both nights. The kitchen had everything we needed for meals, and we enjoyed relaxing on the back patio and front porch as well. The owners were accessible for questions and very helpful. We will add this to our list of great experiences with VRBO properties. I hope to be back next year!

Yellow Haus review

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Yellow Haus was wonderful! There was plenty of room for all 12 of us without feeling cramped and the house itself was very accommodating. Everything we needed was there. We loved the short walk to downtown Gruene for dinner. Overall it was a great place to stay!

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of Moms/Friends who love to float the river each year at the end of August when our kids go back to school. The Yellow Haus was perfect for us! Plenty of room, very nice amenities and we could walk right in to Gruene to go to the wineries, shops and restaurants. We were literally just down the road. It was a perfect place to spend a few days. Gruenes Yellow Haus will be our choice for next years trip!
