About the Property
2/ 2.5 with 2 balconies overlooking The Comal River; Ideal location.
Enjoy this luxurious and comfortable condo that is conveniently located on the Comal River, across the street from Schlitterbahn and within walking distance of Historic Downtown New Braunfels. The Hill Country décor with Saltillo tile floors throughout make this property charmingly unique with a southwestern influence. It’s part cowboy, part Indian and part German.
The Float Inn is equipped with a digital lock that is reprogrammed for each guest to provide every one with the highest level of security. As a guest, you can arrive at your convenience, let yourself in with the code and do so without having to keep up with keys! It is a major plus when you are on the river tubing all day long.
Prepare a gourmet meal in the upscale kitchen that has been generously furnished for cooking with top of the line appliances and equipment. The kitchen opens up into the bar and dining room that comfortably seats 6 at the table and 3 at the bar. The kitchen has a wine refrigerator and high efficiency front loading washer and dryer for your convenience. Watch cable TV on a large 46' flat screen from the comfort of two leather couches. Step out onto the balcony to take in the pristine beauty of the spring fed Comal River that stays a constant 72 degrees year round. The outdoor ceiling fan and beautiful Teak outdoor furniture will enhance your enjoyment.
Tucked away upstairs are the master and guest bedrooms for privacy and rest. The upstairs features vaulted ceilings and skylights for added space and natural light. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a large flat screen TV.
Drink your morning coffee while watching the resident birds, deer and other wildlife from the private 3rd floor balcony located off of the spacious master suite with a king size bed. The master bath has a separate shower and tub.
Curl up in the guest room on one of two full-sized beds with reading lamps and a good book. The combination tub/shower is separate from the sink and dressing area for privacy and added convenience.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- THE FLOAT INN and THE FLOAT INN 2 are located next door to each other and would be wonderful for a group of 8-16 people. They share the same front door entry landing, are the same floor plan and have access to a shared balcony. Both have access to tubing outfitters that park across the street to pick up tubers from the last public exit. If you prefer, you can bring your own inner tubes and take an easy float that is suitable for children by putting in at the Garden Street Bridge, which is across the street from the complex. It will take about 30 minutes to float down to the private take out for your condo. THE FLOAT INN and THE FLOAT INN 2 are both under my management. If either one of these properties are not available or if you would like to look at other properties in the New Braunfels area, please feel free to contact me. I also manage several other condos and houses, and would love to find the perfect place...moreless

"The Float Inn" is the ideal location to enjoy the pristine Comal River, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and all of the amenities that historic downtown New Braunfels has to offer. It is all within walking distance.
"Tubing" is the favorite water activity on The Comal and Guadalupe Rivers for both locals and visitors. Schlitterbahn was voted “most favorite” waterpark in the U.S. and is right across the street from the condo!
Take a stroll downtown to have a strudel from Naegelin's, the oldest bakery in Texas. Buy a souvenir at Henne's, the oldest hardware store in Texas. Take a walking tour, a ghost tour or visit the Sophienburg Museum and learn about the history of The Early Settlers of New Braunfels. Listen to live music and entertainment at the downtown historic Phoenix "chili parlor" and saloon or The Brauntex Theater. Step into the many one-of-a-kind pubs or restaurants to rest and refuel.
Enjoy shopping for antiques, clothing, and gifts. The Farmer's Market is every Saturday morning and features organic and local produce, specialty food items and gift booths.
Gruene (pronounced green) is on the National Registry as a historic destination. Gruene Hall is the oldest dance hall in Texas. Listen to live music nightly and see where music greats like Willie Nelson, George Strait and Lyle Lovett started out and still play today.
Visit nearby Landa Park to ride the miniature train, wade in the spring fed pool, hike Panther Canyon, visit the Founder's Oak that dates back to the 1700's, rent a paddleboat, listen to a free evening concert on the dance slab, and have a picnic.
Take the scenic drive up River Road to Canyon Lake. Spend the day shopping at the San Marcos Outlet Mall. Go spelunking at Natural Bridge Caverns. Tour The Alamo, The River Walk, Sea World and Historic Mission Trails in San Antonio. Visit Austin's State Capitol and the main campus of The University of Texas. Austin's famous 6th Street has made it the "Live Music Capital of the World."
All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you stay at "The Float Inn.” You are in the ideal location to explore the Hill Country of Central Texas. There is so much to do that you will have to keep coming back!
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: The Float Inn is managed by New Braunfels native Suzanne with AAA River Resort Rental. I know New Braunfels and the surrounding area and want to help you make the most of your visit to the Hill Country. I am available to answer any of your questions and help you plan a vacation you'll never forget. Schlitterbahn is a huge attraction and a great time, but there is much more to do and see here. I don't just want you to have a place to stay...I want to help you plan a great visit to the 'sweet spots' of the hill country.
Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels, TX, USA:
The condo is a premiere property in a beautiful resort complex on the Comal River. It is so beautiful here. You are in the best location on the river, right across the street from Schlitterbahn and just a couple blocks away from downtown. New Braunfels is a resort area offering all of the advantages of a small town along with the amenities of a large city. It is centrally located in the heart of the Hill Country with easy access to Austin, San Marcos and San Antonio. If you don't feel like cooking, there are numerous eating establishments to choose from or you have the option of picking up some groceries at one of the 4 grocery stores in town (big or small) that are all located within 5 minutes of the condo and staying in. New Braunfels offers activities that appeal to all ages. There is a festival almost every weekend. One of my favorites is "Wurstfest" held each November for the 10-day celebration of German beer, sausage, music, and dancing.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This condo is one of the nicest units available, and has the best view of The Comal River. This unit is ideal for families and couples. It is just steps away from the last public river exit and Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Camp Warneke has its own private river exit. It is the best location for enjoying The Comal River, New Braunfels and The Texas Hill Country!
