Rustic to say the least

  • 3 of 5

While the cottage had some charm, the location was the saving grace! On a positive, the location to getting around town was awesome. Tom, the owner/manager was very responsive to questions and booking. On the downside, the cottage had a musty, moldy smell that hit me when we first walked in the door. The air conditioner had a minimum setting of 72 or it would freeze up. This made for some warm nights. The couches seemed to have been over used one too many times and sagged to no end. The full sized bed was not in any better shape. After three nights my back was toast! As for the river - it was a beautiful setting for sure! However, getting in/out of the river was trickier. There was no ladder and the retaining wall was in very bad shape. Luckily my husband Macgyvered a ladder using a sling from his truck - otherwise I have no idea how one would enter or leave the river. There was a nice deck area down close to the river that had chairs and loungers. Overall we loved the location, but would have enjoyed it more if there were some fixes made to the furnishings and access to the river.

Owner's Response: We have been in the vacation rental business in New Braunfels since 1994 and encourage all of our guests to communicate with us regarding any issues or concerns they may encounter while staying in any of our 24 properties. We thank this guest for letting us know about the bedding,we have made some replacements. As for the HVAC, in the name of energy conservation we request that the thermostats in all of our properteis are kept above 72. The waterfront of this property is half bulkheaded and half natural. We appoligize for the inconveniece, but we are in the process of rebuilding the bulkhead portion. You can jump in the water here and use our ladder on our property next door to exit the river. When our guests communicate with us while they are staying with us we do respond to any issues they may be having and try to remdy or explain the situation to them. We thank this guest again for staying with us and hope they will consider our properties on their next visit to New Braunfels.
