About the owner: Retired professionals live across the lake on the property and offer on site assistance. Owners are enjoying a second career as ranchers and stewards of the land.
Why the Owner Chose New Ulm, TX, USA:
If you want to get away from the city for a week, or weekend, this is the place. Cottage sits within 100+ acre ranch, surrounded by game fence, enclosing exotic deer and cattle. Beautiful skies and trees during the day. Unlimited stars at night.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Explore within 25 miles: RoundTop antiques, Historic Columbus, New Ulm, Cat Spring and LaGrange. Don't miss the Painted Churches tour near Schulenberg. Easy access to I-10 and Metropolitan KATY/Houston area. However, most guests prefer to stay home, home on the ranch, where the deer and the antelope play.
