About Sandy Street
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.
Sandy Street purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Sandy Street chose New Ulm
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.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
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.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We had a great time and was so appreciative of the hospitality from Lou and Sandy. Word of advise... be ready to relax. It has been a long time since we really just did nothing. Our 20 year old son fell in love with taking to golf cart and just touring the property. The mornings are a must see. Have camera ready. We hope to stay again.
Thank you, Terri,
Your family is a perfect fit for our ranch. Those who value peace, tranquility and nature will always be welcome here. We look forward to your return.
Great outdoor retreat!
Had a great time in the lake, canoeing and swimming and kayaking around. My niece and nephew LOVED the animals—the donkeys and horses were very friendly with a 2 year old petting them. It was very relaxing!
We did have a bit of a hard time sleeping in a garage apartment as the air conditioner is quite loud, but it was certainly cool enough, so that was nice! And, the point of the place is the outdoor space, which really was perfect for us!
super family vacation spot
this was our third time at the Blue House and we intend to go every year, The house and separate quarters are very comfortable, clean and well stocked with essentials. The lake offers fishing swimming boating. Our son brought his jet ski and everyone had a blast riding that. Owners are great. Highly recommend this place
The Blue House was the perfect city escape
We had a wonderful time at the Blue House. It was exactly what we needed to escape for the weekend. We will definitely be back, thank you!
Idyllic natural and quiet beauty
Stars at night, cool and refreshing lake during the day, amply supplied kitchen and home for all your needs. This was an ideal family gathering point for our celebration of my son's college graduation.
The Blue House is an awesome place for a true getaway. The property is special with the lake and views from every window. The bird and horses, deer, ducks, turtles ,cows all so much fun.A place for a quiet retreat. House had everything you need. Thank you so much for sharing your special place with us.
So glad you had a good time. Sorry about the ac. Please let us know if you have a problem and we will address it. Sandy
