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.

Our family enjoyed Easter weekend at The Blue House and it could not have been more perfect. I cannot say enough complimentary things about this property and Mr.&Mrs. Street. The property is just beautiful and the home is so quaint and comfortable. All of the animals were great! Such a pleasure to have the opportunity to spend time in the country on a property such as this and meeting such welcoming hosts. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Street for sharing and giving people from the city a place to relax.
We enjoyed being in the country!
After a long day working our men enjoyed having a place to relax out by the lake, grilling and building a fire. It was like a home away from home. Far better than a motel! I enjoyed the 3 ducks and watching the wildlife in the evening. The homeowners were attentive to our needs. Should work bring us back to the area we will definitely stay here again.
We loved having your crew on their working vacation. We welcome you back when you can enjoy more serenity. Your were great guests to have and even raised me to repair the shower faucet
The kitchen isn’t as stocked as I would like, there weren’t enough baking pans and had to really be creative when cooking for 9 people, rather than that everything was amazing and we definitely will be back, but with some pans to ensure my cooking isn’t a disaster!! The owners were great and Very inviting!
I could not have painted a dreamier place!
My family and I stayed at the Blue House for my 40th birthday. What an amazing property to disconnect from the world, and reconnect with my family and maker in Creation. Lou & Sandy’s retirement paradise is amazing. Can’t wait to go back! Charming dollhouse in a paradise full of adventure and miles with nobody except the animals and stars, amid rolling hills, green pastures, and mossy oaks. The lake in the back is truly an extrodinary engineering feat and was clearly a vision and dream lived out by brilliant minds. Already planning my next visit! Thank you Sandy & Lou for all you’ve done with this house and for our people. Blessings to you and your family :)
Over all the place was amazing.
Wish the grass would of been cut but beside that the view was awesome and the house was great. Would stay there again
Glad you enjoyed your stay. It has been hard to keep the grass under control, due to all the rain. We’ll try to do better.
