About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the bank of the Comal Springs, this charming 800 square-foot historical cottage is fully furnished with a kitchen, fireplace for ambiance only (non-functioning) and central air and heat.

Villa Sartain is reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside. Italian cypress trees line the sweeping 500 foot drive down to the entrance of your peaceful vacation cottage. This idyllic cottage is perfect whether you want to play in the crystal clear Comal Springs or just relax and enjoy the mild climate and scenic beauty.

The cottage is set-up for a romantic get-away for couples. (only one couple on the property at a time). The screened-in porch is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and the peaceful views. Prepare your lunch on a gas grill in the outdoor stone living area, then top off your evening by the chiminea around a stone cocktail table.

There are five flagstone patios terraced down to the Comal Springs for dining, reading and relaxing. The lower terrace features a semi-private swimming and floating area and a charcoal grill at the river bank. The location, serenity and privacy create a paradise for snow birds and travelers looking for a month or longer get-away.

The whole community of New Braunfels is charmed by the reassuring whistle of the train. Just 1.5 miles from the historic town of Gruene and Gruene Hall, the oldest operating dance hall in Texas.
