Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the dock is spectacular. I don't know if it was the time of year that we stayed (October) or what, but I couldn't have asked for better sunrises over the water. Lots of bird watching opportunities too. The cottage is very conveniently located, clean, and comfortable. The beds were also comfortable, which is critical. Only minor suggestion would be to add a new large frying pan (cast iron if possible) to the cooking options...the only one I found was a very worn teflon pan. Other than that, there was everything we needed to cook, games to play, books to read...highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Caroline Thanks for the review and the question. I'm not sure that I'll get a cast iron skillet, because it is hard to keep seasoned, but I'll definitely replace the worn Teflon one. Come back and see us, we are happy you enjoyed the cottage. John

Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our extended weekend at the cottage. Our favorite time was having coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the water! The place was well stocked and we only needed our personal items during our stay. I really enjoyed the nostalgic feel of the decorating inside. There were a few items that we had in the cottage that brought back memories of my 60's childhood that we personally had back then.

We hope to get back sometime in the future and do some further exploring of some things we missed this time around. Needless to say, we would highly recommend staying "On The River!"

Perfect for a weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

I gathered my adult children together for my weekend birthday weekend. The house was perfect for gathering around. Lots of seating areas both indoors and out. Plenty of room to play games, watch the tube and keep the food out for grazing rather than formal meals. It was well-maintained and very comfy.

Comfortable beds, great AC (a requirement in this part of Texas in August), and a fully equipped kitchen what more can you ask?

This cottage was perfect! Just what we prefer -- cottagy and NOT like home.

  • 5 of 5

All the basics were there, every convenience available, from hair dryer to fishing poles to board games and cards, gas grill, all dishes and cookware, clean comfy towels/sheets/linens, extra pillows, pull out sofa, noodles and a floatable, canoe, deep cool water for lovely swim and more. Whole cottage labeled with tags on cabinets and drawers to avoid guessing where things are! And it was clean as a whistle from corner to corner! Only suggestion would be some attention to back patio and yard with a pressure wash and a little yard maintenance. But this would not deter us from returning in the least! These owners have worked hard to give you an easy, enjoyable experience! We will rent again if we are back. It is THE perfect distance between San Antonio (30 minutes max) and Austin (40 minutes)!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The yard maintenance has been difficult with the back to back rentals and the drought, but I appreciate the critique and will ensure better mowing, and the pressure washing is a great idea and I'll do it this week. Just sorry I didn't think of it before your stay. Please do come back.

Five Star Review

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at the cottage and had a wonderful experience. The river/lake and surrounding landscape was beautiful and the cottage was clean, well-arranged, comfortable, and charming.The neighbors were cordial and friendly. The owner was consistently helpful and accommodating. The location can't be beat - it's close to everything but off the beaten path. We will certainly not hesitate to return, hopefully soon. I can, without reservation, recommend the Silvery Moon Cottage for a stay in the New Braunfels area.
