We had a great time! Great location on the lake. Beautiful views, cozy and comfortable accommodations. John was very kind and we had everything we needed. We do plan on returning. Great time with old friends.

Really nice place

Enjoyed fishing on the dock and just relaxing on the upper deck. Really nice three days there. They have cable tv and wifi as well. Try it you'll like it.

Lovely relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway--we swam, fished, and relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage had everything we needed and all the instructions were easy to follow. New Braunfels also has great restaurants and antiquing. We want to return when it's not so hot, but that's Texas for you.

We did enjoy our stay at this property despite Hurricane Harvey!

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice and owner John was very nice and friendly to deal with however, the house was a little dirty with cobwebs in shower and a lot of old stuff and left overs remaining from previous guests. Outdoors was overgrown and could of been kept up a little nicer and wasps on the boat deck were a problem. The house is off the beat and path if you are going here to float the river. Next time I would stay closer to the shutes or other side of 35. But overall it was okay.

Owner's Response: Y'all were great troopers to tough out the week with Harvey bearing down on the Lake and New Braunfels. After you left we had large branches in the back yard and quite a bit of leaves being blown off. Cobwebs do seem to spring up overnight, inside and out when you are near the water, but I'll take a quick run-through the afternoon of new guests arrival because of your comments. Many previous guests had commented that they appreciated the stocking of the fridge with all kinds of condiments, coffee and tea, but I'll look through them again to be sure they are not outdated. The roots of the plants on the cliff side are there to hold the soil, but if they appear overgrown and unkempt there or elsewhere on the property I do apologize because I wanted it to be attractive. I do appreciate your honest review and will take all of your comments under advisement.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed fishing off the private dock and the relaxing quiet atmosphere.

The owners were very east to work with and very responsive to any questions. Very happy with our visit and will be back again!
