This 1880 complete rebuild is the perfect nostalgic vacation home with its open kitchen and living room displaying the 130 year old cedar siding and original bead board. This ‘one of a kind' cottage has all the modern conveniences from granite countertops and stainless steel appliances to HD flat screens and Blue Ray players in multiple rooms while preserving the old world amenities in the spacious claw foot tub. You can rest and unwind in one of the two outdoor seating areas overlooking a large fenced yard shaded by hundred year old pecan trees. Or, you can gaze at the stars while relaxing on your private balcony.
Once here, you can experience the delights of New Braunfels. A five minute walk will take you world's #1 water park - Schlitterbahn. Or, you can stroll two blocks to Prince Solms park and ride the tube chute or float the river. Looking for a unique dining experience? Try Pat's Place, Union Station Café or the historic Naeglin’s Bakery, an easy jaunt from the cottage. Shop or visit the museums while you’re out. Famous Gruene is only 4 miles away. Natural bridge Caverns is 20 min south and San Marcos outlet mall is 20 min north.
Beware. With these luxurious amenities and convenient access to all New Braunfels has to offer, you may not want to leave.

Why Melissa Hayes chose New Braunfels
We love New Braunfels and enjoy traveling there as a family and couldn't resist owning a part of the city.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the old 1880 house because it was so charming and was so close to all of our favorite things. I know you will love it as much as we do.

Awesome family home for vacation!
Rented house for family celebration.
Two sons graduated from college. Enjoyed just being able to walk to all activities but just enough from all the crowds.
A Nice Place for a .Family Gathering
We were very pleased with the house as a place for our extended family to stay. A beautiful house and yard with all the amenities you need. Very close to Schlitterbahn (right between the two entrances) and the Comal tube chute. Nice touches with toys for the kids. This is a perfect place if you have some younger children (elementary/jr. high) as there is a great loft, perfect for two and a hidden room that they would love! There was a little difficulty getting regular TV, as it is through the internet, but we weren't there to watch TV!
Melissa’s home was beautiful it had so many beautiful touches!
A place so relaxing, clean and practical. We had a very good time there
We enjoyed staying for the month of February. Very nice house with lots of room. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would require. Location of house was close to our activities, eating places, shopping, golf, walking trails, etc. Owners were attentive to any questions. Highly recommend renting this house for a few days or monthly. We hope to return next year. Thank you Phillip and Melissa.
Second stay and looking forward to the next time
We stayed here over the holidays again this year because we enjoyed our stay so much last year. We really like the location being near the Prince Solms park and walking distance to the Comal river and downtown area. (Refer to last year's review.) The house is very comfortable with lots of room for our grown up kids and their families visiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas and our granddaughter loves the loft and secret room.
This year we were surprised to find that the washer and dryer had been upgraded and that was greatly appreciated during our long stay. The entertainment system has been changed to a ROKU format. I'd have to say that we didn't find that system quite as user friendly but we quickly learned how to use it.
The grass in the back yard is still struggling so it continues to be a bit muddy on the rainy days. But we understand Melissa and Phillip are planning a makeover for the back yard this spring. So we'll be looking forward to seeing the results because we've already reserved our time for another stay this year.
Greg we very much enjoyed hosting your family again this year. Have a blessed year we meet again in the fall.
