About the property

4 Bedroom + Loft, 3 Bath Near Schlitterbahn (Sleeps 11-14)

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 convienent access to all New Braunfels has to offer, you may not want to leave.

Hello, Our names are Melissa & Phillip Hayes. We live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and we have been married for 17 years and we have 4 children.

Why Melissa Hayes chose Hill Country

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 house. Good location.

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Schlitterbahn every year for 7 years and this is the best house we've stayed in so far. Very kid friendly. Very clean and well stocked. 5-10 min walk to the water parks and a short drive to Gruene. We had issues with the Roku but could have been user error. Would definitely recommend this place and will stay again when we come back.

Fantastic location. Great communication with owners.

  • 5 of 5

My family and my brother's family spent the weekend and it was walking distance to the Tube Chute and Schlitterbahn. 5 kids ages 9-15 and all 4 parents had a blast. It was nice to have a full kitchen so we could make breakfast and eat together. We walked to an ice cream shop one night. Had dinner in Downton Gruene that was a short drive. The owners are very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended for a short or long stay!

Beautiful home in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a prime area and is very close to Schlitterbahn and the Comal river tube rentals. It has been beautifully finished both inside and out and provides a nice, quiet place to rest at night. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this home for others stay in when visiting New Braunfels.
