About Suzanne Franklin

Hügelland Haven is privately co-owned by retired police chief Ray Douglas and New Braunfels native Suzanne Franklin and managed by Suzanne. We KNOW New Braunfels and the surrounding area and want to help you make the most of your visit to the Hill Country. Suzanne is available to answer any of your questions and help you plan a vacation you'll never forget.

Suzanne says, 'Schlitterbahn is a huge attraction and a great time, but there is also much more to do and see here. My lab and I so enjoy hiking, swimming, and just being outside, so I've become very familiar with all of the surrounding natural playgrounds this area has to offer. And I love sharing these places with people, so I decided to get into vacation rental. I don't just want to give you a place to stay...I want to help you plan a great visit to the 'sweet spots' of the hill country.'

Suzanne Franklin purchased this condo in 2014

Why Suzanne Franklin chose New Braunfels

The grounds at Waterwheel are just beautiful. The pool is set in the middle of a luscious green expanse full of pecan trees. The small dam in the river creates a current so even when the river is low, it's a fun spot to play.

What makes this condo unique

Waterwheel is tucked into a residential neighborhood, offering the feel of seclusion yet is so close to everything...Schlitterbahn, the Comal, the parks, downtown, and Gruene are all less than 5 minutes away.

Winter Texan Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As usual the condo was clean and ready when we arrived. Suzanne is such a pleasure to work with and it is a home away from home.

We chose this condo for a girl's weekend getaway to celebrate my grand daughter's 18th birthday. It was perfect for the five of us. The condo was spotless and very well stocked with everything we needed. Suzanne even had delicious cookies for us when we arrived. We had a wonderful time shopping in Gruene, attending a Granger Smith concert at Gruene Hall, enjoying dinner at the fabulous Gruene River Restaurant, and relaxing at the wonderful hot tub the condo has to offer. The living area looks out over a beautiful lawn where deer are abundant. We couldn't have asked for any better accommodations! You will not be disappointed!

Perfect Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks, Suzanne, for sharing your very comfortable and well located river front condo! The open concept living area with a beautiful window wall looking out over the Guadalupe river frontage exceeded our expectations as did the park-like views from the patio. Having been retired and traveling extensively for the last 6 years, we have an affinity for HomeAway stays for our week-long vacations and your place more than met all our needs. Immaculately kept on the inside, the condo’s grounds with the heated pool and hot tubs are also a definite plus. We felt very safe and secure. The pictures don't do this condo experience justice. And yes, the location is perfect with quick and easy access to downtown NB, many parks, Gruene, and walking distance to Schlitterbahn and tubing. Also, Suzanne was also immediately available when we booked the condo and when we had questions. The cookies she left us were very tasty and welcomed.

A perfect get away for a great trip and a very comfortable home to go back to each evening after all our explorations around NB and Gruene each day. Loved feeding the deer that graze across the park-like premises each afternoon. Thank you for a wonderful experience and awesome memories! We will share all this with our friends to check out and enjoy plus we will definitely be back to stay. Also, we highly recommend your place to everyone to enjoy as we did.

Beautiful quiet condo in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was immaculately clean and well-decorated. Everything you would need is provided, right down to pool toys!

The manager, Suzanne, left friendly, welcoming touches and was instantly available through phone or text for any questions.

The grounds are beautiful, overlooking the Guadalupe River, well-manicured lawns with picnic tables and grills, pools and hot tubs were perfect! Very relaxing weekend get-away!
