About the property

Beautiful Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8. On Comal River w/ Pool, HT


If this property is not available for your dates, please check out our other property which is just 100 yards away and has all the same amenities. That listing is WWW VRBO COM / 338275

Our beautiful, brand new POOL AND HOT TUB IS NOW OPEN. Make sure to bring your swimsuit and enjoy this during your vacation!

The COOL COMAL COTTAGE is a beautiful third floor condo with a stunning view of beautiful New Braunfels. The Comal River is known as “the shortest river in Texas”. This two mile river is crystal clear and a constant 68 degrees year round.

The COTTAGE has an ideal location on the river. It is close to the headwaters and allows for one of the longest floats on the Comal River. The river area next to the condo also offers one of the best areas for swimming and splashing in the clean refreshing waters.

Inside the COTTAGE you will be treated to traditional TEXAS COTTAGE living. Our objective is to provide a cool, light and airy environment with natural “green” products while affording you to the comforts of modern sophistication.

At the entry you will be greeted by natural wood floors that extend from the door all the way across the condo through the living area and to the balcony on the other side. The beautiful warm tones of the condo stand in contrast to the cool colors that come from the refreshing waters of the COMAL river, the calming blues of the sky and the lively greens of the spring budding leaves. The bedrooms are simple but elegant and each room is equipped with a television with over 100 cable channels. We also have wonderfully large flat screen with DVD player in the living room and a library of videos for you to choose from. The bathrooms will make you feel right at home with their comfortable cottage style. The kitchen will invite the entire family to gather around with its tasteful simplicity and COOL COTTAGE style. The kitchen is open to the living area which is furnished with a nice sleeper sofa, a comfy arm chair and a big screen TV. Oh and did we mention the view from the balcony? What a perfect transition it provides from the beauty inside to the beauty outside. Take time to “set a spell” and enjoy the comfortable chairs and beautiful mosaic table.

Our condo complex has recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation of the exterior. All the outside walkways and balconies are brand new and waiting for you to enjoy them. We certainly hope that you will choose our COOL COTTAGE in paradise when you plan your vacation to New Braunfels. We have done what we can to make it a wonderful experience for you.

The TREEHOUSE is also located near the Schlitterbahn Water Park, a 65-acre mega complex, voted America's #1 Water Park for the past six years!

COOL COMAL COTTAGE is within walking distance of downtown New Braunfels--and only five blocks from the 100-year-old Naeglin's Bakery!

Restful New Braunfels is a popular vacation destination. Besides the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers, it is known for its Wurstfest, antique shopping, Landa Park, Landa Park Golf Course, delicious German Cuisine, great Texas BBQ, and many fantastic restaurants. One of my favorites is Huisache Grill which is only six blocks from the TREEHOUSE!

Inside, this attractively decorated two-bedroom two-bath condominium comfortably sleeps six adults. You can squeeze 8 in if some are children. Master bedroom (queen-size).Day bed in master (twin size), Front bedroom (full-size). Sleeper couch (full-size).

Outside, we have our beautiful new swimming pool and hot tub area in the center of our beautiful grounds and right next to the clear waters of the amazing COMAL River. Walk down to the concrete river landing, enjoy the towering trees, and cool water. Enjoy the Comal River’s best location!

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR. We do want the Comal River to be a family friendly place. If you are a group of young people, please have some consideration for the families with young children. Someday, you may have children too. Behave as you would want the people around your future children to behave. If you are a family with children and have never tubed the Comal River – I have some words of advice for you. First come during the week. The crowds are not as bad and the river is wonderful and pretty! Second, if you do have to come during the weekend – go tubing early! If you get in the water before 10 am, the river will not be so crowded and the wait for a shuttle at the end of your float will not be long.

Amazing location on the Comal River

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. The river is right down stairs (or the elevator if you prefer), the condo is furnished with comfortable beds and eight tubes for tubing down the Comal River which you can enter from the condo property. The owner is responsive and provided a map of the river where you can walk back up the opposite side of the river through a park back to the condo, where you tube or swim across to the condo. No need to pay for the pleasure of tubing this river. Also the pool was wonderful and unit is conveniently located. There is a train that goes by in the back of the community but if you are sound sleeper you probably won't hear it as the windows are very good in this building and if you are a light sleeper like me, I travel with ear plugs. Do be careful of the patio door which sometimes locks itself as you attempt to pull it open from the outside leaving you locked out on the patio, but I believe the owner was looking into this weird phenomenon which did not occur every time and we were unable to recreate at will. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it all. Thank you Reed it was a great time!

Extremely Happy with a River Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a great experience with our stay at the Cottage. The room was fully stocked with everything we could possible need, from kitchen supplies to floats for the river. Our host was very attentive and made sure we had all the information we need to make our arrival as smooth as possible. The property is literally a stones throw away from the Comal River which we loved!! Pool, jacuzzi, grill and the river... what more do you need?! We are already planning out next trip and the Cool Cottage will be our spot.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This room was great, right on the river. Everything is provided, including tubes, which was perfect for us. You can go right outside and start floating the river. The pool and hot tub are well kept and there are plenty of grills outside to cook on.

Just back from Texas and we already miss it! Cool Comal Cottage was perfect for our family of 5. The kids loved the pool and the river. Everything was clean and in order. We could not ask for more!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a FANTASTIC place! We were pleasantly surprised at how charming and relaxing the Cool Comal Cottage was. Rooms were very spacious, clean and comfortable, with good beds, TVs and plenty of storage. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook a meal. The living area was cozy and had a nice fireplace for cooler evenings. We really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony each morning for coffee and each night relaxing with a glass of wine. The condo has a great view of the Comal River, as well as the pool and hot tub. If you are coming for Wurstfest, this is the perfect place, since it is within walking distance from the grounds. If you are coming to float the river, the location is right on the river, and tubes are even provided. The owner, Reed, was a pleasure to work with. He sent us very detailed information on the place, the area and answered every question we had. We will definitely be back!

New Braunfels is an amazing place. Someday I will write a bunch of information about it here. Everybody knows about Schlitterbahn. It's less than one mile away!

Also, I should mention Gruene Texas. It is only 3.5 miles away and home of Gruene Hall 'The Oldest Dance Hall in Texas'!
