Very nice cottage with comfortable furniture and Hill Country decor.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed one night in the two bedroom Texas Cottage. It could not have been nicer!! We all really enjoyed our stay. We were in town for a Willie Nelson concert at the Whitewater Amphitheather. We were able to take Uber to and from the event. My wife and I meet the owners, Julie and Brent Downy, and they could not be any nicer. I would highly recommend the Comal Inn!!

Comfortable place for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Shared the cottage with another couple and space was clean and put together. We were able to walk to the square for coffee in the morning and dinner/drinks at night. Would definitely stay again if back in the area!
