About Leslie J Lammers

We are Leslie and Tom in the photo. We love living in New Braunfels and welcome you to our town. We are both Texans recently returned from living in the New York City metro area. When we visited New Braunfels from 1990 thru 2003, we stayed in the house on Napoleon as it was owned by friends. In 2004 our friends sold it to us. We use it for our friends who come to town and rent it out short-term. It is a charming place. It was built in 1910 or so. Wooden house. We call it Bonaparte Place because it is on Napoleon Street.

Leslie J Lammers purchased this house in 2004

Why Leslie J Lammers chose Hill Country

Bonaparte Place is so centrally located. Living is easy. The Arlens grocery store is a 5 minute drive. There are about ten good restaurants within two miles. The best in-town music venues are a ten minute walk away. My siblings and I came to New Braunfels frequently as children. We fell in love with the river and the trees. As children, we spent all day in the river. My husband and I brought our two daughters here from New York City on vacations. When we decided to leave the hub-bub of NYC, New Braunfels was our choice.

In 1979, a local family built the water park known as Schlitterbahn. Over the years, they added on and now have three sections of park with lots of rides. It is tons of fun.

In addition, New Braunfels has a huge music scene. Downtown has three or four bars with music five nights a week. And then there is the famous Gruene Hall. It is a ten minute drive from the house. If you like music, check the schedule immediately and buy tickets for your stay. The shows sell out quickly for name artists.

New Braunfels is a great place to stay and play. Don't forget your sunblock, cooler and water shoes. We have towels for you.

What makes this house unique

Our house was built in 1910. It takes you back to a simpler time. The house is built of wood. It was hard wood floors, hard wood ceilings, a claw foot tub and a modern shower. The back deck offers a private place to hang out at the end of your day.

Adorable river house

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for a weekend getaway with friends. It was easy to check in, needed items (parking permits, extra keys, etc) were all easy to find. There was a list of nearby restaurants (complete with average wait times!) that was very helpful. The house was adorable, and a great size for three couples. We enjoyed the friendly deer in the backyard, they were a highlight of the trip.

Great house in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this charming house. It's within walking distance to the Comal River and Schlitterbahn, minutes from popular downtown hangouts and a 10 minute drive to Gruene. The house is well provisioned....we cooked dinner several nights with no issues. Having the tubes available made floating the river easy and convenient. I would definitely recommended this property and would stay there again.

Great spot for a river vacation

  • 5 of 5

Bonaparte Place is a charming older home in excellent condition. It was fully furnished with everything we needed- all we brought was groceries, sunscreen and clothes for floating the river. It is an easy walk to and from the Comal River, and the owner even provided tubes, so our entertainment was practically free ($2/person fee to the city to enter the river at the park but much easier and cheaper than the tube companies). There is a wooded ravine just behind the house which serves as home to numerous deer. Three bucks, several does, and a couple of fawns roamed our backyard and the surrounding neighborhood.

Cute house - plenty of space and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Overall - we loved the house, A/C keeps it cold, nice balcony/deck on the back, awesome front porch. The pots/pans definitely need an upgrade (non stick!) - but they worked fine. There is a tube drop off location literally a block away to float the Comal. Great central location - we walked downtown to eat at a steakhouse and river is easy walking distance as well. Will definitely come back next year.

We spent a week at Bonaparte Place with 2 of our 3 adult children. It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Bonaparte Place was the perfect home for our week long stay. We have many friends in the area, but felt a place of our own would be more comfortable. It turned out to be a perfect decision. We were able to entertain at our leisure, walk downtown to shop, eat & listen to music. We were steps from the river and Schlitterbahn, too. The house is very comfortable and provided many items like shampoos, dish soap, etc. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough to work in comfortably... we did prepare at least one meal a day, not to mention copious amounts of coffee. I highly recommend Bonaparte Place. The owners were gracious and accessible to answer questions. They even provided tubes!
