Overview

Helotes Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Romantic Cottage Hideaway for Two, Hill Country Views, Dog Friendly!

The Carriage House is a charming loft space with a full kitchen, dining area, queen bed and concrete floors. The bedroom features an exposed limestone rock wall. The spacious bath doubles as a dressing room and features a large shower with a rain drop shower head. Every window in the cottage has a woodland view of trees, wildlife or horses. The seating area features a unique niche in the wall that mimics a fireplace and mantel. The front porch, with comfortable chairs is a great spot for greeting the morning with a cup of coffee and pastries. Around the back of the Carriage House are several spots to sit with a glass of wine or margarita and enjoy the hill country views. Find local info at www.shophelotes.com and www.liveatfloores.com. We are just 13 miles from Fiesta Texas and 15 miles from Seaworld. Local flavor restaurants include El Chaparral, Grey Moss Inn and Scenic Loop Cafe.

About Linda Klar

My great grandparents bought this property along with more than 500 acres so they could farm and run a dairy. Erich and Lydia Menger spent more than 30 years there. After their passing, their four children inherited the property. My grandmother, her brothers and their families continued farming but in 1973, it was decided to sell the property. As a little girl, I was devastated to lose my favorite playground. I vowed that someday I would by the ranch back. The man who bought the ranch sold off the acreage but in 2000 the seven acres that contained the original houses and sheds came on the market. With my husband's support, I WAS able to buy the ranch back! I also got the pony I'd always wanted from childhood.

Linda Klar purchased this cottage in 1929

Why Linda Klar chose Helotes

We enjoy the wildlife, the history, the farm ways. We hope you enjoy the charming old rock house, the vantage points from which you can relax and see the mountains.

Our special location allows you to enjoy Old Town Helotes with cute shops, market days, bicycling and live country music. Seaworld and Fiesta Texas are just 15 miles away. La Cantera mall offers department stores and your favorite shops. UTSA and Southwest Research are close by. And you can enjoy a day at the Riverwalk downtown and the retreat from the sounds of the city to the peaceful chirping of cicadas.

What makes this cottage unique

Government Canyon State Natural Area is closeby.

Comfort and convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our vacation. The Carriage House provided comfort and convenience during our recent stay. We absolutely loved the huge bathroom/dressing room with the Rain shower head. Each day we awoke refreshed, and enjoyed leisurely morning coffee and breakfast before setting out for exploration. Location was perfect for sight seeing in San Antonio (Alamo or Riverwalk) or exploring some of the wonderful small Texas towns (Bandera, Fredericksburg, Johnson City, Boerne, etc.) We especially enjoyed LBJ's Texas White House, The National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg and if you are a country music fan, don't miss Luckenbach! And did you know that the Texas Wine Trail is the #2 Wine Destination in America?? The Texas Hill Country captured our hearts with its rolling hills, beautiful wildflowers and friendly people. The Carriage House was a perfect home away from home for our explorations! We are so fortunate to live in this wonderful country!

Had a great relaxing stay !

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for anything more. If you are looking for a place within 35 minutes of all the major attractions that is peaceful and relaxing and away from the crowds this is for you! Linda is a very gracious host. We couldn't be more pleased!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was perfect for us - we enjoyed the peaceful country setting with places to stroll or sit outside. The cottage was larger than we expected and everything was provided that might be needed, right down to laundry facilities, board games & local travel info books. Linda responded immediately to email questions and was so interesting to visit with (tho our privacy was completely respected) . The fun little towns of Bandera and Helotes are an easy drive away - good BBQ suppers available in both. We found the Park & Ride from UTSA an excellent way to get around San Antonio.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you took advantage of the Park and Ride system to go downtown! It's not a long drive to downtown but our great bus system relieves you of parking issues. And, in the other direction, you found Old Town Helotes and the cowboy town of Bandera a short drive away. I hope to see you back again when the cold winds of Saskatchewan blow next winter!

Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House for our stay and loved it! We were celebrating our 2nd anniversary/New Years and just loved the serenity, nature, and quaintness of everything. This is a wonderful place to stay due to the surroundings yet close proximity to every necessity.

Great Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is exactly what I was looking for. Sleeping accomodations was perfect for the two of us, but also large enough to have my daughter and her family over for Thanksgiving. There was ample room inside to set up a large table, and lots of running around room on the ranch. The kids loved feeding the horses, and Linda was a great host...she even provided marshmallows and skewers and invited everyone over to the campfire at the big cottage. Thank you Linda!!
