Loved our stay!
We rented the house for our family and our daughter’s bridesmaids for her wedding at The Chandelier on 2/15. They allowed us to check in early which was so helpful with pre-wedding activities. The house was gorgeous as well as the cottage. Both were very clean and well stocked. We had plenty of room for everyone and we were all very comfortable. We didn’t get to be in the house long due to the wedding but it was so nice to be able to come back and relax in it. We would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone!
50th wedding anniversary with family
Rented house and small cottage to accommodate 16 (10 adults, 6 children and a baby)
House was very spacious and more than enough room for everyone. Kids enjoyed the game room, amazing weather allowed for eating out back and night time s’mores.
Close to Gruene which was fun. Kitchen was amazingly stocked for what we needed. We cooked breakfast and dinner each night. Kitchen provided everything we needed.
Extremely clean, comfortable beds. Nicely decorated inside and out for Christmas, which made for some nice family pictures .
Beautiful house, amazing location, perfect getaway to relax with a large family
The property is very clean and very nicely maintained. The house is beautiful and in a very nice part of town. From the backyard you don't see any neighbors and it's very serene. We were 5 families with kids that spent Thanksgiving holidays here and loved every moment of it. David and Elizabeth are very prompt with responses. Highly recommend this place to someone who wants to spend time with a large family.
Only negative was that the beds in most rooms seemed like full and not queen and the stairs in the cottage in the backyard are a bit difficult to use.
All in all, loved the place.
Nishant, all of the beds, with the exception of the two twin beds, are queen sized. None are full sized.
Great Hill country escape
This is a fantastic house for relaxing. Lots of wildlife around! WE loved the fire pit on the back deck. We all ended the night out there every night.
We had a wonderful stay here. The house was immaculate and comfortable. Best place we have stayed yet (and we’ve stayed in 11 over the last few years)
Beautiful, comfortable home in a very nice area
The home was beautiful and spotless. It is decorated seasonally with detail and taste. The area was gorgeous with deer that would come sit right in the front yard in the mornings while we had coffee. The backyard is very nice, we cooked out one night and sat by the fire pit which was a lot of fun. We didn't understand that the loft bedroom in the main house didn't have a door and that the person in the 2nd upstairs bedroom had to walk through the loft bedroom to get to their room so the loft basically had no privacy. There wasn't a night side table or reading lamp accessible. It would be a perfect area for kids but not comfortable for an adult. Overall the stay was very nice. One thing to know up front is that the house has beautiful wood floors and they ask you not to roll your roller suitcases on the wood. That would be fine for most but consider the age and health of your guests since the stairs are wood and it's a little difficult to maneuver a heavy suitcase up the stairs for some.
We appreciate your kind comments about the Prickly Pear as we strive continuously to make it comfortable and inviting for our guests. The website is very clear about the loft bedroom and has pictures to show that the entrance to the upstairs master is through this area. We have already added extra lights for reading by each bed and are getting estimates to add a closet. Till now we have never had a complaint from the hundreds of guests about adults sleeping in this loft bedroom. The website is quite clear that these are twin beds and situated at the top of a very enclosed loft. While we designed this to be for children, it has worked well for large groups of ladies, who seem to have been quite comfortable.
As far as the luggage, we only requested this in our master suite, with a written sign. We would never request that for the stairs.
We are 6 miles to Gruene.
