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.

Our stay at the Carriage House
What a great experience!! So comfortable and homey! Mrs. Linda is an amazing woman, and tended to our needs. Very relaxing, and looking forward to our next weekend there!
Relaxing and excellent location
We loved this property. It was in the midst of nature with horses outside our one of our windows. Location perfect. It was far enough away from the city to not be subjected to the hustle and bustle of it, but still close to the highway to get to the city if needed. The only thing is we had a hard time finding it as we didn't get in until very late and there are no street lights lighting the way to see any numbers on the mailbox. It was very clean and comfortable.
Excellent girl's road trip
My best friend and I stayed were going to Helotes to see The Mavericks in concert and needed a stress-free break from everyday life! The experience at this cabin was amazing. It was very clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. We loved talking with other guests, feeding the horses, walking under the trees and were blessed to have some rain also. Loved sitting on the patio smelling the rain and watching the birds, horses., etc! Would definitely stay here again. Can't wait to go back with my husband the next time!
Carriage House was perfection!
Our days in the Carriage House were pretty much perfect! Might consider having a space heater available for bathroom during cold snaps. Brrr.
Thanks, Rebecca! We certainly enjoyed hosting you and your husband at our Carriage House.
Dang! I wish I'd known you were chilly because I have an extra space heater at the ranch I could have brought you. I hope you took advantage of the towel warmer and the thick robes in the bathroom. Few sensations are as wonderful as a heated towel wrapped around you when you step out of the shower. Dreamy!
Hope you guys come back and join us again soon!
Great place to stay if you like the feel of a rural setting
Linda and Joe are wonderful hosts. We have been very satisfied with our stays at the Carriage House.
Perfect country get away with all the amenities and close to the see for anything you need. The Carriage House is very well maintained and clean. They had everything we needed ready for our stay. Will definitely look forward to another stay!
