We had a wonderful time! Loved the decor and the grounds. The bed was wonderful. We enjoyed our coffee on the front porch in the rockers. We could hear the courthouse bells. We will definitely return. Thanks!

We loved this charming house!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 long time friends together for the weekend to enjoy Gruene and New Braunfels! This house was perfect for us. It's darling inside and out! We enjoyed spending time on the front porch and having breakfast on the back patio. Comfortable furniture and beds and a great location.

The only things we could have used were toiletries (soap or shower gel, Kleenex) in the bathroom but otherwise, we had everything we needed! Would love to stay here again!!

Perfect accommodations for our first Wurstfest!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son (16 months) and I stayed here with friends for Wurstfest 2015 and it couldn't have been better! The home was built in the early 1900's and has been restored to perfection creating a very warm and welcoming atmosphere! It was an easy walk to the festival and centrally located to everything! We had a great time and would definitely stay here again!

Unbelievable house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house. It's absolutely beautiful inside. The beds are, hands down, the most comfortable sleeping I've had many years. The kitchen is great and it leads out to a neat courtyard/beer garden that is perfect for outdoor eating and hanging out. Lastly, you are about a 3-5 minute walk from the New Braunfels plaza downtown and all of the bars, restaurants and shops. Awesome place! Thanks for allowing us to come!

Spectacular home!

  • 5 of 5

We also rented the Ludwig Home and Telegraph House. Both were exactly as expected, clean, comfortable, and decorated beautifully. The location was very convenient to everything. We were able to walk to downtown and enjoyed the night life. A perk to the trip was the wonderful farmers market that was in downtown New Braunfels on Saturday mornings. Looking forward to staying here again.
