My husband and I stayed at The Gruene Apple for his birthday in December. I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so I have nothing to compare it to, however I did have expectations, and this place not only met them, but by far it exceeded all of them! I will say I was a little fussy about the price of the rooms, they were all a little expensive to me when I was doing my research for our stay in Gruene. I have stayed in rooms that were close to the $200 mark but not very often, and when I do I expect the place to knock my socks off! And it did! Worth every penny! We also scoped out some of the other B&B;s in the area, and we were very satisfied with our choice. We stayed in the Angler room, the pictures online are great but the room in person was even better! Very spacious, very clean, and suprisingly very quite and private. We had a beautiful view of the river from our balcony.The location was fabulous! We walked just about everywhere in the town of Gruene, and it was just a very short drive into New Braunfuls. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was AMAZING! We are late risers so both mornings we were down for breakfast at the last minute but there was still pleanty of food and they did not rush us. The whole property was beautiful, and thats saying alot for December in Texas! And last but not least, my husband just loved that they had a resident cat, George! He was very friendly and greeted everyone as they checked in or came back from shopping in the historic downtown Gruene. This place for us really felt like home away from home! This B&B was so comfortable and friendly that I may never be able to go to another. They really set the bar pretty high! We will be back!
