“Our "go-to" in New Braunfels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

My hubby and I meet up with our buddies from all over Texas to hang here twice a year. Spring/Summer to toob the Comal River and November for The Wurstfest! You can toob the river constantly right around this complex, which sits on a small peninsula. All these condos are very clean and have a deck that overlooks the Comal and it so relaxing. This vaca resort has been tirelessly updating all of their units and they look great. Do not come here expecting to be 100% connected to the world as there is no TV in the units and I applaud The Other Place for this. In the middle of this complex is a small green park area with nice sized charcoal grills, picnic tables, horseshoes, & a swing/slide set. Small yet full size kitchens with ample size dining table. Management is so very nice and a family operation.

Just returned from our annual Memorial Day weekend getaway at The Other Place in New Braunfels. We are always treated wonderfully and couldn't ask for a better group of folks in the front office. The cottages are always clean and the location is perfect since it's centrally located in town. I want to thank Barry and the staff for another round of godd times! Be back in August......or maybe sooner!

Room Tip: All rooms are located with plenty of trees and riverbank for everyone to play on.

Our experience at The Other Place has always been great. We have spent three years here and have always had great experiences with the staff and the facilities. Our room has always been clean, well cared for and feels like home during our stay. The staff has always been helpful with any of our requests, whether it has been about local attractions, things to do or just day to day needs. We would not consider another place to stay in the New Braunfels area. The commons area and the river access is just "frosting on the cake". We look forward to going there every year. Phil/Audrey

We have stayed at The Other Place Resort for the past three years. We enjoy the setting, green space and nature in the heart of town. The personnel are great and attend to your very need. We will be back next year.

My family has been coming to The Other Place for a mini-family reunion for 19 years. We love the fact that we can each stay in one of the separate units, but gather together as desired. The grounds are perfect for kids, particularly younger ones, with a small playground and lots of room to run around. With the kids are teenagers (or beyond) now, they still love to bring skate boards to ride around on the quite safe road on the property or even still play hide-and-seek at night.

My friends and I have been staying at The Other Place for 30 about years during the annual Wurstfest Festival..The location is perfect and cozy with no through traffic. It is always clean, the cabins are well stocked with linens and kitchen needs. Just bring your food and beverages. It is quiet and peaceful! Plus, we had cavorting deer by the river this weekend! The same family has owned this resort for decades and they are seen always working on their property. You get a lot of "bang" for your dollar.

With the can and bottle ban in place on the Comal River tubing is a family friendly thing to do in New Braunfels. The Other Place Resort was a perfect place to stay on the river. The resort is on a part of the Comal which is shaped like a horseshoe which means you can tube for 30 minutes and still be next to the resort. The cottage we stayed in had AC and a kitchen and a great porch to view the river. The resort is in the middle of town and within easy walking distance to the town square. I had one issue with the fridge when we checked in and the management responded immediately even though it meant having a repair man come in after hours.
