We stayed here for the middle of an extended stay in the area. It's proximity to Schlitterbahn and interesting rooms drew us to stay there. We reserved the Bluebonnet room in the Texas House. The building houses 2 rooms but the other was unoccupied during our stay.
Everything was wonderful about the room. It was quiet (as promised by the staff) with a comfortable bed, dining area, microwave, fridge and plenty of table space. The window treatments kept out enough light to get a nap in the afternoon. It was also very tastefully decorated.
The bathroom was large and had everything as needed. We reserved a room with a jacuzzi tub instead of walk in shower. The tub was large enough for myself (6ft). The only problem was with a shower nozzle which was attatched. This was difficult to use without getting water around the room. I just can't understand why places assume you will always know how to use every model of jacuzzi tub. Simple operating directions are always appreciated.
The breakfast part of the Bed & Breakfast was simply adequate. A selection of danish, cereals, yogurt, bagels, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuts and gravy were all present. They also had Coffee, tea, milk and a selection of juices. However, another pet peeve of mine was only having sugar and sweet & low. Equal is not a Luxury good anymore and most places stock at least 3 if not 4 sweetners (white, pink, blue and yellow)
The location could not be beat, was only 10 min from Schlitterbahn. We only had to make 2 turns to get there. We also visited Gruene for dinner one night (5 min down the road) and New Braunfels (10 minutes) for dinner the other night. The places suggested in the room guide were both excellent.
If going back to the area, we would definately stay there again. I'm just not sure how quaint the place would feel if all the rooms were full. We could not stay there the beginning of our stay because all rooms were booked so we only stayed on Sunday/Monday nights.
