Reviewed July 2, 2006

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.

As a first-timer of a bed & breakfast I was really skeptical of how the accomodations might be. However, I have to say that this site as well as the Homestead Inn website did not lie. Everything was just as stated. Room was very clean and a very quite place to stay. Just a mile from downtown Gruene this is an excellenet place to stay. The Inn on the Gruene was also a great place. While not right on the river you can get there within about 5 minutes. I would highly recommedn this to any groups or couple that is looking for a nice quite place to stay and close to all of the fun of New Braunfels or Gruene.

Spent an absolutely fabulous long weekend over New Year's at the Homestead Inn. After watching Gary P. Nunn at Gruene Hall, we brought in the new year in rockers on the porch of our suite drinking sparkling wine that our hosts left for us! The breakfast was simple but nice with hot eggs and sausage, fruit and various pastries. Also liked having a nice little bar with live music on the premises. I can't wait to go back!!

My husband and I stumbled onto Gruene Homestead Inn's, Red Brick Gastehaus. It is conveniently located in the heart of Gruene, (2 doors down from Gruene Hall) and is just wonderful. When we arrive, we turn off the truck and don't drive again until it's time to go home. We spend the days relaxing and strolling through the town. It is the perfect place for a couple to get away and reconnect. The rooms are always pristine and the staff helpful. We found the Inn in July of 2002 and will be making our 5th trip back in March 2004. I can't comment on the breakfasts because we choose to sleep in on our visits. I can say that there are delicious muffins left for us daily. We recommend this place to everyone.

Quaint, cozy and romantic....The rooms are decorated like my Grandmother's house used to be when I was a little girl. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fair...I am not a fan of the southern biscuits and gravy cuisine.Located close to river and antigue stores and parking adequate.I highly recommend...actually I am hoping to take my mom and sisters there very soon for a girls weekend.
