My husband and I took a weekend trip to Gruene and thank you trip advisor users for helping us find this gem! The location is quietly tucked in the middle of nowhere (perfect for fresh air, quiet, and star gazing!) and there is so much history to the schoolhouse and home, it was like sleeping in a museum! Upon arrival Darell gave us a walk through the property and escorted us to our West room. There was more than enough space for two and the room had all the amenities one would need. The common area in the main house was comfy with a nice big fireplace (perfect for our rainy weekend!), great amenities (games, drinks, movies, ice cream!), and their cats were so friendly! Breakfast the next day was very enjoyable. Typical American breakfast foods were served with some if the best salsa I have ever tasted! The best part of breakfast was being able to speak to Mrs. Waldrip about various topics from house pieces to her trips to Mexico. Darell, Mrs. Waldrip, and their cats really made this a weekend to remember and I highly recommend Kuebler-Waldrip to anyone looking for real Texas hospitality and atmosphere.

Ft.), an original 1863 one-room Texas schoolhouse with 5 separate bedrooms and 5 private baths. The schoolhouse was named for Daniel Murchison, a Texas Ranger, and moved to our ranch from Solms in Comal County in 1990. It has been restored with the original hardwood floors, chalk board with stage, and it now has 5 separate bedrooms. All of our rooms can be rented separately, and are perfect for a couple, a family with children or a weekday or weekend getaway. Total facilities can sleep a minimum of 22 people up to 33 people. Children welcome from 0-100. HISTORY: The original property was listed under the Veramendi Spanish land grant in the 1800's. The property was owned by a French wine merchant, Francois Guilbeau as an investment, and the main house was built in 1847. It was then owned by Andreas and Katherine Pape of Hanover, Germany who built the main house in 1847. The second family was Willie and Olga Kraft and children, and they owned the property from 1900 until 1974. In 1974, Margy and Larry Waldrip and their three sons, Dibrell, Darrell and David bought and moved the property, and they have lovingly restored the Kuebler Waldrip Haus building to its present state. PRESS ARTICLES include the Houston Chronicle, Texas Monthly book Texas Bed and Breakfast by Ann Ruff, The Great Stays of Texas (HHAT), and "House Full of History" in the Texas Hill Country Magazine, (summer 2010). ... more less
