Charming B&B close to Gruene and New Branfels

5 on September 07, 2014

Stayed at the Cottage for a Girls' Get-away weekend which completely exceeded our expectations. The staff is incredibly friendly and made our stay such a joy! We rented the Cottage which had a queen and full bed (full is in the loft), which was perfect for us 2 gals. The porch had 2 chairs for us to sit and listen to birds chirping or play with the property cats! When we were tired from shopping or the river, we relaxed with Dish network in the Cottage! We were the only guests this weekend and still received a delicious 5 course breakfast each morning. The property is well kept, complete with a beautiful pool/hot tub and horseshoes. Historic Gruene is only a 5 minute drive away which was convenient and provided quiet nights. You simply cannot beat the value of this location! We plan to return to Acorn Hill for our future Gruene get-aways!

Wonderful Place

5 on July 24, 2014

We had a great time at Acorn Hill. We stayed there for two nights as we came to New Braunfels to enjoy a day at Schlitterbaun. It was great and very relaxing after a busy day. We stayed in the Texas Suite along with our two kids. It was clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and the pool was also great, especially at night with the stars in the sky. Next time we come to the area, this will be the place we stay. We would recommend it to anyone and feel very comfortable about that. The photos on the website are a very accurate representation of the place.

Wonderful Place to Rest and Relax

We stayed in the La Hacienda Cottage and it was very nicely decorated. The porch was a relaxing touch and the jet tub was greatly appreciated after walking around all the shops in Gruene. The breakfast was awesome each morning. Although we didn't get a chance to use the bar-b-que grill at our cottage (room), it was a nice added to touch. Very nice grounds, although it's on a main road, you have the feeling that you're in the backwoods it's so quiet. The sheets are amazingly soft and I meant to buy a set while there, but was so excited about breakfast I kept forgetting to inquire about them. The Owners are all very nice and polite. Very enjoyable and pleasant people to spend your money with. I so look forward to returning when we're in that part of Texas.

Great Place

We stayed at Acorn Hill B&B last weekend and enjoyed it very much. The rest of the family camped by the river. Such folly in 100 degree plus weather. Pam and her family are great hosts. The room we stayed in was in the main building so we just walked out our back door into the breakfast room. The breakfasts were delicious.We had plenty of space and a small refrigerator which helped keep some of our campers food cold. Many of the people staying there were previous guests and Pam knew them all. Grounds were very nice with an inviting pool. We would definitely return for another stay. Sure beats a hotel. Thanks to Pam and her family.

Wonderful Spring Break!

5 on March 18, 2013

My husband, daughter (5 years old) and I stayed for five nights in The Cottage during Spring Break. Check in was quick and efficient. Right when you meet Pam you feel at home. The yard and landscaping was beautiful and everything is well kept. Our cottage was clean and beautiful. The breakfast every morning is something to get out of bed for! Pam went above and beyone to make our stay special. She even surprised us with a vase of roses and a card for our anniversary. She let us use her printer late one night to print off some forms for Sea World. We would return again today if we could. We will be back! Katie, Scott, and Lily

Girls Night Out

We were looking for a cabin where we did not have to worry about anyone around us complaining about being loud and that is exactly what we received. I have no complaints and will definitely stay there again the next time I am in the area.

Clean and friendly B&B

5 on August 26, 2012

After two visits to Acorn Hill, my mom, sister, and I and are sold on their hospitality, customer service, cleanliness, and delicious breakfasts. Their website depicts the facility exactly as it actually appears. The location is convenient to numerous area attractions and it is so pleasant to come to a quiet, extremely clean location to end each day. Ronnie prepares a delicious breakfast each day, and we enjoy visiting with him and his mother-in-law Pam. Our most recent visit came on the heels of the birth of their newest family addition, yet they never missed a beat in making us feel welcome and tending to our needs while they were experiencing such a colossal event in their own family.

Loved this place!

Went to Acorn Hill B & B for an overnight stay while visiting hill country. Absolutely loved it!!! We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to come back in the near future.

Girls' Weekend Awat

5 on May 14, 2012

We were a group of 4 moms getting away for the weekend and found an ideal spot for relaxation at the Acorn Hill B&B. We stayed in two suites in the log cabin (Casablanca and Texas Sunset rooms) and could roll out of bed and go to breakfast out the back doors. The owners were more than gracious and friendly, not to mention great cooks. Breakfast ended up lasted 3 hours each day as we lingered at the table, ate and talked. The grounds were cleanly kept and beautiful and each building was set apart from the others to provide privacy. We enjoyed the gorgeous salt water pool as well and relaxed on the comfortable lounges and chairs. The B&B was about 5 miles from Gruene out on a country road. I wish it had been a bit closer to Gruene but other than that I can't think of anything to change. I am already looking forward to going back there with my family. The grounds of the B&B are fully fenced and there is a nice circular drive through the property so children could play on bikes etc very safely. Definitely a better choice than staying at a brand hotel for the charm, hospitality, space, and fabulous breakfast.

Acorn Hills was terrific!!

Far exceeded our expectations. We loved everything about it...especially breakfast each morning. Pam is a wonderful cook and goes all wouldn't believe it. Everything was scrumptious and all homemade. Texas style--lots of it. She is also so friendly and helpful....makes you feel right at home. Absolutely loved the Victorian House but the entire property is gorgeous. Beautiful grees, well manicured yard, and the rooms/house are spotless. The Owners take great pride in their property and service. Can't go wrong staying here. We can't wait to return!
