Wonderful hosts

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a bed and breakfast and we weren't sure what to expect. This beautiful property is conveniently located, full of history, and has an amazing staff. The daily breakfast was delicious, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were treated as if we were family. The owners sat with us and talked every day. The rooms were cleaned and stocked daily. Very easy going place and people. We'll definitely return! Can't say enough good things!

We can't wait to return to this place

We have stayed in numerous B&B's all over the south and this is my new most favorite place ever. The people are what made this one of the most relaxing and loving atmosphere to just get away from it all, that I have ever experienced in a B&B. This is a family friendly place where children can grab a cookie or raid a fridge with drinks including water and watch TV or play board games in a homelike setting. Our room was quiet and well appointed for every need including a little area where I could have fixed a snack or coffee without going downstairs, If you like to visit with others you may do so. If you needed to meet up with friends they would be welcome to come on in and you could serve them a drink or coffee and be in a lovely living area open for your convenience. Ms. Marge is a fab person. What is not to LOVE here.? Nothing. From arrival to departure we were treated with the utmost courtesy as well as given the history of the dwelling. Excellent food and I am a fussy person there. Great staff fixed authentic, and flavorful everything. Go here! You will never be sorry you did! .

Best bed and breakfast!

We stayed here in March 2012 and loved it! The breakfast was amazing every morning, the location and people are great. The only complaint I had is that GPS really doesn't like to find the place so if you're coming in inclement weather (it was raining and dark by the time we got close), call for directions. The owners are lovely and super helpful!

Will be back!

Went on a girls trip to New Braunfels from 6/29-7/1 and had an amazing time! By chance we ended up at the Historic Kuebler Waldrip Haus and I am SO glad we did! There were 3 of us staying at the Haus and they put us up in the Gilbeau room. It was perfect for us with a queen sized bed and a twin. The room was so spaceous! The bathroom had two sinks and the toilet/shower/bath were in a separate room. Darrell was kind enough to wait up for our arrival at 10p on Friday night, and they did not charge us for coming in late (I was shocked and grateful!). He kindly helped us with our luggage and got us all settled in. We went down to the common room to make a few cocktails (we brought our own) and to our surprise there was a mini wine bar set up as well as all of the Blue Bell icecream anyone could want to eat. Even though the main house was full, we really felt like we were the only ones there (until breakfast, that is). I cannot say enough good things about our stay. The breakfast...don't even get me started! It was all homemade goodness. We didn't eat lunch because of how full we were. Table service, and all. I was also VERY impressed with the cleanliness of our room and the house itself. Spick and span! Mrs. Waldrip chatted us up and breakfast and was so warm and inviting. You can really tell that people are her passion and this little place is her slice of heaven. LOCATION: We wanted to go into Gruene and not have to drive far to get back to the Haus and it was just the best, you're right in the middle of everything, without being right SMACK dab in the middle of it. 7 minutes to Gruene, 15 minutes into downtown New Braunfels. It was perfect. Again, I cannot stress how much we enjoyed our stay! Can't wait to take my husband!!

Friendly and a great location!

WE loved our stay. We were made to feel so welcome from beginning to end. The property is historic and relaxing. There is no way to describe breakfast. Unbelievable. We will definately stay there again. We encourage any one looking to stay at this beautiful home with such nice owners. Robin and Ricky

Great start

This was a great start to our first visit to Texas. The friendliness of the owners and the historic atmosphere of the accommodation made for an unforgettable stay.

Good hospitality and outstanding breakfast!

This was only my second time staying at a B&B and I rate this one as excellent in most respects of the services provided. They could use updated TV's in their rooms and the snacks could have been a little better.

Comfortable and relaxing
