House Rules

The stairs to the loft are unusually steep which was necessary because of the small floor plan. If anyone in your party has trouble with climbing stairs, they may need to plan to use the queen bed on the lower level.

-Pet Policy-
Pets are allowed, but please keep pets off of furniture and beds. Bring your own pet beds and towels; do not use our blankets and bath towels for pets. Pets are not allowed to roam free while outdoors since the yard is not enclosed. It would be expected that you would clean up after your pet outside. The pet fee is $20 per pet and we ask that you leave cash upon checkout or contact me to send payment. Additional fees could apply if we find that your pet was allowed on the furniture or beds; if we find it was left unnecessarily messy because of the pet; or if we find damage to any part of the home.

-Linens & Towels-
Clean, fresh bed linens are always provided. Queen beds will be made, but bunks will have linens neatly placed and waiting to be made by guests, as needed. We will also provide the towels needed for bathroom needs but these are not for use at the river. Please plan to bring your own beach towels for after your outdoor water activities.

-Ice & Water-
This house has a country water well. Some guests have mentioned not liking the taste of the tap water so we mention this as a suggestion to bring your own drinking water. There are no ice-makers in the home so make a plan for any necessary ice, as well.

-Paper Products-
We provide a standard and reasonable amount of toilet paper and paper towels at the start of your stay. Depending on your group size or length of stay, plan ahead for additional paper products that your group may need.

A charcoal grill is available, but you must provide your own charcoal, lighter fluid, and matches. (County burn bans do not apply to outdoor grilling)

-Fire Pit-
You will have to provide your own firewood for the fire pit. You are welcome to forage for dead wood on the property. Campfires are NOT allowed during a county burn ban. Please check the status of the burn ban at the Comal County website.

Guests are always expected to remove all trash from the house before departure. Please check all interior and exterior spaces for trash that should be discarded.

-Large Groups-
I have other rentals between Canyon Lake and New Braunfels, along River Road. Please see our other listings by clicking on my picture which will bring you to my profile.

The guesthouse is not perfect. We are continually fixing or upgrading the home as things are brought to our attention. We are in a rural area. We periodically spray the perimeter of the home with strong insecticide, but insects will still manage to find their way inside from time to time. This is normal for a home at this location.

Pictures of the home may show past decor and furniture; including exterior sitting areas. When things go missing, or are broken, we do our best to replace them with similar items. Sometimes we wait for seasonal updates.

This is a private home, not a hotel. We expect our guests to try to leave the home the way they found it as much as possible.
1. Gather used towels in a pile in the bathroom.
2. If you brought pets, please leave the pet fee on the island (or alternately you can send via Cash App - text me for instructions).
3. Make sure all TV remotes are back on the counter tops where they can be easily found.
4. Make sure any pots and/or utensils are out of the outdoor grill and empty your ashes into the trash (DO NOT dump in the yard).
5. Empty the coffee maker grounds into the trash
6. If you moved any extension cords, please put them back where you found them.
7. If you unplugged any lamps or televisions or appliances, please plug them back in.
8. Please wash any dishes that you use.
9. Pick up trash left in the yard.
10. Take all food and condiments out of the refrigerator. Either take them with you or throw away.
11. Take all trash to the dumpster.

The space
We wanted to make this retreat a unique experience and built it with used materials - old barn tin and lots of used wood with beautiful patina. An old beautiful barn door covers the entrance to the bathroom. We are in the country, so you will always see lots and lots of deer and probably many other animals.
Guest access
Guests are welcome to the entire area inside the fences surrounding the house.
Additional notes
No keys to lose or to return! This property provides secure, keyless entry with a smart lock. You can lock and unlock the door with your smartphone, using a unique virtual key or personal entry code issued to you for the duration of your stay.

Important note: The stairs to the loft are unusually steep which was necessary because of the small floor plan. If anyone in your party has trouble with climbing stairs, they may need to plan to use the queen bed on the lower level.

2 TVs are installed - one upstairs and one downstairs. They are equipped with ROKU devices and you are welcome to sign in to your own streaming accounts while here. The Rokus are also how you will access cable tv channels if you desire - through the Spectrum app.

The included coffee makers are a Keurig and a small regular coffee pot.

There is an outdoor charcoal grill provided but you will need to provide your own charcoal, lighter fluid and matches/lighter.

The fire pit is available for you to use but you will have to provide your own firewood. There are times throughout the year (especially in summer) when the county puts a burn-ban in effect, and you will not be allowed to make a campfire during those times. You can check the status of the burn ban at the Comal County website (Grilling is still permitted during a burn ban, it is only campfires that are prohibited).

Pet Policy:
Pets are allowed for a fee of $20 per pet, and we ask that you leave cash or check for the pet fee with the keys upon checkout. Pets must be declared to us in advance - preferably at the time of booking. We ask that dogs remain on a leash when wandering the property. Thank you for your cooperation!

Guest interaction
I am always available by phone or text, and will be happy to assist in person when available.
Neighborhood overview
The neighborhood is made up of 5-acre lots, so all the neighbors are pretty spread out. If you do run into someone, they are all very friendly.
Getting around
We are not close to any public transport, but we have free parking for up to 4 vehicles. Guests have reported that Uber is also available.
