The Other Place Resort is a wonderful, rustic hideaway in the middle of New Braunfels. It is the perfect place to relax. This is not the place to stay connected - the wifi is spotty at best - but it is the perfect place to stay unconnected: relax on the porch and watch the

I have just returned from a short trip in New Braunfels. We had the pleasure of staying at The Other Place. The Other Place is located right by the Comel River. It is clean and well maintained. I enjoyed sitting on the deck right by the river. The view was completed by a family

Perhaps I love this place because of my history here. First time when I was a kid, then with my children. I was here when TV's were first installed- it was controversy at the time. Yes, it's pretty primitive- described by my wife about being 1 step above camping. But, it's a

Response from The Other Place R, Owner at The Other Place
Responded 30 May 2018
We are very sorry you had an unpleasant experience during your stay at The Other Place. We strive to maintain a family friendly atmosphere at all times and for several years now have hired off duty NBPD officers to provide after hours security for our guests and to enforce the house rules, especially "quiet time". We regret that you had a problem during your stay and have already addressed your concern with the officers who worked that weekend to ensure it does not happen again. After your departure, we had our maintenance person check all of the showers in your units and discovered that the handles in one unit were reversed i.e., HOT was on the right and COLD was on the left. How this happened, we aren't sure but it will be corrected and we are sorry for any inconvenience. The maintenance person also checked the air conditioners in each of your units and he determined that all were working properly.

"Try a duplex building. Great view of the river"
"Choose a unit on the ground floor."
"We prefer the room on the first floor as the steps can be a little tricky for the kids."
"ALL rooms have a great view! Would be hard to choose which is the best."
"Rooms 124 and 224 are directly in the center of the property... great views."
