“Wonderful laid Back relaxing place”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

First, don't let the word
Resort fool you. This is very upscale Cabins in the woods! Love the atmosphere -very laid back. You honestly feel like you are in the woods, except you are in the middle of town. Perfect for easy access to all river activities and to Schlitterbahn. Secluded family place. We have stayed multiple times and WILL do a again. Do not expect the Hilton. It is cabins. Your are at the River!!! Enjoy the peace and nature. We had an own ten feet from our deck the first morning.

The location is second-to-none: the property is on a peninsula surrounded by the Comal River and Schlitterbahn is a very short distance away. The accommodations could be updated--hence the title of the post. Overall, a great place to take the family. There is a playground inside the grounds that kept our children very entertained when we weren't floating down the river.

I have stayed at The Other Place for many years and always recommend a stay to anyone that's looking for a nice place in the heart of New Braunfels. The owner and staff are always friendly, they keep the property up and looking nice, and the rooms are just close enough to the Comal River. I especially like the quietness of the area at night time, not a bunch of young people partying up late.

Room Tip: Reserve early, this place tends to fill up.

I went there with my parents and brothers and sisters to celebrate my parents 65th wedding anniversary and dad's 89th birthday. The cabin we stayed in was clean, attractive and more like an apartment than a hotel room. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The resort is on the Comal River where you can rent inner tubes to float down the river. They drive you and the tubes to the starting place and you get out at the resort (about an hour and a half). The town nearby was very small and quaint with lots of nice stores. All in all, The Other Place Resort was wonderful. Free Wi-Fi with the rooms so you can check emails etc. I would go back there in a heartbeat.

We have stayed at The Other Place for the past 4 summers during our family trip to New Braunfels. We love the environment and the family atmosphere of this "camp" like setting. A nice family runs the place and is very happy to help their guests. We love to sit on the banks of the river at the resort ....they have maintained it in a natural state, so not just concrete walls. You really can experience the beautiful river. The park in the center has great grills, lots of room for kids to play and a volleyball court. We always enjoy our visits!

Room Tip: Great views of the river in some of the rooms!

In the middle of New Braunfels is a hidden paradise. Our family has been tubing the Comal for over 40 years. Since Schlitterbahn has commercialized the river we have found a home at "The Other Place". Hidden just beyond the trees, beautiful, comfortable with all the amenities you need to make your family's vacation memorable. Cabins are perfect for families of all ages. BBQ pits, volleyball court, horseshoes and playground. Staff was awesome. We plan to come back every year. Don't change a thing!

Another wonderful year on the river! The owners here make sure we want to return year after year, with the family-friendly courtyard, manicured lawns, comfortable and well stocked cabins AND the Comal River at our doorstep.

We highly recommend this for families of all ages!
