We are 1 mile from Historic Gruene, Tx & minutes from New Braunfels, Schlitterbahn, Guadalupe River & Comal River, 10 minutes from Canyon Lake, and 15 minutes from San Marcos Outlet Mall. Come Join Us and experience Serenity, Relaxation and Reconnect with your Family and Friends while enjoying the great outdoors!!! We are located off of FM 306 on Pfeiffer Ranch Road; Once turning right onto Pfeiffer Ranch Road you will take the middle gravel road. Traveling on this gravel road you will realize you are leaving the hustle and bustle of your everyday life behind. Feeling the serenity around you and where you could possibly see Texas white tail hill country deer and cottontail's hopping along the road or cattle grazing in neighbors pastures to your right as you drive. You will then come to a silver gate, upon entering the gate of the Historic Ranch you can see beautiful big oak trees and possible livestock. After closing the gate you will then turn immediately to your right and begin your approach to the fenced yard with twinkle lights on top. You will notice a large sitting area along with 2 picnic tables all for sitting, talking, eating, and of course at night for enjoying the stars above. There is a small cemented area with a rod iron table and chairs and a BBQ grill ready for grilling for your enjoyment just outside the fenced in area. You now have arrived at your destination and can park your vehicle in a large shaded area under the tall oak trees. Upon entering your vacation home you will find a modern kitchen with every amenity that you could need. Your vacation home has a master bedroom with a king size bed, dresser, tv and private bath. A middle bedroom/study with a desk, games, a small library and twin bed can serve as an extra sleeping area or a place to just relax. The third bedroom includes a queen size bed and dresser. Both these bedrooms share a full bath. The home also includes all appliances, including a full size washer and dryer for your convenience. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware, dishes and silverware you need for cooking and eating. You are even provided recipe books with new recipes just ready for you and your family to try--all you need is your food. The living room is a comfortable place to sit and watch local channels, DVDs or VCR Tapes for hours of entertainment. You have many games located in the middle bedroom that you and your family can play at the kitchen table for even more enjoyment, as you look out over the inviting yard. The main charm of this home away from home is there is so much to enjoy right where you are. During the day you can enjoy the views, watch for Longhorn cattle, sheep, horses, deer, birds and all sorts of wildlife. Life will become so tranquil. At night the twinkling lights that surround the yard become an extension of the stars in the sky that seem so much larger then life. This is a Vacation! But if you do decide to venture out, you are a short distance to Gruene for antiquing, shopping, dining, and visiting the oldest dance hall in Texas, which is still operating with local bands and celebrities. If you feel more energetic there are two rivers for tubing, the Guadalupe River and the Comal River, Canyon Lake for boating and Schlitterbahn. Shoppers delights are minutes away at the San Marcos Outlet Mall. Nearby is San Antonio, home of the Alamo, River Walk, Seaworld, Fiesta Texas, El Mercado, great restaurants, and museums. Another trip and little further out are small historic towns in the Hill Country like Fredricksburg, Texas, famous for shopping, and outside of Fredricksburg is Enchanted rock where you can enjoy an outdoor climb to the top of the rock and then a picnic lunch to finish your day. No matter where you choose to go, you will look forward to returning to Stars Haven to your peaceful retreat, to recall your adventures while once again relaxing in the peaceful setting. Though the time will come when your stay will have to end, you will carry the joy of taking a moment out of the fast paced world to spend time realizing and enjoying quiet time and reconnecting with your family without all the distractions. And we hope here on the Ranch that you will enjoy your time with us so much that you come back every year!!!! Also Winter Texans are welcome! Please contact the owner for special pricing. Tranquility and Serenity; gazing at the Texas stars; being in peaceful surrounds. Recommended for Families with young children, Sightseeing, Age 55+, Romantic getaway, Families with teenagers.More
