Historic Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast

Historic Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast

Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast is located in New Braunfels, Texas, which is a city found northeast of San Antonio, Texas. The business has a total of ten suites that are available year-round. One unit, Deer Haven Cottage, allows guests to bring up to two pets for an extra fee. Another room, called Kuebler's Kastle, is handicap accessible. Breakfast is provided to each patron staying at the establishment. The bed and breakfast is found in New Braunfels, which is where many German pioneers settled in the mid-1800s. The building was constructed in 1847 and was used as a private home for the owner to raise his family. The current owners purchased it in 1974 and eventually opened it as a bed and breakfast in 1987.


Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast offers ten units for reservation, which are dispersed between three different buildings. The main building, The Kuebler Waldrip Haus, has five rooms, the second building, The Danville Schoolhouse, has four, and the third building is a stand-alone cottage, which is called Deer Haven. The Deer Haven cottage is the largest unit that is offered at the bed and breakfast and has two queen-sized beds and a twin bed, which can sleep up to five people. About half of the units have queen-sized beds, and the other half have king-sized beds. Many of the king-sized beds are two twin beds combined, allowing the owners to separate the beds if the occupants prefer. One suite, called the Kuebler's Kastle, is found on the ground floor of the main house and doesn't require taking any stairs to reach, making it handicap accessible. Each unit comes with a private bathroom, mini-refrigerator, television, coffee pot, Wi-Fi, and free parking. Everyone staying at the bed and breakfast is also invited to attend breakfast each morning they are visiting.

Breakfast is typically served at 9:00 A.M. The owner explains that they have a set menu each morning, allowing guests to pick what they would like to eat from the provided list of options. A few past items they have prepared include fruit, bacon, ham, eggs, casseroles, potatoes, tamales, cereal, and regular or sweet bread. Juice, milk, and coffee are also available. Regarding what they serve, Margy, the owner, mentions, "You could almost call it a brunch." Patrons can inform the owners ahead of time if they have any allergies or special diets that need to be addressed. The owners are capable of making accommodations for gluten-free, dairy-free, and other types of diets.

The dining room can seat up to 20 people, and the common room can seat up to 12 people. A separate area where guests can lounge has leather sofas and a television. Complimentary Bluebell ice cream and homemade treats are available as well. Outside, the front three acres are available for visitors to use at their leisure, while the other forty acres are pastures that the owners use. Margy, one of the owners, mentions that there are barbecues, places to sit, and a small trail that patrons can take to the top of the hill "where they can watch the sunset."

Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast is found on the edge of New Braunfels and is located about five minutes away from the downtown area. Downtown has various activities available, including Schlitterbahn Waterpark. There are several live music venues, such as Gruene hall, and a few museums that detail the area's history. The owners also like to recommend places to eat in the vicinity. A few restaurants that Margy and her son often mention by name include The Alpine House, The Krauses, The Huisache, and Myron's Steakhouse.


The owners would like their guests to enjoy their time at the property. Margy and her son try to help accomplish their goal by spending time talking to their patrons, though Margy mentions that they will not bother people if they would rather have privacy. Regarding how often they interact with those that stay at the property, Margy remarks, "It depends on what they want."  

There are several policies in place at Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast. Visitors are not allowed to have more occupants in a room than what is already predetermined. Deer Haven Cottage is the only pet-friendly unit at the establishment, and there is a limit of two pets per stay. A 20$ fee per night is applicable to each pet that is brought. Smoking is prohibited inside each of the buildings, but it can be done outside. Children of all ages are allowed to come to the business, as five units can accommodate families with one or two children of all ages. 

Many guests have stayed at Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast since it opened in 1987. One person who recently stayed at the inn wrote, "We stayed in Katherine's Attic, which suited us perfectly. We enjoyed the history of the house and the breakfast each morning. We hiked the Panther Canyon Nature Trail, which is only ten minutes away, and we went to the Historic Downtown Mall to look at the many items of antiques." The best season of operation tends to be during the summer, which the owner attributes to the two rivers and waterpark located in the vicinity. When the business started, people could find out about it in a magazine called Texas Monthly. Now, most people learn about Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast by searching online through the internet and social media.


Margy and her son, the current owners of Kuebler Waldrip Bed and Breakfast, moved to New Braunfels in 1974 and are the third owners of the property. The main house was built in 1847 by Andreas and Katherine Pape, who were German pioneers. According to Margy, the home was made of limestone that was about two feet thick and had only one room. They raised their family of five children until years later when the second family purchased the land. The second family added two bedrooms and a kitchen to the existing building. 

Margy and her son bought the house in 1974 and spent some time in 1978 doing large projects and remodeling the home. It was not until 1981, when Margy went to Mexico with several friends, that she decided she wanted to run a bed and breakfast. While she was in Mexico, Margy and her friends stayed in a few different inns, where she found that she enjoyed the environment. Later, Margy attended a seminar that was held by another bed and breakfast owner, who also helped her get her first customers in 1987. Margy explains that she used to be a teacher but chose to quit her previous line of work in 1992 because it was becoming increasingly more difficult to run her business and teach simultaneously, even with her son's help. 

One unique aspect of the property is the second building, known as The Danville Schoolhouse. The Danville Schoolhouse was a one-room school built in 1903. The current owners purchased it at an auction for 1,600 dollars and moved it about 15 miles away from its present location in 1991.
