Best Place to stay in GRUNE!! Had A Blast!! – Best Place to stay in Gruene !!! Oldest House in Gruene -the quaint antique town overlooking the river - great food great shopping great fun on the river - had a BLAST!! -the owner has the rooms done in authentic period antiques - but with all the modern conveniences- i loved the Purple room its a 2 bedroom suite so my husband who snores like a freight train could be closed off from me by the huge solid pocket doors - the 12 foot ceilings the beautiful hardwood plank floors all remind me of my Grandmas plantation home in Mississippi-the wide veranda where we ate our delicious home made Kolaches for breakfast made me feel like the Lady of the Manor and the location is by far the best in Gruene !!A must see if you ever go to Grune!! close to Austin & san Antonio & San Marcos (all the college towns )
Best good night sleep, in along time! – My husband and I wanted a weekend getaway somewhere in the Gruene area. We have stayed at a couple of B&B's and this one was very nice. The owner made sure we were very comfortable and provided us with alot of extras. The home is within very little walking distance to shopping, Gruene Hall, The Gristmill (best food) and of course the river. We came and went as we pleased, she was very understanding. We had a very comy night sleep and she even had a bottle of wine chilling in our room with glasses when we came back. The morning breakfast was really good. Ourselfs and the other guest all sat around on the front porch, drinking coffee and eating, it was liek old friends, you would have never known that we all just met. Our experiece was a very good one and the owner did her best to make us feel comfortable and at home.
Avoid in Gruene – We will never stay at Antoinette's again.I have stayed all over the area and this was our worst experience ever.The place was not secure and it was cleaned.She served breakfast when she wanted to & on terrible dishes and shared more information than we cared to hear.
Forget this one!!! – This person, (persons) are terrible confidence schemers in my opinion. She (them) and their family have puposely left my children and i without remuneration for services rendered. Contact me @ Father and Son General Contractors for proof and a complete explanation for how i and my wife and children believe this woman and her "kin" should be ignored, do you have a family? Do you get paid for work that you perform? this establishment and it's founder apparently have no regard for either, in my opinion. I have been contracting in texas for over 15 years. There is not one complaint against me. this woman has repeatedly refused to compensate or remunerate me for the services shich we adequately provided to bring her properties to a ready for sale position.
Personalized service – The previous reviewer, coberkrieser, stayed with me at Antoinette's Cottage. There were 10 women. They arrived with box after box of food and liquor. I told them I did not have kitchen facilities available for them, so I can limit the amount of mess I have to clean. I was assured they would be tidy. I also told them no ice chests in the house as they ruin the floors and damge the antiques. They set up a bar in one room using the tabletop as a cutting board for the drinks they were constantly mixing all day as they shopped. They slopped sugar syrup all over the wall, running down to the floor and door trim and pooling on it. On the other side of the room, I found a silk pillow glued to the floor with this syrup. I found lime rinds and food under all the furniture. I took out trash bag after trash bag full of liquor bottles until it filled my dumpster. They waited until after dark to sneak in two mountainbikes, which they parked on the bed pillows thrown on the floor, getting axle grease on it. They were told before checkin that a place would be cleared in the garage for the bikes, and a key to the lock would be provided. Two color coorindinated towels were ruined with hair dye, and the brass soap dish was broken in half. Any time I approached one of them about these issues, I was met with denial and hostility. When my assistant read this review about the spiderwebs and filth she was very angry, as she prides herself on her thoroughness in cleaning. I deny every thing coberkrieser claims as her "experience". I bent over backward to accomodate these women and was met with derision and hostility at every interaction, after I pointed out the pillowcases and mess on the walls. I have had many groups since then and all have been very appreciative of the quality and attention received. I receive many compliments on the beauty of the furninshings, the delicious food, and the personal attention given. Any filth is brought in by them.
Terrible! Worst B&B I've ever been to – I stayed at Antoinette's Cottage for a weekend with some friends and I would not recommend it to anyone. Here are my top 5 reasons:
1) Rooms not ready for over 4 hours after we were supposed to check-in
2)The house is dirty. There were dust strings hanging from the ceiling in my room and pet hair everywhere. She actually yelled at me for getting stains on a pillow that I did not sleep on. I asked to see the pillow and much to my surprise I saw beige foundation stains, lipstick marks and what I'm guessing to be mascara all over it. Since I brought my own pillows and did not sleep on hers, I can only assume that it had not been washed from the previous guests which is totally disgusting! I hope she bothered to wash the sheets and towels instead of recycling them as well.
2) Breakfast arrived whenever she felt like showing up with it. We waited until 10:00 a.m. just for coffee both mornings we were there.
3) She brought her 3 dogs outside and asked us to watch them for her one morning then she disappeared for over an hour and we were just stuck there with her dogs.
4) She actually told us that she is known as the town floozy and tried dating the District Attorney to clean up her reputation but it didn't really work because she still likes to sleep around. Yes, I am 100% serious.
5) There are no common rooms in the house. If you want a place to sit and relax your only option is the front porch which, we unfortunately found out, is overrun with hornets nests and fleas.
