I read all the reviews on our way to Gruene and thought "oh, it can't be that bad." Although the place has great curb appeal and a wonderful location, the owner Cheryle is obnoxious and way too talkative. If you say "blue squirrel", she's going to have a 20 minute story about one. There were additional charges we were not expecting, there is NO fine china as she states in her website, she DOES join you for breakfast and dominates the conversation so you are unable to relax and enjoy your time outside on the patio, and beware that the taxes are now 16% not 13% on website. She accused us of ruining towels but what was on them came from her own bathroom floors.....we will NEVER stay here again. Red Brick Inn was wayyy more comfortable, relaxing and affordable.

We booked Valentine's weekend and contacted the Owner when we arrived in town regarding parking. We never heard from the Owner. We knocked on the cottage door, rang the door bell, and called the Owner's phone twice and never received an answer. We found it very odd for an owner not to be home or answer their phone. We walked down to a restaurant for an early dinner when the Owner called demanding we return to the cottage to checkin immediately because she haven't ate all day! Owner was aggressive, rude and very unprofessional.

With this strange behavior, we informed the Owner that we declined to stay at the B&B and she said, "whatever y'all want to do." Another strange response from an Owner of a B&B. Immediately, we were overcharged for the room (that we didn't stay in). We were willing to take a financial hit to keep from experiencing this Owner, but not be overcharged! Not to mention, we noticed the hot tub with dead weeds sticking out of it.

Big problem is the Owner. Can't really say what the B&B itself is like inside.

Room Tip: Didn't experience the rooms so can't really say.

I made reservations in March for a stay in October, and they double booked. Then they would not even help us find a room. They were too busy. Then she hung up and would not return my calls. Completely unacceptable.

My best friend, her mother, and I visited Gruene and stayed at Antoinette's Cottage. I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, but it turned out to be a perfect place to stay.
The house was charming and quaint, the bedroom a mix of antiques and shabby chic with the most comfortable beds! The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was delicious. The front porch faces the main street, and is tastefully decorated with wicker furniture and a new porch swing. '
Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely return.
Thanks so much,
Steffenie, Lola, and Madge

Room Tip: We stayed in Ernst room, and it was great.

This was by far the worst B&B I've ever been to. Beds comfy but the ceiling fan flopped and banged loudly and looked as if it would fall. Bright light beaming in your room so don't expect to sleep in. No locks on room doors! Misc junk inside dresser drawers. Dogs in the guest area when she's in there. Ate breakfast on paper plates consisting of toaster waffles and a dried up microwave sausage,OJ, and coffee. No functional hot tub. Front porch in disarray. Owner constantly talking about her personal problems and previous guests who gave her bad reviews. Dogs ate our leftovers in the dining area with the guests. For $230 I expected way more than this. All other B&B's in area way exceed this one so keep looking before you come here. This is a few steps from the nightlife and that was convenient and her landscape is pretty.
