Where you’ll be

New Ulm, Texas, United States

• This is seriously TEXAS. Small town, big heart. New Ulm has a couple of restaurants. The most popular local stop is the Texas Star Cafe, which offers terrific breakfasts, Texas-style lunch, and dinner on selected evenings. In town is also a new cafe, The Leaky Bucket, serving Cajun-style fare and amazing desserts.
• More on restaurants: Just down the road is Pivo's Ice House, which as a great selection of craft beers, awesome chicken wings (and other food) and a fabulous view at sunset. Further down the road in Fayetteville (approx. 12 miles from the cottage) there are several more restaurants, included the recommended Joe's Place. Just a jot further down the road, you will find numerous restaurants in Roundtop. In the other direction, Columbus also has quite a few restaurants, including some outstanding German food (Schobels).
• If you want to cook, the Hometown Hardware store in New Ulm actually carried food basics, so if you need milk, cheese, eggs, butter, bacon, potatoes and other things, this would be your first stop. North about 5 miles on Hwy 109 is Lindemann's, a more general general store in Industry, Texas, which carries "almost everything" including fantastic BBQ, and terrific local meats, rubber boots, guinea hens and chickens, saddles, and, of course other groceries, like milk, eggs, yogurt, snacks, beer and wine, avocados, and much more. And they serve it up with a smile.
• If you must have a supermarket, you can find both HEB and Brookshire Brothers in Columbus (15 miles).
• And of course, there are nearby international venues for antique shopping in Roundtop, Warrenton, and Wynedale.

During your stay

• The guest cottage will be open when you arrive, and there is a key hanging near the sink. At the end of your stay, just put the key in the same place, and leave the cottage unlocked as you found it or give it directly to one of us.
• One of us will usually be around or close by if you need assistance with anything. We love visiting with guests, but will completely respect your privacy. We're also very happy to share our (so far limited, but growing) knowledge of the area--just ask!
