About Sandy Street
Retired professionals live across the lake on the property and offer on site assistance. Owners are enjoying a second career as ranchers and stewards of the land.
Sandy Street purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Sandy Street chose New Ulm
If you want to get away from the city for a week, or weekend, this is the place. Cottage sits within 100+ acre ranch, surrounded by game fence, enclosing exotic deer and cattle. Beautiful skies and trees during the day. Unlimited stars at night.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Explore within 25 miles: RoundTop antiques, Historic Columbus, New Ulm, Cat Spring and LaGrange. Don't miss the Painted Churches tour near Schulenberg. Easy access to I-10 and Metropolitan KATY/Houston area. However, most guests prefer to stay home, home on the ranch, where the deer and the antelope play.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Wonderful country escape
Had a wonderful time. There were 8 of us. Plenty of room and lots to do. Great time
This was an amazing stay. The family is so sweet, and right there if we needed them. Our stay had no hiccups everything was perfect. The home was decorated amazing, we rented for our company Christmas Party and it was perfect! We had three families staying and each family wanted contact information with plans of returning. I carried my grand-kids along because of the description with the animals, horses, donkeys, deer, cattle, my grand kids went through two bags of apples during our stay feeding the animals. They will never forget this stay-cation they had a blast. The guys fished while we drove around on the golf cart feeding the animals taking pictures. We all loved every moment of our stay. Thank you both for being so accommodating and kind. My return is definite. Your place is amazing!
Your group is exactly the kind of folks we like to have. You appreciate the best that nature has to offer, which is why we own the ranch. We feel fortunate to have it and grateful to share it with others.
Beautiful home and lots to do!
We stayed for the first time early this summer and we were taken back on how beautiful the property was and could not wait to return.
We returned last weekend and had a blast again. We setup a projector and watched scary movies, made s’mores, and hot chocolate. The kids love riding around the property and seeing all the animals. They also love playing in the lake and kayaking. We will definitely return again soon!
Private getaway with lots of fun activities
My wife and I took our seven kids to this property and we had a blast! The lake was especially nice for fishing, paddling around and for getting out of the Texas heat. Six of the kids (and Dad) all caught fish and we all had fun riding around in the golf cart. The owners live across the lake and they're Texas friendly. Nice getaway for those wanting to get away from it all.
It was a pleasure to host your family. We marveled at how polite and pleasant your 7 children are. Your visit embodied what we try to offer guests: serenity, life off the grid, and renewal in the country. We certainly welcome your return anytime
Rustic but we had everything we needed and more ! Very nice couple that own the place too!!
My family all came for a lovely weekend at the lake. Everything was great and the kids loved the animals and canoe rides !!
Awesome for a total detox.
I stayed at Luther and Sandy's home for my 21st birthday celebration with my family and close friends. I was unaware upon arriving how spotty getting wifi or cell reception was, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It was cozy each day being there and riding the golf cart, swimming, exploring the property, making fires, and the best part turned out to be the disconnect form the outside world. It allowed everybody to connect together and have the best time possible. They both were so welcoming and answered all of the questions I had promptly. Overall, it was amazing! Such a great place for families in the summer.
We are glad you recognized the secret of this place...serenity. We should advertise poor WiFi and cell reception as a plus. Everyone needs to unplug for a while and enjoy face to face contact. We enjoyed watching your family swim and explore. Have another birthday and enjoy it with us.
