The Danville School Room (approx. 864 sq. ft.) is the original one-room Texas school house that was built in 1863. The Danville School Room is a very large room with 18 ft. tall ceilings, and it has an original queen size Murphy bed and a large blue and white marble Jacuzzi tub. The room retains the original wood floors, walls and ceiling from this historic Texas school. Four large windows let in generous amounts of natural light into the room and sitting area with a 65 inch wide-screen TV and two leather couches covered with fluffy pillows. The Danville School Room has a full kitchen with stove, pots and pans, dishes, refrigerator, copper countertop, piano, chalkboard, private entrance and 2 covered porches.
Sweet Retreat Room is a newly built small downstairs bedroom with approximately 300 sq. ft. in the Danville Schoolhouse building. It has private entrance, a king size bed and private bath with a handicapped shower and fold down seat. The Sweet Retreat room was created when one of the porches of the original Danville Schoolhouse building porches was enclosed to add bedrooms. The bedroom has tile floors accented with refurbished antique barn wood, and a writing desk.
Innocently reading the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Newspaper, Margy Waldrip discovered a photo of the Danville Schoolhouse, and it was going to be auctioned to the highest bidder the next morning. This was history in the making. The building was purchased at auction in 1990 by Margaret Waldrip and moved to our property from 12 miles south of New Braunfels. The Danville School Room retains the beautiful original wood ceiling, walls, and floor. In addition to the restored history of the original Comal County Texas schoolhouse, the kitchen features a restored clear glass window over the sink and copper counter top, and 2 beautifully restored oval glass front doors.
