"Since 1940, the Zubiks have stayed at The Other Place Resort, a rustic riverside retreat without TVs or telephones and featuring a playground, sandbox, volleyball net, horseshoe pits, picnic tables and, of course, the Comal River. Each year, they rent two cabins, including the Zubik House, named after the family in 2000 for their six decades of loyal patronage.
"It's very low-key. It's nice just to sit out under the trees and enjoy family and eat barbecue and float down the river," says Dan Zubik, 61, of Sugar Land, the third child of Jack and Anne." American Profile July 2009
"The Other Place has earned its bragging rights. Tucked away on a tight four-and-a-quarter-acre spread in the heart of New Braunfels-fronting 1,400 feet of the clear, swift Comal River-the Other Place conveys quiet and relaxation in spite of the hubbub surrounding it. The several vaguely Alpine cottages-duplexes, fourplexes, and an eightplex-are perched on a manicured hillside only a few steps from the translucent green water. Tubing, swimming and fishing are the main activities, with plenty of tourist diversions within walking distance." Texas Monthly Magazine April 1987
"I like to vacation in Santa Fe, Aspen, London or paris as much as the next person, but it's so damn hard to get there. When my family has a few spare days, we sneak over to New Braunfels and a cottage at The Other Place...near-perpetual serenity. It's the place that proves time travel is possible, even if it's only to Central Texas circa 1960." Texas Monthly Magazine April 2006 The 75 Things We Love About Texas
