Centrally located between Austin and San Antonio, the historic Martindale Schoolhouse was built in 1921 and is now homeroom to a new school of thought for weddings, special events, weekend getaways, outdoor excursions, and more. First, there’s the expansive five-room villa that was once the original school. Carefully curated with art from around the world, the schoolhouse sleeps 14 and has been fully modernized with a large kitchen, multiple seating areas, a great lawn and a covered veranda with an outdoor fireplace. Next, there's the Martindale Social Hall. Perfect for wedding receptions, dances, corporate outings, you name it... all hosted under the sky and stars within the walls of the original school gymnasium. To top it off, the crystal clear San Marcos River is a short walk away for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and joyous lollygagging. Martindale Schoolhouse...your hall pass from the ordinary.
