My name is Maria. I am originally from Lisbon, Portugal. I moved to the United States in 1980. I moved to New Braunfels in 1989 and began a Bed and Breakfast. I have recently converted the B&B into a cozy, quaint vacation rental home.

Maria Halbrook purchased this house in 1989

Breath-taking yard with an amazing view and access to the Guadalupe river. You are able to swim, fish or canoe any time. Proximity from downtown New Braunfels is within 5 miles and we are located 1 mile from historic Gruene, TX.

Huge pecan trees and cypress trees provide marvelous cool shade in the Summer.Abundance of birds, turtles, fish, deer, ducks, etc..

By taking the kayaks or canoe up river you have access to white water rapids, and by floating downstream you will quickly find yourself amidst historic Gruene, TX, Many adventures to be found. Plenty of wild life watching awaits. Abounding number of deer, turtles, birds, fish and more.

RELAXING RIVER VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
The location of the home was, fabulous, right on the river. The listing photos accurately reflect the listings appearance which is quite charming. The amenities exceeded my expectations especially in the beautiful & well maintained backyard; seating, facilities, a dock w/ access to kayaks, and view of the riverfront. The kitchen was well equipped, which made it easy to prepare meals. Although the property is very private, there is a nice shopping center nearby for groceries w/ an HEB, etc. Also, the washer and dryers were quite handy. The property was well maintained and clean. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact before and during our stay, & very accommodating. I would recommend the property to a friend or relative, it is especially suited for large groups. We floated both rivers, went to the outlet mall, drove the River Road, in Gruene we enjoyed gift shopping, ate at the Grist Mill & danced at Gruene Hall. We did some specialty shopping in New Braunfels at Naegelin's Bakery & Granzin's meat market, we had dinner at Pat's Place, loved it. One day we took a field trip to Lockhart, the BBQ capital of Texas to sample the eats, well worth the hill country drive. Above all, our favorite thing to do was to sit on the porch in the back yard, enjoy the breeze and just watch the river!

PERFECT PLACE FOR EXTENDED FAMILY FOR A GRUENE WEDDING!

  • 5 of 5
My niece was married over the Memorial Day weekend at Gruene Estate. This was a destination wedding as most of us are in Southeast TX and Southwest LA. We decided we all wanted to stay together and this house was perfect! Maria always promptly responded to inquiries and was very accommodating on our hosting a brunch at the house the day after the wedding for the bridal party, family and close friends. The lawn to the river was perfect for the brunch - everyone gasped as they walked down the drive and caught their first glimpse of the outdoor areas and the river. Maria really has found a little peace of heaven. The hand-off of the property went smoothly and Maria made certain we knew everything we needed to know for the stay. We had every bed filled and the house never seemed crowded. With the different levels, everyone slept soundly with no disturbances. I was shocked when I had to go into town or back to I-35 for some last minute errands. The area was packed for the holiday weekend but we never knew that at the house - it is quiet and peaceful and we were all able to relax and just enjoy our time together. I have raved about the house and how perfect it is to so many people since returning home and can't wait to get another group together for a trip to Gruene. Between wedding functions and not wanting to leave that incredible lawn and view, we didn't have a chance to explore Gruene proper, although the house was perfectly situated for that and is just 5 minutes from anything you would need. There are plenty of steps, but we had no problems with anyone navigating anything and our guests ranged in age from 1 to 87! The kayaks and canoe were perfect for the teenagers and more adventurous adults in the group. Plenty of food storage space in the fridge and cabinets and the kitchen was well-stocked for entertaining with platters, serving bowls, pitchers, etc. Highly recommend!

PERFECT RIVER GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a large family group for a college graduation weekend at this perfect river getaway in Gruene. The house accommodated everyone wonderfully--spacious and comfortable both inside and out with gorgeous views! The setting was so relaxing with beautiful Cypress trees, expansive lawn and rolling river. It was so relaxing to sit on the porch watching the hummingbirds, cardinals and baby ducks. Kids both young and old enjoyed the water activities: canoeing, kayaking and fishing. In addition, there was S'more making by the fire ring, horse shoes and plenty of board games for inside evening fun. The house was a short car ride away from downtown Gruene for shopping, entertainment and eating excursions. Our host, Maria, was so easy to work with prior to our trip through follow-up after we got home. We'd love to come back for a summer vacation!

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN IN THE HILL COUNTRY!

  • 5 of 5
This house was a wonderful haven in Gruene over our weekend! The house was amazing. It was fun seeing all of the deer, baby ducklings, raccoons, ect that lived nearby. The yard is even more picturesque in person than the photos in the listing. The location was perfect, just a mile from downtown Gruene, but with none of the crowds. Maria was also incredibly friendly and helpful- a perfect host!

ANNUAL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was the fourth year we rented this house for our annual golf trip. Beautiful yard, lots of room and a great location. The house and grounds are very well kept and Maria is available if there are any issues although we have never had any problems. I highly recommend this property. We plan to be back next year.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had 7 couples in our group. Everyone was very pleased with the accommodations. The house was setup with everything we needed. I personally was impressed with the kitchen, we had everything we needed to cook our meals. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The view was outstanding and the way Maria has the front yard setup is perfect for enjoying coffee outside in the morning or handing out in the evening. The neighbors even came to visit (the deer). We will definitely be a repeat visitor of the River Haven.
