Maria Halbrook purchased this house in 1989

Why Maria Halbrook chose Gruene

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

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
The house is really spacious with plenty of rooms. There were twenty two people in our group, and there was more than enough space for everyone to be comfortable. The fire pit in the yard is really enjoyable, and the view of the river is spectacular. Outstanding location, as it is minutes to Gruene and New Braunfels. Maria is a very nice owner, who is very accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend this place.

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 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!

Great hosuse on the river

  • 5 of 5
We took several customers with their wives for a relaxing, fun and enjoyable weekend at this gorgeous house. We were a total of fourteen adults (We were three couples and 8 other adults ). We were able to accommodate everyone perfectly since the house is spacious and the rooms are strategically located throughout the house.
The house is perfectly located in Gruene and near New Braunfels and San Marcos therefore the choice of dinning , entertainment and shopping was ample enough so that everyone was able to do what they wished.
The living room was spacious enough to accommodate all who wanted to be inside . The two grilles and the beautiful garden with its view of the river made the ideal setting for a great cookout.
I will definitely stay there again.

Family Reunion 11/07/2013 through 11/10/2013

  • 5 of 5
The Haven was the perfect place for our get together. It was equidistant from all our homes, the amenities were excellent. I had the privilege of meeting Ms. Maria and Señor Sammie. Despite terrible rains and flooding the week prior the house was ready to receive our clan on day of check in. All agreed with the sleeping quarters and bathroom facilities. Access to outlet stores and historic Gruene was great. It was a memorable reunion. We definitely think of staying again.
