GRUENE RIVER GUEST HOUSE ON THE GUADALUPE RIVER 1 MILE FROM GRUENE HALL

New Braunfels House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 20

Gruene River Guest House sits on 2 beautiful acres on the Guadalupe River. The property is within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and 'toobing' businesses in the historical hamlet of Gruene, Texas.

With 2 acres and 130 feet of waterfront, the relaxation never ends.

Bring your fishing pole, your golf clubs, and a good book. Enjoy a picnic by the river, or a nap in a hammock under a shade tree.

If you enjoy live music, the property is 1 mile from Gruene Hall.

Landa Golf Course is a 5 minute drive. UPDATE Landa Golf course is under construction. There are golf courses within a 20 minute drive.

If you enjoy the many water activities offered on the Guadalupe River, you can enter upstream using one of the shuttle services, and exit the river on the Gruene River Guest House waterfront.

Please check the calendar for availability.

Please call if you have any questions. 512 773 8327

The house is over 3000 sq. ft., with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. This is not a 'run of the mill' house, while all the rooms are under one roof, there are NO interior connecting hallways. Each of the 4 areas has it's own separate entrance, this allows for more privacy for everyone. It's a great set up for family reunions or a large group of friends spending a vacation together.

The Texas Room has 1 queen size bed, a sofa, TV, kitchenette and bathroom.

The Farm House has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, living area, TV, dining area table with 8 chairs, full kitchen, laundry room and indoor sun porch. Each of the 2 bedrooms has 1 queen size bed and a TV.

The Garden Room has 2 queen size beds, TV, small sofa, kitchenette and a bathroom.

The Paris Hotel is 800 sq. ft. with 4 queen size beds, a queen sofa sleeper, TV, a table with 6 chairs, kitchenette and a bathroom.

All bedding and towels are furnished.

The Blue Moon Cantina: Our fabulous outdoor kitchen is called 'The Blue Moon Cantina'.

The Cantina is adjacent to the swimming pool and has a 42' gas grill, 2 gas burners, a griddle, sink, refrigeration, a commercial ice maker and flat screen TV. In the area between the cantina and the pool there are 5 tables and approximately 20 chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary at Gruene River Guest House from June 13-20, 2012. It is such a beautiful house - more spacious, modern, and comfortable than even the photos show. Our group of 15 (ages 6-72) were perfectly happy there. Thank you, Cate and Gary!

A great place to get married!

  • 5 of 5
There are so many wonderful things that make Gruene River Guest House an amazing spot in the middle of Texas - the two most important are the house and grounds itself which are beautifully kept and decorated, and also Cate, the owner and manager of the site. We had our wedding there and it was a perfect getaway from Austin or San Antonio, nestled right on the river in the scenic New Braunfels/Gruene area.

Cate helped us make it a truly one of a kind wedding destination, as we could host many guests on site, and also have the ceremony and reception in one spot - under the dappled light of the live oaks by the river next to the rustic gazebo (which also was the dance floor!). Our whole weekend was unforgettable and lovely, and I highly recommend anyone who is interested in hosting a party of any size or kind to seek out Cate and the Gruene River Guesthouse.

I'm hoping to make a return visit for our first year anniversary!

Best Place! Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We planned a Christmas-New Year's vacation near San Antonio, Texas. There were 14 adults and 3 children in our party. We rented the house for two weeks arriving on 12/22/2011.

We made our rental decision based on the fact that the house looked good on the posted photographs and it had very good reviews but we honestly did not know what to expect so we were a little anxious about it. When we arrived, we were relieved to see that the entire house actually looked much better than what we had seen in the website and that the property is very well taken care of.

All the common areas, the 5 bedrooms and their respective bathrooms were clean and well taken care of. The dining table was able to accommodate 8-10 people at a time. In the kitchen there were enough pots,pans and utensils to cook meals without problems. We mostly used disposable plates, glasses, cups and utensils to make things easier for everyone.

The outside kitchen was wonderful. We used the outside icemaker and the refrigerator to store beverages and some food. Gary was kind enough to have the outdoors firepit ready for us and we used this every night.

Even though all the rooms in this house are adjacent to the main house, three of them are totally independent of the main common areas so that the people sleeping in these rooms had full privacy and independence when they wanted it. The large room (Paris Room) above the garage had plenty of space and enough beds to sleep all of the young (and one or two not so young) boys in our party comfortably.

All the bedrooms were perfect, with good quality mattresses, pillows and linen. The bathrooms were clean, in good working order and well-furnished and the owners provided all necessary toiletries.

Something very attractive to us was the fact that we stayed close to San Antonio but not in in the city itself. In addition we were close to Austin, TX and to the two San Marcos Outlet malls.

Cate and Gary live within the property but their house is far from the main house (at the end of the property, by the river) so that they provide you total privacy. However they are always available when needed. They both were truly very welcoming of our large group and graciously accommodated to all of our needs. We cannot thank them enough for their hospitality and their kindness.

Based on our experience, my wife and I would strongly recommend this property for large groups seeking to spend a great time in a first-class property near San Antonio.

Perfect River Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to GRGH for the past 3 years and have always enjoyed our stay! The place is fantastic, they keep the place very clean and it's in the perfect location for river floating and access to Gruene! Cate and Gary are so nice and extremely accommodating and flexible with whatever you need. We can't wait to go back!

Excellent Place for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for two weeks. Since the reservation was made online,we mostly made our decision based on the fact that the house looked good on the posted photographs and it had good reviews but we honestly did not know what to expect so we were a little anxious about it.

We were relieved to see that the house actually looked much better than what we had seen in the website. Please be advised that the photographs TRULY do not make justice to the place.

All the common areas, the 5 bedrooms and their respective bathrooms were clean and well taken care of. The five bedrooms were perfect, with good quality mattresses, pillows and linen. The bathrooms were clean and well-furnished and the owners provided all necessary toiletries.

The common area was comfortable and cozy and the dining table was large enough to accommodate 8 to 10 people at a time. In the kitchen there were enough pots, pans and utensils to cook meals for this large group of people without problems.

The outside kitchen was wonderful and we used it frequently. This area has a flat screen TV and we watched football games there. Also Gary had the outdoors firepit ready for us and we used this almost every night.

One of the great advantages of this house is that even though all rooms are adjacent to the main house, three of them are totally independent so that people sleeping in these rooms have full privacy and independence. And the large room above the garage had plenty of space and enough beds to sleep all of the young boys in our party comfortably.

The house is strategically located, close to San Antonio, Austin, and the two San Marcos Outlet Malls. It is also near downtown Gruene and close to New Braunfels.

One final note is regarding the owners, Cate and Gary. They live within the property but their house is reasonably far from the main house so that they provide you total privacy. However they are always available when needed. They were very welcoming of our group and graciously accommodated to all of our needs (i.e. Cate arranged for a wireless internet connection system to be installed while we were there and she set up a Christmas tree in the common area for us).
We cannot thank Cate and Gary enough for their hospitality.

Overall we had a great time and keep fond memories of our stay at the Gruene River Guest House. I would definitely recommend this property for large groups seeking to spend a great time in a first-class property.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5
We had my daughters wedding reception at this property. It was perfect. The house is spacious and comfortable. It has the most wonderful outdoor kitchen where we had the grooms dinner. The owners were friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful experience for us! The photos just don't do it justice. I would recommend this property for any number of occasions. I plan to return as often as I can! It is a great location--close to everything!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5
Really cannot say enough good things about this house. The website doesn't it do it justice for its size, comfort and ability to accommodate large groups comfortably. Every room had a tv and most even have their own fridges. Bathrooms are very modern. The cantina is fantastic. A real great gathering place. Cate is a wonderful host but the house was so well equipped we really lacked for nothing. Its a great location, right on river and close to town.
