SCENIC RIVERFRONT HOUSE-QUIET STRETCH OF GUADALUPE WITH WATERFALL OFF BACK DECK

Canyon Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House with 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Recently Updated on Guadalupe River

A picturesque waterfall runs across this quiet stretch of the Guadalupe River, creating a perfect place for wading on one side, and for exploring or just putting our lawn chairs in the river and relaxing on the other side. The location is perfect for using our kayak, and you can tube right out our back door. A favorite pastime is watching the river go by from the three-tiered, large riverside flagstone patio. It is also a wildlife magnet, with osprey and heron fishing here. Oh, and so do the fly fishermen, as this trophy section of the river is stocked with trout from November through February directly across the river. All of this can be enjoyed from the multiple layers of decks outside of this charming, well-appointed, and recently remodeled house with all of the creature comforts. The many activities of Canyon Lake, Gruene, and New Braunfels are also just a short drive away.

Special Events and Festivals: The Texas Hill Country boasts many different events and festivals throughout the year. Below is just a sample of them. You can Google any of these for more info...

Gruene Market Days (every 3rd weekend Feb - Nov) -- 100s of vendors for Texas crafts and foods; Whitewater Amphitheater (spring & summer) -- concert venue 3 miles away. Listen to your favorite bands riverside; Texas Clay Festival (4th weekend in October) -- Gruene brings Texas potters to sell their craft and demo for kids; Wurstfest (early November) -- New Braunfels' Octoberfest; Christmas Holidays -- New Braunfels, Gruene, Canyone Lake, and San Antonio all have special events; Live Music -- Summertime brings lots of live music to Gruene & New Braunfels; Troutfest (February) -- Down the street and in our backyard; Fiesta San Antonio (April) -- Music, dancing in the streets, large festival; Kerrville Folk Festival (May/June) -- longest running musical festival of its kind;

Nearby Attractions: Canyon Lake (5-10 mi) - one of the deepest lakes in Texas; 80 miles of shoreline; all the usual lake activities; Canyon Lake Golf Club (5 mi); Schlitterbahn (10 mi) - nation's best water amusement park; Landa Park (10 mi) - great park in New Braunfels; San Marcos Outlet Stores (11 mi); Gruene Historical District (12 mi) - shopping, antiques, Gruene Hall, old town charm; Dry Comal Creek Vineyards (13 mi); Aquarena Nature Center (15 mi) - glass bottom boat & glass bottom kayak tours of wetlands; Wimberley (18 mi) - one of America's 10 Best Small Towns; Natural Bridge Caverns (21 mi) - chambers of underground caverns - a natural wonder; Wonder World (21 mi) - cave and themepark rolled into one; Guadalupe River State Park (29 mi); Six Flags Fiesta Texas (30 mi); Sea World San Antonio (41 mi); LBJ National Historic Park & Birthplace (45 mi); San Antonio (River Walk, the Alamo, the Missions, Zoo) (47 mi); Austin (State Capital, University of TX, 6th Street (56 mi)

Tubing, Kayaking, and Fishing: Tubing: This is a great section of the river to launch your tubing trip. No need to rent a tube, just drive up river and float down to the house or toob the horseshoe, which is just a couple of miles from the house (see our guide in the house for more information)....Kayaking: The river is usually at a level such that paddling upstream is quite easy, even for the kids. Then you can float back effortlessly toward the house. We provide a two person kayak with paddles and life jackets....Fishing: Fishing is a popular pastime on the Guadalupe, and the waterfall in our backyard is a popular spot for fish and anglers alike. Both the Texas Parks and Wildlife and Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited stock the river with trout between November and February, and the fish thrive in the cool waters of the Guadalupe, which was recently voted one of the top 100 trout streams in the US.

Perfectly relaxing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was exactly what we were looking for in a long weekend retreat. The house was very clean and the yard nicely landscaped. The pantry stocked with all the essentials and the closet with clean linens. We mostly enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the waterfall and watching the wildlife. It was nice to be able to bring our dog who LOVED playing ball in the river. We did some fishing, kayaking (provided with the property) and explored downriver from the house. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful property.

The view from the decks was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
The view and breeze on the decks were wonderful! The wildlife was great to watch and the kayaking was a lot of fun. The house was as described: clean, nicely furnished and well-provisioned. We would be happy to return!

A great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at this beautiful home! We spent the days relaxing on the decks, watching the ducks and herons. Everything was so peaceful and quiet! We did do some sightseeing, but couldn't wait to get back! The house and grounds were extremely clean and well maintained. Highly recommend!

Wow - Peaceful and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We didn't want to leave! This getaway was worth a million bucks! The decks are awesome and the perfect place to drink coffee in the morning and watch the wildlife wake up (Yes you have to get up early)! The water was a little chilly and against my better judgement we ignored Chris's tip to not kayak down river. Our son talked us into it and while we had a great time going over the rapids on the way down, we did have to carry our kayaks alot on way back! But what a memory! Everything you need to have a great time is right here!

Treehouse

  • 5 of 5
Have stayed several times. House is always immaculate and stocked with essentials; good owner prepared guidebooks; terrific layout for groups outside due to several layers of patio under a canopy of pecan trees.There are just two bedrooms, but the couches provide additional bedding. Tubes/kayaks/outdoor things included.

This house is on the Guadalupe River in the Texas Hill Country between Canyon Lake and New Braunfels. It is the best of both worlds...you hear nothing but the sounds of the waterfall on this quiet stretch of the river, yet you are only minutes from the many Canyon Lake activities as well as New Braunfels' shopping, restaurants, and Schlitterbahn, the nation's best water amusement park. But with groceries, gas, and restaurants all located within a mile or so from the house, swimming, fishing, and use of our tubes and kayaks right off the back patio, there is no reason to go anywhere else. But, if you must, you are also close to arts, crafts, and antiquing in Gruene as well as over 240 stores at the Outlet Malls in San Marcos. And, of course, Austin, the live music capital of the world, is an hour away. It is even quicker to get to the many attractions that San Antonio has to offer, such as Sea World, Six Flags, the Riverwalk, and the Alamo.
