WATERFRONT OASIS ON THE GUADALUPE RIVER WITH TWO PRIVATE ACRES

Seguin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Wonderful waterfront getaway minutes to many area attractions

'Rivernest' is a charming one-room cabin located in Seguin, Texas on over two acres with no other guests on the property. Enjoy the shady manicured lawn and over 310' of Guadalupe riverfront just steps away. Relax riverside on two private patios, one shady and one sunny. The river is very peaceful without the crowds in nearby New Braunfels. Perfect for tubing, paddlers, or fishing. The 230 sf cabin includes a vintage kitchen, microwave, blender, coffee maker and fridge. Furnished with a full and twin size bed, full size sleeper and cotton sheets/bedding. The adjoining large covered patio has two ceiling fans, vintage patio furniture, a cooking area with a gas grill with burner, prep area and dining table. Minutes to Seguin town square, close to San Marcos Premium Outlets (25 minutes), New Braunfels (20 minutes), Gruene winerys, Natural Bridge Caverns and San Antonio Riverwalk . Perfect for that Girl's Getaway, romantic weekends, nature lovers, and parents of TX State and TLU students.

The River: This beautiful section of the Guadalupe River, also known locally as Meadow Lake, has plenty of beautiful water year round and is 9 to 10 feet deep this summer. Unlike the cold water of the upper Guadalupe the water temperature is very pleasant. Many Texas rivers are very low this summer due to the drought (be sure to ask about water levels if you book elsewhere). This parklike setting offers plenty of shade due to the numerous century old pecan trees. Sit on the hillside swing or in the shade at the waters edge and enjoy the riverside patios. If you have a boat or jet skis there is a public marina on the river and you can tie off on your private bulkhead. Indulge yourself with your favorite beverage as you watch the sunset on the river from a comfy adirondack chair. With over two beautiful acres all to yourselves enjoy this treasure anytime of the year!

The 'Rivernest' Cabin: This small but well appointed cabin has everything for a great time at the river without the hassle of bringing a lot of things from home. It comes with the following and more:

- Towels and beach towels

- Everything you typically find in a kitchen (except a stove)

- Coffee maker, blender, hot plate, electric skillet and microwave

- Gas grill with burner with grilling utensils

- Tube inflator and some tubes

- 32' flat screen tv/dvd player and movies

- internet/cable tv

- Six adirondack chairs by the water

The Location: 'Rivernest' is centrally located two hours from the West Belt in Houston, less than an hour from San Antonio and Austin. Use this for your base camp to visit numerous attractions like Gruene Hall, wineries, Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio Riverwalk, San Marcos outlets, New Braunfels/Schlitterbahn, Wurstfest and Texas State and Texas Lutheran Universities. Enjoy local venues as well like the Wavepool, ZDT Amusement Park, Starke Park Public Golf Course and Park and local shopping in Seguin. There are plenty of events in Central Park on the town square as well as Chiro Java coffee house. Although you are in a rural setting, you are five minutes from WalMart. A great place to stay when attending Wurstfest in New Braunfels. The 51st Wurstfest runs from November 2-11. Check the Seguin Chamber for more events.

After buying the cabin and falling in love with the area I decided to leave Houston where I had spent most of my adult life. Simplify and downsize (sound familiar?). I am now a resident of New Braunfels.

Cheryl Gordon purchased this cabin in 2005

After vacationing at a friend's cabin in Wimberley for many years, I wanted to find a special property to start a legacy not only for my family but to share with others. A place to start a family tradition, yours and mine, of celebrating summers, graduations, anniversaries and maybe a wedding.

This property was found on my initial serendipitous search. The grounds seemed lush and manicured. There were so many amenities without the huge house and upkeep. It was love at first sight. The cabin has a refined rustic quality and reminds me of how much we don't need for a happy existence.

If you want to get away from the city, and be secluded and close to the water, and you dont mind being is a small space with the people you travel with, then this is the place for you! The house itself is a little smaller than a hotel room, but we werent inside much. It's really about the water and the trees. I would let the water run for a while when you first get there. Its normal it that part of Texas for the water to have an odor when it sits for a while. We would probably go back there in the summer, to swim.

Rivernest is a hidden gem! I've stayed twice. The river is calm and relaxing, the cabin immaculate, the beds comfortable, and the property pristine. Even in August the days were cool beneath the shade of the pecan trees and on the large covered patio. Cheryl answered my inquires and concerns promptly. You really feel like you far from everything but it takes less than 10 mins to drive to town. This is a great place for a quiet getaway to unwind. And that it is dog friendly is a huge plus!

Warning to all that book...The property is for sale by owner so be aware that there may be random people coming through interrupting your vacation to look at property and cabin. We were notified that the owner would be showing the property at 2:30 around 10am the same day, then to make matters worse - 2 more random people came through totally unannounced around 11:45am. This was not the relaxing secluded getaway we were hoping for. Very disappointed.
Owner's Response: Hi, Sally,
Please allow me to apologize again for the interruptions. It is unfortunate that the tranquility of your recent visit was disturbed. The property is for sale and since the prospective buyers are generally from out of town it is sometimes necessary to accommodate them. I would be happy to offer you a discount should you decide to visit again. Your experience at Rivernest is important to me and I thank you for visiting.

Great Place To Stay

We were so suprised with the cabin and lot! It is small but for us it was great, the patio was just outstanding along with the areas on the river. I really enjoyed cooking on the grill that is provided and my wife loved the prep table that was under the patio. I did some fishing but my luck didn't catch anything probably because I was not really set up for it. Cheryl provides everything that you would need except for food, there was even pancake suryp provided it has it all. We had so much fun during our two day stay, we really did not want to leave. I would recommend the Rivernest to anyone looking for a quite beautiful place to spend some quality time. Thanks Cheryl for having us.

This is a great location, the lot is huge so you have plenty of privacy. It was well maintained freshly mown lawn neat and organized. You almost do not have to bring anything but food and clothing everything else you could think of was there, from shampoo to seasonings, plates the list goes on. I would recommend this property to anyone, if you have more than three people it might be a little crowded but that doesn't matter. I enjoyed grilling under the pation cover which was very nice. Did a little fishing from the walkway along the river and used the tubes that were provided. We truly loved staying here it was very nice and not alot of boat traffic which doesn't matter anyway. Cheryl has really outdone herself with this place. Looking forward to returning real soon. Forgot there is plenty of shade, huge trees throughout the lot.

Located 20 minutes from New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn, 45 to San Antonio Riverwalk and an hour from Austin (maybe faster on the new 130 tollway), Seguin is a charming town of 25,000. Golfers will love the Starke Park public golf course located 5 minutes from the cabin. Beautiful course that runs along river. There is also ZDT amusement park, Seguin wave pool and Texas Lutheran University. The San Marcos Outlets (best in Texas) are a 25 minute drive away. Perfect for a romantic getaway, girls weekend, and family gathering.
