'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

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.
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.
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.
