My husband and I are both natives of New Braunfels. Growing up in New Braunfels was a blessing in disguise. We floated the Comal and Guadalupe rivers every chance we got. There were times that we floated both rivers in one day. As a kid you don't seem to appreciate the beauty of the surrounding area you are growing up in. But now that we are on the other side, we realize how blessed we were to grow up in a community with not one but two beautiful rivers, a quaint little town and Gruene Hall where we along with our parents have danced to many a good songs. We went to Canyon High School here in New Braunfels, married and have raised our family here. We currently live on the property next door to Escondida de Gruene

Myra Zunker purchased this lodge in 2011

We bought this property with the intention of creating a place for families to come and enjoy a relaxing vacation. The home was built in 1976 and is a beautiful ranch style home featuring rock walls in every room. We have spent the last year remodeling and landscaping the home with the help of wonderful family. Family is important to us and we wanted to share Escondia de Gruene so other families could enjoy a slice of what we grew up enjoying. There are lots of beautiful places you can stay on the rivers, but not many that are a private retreat away from the hustle and bustle, a secluded oasis as Escondida de Gruene. You are close enough to enjoy everything New Braunfels and Gruene has to offer, then come home to your own private retreat!

Private swimming pool with shallow sun deck and umbrella for the little ones. Lots of outdoor dining area. Large screen TV in gameroom to watch movies or Hook up your Xbox and play games. Adults can enjoy a game of shuffleboard indoors while watching the flat screen TV above the fireplace. Custom made card/dominoe tables on the back porch made by my Dad, known to our family as Opa. Relax on the front porch in the handmade furniture and porch swing built by my father-n-law, known to our family as PaPaw. Game room opens up to the back porch, patio and pool creating a gathering place for the entire family.

GREAT HOUSE FOR ENTERTAINING!

  • 5 of 5
We had a guys weekend on the river, went to Gruene Hall, and had a blast at Escondida de Gruene. Thank you for being such great hosts -- great communication and the house was as advertised. Aside from not being on the river, the location was perfect -- a short 10 minute trip to either Gruene or New Braunfels. We enjoyed the washer boards, pool, shuffleboard, and other activities available to us right there at the house. The fire pit and patio were great! We will certainly try to come back to Escondida de Gruene for future visits.

FANTASTIC GATHERING SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We gathered for Christmas with four families. Our stay was brief but it was a perfect house for all of us. Plenty of comfortable rooms and beds. The "man cave" garage was perfect for the teen cousins. We will consider coming back in the warmer months so we can take advantage of the many outdoor activities!
