Birthday Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I celebrated my 30th birthday here. All rooms (and almost every bed) were occupied. Unfortunately this weekend was affected by the "Historic Rains" of MAY 2015. Luckily we rented this GREAT house. Much time was spent inside with enough space that people weren't cramped. A/C units in every room kept everyone cool. Kitchen has anything you'd need, we cooked twice. Beautiful property very close to Gruene. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a family reunion. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy. The outdoor space right on the river was amazing. That is where we spent most of our time. We will be back again!!

Laid-back corporate retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our "laid-back" corporate retreat. With 9 people in attendance, 7 people got their own rooms (only 2 co-workers had to share). We appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and the BBQ pits, as we cooked about half our meals. Maria was a wonderful hostess, and she was very available and responsive both prior to and during our stay. As we were there in early June, and the weather was not too hot yet, our corporate group was able to hold their discussions both inside, in the living room, as well as outside, in the shade with the lovely view of the river flowing past. What I most appreciated about our stay was Maria's genuine interest/concern that our group have a good time. She suggested activities for us, and her suggestions were absolutely spot-on for our group. This setting was so nice, that I'm planning on gathering a group of friends together and coming back for another stay - thank you Maria!

Big group, big house, lots of rooms, bathrooms

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group and this property worked well for us. The grounds are very pretty and there was plenty of seating for everyone and the kids enjoyed playing on the dock. Each family had a separate bedroom and bath which is a plus. The kids were able to take over the downstairs area which had plenty of beds and a bathroom they could share. The location was great! We will return!!

Big House, lots of room, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had quite a few people for a high school reunion gathering of close friends, and this house on the river, near Gruene, TX worked perfectly. The kitchen had everything we needed, and outside there are tables and chairs and some water toys and a small dock. The location works very well since it's so close to Gruene. The rafting companies will actually pick you up and drop you off back at the house, door to door service.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful for a large group! The adults had their own rooms, the smaller cousins could sleep in a room together. The kitchen was large and well stocked with dishes and utensils. There were lots of bathrooms, which is VERY important. The grounds were awesome, plenty to do. The weather did not cooperate, but the kids fished, kayaked and we built a fire anyway!

The owners do a great job of keeping this property up. It is well taken care of and clean. We will be back! Thank you, Maria!

Just 3 Miles from Shlitterbahn, 1/2 mile upstream from Gruene. which is the historical district from New Braunfels.

Gruene is a quaint little village bubbling with restaurants, antiquing, bars,teahouses, wineries ,music, and the 1st Dance Hall in Texas (Gruene Hall) as well as The Gristmill restaurant built on the banks of the Guadalupe River.

This property has 168 feet of Guadalupe water front . Since it is located in the lower banks of the Guadalupe river and not on a cliff,, the access to water is easy. It also has a dock where you can fish, swim from, or out a canoe or a kayak in the water
