The house is over 3000 sq. ft., with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. This is not a 'run of the mill' house, while all the rooms are under one roof, there are NO interior connecting hallways. Each of the 4 areas has it's own separate entrance, this allows more privacy for everyone. It's a great set up for family reunions or a large group of friends spending a vacation together.

The Texas Room has 1 queen size bed, a sofa, TV, kitchenette and bathroom.

The Farm House has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, living area, TV, dining area table with 8 chairs, full kitchen, laundry room and indoor sun porch. Each of the 2 bedrooms has 1 queen size bed and a TV.

The Garden Room has 2 queen size beds, TV, small sofa, kitchenette and a bathroom.

The Paris Hotel is 800 sq. ft. with 4 queen size beds, a queen sofa sleeper, TV, a table with 6 chairs, kitchenette and a bathroom.

All bedding and towels are furnished.

The Blue Moon Cantina: Our fabulous outdoor kitchen is called 'The Blue Moon Cantina'.

The Cantina is adjacent to the swimming pool and has a 42' gas grill, 2 gas burners, a griddle, sink, refrigeration, a commercial ice maker and flat screen TV. In the area between the cantina and the pool there are 5 tables and approximately 20 chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary at Gruene River Guest House from June 13-20, 2012. It is such a beautiful house - more spacious, modern, and comfortable than even the photos show. Our group of 15 (ages 6-72) were perfectly happy there. Thank you, Cate and Gary!

Gruene River Guest House on the Guadalupe River 1 mile from Gruene Hall
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

AWESOME House and Property!

  • 5 of 5

We held my daughter's Bachelorette Weekend at the Gruene River Guest House. It was the perfect choice! Our group of 20 ladies young, old and in between had a fantastic time. Even when the rain changed our original plans to float the river, we had the covered pool area to use instead. With the number of bedrooms and bathrooms our entire group of ladies had plenty of room to be comfortable and to get ready for our evening out. Cate and Gary were the best hosts anyone could ask for especially when we had a small air conditioner issue the 1st evening. They were there early the next morning to take care of the problem. We enjoyed getting to know Buster, the owners dog. He decided hanging out with the ladies was lots of fun and came over to visit often during our stay. We all agreed this would be a fantastic place to stay and to begin a tradition of an annual mother/daughter river trip. Can't wait to plan another trip to Gruene River Guest House!!!!!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We had my daughters wedding reception at this property. It was perfect. The house is spacious and comfortable. It has the most wonderful outdoor kitchen where we had the grooms dinner. The owners were friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful experience for us! The photos just don't do it justice. I would recommend this property for any number of occasions. I plan to return as often as I can! It is a great location--close to everything!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Really cannot say enough good things about this house. The website doesn't it do it justice for its size, comfort and ability to accommodate large groups comfortably. Every room had a tv and most even have their own fridges. Bathrooms are very modern. The cantina is fantastic. A real great gathering place. Cate is a wonderful host but the house was so well equipped we really lacked for nothing. Its a great location, right on river and close to town.
