Best Place to Stay on the River

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perfect for families. There's plenty of sleeping space and it is immaculate. It is decorated beautifully and has a fully equipped kitchen. It's kid-friendly with plenty to do right there at the house -- tubing, ping pong, foosball, basketball, flat screen tv's inside and out, fire pit, etc.

It's also very private and only a mile from Gruene. There were 11 of us for a ladies get-away and everyone loved this place. We plan on making it an annual event!

Every last detail was perfect! We brought couples from Montana, New Hampshire, Alabama, Florida, and Arkansas into New Braunfels for an AdvoCare team incentive trip. They were not only treated to the utmost in Texas hospitality, but a picturesque home with all the perfect touches including gorgeous Fall decor, movies, games, and quaint places to sit, relax, and listen to the river. They were blown away and so were we! Amazing customer service by the caretakers and owners as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Perfect everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house could not be more perfect for our group of 20 girls. Fully stocked kitchen, coffee bar and more than enough towels, linens, and bed. This house is only 1 mile from Gruene and right off the river - you can float up to the back porch! It could not have been more perfect!

Perfect River House

  • 5 of 5

The Mills Family was back again in 2017 for our annual river trip! And Life is Gruene is the perfect home for our group. It has many bedrooms and a wonderful kitchen. We love to cook and this a perfect gathering area. The river front is without equal in New Braunfels in our opinion. We love to sit on the banks and watch the floaters go by. We appreciate the on site caretakers, the ice maker and the furnishing updates made at the house this year. You won't find better!
