Riverfront Rental Houses in New Braunfels

Just west of San Antonio and Austin lies the section of central Texas where New Braunfels is located. It's known as Texas Hill Country, and it was settled by German immigrants in the mid-19th century. Today, visitors flock to the region to enjoy its natural beauty, to take advantage of its plentiful opportunities for water recreation, and to explore small Texas towns where residents remain proud of the German culture of their forefathers. Many houses and condos in New Braunfels are located close to or directly on one of two rivers that flow through town, so it's common for rentals to include a view of the water along with cable television service, internet access, a fireplace, a washing machine, and a deck equipped with a grill.

Family Attractions

Schlitterbahn Water Park

With water attractions and rides suitable for all ages, Schlitterbahn offers 70 acres of pools, slides, tube chutes and rivers of every kind, from pulse-pounding to gentle and relaxing.

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch

The ranch is home to many non-indigenous and endangered species including zebras, giraffes and ostriches. Animals can be seen and fed in the petting areas or while on a safari ride through the property.

Outdoor Activities

Natural Bridge Caverns

Several options are available for exploring this system of underground caverns including tours focusing on spelunking or on exploration of hidden passages. The facility also offers zip-lining and a large outdoor maze challenge.

Rivers and Canyon Lake

The Guadalupe River flows through Canyon Lake on its way to New Braunfels where the Comal River joins it as a tributary. It's no surprise, then, that water activities are a big draw; the lake offers fishing, boating and swimming, and there is tubing, paddle-boarding, canoeing, kayaking and rafting on both rivers.

Historic Landmarks

Although Gruene started out as a separate town in the 1870s, the Gruene Historic District is now within New Braunfels city limits. Part of the National Register of Historic Places, the district is home to a collection of carefully restored 19th century buildings which include Gruene Hall, an old-fashioned Texas dance hall featuring live country music, and Gruene Mansion, now a bed and breakfast inn. Antique-hunting and wine tasting are popular pastimes here.

Golf

Landa Park in New Braunfels has a recently renovated 18 hole public course situated along the Comal River bank. Golfers enjoy scenic views and often spot wildlife such as deer.

Best Season to Go

Wintertime highs in Texas Hill Country are usually in the 50s, and it does occasionally dip below freezing. Summer highs can reach up in to the 100s. There is precipitation all year, with the largest amount of rainfall taking place in May and June. However, the hot weather offers a great excuse to cool off with a dip in the river, and the cold weather perfectly suits the holiday decorations that go up on downtown streets. Spring is very attractive, as it is wildflower season, and fall is when the ever popular New Braunfels Wurstfest is held. This is a 10 day celebration that includes plenty of German sausage and beer as well as carnival rides, dancing, music and games.

Getting There

New Braunfels lies along Interstate 35 between Austin and San Antonio and can be reached by flying into either city's airport. San Antonio International Airport is closer; it has both rental car agencies and shared shuttle service. Taxi cabs pick up fares outside the baggage claim area. Private limousines and town cars can also be booked, and ride share drivers from Uber and Lyft are permitted to travel onto airport property to pick up passengers.

It was a bit muggy in the tipi because there are no windows but other than that there was nothing wrong.

                                                              My best friend & I had a wonderful 4 day vacation. The house is beautiful, the view awesome. Chris & Amanda thought of everything. The house is self explanatory with laminated cards with instructions. They also have a binder with places to go that is incredibly helpful. My only problem with the trip was I didn't want to leave! I love sitting on the deck drinking my coffee. I will be staying there again. Can't imagine a better spot. It's so close to everything we went to greune & shopped & ate at the grist mill I highly recommend that also . Can't say enough good thing abt the place & it's owners. Thank you again Chris & Amanda.

I will be coming back to try the different setups available! My group was thrilled by the set up & location. A hidden gym. The mobile app provided was perfect! My complaint would be the spider webs above the shower, also one of the extra blankets was wet when I covered myself in it the first night.
