Gruene house description

At one time, a romantic B&B...

Presently a paradise for families.....friends ....and ....businesses !

Wake up to the music of birds singing... look out your window and what do you see? Beautiful huge cypress trees bordering the Guadalupe River. If you are lucky you may spot a blue heron, a drinking deer, or at least a lazy turtle on a lost floating branch.

This beautiful property is situated on one acre of land and encompasses 165 feet of waterfront. There is a floating dock housing one canoe and three kayaks. This non-smoking house has eight bedrooms (9 queens, 4 singles, 1 double), 6 1/2 bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchen, piano, 2 living areas each with a dining room table and TV, as well as a gorgeous view of the Guadalupe River. Outside there is a gas grill, a bar-b-q grill, a fire ring, several addirondack chairs, 5 tables with chairs that sit 24+, 2 swings and horseshoe game. Perfect for relaxing and entertaining outside. The entire house has a waterfront view. The house is located half a mile upstream from historic Gruene, where you can walk, ride your bike, tube or paddle down to. And it is only three miles from the Schlitterbahn Waterpark, voted America's #1 waterpark for 10 years and counting. Come enjoy the most beautiful house and cool yard in Texas!
