                              Only five minutes from historic Gruene where restaurants and shopping are top tourist draws in Texas. Floating the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers is made easy by local outfitters who can provide the non-disposable containers required by the new river rules. Close to Schlitterbahn.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: My husband and I are both natives of New Braunfels. Growing up in New Braunfels was a blessing in disguise. We floated the Comal and Guadalupe rivers every chance we got. There were times that we floated both rivers in one day. As a kid you don't seem to appreciate the beauty of the surrounding area you are growing up in. But now that we are on the other side, we realize how blessed we were to grow up in a community with not one but two beautiful rivers, a quaint little town and Gruene Hall where we along with our parents have danced to many a good songs. We went to Canyon High School here in New Braunfels, married and have raised our family here. We currently live on the property next door to Escondida de Gruene

                              Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels:
                              We bought this property with the intention of creating a place for families to come and enjoy a relaxing vacation. The home was built in 1976 and is a beautiful ranch style home featuring rock walls in every room. We have spent the last year remodeling and landscaping the home with the help of wonderful family. Family is important to us and we wanted to share Escondia de Gruene so other families could enjoy a slice of what we grew up enjoying. There are lots of beautiful places you can stay on the rivers, but not many that are a private retreat away from the hustle and bustle, a secluded oasis as Escondida de Gruene. You are close enough to enjoy everything New Braunfels and Gruene has to offer, then come home to your own private retreat!
