Welcome to Guadalupe River Lodge, a gem of multi-level decks, one outstretched over the water with river access. We have the multiple decks and balconies that are hard to find directly on the the Guadalupe for river for group entertainment! This spectacular home accommodations consist of several gathering areas, eight bedrooms, four baths and two kitchen facilities in the large house plus the option of a separate rental one bedroom cottage with private kitchen and bath. Also included on the property is the perfect access from upper and lower riverfront decks with jet ski ramp, canoe launch, swim pad and dock space for two boats. The owner is not responsible for any damages to water sports equipment, boats or jet skis should you decide to bring them.
This spectacular lodge caters to people who enjoy being outside on a beautiful winding river and accommodate a large group. Two of the bedrooms have french doors that open out to a patio deck that overlooks the largest part of the Guadalupe River. When you use the canoes, you can travel up and down the river viewing homes and farms on both sides. The river is quiet with few if any motorized boats.
This home is located on Meadowlake, the 4th lake in a chain of the 4 lakes on the Guadalupe River. Lake Dunlap, Lake McQueeney, and Lake Placid are just upstream. Being a little farther away from the Canyon Dam and Canyon Lake allows you to be away from the hustle and bustle of the large crowds. Go home to a nice relaxing place where mother ducks, baby ducks, and geese float calmly beside your dock. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak, jet skis, or fishing gear and enjoy the river. Relax or get together on the huge concrete patio overlooking the widest part of the spectacular river. Fish from the lower wooden deck just inches from the water.
You will stay in a 8 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2 kitchen fully furnished home with everything you need to relax in comfort, surrounded by nature's beauty and beautiful art work, close to areas to meet everyone's vacation rental needs. Extra accommodations are available for larger parties and weddings. Our secret garden is enclosed with space and seating for large groups. There is a separate private cottage available to rent in addition to the large house should you need a small private space for two with an additional kitchen and full bath.
We are located close to great tubing on the Comal River and the Guadalupe River, and the Schlitterbahn, the largest and best Waterpark in the United States. Only a short drive to Gruene (pronounced 'Green') Hall, the oldest operating Dance Hall in Texas, where John Travolta danced in his beautiful white angel wings in the movie 'Michael'. If shopping interests you, visit one of the largest outlet malls in nearby San Marcos. San Antonio is less than an hour away, if you are interested in seeing the Alamo or enjoying some time on the scenic downtown San Antonio River Walk. Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World are only a 40 minute drive away. The world famous McNay Museum and several other museums in San Antonio are worth the trip. There is a shuttle for rafting you can schedule to pick your group up at the property, supply you with rental inner-tubes, and after you float the river, they will bring you back home.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: I am a former Pharmacist, former world class marathon runner for Nike Shoes in the 1984 Olympic Trials, and Houston Marathon winner setting a Texas record. Traveling as a representative for Nike and my expensive international travels provides experience and understanding of vacationing and lodging. I am currently a practicing chiropractor and own a wellness center in New Braunfels, TX
Why New Braunfels:
I settled in Hawaii for awhile and when I returned to Texas I searched for a property that would provide the same wonderful memories as Hawaii - natural surroundings and a waterfront view like Hawaii. The large beautiful treed lot and the long riverfront at the largest part of the Guadalupe River is what attracted me to the Guadalupe River Lodge. A special place to share with others with memorable surroundings-the large area is a spacious place to relax, enjoy the water amenities and make memories with family and friends of all ages.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are no comparable riverfront properties with private views from several decks and gardens. Our home provides a wonderful large area for group activities both family and business alike. The peaceful and secluded neighborhood has all the conveniences of home as well as the options for celebration, adventure, recreation, and a variety of activities nearby. The surrounding areas provide fun for all ages and our home a peaceful place to return or stay all day and enjoy the waterfront activities of fishing, swimming and watersports. We provide for any variety of social, vacation, and business gatherings all in one place for you and yours to return to and enjoy year after year...
