  • Perfect for events, family or private getaway!

    "Back again! We had a Saturday wedding in Oct. with about 70 guests (far more than we originally expected) and family members stayed on the property in the days leading to the wedding. EVERYBODY loved this place. The owner was extremely helpful from day one. She had suggestions for table & chair rental, port-a-can rental, etc. and she even left a welcome gift basket! She was more than happy to accommodate us and show us the ropes. Now the logistics: the beds were comfortable (very important) and the beds can comfortably sleep 8-10 people (Downstairs: 2 bedrooms with full beds, Jack & Jill bath tub/toilet and private vanity rooms + guest bathroom with shower accessible for all guests; Upstairs: private master with full bed and bath with tub and shower (this bathtub has a great view), bedroom with two twin beds (one is a trundle) and a couch/bed in the common game area. Notice I said the BEDS can sleep 8-10. In addition, the house has blow-up mattresses and there’s plenty of space for them. The HOUSE can definitely sleep more than 8 depending on couple, single, kid ratio. The kitchen is well stocked along with coffee maker (very important too). Now for outside: beautiful and fitting for every member of the family! Wake up and enjoy a cup o’ joe on the porch swing, let the dogs go for a swim, do a bit of fishing, take a walk and visit the neighbor’s horses and pet dear (this little dear made friends with my mom’s Chihuahua and really likes apples!). My list could go on and on. If you’re looking for a city with a lot of night life and things to do, this is not your place. This is a dream home on secluded, quiet property and is the perfect getaway. Our friends are already discussing a group trip. I can’t wait to go back and take advantage of the FANTASTIC library this house has to offer. I really just can’t wait to go back in general. If you’re thinking of hosting a wedding here, you can’t go wrong. We experienced rain (that’s good luck, right?) but I still think it was perfect. Many guests brought tents and stayed the night after the wedding, taking advantage of music and s’mores around the fire, great outdoor surround sound, drinks, games, etc. I feel like I can’t write a review that will do this place the justice it deserves. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home!"

  • 2nd Annual Family Fest- Splendid!

    "We all enjoyed our first stay so much, we decided to do it again this year. We found it to be even better than last year...! All the personal touches were still there, and we were happy to discover even more amenities in this great home. The addition of a second refrigerator in the rec room was perfect for us. Cooking & eating is a big part of our family fun, and refrigerator storage is always an issue. Also a bigger selection of large pots & pans, spices, storage containers and every appliance we needed. (blender, slow-cooker and two coffee pots) Free Wi-fi for all our techno-gadgets, ample firewood for our nightly campfires, fishing tackle and kayaks. The home and backyard is so well arranged and comfortable, and provides ample spaces for either large group gab sessions or private quiet spots for reflection. Chris is kind and gracious and a most perceptive and accommodating host. He genuinely wants his guests to enjoy their time spent at Gruene River House. We can hardly wait until our 3rd annual visit comes around! :-)"

  • Johnson City getaway

    "4 of us stayed here for the weekend when doing a local bike ride. Great accommodations! Particularly enjoyed relaxing on the balcony. With 4 adults, having two baths was especially nice."

  • Great place for a large group

    "Thanks so much for sharing your home with our three families. The owners are very nice people! This house is a good setup for a large group. We had three families with 14 adult children. The area is very quiet and relaxing. We rented a pontoon boat for the weekend so it was nice having access to it right on the property. We brought our bikes and did some bike riding. The kitchen was well equipped. We all loved feeding the deer right from our hands! We met the neighbors, who said they often rent their place in conjunction with this one if you need two houses together."
