"Our family of 5 adults and one toddler spent Christmas weekend at the perfectly located River View Guest House. I echo all the positive comments. We were enchanted by the rustic, authentic "Hill Country" charm of the home and the picturesque river view from several rooms. The common areas are spacious and comfortable. The well-equipped kitchen is also well designed, accommodating multiple cooks. Dining and relaxing in the sunroom overlooking the river was a highlight. I only wish our stay could have lasted longer.
The homeowner is as delightful as the property and went out of her way to help me locate and retrieve something I left behind. We are most grateful to have had the opportunity to spend time in this lovely home."

"No home is perfect but this one comes close. It was a great base to visit the Austin area. The 5 bathrooms made getting everyone ready on time for Easter morning services a breeze. We loved the layout and decor. The pool was cold but so inviting we had to get in. The sunning deck got the most use for it's view and outdoor relaxation. If we have occasion to rent in the area again, this will be our first choice."

"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! :-)"
