Recent New Braunfels reviews

  • Spacious retreat venue

    "Our family of 8 adults enjoyed a relaxing and playful getaway from the city at this beautiful home. The spacious kitchen and living room with panoramic views of the Guadalupe River brought us together, but there were also plenty of places and activities for everyone -- awesome rope swing into the river (I watched from my floatie!), ping pong and air hockey tables, a fully equipped kitchen for our foodies (not bare bones, this kitchen has everything), outdoor grill, a family of 3 ducks, hummingbirds, lovely furnishings, and a good location (close to Schlitterbahn and Gruene Hall). Beaulieu provided us with the setting we needed to come together. Great outdoor sitting and hammock spaces too, for chilling. Unforgettable, thank you!"

  • Wonderful, relaxing stay

    "Our family of three stayed at this cute home. We had a wonderful time. The scenery was wonderful and it was truly a relaxing stay. We were also very close to Gruene and New Braunfels. The owners were great. We would definitely stay again. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to have the convenience of a home; but still close to everything!"

  • Guadalupe River Retreat

    "We really enjoyed our stay and especially enjoyed the pool table…that was an unexpected surprise (either I missed it on VRBO or the picture has since been added). We also enjoyed watching the trout fisherman across the river landing some really nice fish. Overall a really nice, roomy cabin on the river that was just what my family needed for some quality down-time over Christmas. I would just add one bit of caution, we had no cell-phone connectivity (we're on Verizon), so if you're someone who texts constantly that might be a problem for you (it wasn't for us). The cabin does have internet and Wi-Fi so that was enough connectivity for us."

  • Great Cousin Reunion

    "24 Cousins gathered for our Annual October Reunion. This was our third time to meet but our first time to Gruene. We are in the 55 plus age group. Finding a place to accommodate such a large number at our age can be difficult. This house was perfect. It had plenty of beds, gathering space, and access to the River that was safe enough for us to enjoy. It is close enough to the shopping area and so we were able to get out there and enjoy that aspect of Gruene. Chris Nolan, the owner, was such a nice person to work with. He patiently answered all my questions and concerns about a few special needs. All agreed this is a place we will revisit. From a very happy Nana!"

New Braunfels Travel Tips

A slice of old Germany situated in the center of Texas hill country, New Braunfels is truly a destination like no other in America. Located 40 miles south of Austin between the capital and San Antonio, New Braunfels is easily accessible. Founded by a German prince with a group of farmers and craftsman in 1845, the town has been built around charm and hospitality and boasts an undeniably unique history, making it a perfect vacation destination for families, friends and couples alike.

New Braunfels Attractions

If you're heading to the Lone Star State for your next vacation, then New Braunfels should definitely be on your list of places to visit. Infused with German culture since the day of its founding, the area regularly hosts events and cultural experiences like Wurstfest, a celebration of German culture with an emphasis on food and beer. Needless to say, this event makes a phenomenal destination for food lovers from all over.

Held on the banks of the Comal River, Wurstfest attracts visitors from all over the country, and the delectable Bavarian sausage, treats and beer are the main stars of the show. Spanning the course of 10 days in early November, the festival features fantastic cuisine, traditional Bavarian performances (yes, there will be polka) and carnival rides for the kids. If you're heading to New Braunfels in the autumn, try to plan your trip around the festival so that you and the family won't miss out on the fun. Just remember to look well in advance for lodging, as the town tends to pack out during this event.

Things to Do in New Braunfels

In addition to all of the exciting German events New Braunfels offers, it also boasts a ton of ways to have fun on the open water. With multiple rivers and lakes all within a short drive of the Texan town, fun in the sun is never hard to find for tourists or residents on a hot day. Whether you're looking to raft down river rapids with friends or take in a modern water park, New Braunfels is best seen with a swimsuit and sunscreen.

New Braunfels is the home to an award winning waterpark, the aptly named Schlitterbahn. Get ready for thrills, because with rides like the Master Blaster, Black Knight and Wolfpack, there's going to be plenty of adrenaline to go around. If you'd rather kick back, you can even rent your own cabana, don your shades and work on your tan. The party doesn't stop when the sun goes down either, as the Schlitterbahn hosts movie nights and an arcade - perfect for a family night out.

Nature lovers will feel right at home in the Texas Hill Country, particularly in New Braunfels. Just slightly outside of the city you can find Tube Haus, a river rafting and tubing outfitter that can help you strap on a life jacket, get comfortable on inner tubes and safely coast along the Guadalupe River with ease. Try floating the "Horseshoe Loop" one of the most famous and scenic routes around the area due to the fantastic views offered as you float lazily along its course. Float trips can take between two and five hours, depending on what route you ultimately decide on. Adult beverages are allowed on the river, so long as it isn't being stored in a glass container, so remember to bring along something cold to enjoy while you're afloat.
