We have special arrangements with a local River Outfitter for personalized curbside service to our property. Let us know if you need our help setting this up for you, and we'll be happy to make the arrangements, all the way down to your equipment requirements, # of coolers, lunch orders, and specific drink orders - for each individual member of your group. Since we send so many group trips to the Outfitters, they convey a unique discount directly to our Guests, as a courtesy to our Guests for our assistance in coordinating float trips.

The location of the River House & Cabin will enable you take a float trip that begins and ends in Comal County, and IS NOT affected by the new restrictive City of New Braunfels River Ordinances, related to disposable containers, cooler sizes, music volume, number of inner-tubes per person, etc.

'Float Trip to the Backyard'

This is the most scenic and most convenient float trip available. We have made arrangements for the River Outfitter staff to pick up your group in a Private Van, with all of the pre-arranged gear, coolers, lunch, ice, drinks, etc. (We will arrange this for you), and take your group up-River to the First Crossing of the Guadalupe River for drop-off service to begin your Float Trip (~4 hour trip to our property). At the end of your Float Trip, you'll find yourself at our River House's Backyard - where you can jcall the River Outfitter staff, and have them come pick up all the stuff. It's really a great, hassle-free way to go, and you won't have to deal with paying for parking, lugging equipment, shopping for drinks and ice, packing your own coolers, managing trash, or waiting in long lines, etc.
