About Maria Halbrook
My name is Maria. I am originally from Lisbon, Portugal. I moved to the United States in 1980. I moved to New Braunfels in 1989 and began a Bed and Breakfast. I have recently converted the B&B into a cozy, quaint vacation rental home.
Maria Halbrook purchased this House in 1989
Why Maria Halbrook chose New Braunfels
Breath-taking yard with an amazing view and access to the Guadalupe river. You are able to swim, fish or canoe any time. Proximity from downtown New Braunfels is within 5 miles and we are located 1 mile from historic Gruene, TX. Huge pecan trees and cypress trees provide marvelous cool shade in the Summer.Abundance of birds, turtles, fish, deer, ducks, etc..
What makes this House unique
By taking the kayaks or canoe up river you have access to white water rapids, and by floating downstream you will quickly find yourself amidst historic Gruene, TX, Many adventures to be found. Plenty of wild life watching awaits. Abounding number of deer, turtles, birds, fish and more.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Loved our time there.
Three generations stayed here, from 4 year olds to 70 year olds. We loved every day. The owners were especially kind; very responsive and eager to meet our every need. You really cannot beat the location or the expansive yard. The house itself is a little quirky, being an older house that has been added onto many times. But the quirkiness made it fun and different. We had plenty of room to spread out when we needed our personal space. The kitchen is small and was a little hard to work in with our large party of 18. But it worked out and it would not deter us from giving the place an overall 5 star rating. We will look forward to rebooking next year!
We will be back!
We absolutely loved staying at Lynnae and Jeff's property, and they were wonderful hosts! You really can't beat this location. We had a really large group and while the layout of the house is a bit funky it was perfect for our group with all of its rooms and bathrooms, giving us a lot of space. We spent the majority of our time outside enjoying the river front location, yard games, river toys, and proximity to Gruene. Everyone kept saying what a perfect house it was for our float trip and we are already looking forward to booking it again next year!
A Most Memorable Weekend!
We are from Michigan, and we were in New Braunfels for my son's wedding. We were joined by my sister and her family. All total, our party was 17; 12 adults and five children, with the ages ranging from 19 months to 61 years.
Personally, the most attractive feature is each bedroom basically has it's own bathroom. This was huge for me.
The scenery is beautiful, with many tall trees providing ample shade.
The kitchen was well stocked with coffee machines, pots and pans, etc. Plenty of towels, both for indoor use and outdoor use.
The property managers made sure we had plenty of life jackets for our five grandchildren. They are very nice and accommodating.
Honestly, I can't say enough good things about our experience here. We would definitely visit again!
Beautiful house! The owners are very nice and accommodating. The house is right on the river and peaceful. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Jamie, Thank you for taking time to review Gruene River Haven. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards, Lynnae & Jeff
Great home and location!
Really great home and location right on the river in New Braunfels. Spacious enough for all the guys we had down there for a bachelor party. Also, Lynnae and Jeff were very gracious hosts and even brought us an Amazon fire stick so we could watch the Masters! Really appreciate you sharing your lovely home with us. Thanks again!
Thank you for the review. It was great to see everyone having a good time and playing games. We hope to see you again!
Perfect location. House is large with a lot of bathrooms, plenty of blankets, pillows and towels. Kitchen had enough dishes and utensils for an army. Needs some updating but you can’t beat the location and the property itself!! We can’t wait to go back.
Dear Courtney :
