Fun weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is very eclectic. There were about 16 of us and yet we didn't feel cramped. There were deer in the yard everyday. Good getaway spot! Wish we would have been there in warmer month so we could have utilized the river front!

River Trip for 20 friends from the Dallas area

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at this home in New Braunfels. The location was perfect allowing our group to end our float at the house. The floating dock was also very useful and I noticed several other houses in the area did not have this amenity. Maria was a gracious host, answered all of our questions and even dropped by to say hello and make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here!!

Bi-Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent our 9th Bi-Annual Family Vacation, here at Ms.Marie's amazing home. We ranged in age from 4 to 64, from bookworms to super sports. We really missed those who couldn't make it for whatever reason. Everyone cooked , washed dishes and hauled trash, and everyone laughed and talked and told stories and had such an amazing time!!

The house is set up perfect to set many together or just a couple for eating or chatting. We never even turned on a tv. The house is right on the water, with a dock that got a ton of use from us!. S'mores every night even though it was 95 degrees. The house was always wonderfully cool. We will be back!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful for a family vacation. We had our 2 children and their families(total of 10 including us). Grandkids ranged in ages from 3 to 8. Each family could sleep on their own schedule without disturbing the other (this was GREAT!) Very relaxing and the grandkids enjoyed feeding deer and ducks that would come each morning. We even saw fire flies in the evening (hadn't seen those in years and we live in northwest of Fort Worth). The cypress trees are beautiful. Close to Gruene and Landa Park - something for everyone. Maria is very hospitable and is sincere in wanting you to enjoy your stay. We hope we get the opportunity to go back.

Superb house at a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

8 families vacationed at Maria's wonderful riverfront home for the second time. The house is spacious with separate bedrooms that allow each family to have their space, but still has plenty of common areas for the group to gather as a whole. The view from the house is spectacular, overlooking the Guadalupe River at a prime swimming spot! Kayaks are available on the property for those who wish to explore the river. An in-ground fire pit overlooks the river, and a large covered seating area outside is impressive. Most bedrooms have their own bathrooms, and each bedroom is spacious. A gas grill is available for those who just want to stay on the property. Gruene Hall is a short 5 minute drive, as are companies that offer floating. WIFI is available, which keeps the teenagers happy (although ours were not on their phone most of the time, which was a welcomed change). The wildlife is spectacular - we say owls and deer on the property. This is a great house for those with a large family, or extended family, or for those who want to stay with a large group of friends. Great for people of ALL ages! I highly recommend this property! Maria is great, and was always there to answer any questions that we had! You will not be disappointed!

Birthday Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I celebrated my 30th birthday here. All rooms (and almost every bed) were occupied. Unfortunately this weekend was affected by the "Historic Rains" of MAY 2015. Luckily we rented this GREAT house. Much time was spent inside with enough space that people weren't cramped. A/C units in every room kept everyone cool. Kitchen has anything you'd need, we cooked twice. Beautiful property very close to Gruene. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Gristmill
Car: recommended

Just 3 Miles from Shlitterbahn, 1/2 mile upstream from Gruene. which is the historical district from New Braunfels.

Gruene is a quaint little village bubbling with restaurants, antiquing, bars,teahouses, wineries ,music, and the 1st Dance Hall in Texas (Gruene Hall) as well as The Gristmill restaurant built on the banks of the Guadalupe River.

This property has 168 feet of Guadalupe water front . Since it is located in the lower banks of the Guadalupe river and not on a cliff,, the access to water is easy. It also has a dock where you can fish, swim from, or out a canoe or a kayak in the water
