We had the most amazing stay. This was our 2nd trip and we'll be back for a 3rd. The house is spacious and the backyard is big and lush! There is plenty of seating inside and out and the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessities. We made lots of memories around the kitchen island, fishing on the pier, swinging on the picture perfect swing and floating in the river. We can't wait to return.

A little piece of paradise on the Guadalupe River

  • 5 of 5

We had our first family reunion at The Family Tradition River House on Labor Day following Harvey for my family from Houston. This was the perfect place to relax, reconnect and reflect on the many blessings our family has received from God. The house is complete with everything you can possibly want..... cold air conditioning, open floor plan, pool table/ping pong, gorgeous grounds and views from inside and outside on the ample porch and sleeping accommodations for 18 (four bedrooms and two and 1/2 baths). All we needed was the food we wanted to eat and it was so nice to have the large refrigerator to store all our perishables. The kitchen is perfect for serving family style - plenty of counter space and great variety of pots pans, bowls and serving utensils. They even have dishes, however we love the convenience of paper plates. Our family ranged from 20 months to 90 years young. At one point, I took a video of how many activities were being enjoyed at precisely the same time: some were swimming, some were playing cards, ping pong, kids playing on pavilion, others watching football game, cooking in kitchen and on barbecue pit. I highly recommend The Family Tradition River House. We are trying to coordinate what weekend we can come next year.

Amazing all around

  • 5 of 5

The home is very spacious and comfortable with everything we could need. The grounds are perfect without a sticker-burr in sight and the river isn't too busy, just enough to enjoy a friendly wave ever now and then. The water is calm enough to swim and float without having to be tired up to the dock and the temp is perfect. The owners are super friendly and respond very quickly to all communication. Will be back next year!!!!!

It is about a 15 minute drive to Schlitterbahn, 50 minute drive to Seaworld in San Antonio, 35 minute drive to the Outlet Mall in San Marcos and next door to the Bandit Golf Course, However, once you get here you probably will not want to leave!
