About Robert Barrow
We purchased this property in 1994 as a place to use for friends and family. We have shared our house with many since 1994 and hope to keep doing so for years to come.
Robert Barrow purchased this House in 1994
Why Robert Barrow chose New Braunfels
We purchased this house because it was right on the water and in the Texas Hill Country. We had visited the area several times and just happened to luck out finding the house for sale. The house is priced very competitively to similar properties making a great choice for accommodating 2 to 6 people.
What makes this House unique
The house is centrally located on the upper part of the river. This provides our quests with options for venturing out to other local establishments or attractions. The house sits in a quiet neighborhood about 4 miles from Canyon Lake. The river in this section runs deep and slow. This allows for swimming or just hanging out in a tube tied to our deck or one of the many cypress trees roots. The house is located about 5 minute walking distance from a river outfitter and makes it very easy to rent tubes or rafts without having to drive. We strive to keep a well maintained and clean house for our quests to enjoy.

clean and well kept
all went well view of the river was beautiful and house was as described
would stay there again
We truly did an "Escape" from northern Minnesota winter to Texas sunshine (most of the time). The house provided everything we needed. The location was convenient to all the of the resources we normally used. The owner was always readily available & helpful for any issue that came up. Favorite spot - river view from the deck with a good book! Good 5+ week get away.

Jay thanks for the kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Texas. All the best to you and Gerry.
Stay here! if you float use Little Ponderosa, call them and they will pick you up from the Escape with the tubes and take you straight to the river.
Lovely house on the river
We enjoyed our 3 day stay at The Escape and recommend it for other families.

Wonderful, peaceful weekend on the river
Everything was great. It is a beautiful spot right on the river. The kitchen and the grill made it easy to prepare meals. The couches and the beds were comfy and the place was spacious. Robert was easy to reach. The river access was great. The only suggestion we would have is to put a "private property" sign on the dock as we found that people would come up on our dock to use the rope swing when we had all of our stuff up there.
The house was perfect for us. The house was clean, well maintained and had all the necessities.
We have stayed a a lot of rental properties and this one was by far one of the best. The only thing you need to bring is food, drinks and river toys. The house is in a great location. It is peaceful and quit yet only minutes to town. Everybody agreed that this trip was a definite do over.
