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.

Wonderful, peaceful weekend on the river

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect place on the guadalupe

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfectly equipped and plenty large for a group of 6. The pictures don't quite do it justice. Access to the river was decent, and there is a nice dock. It's across the river from a campground that got a little rowdy on the weekend, but I think that's to be expected on the Guadalupe in the middle of summer. At night time, the property was very quiet. We had absolutely no issues or complaints. To top it off, the property managers/owners were very accessible and quick to reply.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Escape is a great place for a vacation. The house is very well maintained.To be able to walk out onto the deck ,sit down and enjoy the amazing view of the Guadalupe River is beyond words. The owner Robert, is always able to be reached for any questions or concerns that arise.He wants to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I would highly recommend this house for any one that wants a "Home away from Home" Thanks Robert for making our stay so incredibly enjoyable.
