Treasure on the River

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 friends voted this gorgeous place as our favorite rental in almost 20 years of fall getaways. We were thrilled with the setting among lovely homes in an up-scale neighborhood. The families of deer roaming everywhere added to the charm.. The pictures can't possibly do this home justice. The unobstructed views of the river were spectatular from both decks, and grounds were well maintained with secure lighting. We didn't realize that the entire home was upstairs. It was no problem for us, but could be for people with mobility issues. It was well equipped with everything we needed, and every room was clean and comfortably decorated. We did some cooking and enjoyed the modern kitchen. This rental is centrally located, and we spent a lot of time exploring Gruene and New Braunfels. Shopping at the Clay Festival and in Gruene was fun and music at Gruene Hall was a special treat. We ate a couple of meals at the Grist Mill, and highly recommend it.. Sitting on the deck in the mornings and evenings were the highlight of our visit. We couldn't believe we were actually in this idealic setting. We enjoyed meeting the owners, Johney and Derinda. They couldn't have been nicer or more responsive. All in all, it was the perfect rental, and we hope to return.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Larned Home, to attend Texas State University annual "Family Weekend". We had Saturday all lined up with festivities, tailgating and the football game. Things did not turn out as planned, my son got very sick and we were unable to attend. But, all was not lost! We stayed tucked in the quite and peaceful home on the river. We went to the nearby HEB and stocked up on fishing poles, meat to cook out and a few family games. We spent much of the day fishing and watching tubers float by. It was so peaceful and relaxing, we saw lots of deer roaming the yards, ducks flying over head, and my favorite fire flies flying thru the night. We barecued on the grill, and relaxed on the big beautiful porch listening to the water flowing down the river. As the song goes "The Stars are Big and Bright deep in the heart of Texas", the star gazing was amazing! The next morning we woke to a beautiful sunrise, you could see the mist over the river and we took the most amazing pictures that morning. We took our coffee cups down to the river and just sat enjoying the beauty and quietness one only gets in the morning. Thanks to the Larned house, we were able to take Lemons and make Lemonade, lol. My son, stayed in bed all of the day Saturday and Sunday morning. He was able to get some much needed rest and is now doing better. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful, quite, relaxing home, we really enjoyed it! Mr. Larned, Thank you for your kindness, we hope to be back soon!

Great, quiet, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a getaway for the weekend or the week. Fantastic views of the river with relaxing seating on a massive, elevated back porch. Wonderful to sit and watch the herds of whitetail does or expansive swarms of fireflies. Easy access to the river, and about a 5-6 hour float from the backyard down to the Gruene bridge. Thanks again Johney for having us to your home! Will be back again.

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in the perfect location!! It's right on the river and the lot is huge. Everything you could need is at the house, but if you do need something, stores are about 5-10 minutes away. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with deer everywhere so be careful driving through. We absolutely will be going back next year!!

Beautiful house, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was beautiful, with a large covered deck. There is a great sitting area by the river and if you cross the river there is a large flat rock in the water that you can set up chairs on. Make sure you spend some time floating on the river!
