We booked for a group of 15 ladies and we were more than pleased with the beautiful home. There was ample room to accommodate all of us with room to spare. The home is located in a beautiful setting, very peaceful and relaxing environment. Surrounded by gorgeous scenery and close to the lake which you can see from the balcony of the home. Close to Guadalupe but it was closed so we drive in and floated the Comal, definitely a great stay

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 20 and this place was perfect. Plenty of sleeping space and room for everyone. The views were gorgeous and we saw lots of deer just walking around early in the morning. You are only 5 minutes from some tubing places but unfortunately for us the Guadalupe was unfloatable due to flooding so we drove 30 minutes into New Braunfels and floated with Texas Tubes. We had a great time and can't wait until next summer to book again. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you, Your thoughts are much appreciated. I am glad that you were able to enjoy the tubing on the river. Canyon Lake is noted for their tubing. I am glad that your group had a good time. I look forward to having you stay with us next year Bernardine inn keeper.
