About the property

Cozy 2 /2 Resort Condo. Ideal location. Beautiful grounds. 5 minutes to Gruene.

This condo is ideally located in the heart of New Braunfels with easy access to the river, Schlitterbahn, and downtown. The unit is located on the top floor of Inverness resort - you won't have anyone making noise above you when you are ready to retire from a full day of fun in the sun. The unit is accessible by stairs or the elevator - relatives with weak knees will appreciate that! The unit itself is all on one floor. It feels like you are in a Texas hill country farmhouse when you enter. The unit is so comfortable and charming. The owner has displayed a collection of Texas hill country art for you to enjoy. The floor plan has an open kitchen, dining room, and living area making it easy to entertain.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you could possibly need to make a gourmet meal. It is even stocked with some staple paper goods, seasonings, and cleaning supplies to make it easier and more convenient for you to enjoy your time there. In a closet off of the kitchen is a large front loading stacked washer and dryer if you need it.

The dining area has a large table and 4 chairs plus 2 bar stools to seat 6 guests.

The living room has a leather fouton that folds out into a full size sleeper for 2 guests and another leather fouton chair that folds out into a twin sleeper. The flat screen TV is set up with cable and the stereo plays CDs, radio, and has Bluetooth capability.

Step on to the balcony to enjoy the local wildlife. The area is covered with large shade trees and is a perfect spot for bird watching in the morning with a cup of coffee. Relax on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine or a margarita to do some people watching.

The master bedroom has a new king sized pillow top mattress that is exceptionally comfortable. It also has its own flat screen TV. The private full bath inside the master bedroom has a shower.

The guest bedroom also has a new queen sized pillow top mattress. There is a bathroom across the hall with a combination shower/tub.

This wonderful condo is perfect for 2 couples or a family to enjoy the Comal River, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, downtown New Braunfels, Gruene, and the surrounding area.

Guests have private access to the Comal River. The last public tubing exit is about a half of a block away which makes walking home easy. The tubing shuttles park across the street so you have your pick of outfitters if you want to rent tubes. Tubing is literally in your back yard. You can walk across the street and put in at the Garden Street Bridge for a short float home if you bring your own tube.

Schlitterbahn is across the street with an entrance about a block away. You can come and go to the waterpark to rest, eat, and regroup without having to take or park your car.

Downtown is a short walk for exploring uniqiue shops, taverns, museums of the early German settlers, and restaurants. Stop by Nagelin's (the oldest bakery in Texas) or Henne's (the oldest hardware store in Texas).

Landa Park is a must for the entire family to visit. Enjoy the paddleboat lake, miniature train ride around the park, the spring fed wading pool, the giant 'Founder's Oak' dating back to the 1700's, picnic pavilions, Panther Creek hiking trail, and free summer concerts at the dance slab.

Gruene is a historic district on the national registry and a former ghost town. It is home to Gruene Hall, the oldest dancehall in Texas. Wander in to listen to live music nightly and see where legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Hal Ketchum, and Lyle Lovett got their start. Next door, have a delicious meal overlooking the Guadalupe River at the Gristmill.

If you feel adventurous, take the scenic ride up River Road to Canyon Lake. Spend the day shopping at the outlet malls in San Marcos. Explore Natural Bridge Caverns. Visit the San Antonio Missions and Riverwalk. Find out why Austin is the live music capitol of the world by going to 6th street and the surrounding district.

When you come to 'The River Inn', you are in the perfect place to experience it all!!

Perfect location, comfortable setting!

  • 5 of 5

This spot was perfect for our family of 5 and all the activities we had planned. We walked to float the river. We walked to Schlitterbaun. We drove in to Gruene for a concert. The condo was fully stocked and very comfortable, including the beds!! We would book this again, for sure.

Great condo close to Schlitterbahn and river.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was clean and comfortable. Location is perfect. Parking was covered but tight for a larger truck. My older daughter had a tournament cancel and decided to join us. All it took was a text to the owner and we were taken care of. The owner was also kind enough to notify us when our room was ready to check in. My kids loved the pool and deck to jump off of into the river. Great experience for us. This was our second time here. We will be back!

Really nice condo at a great price

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of four. There was plenty of space and it was clean and well appointed with everything we might need, including a full sized washer and dryer. We had a great weekend and loved our home away from home, though we opted to travel out of town to the Guadalupe to get way from the rather racaus weekend crowd the Comal seemed to be attracting. We would stay here again, but travel to a less crowded place to float.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was really good to stay at. It is mostly a college kid party condo on the weekend. We loved being right by the river and only a 5 min walk from the tube shoot. We would stay again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! We're a repeat customer at this condo and everything is always top notch. I bring all the extras for kitchen and laundry but never use them bc they are provided. Close to Sclitterbahn, walking distance to Naeglins Bakery, nice float down the Comal
