  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this well appointed rental home! It was very clean, easy to get to, surrounded by beautiful trees and deer, and just very comfortable for our party of 14!! Kids had a blast roaming the property searching for treasures and playing foosball while indoors! Great property for adults and kids!!!

Perfect House for Large Group!!

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of 12 women (ages 30 -70) that travel to Gruene every July for shopping, eating and we also spend 4 hrs floating the river. We have been doing this for 12 years and this was our first stay at the River Road Retreat. It was perfect. The location is great because we were 5 minutes from shopping, and eating, in Gruene.

The kitchen was fully furnished for the few times we cooked. We really enjoyed the outdoor patio surrounded by towering trees. And it was really exciting to have our coffee and watch the numerous deer grazing.

We had plenty of comfortable beds and with three bathrooms we all managed to easily share. We plan on this being our new yearly rental!

LOVE THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

For a second time, we rented this house for our annual family vacation, and, once again, it was absolutely perfect for us. After spending our days at Landa Park, Canyon Lake, and on the Guadalupe, it was so nice to get back and relax in such a spacious, comfortable house and a fantastic yard. The kids had lots of room to ride bikes and play soccer, basketball, and volleyball, while we relaxed under the trees and around the fire pit. The house is very well-stocked from the kitchen to the bathrooms and the washer and dryer came in very handy. We've rented many different properties over the years for our annual trips, but this is by far my favorite place ever. It truly lives up to its billing.

*TVBRUML*

  • 4 of 5

Secluded older home in a quiet surrounding. Plenty of room for all. 3 adult bedrooms with comfy beds & a great room just for the kids with a separate bath. Volleyball, Basketball, horseshoes, frisbies, ladder ball, puzzles & books. Firepit ( when the burn bans is lifted) 2 propane grills & 1 smoker. Full kitchen with all utensils. Laundry rooms in case you just have to!! Quiet living room with cable tv & DVD player. Keep the deer watered and they come in every evening. Perfect for floating & playing in the water, Plenty of parking.

Property entrance has a sharp turn so buses & 5th wheel trailers might be tough getting thru.

I will be back!!!
