About Regina Symons

Ron and I have been married for many years. We have 4 children and 6 grandchildren! Lived in Texas all of our life! We founded a Nation-wide cheer company many years ago.

Regina Symons purchased this house in 2014

Why Regina Symons chose Hill Country

We were looking for a vacation house for our family and drove through the little town of Gruene Texas. We could not believe they had so many people walking in one little town! We figured this has to be the place for our family to have fun! We decided to build the Lazy S from scratch right on Gruene Rd and within walking distance of Gruene Hall. After a year in a half we are so excited to have it ready to use! We are excited to be able to share it as well. Its great for famlies even comes with fenced yard and play house!

What makes this house unique

The Lazy S sits right on the river with a private stair way leading to the river and park below. The house has a huge deck with two fire places. One fireplace for sitting out on the deck during cool nights. We hope you love this place as much as our family!

Fabulous Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. We loved being within walking distance to so many great restaurants, fun shopping, and the famous Gruene Hall. Our bridge group goes on a destination trip a year to play bridge and we all agreed this was our favorite. We loved everything about this place. The property manager was so helpful. Thank you for sharing such a great getaway place!

Amazing home 👍

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families in our party and were blown away with the property. Beautifully decorated and immediately felt like home . Bob was wonderful leading the tour of the home and sharing information regarding our stay . We enjoyed the large deck to relax and listen to music . Deer were wandering at the creek and it was very peaceful to watch . The Lazy S is a beautiful property and we were very pleased with every detail from the beginning to the end . Can't wait to return .

Thank you again Regina !

Great house with river access and walking distance to Gruene! A great family escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Lazy S and had a fantastic and relaxing time. New construction and wonderfully appointed. The house has an incredible back deck for lounging and relaxing with a cool 2-story play house for younger kids, which our children enjoyed immensely. Great views of the river and surrounding area.

Direct river access, although there are about 100 steps to get down. There is a lockable gate, so you don't have to worry about kids escaping. Pro tip - go down to the right just a little from the bottom of the stairs and there is a great area to set up a chairs/tubes and lounge right in the river. Great place to relax, watch the tubers go by, and enjoy the cool water.

Extremely convenient to Gruene - less than 5 minutes walk, and lots of good restaurants nearby. The pizza at Inferno's is great. For people looking for a coffee fix , Kora Kora coffee is an easy walk although there is a coffee maker at the house. Schlitterbahn is just a few minutes drive away. It's also extremely convenient to the highway so if you're looking to go into San Antonio or Austin, the drive is easy.

The house was in immaculate condition and the only issue we encountered (a loose drain valve under the kitchen sink) was repaired within an hour. The Lazy S is a great place for family to get together and enjoy the best Gruene has to offer. Highly recommended and you won't leave disappointed.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your children enjoyed the playhouse!!! It was built for my grand kids and all visitors with children! The backyard was also designed for families not to have to worry about having children outside to close to the water. We wanted a place for adults to enjoy as well as families with children! Thank you so much for this review! You are right about steps to the water. They are at least 90 to 100 steps down to the water front so you for sure don't want to forget something! smile We are now taking 2017 reservations! COME ON DOWN TO THE LAZY S!!!

This place is AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I took a girls trip to Gruene and stayed at the Lazy S. We absolutely loved it! This house is beautiful and the location is fantastic. You can definitely walk anywhere in downtown Gruene in less than 5 minutes. The river can be a bit tricky to get to, but it is accessible and the view is incredible. We will definitely be going back in the future! I HIGHLY recommend this place!

A GREAT getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lazy S for a family and friends getaway and a 30th birthday. We were very happy with how nice and spacious the house was. Bob the property manager was very welcoming and was a joy to deal with the entire time. We had a small issue with the air conditioner and Bob immediately had someone out to work on it. We were nothing but happy with our stay and will definitely look at this house for renting again. The back porch is amazing!! The owner was also very nice and a pleasure to work with. Thanks Lazy S!

Beautiful, Amazing Home In A Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

The Lazy "S" Ranch is a must addition to your bucket list!! As they say, location, location, location,,,, but that is just the tip of the iceberg with this high end family fun rental home. We have enjoyed everything about this beautifully furnished home from the large TV's to the open designed kitchen and living areas. The furniture is very comfortable and the beds were like sleeping on clouds.

The deck is huge and fenced so it is safe for both big and little people. As you walk out on the deck the river below comes into view - WOW!! And the sound from the river makes you want to sleep outside. Oh, and on the deck is an outdoor fireplace for those cool nights. And one thing that just does not change,,, the sun sets every evening right over this beautiful deck, then the city of New Braunfels fills the living area as you look out the sliders.

Then the tip of the iceberg 'location' just makes it the most wonderful place to spend your funfilled weekends at, or better yet, week nights as the Gruene crowds are much better during the week. We have walked to Gruene Hall, Omas Garden and the Tavern in the Gruene to enjoy the music most every night plus, you can drive less than 45 minutes and be in Luckenback, Fredericksburg, Austin, or on the San Antonio Riverwalk plus,,, you can eat at more than 30 great Texas Barbeque joints within that 45 minute radius.

And to top it all off, the owners and property manager are all a dream to work with. From our original conversation to moving in and adding an extension to our stay it has all been a real pleasuer. The Lazy "S" Ranch was just built in 2015 and will fill your every need for a wonderful vacation. Do it, just DO IT!!
