About Cathy Rivers

We moved to New Braunfels in 1977, floated the river a few times and decided we wanted to be "River Outfitters". We started Rockin R River Rides in 1979 with 50 toobs and it grew to be the biggest outfitter in New Braunfels. We enjoy the river,travel,and visit friends all over the US and beyond. After staying in many homes we know what makes us feel comfortable and try to give that same comfortable feeling to our guest.


Cathy Rivers purchased this house in 2005

Why Cathy Rivers chose Hill Country

You can't find a better place to live and raise a family than New Braunfels. We took this house that had small paneled rooms and opened it up to a more open floor plan with a better flow. We tried to create a homey and relaxed atmosphere that people could come to and just chill for their vacation. This house is close to everything you could want to do in New Braunfels and 10-15 minutes from the San Marcos outlet Mall.

What makes this house unique

We bought this property because of it's close location to all the action in New Braunfels and Gruene. We furnished this house for comfort and relaxation with Lazy Days in mind! Come enjoy and relax!

great stay in Gruene

  • 5 of 5

the house was very clean, kitchen stocked with necessary items, more than enough room to accomodate the 7 of us. No ability to access netflix or movies. Coffee piot took 1/2 hr to might need to replace it. We would definately stay here again...great location close to river, new braunfels and canyon lake

A great house for all seasons

  • 4 of 5

We missed the warm-weather river rafting, but enjoyed our fall visit during the week of Thanksgiving. Outdoors, we sat and talked at the picnic table, played Frisbee, grilled steaks and hamburgers, and loved watching the deer come up in the yard. Inside we played shuffle board and other games. Just down the road we visited Gruene, Texas. We had a good time shopping (Cotton Eyed Joes & Gruene General store - good ice cream), listening to music and watching some Texas Two-steppers dancing at Grune Hall. The only negative for my 7-year my nephew occurred when his uncle threw the Frisbee onto the roof. Relationships were restored after the wind blew the Frisbee down to the ground. Whew!

Great place with amazing value for a weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying here with my friends. The pictures don't really do this house justice. Everything is very updated and we'll maintained, there is TONS of space, a great yard, and it's only a few minutes from the river. 10/10 would rent again.

Great place for our last minute trip

  • 4 of 5

We found the house to be clean and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. We were close enough to the river which was a blessing after being on it for 5 hours no one wanted a long ride home after all that fun. Everything was provided fully stocked kitchen with anything you needed to prepare a meal down to the shuffle board in the extra living space. The televisions were good size and clear and the wifi was fast and reliable. Overall this was a great trip and a lot had to do with the accommodations of this house which allowed us to relax and enjoy each others company without any worry for anything else.

We had a wonderful time here! The house was great and included everything we needed. Additionally, the large bonus room was a plus for activities and movies. The location was perfect - walking distance to Rockin' R and Gruene Hall / The Gristmill. We had 8 people total and the house was perfect! Thanks Cathy!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband's siblings and spouses (6 total, all in our 30's) and we loved it! More than enough room in the house and the backyard was awesome! The kitchen has everything you could need to cook a gourmet meal. The location is great - around the corner from Gruene. We brought lawn games and food to cook and only left the house to float the river. The location is a quiet neighborhood and at night we watched the deer walk through the backyard. We are already planning our trip for next summer!
