Great little retreat with a nice waterfront on the Guadalupe River

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4-day vacation here. The house was clean and nicely accommodated my family, including my father, wife and me, and our 3 kids. There are two rooms with respective bathrooms and shower, and a living room with additional sofa beds which were fine for the kids. There is a lovely fireplace (which we did not use but looks lovely for winter) and a simple yet comfortable kitchen. The kitchen inventory could do with a couple additions (a few more pots and pans, a cooking tray, maybe a little more cutlery)--we had to mix and match a little to accommodate all 6 of us, but it was still sufficient. Plenty of linens, bathroom essentials. Very clean bedding/sheets and the AC works perfectly, which we greatly appreciated. The back yard was well cared for and we had a great time fishing, tubing and just enjoying the outdoors. On the opposite bank is Lazy L 'n L campground which can get a little louder over the weekends but not enough to be a nuisance. Above all, I especially liked the owners/caretakers of the property, as they were very accommodating to us and very hospitable. I would definitely recommend the place and we'll certainly keep in mind for future visits.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a family or some grown ups looking for a fun place. River access is a plus. After driving around town and seeing all it has to offer this place is a great one to pick.

Note to owners, the kitchen could use an inventory check.

The Ponderosa House

  • 4 of 5

We have a great time and enjoyed the house, greet location between 4th and 3rd crossing. Riverfront with deep water. House is nice and air conditioning was great. The tv in the living didn't work but we weren't inside anyway. I definitely recommend this house.

Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Guadalupe River property. Aside from having the basic necessities (WiFi, cooking accommodations including grill, showers, and comfy beds), the house had a wonderful swimming spot right on the property. I kept in communication with the owners up until our stay to gather updates on the river conditions since they had been closed for several weeks. The owners were willing to work with me on an optional refund policy since the river was closed for tubing at the time we made the purchase.

Speaking of tubing, the house is less than a mile away from a tube rental business that offers tubes and shuttle services that make for a relaxing day floating down the river.

Also, the lightning bugs near the river at night and a brisk morning swim made unique additions to our stay.

Thanks to the owners for a great getaway.
