Why Dale & Vicky Thames chose Hill Country

We have been traveling to New Braunfels for many years and raised our children floating the Guadalupe, playing at Schlitterhahn Water Park, boating and skiing on Canyon Lake, listening to live music at Gruene Hall and enjoying everything the amazing Texas Hill Country has to offer. We built Hill Country Haven for our family's vacation home, where we plan to make many family memories and raise our grandchildren with the same Texas Hill Country traditions. We want to share Hill Country Haven with other families, friends, etc. and hope that they will enjoy and experience the same joy. Maybe even start their own annual memories and traditions of their time in the Texas Hill Country at Hill Country Haven.

Incredible home with breath taking view! Couldn't have asked for more in a stay!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this home justice, the owners were awesome during our rental experience! Highly recommend this home to anyone seeking out an awesome time in the Hill Country! Our group was able to float the river which was a quick 5 minute drive to multiple drop off locations and it made for an amazing time!

The pefect family or couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely incredible. There is plenty of space for multiple families both inside the house and in the back area. The back porch as an amazing view of the surrounding valley, and the grill is impressive. There was a review from earlier complaining about the grill. Well, not anymore. That thing is a beast. The lawn was perfectly manicured. The seamless transition of music from inside to outside, coupled with the outdoor television, leaves you with non-stop entertainment. The house is also a 5 min drive, or a 20 min walk to river access and tubing. It is also super quiet at all times. There is no surrounding noise or loud traffic constantly disrupting your peace and quiet. This is truly a haven for anyone looking for a Hill Country escape, no matter the season.

Unbelievable House

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect house for a weekend getaway! Of course, we would've loved to stay longer! It's easy to get to Gruene, the Guadalupe River, Canyon Lake and New Braunfels! The house has every imaginable amenity - and the gas grill makes it super nice if you want to be outside! We will definitely be going back!

Beautiful house with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hill Country Haven with 3 couples and 3 kids. It was the perfect setup. The kids loved the hallway bunk beds. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio and enjoying the views. Great house, close to the river, lake and Gruene. We will definitely keep this house on our list next time we're in the area!
