  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at the Hill Country Haven. The house itself is AMAZING, beautiful inside and out. My children love the "bunk bed hallway!" The outdoor deck offers breathtaking views and opportunities to see wildlife. We counted at least 10 deer on our last stay. I would HIGHLY recommend the Hill Countey Haven. Pure bliss!

Very spacious and comfortable with a breathtaking view! Loved the big showers!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. It is centrally located to several areas. You are close to the Guadalupe River to float, and 20 minutes from Gruene and downtown New Braunfels. 15 minutes from Canyon Lake to San Marcos. One hour from San Antonio. We love the peacefulness you have with the beautiful sunsets and the appearance of some wildlife. We would highly recommend this home for anyone who enjoys the beauty of Hill Country life!!

Hill Country Haven is a "HEAVENLY" home away from home. Not just a house... Dale and Vicky have designed and decorated an AMAZING place perfect for all ages. Large open concept to be enjoyed by all with privacy after a long day at the lake, water park, Gruene, shopping, site seeing, eating, floating the river, and so much more! The bunk beds are perfect for little ones to enjoy but large enough for adults as well. Plenty of bathrooms with large (seat included) showers!! The furnishings are 5 star and everything is super clean and cozy.

Nothing like being outside admiring the beautiful sunrise and sunset and seeing 7 deer!!!!!! Super bright stars at night and gorgeous scenery from the huge patio. This was a PERFECT place for our fun family vacation. Looking forward to returning!

Thank you for allowing us to check in one night early and sharing your home!

Georgeous house with great views

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this home is VERY spacious with a great floor plan. We had 8 people total and had ample amounts of room. The bunk hall is a great amenity if traveling with kids. The kitchen was fully stocked and ready to go. I fell in love with the back porch the moment I stepped out the door. I would give this home 10 stars if I could and recommend for anyone looking at this home to book immediately!

Why Dale & Vicky Thames chose New Braunfels

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.
