We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the lake. The home was just right for our family to gather. The sunsets were beautiful and we did see 2 fox's plus many many deer. Coffee on the deck in the morning was peaceful and BBQ in the evening relaxing. Thanks so much for sharing your home.
We enjoyed our stay at the Riverfront House in Gruene! We were two separate families with kids and there was plenty of room. The kids stayed upstairs in the loft area (perfect for small kids or teens though maybe a little cramped for adults) or they crashed on the sofa bed in the living room. Lots of good options on the TV, which came in handy when it rained our last day there. Kept the kids busy while the adults packed and cleaned up. Just as an FYI, this house has a lot of stairs and the bathrooms are downstairs from the kitchen/living area, so this would not be a good choice for someone that has mobility issues. This was not a problem at all for us. In fact, the stairs kept us from being complete slugs all weekend. :P
Water access is perfect. There was a fairly large tree trunk floating just in front of the stair access and someone had laid two planks across it, which gave the kids something to jump off of and also served as a makeshift docking station for our tubes and floaties. The river is deep and slow in that area and is a lot like swimming in a lake. There are some mini-falls just above there that you can swim to easily. We enjoyed the little platform that sat above the water. It was a dry place to keep our music, drinks, towels, sunscreen, etc. Anyone that was dry could sit there and still be part of the river shenanigans.
The house is close to everything in town. It's only a mile or so from old Gruene and Gruene Hall. It's also not far from the interstate, so the location is pretty stellar overall.
The owner was very easy to work with and responded quickly, even when we asked at the last minute whether our dog could come, too. Very accommodating!
Thanks again! We will definitely come back!
