GUADALUPE RIVER LODGE, COTTAGE, FIREPIT, NEW CONFERENCE ROOM, CANOES AND FISHING

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday home in New Braunfels

Lodge, 9 Bedrooms , 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 12-30)Cottage/1 bath

Welcome to Guadalupe River Lodge, a spectacular lodge consisting of 8 bedrooms in the large house plus separate one bedroom cottage with kitchen and bath. Also included are an upper and lower decks with jet ski ramp and space for two boats. We are not responsible for any damages to boats or jet skis should you decide to bring them. Anything that happens in the water is not the owner's responsibility.

This lodge caters to people who enjoy being outside on a beautiful winding river and who want to be able to sleep a large number of family members. Two of the bedrooms have french doors that open out to a patio that overlooks the winding Guadalupe River. When you use the canoes, you can travel up and down the river viewing homes and farms on both sides. The river is quiet with few if any motorized boats.

This home is located on MeadowLake, the 4th lake in a chain of 4 lakes on the Guadalupe River. Lake Dunlap, Lake McQueeney, and Lake Placid are just upstream. Being a little farther away from the Canyon Dam and Canyon Lake allows you to be away from the hustle and bustle of the large crowds. Go home to a nice relaxing place where Mother Ducks, baby ducks and geese float calmly beside your dock. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak, jet skis, or fishing gear and enjoy the river. Relax or get together on the huge concrete patio overlooking the widest part of the Guadalupe River. Or fish from the lower wooden deck just inches from the water.

You will stay in a 8 bedroom, fully furnished home with everything you need to relax in comfort, surrounded by Nature's Beauty and beautiful art work, close to everything needed to meet your vacation rental needs. I do have extra accomidations available for larger parties and wedding such as a private cottage rented separately.

We are located close to great tubing on the Comal River and the Guadalupe River, and the Schlitterbahn, the Largest and Best Waterpark in the United States. And only a short drive to Gruene(pronounced 'Green') Hall, the oldest operating Dance Hall in Texas, where John Travolta danced in his beautiful white angel wings in the movie 'Michael'. If shopping interests you, you can visit one of the largest outlet malls in nearby San Marcos. San Antonio is less than an hour away, if you are interested in seeing the Alamo or enjoying some time on the scenic downtown San Antonio Riverwalk. Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Seaworld are only a 40 minute drive away. The world famous McNay Museum and several other museums in San Antonio are worth the trip.

Our home includes 8 bedrooms:

1) Master bedroom with king-sized bed and queen size bed

2) vintage twin bed with desk and dresser

3) twin trundle bed(sleeps two people in this room)

4) twin bed and queen bed

5) room with triple futon(can sleep up to 8 people in this room)

(best for children)

6) room with library wall and queen-sized bed

7) room with 2 futons that can sleep four

8) room with double bed plus bunkbeds

These homes feature hardwood and tiled floors throughout. The master bedroom, library room, and private cottage all have large decks which overlook the river. There is a large concrete

patio for parties with a lower deck, jet ski ramp, boat dock, and a wooden pier for fishing inches from the water. The owner lived in Hawaii prior to moving to Texas, and she says this is the closest property she could find that reminded her of Hawaii. The large concrete patio overlooks the widest part of the Guadalupe River. There is a Bar-B-Que pit available for grilling and also a new firepit. This property is also great for Winter Texans, Family Reunions, Baby Showers, Girlfriend Getaways, Business Parties, and Weddings.

No smoking inside either house or illegal drugs , otherwise entire deposit will be forfeited. No loud parties to disturb the neighbors. It is a quiet neighborhood and we like to keep it this way. Police will be called if groups get out of control. We like to respect the privacy of our neighbors.

This is a great location to dock your boat, The perfect place for your vacation rental.

EXPERIENCED TRAVELERS THROUGHOUT THE SOUTHWEST AND NORTHWEST.

  • 5 out of 5
We've returned home after our two months of travels and I'm reflecting on places we've enjoyed and
especially those we'd like to revisit. It was a pleasure to find the Guadalupe River Lodge on a quiet,
natural part of a major Texas River that was not crowded. Canoeing, paddle boating, fishing and being in
lovely quiet was refreshing. We've traveled enough to want to avoid the sterile hotel atmosphere and
found this lodge more like being at home but with our own river to experience in a number of ways. The
beds, furniture were comfortable, and the rooms clean, cozy with two T.V.'s - one for a large number of
people. A kitchen had everything for cooking and a really great Mexican Restaurant nearby. Also, the old town of Gruene about 15 miles away with lots of interesting art, food, misc."country" shops and the old, original dance hall that was in the movie Michael (John Travolta). Not "touristy". Great river float
trips here over a faster flowing part of the river. A water slide park is nearby to Gruene especially for
kids. Lots of people staying in New Braunfels so we much preferred the Guadalupe River Lodge.

I REALLY ENJOYED SOME QUIET TIME BY THE RIVER WITH MY DOG AND A FRIEND!

  • 5 out of 5
The view and the sunset were spectacular. We enjoyed having a quiet meal on the huge deck by the river, and the dog enjoyed wandering around without a leash. It was too early to play in the river, but we look forward to returning this summer, so we can fully enjoy all that this lovely place has to offer. The leather couches downstairs were quite comfortable for conversations or private reading time. Vanessa was very friendly and made us feel welcomed.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and a group of friends stayed at the Guadalupe River Lodge in mid November 2013. We enjoyed the spacious grounds, and the beautiful views, from balconies, and the master bedroom...and yes, the honeymoon cottage...with its French doors that opened up to a balcony, where we sat and enjoyed bloody Mary's, minosa's and wine while we enjoyed the spectacular views both at sunrise and sunset...

We were pleased to discover that we were able to enjoy our favorite football games over the weekend and with numerous TV's we could enjoy viewing the shows we each liked. The grounds were spacious, and the house was roomy, so we could have private conversations, as well as meals with friends, and guests who joined us.The kitchen enabled us to prepare meals, and the close proximity to city's and towns enabled us to eat out at local restaurants, and to shop.

We are already making plans to stay at the lodge in the spring...

For those who wish to enjoy a relaxing get-away from it all experience, at any time of the year, I recommend the Guadalupe River Lodge.

Sincerely,

A. Isenberg

PRO'S & CON'S

Pro's & Con's
  • 2 out of 5
Pro's:
The neighborhood was very quiet and the residents were friendly. The back yard is beautiful with a deck that is spacious with plenty of seating. The canoes were a nice touch and we enjoyed them. The house is big and has plenty of beds and bedrooms. The Kitchen up stairs did have a fridge, full oven, plenty of spoons, a blender, and two coffee makers. There are three different kitchen tables with seating for about 15 people. Bonus the kitchen down stairs also had a fridge and kitchen table. Offers a Beautiful view of the Guadalupe River

Con’s:
*The house was dirty; I spent the first two hours of my vacation cleaning the kitchen.
*The lights in the kitchen were burnt out and we had to replace them.
*The kitchen is not fully stocked. (no forks)
*The floors were filthy (our feet were black) had to wear shoes.
*The house smells of mold and the bathrooms were dirty.
*The house had flying roaches, spiders, and mosquitos.

With two very easy fixes this house would be a perfect get away.

Owner's Response: This vacation renter left a very nice note thanking me for a great time and that overall they had a great vacation. Any missing forks or needed measuring cups have been replaced. For any insects that flew into the house, I apologize. The landscaping is mostly granite gravel which creates dust. The cleaning crew put in extra time cleaning the kitchen, bathrooms, and floors. We sincerely apologize for any discomfort or inconvenience to our precious guests and we appreciate your feedback. We strive to create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation for all of our guests and will continue to do so in the future...Kind regards, Management

FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 out of 5
21 people stayed 3 nights for a family reunion. Was just right for our family. Plenty of beds. The house seems disjointed/strangely arranged at first but we settled in & it was great. The deck was perfectt for the adults to gather after putting the children to bed. Seguin has a great wave pool and Amusement park much smaller but much cheaper than Schlitterbahn. Just what we needed and didn't have to stand in the long lines. Ate twice at Casa Sol just down the road it was that good. A recommendation from the home owner. Will stay again.
