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 weddings. Our secret garden is enclosed with space and seating for large groups. There is a separate private cottage should you need a small private space.
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. There is a intertube shuttle that will pick you team up at the property, supply you with the intertube, and after you float the river, they will bring you back home.
