Well-furnished 3 Bed/2 Bath Home, sleeps up to 12
The Little Ponderosa River Retreat is not your typical vacation rental property. The Owners purchased this property in 2009 as a second home. After spending tons of money on fresh paint, high-end furniture, state of the art appliances, name brand faucets and fixtures, Fiestaware dishes, Kitchenaid pans and utensils, new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses and linens, matching bedding and curtains, and Native American rugs, blankets, and decorations, they opened their vacation home to family and friends. The Owners are now retired and open their vacation home to you!!
Owner/Manager purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner/Manager chose New Braunfels
Little Ponderosa is the perfect getaway for our family and friends. There is a deep fishing hole in front of our property where the trout wait for us to drop a line. The property is across the river from the famous River Road, a tree-lined drive perfect for motorcycles and bicycles. The house and large yard are nestled among large pecan trees providing shade from the Texas sun. You can rent tubes from the river outfitter down the street to float the river or bring your own tube and float in front of our house.

One of my favorite places
Property manager was amazing and available at all times. Location is prime. Tube rental right down the road. You can get shuttled up river and float to the house. Or put in at the house and float down to get picked up. Amazing property!!
Really great property! We will be back!
Bachelor party weekend
Ten of my friends and I had an absolutely fantastic time at this property. The house it very spacious and the outside areas are the best! We spent the majority of our time out on the huge deck and down by the water, Wich was a great spot to fish.
Can't wait to go back!
Perfect vacation getaway...
I don't leave reviews often unless something is bad. If something is good or what I would expect, I don't say anything. I felt compelled to review my stay here at the Little Ponderosa in mid June of 2019. To start, when you here clichés like a person prides themselves on customer service, or a business strives for 5-star service, etc., most of the time it is just that...cliché. But...in this case, it is very obvious very quickly, that these home owners take pride in what they have, and work diligently towards earning a 5-star rating. The house is wonderfully situated with plenty of room, plenty of amenities, and plenty of attention to cleanliness. The owner was ALWAYS reachable and ALWAYS responded to texts soon after inquiries were sent. He met us at the home for check-in and went over very detailed information to make our stay more enjoyable. It was obvious he was proud of the Little Ponderosa and it showed in how clean and tidy everything was, as well as his tour of the home to point out every conceivable issue that might come up, from where certain light switches were and what they did, to where the best place was to go fishing near by and what to use to catch them. Our stay was perfect, the location was perfect, and none of us wanted to leave. In the event I find myself looking to visit the Guadalupe again with a large group, I WILL be looking to the Little Ponderosa first. I just cant say enough good things about the location.
Because I feel compelled to say SOMETHING was not perfect, I will say that there was no blender in the kitchen. And I got the feeling that this was something that would be rectified before the next group showed up.
Great location, and thank you so much for sharing a little piece of Heaven on Earth with us!
The owners were wonderful to deal with and the home was VERY comfortable. Coffee on the porch overlooking the river was one of the highlights! We rented a raft and we’re able to get out about a block from the house. We had an amazing time and hope to come back soon!!!
We loved this place! Beautiful spot on the river with great fishing. Lots of space with comfy beds.
It was a great experience.
Little Ponderosa River Retreat is close to the Schlitterbaun water park in New Braunfels, the antique and specialty shops in Gruene and New Braunfels, and the large outlet shopping mall in San Marcos. Also in the area is the Whitewater amphitheater, an outdoor music venue which draws famous country and rock musicians and bands. Canyon Lake for boating and jet-skiing is a short drive from the property.
