Great Excluded Quaint Quiet Backwater Upstream
The home is modest and quaint (older small home with screen porch). Location is Great. Not a place for partying or drinking but definitely a good place for small group or couple and maybe a couple of kids max who are not expecting the Ritz Carlton (more like a really nice large cabin that's maintained to a minimal but very well a/c'd and fairly clean). It met my expectations except I'd brought my 70'sh parents which couldnt get to the river without a lot of effort. Property is Waterfront but its High Above the river with steep incline (sprinklered watered St. Augustine covered slope with no trail or steps). You will get a good workout and strengthen you leg muscles to go back and forth to river. Location is Great for a quiet peaceful relaxing getaway. Full time neighbors across the Street always watching so don't rent if your planning on party. As for river tripping it's backwater on our trip and full of natural debris (but very cold and refreshing). The location is high upriver from all the major traffic and not to far from canyon lake dam. We had a break in weather and it was not too hot. Air temp is much different down by the water which is ice cold and not too deep maybe 5 feet was moving very slow luckily had a raft and paddle which allowed us to paddle down and up stream as it would be frustrating on just tubes. There is an old waterwheel and small dam just down river on private property that has diverted the water so that you must navigate by foot to get back to floating (not for the weak or old as I'd imagine a lot of "boo-boos" and broken ankles happen there) Going over the small dam is not an option as you'll get stuck in the backwash. Its challenge to get around that spot and slow before 1st bridge. Wildlife is abundant (deer, fox, squirrel, and owl). No TV in bedroom and Shower Head in Master Bath was broken and someone had actually used a Band aid to makeshift the shower head (had to hand hold the shower to take. Shower). Other common bathroom has traditional tub and shower and worked fine. Small gas grill was useful for grilling. They have a corn hole game (beware if you leave it your cornhole bags out as deer will take your corn bags as they are actually filled with corn). Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the stay and thumbs up! If I could afford to buy the property I would live there (with improvements in mind). Location and value. It's a quiet place and hope it stays that way so we can come back another day soon.
My 12yo said it was his favorite vacation ever and he’s been to Grand Cayman, Disney, Destin, Lake Michigan, etc.
The kitchen was stocked with soap, towels, utensils, everything needed, including coffee filters.
There is a first aid kit, bug spray, laundry detergent, trash bags.
Bathrooms had plenty of toilet paper and towels.
There’s one fishing pole without a hook if you want to fish.
We bought tubes from Costco and often played off the dock or floated down around the horseshoe. You can also rent tubes from nearby tubing places. Bring your own beach towels!
I loved reading and drinking coffee on the screened in porch in the mornings. There was a lot of wildlife spotted, including deer, fox, hawk, lizards, and hummingbird.
We will definitely stay here again next time we visit family!
Super Great Place!
We have never done a home rental for vacation before.
WE ARE SOLD!
This is a great house with an amazing view. It is comfy, homey and it was perfect for our family vacation!!
The property (home and grounds) are taken care of and in great shape.
We went to the river every evening (right down the back yard), saw deer and foxes every day and evening. One night we even saw an owl.
We were secluded in the deep parts of nature but close enough to get to the store and restaurants within minutes.
I cannot say enough about how much we LOVED staying here and are hoping to come back. We have already told several friends and they want to stay here as well.
We loved staying at this hidden jewel on the Guadalupe. The home is so comfortable and in an ideal location on the river. Very quiet and peaceful in a lovely neighborhood. I hope to return soon.
Beautiful and peaceful on the Guadeloupe River
very comfortable and serene home on the River!!
Absolutely loved it!!!
This house was perfect! The owner even left towels, toilet paper, paper towels etc. the house is nice and cozy. The river is actually very pretty and calm and the floating dock just made it even better. We will definitely be coming back!
