About Sarah Becker

Our family lives locally in New Braunfels and we couldn't ask for a more beautiful place to live. We love outdoor activities like fishing, kayaking, hiking and camping so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase this piece of property.

What makes this house unique

This truly is one of the best spots on the river and the house is perfect for a river getaway with friends or family. The lodge is situated on a prime spot of the river for all of the action in the summer but it is also secluded by the private island in the stream right in front of the house. The fishing is great, it is the perfect spot to float down in a tube or a kayak, or you can sit on the covered breezeway and listen to the water flow over the rocks of the chute that is right upstream!

Large House On The Guadalupe River Sleeps 10 And Your Pets Are Welcome!
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Great house for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a large group. Perfect for getting out of the river by the shoot. Plenty of places to sleep. Beds were comfortable but I do recommend bringing your own pillow. The outside sitting area is great with a nice big grill (bring extra charcoal). The outside aesthetics could use a little TLC (cobwebs and dirt dobber homes) but overall great. Beware of the sharp corners on the living room tables. I grazed my thigh next to the corner and it slit my skin open. I would recommend they put corner protectors on the tables. Fire pit was also a great way to end our days.

A very nice place, just as represented in pics and comments.

  • 5 of 5

We only had a short two night stay for 4, so splurged an this space. Everything was top notch, from comfortable furnishings, nicely appointed rooms and full stocked quality kitchen wares, etc. and a surprise air hockey table along with the pool table.

When booking I was initially surprised that the $200 cleaning and nearly $100 finders management fees were not included in the nightly rate (my first VRBO), so it ran up our total cost, but I was booking only 3weeks before arrival and was tired of shopping for a deal. On arrival, the spaces were immaculate and all especially nice. This large house would well accommodate a large group of 11, including family groups with kids. For the 4 of us we had plenty of choices of how to use all the space.

The river location is also great just as described, with the private island screening from main river and lovely splashing rapids just upstream. As bonus, we saw deer, geese, and a large owl.

A rowdy truck and ATV showed up across the river one night, but left before the 1100pm curfew. I like the standards set by the rental company rules.
