Perfect spot on the river

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at River Retreat on the Chute. These homes have a beautiful view of the river. Also a fun spot before one of the dams, we laughed and had a good time just watching the people float by. This location has several choices to sit and enjoy the scenic view, the two level porch has a great view with peaceful sounds of the river, or there is a river side deck to enjoy and also a large rock out on the water to enjoy as well. Another great thing about this location, we can go up river a few miles and put in at several float houses, depending on how long you want to float; then can float right back to the house. We will definitely be renting one of these houses again.

The house is literally right on the river chute!! Just an awesome over all location.

  • 4 of 5

We spent my 40th bday on the river this year(2016). We are frequent visitors to the river , but the past 3 years have been brutal to camp with 2015 being the very worst rain we have ever experienced!! This year we wanted to try renting a house to stay Memorial weekend and so we found this spot RIGHT ON THE RIVER with private river access, a very nice dock/sitting area over the water, and the most perfect patch of rocks about 15' off the river bank that we swam out to and set up chairs and a table IN THE RIVER!!! It was perfect for us and we will be back for sure!!!

Map

If you are a lover of antiques, the home is less than 5 minutes from the towns of New Braunfels and Gruene, which provide antique shops as well as many unique shops where artisans sell their wares. The home is also close to great bar-b-que as well as several outlet malls. If you get tired of playing in the river, "Schlitterbahn", a wonderful water park is located in New Braunfels. Not only does Gruene have lots of shopping and good food, it is also home of the famed "Gruene Hall, which has served as a springboard for many Texas musicians. A great place for dancing or just enjoying the music. You might even enjoy learning the Texas Two-Step!

Boating, water-skiing and sailing can be found at Canyon Lake. The drive up River Road to the lake is notably one of the most scenic areas in Texas. Watch for deer and other wildlife along the way!

You will be a short 35-mile drive from San Antonio where you will find Six Flags, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the famed San Antonio Riverwalk as well as fantastic Mexican food. The Alamo, along with several other missions is located there and there are numerous tour buses that take you to experience the sights and sounds of San Antonio.

The state capitol of Texas is located 45 minutes away in Austin, which has great nightlife featuring many of Texas' finest musicians. You never know what great and noted name will appear at some out of the way bar!

For you golfers, there are courses located in New Baunfels as well as San Antonio. Austin is home of some of the finest courses America has to offer.

This location is the BEST on the river. You can float in the river or raft it, find a nice place to sit on the limestone outcropping to watch others play, or just enjoy the the privacy of your own deck as you relax. During the fall, there are many festivals in the area, including "Oktoberfest" and "Wurstfest".

***** We rent only to persons over 25. Visa or Mastercard required. A parent must accompany students. Sorry, no exceptions.
