About Terri Hannasch
I enjoy renting and making sure everyone has a good time on their vacation. I try to keep my prices reasonable as I am sensitive to the fact that while the cost of living keeps going up, our salaries have not. Ive been renting since 2010. I feel very fortunate to live on the river and to be able to rent my home in "the vacation capital of Texas". Renting has helped me not lose my home and cover the ridiculous property taxes. Since I started renting in 2010, it seems everyone, including outside investors, started doing the same. So people have a lot of homes and locations to chose from. I am appreciative when families and friends chose mine to spend their vacation and I try to make sure everything is perfect.
Terri Hannasch purchased this House in 1995
Why Terri Hannasch chose New Braunfels
I always wanted to live on the river in New Braunfels. I would drive the streets in New Braunfels exploring the ones that led to the water looking for older homes and 'fix-me-uppers"'. Back then the homes were mostly 'cabins' and this area was considered "country." We bought this house when it was a just a small cabin in 1995 and then we had the biggest flood event in New Braunfel's history in 1998. It was called a 500 yr flood. All the old cabins and old boat houses were either washed away or not worth rebuilding. Most of the homes you see today were rebuilt after the 98 flood. I love its location and few people realize this part of the Guadalupe river exists where it opens up wide for boating and fishing. It is only 7 miles from downtown, Gruene, River Road, and the Comal. Thank you for viewing and where ever you chose to stay, have a great time floating the rivers and enjoying New Braunfels!

I rented this house for a weekend with 10 of my girlfriends. It was perfect for our stay, with plenty of space and a nice outdoor area! Terry was great and very communicative! Would recommend!

Great Place for a Big Family
This house was great for our family gathering! Location was perfect too if you plan on floating the river or going to Schlitterbaun:)
Thank you, Paige!
Very nice house.
We visited this house on spring break 2019, there was more than enough room to accommodate our party. The kids had a blast fishing as did the adults. Overall very nice house will definitely rent again.
Thank you, Adrian!
This beautiful place was ideal for our family. We had a fabulous time and felt like we were in our own home, being fully equipped with everything possible. It's a great place to relax and enjoy. Terry certainly goes above and beyond to make her guests fell welcome. Would definitely return again and recommend this place to everyone!!
Dear Nancy, I just wanted to say thank you for your positive comments and to wish you and your family happy holidays!! I hope to see you again!
Great Family get-together at Riverbend Lake House.....
Everything was wonderful, Terri the owner was great, all of us enjoyed the house and the River/Lake. Everything was as shown on the website and we would certainly stay
there again. Thanks again Terri for your hospitality...….
Hi Gary! I apologize that my response is a "little" late. I figure its never too late to say Thank you! It's people like you that make opening my home for people to enjoy all worth while. Hope to see you again one day. Terri
We were very happy with our stay at the Riverbend Lake House. My husband and I were there with our grown children and granddaughters for the wedding of our youngest son. The property was beautiful and well kept in a wonderful setting. It was clean, well cared for and provided for all of our needs. Everything we needed for our stay, besides personal items and food, were provided by the owner, Terry. We had some of our extended family join us at the lake for the afternoon and there was plenty
of room for everyone. We were close enough to San Antonio and New Braunfels to enjoy the sites in those areas and far enough out to not feel caught in the tourist crowds. We would definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for a place to gather with their family or friends.
Dear Nancy, I apologize I am late responding to your positive comments. I did not want you to think I was unappreciative for both your positive review and for you choosing my home to spend your vacation. I agree that the location is perfect in terms of distance to everything but also one of the widest sections of the river and ideal for swimming and boating. Thank you for your positive comments!!!!
There is a public boat ramp underneath IH-35 where you can launch your boat or water craft. This part of the Guadalupe River is called Lake Dunlap where the water is deep and wide enough to enjoy boating recreation. From this rental's backyard, you will see boats and jet skies go by. You can bring your own boat and park it in the boat slip located in the back yard. This rental is located at one of the widest sections of the river and the water level stays the same year round. Perfect for swimming or just sitting back in an inflatable drinking your favorite beverage and soaking up the Texas sun. Lake Dunlap has record size bass and catfish. There is plenty of waterfront lighting for those who prefer to fish at night. There is an outdoor fire-pit, a gas grill with one end for charcoal. During the day, stay and swim at the house or drive into town to float the Comal or "upper" Guadalupe. Spend a day at Schlitterbahn, Sea World or Fiesta Texas. Visit historic Gruene, listen to live music, shop at the nearby outlet malls, eat out at one of the many restaurants, or stay home and enjoy the river and sunset from the privacy of your own backyard. The options are endless. People come from all over Texas every year to spend their summer vacation in New Braunfels, which is why New Braunfels is known as the "vacation capital of Texas."
