Come on down and enjoy our laid-back, family owned river lodge in New Braunfels along the beautiful banks of the Guadalupe River. The Lodge is a place to let your hair down, relax, grab a cold beer and enjoy …Moreexciting activities on the river, from kayaking to tubing and rafting. Play a game of volleyball, dive into the sparkling swimming pool, or play video games on the big screen in our clubhouse. If none of that strikes your fancy, head to historic Gruene for some local shopping, enjoy our Texas flavors or people watch with a glass of Texas wine under the trees. Don't forget to check out Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas. Later in the afternoon, back at The Lodge, relax in a hammock under the canopy of pecan and black oak trees. As night falls, the fireflies let you know that it is time for a campfire, s'mores and maybe a ghost story. Our accommodations and location are perfect for Snowbirds or Winter Texans as known by the locals. Many of our rooms have full kitchens and queen-size pillow-top beds.

We stayed here last week. Great price and good location..owner making updates. The place is as you see but lots of wildlife..great pool and will take you to 3 hour float for $10! Nice for small or large groups too
The location of the property is right off the highway and on the river. The grounds are nicely kept.
You can rent tubes right on the property and they have a shuttle.
If you want to just hang out by the river there is lots...More
We have been going here for years (20 plus). We have seen several owners and their efforts to improve the rooms. This past stay (May 2018) the rooms were great! If you are familiar with the property, you can really see the collective improvements over...More
