The Ponderosa River Place on River Road just outside New Braunfels is a rock and cedar two story cabin that sits on the banks of the crystal clear Guadalupe River . It is a fabulous get away for trout fishing, river tours, tubing, or just lounging!

The space

What makes this place unique is that it sits on almost an acre of land and the river in front of the house is known to many trout fishermen as one of the best fishing areas on the Guadalupe! Of course, this river is also a playground for anyone who wants to tube the white water and frolic in the sun. It is a little bit of heaven right here in the heart of Texas.

Guest access

The house sleeps ten and has two complete baths. The kitchen, living room, loft and decks are spacious and inviting. You are in the neighborhood of Gruene Hall for night life and antique shopping during the day. The drive to Gruene down River Road is unforgettable. I guess it is the closest thing to Colorado we have in Texas! Majestic!

Interaction with guests

You have your privacy for the most part, but Earl and I enjoy either greeting and meeting our guests or at least stopping by at some point during your stay to say hi and answer any questions you may have. We live relatively close so we are easily accessible by text if you need us for any reason.

Other things to note

We provide fresh, clean linens, towels and breakfast fixings for the group so you can have your breakfast at your convenience on your own time frame. We want you to enjoy your stay and return often to enjoy relaxing during your time away from home.

This is a beautiful property with amazing host. Everything was clean, easy accessible, and more than you could ever need. Don't have any hesitation on booking with Linda and Earl because you won't regret it!!

This was a perfect place for our group of 3 couples(6). It was clean and furnished as described with a few extra positives. The included breakfast was more than enough and more than expected! The tube rental place is just down the street and when you float down the river you get to this house before having to return the tubes. It was great to have the ability to stop and have a snack and relax before returning the tubes. It has a beautiful porch/deck overlooking the river that was great for early morning coffee and evening cocktails. It faces easy so the afternoon sun is not an issue at all! We'll rent this house again in the future!

This is the second time that we have stayed with Earl and Linda and their place feels like a home away from home. The house is in an excellent location and well-equipped to make your stay as comfortable as if you were at home. They are so friendly and accommodating, too! The house was perfect for a weekend out of the city (Houston). I would highly recommend the house for families and groups of friends. There are more than enough beds and places to hang out. The deck outside was a wonderful place to enjoy my coffee and breakfast in the morning.

Earl and I wanted to share our beautiful space with people who love animals and appreciate nature. The stars are beautiful in the big sky and the country life style is addicting. I am a retired middle school teacher and Earl recently retired from 35 years of owning a dental lab in San Antonio. We are dedicated to caring for our pet longhorns and giving thanks for all our blessings. Earl's hobbies include cooking, gardening and enjoying bird watching. I collect vintage linens and love to find old treasures of any kind at estate sales, open air markets or garage sales. Our favorite vacation destinations are beaches or fishing getaways for Earl. Isla Mujeres, Mexico is always beckoning...come back.
