River Run Lodge on Guadalupe

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

The River Run Lodge on Guadalupe is one of the best river cabins in the Texas Hill Country! Planning a larger get-together for that family reunion, gathering of friends, or company retreat? Look no further! The River Run Lodge offers plenty of space for everyone to sleep and socialize in luxury. You'll enjoy not only the wide-open and natural setting on the five acres of grounds, but the convenience of shopping, restaurants, and events available in nearby downtown Kerrville, as well.

There's no better place to have a perfect weekend getaway in the Texas Hill Country than the River Run Lodge! The rural location, in tandem with its closeness to Kerrville, makes it one of the best weekend getaways in Texas, no matter what you have planned. This huge riverside rental houses up to 13, and if it's a family getaway you're planning, it's also kid-friendly. The property shares access to the Guadalupe River with two other cabins and several RV's, but on this spacious lot, neighborly congeniality is assured!

The River Run Lodge is a tree-lined riverfront property, so you'll have your own piece of the Guadalupe to use as you please! Fish or swim from the shore, or use the natural tube shoot (located by the nearby island) for a peaceful float down the river. Just want to kick back? No problem! There's a shaded deck, picnic table, and charcoal grill-all with patio furniture provided. The cabin is pet-friendly, too; for a minimal fee, you can bring your four-legged friends along. Let them romp, or take them along on a sightseeing hike. Animal lovers will love spotting the wildlife that uses this section of the river.

Inside, three bedrooms - a master with two queen-sized beds, another with a full and two twin beds, and a third with a full and one twin bed-and one double futon in the lower living area - provide accommodation for up to 13. There are two bathrooms, both with a tub and shower. Stretch out in the spacious living area, dining room, and bar. All bed and bath linens are included, and there's a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there's a dining table that seats up to eight-with room for four more at the gaming table. The lodge has both heat and air conditioning, WIFI, cable TV with a DVD player and good cell coverage take care of your tech needs. Give us a call; this is one of the best cabin Rentals in the Kerrville area!

What guests are saying...

Hello Spencer and Jess! Thank you so much for renting your wonderful river house to us. The house was so cozy and comfortable. We especially appreciated how it was so thoroughly stocked with everything we needed. And wow, the location was amazing and so beautiful, and peaceful. Very therapeutic and just what we needed during this time of mourning a beloved family member. My family thought I was taking them to La Quinta, but I surprised them with your house!! They were ecstatic. David was incredibly helpful, especially when we couldn’t unlock the bathroom doors lol. Please tell David how much we appreciated all of his help. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. The front porch area was our favorite space. We saw deer and ducks in the yard. We enjoyed walking down to the river every day. The park host lives on property and was always available for any assistance or questions we had. We would definitely stay here again.

This place is great! Large home that comfortably fits a large group. Beautiful view to the river with natural wildlife around. Very quiet and serene. This house is packed with amenities! Well thought out items like a guest book to sign. We made the greatest memories here. So happy we came.

This was a great reunion for great grandma, two sons, three grand kids and three spouses, four great grandkids, and a few dogs. Everybody was geared up originally for the Frio, but after staying here, this is the place. Was everything we wished for and more. The g great kids were in the water all the time. Nothing negative I could say. Host was very attentive, was on the site and responded immediately to every inquiry. Everybody has forgotten about the Frio, because of the easy access to the water. Didn’t have to load up several cars and drive and unload. Nice little rapid that you could float down and short walk back. Peaceful as well.

We all had an awesome time at Dave’s place. We spent much of our stay outdoors enjoying the awesome view, the sound of the river, sitting by the campfire, gazing at the stars, and lounging on the front porch. We could not have had more perfect weather. The house was well stocked and there was plenty of space for the 5 of us and two dogs to enjoy. Dave was very accommodating and entertaining. We will definitely return. I would highly recommend this place.
