Reiley Retreat is your vacation retreat, perched on the banks of the Guadalupe River. This bright, updated duplex offers a rare opportunity to enjoy the Texas outdoors with friends/family while having totally separate indoor living spaces. Fire pit & hammocks included. Sleeps 10 (max of 8 adults). *Please note tiered pricing based on guest count.

Our Lake Placid recently turned back into the Guadalupe River after a spill gate failure on the dam in October 2021. We now have a great spot for fishing, tubing, and lounging with your toes in the water. We have areas with calm, deeper water good for wading/fishing and some shallow, rocky areas with mini "rapids" for tubing or just sitting with your toes in the water. Bring a fishing rod, tube, lawn chair, water shoes, and you can have a wonderful time in the river. Or stay on the banks to relax in the hammock or roast marshmallows by the fire pit (s'mores sticks included).

My husband and I ran a business in Austin for over 10 years and couldn't leave for more than a long weekend. We are both water lovers, so we started getting away for long weekends in Seguin on this chain of lakes (Guadalupe River). We fell in love and decided to buy a place for ourselves. It has turned into multiple properties that I manage, which gives me the flexibility to spend more time with our growing family. Plus, we always have a place to stay since this has become our favorite place to vacation!
