The Agave at Reiley Retreat River Access Getaway / Fast WiFi / Schlitterbahn

2 Bedrooms • 1 Bath • Sleeps 1-5
Internet Fireplace River (more...)

Perched above the banks of the Guadalupe River in Seguin, TX, this bright, updated duplex offers comforts of home with a surplus of amenities, a great location to explore Central Texas. Direct river access through backyard. Fire pit & hammock included. Sleeps 5 ($25/night surcharge for 5th guest).

The water levels depicted in the photos are current. The water has been down for the last several years, but it's not due to drought conditions. The dam that created Lake Placid from the Guadalupe River since 1928, is being repaired because of a failure in October 2021. While it’s now a river (12-15’ lower than when it was a lake), it’s pretty consistent level and flow, despite rainfall, because it’s fed from the bottom of Canyon Lake. The river has a muddy bottom, so plumes of button moss can float downstream and sometimes collect at water's edge, esp during warmer summer months.

The dry lakebed is the limiting factor. Because it’s so extensive, most of it is overgrown, and there are only few paths that folks have cleared to get to the river. The spots you can access are good for fishing, wading, and swimming. It varies from ankle deep at the edge to over 6 feet in the river channel. 

If you're looking for a place to kayak and paddleboard, you should check out our other properties, 3 tiny homes about 15 minutes down river: Meadow Lake Retreat (2 houses: Loft and Bunk) and Lake Nolte Retreat (1 house).

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!
