Size –2 Bedrooms • 1 Bathroom 1 Bath • Sleeps 1-5
Reiley Retreat is your vacation retreat, perched on the banks of the Guadalupe River. This bright, updated duplex offers comforts of home with a surplus of amenities, plus the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Texas outdoors with friends & family. Fire pit & hammocks included. Sleeps 5 (max 4 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).

This listing is for one side of a duplex. You'll have the carport/driveway, inside living space, and back deck (outdoor dining/grill) to yourself, but the lawn/firepit/hammock area may be shared with up 5 guests from the other unit. We've even had a number of folks tell us they enjoyed “socially distant” s’mores around the fire pit.
If Reiley Retreat is booked on your preferred dates, please check out our sister property, Meadow Lake Retreat (2 tiny homes that can be rented together or separately on 100' of Meadow Lake/Guadalupe River which is still FULL OF WATER).
We're only a phone call away if you need anything. We have local maintenance and housekeeping available for needs that may arise during your stay with us.
You'll likely need a car to get around. HEB will deliver to your doorstep via Shipt. Please check on Uber/DoorDash as those services seem to be intermittent here.

About the OwnerMy 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!
