The Lone Star at Reiley Retreat River Access Staycation / FastWiFi / Schlitterbahn

2 Bedrooms • 1 Bath • Sleeps 1-5
Internet 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 (surcharge for 5th guest).

Our Lake Placid returned to being the Guadalupe River after dam failure October 2021. The exposed riverbed is expansive and rogue with greenery during most seasons, but we maintain a cleared path to the water for our guests. Bring a fishing rod and/or river shoes, and you can have a wonderful time. Or stay on the banks to relax in the hammock or roast marshmallows by the fire pit (s'mores sticks included). **Please read photo captions as a few depict previous water level as well as current condition of river bed. As of August 2023, the water can be murky due to low water flow and high temps.**

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 to 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 The Lone Star at Reiley Retreat is booked on your preferred dates, please check out the other unit of this duplex, The Agave at Reiley Retreat. We also own Meadow Lake Retreat (2 tiny homes on Meadow Lake in Seguin) and Lake Nolte Retreat (1 tiny home on Lake Nolte in Seguin).

We live locally and are only a phone call away if you need anything. We also 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.

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!
