Beautiful location and private. We didn’t bring a large group with us on our trip, but this house would have been perfect for it. Great set up for large families or groups. Owners were great to work with and incredibly thoughtful. My favorite part was watching the sunrise with my daughter from the dock. You can’t recreate that sort of beauty. We even got a visit from an owl, which was so cool. If you want a great river location with magnificent shade trees, this place has it! We had a great time.

Great home for large groups. We had 30 people for a bit of a family reunion, and the River Haven was a fantastic spot for it. It was well stocked and had plenty of great amenities. Having a separate guest house was convenient for the night owls to be separate from the kids, so they could sleep in. We did everything! We cooked, we kayaked (brought our own), we swam, we rented jet skis, we had a bon fire and s’mores, we played frisbee, ladder ball, tether ball, we fished, we relaxed, we brought our game systems and gamed. The layout of the bedrooms is a bit odd, but no one minded it. Walmart and H-E-B are 15 min away. The check out instructions are basic and easy. I would definitely recommend the River Haven to others.” - Misti D., September, 2019

Great place for vacation with family.
— Maria S., September, 2019

“This was our fourth year to have our annual multigeneration family vacation/reunion at the Riverhaven. Thank you to Darius and Carlos for keeping their property well maintained and for checking in with us throughout our stay to make sure we have everything we need. The large shaded yard is perfect for the elderly, the pregnant moms and the babies to enjoy outdoor fun with everyone during the day and evening. Love the large firepit. We have firepit night with roasted weiners, hotdogs, frito pie and smores while we watch a movie on our blow up outdoor screen. Thanks for another memorable family vacation. We will be back again next year!” - Gail G. July, 2019

Great property and very attentive owners. Perfect for a relaxing week with family with plenty of options for fun and recreation.
— Alan B. June, 2019
Great weekend. Great property for family get together. Everyone had a blast. We are already talking about returning
— Noel M. June, 2019

“Great place to relax. Worked perfectly for 9 adults needing time away from work. Plenty of room and very comfortable. Look forward to staying here again.“ - Andy M. May, 2019

Fantastic home. Spent this past weekend at The River Haven with 28 college girlfriends. We graduated in the 1980’s and this was a perfect location to gather and spend the weekend catching up. The home was perfect for a large group, well stocked and beautiful grounds. Darius and Carlos were very quick with responses and meeting our needs. We all highly recommend The River Haven and it was a unanimous vote yes to stay here again!”
— Dori W. May, 2019

“Beautiful Weekend. Home had everything we needed and more. Kitchen is fully stocked which made cooking meals a breeze. We made bbq on the first night and the large gas grill was much appreciated. Husband loved that thing lol. The floating mat was the highlight of the kids weekend. Was hilarious watching them do flips and cannon balls off of it. Everything was just as pictured. OMG THE SUNSETS here are perfect every night! Carlos and Darius were a joy to work with. Very attentive and professional. Thanks again guys!“ - Laura R. March, 2019

Fantastic place to visit. Our family had an amazing time. Everything we needed was here for a family that cooks gourmet meals and likes to have a good time. I would highly recommend and I would return.
— Molly S. April 2019

“Just what our family needed. We had originally booked this lovely home to celebrate our grandmothers birthday but sadly she left us a few month ago prior to our stay. We all decided to proceed with the trip and do what she had been so excited to do while on the river. Fish and sit around the fire pit. And that's exactly what we did. The River Haven helped turn what was one of the hardest times in our lives into a wonderful weekend full of laughter and happy tears. We all exchanged stories around the fire pit of all her hilarious and wild adventures. My sides hurt from laughter days after we returned home. Thank you guys so much helping us feel comfortable, all of your well thought out amenities and allowing us to use your home for the closure we all desperately needed. Thank you thank you thank you” - Steph L. March, 2019

”Outstanding vacation home. Fantastic accommodation to suit large groups. The dock is amazing and provided hours of amusement for the kids to fish from and the view from the patio overlooking the property is superb. The main house has everything you need and the guesthouse is also self contained with theater room and kitchen. Carlos, the caretaker is great to deal with and extremely helpful.” - Ben M. Febraury, 2019

Wedding weekend. This house was perfect for a large group. We stayed here with family and friends for our daughter’s wedding at the Allen Farmhaus. We will be back.
— Leah H. January 2019
Great retreat spot. Annual gift exchange/retreat here at The River Haven. Wouldn’t have it anywhere else. Thanks again!
— Brenda G. January, 2019

”Great property for a large group. The house was great for our team meeting. Enough rooms to accommodate the group and great space for gathering and working through our meeting agenda. Tv/Audio system was excellent. Only a slight glitch in finding the right cord to connect our computer. Property management was a very responsive to our questions.” - Nancy K. January, 2019

Perfect big family getaway! This beautiful and spacious home was exactly what our family was looking for on our destination Christmas holiday. It is beautifully furnished, with tasteful and inviting decor. Between the many rooms, multiple tvs and entertainment options, spacious deck with lovely views, the dock and the fire pit area, we never felt like we were on top of each other. We had multiple family members pop in on different days to hang out and catch up, and all were impressed by this great home. From my 97 year-old grandfather to my five year-old twin girls, we all had a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful time. It was a perfect way to spend our Christmas together. We definitely plan to be back some day!
— Kathryn R. January, 2019

“Perfect for a large family gathering. Comfortably accommodated our 22 family members. The kitchen was well equipped, we found having the separate drink fridge in the kitchen area very handy. Good speaker system. A beautiful property. The fire pit and yard were fun. Wish there were a bigger collection of outdoor games, but the kids loved the Xbox! A great time!” - Susan D. December, 2018

Great House for a large group! Close to so much! Driving up we were wondering if we were in the right place as the house doesn’t look very big. From the back though you can see how large it is and the immense number of bedrooms made it fantastic for our company Christmas weekend trip. Well appointed, homey and spacious with everything you could need. Huge fire pit in the backyard with a long dock for sitting by the Guadalupe River — it was just great! Darius was great to work with and we had a great time.
— Doug C. December, 2018

“A great retreat for large groups. The River Haven was a wonderful place for all our family to be together for Thanksgiving. The place was very comfortable and spacious. We loved the main kitchen, which was fully stocked. Having the other two kitchens was a treat providing plenty of room for our famous cooks to make their delicious dishes in a timely manner. All the matresses were comfortable with top quality linens and extra linen and pillows for the futons. We highly recommend “The River Haven” as a retreat for large groups.“ - Betty G. November, 2018

The house was incredible! We enjoyed every minute. Management was wonderful as well.
— Morgan C. September, 2018

“The house was incredible! We enjoyed every minute. Management was wonderful as well.” - Morgan, September, 2018

Beautiful place! We celebrated my wife’s 40th at the River Haven and it did not disappoint! We had an awesome time enjoying the lake and the beautiful surroundings. The house is huge and beautifully kept. Darius (the owner), really takes the time to make sure you have everything you need to make your stay as wonderful as possible. We are already planning our next get together at this place.
— Gary B. , September, 2018
Very comfortable and there was plenty of space for all of us. No complaints or regrets!
— Ruth Ann, September, 2018

“Very Enjoyable perfect set-up for lots of people! Our company planned a weekend outing of floating the river to blow off some steam. We had 22 males stay here and we were in no way cramped. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy their time. There is something for everyone in the group here. Between fishing, swimming, campfires, music, tv, movie room, etc. it is impossible to come here and be bored. We had a personal chef come and cook our meals. Plenty of room in the kitchen for him to cook for all of us. If you have a large group and you are looking at staying in the area, look no farther!” - Danny, August, 2018

A great place to come together and enjoy life. River Haven, a beautiful place——richly decorated, spotlessly clean, flawlessly furnished with the things we would need during our 3-day stay of 25 people, ages 7 to 92 years. The dock area, with fishing pier, swimming and float pad, were especially relished by most, with the gorgeous tree-covered lawn enjoyed by all, for visiting, family games and taking in the beauty of Nature and the joy and gratitude of a loving family. It was greatly enjoyed and we commend you for offering such a lovely place to spend time with family.
— Loraine N. , August, 2018

Beyond Expectations. Our family loved everything this home has to offer! It was perfect for our family reunion/64th birthday for our dad. The fisherman really enjoyed catching catfish all night while the little ones roasted marshmallows and hotdogs for dinner. The kitchen is VERY well stocked and we had no problem with serving the 26 people in our group. It was pretty hot outside during the dates we stayed but the river as well as the ac in the home kept us cool no problem. The floating mat off the dock was probably our favorite part which wasn’t even advertised when we booked a year ago so it was a great surprise when we arrived! The night time lighting is also very pretty and offered plenty of light for night time games in the yard. The house is HUGE and offered so much room to spread out. Everyone had a place to sleep and they don’t cram a bunch of bunk beds in the rooms which we all really appreciate. Carlos was amazing to work with and the whole booking process was super easy. We had all decided on the way back home that we’re booking again next year for sure. - Susan B. July. 2018

Amazing family gathering spot! Our extended family had a great time at The River Haven. This property is well maintained and offers lots of space for everyone. The kids enjoyed the floating pad while floating in the river. The large shaded yard is perfect for family games when time is needed out of the sun. We will be back next year. Thank you for such a memorable family vacation.

A great place to get the family together for some time away from it all. Sixteen of us gathered here for an extended weekend break. We were comfortable, never felt crowded, and really had a lot of fun making memories together. The water was great and the location was perfect. The owners live nearby and are responsive if you need anything resolved, but that is unlikely since they have it ready when you arrive. We'll be back! - Dan E. , July, 2018

Loved it. Enjoyed it. Very Beautiful home!

Perfect Place. We had our family reunion here and it was absolutely perfect! The setting was gorgeous with the beautiful shade trees. The dock was wonderful along with the floating mat! Carlos answered every question we would have and returned calls and emails within minutes. We will definitely come back!
— JB T. July, 2018

We celebrated my Dad's 70th birthday with a family reunion the weekend before the 4th of July. There were 18 adults, and 9 kids, including 3 under 4 years old. We shared multiple family meals each day, and we spent the majority of our days down in the river or on the dock. It was hot outside, but the A/C was cold, and we all slept comfortably! Everyone enjoyed the fact that we were all able to stay 4 nights in the same house together with countless opportunities to catch up, visit, and play games together. Our family was so blessed by the River Haven, and we look forward to a potential repeat stay in the future! - John M. June, 2018

Absolutely perfect! First family reunion ever. I had not seen half of the people in 40 years (I’m 46). It’s was the perfect setting for all the things. Kitchen very well stocked, ac worked great, awesome location. Just perfect!
— Cristie F. June, 2018

True "Haven" Just WONDERFUL!!! The home is beautiful and inviting. It is decorated beautifully, very clean and has all you can ask for in the kitchen for great family time and meals The dock with the GREAT float is just the place for relaxing and hanging out with family and friends. I cannot say enough about this amazing property and the owners have done a EXCELLENT job making it the perfect getaway!!! Thank so much!! Cannot wait to return. - Trisha O. June, 2018

Nice, Peaceful, Clean & Relaxing. We spent 2 nights for a short team building retreat and loved our time there! We hope to return!
— Joel L. May, 2018

River Haven was the perfect location for our long overdue extended family reunion on the Guadalupe River! Carlos and Darius were great to work with and super helpful. The grounds were beautiful—from the large lawn, beautiful, sprawling pecan trees and live oaks, to the dock, fire pit, and great lighting for evening activities (like 9 kids playing hide-and-seek tag!). First thing in the morning, the kids would grab breakfast, suit up and head down for a game of “sea monster” on the awesome floating mat. One of our families brought a boat, and Carlos prepared the dock for us to be able to dock it. The kitchens were more than well equipped (almost too well equipped—some cabinet space could be opened up by removing some of the additional appliances...the main kitchen alone had about 5 coffee makers 😂). We prepared our own meals most nights—each family took a turn. Loved eating dinner together on the back deck. And coffee in the morning on the deck with the beautiful view of the river was the best. The rooms were clean, and there was plenty of room for all 21 of us! This was a perfect escape for us to recreate our TX Guadalupe summers for our kids. Not sure we will ever have all of us together in TX again, but if we do, we wouldn’t hesitate to rent River Haven again. - David G. June, 2018

"Awesome River Home! Very clean, lots of space, and beautiful home and property! Would definitely recommend." - Debra S. May, 2018

We had a wonderful time! Our two 91 year old birthday girls had the time of their lives and want to do it next year for their 92nd!
— The Culberson & McCarroll Family, April, 2018
Very clean and tons of fun! With 15 women, it is not always easy to please everyone. However, the River Haven did just that!! Great times.
— Lindsey F. April, 2018

We had a church “family” gathering of 23 people over Memorial Day Weekend. This was a great property for our family with several bedrooms. Feeding such a large group we were concerned about the refrigerator space, however three refrigerators more than accommodated our needs. The home was well air conditioned and had no problem keeping us cool on a very hot weekend! The river was much quieter than expected for a holiday weekend. The yard is lush, well shaded and big enough for many activities. The swim area around the dock seems to be 4-8 feet deep which was perfect for floating and "keep away". The neighbors were even friendly! We brought our own kayak, “john” boat and floats. The owners were easy to reach if needed and even offered area attraction recommendations, although there really is no reason to leave the river! This house really is a hidden oasis on the Guadalupe river! The home was clean, had charm and worked well for our group. I would highly recommend this rental for a variety of functions. - Angela W. May, 2018

Beautiful! Wonderful Experience! Great Memories!
— Dede C. February, 2018

"My family and I had a great time at River Haven this week! The house was perfect for accommodating our large group, with plenty of room to spread out. The kids loved playing in the large yard and we enjoyed relaxing on the deck overlooking the river. The house was meticulously maintained and beautifully decorated. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend Spring Break with our family!" - Cynthia S. March, 2018

This is a great spot for a getaway, reunion, or retreat. Tucked away in Seguin this place offered a remote feel with easy access to modern amenities and a quick drive for any supplies and groceries. We were here for a work retreat/brainstorming session and found the house perfect for our needs. The owners were also very easy to work with and responsive. I definitely recommend this place.
— Matt A. March, 2018

"Beautiful, Peaceful, Relaxing. We celebrated a wonderful 60th birthday celebration with friends and family. People flew in from all over and everyone loved the amenities. The rooms were comfortable, kitchen well stocked, the dock was wonderful, and the fire pit was perfect. The little guys in our group caught their 1st fish. Everyone really enjoyed being together in a perfect setting. A treasured memory was made." - Jill R. March, 2018

Very nice place. Quiet place to relax and enjoy family
— Juan J. April, 2018
Fantastic setting for a weekend on the lake catching up with old friends. The owners obviously take great pride in their property. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing setting in this area.
— June, 2017

"Amazing home! This house had everything we needed and it was perfect for our little ceremony! Everyone stayed comfortably with all of the room options. We're hoping to come back in the future!" - Kristal B. January, 2018

"Reunion was grand!! We hosted our reunion here at the River Haven. So beautiful and so fun! Thank you!" - Alice T. November, 2017

"Place gets better and better every year we love these guys. The new fire pit and upgraded dock was the highlight this year for sure. The fisherman in our family never left the dock. Our group ranges from 15-22 people ages 5-75 every year and the home always has all the amenities and space we could ask for. Carlos and Darius have set up something very special here at The River Haven. They’ve got you covered for any family reunion such as ours or any group wanting that great customer service and attention to detail. We look forward to our stay in 2018!" - The Smith Crew, September 2017

Pride of ownership is evident. To anyone in the world that is looking for a comfortable vacation space for a large group - your search is over - THIS IS IT!.
— Gwen of Aledo, TX December 2012

"The house was the perfect size for our family reunion. Perfect kitchen and bar to hang out while cooking and watching football / baseball on the 2 TV's. The outside deck was great for morning coffee and the fire pit was perfect for evening guitar / singing sessions. Used the river for jet ski's and paddle boards. Everyone had a great time." - Steve. H October 2017

"Beautiful, peaceful location-- fun for the entire family! We came down for July 4th week and the house and the location were both fabulous! There is so much room to accommodate multiple families and give everyone separate spaces so you don't feel like you are on top of each other, but plenty of room to gather together either in the living areas or outside on the wonderful dock and decks overlooking the river. The kitchen was well stocked with every tool we needed. The kids loved the media / video game room -- just an added bonus to all the the fun we had on the river. Nice location also -- close to both Seguin and New Braunfels. We highly recommend and look forward to returning." - Scott A. July 2017

Amazing home. This house had everything we needed and it was perfect for our little ceremony! Everyone stayed comfortably with all of the room options. We’re hoping to come back in the future!
— Kristal B. January 2018

"Great Place for the Winter Months: My family has traveled down south to this home every winter for the past 4 years to get away from all the heavy snow up north. The colder weather here is much more favorable and the homes indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit are wonderful to have. Drinking coffee on the dock every morning is very relaxing as well. With little river traffic at this time taking our kayaks out was a breeze." - Susan, February, 2016

We had everything at our fingertips,
— GG of Pleasanton, TX July 2014

"Family Spring Break Trip: So happy we rented this place out 4 nights we really did not want to leave! The lake water was a bit chilly but the weather was nice and warm and didn't bother us at all while floating out in front of the homes dock. One of our little ones caught a turtle on the day we fished it was great. The home is very cozy, clean and well taken care of. Staff is wonderful and is quick to reply and assist with anything. Already planning our next trip back!" - Daisy L, March 2016

The place was so clean and obviously well cared for.
— Kara F. April 2014
Bridal / Mother’s Birthday: We had my bridal shower and celebrated my mother’s birthday at this cabin. Everything went perfect and we can’t wait to come back with our family soon.
— Miranda S, May 2016

"We had our family reunion here. There were 27 of us at the same time. River Haven was a great place for us. The deck and the outside is where we spent most of our time. We had a slight water problem but the management was out personally in no time at all. It was close to lots of things to do. We had a great time" - Jeanne, June 2016

The setting and amenities were perfect and as promised.
— Elizabeth of Keller, TX May 2012

"Great Retreat Spot - Our group of 16 had a great time here. It provided the setting for relaxed meetings, meals, and fun. The property is clean and functional. I wish I owned it:) If I did, I would enjoy being on the back deck as much as possible! The place is clean and has charming quality about it. Things are great here. Some input - if you are going to be cooking bring an extra skillet and pot. Also, make sure you rinse the dishes well before loading into dishwasher. This is as critical as I can be, because otherwise I have no complaints!" - Lisa B, October 2017

"Darius, the owner, is such a pleasure to work with. He responds quickly to questions. He leaves no detail to chance. He and his team keep the place beautifully maintained. We loved this location. It was the perfect backdrop for our family to make some memories that are truly priceless. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!" - Rachel of Corpus Christi, TX November 2011

The facilities were perfect in every way. The owners have done a fantastic job at anticipating every need the guests may have.
— Maritza of Belton, TX February 2014

"Beautiful 5 Star Retreat - This place is beautiful!! Every room is joyful to the eyes! It is comfortable and well appointed. There's plenty of room to gather and there's private to semi-private bedrooms to accommodate various needs. The view is amazing with large windows, huge trees and the lovely river in the backyard! Everything is in top working condition! The kitchen and surrounding bar is lovely! The downstairs has bar and a fooseball table which is another fun place to gather. It was cold this time of years and the owners provided firewood for us to enjoy a cozy fire in the fireplace. The outside decks, seating and grill are lovely also the deck and seating  alongside the river! It is a fabulous place for a large group to enjoy! We loved our stay and plan to book it yearly!" - Yada Group, February 2015

By Saturday, everyone decided that we were coming here next year so we are booked for the same time next year.
— MC of Rosenberg, TX February 2014
A little piece of heaven on earth. It is breathe takingly beautiful here! The main house is spacious and accommodating.
— Kryssie of Houston, TX May 2015

"This place is amazing. We had a family retreat at this property and it was the greatest weekend. The owner has thought of every detail, there's nothing you could want for. He's so easy and friendly to work with, is truly passionate about making sure you have a great experience. And we absolutely did. If you're searching for a place, do not hesitate to book this one. You won't be disappointed." - Lynn of San Antonio, TX , October, 2011
