We travel to Gruene often, the Gruene River Inn is our go-to place to stay. Yes, it is a little bit further of a walk that the mansion but considering the difference in price, I will walk a little bit further. Plus, there are all sorts of fun places to stop in on the way.

The Gruene River Inn sits high above the Guadeloupe River with balconies and great views. Interesting Inn with B&B amenities. The Rio Grande had high ceilings, a queen bed with SW decor, a huge jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace for colder weather. The balcony was small, but room to sit and take in the view. Friendly owner, lots of snacks...

Great view from balcony. Nice rooms with gas fireplace adds special touch. Great breakfast. Super friendly staff to greet you. Snacks available in main area in case you get hungry at night (very thoughtful). Close to attractions. Bed was comfortable -- wish it was a little larger. Can't wait to get back for another overnight stay!

We stayed for our anniversary. The rooms are very nice, with large oversized jacuzzi tubs.
