About the neighbourhood
Close to local river outfitters, fishing guides, Gruene and New Braunfels antique and specialty shops, day spas, wine tasting, beer gardens, taverns and restaurants, annual Wurstfest festivals, and popular live music venues, including Gruene Hall and the Whitewater Amphitheater. The Little Ponderosa River Outfitter is a short walk down our street where you can rent tubes to float the river. We love the food and casual dining at both the Gristmill and Mozie's bar and grill next to Gruene Hall. Both have great onion rings. Our favorite place for hamburgers and fries is Jay and Diane's picnic table outdoor dining at the corner of Hwy. 306 and 2673.
Getting around
A car is recommended if you want to enjoy the sites and activities surrounding the property. Little Ponderosa River Retreat is close to the Schlitterbaun water park in New Braunfels, the antique and specialty shops in Gruene and New Braunfels, and the large outlet shopping mall in San Marcos. Be sure to visit Gruene Hall, the oldest working dance hall in the Country. The Whitewater amphitheater, an outdoor music venue down the road in Sattler, TX, draws famous country and rock musicians and bands.
