Guest Feedback

Had another great weekend at the falls!! Such a great place to relax and enjoy the river. My favorite place in all of central Texas.

Cypress Falls River Retreat offers the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. From the moment you arrive, the stress of everyday life leaves, and you’re instantly relaxed, and ready to enjoy your surroundings. Your amenities include immaculately decorated spacious housing, beautifully manicured and landscaped grounds, immediate river access, fishing, swimming, tubing, kayaking, and rope swinging into the Guadalupe River. The grounds also include multiple fire rings and grills for outdoor cooking and relaxation. If those don’t consume your attention, you will be amazed by the protected exotic wildlife on the property. However, if you desire more than Gods little slice of Texas Heaven, you are located in the middle of Texas wine country, and multiple shopping destinations. You’re within minutes of Gruene, Fredericksburg, New Braunfels, San Marcos, and within 45 minutes of Austin, or San Antonio, if you desire.

Cypress Falls River Retreat will be the absolute perfect destination for family gatherings, vacationing, weddings, weekend getaways, or executive retreats. The beauty, amenities, and location make it an ideal destination for all of your needs. You can travel the entire state, and you will not see anything like this property in Texas. You will have to travel across the U.S. to find something comparable to Cypress Falls River Retreat. It’s truly a magnificent property, that is second to none.

The Rutherford family highly recommends Cypress Falls River Retreat to everyone!

An amazing slice of heaven. Easy access from ALL areas of Texas! Has everything out doors you can imagine with Canyon Lake minutes away and the Guadalupe river at your doorstep!! Bass fishing, trout fishing, hiking, along with entertainment and outlet mall shopping close by. Take advantage of a great opportunity to stay at a unique property!

The Cypress Falls River Retreat is an absolute must. Some of my best memories are fishing and canoeing in the river with all of my best friends. The countryside is gorgeous and the house is immaculate. There’s tons of land and endless activities that you can enjoy with your entire family. I definitely recommend making time to find out what the Cypress Falls River Retreat has to offer

Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, this place overwhelmingly exceeds the expectations in a little weekend getaway. From floating the river to sight- seeing the many exotic animals on the property, Cypress Falls River Retreat has everything and more to offer.

I stayed here for two nights with some friends. The place has everything you could possibly want in a getaway: beautiful natural scenery, grand living accommodations, modern kitchens, fun activities, and wonderful owners. From hilltop to open pasture to a seemingly endless tract of riverfront property, I was charmed and awed the whole time. Would be perfect for family reunions or corporate retreats among other uses. …. Oh! And don’t forget to tube down the famous Horseshoe Falls (on their property) while you’re there!

We had an amazing time and this was the most beautiful location we have ever been to… Everything was perfect and we had a wonderful time catching up with friends and family. It was a wonderful 4 days and everyone is still talking about the property and comfortable surroundings.

You want to be immersed in the beautiful scenery of the Texas Hill Country, yet you want the comfort and luxury of a good resort. You want to be secluded enough to enjoy peaceful quiet, yet close to a variety of nearby adventures and experiences. You want to be here. The homey aesthetic of the houses and the views of the river will endear you to the place in way no other place can. If you just want to have a vacation, go to any resort. But if you really want a place to cherish in your memory, go to this one.

A weekend at this property was one of the most breathtaking experiences I have had in the Texas Hill country. Combine the openness of the property, the soothing sounds of the river below, the firepit which was great for group gatherings, rocking chairs overlooking the dam, large enclosed patio which were great for lunches, and amenities such as kayak’s and tube’s to enjoy the river, and you have an unparalleled experience for groups and families. The location is close enough to go to town but i can promise you, you won’t want to leave!

If you’re looking for a relaxing, all inclusive getaway, you’re in the right place. Cypress Falls River Retreat has everything you could possibly imagine all in one place. Want to spend a night out in nature? Spend the night down by the river, or watch the sunset from the top of the dam. Want a day adventure with loved ones? Stop by Gruene Hall and grab an ice cream cone from the general store. Kids anxious for some fun? Enjoy a wild ride at Schlitterbahn! I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. I would stay forever if I could, believe me!!!

Cypress Falls River Retreat is an amazing place. Texas at its finest…Luxury, History, Texas Sized, and so many activities. This is THE PLACE for a corporate retreat or large family getaway. The river is refreshing, the wildlife is a sight to see, and the hiking is great. After your day of activities, you can relax all around the resort and unwind in luxury. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

When we arrived at the gates, we were sad we weren’t staying all week! The views! The comforts! The peace! High hills with forested shade, large open pastures, roaming deer, strutting peacocks, and the wide Texas sky welcome you to the river with its swimming holes and tumbling falls for rest, refreshment, and fun. There’s options for everyone to enjoy. The property, including several houses, is in excellent condition and the owners made sure we felt at home. We are already dreaming of a family vacation or a friends’ reunion at this wonderful retreat.

Amazingly beautiful place to bond, relax, and yet still competitively kayak, climb and roast marsh mellows! The sounds of the water combined with the gentle call of birds and frogs lull you into absolute nirvana! Complete luxury with total Texas perfection. Whether for a corporate retreat or a family reunion bonding retreat, this place will leave you refreshed and open for new opportunities.
