Secluded Oasis

You know when you find that perfect place and you don't want anyone else to know? The Casa de Rio Riverhouse is mine. This wonderful cabin sits high over the Guadalupe river. But when it gets too relaxing just sitting and watching and listening to the water flow amongst the towering cypress trees you can take the steps down to the patio next to the river and watch the kids jump into the river pool and enjoy the cool water. Or your can walk along the 400 foot of waterfront to a small dock and watch your kids and yourselves tube down the river. If you really want to go adventure, launch the canoes and paddle up to the falls. You know across the river is a big old abandon tv tower that you really have to look hard to spot. Make it an hiking adventure and hike up to it and see what's over the ridge, and view the valley.
I watched my youngest kid catch his first fish there. YES he was excited. If you get a little tired in the evening, start a fire in the fire ring and listen to the river on one side and fire crackle of the other and just take in the beauty. We've returned to this oasis many times. You won't find a nicer hosts in all of Texas than Ms. Betty and Ken!

Beautiful Property

We love Casa Del Rio Riverhouse! We've stayed here the past two years in a row, and just booked for a third year. Betty is a delight, and goes the extra mile to ensure her guests have everything they need. It's so peaceful spending our days fishing, kayaking, floating, hiking, and catching fireflies in the evening. It's the perfect summer getaway. Thank you, Betty!


I want to keep this place all to myself!

DO you ever find one of those places that you want to keep as a secret. This is one. Absolutely beautiful and tranquil with the sound of the river a few feet away. Watch the kids catch fireflies and swim in the river, take the canoe and paddle upstream to the rapids. Completely relax and appreciate the hospitality of a gracious host. I hate telling you about Casa del Rio because it is so cozy and comforable

Very Serene Atmosphere

We had a great time at Casa Del Rio. It was the first time I've been on the Guadalupe and didn't see other people. It's a great, beautiful location for a quick hill country getaway. It's very kid friendly and the river is very accessible for swimming or relaxing.
The owner is very nice and available if you have questions, but also not intrusive in any way. We are definitely going to return next spring!

Everything on this property declares the glory of God. The beautiful river & its soothing sound, the trees, the mountain in the background & the fireflies! Climbing the mountain & worshiping at the top was an unforgettable experience. Walking along the river at dusk and being surrounded by fairies (lightning bugs) was heavenly.

awesome and peaceful

This is the most beautiful place to go to if you want to go and have peace and quiet!
We took our grandkids on their spring vacation.... I will admit that it rained while we were there... but yet
it was beautiful just to hear the river flowing when my husband and I would get up in the morning to drink our
coffee and the grandkids would be asleep..... just so amazing!
When you stay in Mrs. Betty's place what ever you need ..... just ask her! She is the most sweetest lady you could ever meet.
All you have to worry about is taking your own groceries because everything else is provided.
I just want to "Thank you Mrs. Betty" for the board games that you provided for my grandkids and for the extra day....
to where they were able to go on the canoes... we will go back so that we can try out the tubing.
You are such a sweet lady Mrs. Betty... We do plan to come back.
Love you,

Great property!

Beautiful property! Betty (owner) is awesome. The place is only 50 minutes from Fredericksburgh. Definitely returning in the summer.

Casa Del Rio

My family and I had THE BEST time at Casa Del Rio. It was March so the water was a little chilly but the kids still had fun on the canoes and inner tubes! Betty was so nice and the house had everything we needed! The swings outside were a hit, plus there were lots of places to explore! We would go back in a heartbeat!!!

A Perfect Picture

It's hard to put into words an experience so needed to bring peace to anyone's soul. As me and my wife pulled into the front you see the beautiful house overlooking the river, we had the honor to meet with Betty who is the sweetest lady you could ever want to talk with. The property is truly amazing with the far right of the property has a small dock with access to the widest part of the river and a choice of Three canoes of course my wife chose the pink one and we rowed the 1/2 mile of lily pad covered calm, still, fish-filled river. A highlight on our rowing adventure there's a duck that will swim next to you and loves to have a little bread snack. Where the dock is located on the property the widest part of the river bottlenecks to a narrow stream the runs along the house for about 100 yards long, with a wonderful shaded little swimming/fishing hole. Toward the back of the property is a great wilderness for the explorer at heart; we enjoyed a nice hike up the hill to the top for a very nice view across the valley. We were sad to have to leave so soon but really needed to rejuvenation and reconnection for my wife and I as we can not wait to get back to this amazing place god has set aside for great people like Betty and Ken.

Thank you again Betty for sharing your property with us

Wonderful Riverfront Getaway

Thank you, Betty for providing our family with such a picturesque setting to enjoy our weekend in the hill country. We loved canoeing to Angel Falls, floating down the rapids by our cabin, and exploring the hills across the Guadalupe right outside our front door. We hope to return soon!
