Rio Raton Duplex sleeps groups of 8 or less or 16 or less for both sides

You can rent only one side of the duplex (8 or less) but only on weekdays. Weekdays are promoted as FAMILY time and most likely but not guaranteed to be a family staying on the other side. Be sure to tell the correct number of guests and type that you only want one side and I'll manually change the price and send back!

WEEKNIGHTS are two-night minimum and generally start on Sunday at 5pm if Sunday is available. WEEKENDS are Thursday at 4pm to Sunday at 11am

The FLOOR PLAN for the ENTIRE house is as follows:

2 bedrooms have 1 queen bed each, 2 lofts have 1 queen bed each and 2 bedrooms have 4 twin beds EACH set-up on bunk beds. There is a queen sleeper/sofa in each of the 2 great rooms and of course there are 2 complete kitchens and 2 nice bathrooms. You can rent only ONE-SIDE for half of the above listed rooms/beds/baths/greatrooms/etc.

The Rio Raton Duplex is at 6780 River Road outside the city limits of New Braunfels. We are directly at Second Crossing.

This part of the GUADALUPE RIVER is the prime tubing section of the river. New Braunfels silly beer restriction laws DO NOT APPLY anywhere on this area of the Guadalupe.

I have another duplex located about one mile UP river called the Guadalupe River Duplex . That duplex and all information, description and booking calendar is on it’s own listing on . If the calendar is all booked for the this Duplex, then search for the Guadalupe River Duplex and check it’s calendar for availability.

My TWO DUPLEXES are called the Rio Raton Duplex and the Guadalupe River Duplex. They are both RIVERFRONT on the MAIN TUBING part of the Guadalupe River. They each have their very own personal web sites. The RioRatonDuplex is also listed on  and the GuadalupeRiverDuplex is only listed on .

There are tube, raft, and other rental outfitters within walking distance of either duplex. Although most of our guests float and/or tube the Guadalupe, Schlitterbahn is close by in New Braunfels and Fiesta Texas is a short drive to San Antonio as well as Natural Bridge Caverns, Wild Animal Park and the “Dirty Jobs” famous New Braunfels Snake Farm.

The Tanger Outlet Mall is 25 minutes away in San Marcos, There is Gruene Hall just down the road in Gruene, Texas as well as the monthly Gruene Market Days and Wimberly, Texas.

The Rio Raton Duplex is right at the “second crossing” on River Road about halfway to Canyon Lake. The lake has numerous parks and boat ramps for boats and jet skis.

ALL summer weekends are Thursday at 4pm to Sunday at 11am. Weeknight rates are SET but I will modify lower is you stay longer than 2 nights AND checkin on Sunday at 4pm. Winter and spring rates are MUCH cheaper than the rate chart shows. Email me for other specific "off season" rates.


We had a blast staying here for our girls weekend...definitely want to go back and stay there again in the future!

We had a great time! Micheal was super helpful in an uncertain Covid restrictions time! He kept us updated and we were able to float to his other property as well as anchor too the House Dock, even though all the shuttles were closed due to Covid. The house was super clean and the layout was just perfect! We had 6 couples and rented both sides of the duplex. It was more then enough room! We will be back!

Great house, great location and wonderful service from Michael! Hope to make this a yearly stay.
