River-road

Texas Hill Country Bed & Breakfast Homepage
   The Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake Texas is a paradise in the middle
of the Texas Hill Country. River Road is a winding road that takes you to
most all the river outfitters in the area. This little slice of paradise
is a beautiful place to visit and must be a joy to live in. The people 
who run the river outfitters are warm and friendly. I have spent some 
time in the area and made some friends like Charles and Jane Lackey.
  These pages are some of the River Outfitters and hotel and accommodations 
folks I have talked to and recommend if you ever get that way.

Welcome to Lone Star Float House! We are located on River Road 7/10 mile up river from the Second Crossing. We have beautifully decorated, air conditioned cabins overlooking the river with a lush, private picnic area. We offer many float trips ranging from rafting exciting rapids to a cool leisurely trip in a tube as you watch the beautiful Hill Country float by. All of our float trips feature the popular “Tube Chute” where you can stop and run the chute a few times and hang out with friends for a while before the last leg of your float (about 15 minutes). When you reach the float house, you are at your destination, now you can get dry and feed, cause we have a full grill featuring our “Great Burgers” and “Float House Nachos” along with other favorites, like Bar-B-Que and Grilled Chicken. It’s also a great way to start the morning. Either fresh out of your tent, or, cabin (although our cabins do offer kitchenettes), or a power snack before an early float, “Tuttle’s Breakfast Tacos” are a Guadalupe River must have! Our deck overlooking the river is a great, scenic place to kick back with your old friends or ones you’ve newly made, listen to music, have a beer, a bite to eat, and watch the sun set. We cater to all groups, so it’s a great highlight for a reunion, party or church group and even a business trip that just needs a break. We can customize a trip to meet everyone’s needs, even if they aren’t all the same! We can supply the tubes, rafts, life vest, paddles, ice chest, beer, wine, soft drinks, bottled water, snacks, ice, and many other necessities. PLEASE be sure and wear suitable shoes and do not go if you can not swim. We do not recommend children under 6.
