If you're looking for an "off the beaten path getaway" check out the Heidelberg. We stayed last weekend for the night. It was off season so we had the place to ourselves. Pool not up and running yet, but we were there to kayak on the Guadalupe. Stayed in 1 bedroom #4 upstairs by pool and Comal. Nice location. Bathroom,... More

Stay two nights with my family. Booked after labor day and got a reasonable rate. Loved that my cabin faced pool and was adjacent to river. I found cabin to be stocked with appropriate utensils. My kids loved the game room and friendly staff. I was a bit wary when I read reviews that mentioned the vacation Nazi that worked... More

Dear Lucy, Thank you so much for the lovely review. We did change management a few years ago and, if you look at our reviews since that time, you can see that our customer service now is very different than before. We are very proud of the all the changes here. We appreciate you noticing and taking the time to... More

If you are looking for a place that is VERY family oriented, then look no more. We have been to Heidelberg 2 years in a row and plan on making it an annual family event. The "lodges" are more like glorified camping, but you do have A/C, a bathroom, and kitchenette. Really what more do you need when you should... More

We just enjoyed another Labor Day Weekend at the HL- always look forward to it. The staff is very helpful, and the grounds are clean and well kept. It was noticeable that ongoing improvements are being made, while keeping the vintage feel of the property. You cannot beat the location right on the river! The game room has all new... More

Great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Family oriented with a pool for the young ones to enjoy and for the adults, well, the River is walking distance. The place is secluded enough to enjoy the quite outdoors. There is deer walking around looking for something to eat...very nice to see. The staff is courteous and always willing to... More

We have been coming to the Heidelberg every other summer for over 30 years. This year was different. While trying to control the amount of "non-guests" utilizing the facilities, they have implemented an wrist band rule. So for a week, we had to wear a plastic band, like at a concert or Six Flags. This band "has" to be on... More

We appreciate your business for the last 30 years and were sorry to hear that our wristband policy caused you and your family problems. We always try to find good solutions for our guests and are sorry we weren't able to find a good solution for the placement of your wristband. We implemented this policy a couple of years ago...

Everything was relaxing-checking in and out-getting day passes for my friends, etc. The room was cozy and I am very happy to have it so close to everything. It took a minute to find everything- the maps they have weren't too helpful. I will definitely go back.

Thank you so much for the nice review. We were happy to host your family and glad to hear your reunion went so well. You are right, we don't have an air conditioned space for larger groups but find that most people enjoy our arcade/game and store areas opening directly onto the pool area for easy in and out.
