About Us

Retro meets modern


Vintage flair reminds you of simpler times! Cabin features 3 large bedrooms-a king bed in large downstairs master suite, upstairs north room offers two twin over full bunk beds and upstairs south bedroom sleeps two full size beds. 4 twin roll-a-way beds add extra sleeping capacity. Depending on your group size & comfort preferences, we recommend occupancy of less than 15 but home can accommodate a few more people if you have children or those who "camp" on the floor.  

Each level of house has a modernized and roomy full bath-upstairs features standard tub & shower combo with detachable spray head (perfect for bathing little ones) & downstairs has beautifully tiled over sized shower with sliding glass doors.



Fun and funky retro nods meet modern conveniences at River House Goliad. To stay connected, Wi-fi covers whole house and most outdoor porches. When the family has had their fill of outdoor fun, relax on two large leather sofas in front of the Smart 50" tv  featuring Netflix, Hulu or your own subscription tv service. The upstairs bunk room has a  flat screen t.v. for bring-your-own gaming units. ( IF you really want your kiddos to be on it!) 

Getting hungry? Cook up an amazing meal in River House's contemporary  kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances- a fantastic gas countertop stove, double oven,  dishwasher, large microwave, and side by fridge with ice maker.
