Come and enjoy the million-dollar views at Reiley Retreat, perched on the banks of Lake Placid, a constant level lake just east of New Braunfels. This crisp 2 bedroom, 1 bath duplex, ideal for smaller groups (up to 8), has been recently remodeled and updated with designer furnishings and accents. Please feel free to bring your boat and/or RV. A public boat launch is nearby, and you are welcome to use our boat slip for the duration of your stay. We also have an additional driveway to park your RV.
The panoramic views will take your breath away as you watch the world wake up with a hot cup of Joe on our new back deck. It’s even easy to enjoy grilling dinner out back on the propane grill because the east-facing orientation and a huge cantilever umbrella shield you from the brutal Texas summer sun.
Enjoy over 100’ of improved waterfront including a boatlift (if you choose to bring your own boat), dock with boardwalk, hammock, and shaded grassy lawn. The refreshing waters of the lake readily greet those who enter. Water depth varies from thigh-high near the boardwalk and continues to get much deeper as you swim out further from shore. Kayaks, stand up paddleboards, Rubber Dockie (huge floating mat), an array of other floats, and horseshoes are provided for fun in the sun all day long.
As twilight falls, you’re welcome to chase fireflies, star gaze, or even enjoy some night fishing. This spot is great for anglers, so we’ve outfitted the water with underwater green fishing lights so that you might actually be able to call it “catching.”
Inside, you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen including new, stainless appliances, microwave, Crock Pot, blender, toaster, electric teakettle, and your choice of Keurig, Nespresso, and coffee maker. A rolling wine and coffee bar can double as an extra workspace if you’re really ambitious in the kitchen. The utility room off the kitchen hosts new, large capacity washer/dryer for all of your laundry needs.
The bedrooms have been designed so that you can settle in and make this your home away from home; one with a queen size sleigh bed, the other with a double bed and twin trundle. You will also find a cot-sized rollaway bed and a pack n play to accommodate the whole family. In each bedroom, you will find a full-size closet, large dresser, and flat screen TV, along with luxurious pillows and linens that will envelop you at the end of your day. If you don’t want to wait until bedtime, feel free to indulge in an afternoon snooze since the light-blocking drapes will make it cozy and dark for you.
The living area features a 55” flat screen TV, wood-burning fireplace, and amazing views of the lake from anywhere you sit. It’s stocked with games and puzzles to make fun family memories, plus an array of books to savor in the reading nook. The couch transforms into a double bed with a gel memory foam mattress, and if you need to stay connected, our WiFi goes all the way to the waterfront.
We’d be honored for you to be our guest at Reiley Retreat!
