About Russell Oppelt


Russell Oppelt purchased this House in 2006

Why Russell Oppelt chose New Braunfels

I had visited the New Braunfels/Lake Dunlap area since I attended college at Southwest. Later, family moved to New Braunfels and I’ve spent many summers and weekends visiting the area. And now my kids are enjoying the same things I’ve enjoyed for so many years. The New Braunfels area has so much to offer – Schlitterbahn, quaint shopping, small town atmosphere, festivals, close proximity to San Antonio. It’s a perfect place to go and enjoy living. I had been looking on and off for a few years for a place on the lake, and when I found this one, I jumped at the chance. I knew it would be a place I could enjoy for years to come, not only as an adult, but as a parent.

A beautiful place to stay if you are looking for a quality establishment.

                                                                  A great thanksgiving

                                                                  The house was a great fit for us. The kitchen was furnished with everything we needed, linens and towels were really nice. The kids really enjoyed the backyard and fire pit at night. We took our kayaks and everyone had fun on the water.

                                                                  We all decided we will be coming back.

                                                                  The property was a little unkept on the outside.

                                                                  Rita T.

                                                                  The house was a good fit for my family. We were all disappointed in the water. It was dirty and not really good for anything but getting wet. The outside area was enjoyable, however, there is zero privacy from neighbors on both sides.

                                                                  Better than expected!

                                                                  Courtney G.

                                                                  The pictures don't even begin to describe how awesome this place is. We had a wonderful girls trip and had more than enough room to hang out in the house, on the porch and even on the dock. If Gruene and floating the river is something of interest this is the place you'll want to stay as it is conveniently located. The owner is also very nice and easy to get a hold of if you have any questions. I would stay here again if the opportunity arises.

                                                                  Lovely Home with great Amenities

                                                                  David Q.

                                                                  My girlfriend and I were more than impressed with the home when I arrived. I booked it for the weekend to fish in the morning and to float the river with a group. The home was well furnished, stocked, and accommodated 10 people comfortably. The master bedroom and bathroom in particular is very nice. It sits on the Lake Dunlap which makes for a picturesque and relaxing scene when having breakfast in the morning.

                                                                  In regards to the property, the backyard is expansive and includes a firepit which is great for sitting around with friends in the evenings. We also enjoyed having a beer on the dock at night when the lake is very peaceful. The kitchen is stocked with basic spices as well as pots, pans, cutlery, a crockpot, and most appliances and other things you'd need to cook. I believe there were also boardgames and cable on the TV. There is also a smoker and grill present on site. Plenty of seating all around.

                                                                  In terms of the lake, it is fairly shallow except in the center. It reaches about chest high, so I strongly advise against diving in head first. It has a muddy bottom and the water is a comfortable temperature. Fishing from the dock during summer temperatures didn't yield much results. There are a lot of boats on the water during the day though it calms down significantly by the evening.

                                                                  New Braunfels was about 10-15 minute drive, closest HEB was just under 10. There are good restaurants near by and the beef I purchased from the butcher around the corner was solid.

                                                                  Russell is a good host and communication was quick and clear. Accessing the property was no problem at all. Everyone wants to come back next year for another trip and I think we will likely stay here again.

                                                                  Awesome Vacation Home!

                                                                  This home was just breathtaking! It had everything we needed plus more. The home was so beautiful and rooms were big and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook with. The master bedroom was my favorite part because I felt so relaxed from the shower to the bed it was gorgeous. The back yard was big and had a cool spot to make smores with the kids at night. We were able to see the firework display and our children loved it. We will defiantly book again soon!
