Property description

BlueMoon Inn is truly an extraordinary waterfront retreat with panoramic views of spectacular Lake Dunlap. Only five miles to Gruene and the center of New Braunfels! Explore the many amenities this lakefront home has to offer and you just may never leave! Email me or call me to book now!!!

The newly remodeled main house has three spacious bedrooms, all with private TV's and DVD players. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated with warm and inviting color schemes. Sink down into your own plush pillow top mattress along with cozy hand stitched quilts from the local quilters of Gruene. With three full baths your guests will have plenty of time to shower or freshen up before dinner.

You'll enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and the latest cooking accessories to make that perfect gourmet meal. The dining area seats up to 16 and is open to the family room which consists of a large wall of glass windows overlooking the sunroom and the lake. Watch one of your favorite movies from our extensive library come to life on a 50' flat screen plasma TV. Stay connected to family, friends, or your office with WiFi computer access throughout the home.

Just a few steps down from the family room, is the bright and cheery sunroom which is also surrounded in floor to ceiling glass. This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or to use as an additional dining area. Right outside the main house, a private bungalow provides a large, separate sleeping area for those who want to get away from the rest of the crowd or for the older kids who want a place of their own. This area includes three twin over full bunk beds, TV, DVD player, and a refrigerator for your convenience. A private deck gives you the best views of the lake.

The outdoor patio areas of this home are an entertainer's dream with four separate gathering areas. The cook of the family will love the stainless gas grill for cooking their best grilled recipes. In the evening dine alfresco on the adjoining patios under twinkling white lights.

In the summer, use our pier to dock your boats and jet skis or rent a pontoon or ski boat from one of the local rental companies. Swimming, fishing, boating and all water sports are in full swing during this time of year. Your family will love the many activities this lake has to offer. On those chilly autumn nights, watch the bright stars of the hill country while relaxing in the heated Jacuzzi tub or gather round the stone patio and fire pit on the banks of Lake Dunlap to watch the roaring fire as the moonlight dances over the water.

Curious about other adventures in the area? Drive only two miles down the road to explore the many activities New Braunfels has to offer. Leisurely tube or kayak down the Guadalupe or Comal rivers for the day or take the kids to Schlitterbaun, the #1 water park in the world!

If you're searching for a unique shopping experience, look no further than across the river in the Gruene Historic District. This quaint little town along the Guadalupe River is a paradise for those searching for antiques, ironworks, pottery and other fine accessories. Try one of the many popular restaurants Gruene has to offer or relax with a glass of wine at the local wine tasting shop while sampling exclusive Texas wines, champagne and specialty beers.

Later in the evening, enjoy lively entertainment and dancing at Gruene Hall where the likes of George Strait, Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett first started their country western careers. Gruene is also known for hosting various special events and celebrations almost every weekend from March through December. Enjoy 'Gruene Market Days' once a month or catch one of the many music or wine fests scheduled throughout the year.

Care for some shopping on a grander scale? The famous San Marcos Outlet Mall is only a few short minutes away with the some of the finest retail stores available while providing some of the greatest discount prices found in Texas. Crate n Barrel, Coach, Pottery Barn and Chico's are just a few of the stores included in this giant outdoor mall.

So come visit us at BlueMoon Inn. Whether you decide to relax by the lake under a blanket of stars or explore the many activities of the hill country area, your vacation will surely be one to remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: This is a picture of the Thompson family at one of their favorite restaurants, The Gruene Onion Grill in New Braunfels. Greg & Tana Thompson are the proud owners of BlueMoon Inn on Lake Dunlap. Tana Thompson is a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos and Greg is an A&M alumn. Taylor, the oldest daughter also graduated from Texas State University with her Master's in 2012 in Strategic Marketing. Their son Hunter is a sophomore at Texas State as well. The Thompson's bought BlueMoon Inn in September of 2008 and totally renovated the property inside and out. They also added a third bathroom, a separate bungalow closer to the water along with a hot tub and stone patio with fire pit. This home is a great place to sit back and relax, but still only 5 miles from the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers. Come visit us soon!
