Enjoy the peaceful waters of the Guadalupe on 'Lake Dunlap' in New Braunfels, Texas. Our cozy lake cottage is located 8 minutes from IH35 and 15 minutes from Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Gruene Historical District. It is 20 minutes from the scenic Guadalupe River drive down River Road.

This new (March, 2012) and secluded three bedroom house is positioned on a scenic bluff overlooking Lake Dunlap with stairs that lead down to a cypress tree-covered private dock.

Bring along your swimsuit, boat, jet ski, fishing pole, or just choose to relax on the back porch or the dock. You can also enjoy the serenity on the wooden swing hanging from the oak tree in the back yard.

For a $5.00 fee you can launch your boat at the private boat ramp just down the road and have it tied up at the dock in a few minutes. At present, the property does not have a boat lift.

Your children can play on the rope swing or explore the 1 1/2 acre of woods surrounding the house and search for signs of wildlife around the private bridge on the property.

The three bedroom, two bath house has a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, open dining area, and a living room furnished with leather sofa, chair and futon. A very nice sitting area is available on the back porch.

There are two picnic tables which are located in the back yard. A large, barrel style, charcoal grill is provided in the back yard along with grilling utensils. Charcoal, firewood, and lighter fluid are not furnished. There is also a fire ring in the back yard but firewood is not furnished.

We advertise that our lake cottage will comfortably sleep from two to six people. Six people is the maximum occupancy.

Please review the following when determining sleeping arrangements: The upstairs master bedroom has a queen-sized bed suitable for two adults. The additional upstairs bedroom has a full-sized bed along with a pull-out sofa making the room suitable for four children or two adults with two children. The downstairs bedroom has a full-sized bed accomodating two people. If needed for additional people the living room has a futon that will accomodate one person along with a full-sized sofa.

The downstairs bathroom has a large shower and is equipped with a washer and dryer. The upstairs bathroom has a single whirlpool bathtub.

The lake house has a wheelchair ramp front entrance for easy access into the house. Please note that to access the water you must use the staircase.

If you prefer accommodations on the river instead of the lake, we also have a river house that can be found at vrbo #481107.

The best place we could ask for!!!

Spent Father's Day with our college age boys. Great place! Owners are the best. We are going to cancel our yearly trip to the coast with the boys and try to book this for a week if that tells you anything. Loved it.

Guadalupe Cottage on Lake Dunlap

  • 4 of 5

It is a very nice and clean cottage. Nice porch to sit out on and have morning coffee. Enjoyed our stay except for the dogs next door barking late at night and early in the morning.

Beautiful home and property

  • 4 of 5

Right on the water. Great private dock. Home was clean and nice.

Only downside was the shared chain link fence with the next door neighbors who have 5+ dogs who were always barking and up against the fence. That being said, we sat by the fire in the evenings, and the neighbors were kind enough to take the dogs inside without even asking.

All in all, had a great time and will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay. We definitely extend an invitation for a return visit. We have since spoken with the neighbor. The lake cottage is also our hideaway to escape and relax. All the best!
