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.

It is a great place to get away for peace and quiet! There was enough room for 6 adults.

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and very inviting. There were 6 of us, and we all never felt cramped in the house. There is plenty of room. Everything we needed to cook was made available to us. The lake water was refreshing and fun to be in. It is a place I will definitely consider to stay in again!

Very cute place

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults staying for the weekend and the place was perfect. It is clean and nicely decorated. Everything you could possibly need is there. Lake Dunlap is not a busy lake and we rented a pontoon boat from Bruno's who delivered the boat to us. There is a dock at the lake house that was perfect for boat access. It was a perfect weekend! The owners are very friendly and very responsive too

Overall, the house was a hit. I enjoyed how it felt secluded and the access to the river was wonderful. The downstairs area was a good size and laid out well to accommodate 6 of us cooking, eating, and hanging out. We also enjoyed the grill and fire pit in the backyard.
