SPACIOUS is the word that best describes this property. All of the rooms are big, cozy and comfortable. It also features an ADA approved elevator in front. The owner lives in a separate unit in front of the property, so any needs or accommodations can be met quickly.

Pots, pans, utensils and coffee maker are all provided. The 80 inch LED Flat Screen TV in the living room is HUGE! The Master Bedroom is spacious and accommodating with your own TV, and a private double vanity bathroom. It even has its own private balcony overlooking beautiful Lake Dunlap.

But with enough advance notice, we can make it happen! Please make reservation for the boat tour PRIOR to arriving.

I realize that when you are looking for a vacation property for family or friends, value for your dollar is a primary objective. Please review the experiences that previous guests have had, and you will see that Jack's Cabin is the number one value for your dollar. HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!!!

About Gary Perry

Greetings, my name is Gary Perry, and the owner of Jack’s Cabin. I have owned the property for over 20 years. I have been through 3 floods here, which is why the home has just been elevated 12 feet, completed February of 2017. The cabin is named after my Father who passed away a few years ago. He served in the Navy for 32 years and fought in World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam. He loved the water and spent many hours sitting on the dock enjoying the tranquility you will find here. I reside in a separate unit located in the front of the property. I travel a lot but when I’m here I will be available to answer in person any questions or assist with your needs. The most important request I have of you is to be considerate of my neighbors. The neighborhood as always been quiet, so that all can enjoy the serenity. Please keep that in mind during your activities. Even when I am not present, you may call or text me at 210 422-2525, should you have a question.

Gary Perry purchased this house in 1996

Why Gary Perry chose New Braunfels

Jack's Cabin is located at one of the widest points on Lake Dunlap. The house is underneath tall pecan and cypress trees that provides you shade the majority of the day. That coupled with a south eastern breeze coming across the water keeps you cool when it's almost unbearable everywhere else.

What makes this house unique

Jack's Cabin is located at the end of Satterfield road. There is no traffic, and features a serene setting. It's situated on two lots that provide you with plenty of front and back yard space for games and outdoor activity. There's plenty of room inside the house, and extremely ample space on the outside from decks, to the yards, to the area directly under the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 2 nights on the property during Spring Break. The owner lives next to the rental property and did an excellent job of making our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is extremely well maintained, has a huge very well stocked kitchen, and is loaded with amenities, including a giant TV, internet, cable, books, bbq pits, etc. It's perfect for entertaining friends and family and the balconies are an awesome gathering place. Although there are stairs, there's a very handy small elevator for those that need help getting up and down the house. The grounds are very nice with several sitting areas. It was too cold to swim, but I can see how this place and the water access would be awesome during the summer. Regardless of the weather, we kept very entertained with the uniqueness of the house, the fire pits, and the relaxing atmosphere. Gary was super helpful and accommodated several of our requests, including a very pleasant boat ride on his pontoon. This is a beautiful place to spend time with family and friends.

Beautiful Property and wonderful home for the weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better waterfront home for our gathering, we had 9 adults all stay here for the weekend, there was plenty of room, seating, beds etc. The owner was friendly and accessible he was not there during our stay but was quick to respond whenever we had questions about anything. Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone looking!
