About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 baths, Sleeps 15, Lake Waterfront, On the Water, New Braunfels

Adorable river cottage with rustic touches. We are a new rental in a cute antique cabin, but we have made several new upgrades with always something new in progress!

This is our fourth year of renting, and each summer we have been completely booked! Be sure to book early to be able to stay at this great property!

The water is yours! We are waterfront, lakefront, a short and easy walk from the house, down to the water and hop in and play!

New paint inside (majority of the house) and out, wood floors, Front deck with patio, back deck with patio, Recently updated kitchen with granite countertops, new cabinets, built in Kitchen Aid refrigerator, Kitchen aid stainless steel range, and stainless steel oven, nice array of dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, bedding and towels, laundry area available for use, Large flat screen tv with DSL cable, wireless high speed internet downstairs and in 1 bedroom upstairs. Great downstairs and upstairs lake views!

We are located on Lake Dunlap, along a private road that has become a popular place for making memories and falling in love with the Hill Country on Lake Dunlap. Lake Dunlap is part of the Guadalupe river that widens and is designated as a lake after it crosses I-35, so boats and jetski's are allowed. It is a constant level lake designed for skiing, lounging and swimming, but no river floats (these are for up river). Quiet, serene, a great place to decompress and relax away from all the crowds, yet you are still within minutes to get to many Hill Country vacation hot spots. Lots of lush green lawn with many 100 foot tall trees. A great place to fish, swim or just relax. We always have water and no can-ban. We are located within 10-15 minutes of Schlitterbahn, the Comal River, the Guadalupe River and Gruene Hall. A great place for families, reunions, or gatherings. There is a boat launching ramp on the lake so you can bring your jet ski's or boat and tie up on our dock. Boat slips may or may not be available during your stay but there will at least be availability for tie offs.

Please ask any questions you may have! We are happy to help.

Please inform us of the ages of your entire party when booking. Thank you!

We enjoyed everything about this beautiful home. 06/28/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


The Lake Dunlap house was the perfect location for a laid back retreat to celebrate my birthday. My best bear friends (4 of us) had a wonderful time lounging in the sunshine on the boat dock. Having breakfast on the back patio overlooking the serene, morning lakefront was the perfect way to start the day. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax while catching up with friends and we all slept comfortably in our own rooms.

The proximity to Whitewater Amphitheater was perfect. We were able to Uber to and from the concert easily and several tubing spots were accessible near by. I’d recommend the Walker’s home for your next gathering of bear friends or family, big or small. They have plenty of comfortable beds and living areas inside and out for the group to hang out together or find peace and quiet in their own corner of the property. Next time we go I hope we have a chance to sit under the stars and listen to the lake lapping at the shore by the fire pit!

Owner info

About the owner: Homeowners on Lake Dunlap with neighboring property since 2000. We have treasured our home there and the memories made so much. Due to the proximity of homes being close together in this former fishing camp (love the history here!), we purchased this home which is more space than we need at times, so it makes for an ideal location to rent to vacationers. It is a home and memories for us, and not just an investment, so sharing this fun home with others has become quite an enjoyment for us. These are the first rental opportunities for this too cute home. Come enjoy the intoxicating river as we have and fall in love!

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels, TX, USA:
This adorable cabin is quite picturesque. The setting of the river and homes around the area are truly like being in the country. Wake up to hearing birds chirp and be prepared to see lots of stars in the sky that you may not be able to see at home in the city! Keep in mind that lake and country living bring wildlife as we are ON the river. You will see lizards and bugs, as well as other wildlife that may include hawks, ducks, egrets, bats, raccoons, turtles, snakes, etc. But the country air and lake views and breezes are something you can't get out of your mind. Don't miss taking in a river sunset and the calm that comes over the river. It is worth planning your day and night around no doubt!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Camp Willow cottages are located on Lake Dunlap, as an old fishing camp of cabins has now become a place for making memories and falling in love with the Hill Country on Lake Dunlap. Lake Dunlap is part of the Guadalupe river that widens and is designated as a lake after it crosses I-35, so boats and jetski's are allowed. It is a constant level lake designed for skiing, lounging and swimming, but no river floats (these are for up river). Quiet, serene, a great place to decompress and relax away from all the crowds. Lots of lush green lawn with many 100 foot tall trees. A great place to fish, swim or just relax. We always have water and no can-ban. We are located within 5-10 minutes of Schlitterbahn, the Comal River, the Guadalupe River and Gruene Hall. A great place for families, reunions, or small rustic weddings. There is a boat launching ramp on the lake so you can bring your jet ski's or boat.
