PECAN SHORES RETREAT - a SkyRun Texas Property

Pecan Shores Retreat is a vacation destination on the Lake Dunlap area of the Guadalupe River that you, friends and family, and maybe even Goldilocks can call Just Right. Not too big, not too small - just right.

Not too close to town, not too far from the action - just right. Not too much waterfront, not too much yard, both - just right.

Pecan Shores Retreat is an ideal destination for those who want to boat, ski, jet ski, kayak or just relax by the water's edge in comfortable lodgings just six miles from downtown New Braunfels. Start your vacation by slipping your boat into the cool waters of the Guadalupe in town and drift on down to Pecan Shores. When you arrive, tie up at the private dock and walk through the spacious and shady backyard to the outdoor patio. Here you'll find all the requisite tools for relaxation including a grill and comfortable outdoor patio furniture.

Step inside and you'll find the open kitchen/dining/living room are much to your liking as they offer a full view of the back yard and clear waters beyond. Next, send the kids outside to play while the grown-ups draw straws for upstairs or downstairs bedrooms and flip a coin for indoor or outdoor cooking duty. Upstairs or down, inside or out - everybody wins at Pecan Shores. Outside, you man the grill, watch the kids, and enjoy a beverage. Inside, you enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen and the company of friends who cheer you on in your Iron Chef-inspired culinary creations as they chat with you from the island bar.

Whether you choose to dine inside or out, you'll be able to enjoy the Hill Country sunset over the clear, blue waters of Lake Dunlap. Wind down your evening with a game of cards, a chat under the stars, or a movie for all. After hours, you'll find the bedrooms both comfortable and accommodating. Two bedrooms are located on each floor as well as a full bathroom upstairs and down for your convenience and privacy.

Need a break from boating, skiiing, kayaking, and generally being a river bum? At Pecan Shores you'll complelety forget that you're only minutes from the luxuries of New Braunfels which is known for its many charms such as: sampling the treats at an authentic German bakery, shopping the charming antique shops and boutiques, sipping wine at a local winery, or spending a day at Schlitterbahn!

Want to spend a night on the town? Head into New Braunfels to experience Hill Country inspired cuisine, boot scoot over to Gruene Hall for a good time, spend a night under the stars at a local outdoor concert venue, or take in a movie or play at a local theatre. Finding something to do in town won't be any problem at all, choosing will be the hard part!

Very Pleasant Stay in New Braunfels

  • 5 of 5

We selected New Braunfels so our family could visit San Antonio and Austin. This property was perfectly situated to be close to the highways, to New Braunfels, and also the lake. The house itself is well kept and relatively new. The photos on the website are accurate. We were two families--at total of six and were very comfortable. The backyard fire pit is very nice and the lawn back there is huge. Kitchen and dining room is large and very well stocked. Oddly, the one thing missing was a wine bottle opener. Overall, we had a great stay. Thanks!

Family get together

  • 3 of 5

The trees have not been treated for webworms. The worms are everywhere. You could not sit outside without them crawling on you or falling on you from the trees. We called about the boat lift because it did not work and was told that they would call me right back. I have not had a return call. The refrigerator was leaking. There was no dishwashing soap so we were unable to run the dishwasher. Other than these things we loved it! The house is very nice.

The webworms should be addressed. Trees look bad.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. The webworms can be pesky in early fall but have since received their regular treatment. As mentioned, guests are welcome to use the boat dock, but the lift isn’t available or ever advertised as an amenity. We hope you get to visit New Braunfels again soon!

The place was amazing!! Enough room to sleep everyone comfortably, perfect location, quiet and peaceful. We all had a great time and the house made it feel like a home away from home. Highly recommend it!

Perfect Family Vacation House

We were 100% satisfied with our stay at Pecan Shores. Beautiful home, beautiful property, and perfect place for a family gathering. It's close to Schlitterbahn which is what brought our family to New Braunfels. No complaints at all...highly recommend.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us! We had a small school reunion one evening and we were allowed to get permission to park some extra cars. The owner stopped by with toilet paper because the people before us had said we were nearly out! She was so nice and asked if there was anything else we needed. The house has both a charcoal and a gas grill so you are covered with which ever way of cooking out you prefer! There are two Patio's one for each. You are close enough to the water to walk down to it and they even had a boat slip if you have a boat and want to park it at the house. We cooked two meals there and we found Everything we needed for all our cooking needs. Even assorted seasonings. We will try to get this same house next year! We have been doing this get together for 5 yrs and this is the best place we have stayed in New Braunfels yet!
