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!

Didn't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

A little nervous booking and hoped pictures and description matched what we actually rented! It didn't disappoint! It was amazing! I took a prom group of great kids and it was perfect for this large group! Now if we could have rented sunshine, it would have been ideal! It was great and will rent again!

Great place for girls weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely situated, decorated and laid out. Patio and fire pit were great, as was kitchen and view. With 8 of us we would have liked another bathroom.

Nice, clean property

  • 4 of 5

The house was a new and well kept. Good location. Our only complaint was the lack of television stations. There were no kids or sports channels, making for some grumpy kids and adults alike!

Beautiful view on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Pecan Shores Retreat. The home was very clean! Plenty of beds for the 8 of us to sleep and feel like we weren't on top of each other. The kitchen and adjoining large living area were perfect for us to eat meals together and hang out at night. We spent most of the day outside on the dock or playing games on the large lawn area and didn't feel the need to leave the house to sightsee or eat at the many great restaurants close by. It was a great weekend and the perfect house for our son's graduation celebration!

Beautiful Property on the River

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Pecan Shores and the photos don't do it justice. The shared spaces are great for gatherings and as the listing states, the property is "Not too big, not too small - just right." The rooms were clean and the arrival process was easy. Scott was friendly and quick to answer my e-mails. The property is highly recommended. Don't miss out on tubing the Guadalupe River, it was the highlight of our visit!

I have two suggestions; 1. If you plan to use the outdoor grill, make sure you mention it before arrival so the propane tanks can be full. 2. It would be great if the property provided kayaks/paddle boards to use on the river.
