Great vacation!

My husband and I stayed here with our one year old and my sisters family over the 4th of July. It was fantastic. We absolutely loved the house and being so close to the water. The dock was the perfect place to watch all the fireworks from all directions. We cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for all 3 days we were there. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed.
My only suggestion is to bring plenty of wasp spray. After we took care of that we enjoyed the charcoal grill out back. It really is a great vacation home.
The home owner Russell was so easy to work with and very nice.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location lots of fun

The house was perfect. very good location.everything was clean and better than i expected for a lake house. we spent most of our time on the lake boating or floating in the lake on tubes. There was ample room for a few boats to be docked. Fishing in the early morning off of the dock proved to be a rewarding. Although I was fishing for Large mouth Bass I ended up catching a 4 lb. Blue Channel Catfish off of the front of the dock. The house is excellent for Family getaways and accommodated everyone comfortably.

We rented this house over Memorial Day weekend. The house is very clean and very nicely decorated. It was big enough to accommodate my entire family. We slept 10 adults very comfortably. it is right on the river and very close to everything. I would definitely stay here again.

Love It!

This place was Amazing! I came on vacation with my husband,5 children(ranging in age from 12 to 3),and 3 close friends. After having a bad vacation experiance to South Padre,I was a little scared coming to the Oplt Haus in New Braunfels,but as soon as we arrived the house and view were amazing! In side the house was even better. It looked alot nicer then the pictures and was very clean! The lake house was very well stocked. The kitchen also had evertything u needed to make a family dinner. The bbq pit came in handy,because my husband loves to bbq. We visited Schlitterbahn(it was a very close drive) and had a blast! We also took a drive to San Antonio( witch is also a short drive). The house was right in the middle of everything! But just spending time at the house was my favorit.We all enjoyed swimming in the lake and us adults drinking a glass of wine enjoying the view. The owner was nice and easy to work with. I am defintly renting here again on our next vacation to New Braunfels!

From the Owner

I had visited the New Braunfels/Lake Dunlap area since I attended college at Southwest. Later, family moved to New Braunfels and I’ve spent many summers and weekends visiting the area. And now my kids are enjoying the same things I’ve enjoyed for so many years. The New Braunfels area has so much to offer – Schlitterbahn, quaint shopping, small town atmosphere, festivals, close proximity to San Antonio. It’s a perfect place to go and enjoy living. I had been looking on and off for a few years for a place on the lake, and when I found this one, I jumped at the chance. I knew it would be a place I could enjoy for years to come, not only as an adult, but as a parent.
