Of course just sitting on the deck and relaxing is always a favorite activity. Here in New Braunfels you will never run out of things to do or places to eat.

The Oppelt Lake Haus is perfect for all your vacation needs, with a water view from almost every room in the house, private dock for swimming, fishing or parking your jet ski/boat. Spend the evening outside in the breeze enjoying a BBQ or just sit back and unwind at the water's edge.

About Russell Oppelt

greeting

Russell Oppelt purchased this house in 2006

Why Russell Oppelt chose Texas Hill Country

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.

Das Oppelt Haus was a beautiful, relaxing place to spend a long family weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took our adult children and two young granddaughters to New Braunfels for a long family weekend. The Oppelt house was beautiful and spacious, with fantastic views of the lake. Our little girls especially liked the beautiful large back yard. We relaxed on the patio and out on the pier. Everyone was comfortable and the set up of the house was perfect for putting the girls to bed and having adult time. It was also close to good restaurants and attractions when we wanted to go out. Russell was helpful and always quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed our weekend and will go back!

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Das Oppelt house was perfectly situated on a quiet stretch of Lake Dunlap with plenty of room, beautiful trees and a private dock for hanging out, and not far from the center of New Braunfels.

I rented this property for a girl's weekend for Memorial Day. It's such a beautiful property right in a secluded area on the river! Perfect for 8 girls to sleep comfortably and we had such a blast! I definitely highly recommend this place! I will book again in the future!
