New Braunfels House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Welcome to our lovely lakefront home on Lake Placid - close to New Braunfels, McQueeney, Seguin, and San Antonio. We have owned this home for a number of years, and decided to make it available for others to enjoy. Great for 'Winter Texans,' family vacations, or extra room for the holidays. Our lake is the third in a chain of three lakes on the Guadalupe River - Lakes Dunlap and McQueeney are just upstream. Being a little further away makes for, well, a more Placid experience. Bring along your fishing poles, or choose to relax on the beautiful sun deck that sits 12 feet over the water. You will stay in a spacious, fully-furnished home-away-from-home, sure to include everything you need to relax.

You are near everything you need to make your vacation one to remember. We have the largest water park in the USA, Schlitterbahn, and the oldest operating dance hall in Texas, Gruene Hall. You can tube or raft the Guadalupe river, or tube the Comal River. If shopping interests you, then you will want to visit one of the largest outlet malls in the U.S. in nearby San Marcos. Take in the historic sites of the Alamo in San Antonio, or enjoy Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World - only a short 45-minute drive away. Of course, just sitting on the deck and relaxing is always a favorite activity. You will never run out of things to do.

Our home features include: Three bedrooms, two with king-size beds and one with a queen-size bed. Two full-length sofas can can serve as additional sleeping areas. There are two full baths, full-size washer and dryer, and a two story dock. The home has water views from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. A large covered porch has a table and chairs, and the waterfront is but 70 feet from the back door. There is ample outdoor seating shaded by tall pecan trees to enjoy the view and a huge back yard to enjoy outdoor games, or relaxation. Grilling is available on our gas grill.

Nearby attractions include:

* Fiesta Texas - 45 miles

* Sea World - 47 miles

* San Antonio River Walk - 39 miles

* San Antonio International Airport - 37 miles

* The Alamo - 38 miles

* Wurstfest in New Braunfels - 17 miles

Great time on the water......

  • 4 of 5
My wife, daughter, daughter's friend and I spent 3 days here and will definitely recommend this vacation home to friends and family. The water is only about 20 yards from the patio, so you can keep an eye on the kids swimming. Rooms were comfortable and nicely furnished. 3 tv's, washer/dryer, BBQ on the patio. Most, of all the comforts of home. The commute to New Braunfels is quick with very little traffic. We had a great time and will definitely come back again. Thanks again to the owner! We appreciate everything you did to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our month long stay on Lake Placid! We are a retired couple visiting family in the San Antonio area. The pictures and description of the property are totally in line with what we found upon arrival. The home was clean and very comfortable, with three bedrooms and a large functional kitchen. Sandra was a pleasure to work with. She was friendly and quite helpful; even offering several sightseeing ideas.
There is a Walmart or an HEB (grocery store) about 7 miles away for all your needs and a quaint little ice cream shop in the city of Seguin. The Grist Mill Restaurant in the town of Gruene is a must. The San Marcos shopping outlets are fabulous and the San Antonio Riverwalk is only 35 minutes from the house.
We would definitely rent this home again! It was a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere and a fun place to host family and friends.

Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5
It was just my husband and myself so more room than needed. The home was very well stocked with appliances, dishes, utensils, linens, etc. Just bring your food. The home was very clean and I loved the large windows in the kitchen overlooking the backyard and lake. The three days we were there it was very quiet...not much activity on the lake. We brought our own tubes and tied up to the dock and just floated one day. We just wanted a quiet place to getaway for a few days and this worked out quite well. We would stay again.

I would definitely recommend

  • 4 of 5
My family had a blast staying here. The home is relatively small, so larger families/groups might have the need for something a little bigger. It was more than enough for us, however. Assuming the weather is okay, most people will probably spend a ton of their time outdoors anyway. It is a beautiful lake. There are a ton of floaties, noodles, etc, that are available for renters to use. The dock is great for swimming off of. The backyard is pretty big, and also well kept. Plenty big enough to play any number of outdoor games.

There is a carnival/amusement park called ZDT's in town, less than 10 minutes from the house. I would certainly recommend a visit there to anyone with kids. It is not a particularly large park, but it does have a wide range of activities it offers, including a few water based rides. The highlight, for us anyway, was the dual level go kart track.

The living room and kitchen face the water, and there are plenty of windows. So it makes for a very lovely view. However, there are no curtains on any of them. Privacy lovers might find this a little disconcerting, as well as the fact that there is a security monitor that faces these windows (no idea if it is actually active). We generally paid it no mind, and it didn't affect our stay.

It might be a good idea to ask Sandra where the nearest grocery store is. A town the size of Seguin surely has a few, but I never noticed a single one.

Winter Texan

  • 5 of 5
Arrived in March and left in May. Beautiful to watch the landscape go from no leaves to full leaves and lush green grass. The house was as advertised with great lake views and plenty of privacy. The floorplan of this house allows everyone to participate in conversations over meals or just relaxing. Very open and the new flatscreen TV can be seen throughout the first floor. Once the temperatures warmed up, the weekends were great to watch the water sport activity on the lake. Great area to take walks in the morning with great paved roads throughout the subdivision. Lots to offer in the local area, we enjoyed NCAA Regional basketball playoffs in Austin and the Valero Texas Open PGA event in San Antonio.
Our main focus was golf and we enjoyed many different courses within a 40 mile radius, all at reasonable prices. Landlords responded to any requests we had during our stay. Hard to leave and go back north.

Perfect for our Thanksgiving get-together!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Lake Placid home during the Thanksgiving holidays. The big kitchen had lots of cabinet space making it the perfect place to prepare our big meal. Big kitchen window looked out on the lake (I enjoyed that) and lots of lighting made the kitchen very cheery. There were plenty of supplies so we didn't have to worry about running out of paper towels, trash bags, food wrap, etc. The beds and bedrooms were comfortable and again, there was great lighting beside the beds so relaxing in bed with a book was possible. Family room had big screen TV and lots of comfortable seating for watching the football games. I'm using the word "comfortable" a lot because that is the word that best describes the entire house. Property was clean and well-maintained. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and family for renting.
