Love the Guadalupe River, but not all the crowds? Serenity and fun await you at the Oar Haus River Cabin! The cabin sits on a private, park-like reserve, on a deep two mile section of the river between Lakes McQueeney and Dunlap. Because the Oar Haus sits between the dams, there are no ski boats or tubers in your backyard. It’s like having the river to yourself! The cabin is surrounded by a ranch and backs up to the river, with another ranch on the opposite bank and only one directly neighboring property. During your stay, there is a high probability that -- outside of fish, birds, squirrels and deer -- you may not encounter another living soul. Peace and Quiet!

EVENTS: The Oar Haus has enough elbow room to host small weddings, family reunions, and group retreats, and beckons friends and family to enjoy time together without all the distractions of the daily grind. Come kick off your shoes and relax. Spend some quality time on the back porch and watch the sunset over the cypress lined Guadalupe River. Bait a hook or pitch some horseshoes, grab a lawn chair and read a book, fire up the BBQ for the day’s fresh catch and enjoy a glass of wine at your private waterfront retreat… this is the place to simply escape and unwind. Call to learn more about our camp ground rental and events scheduling.

The cabin sits up on a hill overlooking the property and the river. Spend your days kayaking, swimming, and fishing out your back door, where your family is sure to create memories that will last a lifetime. After sunset, go warm up next to a cozy fire under the bright stars as the moonlight sparkles on the water. Then come inside and enjoy a comfortable night’s rest. Wake up to birds chirping in the mammoth pecan tree behind the cabin, and watch deer pass by from the sunroom.

The Oar Haus is located between the two historic settlements of New Braunfels and Seguin; and within 40 minutes of Austin and San Antonio. Once you arrive, be prepared to drive down a one mile dirt road that meanders through a canopied hall of trees and ends at a secluded get-a-way. Whether you want to sit on the large deck and watch the wildlife, or go out and enjoy the wild life, this cabin lets you leave the world behind but stay close to the fun. If you’re not familiar with New Braunfels, I’ll sum it up in two words… swimsuits and boots. You’ll find no shortage of water sports, live music, incredible food, and down-home friendly people in this part of the country, and no shortage of opportunities to sit and fish from the banks of our beautiful river. Come see what time off is supposed to feel like.

The cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master includes 1 queen and 1 full bed, with a spacious master bath. The 2nd bedroom has a full bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The cabin is well-appointed with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. There are two dining areas, a sunroom, and a living room with skylights and a cozy fireplace. For your entertainment, we provide: wi-fi internet, cable, 3 grills (gas/coal/smoker), life vests, tubes, inflatables, kayaks, canoes, fishing poles and standup paddleboards – ALL INCLUDED! We hope to see y’all soon, and we hope the Oar Haus will bring as much joy into your lives as it does to ours.

About Shane Carter

We are a retired military family originally from west Texas and Ohio. We've been in New Braunfels since 2005 and love the area. We are runners, paddlers, and play golf. The Oar Haus is a great joy in our lives and we put our hearts into making it a wonderful place to spend time. We live just a few miles away from the cabin, so we're just a phone call away.

Shane Carter purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Shane Carter chose New Braunfels

After spending many summers on the Guadalupe, we picked this spot because it is so quiet and it lets you enjoy the river without the blasting stereos, beer bongs, and drunks. The Oar Haus is just an incredible spot to recharge, reconnect and relax. The solitude and wildlife have such a calming effect.

What makes this cabin unique

Sunsets, wildlife, serenity, and the river... close to town, yet a world away.

Family retreat

  • 5 of 5
The Oar Haus is absolutely the best place to stay in the New Braunfels area. We had a summer family vacation-ages ranging from 7-73 years old and ALL had a terrific time. The owners are attentive and made themselves available before, during and after our stay. The property is close to everything yet very secluded and private. We literally had the river to ourselves and it was quiet and so relaxing. We used and appreciated all the river toys which were in great shape. The lay-out of the house is good with kitchen and living areas in the middle and an awesome sunroom! Sitting out on the deck in the morning and evening was divine! Lots of deer roaming around. It's a little bit of a walk back and forth from house to river dock but overall this was by far one of the best vacation spots ever! Thank you Shane and family for sharing your slice of Texas paradise! We had a wonderful time and would recommend The Oar Haus 100%. Hope to be back next year!

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
The Oar House was a great place to stay. There were seven of us, and we had plenty of room. The house was very nice - like being at your own home and had everything you could think of. The shed outside was filled with all kinds of water toys. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck. The dock by the water was great and big enough for a group! We had a great time!!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
I have a 6 yr old and 2 yr old and I can honestly say they had the time of their lives!! They are already asking to go back! Our stay was perfect! The water is far enough from the house I didn't have to worry about the girls getting too close for comfort. Everything we could possibly need was already there when we arrived. We were just looking for a short getaway from Houston but we'll definitely be visiting again and again!! Thanks again to the owners for sharing your family treasure with us!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I went to the Oar House with a group of teachers for a girls week-end getaway. It was absolutely perfect and wonderful. The house was neat and clean and had everything we needed. The isolated area of the river was great. It was like we had our own private swimming area. The view from the porch was amazing. We saw lots of deer, hawks and in the evening the lightening bugs lit up the grass. We enjoyed using the paddle boards. A new experience for all of us and we weren't very good on them, but we sure laughed at each other trying. Thanks Shane for making great memories for all of us at your paradise on the river. We are already planning our trip back there next summer.

3rd Annual Family Vac

  • 5 of 5
We had our third annual family vacation and this was our favorite place to be so far! We ranged in age from 67 down to 2 years old and there was plenty for ALL of us to enjoy. There were so many thoughtful amenities - books and magazines, toys for toddlers, river toys, bar-b-que equipment, bug spray...wow. We lacked for nothing! The place is so beautiful, secluded, and the fireflies at night were so nostalgic to my husband and me. I highly recommend if you are one of those who like to get away for great family time...or whomever you choose to take to this great hideaway. (It is close to all the activities in New Braunfels and Gruene too, just in case you are the type to need more "action"!)
