3 ACRE GUADALUPE RIVERFRONT - VERY PRIVATE

New Braunfels Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 8

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 3 acre, 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!

The Oar Haus 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.

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, life vests, tubes, inflatables, kayaks, canoes, and fishing poles. 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.

We are a retired Air Force 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

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.

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

Valentine's Getaway with the Family

We had a wonderful time at the Oar Haus this past weekend. We had two small children with us (ages 3 and 4) and the play ground, toys, and ample outdoor space was awesome for them - We were also able to keep them up close to the house without issue - the river is far enough away we didn't feel unsafe. We loved the wildlife, the solitude, and the deck the best. We came with two families and found the layout of the house great. The master is on one side with two beds/large room and a bath, then the other side of the house has two more bedrooms and a bath. We went to lunch in Gruene but otherwise cooked all our meals in the house. We will recommend this place to our family and friends and hope to visit again this sumer.

The owner went out of his way to ensure our trip was a good one and checked in with us throughout our stay. This place exceeded our expectations! Well appointed and had everything you need for a more than pleasant stay (the kitchen was well-stocked, firewood for the fireplace, toiletries in the bathroom, even a guitar for sitting outside and playing on the porch)!! All in all we had a great weekend :)

Relaxing Perfection

The Oar Haus was the absolute perfect place to take my friend for her 40th birthday getaway! I wanted a relaxing and peaceful retreat to help take her mind off of the hustle and bustle of teaching and being a wife and mother! This exceeded my expectations! We did nothing but relaxed. We ventured out a couple of times like eating at Gruene Door for her birthday dinner (which was delicious) but since she just loved being at the river so much we made that our total place of refuge! It was a great girls weekend and I would recommend The Oar Haus to anyone seeking a quiet, beautiful and relaxing getaway! I will be returning soon with my family and I have told so many to do the same!

Fantastic Get-A-Way

This is the best kept secret in New Braunfels. We had a great time over Christmas with my daughter's new husband, his parents, my husband and I and our grand daughter of 21. I can't say enough about the owner's making our visit a fantastic one. He even put up a Christmas tree.

We loved sitting out on the deck and watching the deer and the turkeys and all the wildlife wander around. The river is far enough away for the little kiddos if you have some and close enough the go have a great time in.

We personally enjoyed the spaciousnesss, the newly decorated bedrooms and being able to cook all our own meals there. We lacked for nothing. The owner even called several times to make sure we were all ok...........I definitely am going back again as soon as I can. Thanks Shane for all you did........Nancy Boultinghouse
Owner's Response: So glad you guys enjoyed it Nancy. Stop by our facebook page and check out the updates we make this summer. Hope to see you next year!

Not only was this place perfect for our family, but the owners were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Our family was spread out over Texas for Christmas and New Braunfels was a good halfway point for everyone. This house was very spacious and great for our group which ranged in ages from 1yr to 93 yrs! The land the house sits on is beautiful as well. We will definitely look this place up the next time we need to rent a house in the area!

Owner's Response: What a great story! So glad everything worked out for all of you. We will probably always remember your baby's birth date! It was great to have you.
