The newly remodeled main house has three spacious bedrooms, all with private TV's and DVD players. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated with warm and inviting color schemes. Sink down into your own plush pillow top mattress along with cozy hand stitched quilts from the local quilters of Gruene. With three full baths your guests will have plenty of time to shower or freshen up before dinner.
You'll enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and the latest cooking accessories to make that perfect gourmet meal. The dining area seats up to 16 and is open to the family room which consists of a large wall of glass windows overlooking the sunroom and the lake. Watch one of your favorite movies from our extensive library come to life on a 50' flat screen plasma TV. Stay connected to family, friends, or your office with WiFi computer access throughout the home.
Just a few steps down from the family room, is the bright and cheery sunroom which is also surrounded in floor to ceiling glass. This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or to use as an additional dining area. Right outside the main house, a private bungalow provides a large, separate sleeping area for those who want to get away from the rest of the crowd or for the older kids who want a place of their own. This area includes three twin over full bunk beds, TV, DVD player, and a refrigerator for your convenience. A private deck gives you the best views of the lake.
The outdoor patio areas of this home are an entertainer's dream with four separate gathering areas. The cook of the family will love the stainless gas grill for cooking their best grilled recipes. In the evening dine alfresco on the adjoining patios under twinkling white lights.
In the summer, use our pier to dock your boats and jet skis or rent a pontoon or ski boat from one of the local rental companies. Swimming, fishing, boating and all water sports are in full swing during this time of year. Your family will love the many activities this lake has to offer. On those chilly autumn nights, watch the bright stars of the hill country while relaxing in the heated Jacuzzi tub or gather round the stone patio and fire pit on the banks of Lake Dunlap to watch the roaring fire as the moonlight dances over the water.
Curious about other adventures in the area? Drive only two miles down the road to explore the many activities New Braunfels has to offer. Leisurely tube or kayak down the Guadalupe or Comal rivers for the day or take the kids to Schlitterbaun, the #1 water park in the world!
If you're searching for a unique shopping experience, look no further than across the river in the Gruene Historic District. This quaint little town along the Guadalupe River is a paradise for those searching for antiques, ironworks, pottery and other fine accessories. Try one of the many popular restaurants Gruene has to offer or relax with a glass of wine at the local wine tasting shop while sampling exclusive Texas wines, champagne and specialty beers.
Later in the evening, enjoy lively entertainment and dancing at Gruene Hall where the likes of George Strait, Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett first started their country western careers. Gruene is also known for hosting various special events and celebrations almost every weekend from March through December. Enjoy 'Gruene Market Days' once a month or catch one of the many music or wine fests scheduled throughout the year.

This is a picture of the Thompson family at one of their favorite restaurants, The Gruene Onion Grill in New Braunfels. Greg & Tana Thompson are the proud owners of BlueMoon Inn on Lake Dunlap. Tana Thompson is a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos and Greg is an A&M alumn. Taylor, the oldest daughter also graduated from Texas State University with her Master's in 2012 in Strategic Marketing. Their son Hunter is a sophomore at Texas State as well.
The Thompson's bought BlueMoon Inn in September of 2008 and totally renovated the property inside and out. They also added a third bathroom, a separate bungalow closer to the water along with a hot tub and stone patio with fire pit. This home is a great place to sit back and relax, but still only 5 miles from the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers.
Come visit us soon!
Tana Thompson purchased this house in 2008
Feels like the country but only 5 miles from the middle of New Braunfels/Gruene and Comal & Guadalupe Rivers
This vacation rental is so Nice! Very clean, plenty of room, fully stocked kitchen and bath. We were a group of 15, five families. We were very pleased with the hospitality given to us by Tana, this VRBO was so comfortable! Lake Dunlap was a nice lake for the boats also. We enjoyed our Memorial Day vacation. I recommend this rental. Thank you Tana!
We had a wonderful family retreat in this spacious, well maintained, beautiful property. Everything we needed was provided. We were always in communication with the owners who were always willing and available to solve our doubts and needs.
All of our family members found a cozy favorite spot in the house. Meal times were fantastic as we gathered all together and had lots of fun. The nights were peaceful and quiet.
Highly recommended for big parties.
Oh, I almost forgot, excellent price for what you get!
There were 6 in our group but the house had beds for many more. The house had 3 bedrooms in the main house and a sort of bunk house out back which we did not use. The 3rd bedroom in the house was apparently converted from some other space, it did not have a closet for guests use. Also the 3rd bathroom was on the back porch area and was very small. We did find the house to be very clean which was nice, and the kitchen nicely supplied. There were some minor maintenance issues but did not cause major problems. We were a bit disappointed that they had not been found prior. ex: dishwasher soap dispenser didn't work properly, several light bulbs inop. The grill on the back deck was a very nice unit though it did not light properly and we had to give it a good cleaning prior to use. Fortunately a wire brush was available.
The area where it was placed was very dark so we had to move it up by the house to see to cook. Also the rental agreement said that 2 bottles of gas would be there and if we needed more we would be reimbursed. Both bottles were nearly empty so we filled one. Still waiting for reimbursement. The hot tub in the back was very nice. We used it several times. It was nice that there were lots of towels available. It would have been nice if the light in the tub worked
A paddle boat was provided but it was unusable. The rudder was broken so steering was not possible and it leaked around the pedal bearings, so unfortunately we did not get any enjoyment from that. Too bad because the river was very nice and it would have been fun.
A good note, we had late flights out of SAT so we asked Tana for a later check out and she was agreeable. We appreciated that a lot. As far as the local shopping we found the near by Creekside area Target to have a good grocery section and other shops around were convenient to get to. The HEB was overwhelming and further away. Overall a nice place but little disappointments detracted from the experience.
There were 8 ladies scheduled to participate in a tennis tournament in New Braunfels. Instead of staying in a hotel, we opted to stay in a rental house. The Blue Moon Inn was absolutely perfect for us. We enjoyed the tennis, but we also looked forward to returning to the house after our matches. The house is wonderfully and tastefully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The bathrooms were stocked with everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious backyard area with the many gathering places. We spent many hours by the river telling our stories and laughing! I would highly recommend this house for a family gathering ....or, like us, a girls trip. Inside and outside, the house is perfect if you are looking for something where you can gather with friends or family. You can enjoy New Braunfels....you can enjoy being by the river.....you can enjoy sitting in the back by the fire pit......LIFE IS GOOD at the Blue Moon Inn.
This home on the water is an awesome place to stay, very clean and comfortable . The owners could not have been nicer, very helpful . Had all of our children and grandchildren there 18 of us and we had a blast !! Were not bothered by anyone , I recommend this very charming house to anyone, You will love it !!! Our family has rented a house in that area for the past 3 summers and this was by far the best time and place to stay !!!!
We had a wonderful time staying on the river to celebrate my mother's 69th birthday. The photos accurately reflect the home. It was more than I expected. There was plenty of room for all of us and it was great having 3 bathrooms. We enjoyed the fire pit each evening and each morning enjoy the view of the river. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything you need. This was a girls trip so we hit all the shopping stops from Gruene to San Marcos. The owner is very friendly. We will definitely come back.
Ten minutes to San Marcos Outlet Malls; Five minutes to antique shopping, dancing and tubing in New Braunfels and Gruene; Five minutes to Schlitterbahn, the #1 water park in the world.
