Seguin House Rental Photos and Description

Large living/dining, 3 Bedrooms, 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, family reunions 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. We have two kayaks for you to enjoy on the water. Grilling is available on our gas grill.

Absolutely Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I definitely enjoyed our time here. The house is very nice and spacious and has a lovely yard. We felt right at home. Loved the kitchen! We really enjoyed swimming and floating in the water off the dock. Lots of boats and jet skis to watch go by. It's close enough to the Comal and New Brausfels - only about 20 mins. The owner is very friendly and helpful, she was very accommodating! We are already talking about coming back next year - can't recommend this place enough!

This was a great house for my family to stay at. We all enjoyed the dock and water right out our back door. Plenty of room for all to sleep. Nice large kitchen to cook and visit. We had a great time and the owners are very nice and helpful.

Best Lake House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best time at this lake house! There were 5 of us plus 4 dogs and 1 baby. Everyone enjoyed their stay...even the dogs! Everything was there that we needed including some water toys that we had access to. There is even a diving board that we got a lot of use out of. The yard was large enough for us to play games and provided so much shade. We enjoyed it so much that we didn't want to leave. The owners were kind enough to give us a later check out time. We decided to make this our family summer vacation tradition. We can't wait to go back!

Great Lake House Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful setting for a few days away with family. Something for everyone. The boys enjoyed the water activities..floating, kayaking and fishing. The water was a great temperature even in mid July. Really...everything you need is at this lake house. Bring your food, fishing poles and a good book and get ready to relax. Huge, lush back yard right on the water and oh my ..the trees, the biggest pecan trees you have ever seen, and they are everywhere providing great shade and a beautiful setting for a nice stroll through the very quiet neighborhood. You will not be disappointed with your stay at this lake house. Highly recommend. We will be back.
