FREE NIGHT WHEN YOU BOOK A WEEK!

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.

* SS American Museum -

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.

This house was perfect. They provided everything and we just had to take the food. We had a blast swimming in the lake and laying out on the deck. Loved it!!!

Wonderful, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

My review is exactly the same as all others, especially the review just below from the group of ladies who enjoyed their stay. Add to it the important "little" things: Beds, pillows and sheets/bedding are very comfortable. Plenty of couches and chairs inside and out. Thermostat/temp control was perfect, no issues with the air conditioning. No musty smells in the house. Plenty of towels, pillows and blankets (which is one pet peeve we find at other rentals). Also the neighborhood is very quiet yet close to all sorts of stores and restaurants - you feel you're away from it all - but you're really close to everything! Cannot wait to rent again, loved watching all the boats and jets ski's going past, and taking a dip in the river. Great "staycation" in Texas! Ahhh - relax :)

Perfectly Wonderful Older Ladies Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six >45 year old ladies meet once a year for a vacation weekend. We wanted to go to Schlitterbahn and try tubing when we found this perfectly delightful lake house on Lake Placid in Seguin, TX (both activities about 15 minutes away). The attributes that made me choose this house were the view from the house, spaciousness of the kitchen/den, and sleeping options with two king beds, one queen, and two couches. Plus we were allowed to bring our two smallish dogs. The price was fab!

This house was so comfortable! We always cook two nice meals on our trips and this kitchen had everything we needed and more. All equipment (blender, coffee pot, etc.) was in good shape with plenty of dishes, cups, and utensils for the gang. It was very nice to have a gas grill rather than a charcoal one. One big surprise was having TWO refrigerators. They easily held all our snacks, beverages, and meal fixings. Wow!!

We enjoyed lots of lounging on the back porch with all the chair choices and the lovely view of the lake. All of us enjoyed kayaking around the lake to explore. The house had plenty of floaties and life vests also, in case you wanted to try that. There was a whole closet full of towels for the bathrooms and lake activities. The den area is large and comfortable and we played charades in there. So much fun!

This was the PERFECT house for us. We hope to be back!

Great Stay, will book again

  • 5 of 5

We opted to rent this house on the water this year for vacation and hang out instead of staying in a hotel in a big city going to attractions or events and we were not disappointed. It was very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed swimming, fishing and kayaking. The games and DVDs were nice as well when night came around. The house was clean and very well stocked with staples and the gas grill was nice as we used it twice for hamburgers and pork chops. It was nice to be able to have home cooked meals instead of eating out all the time. My wife and two boys are already talking about renting it again for vacation next year.
