About the property

Large living/dining, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Welcome to the Getaway on Lake Placid - 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 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 backyard to enjoy outdoor games, or relaxation. We have two kayaks for you to enjoy the water. Grilling is available on our gas grill.

Nearby attractions include:

* Schlitterbahn Water Park

* Wurstfest (New Braunfels)

* Fiesta Texas (San Antonio)

* Sea World (San Antonio)

* San Antonio River Walk

* The Pearl Historic District (San Antonio)

* The Alamo

* Floating the San Marcos River

* Tubing and rafting on the Guadalupe River and Comal River

R&R Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we've stayed at this wonderful home. It is so cozy and comfortable. Plenty of room throughout the home and a very peaceful backyard with an amazing water view. The owners are very easy to work with and all of the instructions regarding the rental are super easy to follow. We are planning next years trip already!

Clean, well stocked, close to service needs.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay, and with the exception of a too soft sofa and chair, everything else was pleasant. The neighborhood residences were friendly, the area quiet, and the river at the back yard. Seguin is two miles away (important for any supplies) which also has historical and other tourist attractions. The month moved too fast, and with adjustments to sofa and chair, we are ready to return.

Great Texas Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we rented this lovely home. When we walked thru the door we were welcomed with a clean, fresh scent and the sparkle of the sun on the river out back! The listing is accurate and the owner, Sandra, is more than helpful and very easy to work with.

The city of Seguin is less than a twenty minute ride from the house, where you will find Walmart, HEB and a great little cupcake place called Sweet Treats. Stop in at the Park Plaza Hotel and order their filet or try the Power Plant Grill for a burger and a bit of history!

San Antonio, New Braunfels, Boerne and Fredericksburg are all within driving distance and each city has its own special charm. We would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation and look forward to our next stay at the Getaway!

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to spend over a month at this awesome property, and we were not ready to leave! The home is located on a large, wooded, peaceful lot on such a beautiful lake. It was well furnished with every possible thing we would need on the inside as well as everything we would need to enjoy the outdoors. The home was clean, organized and well cared for. You truly only need to bring yourself and your groceries. The owner was quick to respond to every question and very helpful with all checkin/checkout information as well as how to handle specifics such as trash & recycling. We enjoyed our stay so much and hope to be able to visit this wonderful getaway again very soon!
