SPACIOUS is the word that best describes this property. All of the rooms are big, cozy and comfortable. It also features an ADA approved elevator in front. The owner lives in a separate unit in front of the property, so any needs or accommodations can be met quickly.

About Gary Perry

Greetings, my name is Gary Perry, and the owner of Jack’s Cabin. I have owned the property for over 20 years. I have been through 3 floods here, which is why the home has just been elevated 12 feet, completed February of 2017. The cabin is named after my Father who passed away a few years ago. He served in the Navy for 32 years and fought in World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam. He loved the water and spent many hours sitting on the dock enjoying the tranquility you will find here. I reside in a separate unit located in the front of the property. I travel a lot but when I’m here I will be available to answer in person any questions or assist with your needs. The most important request I have of you is to be considerate of my neighbors. The neighborhood as always been quiet, so that all can enjoy the serenity. Please keep that in mind during your activities. Even when I am not present, you may call or text me at 210 422-2525, should you have a question.

Gary Perry purchased this house in 1996

Why Gary Perry chose New Braunfels

Jack's Cabin is located at one of the widest points on Lake Dunlap. The house is underneath tall pecan and cypress trees that provides you shade the majority of the day. That coupled with a south eastern breeze coming across the water keeps you cool when it's almost unbearable everywhere else.

What makes this house unique

Jack's Cabin is located at the end of Satterfield road. There is no traffic, and features a serene setting. It's situated on two lots that provide you with plenty of front and back yard space for games and outdoor activity. There's plenty of room inside the house, and extremely ample space on the outside from decks, to the yards, to the area directly under the house.
