FAQ * The dock, water access, patio are private and only for use of our cottage, so no public or shared access with other groups to hassle with. Only your group for peace and quiet!
FAQ * This is not a "float trip area" where river outfitters will put you in the water or pick you up. Those areas are a short drive about 15 minutes away from us, making it a great location to still have lake access, be close to tube areas, and still you are still able to escape the crowds at the end of the day. However, you are still able to kayak or canoe (if you have one to bring) or you can tube/float around swim or around the dock at the property.
See below for more faq!
We are located on Lake Dunlap, along a private road that has become a popular place for making memories and falling in love with the Hill Country on Lake Dunlap. Lake Dunlap is part of the Guadalupe river that widens and is designated as a lake after it crosses I-35, so boats and jetski's are allowed. It is a constant level lake designed for skiing, lounging and swimming, but no river floats (these are for up river). Quiet, serene, a great place to decompress and relax away from all the crowds, yet you are still within minutes to get to many Hill Country vacation hot spots. Lots of lush green lawn with many 100 foot tall trees. A great place to fish, swim or just relax. We are located within 10-15 minutes of Schlitterbahn, the Comal River, the Guadalupe River and Gruene Hall. There is a boat launching ramp on the lake so you can bring your jet ski's or boat and tie up on our dock during your stay. Lake Dunlap is great for water skiing, wake boarding, jet skiing, fishing or just relaxing.
We are less than 15 minutes away from many attractions in the area:
Downtown Plaza, Wurstfest Grounds, home of the famous annual German festival and salute to sausage and beer.
Schlitterbahn Waterpark, 65 acres of water slides and fun, Prince Solms Tube Chute, and Historic Gruene with rustic restaurants and shops. Catch some live Country music is played by famous and not so famous musicians in the Oldest Dance Hall in Texas! There are many outfitters serving both the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers for kayaking, tubing or rafting adventures.
Landa Park offers 18 holes of Golf, Comal Springs, the Spring fed swimming pool and Olympic pool, and fun mini train for the little ones!
Also, we are only 15-30 minutes from the San Marcos Outlet Malls, Texas Hill Country Trail, Canyon Lake, San Antonio River Walk, Wimberley, wineries, etc. The Austin Airport is less than one hour north on IH-35 and the San Antonio Airport is 30 minutes south on IH-35.
