Swimming, fishing, boating and all water sports are in full swing during this time of year. Your family will love the many activities this lake has to offer. On those chilly autumn nights, watch the bright stars of the hill country while relaxing in the heated Jacuzzi tub or gather round the stone patio and fire pit on the banks of Lake Dunlap to watch the roaring fire as the moonlight dances over the water.

This is a picture of the Thompson family at one of their favorite restaurants, The Gruene Onion Grill in New Braunfels. Greg & Tana Thompson are the proud owners of BlueMoon Inn on Lake Dunlap. Tana Thompson is a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos and Greg is an A&M alumn. Taylor, the oldest daughter also graduated from Texas State University with her Master's in 2012 in Strategic Marketing. Their son Hunter is a sophomore at Texas State as well.
The Thompson's bought BlueMoon Inn in September of 2008 and totally renovated the property inside and out. They also added a third bathroom, a separate bungalow closer to the water along with a hot tub and stone patio with fire pit. This home is a great place to sit back and relax, but still only 5 miles from the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers.
Come visit us soon!
Tana Thompson purchased this house in 2008
Feels like the country but only 5 miles from the middle of New Braunfels/Gruene and Comal & Guadalupe Rivers
This property easily accommodated our party of 13 (3 families - 6 adults and 7 children) with room to spare! The kids loved the bunk room and hot tub. The view of the lake is just beautiful and calming. House was well equipped, we cooked most meals there. Our adventures included schlitterbahn, natural wildlife park and sea world and felt it was a great place to come back to and relax. Tana was very responsive. We wanted to stay longer!!! Great stay!!
3 Moms and six kids had a GREAT time here! Great people to work with, reasonable price, clean and up to date. What a place!
We had 15 in our party (3 families). The sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly for our group (6 adults + 9 children). Everyone had their own bed and we had plenty of space when it came time for dinner time. The house was spotless upon our arrival and everything was fresh and updated. We cooked every meal in the well equipped kitchen. We hit Schlitterbahn one day and spent the other 3 days boating on the lake. The dock is one of the smallest on the lake but offered us plenty of space to tie up our boat as well as utilize the canoe and kayaks they have on property. Tana was available to attend to a minor issue with the washing machine and had it fixed and back in action shortly. Overall, I would change nothing. The property and lake delivered in every way possible!
This vacation rental is perfect for 2+ families! We along with another family booked a 4 night stay over spring break. The home accommodated 4 adults and 5 children easily with the ability to sleep many more. The décor was fun and comfortable and the home was very clean.The kitchen was well stocked with cooking essentials and having a HEB close by was nice. The bunk room in the main house was perfect for the 5 kiddos, they enjoyed having their own space and TV. We took advantage of the grill, hot tub, fishing pier, fire pit, and the kayaks. The water was too cold for us adults but the kids didn't mind. I would love to go back in the summer to take full advantage of the beautiful lake. I can highly recommend this rental and would rent again in the future without hesitation.
The house is really roomy, very nice and was equipped with everything that we needed. Loved the fire pit we used it every night it was great place for all the family to spend time together. We also enjoyed the Jacuzzi it was very relaxing. The location was very close to town made it very convenient for shopping and riding the Comal. We rented Jet Skis the house is on the river lake so it was perfect location we all had a blast!
Thank you Tana for all your help and allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home!
We had a really good time... 2 large families, and there was more than enough room. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were big, it was nice having washer/dryer, and the kids loved playing and sleeping out in the back house. Also, the wifi internet worked well, so everyone was happy about that. We really enjoyed sitting around the fire pit roasting marshmallows, and the hot tub was nice. The only inconvenience was that it advertised a gas grill, and it didn't have one. They did have a charcoal grill/smoker, so we had to go buy charcoal and it took longer to cook. But it was a fun week, and we would stay there again... Thanks Tana!
Ten minutes to San Marcos Outlet Malls; Five minutes to antique shopping, dancing and tubing in New Braunfels and Gruene; Five minutes to Schlitterbahn, the #1 water park in the world.
