*** In May 2019, the Lake Dunlap dam unexpectedly failed and drained 70-80% of the lake. No homes or properties were affected. Our beautiful home still offers all the amenities it did before, but now instead of a lake, thereâs a smaller river. We are also only 7 minutes from all of the amazing attractions found in New Braunfels and Gruene! ***
Pecan Shores Retreat is a vacation destination on the Lake Dunlap area of the Guadalupe River that you, friends and family, and maybe even Goldilocks can call Just Right. Not too big, not too small - just right.
Not too close to town, not too far from the action - just right. Not too much waterfront, not too much yard, both - just right.
Pecan Shores Retreat is an ideal destination for those who want to boat, ski, jet ski, kayak or just relax by the water's edge in comfortable lodgings just six miles from downtown New Braunfels. Start your vacation by slipping your boat into the cool waters of the Guadalupe in town and drift on down to Pecan Shores. When you arrive, tie up at the private dock and walk through the spacious and shady backyard to the outdoor patio. Here you'll find all the requisite tools for relaxation including a grill and comfortable outdoor patio furniture.
Step inside and you'll find the open kitchen/dining/living room are much to your liking as they offer a full view of the back yard and clear waters beyond. Next, send the kids outside to play while the grown-ups draw straws for upstairs or downstairs bedrooms and flip a coin for indoor or outdoor cooking duty. Upstairs or down, inside or out - everybody wins at Pecan Shores. Outside, you man the grill, watch the kids, and enjoy a beverage. Inside, you enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen and the company of friends who cheer you on in your Iron Chef-inspired culinary creations as they chat with you from the island bar.
Whether you choose to dine inside or out, you'll be able to enjoy the Hill Country sunset over the clear, blue waters of Lake Dunlap. Wind down your evening with a game of cards, a chat under the stars, or a movie for all. After hours, you'll find the bedrooms both comfortable and accommodating. Two bedrooms are located on each floor as well as a full bathroom upstairs and down for your convenience and privacy.
Need a break from boating, skiiing, kayaking, and generally being a river bum? At Pecan Shores you'll complelety forget that you're only minutes from the luxuries of New Braunfels which is known for its many charms such as: sampling the treats at an authentic German bakery, shopping the charming antique shops and boutiques, sipping wine at a local winery, or spending a day at Schlitterbahn!
Want to spend a night on the town? Head into New Braunfels to experience Hill Country inspired cuisine, boot scoot over to Gruene Hall for a good time, spend a night under the stars at a local outdoor concert venue, or take in a movie or play at a local theatre. Finding something to do in town won't be any problem at all, choosing will be the hard part!
