Internet Lakefront (more...)

A beautiful spot perched under the trees, on the banks of the Guadalupe River. A brand new tiny home offering the comforts of home w/designer furnishing/accents. Enjoy 50' of riverfront while reconnecting w/the great outdoors w/fire pit, a canopy of trees, and a beautiful 2-level dock.  Great fishing. Sleeps 4.

PLEASE NOTE: On March 27, 2023, Meadow Lake (aka Lake Nolte) will be lowered for at least 2 years for dam repairs. The waterway will be closed to all water access until April 2. We don't know what the water or riverbed will be like initially, and we estimate a "drying out" period for about at least 4-6 weeks where it may be muddy and difficult to access the water. We already have stairs into the water, so they should extend into what will be our riverbed. If not, we will extend the staircase. Water levels should be high enough to swim, wade, fish, and even kayak if the water doesn't flow too quickly. We'll post update photos of the waterfront in the beginning of April for you to see what it's like. Keep in mind that our cancellation policy allows for a full refund up to 5 days prior to your arrival, to give you time to determine if it meets your expectations.

This is a tiny home, so the water heater is also tiny. This isn't the place for long indoor showers, and the tank needs time to refill between showers.

The riverfront decks on either side of us extend to the property lines. While our house/porch and firepit/yard feel private, our riverfront is a good place to make friends with neighbors.

In general, this is a very quiet spot to relax and recharge. On occasional summer weekends, the lake has a more "festive" vibe, with boats, music, and guests at nearby rentals.

If Lake Nolte Retreat is booked on your preferred dates, please check out our other properties: Meadow Lake Retreat (2 tiny homes on the adjacent lot) and Reiley Retreat (2 units of a duplex on the Guadalupe River in Seguin).

We live locally and are only a phone call away if you need anything. We also have local maintenance and housekeeping available for needs that may arise during your stay with us.

We love this place because it's quiet, near the end of a dead end country road with cows and lots of stars. But it's still super convenient (5 minutes) to many things like Walmart and HEB.

Right off I-10 and very centrally located to:
- essentials like HEB, Walmart, Starbucks, restaurants, movie theater (<6 miles)
- Gruene/New Braunfels/Schlitterbahn (20 miles)
- San Marcos outlet malls (25 miles)
- San Antonio (~40 miles)
- Austin (~50 miles)

You'll likely need a car to get around. HEB will deliver to your doorstep via Shipt. Please check on Uber/DoorDash as those services seem to be intermittent here.

Reservations >2 weeks may require an additional cleaning fee.

NO smoking. Smoking of any kind (including tobacco, marijuana, e-cigarettes, vape pens, and hookahs) is prohibited at this property, inside and out.

NO pets. 

NO large parties or gatherings allowed. We have neighbors with full-time residence nearby who will report back with excessive noise or groups that exceed the home limit. Parking limited to 2 vehicles.

Cancellation Policy: Ninety-seven percent (97.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 14 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. Fifty percent (50.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 7 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 7 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.

My husband and I ran a business in Austin for over 10 years and couldn't leave for more than a long weekend. We are both water lovers, so we started getting away for long weekends in Seguin on this chain of lakes (Guadalupe River). We fell in love and decided to buy a place for ourselves. It has turned into multiple properties that I manage, which gives me the flexibility to spend more time with our growing family. Plus, we always have a place to stay since this has become our favorite place to vacation!
