The Bunk House at Meadow Lake Retreat River Getaway / Fishing Dock / Kayaks / Fast WiFi

2 Bedrooms • 2 Baths (1 full, 1 half) • Sleeps 1-4
Internet River Downtown (more...)

A beautiful spot perched under the trees on the banks of the Guadalupe River in Seguin, TX. One of 2 lovely tiny homes on the property. Plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. 100' of riverfront with beach entry. FREE kayaks and paddle boards. Great fishing from the dock or banks. Reconnect w/ the great outdoors: fire pit, outdoor shower, hammocks. Sleeps 4.

The water levels depicted in the photos are current. The water has been down since March 2023, but it's not due to drought conditions. The dam that created Meadow Lake (aka Lake Nolte) from the Guadalupe River since 1928, is being rebuilt. While it’s now a river (12-15’ lower than when it was a lake), it’s pretty consistent level and flow, despite rainfall, because it’s fed from the bottom of Canyon Lake. The river has a muddy bottom, so plumes of button moss can float downstream and sometimes collect at water's edge, esp during warmer summer months.

Despite the lower levels, we are still in a great spot for kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, floating, wading, and fishing. It varies from ankle deep at the edge of the bank, 3-4 feet around the fishing dock, and over 10 feet in other areas. Additionally, there's no boat traffic so it's very calm and quiet here.

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. But we do have an outdoor shower with a tankless water heater with a view of the water, which is second to none!

The Bunk House is one of 2 tiny homes on the property, so the outdoor areas and riverfront may be shared with up to 4 guests from the other tiny home, the Loft House. Your house is private (all to yourself) with your own attached front porch, as well as separate outdoor dining, grill, hammock chair, hammock, and paddles. The Shed, fire pit, outdoor area, and riverfront are shared with plenty of room to spread out.

If Meadow Lake Retreat Bunk House is booked on your preferred dates, please check out the other tiny house on the property, Meadow Lake Retreat Loft House. We also own Lake Nolte Retreat (tiny home 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 groceries 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.

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!
