Lake Dunlap Real Estate

View ListingsMore Info

Positioned near the heart of New Braunfels (about an hour from both Austin and San Antonio), Lake Dunlap is a constant-level lake that stretches downriver for seven Hill Country miles. As one of the largest and longest of its kind in this area (410 acres), Lake Dunlap is also the first of the river-style lakes (followed by Lake McQueeney)...which is why the upper part of this lake has such incredible clarity. The blue-green color of Lake Dunlap’s waters draw in everyone from boaters to waterskiers to wakesurfers. For anyone looking for homes for sale on Lake Dunlap, you’re in luck: prices tend to be lower than those at Lake Austin or Lake LBJ (between $400k to over a million). The increasing popularity of Lake Dunlap combined with the limited supply of waterfront real estate on this lake also means that properties are gaining value quickly! If you’re curious about how to take advantage of this trend, contact us and we’ll show you around Lake Dunlap real estate.

More About Lake Dunlap Real Estate 

Just east of New Braunfels on the iconic Guadalupe River, Lake Dunlap is a river-style lake that offers residents all the perks of some of its larger counterparts. Whereas nearby recreational hubs like Canyon Lake, Lake Travis, and Lake LBJ may offer a wider variety of real estate, Lake Dunlap’s charming size and peaceful atmosphere make it a local favorite. Ask anyone who lives on Lake Dunlap, and they’ll tell you why their lake is the best. 

Notably, Lake Dunlap is different from the other lakes in this chain: its location is squarely below the intersection of the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers...meaning the water is cold (around 72 degrees) and the water is insanely clear, especially at the top half of the lake. 

This river-style shape and feel mean that Lake Dunlap is very conducive for water sports activities. Whereas big waves often disrupt activity on an open lake, several of Lake Dunlap’s straightaways are protected from the wind, creating calm waters. Additionally, Lake Dunlap enjoys substantial stretches of undeveloped shoreline, meaning boat chop is much less of an issue than it is on other lakes. 

Add in low boat traffic (about half as much as McQueeney and a quarter of Lake LBJ, Lake Travis, and Lake Austin), and you’ll find yourself on a lake perfect for recreational boating, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. (Pro Tip: The best boat ramp is off of Schumann’s Beach Road. The cost is $5 to launch) 

If you’re purchasing a piece of Lake Dunlap real estate, you’re in luck: Lake Dunlap belongs to two of the most coveted school districts in the area: New Braunfels ISD and Comal ISD (the river is the dividing line for the 2 districts). New Braunfels ISD was recently named one of the Best School Districts in San Antonio Area by Niche.com. 

For anyone interested in buying, Lake Dunlap real estate is considered a beautiful, though lesser known, market for lake homes and lake lots in Texas. Homes for sale on Lake Dunlap tend to be more affordable than Lake LBJ, Lake Austin, or the lower part of Lake McQueeney (close to the Ski Lodge). However, because the lake’s limited supply with the ever increasing demand, Lake Dunlap properties are gaining in value quickly as demand increases...meaning now is the time to buy! 

One of the reasons Lake Dunlap has been so popular with homeowners is its proximity to NB— the upper part of Lake Dunlap is in the heart of New Braunfels. As one of the top tourist destinations in Texas, New Braunfels is the perfect spot to head for live music, culture, and local festivals. On Lake Dunlap, you’re just a few seconds away from all of the Hill Country action. 

Buyers curious about Lake Dunlap real estate also might be interested in checking out similar area lakes. “If I blindfolded you and put you on Lake Dunlap, Lake McQueeney, or Lake Placid, you wouldn't know which lake I put you on. They are that similar,” says Hunter Croan. In particular, we recommend checking out Lake Placid (very similar to Lake Dunlap, but more affordable) or Lake McQueeney
