Dive Into New Braunfels: Affordable Homes Near the Water

The Texas Hill Country is known for its beautiful and swimmable waters...and if you own a boat or a jet ski (or even just an inner tube), you’re probably eager to live near one of these sparkling rivers or lakes.

You may be thinking: “But waterfront property is too expensive!” And it’s true: homes directly on the water are often luxuriously high-end. But thankfully, there are ways to emulate waterfront property for a fraction of the price! The following homes are within a stone’s throw of beautiful Hill Country waterways.
