About Carol Triola

Joe and Carol Triola and have been in Kerrville for 27 years. We moved from Houston to raise our children in this wonderful town. Joe is a Real Estate inspector and Carol is a Licensed Professional Counselor. We are well known around Kerrville and take great pride in our reputations; for being ethical, hard working people you can count on.

Carol Triola purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Carol Triola chose Hill Country

We recently built the cottage (2014) as an addition to our property and so we could continue to enjoy visitors. The Methodist Encampment location makes it an especially appealing vacation home for those who appreciate esthetics and/or are visiting Mount Wesley for Emmaus retreats or other events.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the coziness of the home, as well as it's preserved wood and stone. It has a 100 year old antique pine counter top in the kitchen, oak floors and native field stone on the house. As always, it is "the cleanest house in town". The location is close to everything, quiet and feels like you are in the woods, 5 minutes from town.

We had the best time and the place is awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We did not get to meet Carol but I did call and tell her we loved it. We had the guest house and the pool all to ourselves as they were out of town. Most of the places in the Methodist Encampment have stairs but this place is all one level so easy to get in and out, especially with ice chests and luggage. It is new construction, very clean and very cutely decorated. We absolutely loved it!

Great Home in Kerrville

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over the course of 5 days, and it was a great option. Very comfortable, and very nice. We had everything we needed. The location was great; close to downtown, 5 minutes from stores, restaurants, groceries and gas station. It is located in a great neighborhood, has a great yard, very nicely decorated and the owners made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area!

Ideal Getaway for R&R in Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Carol's Cottage with another couple for two nights and almost two full days and it was wonderful! We were close to downtown Kerrville for any needs, but felt practically in the country with the peaceful neighborhood. The home was clean and the decorating was to our liking. We even enjoyed the swimming pool - outdoor temps were barely warm enough, but we did get in! We also enjoyed sitting on the front porch and checking out the chickens in the back. I was nervous it would be too tiny for two couples, but it really was roomy enough. We would recommend Carol's Cottage for anyone looking to get away for a couple days in beautiful Kerrville/Hill Country!

Perfect Home Base in the Texas Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this charming Hill Country cottage. It is on a quiet residential street with a neighborhood park that has a great walking trail. The location is great - close to all that Kerrville and the Texas Hill Country have to offer. Restaurants, grocery stores and shopping are a short drive, as well as, a Starbuck's for big city coffee addicts.

The home has undergone extensive updates and was exceptionally clean (includes WIFI). The kitchen has new counters as well as new appliances. We felt like the owners were hosting us in their own home. They were a true delight and were very helpful getting us oriented in town.

We would highly recommend the McAllen House for either a short or long term stay.
