About The Owner

Clyde and Marcia Combs, still sweet on each other after 35 years. We live on the property and enjoy sharing it with our guests. Clyde is a licensed irrigator and likes gardening. Marcia loves cooking, sewing and all things related to home-making.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why The Owner chose Hill Country

For years, we looked for the perfect little spot in the Texas hill country. We always thought we'd have to make the hard choice between property with expansive views and property with river frontage. This one has both!

What makes this cottage unique

Our private residence and the guesthouse are situated on a cliff high above the rapids area known as 'Clutter Falls'. The constant sound of the river below is very soothing and the night sky is particularly beautiful from this vantage point. Bird watchers will be delighted to find themselves looking DOWN on a wide variety of birds.

We love living here. It's a great place for quiet reflection. Sometimes early in the morning, when the mist is rising over the river, I feel like I catch a glimpse of the way the world was before Eve bit into that apple.

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have been using vrbo for nearly a decade, but this is by far the best place we have stayed yet! The retreat is beautiful inside and out, the pictures don't do it justice. The unit itself was immaculately clean, and decorated wonderfully. The owners were sooo friendly, and had prepared a great breakfast of egg casserole, muffins, fruit, juice and milk for us. The outdoor area was great, with the hot tub overlooking the Guadalupe river and the falls. Really impressed by every last element of our stay. Plus it's just a mile to the heart of Gruene, an easy walk or short ride (we took an Uber for $5). We left our kids with their grandparents, but the unit would be perfect for a family with kids too. Highly highly recommend!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay with Marcia and Clyde. Their cottage is very comfortable and very, very quiet. The views from the hot tub and sitting area are beautiful and there's no traffic or city noise, despite being a very short drive from town.

Highly recommended!

Wonderful location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Marcia and her husband were kind and welcoming. They took care of every detail and made our brief stay feel like visiting family. Or, the kind of family you've always hoped for! We were greeted with warm, delicious blueberry muffins, the kitchenette was stocked for our breakfast and the garage apartment was clean and cozy. The view and hot tub above the falls were beautiful and relaxing. The location is almost close enough to walk to Gruene hall and the river. Certainly right around the corner if you're driving. We absolutely loved our stay.

Wonderful Getaway Spot for Gruene

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay if you're visiting Gruene - one I hope to stay at again and that I'd recommend without hesitation. The hosts are gracious and accommodating, and answered all my emailed questions promptly. Breakfast is absolutely delicious, and I loved that it was there for us to heat in the microwave and enjoy (there were also wonderful muffins and a variety of cereal, plus yummy homemade granola). You'll have a lot of privacy, which we appreciated, yet the hosts were attentive and available if needed - my husband and I asked about the availability of the hot tub for an afternoon, and when we went out later it had been been made ready for us. This is a great place, just about a mile from Gruene Hall and restaurants/shopping, yet will give you peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. I had looked for something even closer to Gruene Hall because I had wanted to be able to walk to a concert at the venue, but am glad we stayed at this retreat because it allowed us to get away from the noise, traffic, and really relax (though I think you could walk to downtown with a good pair of shoes, and a flashlight is a must if you're doing it at night). I confess I'm very selective about hotels/ B&Bs, and this is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of booking. It's lovely, spacious, clean, quiet, has an excellent location and the hosts are wonderful - I'm glad we got to visit with them for a bit, and hope we can do so again.

Quaint comfortable property, a nice get away and close to many activities.

  • 5 of 5

Marcia was a gracious host. We enjoyed the property. The hot tub overlooking the river was very nice and relaxing. Deer wandered the property and the area and the closeness to Gruene, San Marcos and San Antonio make this a nice place to visit. We won't stay at a hotel when visiting the area again, it was truly enjoyable to have the amenities and space this location offers.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend was perfect and our hosts were wonderful. The guesthouse is very comfortable. The kids loved their loft room and particularly the little reading nook under the stairs! I loved the hot tub at sunset and the incredibly comfy beds! Breakfasts were yummy and the unit is comfortably stocked with all you need for a quick getaway. We will look forward to returning next year.
