About Marcia Combs

Clyde and Marcia Combs, still sweet on each other after 35 years. Clyde is a licensed irrigator and likes gardening. Marcia loves cooking, sewing and all things related to home-making. We lived on the property many years and enjoyed sharing it with our guests. Now we are living nearby in Austin and have handed the innkeeper baton to a trusted friend. We will stay closely involved to make sure the property remains a blessing to our many new and returning customers.

Marcia Combs purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Marcia Combs chose New Braunfels

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

The guesthouse is 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.

Enchanting Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our recent stay at the Retreat at Clutter Falls. The attention to detail with regard to decor and comfort was amazing. The breakfast treats were delicious and much appreciated. The grounds were beautiful and private. We enjoyed the hot tub and view with the sounds of the river below. I would love to give this place 5 stars, unfortunately there was construction next door which was noisy and dusty preventing us from utilizing the outdoor patio area as much as we had hoped.

Awesome location

  • 4 of 5

I loved it...perfect for what we were looking for. The only complaint I have is that the tree outside hit the side of the roof all night making a banging. Other than that it was absolutely perfect!!!!!
