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.

Cute little place

  • 5 of 5

Cute little place. Stayed for one night. Very clean. Easy access to restaurants and shopping. It is extremely quiet. So quiet, we used white noise to sleep. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Just be aware that if you sit up in the beds upstairs, you may hit your head on the slanted ceiling. It is obvious that the owners make sure everything is taken care prior to guest arrival.

My girlfriends and I spent the Thanksgiving weekend here and LOVED it. It was so relaxing and secluded but also close to great shopping and restaurants. We plan to go back!!! The views from the hot tub were worth the trip!!!
