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 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

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.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! From the minute you arrive, you feel relaxed with the beautiful landscaped property and sounds from the river. The garage apartment is wonderful, and has everything you need, including a great breakfast casserole for breakfast. We enjoyed sitting and listening to the river falls below. The hot tub is s great added bonus. This property is in a great location and the owners are super nice and accommodating! We will defiantly be renting this place again!

The property was well maintained and extra clean

  • 5 of 5

The owners made every attempt to ensure our stay was comfortable. We even ditched what we had planned that evening because we didn't want to leave. The hot tub was more fun anyway

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here! It's the perfect distance from downtown Gruene and close to tube rentals if you are wanting to float the river. The owners were so sweet and the breakfast Marcia left in the fridge was amazing. I would defiantly recommend this adorable place to anyone. We will be back!

Perfect place. Very clean, perfectly appointed in a great location. Absolutely no issues in a very well maintained cottage with a great river view. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast treats were an unexpected bonus. Very happy with our decision to stay here and will be back.

Clean, quaint, and definitely coming back.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking good a cozy get away just to recharge and this was definitely the trip for us. Marcia thought of everything to make us feel welcome and the property really is a hidden away oasis. The views are spectacular and the area was peaceful. This is a "highly recommended" stay!
