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.


4 minutes to Gruene Hall.

10 minutes to Schlitterbahn.

It was a fabulous get away, perfect for our 4 day weekend visiting family who live in New Braunfels.

  • 5 of 5

The property is extremely peaceful and well cared for. We really could not have asked for more. It was the perfect location for us because we love Gruene and it was still very close to family in NB. We came for Wurstfest and had an amazing time. The accommodations were wonderful. Thanks for the thoughtful breakfast snacks and coffee/milk. Those were appreciated since we were out of town a bit. We would highly recommend this place. The jacuzzi is a great tough too! Everything about the property felt like a true peaceful getaway in the hill country. Beautiful experience. Thank you again. We will be back!

We had a great time! This cottage was perfect for our family of two adults and our 3 yr old son. He loved the reading nook under the stairs. Thanks for a great experience!
