GROVE HOUSE is a private cottage retreat located in the woods outside of Wimberley, Texas. Providing a step back from the built world and a haven for inspiration and liaison, Grove House offers the ideal setting for two adults looking for a romantic get-away.
POET’S HOUSE, adjacent to Grove House, accommodates two additional adults. It is only available as an add-on rental to the party that rents Grove House and is otherwise unoccupied.
Nestled beneath Lone Man Mountain, Grove House is just forty-five minutes from Austin, Texas. It is a luxurious, eco-conscious sanctuary --- off the beaten path, down a road less traveled.
Withdraw to the simple elegance of a San Miguel-inspired courtyard and shower under a canopy of stars. Follow the moonrise from the hot tub. Rest your feet up by the fire and recall the lost art of doing nothing.
Inside, liberate your cares in an aromatherapy bath in the century-old clawfoot tub, rescued from a French Quarter hotel. Sink into 100% organic bamboo/cotton sheets and white goose down comforter* in the king platform bed, handmade by a local craftsman from river-reclaimed sinker cypress. Explore the eclectic library of writers, artists and wildlife guides.
The chef-savvy kitchen includes an Italian gas range, dishwasher, cook’s tools, and comes stocked with basic cupboard supplies including fresh citrus, olive oil, garlic, vinegars and organic half & half.
Step down from the covered porch to an old-growth arbor of oaks and fire up the grill for alfresco dining, overlooking a meadow frequented by wildlife.
In the morning, wake up with a cappuccino, latte, espresso, or a selection of organic herbal teas and a breath of fresh air.
Fine dining, art galleries, antiquing, and more are fewer than fifteen minutes from Grove House, in the village of Wimberley. You’ll also discover nearby vineyards and wineries, swimming holes, music events, festivals and flea markets.
We strive to be pro-ecology stewards of this beautiful ‘patch’ of land. Walk out your front door and down the road to discover miles of famous Texas Hill Country vistas---rich with wildlife and inspiration.
POET’S HOUSE, like Grove House, is designed for comfort and inspiration. Pull open the curtains for a splash of sunrise across the custom-made wrought iron queen bed. Poet’s House has a full kitchen, bath with shower and a covered lounging porch. Add-on rates are $165 weeknights, and $175 Friday and Saturday nights.
RELAX, RECONNECT and RECHARGE your spirit in the secluded, romantic haven that is Grove House.
