About the property

1 Bedroom, King Bed, Gourmet Kitchen, Private Courtyard with Fireplace & Hot Tub

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 connection, Grove House is the ideal setting for a romantic get-away, or a solo sojourn.

Nestled beneath Lone Man Mountain, just forty-five minutes from Austin, Texas, Grove House 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.

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.

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. (Down-alternative bedding available upon request.)

In the morning, wake up with a cappuccino, latte, espresso, or a selection of organic herbal teas and a breath of fresh air.

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.

Explore the eclectic library of writers, artists and wildlife guides.

Request advance arrangements for a therapeutic in-house massage.

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.

RELAX, RECONNECT and RECHARGE your spirit at Grove House.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a peaceful & relaxed time at the Grove House!! We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary and could not have found a more wonderful place to reconnect with each other, from life's busy times. Thanks for your insight and detail in making this a place of peace and rest.

We absolutely enjoyed our three days at the Grove House. It was exactly what we were looking for - a peaceful, well-appointed cottage away from the noise of a road or lots of other people, but accessible to restaurants. The attention to detail at the Grove House was impressive. We are leaving rested and relaxed!

Two days of pure relaxation. The Grove House is simply amazing, beautiful, and one of a kind. So close to the surrounding towns but yet a retreat ... We had such an amazing time and will return.

Two days is not enough. Pure tranquility! Restored, renewed, inspired ... Thank you for creating such an awesome place. This could very well become a habit of ours.

Peace and Serenity. I awoke feeling restored, nurtured and calm. This place has a heart and soul.

Apart from a breeze sighing through the trees, the silence around Grove House is so pure as to seem palpable. If you’re looking for a place that gives you the space to rest, think, create, or simply do nothing, the amenity-rich Grove House is about as good as it gets.



There’s nothing quite so refreshing and freeing as star watching while you shower al fresco on the patio. That was just before jumping in the hot tub with a nearby crackling fire. The patio is completely enclosed by a beautiful, towering wall of native stone and if you’re still uncomfortable about being naked outdoors, proprietor, Kim Miller, provides bulky warm bathrobes.

This elegant haven is restful, peaceful, and rejuvenating. OMG is that outdoor shower incredible. Oh and did I mention romantic ... the outdoor fireplace ... the hot tub ... the porches ... and all the stars and the trees, and the sound of the wind through the trees. That is all we could hear ... waking up in this beautiful spot on this glorious sunshine filled day... so peaceful... watching the birds and sipping espresso.

Celebrating 20 years of marriage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary at Grove House. Kim Miller, the owner, has built and decorated a lovely cottage in the woods. Very private and secluded, Grove House is the perfect escape from busy life. Kim provided us with everything we needed to enjoy a restful and peaceful weekend. Grove House is very close to restaurants and shops. I highly recommend Grove House. My husband and I plan on returning in 2017.

Peaceful and Secluded

Secluded and well maintained. Kim was really nice and helpful. This place has pretty much everything you need. The kitchen is fully stocked and the amenities are top notch. The outdoor shower was my personal favorite. We will return.

Loved the grove house. Was very secluded. Had everything you would ever need inside. Super clean, well maintained. Used the fireplace both nights. Kim was great. Actually gave me some great tips on where to go eat in town. Would highly recommend it. Thanks again Kim for sharing your wonderful little gem.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for a friend as a gift, so I did not visit the property personally. However, my friend loved it and Kim, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful during the booking and move-in processes. She was super responsive and communicated by both text and email to ensure that we were taken care of ASAP. Thank you Kim for your wonderful hospitality!

The perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are very nice and the owner, Kim, obviously doesn't do anything on the cheap as all of the furnishings are first class. My wife and I definitely plan to come back.
