About John and Jennifer Lynch
We love San Marcos, having gone to Texas State when it was Southwest Texas. Purchased the home in 2015 and renovated completely. We live in the Houston area, but enjoy the Hill Country every chance we get.
John and Jennifer Lynch purchased this House in 2015
Why John and Jennifer Lynch chose San Marcos
We hope you'll enjoy the relaxing quiet of the 2.5 acre wooded lot, and all the comforts of home with comfortable bedding, internet, apple TV, large kitchen with plenty of work space for entertaining. Also, enjoy the many activities close by in San Marcos, Wimberly, New Branfels, Gruene, Austin and San Antonio. River tubing, Schlitterbahn water park, outlets shopping, Natural Bridge caverns, San Antonio history, Austin and Gruene Hall live music - this area has it all!
What makes this House unique
We love the charm of this 1200 square foot house and have worked to make it comfortable with offering nice finishes like hardwood floors throughout, granite countertops and stainless appliances in the kitchen, and open concept. While it may be small it has a lot of character with the beamed ceilings, rock fireplace and beautiful surroundings.

Great Location and Private
We enjoyed our stay during TXST freshman orientation. The home is only about ten minutes away from campus. Having the comforts of home is more relaxing than staying in a hotel. We will definitely return in the future.
Love the place, really close to town but out in the country!
Awesome spot to squat! Lots of room to enjoy family time in a new spot. Marcos is really close yet you are so private out here it's great - if that's your thing and it was for us! Love the classic Texas Hill Country feel of the house and grounds.
Don't hesitate - do it!
Great location very cool house.
This house was perfect for our Texas State graduation weekend. Plenty of room for us and the kids!
We enjoyed our stay in the Hill Country. The house was very clean and set-up well. The only reason for the 4-star is the low water pressure. With four of us getting ready for our son's wedding - coming-going, hot days setting everything up, we were so looking forward to a nice shower. Overall all, great experience. Thank you for a wonderful place.
Perfect retreat for graduation weekend!
Merrywood was everything we wanted for our time together to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Texas State University. There was plenty of space for our large group and the kitchen was equipped with the essentials we needed to enjoy our meals together. The backyard is a nature wonderland and we enjoyed watching the deer walk by. The owners were great to work with and responded quickly when we corresponded. I would certainly recommend this home to other Bobcat families.
It was the perfect house for our river trip. The back patio was our favorite place to be, we even brought our own hammock and hung it in the trees! I loved that it was a bit out of town and we could enjoy our own space. We'll definitely be back next year!
