Welcome to the perfect Family Getaway in the heart of the Texas Hill Country!
Timberwood Retreat is a lovely, custom-built home perfect for your family’s summer vacation! Our annual rental season starts by Memorial Day weekend and wraps up just after Labor Day. We have a three night minimum, but occasionally, we may make an exception for 2-night stays mid-week. There’s plenty of room for your family of up to 10 (Small extra fee for 11 & 12) people in this spacious, well decorated 3 bedroom/ 2 ½ bath home surrounded by trees. With so many amenities & features, you’ll want to return summer after summer! You’ll love the welcoming, yet elegant beveled-glass entryway, 14 foot ceilings & open floor plan. You will feel right at home at Timberwood Retreat.
Conveniently located just a few miles north of New Braunfels & Gruene in a quiet, relaxed rural subdivision, you’ll find it easy to get to historic Gruene Hall, world-famous Schlitterbahn Water Park, Comal River or Guadalupe River/River Road locations or, if you’re a shopper, one of two Outlet Malls, all within a 10- 20 minute drive.
If city visits are in your plan, you’re right in between Austin and San Antonio, each within 45 minutes. Fredericksburg, Boerne, Wimberley are all easy drives for fun day-trips to quaint Texas towns.
You’ll love “hanging around the house” with a fully equipped full-size kitchen and adjoining living spaces to play games, watch HD sports or movies, eat & relax. The breakfast nook is great for games & meals for up to six, while the open Dining-Living can seat up to ten. It may be hard to choose which is better: lounging around the 55” HDTV with Surround Sound in the Living room, rustling up a gourmet meal or heading outside to grill, nap on the shaded deck, catch some rays in a sunny spot, soak in the private Hot Tub or make S’mores at the Chiminea. The calm, relaxing atmosphere at Timberwood Retreat will help your family create those lasting memories you’ll be talking about & reliving for years.

Hi~We built this home in 2000 & LOVE living in New Braunfels. There is so much to do here & we love our quiet neighborhood! My favorite summer activity is floating down the Comal River. All our family is here & this is definitely our 'home base'. We did most of the work ourselves on this custom home, and revamped the Back Yard, Privacy fence, New Hot Tub in 2011, as well as two of the bedrooms & the guest bath. In 2013, we added new hardwood flooring in the livingroom & master bedroom. We took a year off in 2015, Summer 2016 was awesome with spruced up the Party Porch! Book your Summer 2017 dates with 2014 rates! We'd love for you to be our guest while we are away for the summer.
We own & manage another luxury condo in New Braunfels (Bella Vista on the Guadalupe- sleeps 6), so it wasn't a huge leap to convert this great house into 'Timberwood Retreat' for your family's enjoyment. 2017 will be our sixth season!!
Molly purchased this house in 2000
Dear Molly & Ron,
Thank you for making your home available. Our family very much enjoyed our stay. The open floor plan is wonderful and the decor is very homey and beautiful. The back yard is inviting. We very much enjoyed the Hot Tub.
I also used the laundry room a lot and liked the homemade laundry detergent. The location is great since we did things in Austin & San Antonio. Gruene is a great town to visit....We had a great stay! Byron & Linda, bekah, Zack, Hudson, Bethany, Scott, Lora, Benjamin & Bethany
Great house and lots of room for our group! Very close to everything. Highly recommend this house to any family looking for fun and relaxation!!
This past weekend a few friends and I met up for a weekend getaway to float the Guadalupe River. We were very fortunate to have found this place to rent for the weekend. Not only is the house perfect for a larger group but Molly was so very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We enjoyed grilling out, sitting on the large patio and sitting in the hot tub catching up with old friends. The location was great, it is nestled in a small country like residence with deer roaming the area, just down the road from Gruene and New Braunfels.
Great house. Perfectly fit our need with 8 people. Love the backyard and in a great location. PERFECT!
We had a fantastic stay at the Timberwood Retreat! Homey, spacious, great outdoor space, and nearby so many fun things! We had a great time celebrating my niece's 1st birthday. It was great to have the family all in one place! We would definitely recommend staying at this lovely home!
The home is well cared for, clean, and organized. The backyard is perfect for bbqs or gatherings. The layout of the house allows for privacy and peace even if several people are sharing the home, particularly if you're fortunate enough to get the master bedroom. This property is conveniently located near everything, yet has the feel of a true retreat.
Hey Molly, thank you for allowing us to use your home. You thought of everything. The house was very clean, and the beds were comfortable . It was a good location, close to Schlitterbahn and Gruene. The backyard is perfect for hanging out, grilling and kids enjoyment. We did not use the hot tub, but also a nice addition. Thanks again.
