The Retreat at Cottonseed Falls offers you and your family a chance to slow down and relax. As a result, you can genuinely enjoy each other’s company at your own private retreat! Then, when you find a calm spot, the sound of river flowing by and gentle breezes off the water enhance your spirit. Many guests love to just sip a tall glass of iced tea on the porch and watching the kids play on the lawn. If that sounds too good to be true, you haven’t visited the Retreat at Cottonseed Falls yet!
Built in 1920, this family homestead sits on one of the most spectacular spots on the San Marcos River. Since 1950, The Retreat at Cottonseed Falls has been owned by the same family. The owners lovingly restored the home by the very people that were raised within the walls. When you walk through the door, you will feel the history and sense of peace and pride that permeate the space.
When you arrive, you will find three private bedrooms and a large bunk room. With comfort in mind, each room includes comfortable bedding and relaxing atmosphere. Next, three separate living areas invite families and small corporate retreats to remember why they are here – to relax. From there, the kitchen offers you a completely modern feel. But, be sure to keep a keen eye out for the small details throughout the home. Bits of family history include a hand painted saw (been above the door as long as anyone can remember) and the owner’s family cattle brand painted on the floor. Every room has a story to tell and interesting features that everyone that visits will constantly discover something new.
As if the inside were not enough, the outdoor space is an absolute treasure. The 800 square feet of deck overlooks a luscious lawn perfect for a friendly game of touch football or simply throwing a Frisbee around. The spectacular beauty of the river is mesmerizing. The gentle curves and the majestic trees towering above make this place very special indeed. A fire pit has been added to the riverbank for an evening of s’mores and tall tales, and an outdoor shower installed near the porch for any river dippers.
You will be able to marvel at the night sky without all the city lights competing with the stars and the sounds of nature soothe the soul. We hope that you create as many memories and that this place touches your heart as much as it has the family that has allowed us to share it. After a stay at The Retreat at Cottonseed Falls, we know it will become a favorite destination for years to come.
