Property Description
Perfect getaway retreat to spend time exploring the Texas Hill Country and Canyon Lake area for discriminating vacationers.

Enjoy the ambiance and rustic charm of Thula (pronounced Tu-la) House. Thula means quiet in the language of South Africa's Zulu people.

As a Texan who spends time in South Africa, the decor of Thula House is a tasteful blend of antique furnishings, Texas and South African art, a bit of both worlds combined at Canyon Lake.

Enjoy your morning coffee or tea on the deck with a view of Canyon Lake, then spend your day having fun in the area, the possibilities are many and varied to keep you entertained.

The living, kitchen and dining area have the original hardwood floors, skylights, and ceiling fans. The living room features a wood burning fireplace of native stone, a 32 inch flat screen tv, and nice of view of the lake from the south windows. Living room includes a futon sofa which converts for extra sleeping space.

The kitchen is well equipped for all your needs. Fresh yard eggs from neighboring hens are provided for your breakfast. The pantry is stocked with salt, pepper, basic spices, flour, sugar, a selection of teas, and more. This is self-catering so you need to bring your own food and charcoal for the BBQ grill if you want to cook out on the front porch or deck. A number of good restaurants are within driving distance if you dont' want to cook. There is a guest info book inside with menus from area restaurants.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and a sliding glass door allowing access to the deck and back yard. The queen bed with memory-foam mattress is new so you will have a good night's sleep. It is outfitted with 100% cotton, 500+ thread count sheets and quilts hand-made by family members.

The second bedroom features a beautiful full size, antique bed of hand carved oak and a mirrored antique armoire to hang your clothes in during your stay. The bed is outfitted in luxurious 100% cotton sheets and quilts hand-made by family members.

Guests are welcomed with fresh flowers and a personal touch not always found elsewhere.

This is a great place for couples, small families, or small groups of friends. Well-behaved children age 10+ are welcome; no pets are allowed no matter how small or how cute, sorry.

Thula House is conveniently located near 3 boat ramps, 1 public fishing pier, approximately 40 miles to San Antonio, 15 minutes drive to Wimberley and Blanco, 30 minutes to San Marcos, New Braunfels and Gruene. We are within walking distance to a small vineyard and winery open on Saturdays for wine tastings. Whitewater Amphitheater is 13.2 miles. Outlet Mall Shopping in San Marcos is a 30 minute drive.

Early Fall is a great time to be in the Hill Country and Canyon Lake area. The triple digit temperatures are beginning to fade and early mornings are cool and crisp, a sure sign that Fall is on its way soon. From the end of September to early December this area can have those beautiful 'Chamber of Commerce' days when the weather is just perfect to be out enjoying the area.

Thula House is a member of the Canyon lake Lodging Association and the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce.
