Enjoy Our New Website!

Posted on: January 12th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Have you noticed?

Hill Country, A Cottage & RV Resort has a newly redesigned website.

“We really wanted to gear the website to online reservations,” said Brad Pemberton, general manager of the resort. Hill Country has more than 270 RV sites and 65 park model and other rental accommodations, with another 15 park model cottages to be added by spring. It’s one of the largest providers of park model accommodations in the Sunbelt.

The mobile-device-friendly site has also been simplified so that campers can quickly find the prices of the RV sites or park model accommodations of interest to them.

TXAD Internet Services redesigned the site.

Chris Brailsford, senior web developer for TXAD Internet Services, said the new website is also more modern and “resort-like” in appearance and includes new information on the resort’s ability to accommodate large groups, such as family reunions, parties, rallies and corporate retreats, which was not on the website before.

In addition to creating a slider of large images on the home page, TXAD Internet Services rearranged much of the website’s content, consolidating information on all of the cottages onto a single descriptive page, and using drop-down navigation tabs to free up space.

About the Cottages

The resort’s park model cottages come in a variety of styles and sleep between two and 10 people. They are fully furnished and include linens, towels, kitchen utensils and a flat-screen TV with DVD player. Each cottage also has an attached deck or patio with chairs, a barbecue grill and picnic table. The resort’s RV sites also include big-rig-friendly sites.

Other resort amenities include two indoor heated pools and hot tubs, a fitness facility, a jumping pillow, a jumping pad, a game room with air hockey, foosball as well as video games, fenced dog walk areas and kitchen facilities for use by large groups.

An outdoor swimming pool is also coming soon to the resort.

2013 Hot Rod Revolution Coming to Gruene, Texas!

Posted on: November 14th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Two classic rods from a previous show.

The eighth annual Hot Rod Revolution hot rod show is coming to Gruene on Nov. 23. This event will be unlike any other ever held in Gruene.

Many of our boys came home from World War II with a lingering itch for speed and danger. They had become exposed to each as they fought for our freedom overseas and actively looked for an outlet when they got home. Some turned to hot rods.

The Hot Rod Revolution is a traditional pre-1948 hot rod show that pays homage to those men and the machines they created.

More Background

The show started in early 2006 after the revolutionaries (Keith, Mary, Ryan and Marcie) decided that the world needed a different kind of car show. Armed with a passion for traditional hot rods and a dedication to spreading the gospel, they launched the Hot Rod Revolution.

The first five years of the show were hosted in Penngrove, Calif., at an old baseball diamond. The show quickly garnered a reputation as being the best small car show on the planet – 100 or so pre-1948 hot rods.

They moved the show to Austin starting in 2010. The Seaholm Power Plant was chosen as a backdrop and what ended up going down on that November day in 2010 has become legendary.

In 2011 and 2012, the show was held at an active military base in conjunction with the U.S. Army.

Gruene was picked for this year’s show. This is going to be epic!

Come and see the gathering on Nov. 23 in Gruene. A spectator fee of $10 gets you into the show as well as access to some great vendors and some incredible live music.

Gates open at 10 a.m.  The show lasts until 5 p.m.

Comedy Nightspot in New Braunfels

Posted on: September 27th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Logo says it all about Tripp's Comedy Club

Now you have another reason to visit the Hill Country RV Resort & Cottage Rentals – Tripp’s Ultimate Comedy Club/Humor Bar in New Braunfels.

This nightspot opened in August in the basement of the old New Braunfels City Hall, former location of Liberty Bistro. The address is 200 N. Seguin Ave.

The comedy club’s primary owner and a former comedian himself, Tripp Marsalis, told the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung that he hopes his venture shatters some accepted ideas of date night.

“I’m looking for the couples. Get a babysitter and come out,” he implored. “We’re looking for (people in their) upper 30s, 40s and 50s looking for a place to go. There are only so many times you can go to the movies and Applebee’s.”

Marsalis said he hopes to offer a different type of club in New Braunfels.

Marsalis also plans to hold comedy workshops for those interested in learning the craft. He will give them pointers on presenting a winning comedic performance and then hold a comedy showcase for the “students” to show off what they learned.

He also hopes to open his kitchen in a few weeks, eventually serving food and even delivering meals, joke included. The goal is to bring a pleasant, new experience to New Braunfels at reasonable prices with a smile.

A promotion for the current headlining comedy act at Tripp's.

“I opened this because I love live comedy,” he said. “There’s no experience like it.”

For information about Tripp’s Ultimate Comedy Club and Humor Bar, call (830) 629-2774. The club is on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Tripps-Ultimate-Comedy-ClubHumor-Bar.

Thanks to the Herald-Zeitung for the above information.

Circuit of the Americas race track hits new milestone

Posted on: August 17th, 2012 by admin No Comments

At Hill Country RV Resort & Cottage Rentals, we are very excited about the Circuit of the Americas race track, which is under construction right now in Austin Texas. This facility will be finished in time for the Formula 1 USA Grand Prix November 16 through 18.

Last week construction crews laid down the final piece of the first layer of pavement on the 5.516 km track (about 3.4 miles). The process, called “marrying the track” connected turn 20 back through where the starting line will be placed up the hill to turn 1.

This is so exciting because this facility will host the most prestigious racing events in the world, right here in the Texas Hill Country. The state of the art track has room for 120,000 fans and will be located in Southeast Austin with views of downtown.

And luckily for our guests our resort is just a short drive up I-35 and you’ll be able to avoid downtown Austin traffic and the hassle of trying to book a high priced hotel in the city limits. You’ll be able to stay in your own RV as well! We’ll post more updates about the track as we get them, so keep up with the blog for more information. Call us at 830-625-1919 or visit our website to book your RV site or cottage rental today, and experience history watching a race in the only U.S. Formula 1 track.
