Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Texas Hill Country, Kissing Tree stands out as a gem in San Marcos. This 55+ community not only offers active adults modern homes and abundant amenities, but also the kind of lifestyle that makes every day fun.
Kissing Tree is home to a sprawling 20-acre amenity campus called The Mix along with a vibrant social building called Independence Hall, which features the community’s one-of-a-kind amenities. Active adults who desire true resort-style living will relish life at Kissing Tree. Let’s take a look inside the community’s spectacular clubhouse and see why it sets Kissing Tree apart as an exceptional active adult community.
Marvel at The Mix
First up on our walkthrough of Kissing Tree’s clubhouse is the community’s 20-acre amenity campus, The Mix. Here, active adults can explore a variety of amenities created around the community’s Tribe groups: foodies, champs, creators, and voyagers. When active adults take a tour for themselves, they’ll be pleasantly surprised at how The Mix differs from other active adult communities in how it bestows a youthful and fun approach to activities and hobbies.
Inside this all-encompassing lifestyle hub, active adults can explore the 18-hole Kissing Tree Golf Club, eight pickleball courts, four horseshoe pits, six bocce ball courts, a putting course, short-game area, driving range, and 15 miles of scenic walking and biking trails. Homeowners can take their four-legged friends out for some exercise or take an invigorating morning walk along these trails that provide incredible community views.
Golfers will delight in the community’s 18-hole course, which is fun for both seasoned and amateur golfers. It’s the first semi-private golf course to open in Texas in more than six years. Naturally beautiful, the course serves as an extension of the spectacular Texas Hill Country scenery, blending grades on the edges and incorporating the landscape’s contours and slopes into the fairways. Each hole provides an avenue of play with varied angles that allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the game and still feel challenged. After an exciting round of golf, active adults can savor a great meal at the golf clubhouse restaurant.
Outdoor enthusiasts can gather up some friends and take their pick of outdoor activity, whether they head to one of the community’s six bocce ball courts or play a friendly game on one of the community’s eight pickleball courts. When the sun goes down, the sports don’t have to end. The lighted bocce ball courts invite residents to play a game both day and night. This serves as just one example of the tremendous variety and appealing pace that active adults find at Kissing Tree.
Fun Abounds at Independence Hall
Opened in 2018, Independence Hall stands out as a friendly welcome to the community. This social building houses Kissing Tree’s unique collection of amenities and provides a glimpse of what it’s like to live in the community. When active adults arrive, they are greeted with a warm Texas smile at the welcome desk and invited to take a look around Kissing Tree. Visitors can even sign up for classes and events if they want a taste of what the community offers.
When active adults stroll through Independence Hall, they can experience the community’s fun, vibrant environment first-hand. There’s cold beer flowing and friends laughing at the indoor and outdoor bar, which serves a variety of craft beer, wine, and mixed drinks. On beautiful Texas nights, there’s live music flowing on the stage, fires glowing in fire pits, and neighbors gathered around communal tables in the biergarten. Residents can join in with neighbors for a game of pool, billiards, or shuffleboard. With a jukebox playing all the hits from the 60s and 70s, active adults just might want to take a minute to show off their best dance moves.
Those who want to brush up on their hobbies or try their hand at something new can head to the demonstration kitchen and community classroom. Yoga enthusiasts or active adults new to the practice can discover their own Zen in a yoga room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the magnificent Hill Country views. The impressive amenities found in Independence Hall provide just a sampling of what active adults can experience at Kissing Tree.
