our history
Founder and Owner, and the "David" in Camp David Retreat, David Jones's long career as a Real Estate and Business Broker, in addition to owning a large Commercial Real Estate Appraisal business, enabled him to spot a great opportunity when he first saw the property he developed into Camp David Retreat.
 
One of David's passions is the ability to see a property's current use and envision how it could become something different.  This property was being used for a residence and a dog boarding facility, and when it came on the market David saw a new way to utilize the beautiful 10 acres as a retreat setting. Inspired by his now-grown children who seemed to always be "bored" with family vacations, he wanted a way to revive old memories and create new ones  - a place for families to gather where no one in the family, no matter what age or inclination, was bored - all while enjoying the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Camp David Retreat was born!
