LIVING & DINING
The living area provides ample seating to wind down in the evenings with a queen sofa, full loveseat, 2 comfortable armchairs and an extra stool. The dining area hosts a dinner table for 4 and seats another 4 on the adjacent bar-height stools. A locally recycled storage unit next to the refrigerator provides accessible pantry space for guests' groceries.
Start your day with your favorite coffee or tea, watching the deer from the back deck in the early hours. The compact and well-stocked kitchen packs everyday tools, small appliances and cookware (including non-stick, cast iron, a crockpot and wok) to cook great meals together. A gas stove / oven, refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher and microwave provide modern amenities to fully enjoy your time. Savor the minutes - this is when the best memories are shared!
The private Master bedroom (queen) with en suite sleeps two (2) on the main floor. Upstairs, the West and East bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Each upstairs bedroom (one queen and one twin in each) sleeps three (3). The queen sleeper sofa in the living area accommodates two (2) more. The main level also provides a convenient half bath and laundry area near the back deck French doors.
OUTDOORS & GROUNDS
The open living, eating and kitchen areas on the main floor access a wall of French doors leading to a spacious deck. With lounging, eating and grilling space (don't forget the bag of charcoal!), the deck steps down to the grounds and nearby fire ring. Take a seat in the surrounding adirondacks for the best night show in starry evenings - great stories and tall tales told for free!
WHILING AWAY THE HOURS
During the day, listen to your favorite music using our Bluetooth-enabled wireless speaker and challenge your family and friends to a croquet or horseshoe throwdown (Jenga and dominoes, too!) - bragging rights and all! Immerse yourself in a quick read from some of our favorite books and short stories. And should you start experiencing digital withdrawal, WiFi and the TVs in the living area and master bedroom bring you Dish content, too.
Enjoy privacy and quiet nature on the grounds as you wander through strands of oaks and junipers. Meditate and breath deeply through the quiet garden. Or walk down and explore the large rocks and ravine of Juniper Grove's seasonal dry creek. Can you spot the deer paths? Here, the land keeps kids of all ages exploring Hill Country nature at its best.
EXPLORING TEXAS HILL COUNTRY & ATTRACTIONS
Wimberley draws all ages with many reasons to return. Cool off and explore the unique landscape that forms the Texas Hill Country at Blue Hole Regional Park, Jacob's Well, the Blanco River and the Devil's Backbone Scenic Drive (especially beautiful at sunrise or dusk!). Delight your taste buds and antiquing itch at the many eateries, breweries, distilleries and vineyards offering tours, in addition to Market Days and specialty shops.
And for the adventurous, take in the spectacular views of the Valley at Wimberley Zipline Adventures or challenge yourself at the Quicksand Golf Course greens in Woodcreek. Whether you're catching music shows or performances at Blue Hole or the EmilyAnn or Corral Theaters, or just leaving behind the hectic daily pace for a few days, Wimberley will bring you back time after time.
From Wimberley, explore Hill Country with short daytrips to nearby historic Gruene Hall, the Guadalupe River and institutions like the Driftwood and Duchman vineyards, Salt Lick, Royers Pie Haven and the yearly Round Top Antique Shows.
