One of Wimberley's original vacation getaways, this updated 1940's rock cottage is an amazing vacation value.
Shepherd's Rest is a wonderful, centrally-located launching pad to enjoy all the Wimberley Valley has to offer from one of Texas' finest swimming holes, Blue Hole, to Wimberley Market Days, shopping on the Square, the Corral Outdoor Movie Theatre, local vineyards, playhouses, etc.
When it's time to relax there's plenty of room to enjoy the great outdoors at Shepherd's Rest - from stargazing in the hot tub; playing in the large, fenced, kid-friendly yard; grilling in the outdoor kitchen; relaxing on the Texas-sized front porch; or taking the two-minute stroll down to one of the most scenic *swimming holes on the Blanco River. The outdoor gaming pavilion includes a basketball goal and darts.
Inside you'll find comfortable king and queen bedding accommodations; additional amenities include a full-kitchen, cable TV, wireless Internet, puzzles, cards, and board games to help you enjoy your stay at Shepherd's Rest.
Shepherd's Rest is the perfect 'Away, But Not Too Far Away' destination in Wimberley. Only a short drive to all the best Wimberley has to offer including: Blue Hole Regional Park, Corral Outdoor Movie Theater, The Square, Market Days, Wimberley Glass Works, and local eateries.
There's also plenty to do at Shepherd's Rest without ever getting in a vehicle! Enjoy a short walk down to the Blanco River, a two minute walk. You'll find that this is truly the Wimberley Way - very relaxing and peaceful, a great family-friendly place to swim or lounge in a tube. Bring your river cowboy hat and floatie and beverage of your choice!
Shepherd's Rest is fabulous for the exercise enthusiast. Act like a local and enjoy walking, jogging, or cycling Flite Acres Road, Little Arkansas Road, or Little Ranches (it gets hilly fast!). Blue Hole Park also offers 4+ miles of easy trails for pedestrians and cyclists and a playground and basketball court for the kids.
Have a larger gathering in mind? Shepherd's Rest is adjacent to Shepherd's Lodge (VRBO#701591) which can be rented in conjunction with Shepherd's Rest to offer accommodations for up to 16 guests.
*Shepherd's Rest was not affected by the recent flooding. Blanco River access may be limited for a period while cleanup efforts are underway. The low water crossing which dammed up the river across from the house has been washed out. Blue Hole, a Texas treasure, is just minutes from the property and is perfect for convenient swimming access.
No smoking or pets are allowed on this property. Noise curfew in effect 9pm-8am. Enjoy your stay!
