                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Peggy and Phil Collins bought this land in 2008 and starting building in about September of that year. We finished the house in March of 2009 and then spent about 6 months completing all of the outdoor living projects. The house was Built by Bill Dunn Construction and the house was built to the highest quality standards that you can imagine. We feel that we have really created something special and are sure that you will feel the same way that we do. This is our third vacation property in the Wimberley/San Marcos area and we are really excited about what we have accomplished. The photo is of Peggy and I in Shanghai in May of 2009.

                  Why the Owner Chose San Marcos:
                  Once you see the view from the back porch, or from the covered pavilion, or from the hot tub, or the sauna, or anywhere in the back yard, there will be no question as to why we decided on this location. The two comments that we hear from everyone are, 'That is a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW' or 'THAT is THE BEST view in Wimberley and/or Hays County'. Come see for yourself.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Why is this property so successful? * Million dollar view. * Private estate allows peace and quiet. * High end luxury in the construction and furnishings. * 3 fireplaces, hot tub, sauna, firepit. * Full outdoor kitchen and covered pavilion. * 11 TVs with cable and premium channels. * 6 basket disc golf course * A pool area nicer than most resorts. * Fully furnished with everything you need. * Incredible Game Room and Theater Room. The Main Reason for our Success - is that Peggy and I built this for our families use. We made it nice for us, and now everyone can share in this. This property is big enough to accommodate a large group, but allows so many places for people to be, that you are not crowded or bumping into each other. The new game room is a great addition to this property, and we are very excited about it. Thank you for considering Rim Rock Lodge, and we are confident that it will be a great decision for you.
