  • So much fun!

    "We arrived at 4pm with my family and some family friends on a Wed. afternoon. I took a quick look around. The rooms were clean and large. The kitchen had everything we could need, we also had a well stocked video library in case we wanted to watch movies at night. Because it was getting late and no wanted to cook, we ran to the Salt Lick which was yummy. We go every time we come into Wimberley. The next 4 days were spent in the river. LOVED IT. The location is perfect to sit in the river in a beach chair, drink wine coolers and visit with friends. We went to town once, but honestly, the weather was gorgeous so we played like little kids in the Blanco sooo much fun. We so want to come back. We also had so much fun watching wildlife. One evening, a family of 8 deer came across the river....2 bucks, 3 does and 3 spotted fawn...adorable. They ate some corn we set out not 20 feet from us. When was the last time you saw a firefly. They're all over Wimberley!!! I'm watching for someone to cancel so we can come again. My only complaint was the internet/wifi. It was spotty and frustrating to use it if need be. My husband is a MD and he needed it from time to time, but all in all, it was ok. Oh, my older children also liked the outside house. They could go out there, play music loud, talk and play pool whenever they wanted to without being told to turn it down. There is also another set of washer dryers out there. Everything at this place is thought out. Loved it. We'll be back."

  • A Fisherman's Dream!!

    "The cabin was just as nice as the owner! It was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet and tucked away for a very peaceful weekend of fishing and birdwatching. We were able to launch our kayak's right from the bank (Muck boots came in handy since the water's edge is marshy), and kayak fished to our heart's content. Believe me, this part of the lake is packed with fish. If you like to fish, this place is a dream. The cabin is roomy and clean, with all the cooking utensils we needed for a good ole' fish fry. We will be back for sure!!!"

  • CHRISTMAS IN WIMBERLEY

    "Abundance Retreat is everything and so much more than what you see in the pictures or you read on the website. We were searching for a place that would feel like home and provide the warmth of the holiday spirits while being away from our home country. When we arrived to Abundance it was all we could have hope for. They have thought of every little detail that you can imagine. Tina & Shellye had the house beautifully decorated for us, we had a christmas tree, stockings and plenty of christmas decoration all through the home to make it feel just like home. They had a basket of toys ready with greeting treats for our four legged friends that accompanied us during the holiday. We would wake up early to feed the deer and watch the birds and squirrel visit us on the back porch, spent some wonderful time with the family outdoors kayaking, watching the dogs swim and by the fire at night. We spent lots of time enjoying the outdoor living space while smoking our Turkey and grilling meals through the week. We are looking forward to our next visit to Abundance Retreat."

  • Fabulous Family Weekend!!!

    "My family and I went to the lodge for an extended Labor Day Weekend. We had the best time!!! The house itself is AMAZING! The property is beautiful and we were able to fish, see the birds coming in to the bird feeders and enjoyed the deer. The house is decorated so cute. There was plenty of room for all 18 of us and the kitchen is stocked with so many pots and pans, utensils and assortments of dishes. This was by far one of the best places we have ever stayed! Also, dealing with Bob the owner was incredible. They are so sweet and accommodating when making reservations and getting into the house. We would recommend anyone looking for a great getaway to stay at the Lodge!!"

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
