SHEPHERDS REST - a SkyRun Texas Property

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 drive down to Blue Hole for a swim. 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 our beautiful Shepherd's Lodge property, which can be rented in conjunction with Shepherd's Rest to offer accommodations for up to 16 guests.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property. No smoking or pets are allowed. Please note that the fireplace is not functional. There is a limit of 2 vehicles unless otherwise approved.

Quaint place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time there. Had 2 remotes for the tv in the king bedroom, but not sure why - only Roku remote operated the tv. Queen bedroom was a little warm at night even with the fan. We didn’t spend a lot of time in the house, but we did enjoy our stay overall.

Beautiful, Quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the area and would like to come back again to do things we may have missed. Wimberley is a beautiful area to be enjoyed by all. The house is a little older. They could stand to do a few repairs and maybe a spring clean to collect the cobwebs and dusty fans. Otherwise, it has all the charm you’re looking for in a Wimberely vacation.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was awesome! Very nice retreat, everything is close to the home. We loved the deer that walked onto the lawn in the mornings and evenings. The town shuts down pretty earlier so get out early to enjoy what Wimberly has to offer. We visited San Marcos which is 15 minutes away to float the San Marcos River (Blanco was pretty low). Overall we loved it!!!! Wish we could've stayed longer!!!! Please visit the Blue Hole and Jacobs Well they were awesome!!!!!

Great little get away!

  • 5 of 5

Spend a long weekend here for Father's Day and absolutely loved it. Nice big lot so you don't feel crowded. Got to sit on the front porch and listen to rain on the tin roof and drink coffee while the boys slept in one morning, which was great. Our kids loved seeing deer, turkey, and other wildlife in the yard and playing darts and ping pong. Great location...close to town, but you still feel out in nature. We will definitely be back, and might even rent the sister house on the adjacent lot with my sister and her family. Thanks so much for sharing your house!
