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 Shepherd's Lodge (VRBO#701591) which can be rented in conjunction with Shepherd's Rest to offer accommodations for up to 16 guests.

No smoking or pets are allowed on this property. Please note that the fireplace is not functional. There is a limit of 2 vehicles unless otherwise approved.

Noise curfew in effect 9pm-8am.

Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this little house. Perfect for a weekend getaway. The spacious backyard is great for just hanging out, having a picnic, and letting your kids run around while you grill outback. Love having the river just a short walk away. This was our second stay and we will be back!

Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described. The beds were very comfortable. The proximity to town was great with easy access to the great town of Wimberley. There was a bit of a ripple in the living room floor where there was water damage or foundation settling; it was enough to create a walking /tripping hazard. The hot tub was nice but over chlorinated. All in all enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming and enjoying the house. We have fixed the little bump in the floor and it's smooth again. The hot tub has been drained and refilled. :) Please come back again and enjoy all that Wimberley has to offer. We've also added a ping pong table too.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This property was out in the country on several acres. Very relaxing. Deer everywhere. It is walking distance to the river and very close to town. It has a private hot tub out in the back. I would stay here again.

Road Trip with Granddaughter

  • 5 of 5

This was a before school starts road trip with my oldest granddaughter (16). She had heard my stories of Wimberley and the Blue Hole, her choice! The Shepherds Rest was perfect for us..in fact she & I had little down time.

From grilling homemade pizza on the gas grill (hint: turn on the gas valve behind the pit, it is hooked up to the house propane tank, genius), enjoying the hot tub after long shopping trips on the square (town only 2-3 min drive) and we had a chance to enjoy some Blue Hole swimming (5 min. drive). The water at the Hole was approx. 60*, crystal clear, but she could not get me to jump from the ropes...lol Played darts, got challenged to a ping pong game, but sorry there were no balls to be found? Took a short walk to the Blanco River (right across street)

The house is in excellent shape, bedding comfortable, fully equipped kitchen, good water pressure for showers and plenty of towels. You almost do not need to leave the property. Location, location, location...

Customer service is A+, Aaron was very helpful on my only call to ask "where's the propane tank for the grill?" immediate response, even checked on us Saturday...book it 7 enjoy.

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great property and a short walk to the river which we seemed to have mostly to ourselves. Short drive to the wonderful downtown area as well. A great weekend getaway for our family!
