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.

Noise curfew in effect 9pm-8am.

Enjoy your stay with SkyRun Vacation Rentals!

Cool old house, great location

  • 4 of 5

It was really nice! I love the house, it felt like it had a lot of history. Very clean and comfortable. The area out back was fun to play darts and barbecue in. It was a perfect location to get to all the cool hill country stuff. The only thing that could be improved is some appliance upgrades - we were unable to use the washing machine. That said, guest services was very helpful and when we contacted them brought us some extra clean towels. Thank you! 👍🏻

Sister weekend

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my stay very much. The place was clean, very well kept up. Had so much charm and personality. Hot tub worked great and the lighting at night was awesome. We did take advantage of the grill and ping pong table. Sat around and just talked and had a great and blessed weekend with my sister.

I would say my only complaint was that we really had no specific access or information on how to get to the river. And, if so not real clear on the website. We did have a little trouble with getting the tv to work, but the next day it worked. Maybe that was just a fluke and we can blame that on the satellite.

But, I do say thank you for renting us your place. We did enjoy ourselves a bunch and looking forward to visiting next summer.

Great family friendly getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Shepherd's Rest! The house had everything we needed (even a pack-n-play in the closet)! The living room set up was comfortable for 4 adults and 2 toddlers - they had plenty of room to play. The beds were comfy too! The outdoor space was fantastic, but it was the hottest weekend of the year when we were there so we didn't get to enjoy it as we had hoped. I did make use of the grill the first night we were there, and it looked like it was almost brand new. The kids did play a little bit outside one morning and enjoyed all of the kid friendly toys. The house was convenient to town and just a few minutes drive to Blue Hole, which was super fun! Sky Run was also super quick to respond to our request to check in early the day we arrived and were happy to accommodate us. I would highly recommend staying here!

Quiet, country setting

  • 4 of 5

Nicely remodeled old stone house, comfortable beds, good water pressure, good AC, clean. A ceiling fan on the front porch would be a wonderful addition for hot summer nights.

Great family home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Shepherd's Rest. The house was clean and had anything that we needed. The hot tub was unfortunately pretty luke warm and never did warm up over 97 degrees, even the second night. We enjoyed it anyway! There are lots of activities for the kids: basketball, a sand box, swings, a hammock, darts and ping pong. We used the very last and very smashed ball, however. The yard is huge! The dryer did not dry very well and the washer takes a long time, so plan ahead. We had our meals on the giant covered porch, and the living room furniture as well as the beds were very comfortable. It is a five minute drive into Wimberly and a few steps to the river, although it is pretty washed out from the flood last year. Don't miss Blue Hole and Old Baldy!
