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!

We enjoyed the rustic setting and atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Shepherd’s Rest! The cabin was uniquely decorated and very homey! It was perfect for two couples! We really enjoyed the hot tub area and front porch and wild life! The only feature we missed was not being able to enjoy a fire in the rustic fireplace since it was very cold in January. It would have added ambiance and warmth to our stay!

Beautiful home

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the Shepherd’s Nest for our 10 year anniversary! The home is absolutely gorgeous! The living room floor was very unstable with a lot of “give”! Both beds were incredibly uncomforatable.

Great Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay! Loved the large lawn space and unique hot tub area under the stars. We've been traveling to Wimberley for years and it never disappoints to get out of the city for awhile.

Great Little Cottage

We stayed for a girl's weekend. The cottage was the perfect size and had everything we needed. The place was extremely clean. We also enjoyed soaking in the hot tub! I would highly recommend this place to others!
