About Shiloh Collins

We decided that we wanted to make Wimberley our home about 6 years ago. We had three boys in High School in Tomball, so it would still be a few years before we could move up here. We bought our first vacation rental property in Wimberley on the Blanco River ( The Great Escape ) in 2006. We bought our second rental property in Wimberley on 12 acres overlooking Wimberley Valley ( Sunset Ridge Escape ) in late 2007. During this time, we were looking for a place for us to move into, when we got our kids out of high school.

Shiloh Collins purchased this house in 2008

Why Shiloh Collins chose Hill Country

Phil and Peggy Collins bought this raw land in 2008 after looking for three years to find the best view in Hayes County. Rim Rock Lodge is absolutely the best view you can find in the county. We built this house for us to enjoy, so we kind of took things 'over the top' on this property. The view alone will make this worthwhile, but add in an incredible house, over 4,000 sq ft of rock work outside, a killer outdoor kitchen, furnishings that we have collected around the world, an entire package of outside and inside that makes this house an entertaining paradise!! All you will ever say is Wow! Please enjoy our home as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a great time and beautiful place to spend our Casey family reunion! It was hard to make ourselves venture out to see the sights when we had such an amazing house as our home base. Loved it! Hope to be back next year to celebrate our dad's 93rd birthday!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rim Rock Lodge to bring family together to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Texas State. With family living in different states we needed a place we could all stay, celebrate her achievement and spend time together...other than hotel rooms. It was perfect! Plenty of space to accommodate us all. It was the relaxing time we were hoping for. Best of all the home felt like a home. In fact our 4 year old grandson referred to it has "our new home". The Christmas tree and simple decorations also made us feel like we were spending Christmas with extended family - something we have not been able to do in years. We made good use of the media room and game room. Our grandson even took a dip in the pool in December. The location between Texas State and Wymberley was perfect as well. The home was well stocked and had everything we needed and more.

I also want to state that the owner and everyone involved in the reservation process were wonderful to work with. Very responsive and understanding our needs. Excellent customer service. Our only regret is we had to leave and come home.

Best House in the Hill Country!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this house for the past two summers and we are already booked for next summer. We've been renting homes in the Wimberley area for 8 years and no other property comes close to this one. The property easily accommodates a large group and there's something for everyone to do (game room, pool tables, pool, movie room). Fantastic property with views of the hill country that can't be described or conveyed in pictures. You have to see this place for yourself.

Daughter's 25th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We rented this fabulous place for my daughter's 25th birthday. In all I think we ended up with 14 total and this house did not disappoint in lodging or amenities. It's sometimes hard to get a group of people together (male & female, ranging in age from 25-60) and find a place where everyone was entertained. Whether swimming in the pool, soaking in the hot tub, watching movies in the theater room, playing pool (or any of the other numerous games offered in the game) or just sitting on the porch or around the fire pit...the fun is endless!!!

I can't wait to go back.

From all of the guests: Best Memorial weekend ever! Lubbock, TX, Midland, TX, San Antonio, TX, Austin, TX

P.S. Great place to take selfies with the selfie stick – sweet.

Just a side note: This was the weekend of the horrible flood in Wimberly; however we were unaware of the devastation going on just a few miles down the road. I did appreciate the call we received from the property manager the next day to check on us and make sure we didn't encounter any problems.

Perfect for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at Rim Rock Ranch with a dozen family members, ranging in age from 20 to 83. The house and its amenities have something for everyone. There is a feeling of being out away from everything while still having the comforts of home; the 'wilds' are available within a few steps but the needs and wants are within arms' reach. The property is clearly well managed and KC was great to work with - communicative, responsive, and friendly. The bottom line - we made our reservation for next year before we left!
