About Shiloh Collins

Peggy and Phil Collins bought this land in 2008 and starting building in about September of that year. We finished the house in March of 2009 and then spent about 6 months completing all of the outdoor living projects. The house was Built by Bill Dunn Construction and the house was built to the highest quality standards that you can imagine. We feel that we have really created something special and are sure that you will feel the same way that we do. This is our third vacation property in the Wimberley/San Marcos area and we are really excited about what we have accomplished. The photo is of Peggy and I in Shanghai in May of 2009.

Shiloh Collins purchased this house in 2008

Why Shiloh Collins chose Wimberley

Once you see the view from the back porch, or from the covered pavilion, or from the hot tub, or the sauna, or anywhere in the back yard, there will be no question as to why we decided on this location. The two comments that we hear from everyone are, 'That is a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW' or 'THAT is THE BEST view in Wimberley and/or Hays County'. Come see for yourself.

What makes this house unique

Why is this property so successful?

* The Number One Reason for Success at all of our properties is that we have very large homes that allow large groups or families to all be together, but everything is SPREAD OUT so that you are not underfoot all the time, and can still have privacy in your large group.

* Million dollar view.

* Private estate allows peace and quiet.

* High end luxury in the construction and furnishings.

* 3 fireplaces, hot tub, sauna, firepit.

* Full outdoor kitchen and covered pavilion.

* 11 TVs with cable and premium channels.

* 6 basket disc golf course

* A pool area nicer than most resorts.

* Fully furnished with everything you need.

* Incredible Game Room and 3 tiered Theater Room with 9 leather lay out seats.

The Main Reason for our Success - is that Peggy and I built this for our families use. We made it nice for us, and now everyone can share in this. This property is big enough to accommodate a large group, but allows so many places for people to be, that you are not crowded or bumping into each other. The new game room is a great addition to this property, and we are very excited about it. Thank you for considering Rim Rock Lodge, and we are confident that it will be a great decision for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner


A dozen or so girlfriends since high school (class of 1964) have been getting together each year for about 40 years and we found our perfect place at RRR several years ago. RRR is a lovely furnished and spacious one story ranch house with an amazing view of the hills and no bunk beds - that’s important for women of our age. The back pork is filled with rocking chairs where we start our day with coffee and end our day with wine. The amenities of this place are even better than what you see in the photos and we LOVE cooking in the well stocked kitchen. I’ve stayed in vacation rentals around the world and this one is by far the best for the buck. Add to that the competent and friendly family owned property managers and it’s a perfect getaway!!!

Beautiful views & lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a weekend get together with my husband’s parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, so we had a group of varying ages. The kids loved playing in the game room and jumping in the pool. The adults relaxed sitting on the rocking chairs on the back patio while enjoying the views. The kitchens were well equipped and we used the grills to feed a crowd. There is plenty of space so it never felt too crowded. Close to Wimberley and San Marcos

Absolutely wonderful, everyone was excited.

  • 5 of 5

The new additions to Rim Rock were amazing, we will definitely be a returning client.

When we arrived, everyone was expressing "we're home" and we were not disappointed.

One small thing that could be improved is the WiFi, depending on we where we were located inside the house depended on whether we were able to connect.

From the handling of the reservations, to the meeting with the property manager, to the actual long weekend at Rim Rock - it was all First Class!

The Lodge was immaculately clean and the appointments in the rooms were off the charts! Can't say enough about the whole Rim Rock Lodge experience. We will be back!
