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

WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE!!

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!!!

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!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We try to take a family vacation each year with our children and grandchildren. Colorado was always my favorite of the trips we had taken until we found Rim Rock Lodge! We were able to do a great 4-day family vacation with little travel expense, and my kids are already planning for next years vacation at Rim Rock Lodge. :-)

Although there is much to do in the area, we chose to use this beautiful home as a destination. It was a hot weekend but no one even noticed thanks to the beautiful pool, shaded porches and paths, and game and theater rooms.

My three children and their spouses took turns preparing a meal which was especially nice for me! We had hamburgers/hotdogs. steaks, and fajitas - all prepared with no problem in the well-stocked inside and outside kitchens. We roasted marshmallows, ate s'mores and sang around the well-constructed and beautiful fire pit. Peaceful, happy memories.

The beautiful vistas and lovely home and grounds provided lots of photo ops and I have already put together photo books for each of the children and grandchildren. I know they will look at the books with happy memories for years to come.

The pool and outdoor kitchen areas were securely gated - just another example of how the owners have made the property kid-friendly (or maybe I should say parent and grandparent friendly!).

Peggy was the perfect lodge owner, answering my many questions and immediately taking take of requests. I have never met her and yet I was always so comfortable contacting her! :-) Peggy and Phil have wonderful staff support. The home was clean and ready when we arrived even though guests checked out on the same day we arrived. At one point Peggy sent her terrific handyman over to take care of something - he was so kind and so helpful. Also her local manager was always available by text to answer questions and help. The owners and staff seem dedicated to ensuring that all guests have a wonderful time.

The layout of the house is perfect. My husband and I took the incredible master suite, and my daughter-in-law's mother was next door to us in the junior master suite. All of the kids and grandchildren were in the 4 bedrooms at the other end of the house which open onto a common hallway, allowing plenty of time for the grandchildren to be with each other. The living room furniture was so comfortable for those rare occasions when we were inside - mostly lazy morning moments and relaxing busy days!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for. We just wanted to get away for a few days and have fun as a family and Rim Rock was the perfect place to do it. The house is immaculate and has plenty of room to spread out. The great room is perfect for large meals and watching the sun set. The pool was clean and safe with a gate around the perimeter. We spent a few hours there each day and enjoyed the hot tub after the kids went to bed. The kids hung out in the new gameroom while we made meals and we all learned a new game or two. The movie theater is really well done -- bring a movie the family hasn't seen yet and make some memories! Oh, and buy some deer corn while you're in town -- we got to see a couple of bucks grazing at the back of the property on our last day there. Most people will probably make Rim Rock their base for exploring the Hill Country, but we treated it like a destination. We stayed three nights and only left once to bring back ice cream. Our four kids range in age from 10 down to 1 and they all had a blast and wanted to stay longer. We highly recommend it and would love to come back with friends.

Superb couples weekend

  • 5 of 5

Didn't want to leave, we had so much fun on Memorial weekend 2012. 6 professional couples spending 3 nights together all in our late 20's-30's. The parents left the kids at home for this weekend but the house is great for families too. The house is set up great. It sits on a very private multi acerage lot with views of the hills. Lots of room for everyone to have their space with the 6 bedrooms. All of the rooms are comfortable. Their are essentially two master bedrooms, I stayed in the second master with my wife after the group had a lottery for room choices. Our room had a comfortable king bed with clean, expensive bedding. I slept great. We had a private bathroom also. The Master is great too. The other bedrooms had queens and shared bathrooms. The kitchen was a great space to cook in. Plenty of silverware, pots, pans, etc. We cooked here for breakfest and dinners, meals for 12 were a piece of cake. The outdoor kitchen and gazebo area was equally awesome. I grilled 3 times and it was easy. Bring your own propane. Big grill. Great area to hang out. Their are two large friges and a small ice maker in the house. The living room is open with great views and comfy couches, big tv. Their are two tables so 12 people can eat in the dining area inside.

Outdoor facilities are better than inside. The porch is so awesome. They have 12 man sized rocking chairs and a couple tables. Surround sound everywhere. Our group spent the most time just hanging out on the back patio. The view is so calming and I really felt at ease. So relaxing and a welcomed release from the hussle of corporate america.

The pool was our daily hangout, lots of lounge chairs and a shallow pool for relaxing. The pool is securely gated so it would be safe for little kids. Pool was cleaned twice upon me calling requesting it to be cleaned due to a pump backing up. They responded immediately, couldn't ask for more. The jacuzzi was clean.

The fire pit is great, bring your own wood. I used the sauna and it worked well. Just finding the starter under the heater was tricky.

Simply a great house. Our entire group of picky, well traveled couples all agreed that they would come back. That's a miracle. It is worth the money. 4 Star accomodations.

Lots of good food and wine equals fine time. You won't leave the house!

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to the Collins for being such responsive, helpful and friendly owners. This is the best rental in the area.

I hope to come back.
