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 Hill Country

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

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.
