About Jennifer and Gregory
Jennifer and Gregory love living in in the picturesque village of Wimberley and sharing their unique vacation rentals with their guests. Gregory is a woodworker and his handiwork is evident in each of their vacation homes. Jennifer is an art teacher and teaches small classes out of the studio behind their home. They have a large garden, chickens, cats, and a dog.
Jennifer and Gregory purchased this House in 2013
Why Jennifer and Gregory chose Wimberley
The Wimberley hill country has a special place in our hearts. We feel like we have our own little slice of hill country heaven and we love to share it with our guests. We are striving to restore the natural landscape of the property outside of the immediate area around the house to provide animal habitat, a healthy riparian landscape and privacy. Our guests often see foxes, deer, a variety of birds, and other wildlife. After we have good rains, the wet-weather creek is a lovely spot to watch for wildlife.
What makes this House unique
This home is the perfect gathering spot for families and groups of friends. The large yard complete with horseshoes, bbq, a hot tub under the veranda and fire pit make it an easy place to have fun, relax, and reconnect. We host many groups coming to Wimberley for weddings, girls' weekends, friend reunions and more. We'd love to host you!

Nice comfortable house. We will be back.
Experienced a relaxing time. There was no fire wood so we had to purchase. Hot tub needs to be serviced. It was not heating properly.
We just checked the hot tub and the breaker had just tripped. It's all good! We would have been happy to pop over to address it right away had we been alerted to the issue. For future guests: we very often have firewood to share, but sometimes run out between deliveries. Just call before you come and we'll let you know how the stack looks.
Nice get away
The owners were very easy to communicate with. Nice house, bed was super comfy, kitchen was stocked well. We loved the complimentary coffee and the coffee grinder. Yard is not completely fenced in. Close to a main highway so there is some street noise
Log Cabin in Wimberley
Cozy and warm log cabin wonderfully kept. Very close to downtown Wimberley and short distance to Jacobs well and several other attractions. Loved the history of the cabin pictures! Thank you for sharing your place with us. Made our trip for our son’s wedding that much more special.
Paper Moon is the Perfect Family Getaway!
Beautiful and quiet family getaway! Lots of space and well maintained! We will be scheduling our next visit soon!
Wonderful! We welcome you back any time!
Absolutely perfect for what I needed, BEAUTIFUL CABIN! In such a beautiful place!
Beautiful family retreat
The cabin was perfect. Everything we wanted! Very rural feel, yet so close to the wonderful Village of Wimberley. Well stocked and super clean. We saw several sweet deer on the property, too. Thank you, and we will be returning to this lovely cabin and village.
Thank you so much!
Wimberley is a fun place to stay with lots of great local activities. We leave a book of flyers for area restaurants and attractions in the house, but here are some of our favorites.
In the summer, we recommend taking a dip at one of the local swimming holes. We’ll leave a list of area swimming holes on the fridge, but Blue Hole is our favorite and its refreshing, spring-fed water is just 3 minutes away. Jacob's Well (reserve swim time at http://www.co.hays.tx.us/jwna.aspx) and The Blanco River (pay to park at Pioneer Town) are great choices as well. The Corral Theater is a lovely place to catch an outdoor movie on a Fri-Sun night. Bring a camp chair and enjoy the show! If you don’t mind driving over to San Marcos (20 min.), rent a tube from the Lion’s Club at City Park and tube the San Marcos River. You can tube 'the horseshoe' part of The Guadalupe River by renting tubes from The Tube Haus on FM 306 (20 min). The glass bottom boat rides at TX State’s Aquarena Center are really wonderful and educational, too!
There are several area wineries with beautiful grounds: The Driftwood Estate Winery, The Wimberley Valley Winery, and The Duchman Family Winery (and the Italian restaurant, Trattoria Lisina). There is also Bella Vista Ranch, a local olive orchard and olive oil producer. Their grounds, shop, and tasting room are open Mon, Thurs, Fri, and Sat.
Some of our other favorite activities include taking a hike up Old Baldy to watch the sun set, going ziplining at Wimberley Ziplines, visiting a local winery, grabbing a yummy house-brewed pint at Middleton Brewing or Wimberley Brewing Company, taking a jog or walk along the hike and bike trail at Blue Hole Regional Park, catching some live music at Cypress Creek Cafe’s Buzzard Bar, Linda’s Fine Foods, or Ino’z, and taking a morning or evening drive along The Devil’s Backbone (Hwy 32). We also love day trips to Pedernales Falls State Park (about 40 minutes away) or Luckenbach/Fredericksburg/Enchanted Rock (about 1/1.5 hrs away). Guests also ask about local hiking trails, and San Marcos has several greenbelts that are great spots for a hike: http://smgreenbelt.org/SMNaturalAreas.htm. Our local Blue Hole Park also has some nature trails and a three mile one way hike and bike trail.
For dining, we highly recommend The Leaning Pear and Jobell on RR12 just outside of the town center. They're both really yummy! The Salt Lick BBQ is a fantastic choice, located about 15 minutes away in Driftwood. Trattoria Lisina is also in Driftwood, and it’s a great for a more elegant dinner. It’s located on the grounds of the Duchman Family Winery, which is beautiful. Other Wimberley restaurants include: Brewster’s Pizza (gluten-free and dairy-free options), I’noz (average food, but nice setting on Cypress Creek & live music on weekend nights), Kate’s Place, Linda’s Fine Foods, San Angel Mexican Restaurant, Marco’s Italian, Wimberley Café (popular for breakfast), and Cypress Creek Café. You can also pick up good breakfast tacos at Shamrock Tacos. We do our best to keep updated menus for these restaurants in a binder in the house.
