About Cynthia Ramsay
My husband, Charles, and I have lived in Wimberley for 17 years. His family had one of the original camp houses on River Road when he was growing up in the 30s and 40s. It provided a place to get in the beautiful Blanco River and inspired us to build Ramsay House (also available here on HomeAway) and later we purchased Ramsay's Cozy Cottage - and now this newly built Laura’s River Lodge. Hosting has become my new full-time job, and I absolutely love it. Before this, I was a court reporter for twenty-five years, and hosting guests and making them happy is a lot more fun! Whenever I start to complain about anything, I just remember the tedious days of court reporting and visualize the happy smiles on my guests' faces when they arrive down here at the River at one of our places Edgewater. We were victims of the Memorial Day 2015 flood. Of the never-before-seen 50-foot wall of water, we had 11 feet of water in our home and bed and breakfast here on Edgewater Drive (built 2001) as well as 15 feet of water in our beloved cottage also along Edgewater. But not to worry. Everything is new, with no moldy smells at all detectable in our places. We appreciate your booking. We know you have many choices these days! Our top priority is your happiness once you've chosen one of our properties as a place for your vacation getaway. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I also have a dedicated co-host named Donna and a property manager and housekeeper, Leda. Thank you for your consideration! Warmest regards, Cynthia Ramsay

Why Cynthia Ramsay chose Wimberley
In a few words, we believe this property has it all, and we built it to be a short term rental that has it all. First and foremost, the beautiful Blanco River as well as two outstanding parks that are within a few paces of the lodge. All the other amenities are listed here, but I'll reiterate the hot tub, beautiful view of the river and the Wimberley Valley, grilling porch, full kitchen, beautiful furnishings and Ralph Lauren linens throughout. This home is elevated above the newly proposed flood plain. It is not wheelchair accessible. All dogs must be on a leash when outside because we have a leash law in our area, and we don't want them chasing other dogs or running at people. If your dog likes to jump up into beds or on the furniture, please leave them at home. We have nice linens and furnishings and dogs that get in the river and then want to curl up on our beautiful beds or furniture is not what we want for our pretty place. Thank you for understanding.
What makes this House unique
This is a one-of-a-kind property designed by me to be elevated above the newly proposed flood plane for safety, yet to be beautiful. There are FEMA approved flood vents in the lower level along with two garage spaces, storage and a grilling porch. The beautiful hand-made, carved posts came from Taos, New Mexico and were made just for Laura's Lodge. You won't find another property like this one!

This was the first time we've stayed at a rental such as Laura's Lodge. We always stayed at a hotel. I booked Laura's Lodge for my family to attend my son's "destination wedding" in Dripping Springs. We arrived, and the property was just as described, my family was very impressed. Our booking was for five days and each day we had a number of commitments, thus we were gone most of the days, returning in the evening. I wish we would have had a couple more days to just unwind and relax. The deck offers a great view of the river. Charles stopped in with a plate of cookies. Overall, we were VERY pleased. On a side note, my wife and I talked about reaching out to determine options for a long term options - wintering in Wimberly ??? Bottom line, we were very happy and highly recommend this property!
A Nicer Home Away from Home ;)
The owners were so responsive and the home was so welcoming and clean. It felt more like a home than a rental property. The swimming close by for my 3 kids was amazing. We actually booked a spot at Blue Hole, but ended up just swimming another day close to the rental because the swimming was great.
Fabulous house and views we had an amazing and relaxing weekend!
Great family vacation
This was our first family getaway vacation with our adult sons and their families. It was everything that was promised and we loved the river. Plenty of water toys to spend countless hours together.
Great family vacation
Our multi-generational family had a great time at this property! Cynthia was an excellent host, and all communication was very good. We really appreciated the well-appointed kitchen. The river park just down the street was a favorite spot, and the newly installed kayak launch ramp right across the street from the house was also great. No complaints! Beautiful spot
Idyllic Lodge retreat
We really enjoyed our stay at The Lodge. House was very clean, beds and pillows were comfy. Loved the little extra amenities like coffee, bath products, homemade cookies and lots of lake toys! A great place for vacationers of all ages!
We are a quaint town with the famous Market Days the first Saturday of every month. It's one of the best in Texas.
