Retreat away from it all on over six acres of hill country property, located in the middle of the tri -towns of Wimberley, Blanco. and Dripping Springs. This country stone cottage is nestled among oak trees at the foot of a hill. Sit on the back deck and watch the deer and birds, walk to the wet weather creek, or sit around the fire pit and star gaze. The quiet neighborhood provides a great scenic walk along the country road, viewing the Devil's Backbone.
The house has a large master bedroom suite which features a catheral ceiling and includes a garden tub and separate shower. Enjoy a spacious den with cathedral ceiling and iron stove fireplace. The two guest bedrooms share a hallway bathroom. Dine on the back deck or on outdoor tables under the trees.
I live in the Montrose area of Houston, Texas with my two sons, ages 18 and 20, dog Axel, and cat, Sophie. I am a Louisiana native, and moved to Texas at age 22.
Annette Ginn Raj purchased this cottage in 2001
My family bought the property when our sons were 5 and 7 years old. Having grown up in small towns in Louisiana, Houston has always overtaken me. I wanted a quiet place to take the boys, so that they could roam around and be outdoors. I knew I wanted property in the hill country, and looked between Vanderpool and Wimberley for two years. We chose Wimberley because friends moved there. I thought I wanted a grand hill view. However, I am a tree lover and privacy freak as well. The hill view properties that we looked at didn't have many trees and felt exposed. The minute I saw the property, I knew it was THE ONE. There are beautiful rolling hills leading up to the property - great views surrounding the neighborhood. The property itself has a strand of trees in the front, with the house set back about mid-way, so it is very private. There are oaks surrounding the property, with a pasture that leads to the creek. Across the creek is a bluff. Walking to the top of the bluff provides a beautiful view of the hills. For me, this property has everything I want: seclusion, quiet, trees, hills and sometimes, water!
I fell in love with this property because of the trees, quiet, privacy, and surrounding hills. My favorite morning coffee spot is to sit on the adirondack bench which looks into a cathedral of trees, with a view of the pasture. My favorite ritual is to walk the perimeter of the property, climb up the bluff and sit on a rock to look at the hills, and slosh through the creek when it is running. There is a table under oak trees for dining. The covered back porch provides a great reading nook, or a place to sit and enjoy the breeze and sound when it is raining. On a clear night, there is a fantastic star view. The neighborhood country roads are quiet and safe for walking or bikeriding, while looking at the surrounding trees, hills, and creeks...or walking with someone you love!
Our group really enjoyed our stay here. Wifi and cell phone service was patchy but owner mentions this and we had no issue with it. We did not even turn the tv on! This was the perfect getaway spot to relax, unwind and bond with family and friends. The owner was very easy to deal with. My family is already trying to figure out a date to come back! 😊
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, this is the place. Beautiful property and nicely decorated home. We sat on the back deck in the mornings enjoying our coffee and watching the deer wander across the property. Stopping by the grocery on the way in will save you a trip back into town. Nice, large fridge, pantry, and full kitchen (plus microwave). Comfy beds, nice large towels. Definitely recommend for a family vacation or even just a weekend getaway.
The property is pretty secluded except for the neighbors across the fence but the property is still very private. Accommodations were good, beds comfortable and a great back porch. Only drawbacks were there is no TV reception and the air took quite a while to cool the house.
I would recommend to others.
First of all, the owner response and help was outstanding. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and we had my in-laws in the cabin. Everything outside is amazing. It has a creek within the property and the children enjoyed playing out. Inside the house it is a little bit rustic but you can bring in what you need, other than the basic. You are right in the middle of all places you might want to visit like State Parks and Water parks.Thank you Annette for letting us celebrate in your cabin.
Our first visit to this area was a great experience, mainly due to the wondeful accommodations. This property lies secluded, nestled among beautiful, nature oaks. The house is comfortable, warm (we visited over the Christmas Holidays), inviting, fully furnished, comfortable bed, great master bath with large tub and separate shower. Kitchen leaves nothing to be desired, just get in and start cooking. The large deck at the back of the house invites you to relax on a rocking chair, sip your coffee, while watching deer and turkey and listen to the birds. The night skies are spectacular. We enjoyed the quiet and stillness most of all - made us think we were the only ones on the planet. Very nice owner to work with, very helpful by staying in touch, sending links to nearby attractions, favorite eating spots and shopping. Close enough to Wimberley to take in the towns attractions. For us, it was the seclusion, the disconnect from daily life we found most attractive. We hope to visit again soon and can recommend this property wholeheartedly.
We could not be happier with our recent stay. The house was super clean and well located, only 15 minutes away from Wimberly. The owner was very responsive and sent useful links for what to do while in town. I highly recommend it as we are planning on coming back.
The property is between 3 towns: Wimberley, 15 miles; Blanco, 12.5 miles, and Dripping Springs, 18.5 miles. The closest grocery store is in Blanco, 12 miles away. There are libraries in both Wimberley and Blanco. Wimberley has one of the best swim holes in the country: The Blue Hole. Wimberley hosts a flea market the first weekend of every month. Wimberley has an outdoor movie theater, the Corral Theater, which shows movies in the summer. The Emily Ann outdoor Theatre hosts plays; there is also an indoor playhouse. There is live music every weekend in Wimberley and sometimes in Blanco; check the internet. There is a C&W dancehall in Dripping Springs; about a 20 minute drive. There are several local wineries.
