This is the time of the year when memories are made. The views from the couch to the hills in the distance are spectacular. We are isolated from any neighbors, so views to the distant horizon makes you feel like you are the only one who can see nature unfold. Herds of deer gather aplenty in the fields and a rafter of turkeys cross the dam to seek food. Coyotes howl in the hills. Winter in the Hill Country can be fiercely beautiful. You will be only eight miles from Downtown Wimberley, but a world away. You probably won't meet another person on your stay.
In May you may be lucky to spot beautiful pink roses growing on the dam - out of the reach of hungry deer. One day an elderly woman greeted my friend at the creek, explaining that she had grown up there, swimming and playing on hot summer days, long before any of us discovered this paradise. She explained that her father had planted those roses, some ninety years previous, in the perfect spot apparently as they are thriving there today. We named this special place after her and her daddy's roses, so named The River Rose Retreat, where you and yours can drink in the unique and restorative smells, sounds, and eye candy, the absolute best of the Texas hill country.
This beautifully hand designed property depicts why we all love the Texas hill country. Multi leveled decks, porches a plenty and paths/benches/walls that are intricately hand lain with local rocks. Its such a delight to explore this unique property.
This property is pet friendly. So bring along your WHOLE family on your next vacation!
The kitchen is fully stocked with absolutely anything you need to prepare your meals away from home. A private BBQ pit is available at each house.
The creek access is just a short walk out the side door. The path is constructed with the natural landscape so care should be taken when walking down to the creek.
The best part of this home is the fantastic elevated covered back porch with views of the creek and horizon. We have two dams with waterfalls to lull you to sleep.
