This is a charming stone cottage that sits on 15 acres just three miles from the downtown square in Wimberley. It is a two bedroom/one bathroom facility with a full kitchen and updated amenities. It also has separate swimming pool and cabana area with a full bathroom/changing facilities and covered entertainment area.
It is just a short five minute walk to the Blanco river on a quiet, flat rural road. There is also a large firepit area ideal for outdoor evenings by the fire. It is an ideal location for families or just a weekend getaway.
"Our trip was to celebrate our Ten Year Wedding Anniversary with friends. We visited our usual spots - Driftwood Estate Winery, Wimberley Valley Winery, Bella Vista, Wine Shop, Ino'z Brew 'N Chew, Trattoria Lisina in Driftwood & The Leaning Pear Restaurant. All AWESOME!! Took our pooches to Driftwood. Enjoyed the Hot Tub, Firepit & the stars at night were beautiful. This is a beautiful home & surrounding property provides lots of room to walk around & enjoy nature. Perfect get away!"
I rented this cottage for a three night retreat with a girlfriend. There was no coffee, filters, nothing, not even a trash can in the kitchen. The dishes were like garage sale rejects, one wine glass, and the place needs painting, bedside tables and lamps in the second bedroom. For the price, I would never stay here again. FYI- for children/pool usage. The pool is about 75 yards away, not close to the house.
Loved the privacy of this secluded country cottage near Wimberly! The pool was nice and we swam daily over the 3 days we were there. We saw some deer most days. It was very hot outside but cool in the cottage. The pictures accurately represent the place, although the pool was further away from the house than we expected. This was not a problem, though. It was clean. No complaints there. It is a rustic sort of place, not a luxury condo, but that is what we expected, so we were not disappointed.
It could use a few more kitchen towels and supplies, if you plan to cook there; i.e., no salt or foil, and only 1 roll of paper towels were there). The propane grill by the pool was nice, but had to light with matches. Pool was pretty clean but self-cleaning robot seemed to have some problems. There are some electrical issues they should fix such as the barely hanging ceiling fan in smaller bedroom, hanging by one wire.
Overall, I would recommend the place and we probably will want to go back again sometime!
The photos do not portray this property as it does not show all the things that need to be fixed...pool was dirty, solar lights were all busted with glass everywhere and the fire pit seating area was a mess. Broken metal slider around burn pit. Ceiling fan in the bedroom fell apart at midnight and the light hung from the cords. Bathroom sink faucet leaks badly. The bathtub is dangerously slick! Seating in the living room is torn and worn, needs better seating and there is no lighting in there at all. Pool House kitchen area was filthy. Furniture on the porch has stained, dirty, and very uncomfortable cushions so there is no place nice to sit. Screens are damaged and looks like someone tried to break in at some point. Had this place lived up to it's description we would have all told our friends, who are planning trips to Wimberley to stay here but now we will tell them to avoid it. If the owner or manager would review the comment book they would know that many have said the same thing! Great potential but it needs a lot of work! We were terribly disappointed for the price as it did not match the property at all. We voted to not write in the comment book but to put our comments here instead. At the bottom of this review is asks who we would recommend this property to ... No One! The Manager of the property was called and advised of our concerns.
This wonderful, secluded home in the woods of Wimberley was a fantastic place to stay. We use VRBO on a monthly basis and these beds were the most comfortable yet!! From the wildlife to relaxing around the firepit, what a great place to spend the weekend! Wish we had gotten to stay longer!!
This is a great find – a repeatable destination. The beds are fabulous, house is clean, pool is perfect temperature, local skunk is well fed, owners make renting very simple, and the deer are plentiful. House and pool are privately set on the property away from neighbors.
What isn't mentioned in the description of this property is the possibility of wonderful encounters with the wildlife of the Wimberley valley. One night we took a walk in the early dark to enjoy the fireflies, a skunk walked by, and minutes later a herd of feral pigs came running through. Even driving up for the first time to the house, deer were all around, perking their ears up, watching us approach. Very, very magical!
Located across the street from the Blanco River.
