The Log Cabin Getaway is just that - a quaint, comfortable, but beautifully appointed vacation home in the peaceful town of Wimberley. It is perfect for a family retreat, girls get-away, or couple's weekend in a tranquil setting. Lounge under the canopy of trees, watch the deer, or walk from the backyard across the street about 150 yards to the Blanco River.
With over 1650 square feet, the cabin is spacious and has a great floor plan with room for everyone. The 3 bedroom house has 1 bedroom downstairs with a queen size bed. There is a full bath with a claw foot tub/shower. The large den has a sleeper sofa with a queen size memory foam mattress.
The very large master bedroom upstairs has a comfy queen bed. The third bedroom upstairs has a full size bed.. Both bedrooms share a bathroom with an unique skylight and river rock tile in the shower.
The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you need to prepare meals for your group. The round dining table seats 6 and the drop leaf table in the den allows for more dining or a convenient desk. Check out the cute tree truck stools! My grandkids love them.
Did I mention all the necessities?: Central air/heat, nice ceiling fans, Wi-Fi, good hot water supply, washer/dryer, cozy beds, gas grill...and always coffee! Smore's fixins are ready for you in the kitchen so you can sit around the campfire. We think smore's are necessary!
The Old Glory Ranch is only a mile down the road as well as 7A Ranch/Pioneer Town. The town square of Wimberley which is full of great shops and restaurants is only a 3.2 mile drive away along the beautiful Blanco River. Market days, which is the largest outdoor market in Texas Hill Country, is held the first Saturday of the month (March - December) and less than 10 minutes away. Don't forget Blue Hole, Jacob's Well, Hamilton Pool and the many wineries in the area. Try the Wimberley Zip Line to get the best views of the area!
Our property has access to two private river parks. Across River Road you will find one of the few "deep water" swimming holes in the area where you can try out the rope swing. By car, drive just down the road to the second spot where a gradual beach front and picnic tables are family friendly. Ride the small rapids here again and again. Our family does!
Fire up the gas grill, cook s'mores at the fire pit, relax in the hammock or swing in the large wooden swing under the outside string lights. With its peaceful setting and unique features, you will never want to leave the Log Cabin Get Away!

About Denise & Jim
As Air Force brats, moving to different cities was just a part of life. As a matter of fact, while I was born in Florida, my husband was born in California. When we were stationed in Hawaii, his family was stationed in Alaska. Somehow we both landed in Biloxi, Mississippi and began our lives together. We love to vacation and have traveled many places around the world. What fun to experience the unique customs, local food, art, music, and the people. There is nothing better than discovering what makes a place so special.
Denise & Jim purchased this House in 2016

Great weekend retreat within a short drive of Austin
This was the perfect weekend getaway for a group of 7 guys. Fire pit, grill, river access and a big screen TV with satellite to feel connected to the outside world (through the NBA playoffs). Would highly recommend this place and would return again.
Very Comfortable and Charming
We enjoyed a long weekend in this spacious, clean cabin - fire pit and garden areas were great, and easy walk over to the Blanco. We had everything we needed! The only drawback - the walls are paper-thin and you can hear upstairs conversations, etc when you are down, and visa versa.
Would definitely stay here again sometime.
Lovely little get-away!
The cabin was great and it was clear the hosts take care to keep everything clean and organized. We had a fantastic visit.
We had a wonderful time. Great family reunion!
The Log Cabin Get Away was the perfect place to have the whole family meet. We live all over the US so the times we can all get together are very special and the Cabin made it even more special. It is so lovely, the details and decor is charming. It was very comfortable and homey. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed cooking wonderful meals. In the evenings we sat around the bonfire and during the day enjoyed long walks by the river. We are planning to come again next year.
We are very honored that your family would consider spending your valuable vacation time at The Log Cabin Get Away.
We understand how difficult it may be to coordinate family time but also how important it is to secure those bonds.
Thank you for choosing our little place.
Great way to spend Christmas
We had a great time! Denise communicates brilliantly. Highly recommend!
I’m so glad your family, including your Grandma, was able to spend your Christmas at the cabin. I hope you will have fond memories of your time together.
Peaceful, Relaxing, Perfect
Denise and Jim,
Thank you for opening your lovely log cabin to my family for Thanksgiving. It was exactly what I had hoped. EVERYTHING I could possibly need was provided. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The river was just steps from the property. Our girls and dog loved it, as did my husband and I. The water was cold, but we all went wading anyway ... every day. I want to come back in the summer to take advantage. We had s’mores at the fire pit and played games all day and night.
One so small suggestion would be to have better task lighting in the kitchen above the counter. That’s all.
Cannot wait to go back!
