About Shiloh Collins
Peggy and Phil Collins bought this house in 2006 to use as their Getaway from the city. We wanted it comfortable for us, so now everyone gets to enjoy The Great Escape. We are blessed that everyone seems to love this place ( we have had some groups back over 17 times in our 10 years, and our repeat guest rate is over 45% ). We continue to make investments in this property, so that it is better each time you come back. Photo is taken in Shanghai China.

Why Shiloh Collins chose Wimberley
This property is in a prime location. It is directly on the Blanco river, that has a steady flow all of the time. It is 3 acres on a lot that provides privacy for any size group. This house was originally a farm house built in 1957, and has been updated with all modern amenities. The covered back porch is lined with teak rocking chairs to enjoy the view of the river and surrounding hills. The river flows at a pace that allows you to pull your chair into the river, relax, and sip a glass of wine. Wimberley is fun year round, and we enjoy the off season as much as high season.
What makes this House unique
The furnishings are all unique and are not a throw down of mass produced items. Peggy and I enjoy shopping for antiques and unique pieces that give the home a lot of character. For the guests we provide paperback books, board games, bocci ball, horse shoes, jigsaw and puzzles. We have high speed wireless, so you can work ( Ugh! ) on your laptop on the back porch ( if you have to work ). We have a large Binder in the house offering details on the vast majority of attractions in the area.

Great Escape...Great Getaway
Great Escape is a lovely home with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all. Lot's of room in general, as the home itself is large and spread out, so that there are various areas to enjoy. From the back porch with lots of seating, to the outdoor pool and hot tub, again, plenty of seating for all to enjoy. Game room/extra bedroom as well. The easy acces to the river was a pleasant surprise as well. Very nice amenities and easy directions to follow.
Our interaction with Shiloh/property manager was always pleasant and uplifting. We are looking forward to coming back again next year.
Perfect group weekend getaway
We rented this house as a spot for a bunch of friends to reunite and have a relaxing weekend. It was perfect. The house has plenty of space but is still cozy and comfortable, the pool and hot tub were wonderful to relax by, and waking up to views of the river and nature were super relaxing. Location close to town was also super convenient. Would definitely refer folks to rent :)
Thank you for your review and recommendation! We are so happy to hear your group enjoyed your stay at Great Escape. We hope to have you back again soon.
Thanks for the 5 star review!
