About Charlene Myers

We have been blessed to live in Wimberley and on the Blanco River for many years. We own a construction company and do much work throughout Central Texas. We GREATLY enjoy our time at the ranch. It is so incredibly private and relaxing. We love sitting on the porch and listening the the rapids in the river. In the summer we enjoy time IN the river. There are deep sections, rapids, shallow sections and even good fishing areas. It truly is an amazing place and we know you will enjoy your time here also.

Charlene Myers purchased this house in 2016

Why Charlene Myers chose Hill Country

Blanco Rapids Ranch is in the Devils Backbone area between Wimberley and Canyon Lake. It is centrally located for trips to Wimberley, San Marcos, Austin, San Antonio, New Braunfels and Canyon Lake. The privacy of this river property is exceptional. The seperate suites make it the perfect place for a gathering of family and/or friends where you can gather together and also have your private lodging.

Great Place on the Blanco River

  • 5 of 5

We had a crowd of kids and grandkids. The house and Casitas were great. Much time was spent at the river floating down the river or grandchildren just playing in the water

The kitchen was well appointed with commercial appliances and a large bar. There was a nice deck overlooking the river which we enjoyed a lot.

The yard and landscaping is outstanding.

We went to Gruene one night for a dinner at the Gristmill which was a lot of fun. It's about 20 minutes away...good food.

We got to see the owners the last day

Charlene and Randy are super nice and very helpful

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this truly remarkable property. We are lovers of nature and land. This property has the most gorgeous grounds with century old live oaks. The view from the veranda overlooking the river is spectacular. We had 3 couples so the arrangement of the main house and the "cabins" was perfect. Highly recommend.

The owners are wonderful to work with which to us is a BIG plus.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were in Wimberly to visit some friends and had an amazing time here! The rooms were clean, the beds were amazing and super comfortable, and it was one of the most relaxing places I've ever been! My kids had a blast exploring down by the river. We can't wait to come back!!!

Hill Country Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A hidden hill country paradise is the best way to describe this place! The property is pronominal. From the manicured grass to the river and room accommodations this place could not have been better. We enjoy staying in places around the Austin area and this by far has been the best yet! We spent almost all of our time outside walking along the river, fishing, and soaked up the calming sound of the river. We enjoyed watching our children discover everything in nature. They are adventurous kids, so they caught tiny lizards, climbed rocks, and ran around the endless manicured lawn in front of our room. We even saw a group of wild turkeys fly up along one of our walks along the river. When we did adventure out of our paradise, we enjoyed walking around the Wimberley Shops (our kids really liked Papa Hoo's popcorn shop), saw the Christmas lights at Emily Anne Theatre , and played Bingo at the VFW. I even got in a run along the caliche road we traveled to get there. . . WHAT A VIEW! The rooms had frig and microwave and there was a grill, so we brought most of our food. We did go down the road one night to a good Mexican food restaurant, Milagros. The restaurant even had an area for the kids to play outside. Our room was laid out perfectly with a trundle bed for the kids. We stayed in a Western themed room with the cutest little decorating touches. They even provided cups, plates, utensils, and toiletries. This trip was truly perfection! I tell everyone I know about it. If you go to the Wimberley, Canyon Lake, New Braunfels, San Marcos, or Fisher area you have to stay here!!!
