Located on sparkling Cypress Creek and just a 1/4 mile walk to historic Wimberley Square, Sundance Lodge, is named for it's bright and sunny interior. It is a luxurious, spacious 2800 sq. ft. log home with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

The great room has a 28-foot high cathedral ceiling made of Norwegian pine, floor-to-ceiling windows and warm hardwood floors. This large living and dining area provides a perfect view of the grounds for you to enjoy, as you nest by the fireplace or watch the wildlife out the windows.

The cozy den features pine log walls and a hand-crafted fireplace of Texas Hill Country stone. You and your guests can warm yourselves by the fire in inviting overstuffed leather chairs while playing games, telling tall tales or comparing your treasures from the day's antiquing adventure.

Sundance Lodge has a fully-equipped charming country kitchen with a chef-quality stove, cookware and complete serving ware.

The Sunrise Suite is the master suite and is on the first floor. It has floor-to-ceiling doors and windows that open onto Live Oaks and sweeping vistas. Shower in our Tree House Rain Shower which is complemented by petrified wood sinks. With a king-size bed and a trundle bed, the Sunrise Suite can accommodate up to 4 guests and is spacious and comfortable.

On the second floor, The Lily of the Valley Room has a queen-size bed and a cozy sitting area. High in the treetops and enveloped by fluffy bedding, you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Featuring a Lily of the Valley motif, the room is appointed with classic greens and rich cream colors.

Appointed with antique toys, vintage games and timeless books, Sundance's third bedroom, the Play Room, welcomes you back to your childhood. Twin beds, twin bear tables, and twin bunny lamps will bring out the kid in you. Let the fun begin!

Outside, you will find the outdoor entertainment area with over 2,000 square feet of exterior patios and decking, an outdoor kitchen with a grill and smoker and a covered stone porch with rocking chairs. This expansive outdoor entertainment area creates a seamless connection of inside and outside, blending natural beauty with comfortable living.

Connect with nature and soothe your soul on the peaceful and unspoiled grounds of Abundance. Towering Live Oaks, with outstretched branches, welcome you upon your arrival. Rays of sunlight gently filter through the leaves of Abundance's park-like setting. Deer, birds and butterflies will likely pay you a visit sometime during your stay. Spring-fed Cypress Creek winds it's way alongside your backyard, so clear that you can see the fish and turtles smile.

About Tina and Shellye

Hello! Nice to meet you! That's me, Tina, on the right and my lovely wife of 28 years, Shellye, on the left. We're holding 2 of our 'boys' - - I'm holding Mahoney and Shellye's holding Elvis. Our other pups and kitties are not pictures. I'm originally from Escanaba, Michigan and Shellye is originally from Houston. We love to share Abundance with others that share a love for being surrounded by nature while sitting in the lap of LUXURY with your animal family members!!!

Tina and Shellye purchased this house in 2004

Why Tina and Shellye chose Hill Country

Abundance Retreat is truly distinctive -- from its outstanding location to the quality and love we put into our home for you to how we care for you, our guests. See more on this in the "unique benefits" section below.

After over 11 years of operating, we find that people come to Abundance to get away, have fun, or have a special gathering. They find so much more than that -- they find joy in the nature and beauty -- in the life -- that surrounds them. They find peace in connecting with the earth, with the sky, with the creek, with the deer, with each other and with themselves. They find creativity in our homes and property and also around Wimberley. And they find inspiration.

These are the things we hear from guests. We encourage you to read our reviews.

What makes this house unique


-- On sparkling Cypress Creek – it is in our back yard. Note, Cypress Creek is Wimberley’s finest creek – it is flowing and beautiful all year round

- 1/4 mile downstream from the famous Blue Hole Park which features miles of hike and bike trails and the famous Blue Hole swimming hole – although most guests prefer to stay and swim on our property

- Across the creek from a nature preserve – you are surrounded by wildlife and the bounty of nature and have the conveniences of being close to downtown, the grocery store, etc.

- Proximity to the downtown square in Wimberley (super short walk to the Historic Wimberley Square)

Wimberley – Wimberley is a sweet Texas Hill country town with historic roots and beautiful galleries, great stops, and top tier restaurants


- We feature the work local artisans throughout both of our homes in the furniture and art selected for your enjoyment

- We have used high quality construction products and materials also that reflect the local natural surroundings

- Our construction materials and furnishings promote ecological sustainability where possible are non-allergenic and non -toxic

- We created a Tree House Rain Shower for you! It is really cool!

3. CARE: We take care of our guests

- Our homes are fully stocked with everything you will need and more and have labels guide you (note: you bring your food supplies)

- Our guests often come to celebrate life’s important moments – and if not they find them there. We seek to provide you with a truly meaningful experience, not just a vacation -- they come back and back and back - please read our reviews

- We help you have fun -- we provide you with lists of the “best of the best” of Wimberley and surrounding areas – things to do, restaurants and other

- We welcome your furry family too!

Beautiful home, very nice hosts, they covered everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing stay this past weekend. It's very close to all the shops in Wimberely but feels like the country. The house is very nice with a wonderful deck with rocking chairs and a hammock. Overlooks the creek area behind the house, though you do have to walk down to it to actually see it due to the trees. Really loved the fact that they were not only dog friendly, but dog encouraging! My son brought his catahoula and they provided treats and toys. Creek access was nice and there are kayaks and floats along with tubes. Also, a wonderful outdoor cooking area. Probably the thing we enjoyed the most was feeding and watching the deer each day. (Even the deer feed and birdseed were provided.) If nature is your thing you will love this cabin. We cooked all our meals there and only went to the shops briefly. The hosts literally thought of everything. Everything is labeled very well and so it's easy to find what you need. There were several board games as well if you enjoy that. Really love the high ceilings and windows in the living area. A very nice relaxing place to get away and enjoy nature. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect location, gorgeous home, attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had the very best time staying in this incredibly beautiful home in a quiet and secluded spot just a short walk from the bustle of downtown Wimberly. It was perfect!! The home was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The creek was cool and delightful on the sunny day we had and on the rainy day we curled up for movies and Monopoly. The hosts thought of EVERYTHING and I just loved all the labels and signs which were super helpful. We will definitely be back again. One of the best VBRO experiences we have ever had. Tina and Shellye, our hosts, even checked in on us multiple times during a rainstorm to ensure our safety. So nice!!!

Restful comfort in the midst of Mother Nature

  • 5 of 5

Sundance Lodge at Abundance Retreat is our new place to get away to and relax. The lodge is beautiful, with lots of light and windows to watch the deer, birds and squirrels play and roam about. In the cool of the morning, sitting on the awesome deck, overlooking the creek, you're in the mix of the deer heard moving to their next spot. You have a front row seat in Mother Nature's den. We had fun wondering around in Wimberley, however, we found being at the lodge was much more enjoyable. All the amenities of home, yet you know you are out of the city and in the perfect place to recharge and enjoy the best things in life. Even ur dogs were very relaxed away from home. The owners are hugely accommodating. They provide so much for you to enjoy your time at their retreat. They have a wonderful environment. We will definitely go back again and again. Highly recommend Abundance Retreat.

Sundance Lodge is an amazing cabin nestled just off the main street of Wimberley, but you would never know you were not out in the country. You are surrounded by all the wonders of nature. Trees, beautiful creek for swimming, herds of deer, huge raccoon family, squirrels and birds. The lodge is absolutely immaculate! Each room decorated with style. It was obvious the owners put much thought and planning into the details of each room. All our needs were met including necessities and for fun.

There are plenty of dishes, towels, pillows, blankets, etc. Plenty of feed for the deer, birds and squirrels. Rafts and beach towels for swimming. Games, books, movies, music, outdoor grilling, large deck, huge hammock...just amazing. Even dog supplies were provided. From the moment of making reservation to check out, you are treated like family. If I have to say anything negative, the only complaint would be sparse parking, which they have no true ability to change.

Love the Sundance Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

The ladies who own Sundance Lodge think of everything! The property is breathtaking! The atmosphere so relaxing and refreshing! Everything you can think of is there and labeled so you find anything you want. I can't say enough good about this beautiful retreat house. Sitting on the back porch, overlooking the creek, watching the deer, squirrels and birds was just the right thing for a weekend to get away from Houston.
