ABUNDANCE awaits you at Abundance Retreat's Sundance Lodge! Sundance Lodge is one of our 2 ADULTS ONLY - Pet Friendly lodgings at Abundance Retreat.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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!!!

Why the Owner Chose Wimberley, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -- 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 2. QUALITY - 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!
