About the property

3 Bedroom Log Home. 2.5 Baths. Accommodates 8 guests. On Cypress Creek!

ABUNDANCE awaits you at Abundance Retreat's Sundance Lodge! Sundance Lodge is one of our 2 ADULTS ONLY - Pet Friendly lodgings at Abundance Retreat. Our guests -- people and their fur family - have come back again and again since we opened in 2004. They love the joy of being in nature in such a special place, and they tell us they truly love all of the special touches with which we welcome all guests.

Make sure that you check out our videos, on the video tab to your left, as well as our personal website. Simply scroll down to the green print that says 'Links to more information' and click on the blue 'CLICK HERE' link.

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. It is great for preparing large meals, or whipping up some small snack plates, or dancing -- we think all kitchens should be enjoyed also for dancing.

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. Our Master Bath is of spa caliber -- shower in our Tree House Rain Shower which is complemented by petrified wood sinks and warm bathroom floors. 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.

Why Tina Sabuco chose Wimberley

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 14 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 cabin unique

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 21, 2017

Sundance Lodge was truly a relaxing retreat for the Bear and his friends as they enjoyed being surrounded by the Texas Hill Country in a spacious, welcoming vacation home. While located a short walk away from the Wimberley town square, Sundance Lodge provided a private retreat during our stay. We enjoyed watching the multitude of birds, squirrels (including rock squirrels), and deer from the porch which overlooks Cypress Creek. The outdoor kitchen made for memorable meals with family, and the dogs were free to relax and enjoy their stay along with their owners (including a dip in the creek). Tina and Shellye were incredibly accommodating hosts, providing all the necessities for spending time at the Lodge as well as a wealth of information for venturing out in the nearby area for dining, outdoor activities, and shopping. The bear and his friends would highly recommend Sundance Lodge to visitors to Wimberley and the surrounding areas, and hope to return soon.

This is my happy place!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many things that I could say to describe this property- but to summarize- peaceful, gloriously beautiful, thoughtfully laid out and with your every need in mind, natural, comfortable, clean! We had a group, and cooked a lot- the kitchen is well organized and appointed. It is within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. The porches are heaven for drinking your morning coffee, and sipping your evening cocktail with your friends and family. Plenty of room for everybody to have a seat and relax! The creek is also a favorite place to hang, and you really have to go down there for the sunset. The light is just amazing!

There were puzzles and games to play which we took advantage of, and nice, big tables to do them on.

Tina and Shellye are excellent communicators, and clearly it is their priority to make sure you have a good, safe, and memorable time!

I recommend Abundance highly, and can't think of anything that would have made it more perfect and happy than it was!

A lovely space to lift your spirit

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate! Sundance Lodge is warm and welcoming, with all the amenities you can imagine. It is big and bold downstairs, and quaint and comfortable upstairs. I love the "Lily of the Valley" room, with skylights, a cozy bed, lacy curtains, and lovely tea set on the shelves. There are so many cool places to hang out inside, and a million things to do nearby, even if it's just a walk down the lane to the thrift shop. Great shops and restaurants at reasonable prices are also within walking distance. Hang out at the creek or go to the Blue Hole. It's all fabulous.

Awesome Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family (including dogs) loved our stay at the beautiful cabin. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck, watching the deer, eating in, and just being together. Home is decorated beautifully with room for everyone! Can't wait to bring the whole family back to Abundance again to experience a different season. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Best Birthday Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs just spent an incredible weekend at Abundance Retreat in Wimberley , TX. We decided to go away for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and take the dogs with us.We chose the perfect spot. We stayed in Moondance Cabin and it is spectacular. It is romantic, beautiful, pet friendly and jut perfect for the four of us. The location is beautiful-right on Cypress Creek. 15-20 Deer were grazing right outside our cabin every morning and evening-saw Bucks, Does and even rwin Fawns-amazing. We can's wait to go back. Also want to bring our entire family and check out Sundance Lodge-absolutely stunning.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The six of us had an amazing stay at Sundance Lodge! It was beautiful, quiet, and the Creek did not disappoint. Everything was there that we needed other than food and beverages. It was total relaxation and we never wanted to leave! We had coffee on the deck each morning and dinner outside. The kayaks were fun and just floating in the river was a blast! These are all things we love about Texas! We decided it may have to be another YaYa weekend destination!
