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.

Why Tina Sabuco 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 cabin unique

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

Rock your cares away while taking in the Cypress Creek beauty.

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.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

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!

Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home nestled in the trees. Close to river/creek,shopping,dining,and outdoor activity. Perfect for large families and furry friends. Owners are exceptional and dedicated to the environment, promoting local businesses and making sure neighbors are respected. Had so much fun feeding deer, bird watching , and relaxing. The water area is very peaceful and sets back just far enough that you do not hear the noise from the creek, but just a few steps away.

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.
