SHEPHERD'S REST - COME AND RELAX

Wimberley House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Home - 1 Bathrooms, sleeps up to 5

One of Wimberley's original vacation getaways, this updated 1940's rock cottage is an amazing vacation value.

Shepherd's Rest is a wonderful, centrally-located launching pad to enjoy all the Wimberley Valley has to offer from one of Texas' finest swimming holes, Blue Hole, to Wimberley Market Days, shopping on the Square, the Corral Outdoor Movie Theatre, local vineyards, playhouses, etc.

 

When it's time to relax there's plenty of room to enjoy the great outdoors at Shepherd's Rest - from stargazing in the hot tub; playing in the large, fenced, kid-friendly yard; grilling in the outdoor kitchen; relaxing on the Texas-sized front porch; or taking the two-minute stroll down to one of the most scenic swimming holes on the Blanco River. The outdoor gaming pavilion includes a basketball goal and darts.

 

Inside you'll find comfortable king and queen bedding accommodations; additional amenities include a full-kitchen, cable TV, wireless Internet, puzzles, cards, and board games to help you enjoy your stay at Shepherd's Rest.

 

Shepherd's Rest is the perfect 'Away, But Not Too Far Away' destination in Wimberley. Only a short drive to all the best Wimberley has to offer including: Blue Hole Regional Park, Corral Outdoor Movie Theater, The Square, Market Days, Wimberley Glass Works, and local eateries.

 

There's also plenty to do at Shepherd's Rest without ever getting in a vehicle! Enjoy a short walk down to the Blanco River (our favorite FREE swimming hole), a two minute walk. You'll find that this is truly the Wimberley Way - very relaxing and peaceful, a great family-friendly place to swim or lounge in a tube. Bring your river cowboy hat and floatie and beverage of your choice!

 

Shepherd's Rest is fabulous for the exercise enthusiast. Act like a local and enjoy walking, jogging, or cycling Flite Acres Road, Little Arkansas Road, or Little Ranches (it gets hilly fast!). Blue Hole Park also offers 4+ miles of easy trails for pedestrians and cyclists and a playground and basketball court for the kids.

 

No smoking or pets are allowed on this property.

Enjoy your stay!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed over Memorial Weekend 2014 and the house was perfect! It is a really family oriented house and my toddler had such a great time! I cannot say enough good things about our experience. House was clean, cute, quiet and very close to everything in Wimberley, Driftwood and Canyon Lake. We will be back again to this house. My parents who r 60 also enjoyed there stay as well!

Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We came here hoping for a little relief from our busy schedules, and this sweet cabin with its large and welcoming front porch and serene setting was just the medicine we needed. Very clean, very comfortable, very quiet. The love that has been put into this house is evident, and the happy times that previous visitors have shared here really does give Shepherd's Rest a special glow. The interior is simple, lovely and fresh ; the river is a two minute walk; the birdsong was beautiful; the outdoor spaces are large, with areas for many different kinds of activities; the showers were piping hot, the towels were fluffy, the sheets smelled great, the hot tub has a marvelous view of the moon, Aaron is accomodating and helpfyl, and.... even more wonderful, Shepherd's Rest is a five minute drive from our new favorite place, Wimberley.. We will be back again!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We used Shepherd's Rest for a day retreat for our planning team. The cabin is perfect for escaping from the fast pace of life while still being close to modern conveniences. The owners are so very accommodating and were very careful to make sure we had everything we needed. Having The Salt Lick so close by was an added bonus for us this time. Our time was peaceful and productive, and we will certainly use the cabin again.

The cabin was nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. But it rained the whole time we were there. The river was not in the back of the cabin as the add had mislead me to believe. There isn't much to do in Wimberely. Not enough restaurants and you can only visit the town square so many times. I was disappointed in not enough to do, but the rain hampered things also.

Owner's Response: Joan,

I'm so sorry it rained during your stay. Wimberley is such a great place. I'm sorry you weren't able to find more to do. We have dozens of brochures at our cabin of things to do in the area. Also, I think you might have our site confused with another site. We have pictures of the river but several times describe that the river is a 1-2 minute walk from the house. I'm sorry that was confusing. I hope you'll come back and give Wimberley another try sometime!

Sheperd's Rest felt like a home away from home. It was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We plan to return as soon as we can!
