Overview

Wimberley House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14, Home Overlooking The Blanco River

The Wimberley Retreat on the Blanco (just purchased in June 2014 and formerly known as '600 on the Blanco') offers a unique experience with a 3300 sq ft house that sits on 10 private acres with access to 600 feet of deep river frontage on the Blanco River. An outdoor kitchen with built-in propane grill and outdoor refrigerator along with a fire pit and horseshoe pit were installed in December of 2014 for additional outdoor activities to enjoy the outdoor beauty of the property. There is a cliff on the opposite side of the river that allows for ideal privacy and quiet. No other homes are in sight. Escape the city pace and bright lights for relaxing on the river with extended family or friends or co-workers. Have coffee on the deck or patios in the morning while a flock of wild turkeys roam the yard or several deer drink from the river. Enjoy an evening drink under the bright stars. The deck is also a great place to watch the many different species of birds on the property.

The majority of the river bank is shaded by 100+ year old cypress trees. The river itself has something for all ages with shallow areas perfect for small children as well as a deep swimming hole about 25 feet long. We are lucky to be located on a part of the Blanco that has deep water even in extended drought periods. The private grassy ten acres of The Wimberley Retreat provide more than enough room for everyone to run, play, throw a ball or frisbee, have a kickball game, or just explore the wonders of nature: birds, fish, turtles, frogs, lizards, butterflies, and wildflowers. Some fishing and butterfly nets are provided. Feel free to bring your fishing poles, river shoes, kayaks and canoes.

The Wimberley Retreat house is perfect for large gatherings as it provides a soaring great room with a 20 ft ceiling and a wall of windows facing the river that is open to the kitchen and dining area seating 12. The outdoor grilling area and deck seats 14 and additional chairs are provided for the lawn and river area. The kitchen and coffee/wine bar areas are equipped with all appliances, extensive food and drink preparation and serving ware, and indoor/outdoor dishes to accommodate any large meal. Each of the 4 large private bedrooms have patios/decks and attached full bathrooms with an additional 1/2 bath located off the entry hall. There are 3 kings and 6 twin beds in total. Two of the twin beds are in the loft area that offers access to a full bathroom via a jack-and-jill bathroom layout. The loft area also provides a ping pong table and kids TV/movie and toy area for hours of entertainment and an opportunity for the adults to visit in the common areas downstairs. More movies, books, coloring books, puzzles, and games for all ages are in the downstairs common areas, along with a cable TV and music system. Whether you are planning a mini-reunion, ladies getaway trip, couples gathering, team-building session for a small group, multi-generation family gathering, shopping or winery tour, or celebrating a special birthday or milestone, the Wimberley Retreat will provide all of the privacy, space, and amenities your group will need.

Area Attractions: Explore the areas around Wimberley by visiting Gruene, TX and the historic Gruene Hall and the Guadalupe River; Visit the Driftwood and Duchman wineries nearby or partake in some stellar Texas BBQ at the Salt Lick. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping in town for antiques and crafts or visit the San Marcos outlet stores 15 miles away.

About Roby Norvell

The Norvell family hails from Houston, TX where we, like most Americans, lead over-booked lives full of schoolwork, school activities, sports, civic, and work responsibilities. We have owned another property in Wimberley since 2008 and have come to love the area. Our kids are young and our parents and family do not live nearby. We wanted a place for our extended family to get together to run, swim, climb, explore, spend time as a family, and just enjoy the beauty of nature. We wanted to add another property to enjoy with family and provide a vacation retreat for families or friends looking to escape to the Hill Country. We hope your family enjoys our Wimberley Retreat as much as we do.

Roby Norvell purchased this house in 2014

Why Roby Norvell chose Wimberley

We searched for 2 years+ to find an ideal home located on a deep and easily accessible section of the Blanco River. We decided on this retreat when we found the perfect combination of easily accessible deep and shallow water to provide river entertainment for all ages. The house is also ideal with the soaring windows facing the river and the 4 bedrooms each with their own bathroom which provides everyone with the privacy they need.

What makes this house unique

The view from the great room and the wrap around deck and patios provide stunning views of the surrounding bluffs and deep river down the slope from the house. You can't see another house from the property and you feel that you're in an isolated retreat away from everyone else.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family of all ages! Beautiful completely stocked home- from pots & pans to dress up clothes for the little ones! We enjoyed the river, the deer, the fire pit, games, ping pong, books etc! Tons of outdoor seating with a gorgeus view of the river! Easy drive into town! Would recommend to other families and plan to return next year!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and great for our Valentine's Day stay! It was a great setting for 4 couples and gave everyone privacy. The weather was wonderful where we got to enjoy the patios in the morning and durning the day and the firepit at night. Saw lots of deer in the yard just hanging out. Would and will rent again!!

Girls Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful retreat! There were 8 ladies and plenty of comfortable beds and bathrooms with big fluffy towels for all! The house is laid out perfectly...two bedrooms up and two down...the kitchen is roomy, well stocked with any cooking utensil, pot or pan that you could possibly need. The views are wonderful with tons of outdoor seating. But it was rainy and wet during our stay, so we we got cozy gathering in the den around the fireplace,

Robert was helpful and always responded quickly to any question.

It was so perfect that we are planning on returning next year for our annual girls get-away.

Thanksgiving in Wimberley

  • 5 of 5

Little House on the Blanco was the perfect place to spend the holidays. The accommodations were exactly what our little family of four (along with our wonder dog) needed. We relaxed, explored, and were able to see family members who live nearby. We absolutely loved being close to the main center of town and were able to enjoy the "locals", restaurants, and get some holiday shopping completed. We cannot wait to book our next stay!

Great R & R

  • 5 of 5

Being from the panhandle of Texas, my wife and I spent time with our family at the Retreat in Wimberley. The accommodations were very comfortable with a good deal of privacy afforded with bedrooms and adjoining baths upstairs and downstairs. The family room is very inviting with a cathedral (3 story ceiling) and an excellent view of the river. Very nice green area in the backyard for games...a nice horseshoe pit and comfortable swing for taking it easy. Loved the gas grill just recently completed on the patio and fireplace for winter visits. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a quality get away with Wimberley just down the road along with Gruene Hall and New Braunfels an easy drive.

The Wimberley Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family met and enjoyed a wonderful holiday at the Wimberley Retreat. We had a mostly cold and wet week end, so we missed out on the outdoor activities, but the spacious accommodations made up for that. We were comfortable and entertained with the little kids playing with the books and games provided, and the adults watching football games and cooking in the large kitchen. The view from the living room windows was beautiful!
