SHEPHERDS REST - a SkyRun Texas Property
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 drive down to Blue Hole for a swim. 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, 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.
Have a larger gathering in mind? Shepherd's Rest is adjacent to Shepherd's Lodge (VRBO#701591) which can be rented in conjunction with Shepherd's Rest to offer accommodations for up to 16 guests.

Noise curfew in effect 9pm-8am.
Enjoy your stay!
We had a great time visiting Shepherd's Rest. The house was clean and had anything that we needed. The hot tub was unfortunately pretty luke warm and never did warm up over 97 degrees, even the second night. We enjoyed it anyway! There are lots of activities for the kids: basketball, a sand box, swings, a hammock, darts and ping pong. We used the very last and very smashed ball, however. The yard is huge! The dryer did not dry very well and the washer takes a long time, so plan ahead. We had our meals on the giant covered porch, and the living room furniture as well as the beds were very comfortable. It is a five minute drive into Wimberly and a few steps to the river, although it is pretty washed out from the flood last year. Don't miss Blue Hole and Old Baldy!
We really enjoyed our stay. Good location not to far from town.. All we needed -Nice and quite. We had a relaxing stay.
The house is beautiful and warm. 5 of us stayed in the house for the weekend to celebrate my sister's birthday. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and there are tons of things to do right on the property. Play ping pong, relax on the porch or swings, soak in the hot tub or grill some steaks, play board games or watch movies. Shepherd's Rest has it all just bring your loved ones and have a great time. We also drove 8 min to Market Days in town, that was fun too, tons of antique shops along the creek!
We enjoyed the house and property very much, our first visit to the area. Everyone very friendly, and helpful at Sky Run. No problems with the house at all.
Beautiful home inside and out. We were looking for a quite place to get away and we found it. This home is well furnished for a comfortable weekend escape.
