Clean but old

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed it. Very secluded and quiet! Only wildlife seen was a jackrabbit. Upstairs shower water would never warm up. It was not cool upstairs either, need more window coverings. We enjoyed the time in the pool but the pool vacuum cleaner needs to run at night not during the day - it was always getting in our way.

ready to visit next year

  • 5 of 5

our grown children are already urging we book for next year! they loved the view, the pool, the short drive to Wimberley and the Blue Hole & Mt. Baldy staircase. Enjoyed the ever-present breeze and wrap-around porch and guest house was a hit, too. the small grandkids liked the swing&slide and seeing the wildlife on the drives (gate to house).

kitchen utensils aplenty but we could not find a can opener. And just a "heads-up", the TV began to post a message (at start up) that the projector lamp was about to fail.

VERY nice four days & nights....thank you, from all of our family's school teachers

This place was great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool and hot tub so much, we did not hit as many of the stops we intended to. There was plenty of room for our large group to spread out. The guest house made it really nice. The constant breeze from being at the top of the hill made it wonderful to be outside all day.

Fabulous and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than the pictures! Everything you needed was included, in the kitchen, bedrooms, laundry room, and even the pool! The guests we had were so very impressed with the house, view and property, that many asked how to book it. I even got inquiries from people I didn't know who saw the pictures on Facebook and inquired through my relatives who were there. Everything was immaculate, including the pool. The manager was wonderful, and I recommend more than five stars for this place. We also booked the pool house for the younger family members, and they loved having their "own" house - they were able to sleep late undisturbed! We had two graduations to attend, then came right back to enjoy this wonderful ranch for every minute we could.

This property is only 3.5 miles from the Wimberley town square. Wimberley is situated ideally between Austin to the north and San Antonio to the south. Regardless from which direction you arrive, Wimberley is the first place where the terrain markedly changes. The second you arrive in this valley, you instantly realize that you are in the Hill Country. Its location is the essence of the atmosphere that permeates this community. One moment you are driving on a plateau, and suddenly you drop into this beautiful, idyllic little valley where Wimberley is nestled.

Canyon Lake is one of the four premier lakes in Texas. What makes it such a coveted place to enjoy is how it is nestled in the Texas Hill Country, giving it a certain beauty that is all its own. Canyon Lake is only a 30-minute drive from downtown Wimberley.

There are a lot of "must sees" in the area, but here are some of our personal suggestions...

1. Blue Hole is frequently ranked as one of the “10 best Swimming Holes in Texas,” by travel magazines and respected publications like “Texas Monthly,”

2. Jacob’s Well is among the most unique perpetual artesian springs in the world.

3. Wimberley is the Zipline. Participants fasten themselves into a safety harness, complete with protective gear, and the fly 2,600 feet across some of the most beautiful terrain in Texas.

4. Corral Theatre. This unique, small town movie-going experience has been America’s only walk-in, sit-down outdoor movie theatre since 1948. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night during the summer, the Corral offers a slate of first run movies for the entire family.

5. And a long list of vineyards including but not limited to Mandola's Estate Winery, Wimberley Valley Winery, The Bella Vista Ranch, and Driftwood Vineyards.
