SHEPHERDS LODGE - a SkyRun Texas Property
Three miles to Wimberley Square, two acres of fun, one unforgettable destination.
Situated in the heart of the Wimberley Valley Shepherd's Lodge is an ideal place for your family getaway. Built in 2009, Shepherd's Lodge is a charming, rustic, and thoroughly Hill Country home. Designed for a large family, the layout and spacious indoor and outdoor living areas offer you the best of togetherness in the common areas and privacy elsewhere. The open kitchen/dining/and living space offers an inviting area to whip up a gourmet meal over lively conversation with friends or family. Enjoy a movie or ball game on the HDTV. Need a break? Head off to one of the four bedrooms, the second living area, the ping pong barn, or the hammock to take a nap.
Step outside at Shepherds Lodge and you'll remember why you wanted to get away to the Hill Country in the first place - relaxation and wide open spaces! Outside you'll find over 400 square feet of covered porches and a 500 square foot shaded deck to enjoy all day long and into those glorious star-studded Hill Country Nights! Relax out on the deck or in the new bar and grill pavilion after an afternoon spent playing or swimming at Blue Hole, just a short two-mile drive from the property. Challenge a friend to a friendly game of horseshoes or ping pong while you sip on a beverage - now that's Hill Country Living! "The stars at night are big and bright, Deep in the Heart of Texas" and you can experience it first hand as you dine with friends and family out on the deck at Shepherd's Lodge.
The spacious master suite is located on the second floor with its own private deck overlooking the outdoor gathering areas below. The bunk room and adjoining queen bedroom are found upstairs on the opposite side of the house from the master. The downstairs queen bedroom is tucked in a quiet corner just off a full bath. The cozy second living area houses a TV/DVD combo and daybed.
Only three miles to downtown Wimberley Shepherd's Lodge is a wonderful, centrally-located launching pad to enjoy all the Wimberley Valley has to offer from playing and swimming at Blue Hole Regional Park, shopping the historic Square and Wimberley Market Days, catching a movie at the legendary Corral Outdoor Movie Theatre, enjoying Hill Country cuisine and wines at local restaurants and vineyards, or browsing one of the fine local art galleries.
Bringing the kids? Let 'em run wild! Here you'll find plenty of space, over two acres, for a football or soccer game or that game of chase or catch you've been promising the kids for months. We know a few kiddos who've learned to ride bikes at Shepherd's Lodge, so bring your two-wheeler and start those lessons! Have smaller tykes? Shepherd's Lodge was built with kids in mind - several swings, a big kid treehouse, a generous sandbox, a camouflaged tree fort, and porches perfect for Big Wheel riding can all be part of the experience at Shepherd's Lodge. The upstairs bunk room is a perfect place for the kids to bring toys and play.
Planning a Girls' Weekend? It's perfect.
Have a larger gathering in mind? Shepherd's Lodge is adjacent to Shepherd's Rest (VRBO#238341) which can be rented in conjunction with the Lodge to offer accommodations for up to 16 guests.
Shepherds Lodge 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 in addition to a playground and a basketball and sand volleyball court.
The home is located in the heart of one of the finest acreage communities in Wimberley. We love our neighbors and want to be extremely considerate of their peace and property! Noise curfew is in effect from 9pm-8am.
You must be 25 years or older to rent this property. Maximum occupancy at all times for this home is 12 guests. We manage several nearby rental properties and therefore often have staff in the area. Please come and have a good time, but remember that behavior that is disrespectful or disruptive to surrounding neighbors will result in you forfeiting the remainder of your stay.
There is a limit of 4 vehicles unless otherwise approved.

Great home for Women's Getaway!
This home is in a great location, well equipped with everything you could need and feels very much like home. We selected it back in October for our April women's getaway weekend.We will rent it again. Only two issues that are easily resolved, clean both coffee makers with vinegar or replace. The one pot took over 2 hours to brew a pot of coffee. Have instructions for the TV to access local stations for the news and weather.
Other than that there is not one thing we would change about this house. Can't wait to rent it again, possibly this fall.
So glad you had a fun time at Shepherd's Lodge for your women's getaway. We'd love to have you back. Come back any time. We have addressed the coffee makers and instructions. We'll see you in the fall!
Perfect Spot for Family Meet Up
This spot was absolutely ideal for multiple families to meet up and spend quality time in the Texas Hill Country. The property offered so many options outdoors to allow the kids to get out and get some fresh air. The sleeping arrangements were perfect with the bunkhouse and 4 other rooms. We were very pleased with this place and would come back to the same property in the future. Highly recommended.
Our favorite place in the TX hill country...perfect!
We have stayed at this property twice now and enjoyed every minute of it! It’s perfect distance from the river and an excellent house with plenty to keep everyone occupied both children and adults
Perfect for birthday girls’ weekend!
Nine gals aged 33 to 66 spent 4 days at this home to celebrate a 40th birthday! Roomy, comfortable, casual and something for everyone. Plenty of space to gather your group inside or out. We’re already planning our next trip!
Great country getaway!!
We really enjoyed getting to spend time with extended family and friends here! It was very relaxing, and there was plenty of outdoor activities to keep the kids (and adults!) happy. Weather wasn't the best, but it did not stop us from enjoying the property. I told my husband I would love to come back in the summer so the kids could get in the river, which is a short walk from the house. House and linens were clean, and it was pretty well-equipped too. They had soap/shampoo, basic cooking spices and utensils. If you're looking for a peaceful place to get outdoors and enjoy facetime with a group, this is a great place to stay!!!
Home away from home!!!
This house is so cozy and it really feels like home! There is plenty to do there you don’t even need to leave. The property is large with plenty of room for my toddler to run around safely, which she loved! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and I will definitely be back!!
