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 Shepherd’s 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.

Other Amenities:

Shepherd’s 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.

Other Considerations:

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.

NO SMOKING, NO PETS, NO LOUD PARTIES

NO OUTDOOR FIRES OR FIREWORKS

Beautiful Home. Great place for a girls weekend!

Review Submitted: 3/28/2017

A group of 7 of us spent a fun girls weekend in this lovely home! It's very clean, roomy and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Here's what all the ladies had to say about this home: "Loved the house especially the great front porch!", "So Beautiful and immaculate. Absolutely loved it!", " Perfect place for a girls weekend!", "We had a blast playing cards from 8PM to 9 AM followed by shopping at noon. What a weekend!", "Very comfortable. Homey".

Nice house. Good size for a larger group and very clean.

Review Submitted: 1/22/2017

Had a large group for a nearby wedding. Overall, we really enjoyed the house. It's a good size for about 10 adults- I wouldn't bring anymore that. Very clean and well taken care of. The ping pong table in the back was an extra bonus.

Breathtaking

Review Submitted: 1/18/2017

Our stay at Shepherds Lodge was unforgettable! Our initial reaction to the property was shock by it's beauty and peacefulness. The house itself was perfect for our family. Just enough room for everyone inside. It was very clean and I appreciated the all natural amenities left for our use. The kids bedroom was so much fun. All the kids really enjoyed having their own space. The swings hanging from the enormous oak trees was a blast for the kids. The proximity to the town and grocery store was convenient.We spent a day in town and really enjoyed exploring. Everything about this house was amazing! Thank you for allowing us to create memories in such a memorable place.

Great place for families to stay and close to the River

Review Submitted: 1/10/2017

We had an amazing time! The spacious property is perfect for a large family. We enjoyed the nights under the string lights on the large deck outside. The kids played ping pong and enjoyed the tree house. The home is also very close to town and the river. Would definitely stay here again and might just make it a tradition. Thanks!

Winter Wedding Weekend

Review Submitted: 12/14/2016

We made Shepherd's Lodge our home base during a family wedding this past weekend. There were 6 adults and 2 children ...ages 92 to 4...who were very comfortable in this home on the chilliest weekend in Wimberley in two years! We had coffee early morning while watching for deer and neighboring llamas and goats...worked a jigsaw puzzle at the beautiful "table with a view"...made cinnamon rolls and egg casserole to serve to the groom and a his best man Saturday morning...watched two little grandsons play soccer in the enormous field and explore the tree house and swings...relaxed to a football game on TV in the big room. Downtown Wimberley shops, Cypress Falls Event Center and HEB were minutes away. We made more than a few trips to all in preparing for our events. This is a very comfortable, well-appointed , spotless house...I hope we can visit again soon with a little less to do!

Great getaway place for long/short stay.

Review Submitted: 11/6/2016

There were 7 people and we had room to spare tons of amenities at the property. We would come back to this property and Wimberley.

Be sure to rent a car or plan on driving, our group was caught off guard by the lack of cab service.

Can't believe we found this place. Our family loved being at this house. We're already planning on coming back in the spring. It's a very short walk down to the river. Awesome!

Lovely house for our family reunion

Review Submitted: 9/18/2016

The house was perfect for our family reunion! Lots of space for lounging while catching up with family members. The house was spacious with plenty of room for everyone. The house's porch was great for sitting and watching deer walk through the yard in the morning. Would def recommend and will be coming back again!

Spacious, bright, and comfortable home.

Review Submitted: 5/19/2016

The Shepherd's Lodge home was a perfect home away from home. The house was stocked with all the necessary amenities. My entire family (immediate and extended) all commented on how beautiful the location is. We had a great time in the spacious outdoors. The property management was ver quick to reply to all my questions regarding the property. Downtown Wimberley is just around the corner and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the cute and quant shops.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

Review Submitted: 5/5/2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended weekend at Shepherd's Lodge. The home is gorgeous. The owners have done a great job on making sure everything you need is well stocked. We just needed to bring our food, clothes and toothbrush. ;) Our three boys loved the ping pong barn, tree house, and tree swings. There is a cute sitting area on the front porch with a checkers table where many games of checkers were played over the weekend. The neighborhood where the house is located is really quiet and peaceful. The house is also just a few minutes from downtown Wimberley. Scott at the rental office was really prompt answering questions the few times I needed to contact him. I wouldn't hesitate to book Shepherd's Lodge again on our next trip out to the Hill Country.

Beautiful, cozy house! We'd definitely come back!

Review Submitted: 4/24/2016

We had a group of 8 adults staying at the house for a friends wedding. Working with Aaron was very easy and the house was beautifully decorated, cozy, and exceptionally clean! The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials. The backyard was HUGE. Kitchen and living room were great for our big group. Each of the rooms were very nice sized. The patio was great for morning coffee and reading! Overall great experience and highly recommend! Thank you!

Perfect hill country home :)

Review Submitted: 2/17/2016

My husband and I started a tradition a few years back with another couple where we rent a home for Valentine's weekend in the hill country. Since none of us had ever been to Wimberley before, we decided to make it this year's destination. Initially, another couple was going to make the trip as well, so we looked for a home with enough space for 6 adults to get around in comfortably. Shepherd's Lodge would have been/was perfect for that! The home is on a large lot that offers plenty to do outside. We all stepped back a few years in time and played some football, soccer, swung on the swings, and explored the tree house. We enjoyed evenings on the large porch spaces and the rocking chairs and were able to grill/eat at the outside bar area which was so neat. Though we wanted to play some ping pong in the outside shed, time did not allow for us to get in all of the fun activities we could have. Inside, the house was decorated so nicely and had very unique touches to it all over the place. We especially enjoyed the large, appliance stocked kitchen where everyone could fit to pitch in on making meals. Most of our time was spent at the large kitchen table playing dominoes and card games. There is a fireplace for use and a TV if needed. The rest of the downstairs contained a full bath, an adorable bedroom, and another room with a day bed and TV in it. Upstairs, my husband and I stayed in the master bedroom that had a king sized bed with a HUGE bathroom and private porch area. Our friends stayed in the front bedroom that had a Jack and Jill style bathroom which connected to a really neat kids room. The kid's room had two built-in bunk beds and plenty of floor space for playing in. There was also a laundry room for use upstairs as well. While staying there, we got to meet the owner who was able to answer any questions we had about the house, town, and how to properly access the river across the street. He was very nice and we are so thankful that his family shared their wonderful home with us :)

December 2015 Stay

Review Submitted: 1/4/2016

We loved oue atay ar Shepherds Lodge! The house was perfect for our needs in terms of giving the family enough space to separate or hang out together for dinner. The land with the property was a great adventure playground for our two year old grandson. And sitting on the decking or porch of an early morning or eveninf was peaceful and beautiful. I really hope we have an opportunity to stay in this great house again. We didn't want to leave!

Wonderful Retreat!

Review Submitted: 9/27/2015

I rented The Shepherd's Lodge for a girls' weekend getaway, and it was absolutely perfect! We enjoyed everything from mornings and evenings on the porch, to watching College Football in the living room, to cooking in the kitchen, to sleeping in the super comfortable beds. Aaron and Scott at the rental office were available and helpful every time I contacted them (prior to and during the visit). We loved it and hope to come back some day!

Excellent in every way!

Review Submitted: 5/7/2015

My family and I stayed at this beautiful house during Christmas. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and a close drive to some nice restaurants and cool shops. We wanted something that was big enough to house all 14 of us, and it worked out very well. I can't think of any bad experiences or any reason we won't book this place again. I highly recommend it!

Kid Friendly Vacation Spot

Review Submitted: 5/4/2015

Traveling with young kids often presents a number of challenges. Not so at Shepherd's Lodge-it is a very enjoyable family vacation spot. There is a ton of outdoor room for the kids to run around and explore. There is also a large sandbox/play area with swings as well as a kid friendly bunkbed room. Great spot to vacation for the entire family!
