Wimberley is an artists' community just south of Austin in the beauty of Texas hill country. We are at the top of a hill, surrounded by trees. Although we are less than 5 miles from the heart of Wimberley, and just 30 miles from Austin, the neighborhood around the cabin is rural. Every home sits on 2 acres or more of heavily treed property. Deer and other wildlife abound. Nearby open spaces and rivers provide opportunities to hike, swim, and raft. The stars at night really are big and bright; Wimberley is one of only three Texas communities recognized by the International Dark Sky Association. The area is also known for its galleries, boutiques, wine tasting rooms, and unique restaurants.
Make the short drive to Austin to experience world-class museums, music venues, golf courses, restaurants, theater, and more. Or, take the slightly longer, scenic drive to explore San Antonio's Riverwalk, the Alamo, El Mercado, and if you’re visiting early in the year, the amazing San Antonio Rodeo. Venture through the heart of Texas wine country with a visit to Fredericksburg.
ALSO: Our main home is in Houston. We may be able to make it available for your use while you're in Texas. There is plenty to do in Houston: art museums, science museums (including a brilliant one at NASA, the US Space Program headquartered here), major league sporting events including baseball, American football, basketball, and soccer/football. We are season ticket holders for the men's Houston soccer team and have 4 seats for your use if you visit during the season). There is live theatre, a vibrant multi-ethnic food scene, and much more.
You will find a car necessary for traveling around Texas hill country. We may be able to provide one; please ask.
