Relax and Enjoy the Property: Located just off the River Room, you will find a wonderful, large outdoor hot tub. It is a private place to unwind while admiring the brilliant stars above and the murmuring headwaters of the Upper Blanco River below. Follow the limestone steps near the hot tub down to the 513 feet of private river access below. The river will invite you to swim or wade in its cool waters and leave all worries behind. Or grab your fishing rod! Fly Fishing magazine identifies the Upper Blanco River areas as '. . . one of the best fly fishing spots in Texas.' Bring your kayak or canoe, and don't forget the floats and water shoes for tubing down the rapids. There’s plenty of room along the river to enjoy a picnic lunch, an afternoon nap or book, or a gorgeous sunrise or sunset on the banks of the Blanco River. Located only 5 minutes from Wimberley Square, this home completes the perfect hill-country getaway without sacrificing any of the charm (or shopping opportunities) that Wimberley has to offer.
Enjoy the grounds: The twenty-five acres of grass and woods provide ample space to run, throw a ball or frisbee, play kickball or softball, hike in the woods, or chase lizards, frogs and fish. Sit out on the flagstone patio overlooking the river and grill out burgers on the Weber grill. Grab a cool drink and play a game of bocce Ball or horseshoes on the court with the family. After the sun goes down you can also enjoy the fire pit to cook marshmallows or warm up on a cool fall or winter Hill Country evening. Watch for the many deer who live on the property, especially in the early morning. Friendly ducks from the river often visit at the house as well.

The kitchen is equipped with all appliances, extensive food and drink preparation and serving ware, and indoor/outdoor dishes to accommodate any large meal.
