Our family hails from Houston, TX where we, like most Americans, lead over-booked lives full of schoolwork, school activities, sports, civic, and work responsibilities. We enjoyed a most relaxing vacation at our first property, Shade Ranch, in 2008. In fact, we loved it so much that we purchased it three months later. Our kids are young and our parents and family do not live nearby. We wanted a place for our extended family to get together to run, swim, climb, spend time as a family, and just enjoy the beauty of nature. We then decided to purchase another great riverfront property in 2014, The Wimberley Retreat. Both properties have exceptional riverfronts, but are very different in their style and vibe. Shade Ranch is more traditional Texas Hill Country while The Wimberley Retreat is slightly contemporary with more of a lodge feel.
Why We Chose Wimberley:
Wimberley Texas is a perfect location for us because it is 3 hours from Houston door to door and only 1 hour from the Austin or San Antonio airport. Our parents and extended family and friends often join us for vacations at Shade Ranch or The Wimberley Retreat. We appreciate the seclusion of the acreage at each property while making full use of the conveniences of the Village of Wimberley. We regularly utilize the nearby groceries, pharmacies, restaurants, wineries, hardware and other stores. We appreciate the many nearby state parks and towns that make up the Texas Hill Country!
