The Moonshiner Cabin is a perfectly curated, hand-built treasure. Let it transport you back in time to an era of cocktails and jazz. The owners have lovingly curated this cabin using The Prohibition Era and a bit of steampunk as inspiration and we guarantee there’s nothing else like it! Just a short jaunt to town, yet nestled among the oaks on 1.5 private acres, this cabin has everything you require of modern life, but the charm and romance of a different century.

The space
Just outside of Austin, TX, nestled among the hills and streams of the Hill Country, lies the charming little village of Wimberley. Folks visit Wimberley to feel like they’ve traveled back to a bygone era where kids swing off ropes into creeks, everyone knows their neighbor, time slows down and summer nights under the stars last an eternity. At The Moonshiner Cabin we can help you embrace that nostalgic longing. This cabin was lovingly constructed, designed and curated by the owners, Jennifer and Gregory, who aimed to capture the essence of The Prohibition Era with a little twist of Steampunk. Gregory, a local craftsman, hand built nearly every inch of the cabin including much of the furniture and all the light fixtures. From the moment you exit your car you’ll feel like you’ve left the hustle and bustle of your modern day existence behind. Once you step inside you’ll enter an era defined by cocktails, claw-foot tubs, flapper dresses, jazz music, pot stills and flickering lanterns. Don’t get us wrong, we love the luxuries of modern life, which is why our cabin has wifi, cable tv, a hot tub, and an award-winning Casper mattress, but whenever possible we tucked the modern world just a little out of sight. Gregory even designed a hidden tv to drop down from the ceiling! So, watch a movie, check email and soak in the hot tub, or make a pot of coffee, write an old-fashioned letter and watch the deer graze from the front porch. Whatever suits your fancy, we guarantee this is a one-of-a kind vacation rental cabin, and it will treat you to a one-of-a-kind retreat. We hope to have you as our guests!
