About This Listing
Charming 1 bedroom cottage in Wimberley, Texas. Conveniently located less than one mile from the square, Blue Hole Regional Park and one of the last outdoor theaters in the nation, The Corral.

What a perfect place to feed your soul as you appreciate the unexpected beauty. Relax in the river to the soothing music of the gentle rapids, catch fireflies, throw horseshoes, barbecue, or rock on the wraparound porch as you listen to an occasional donkey on a nearby ranch. This is a place to be EXPERIENCED. Guests have easy access to the Blanco River from our property.

The cookies & flowers were a great addition to enter the cottage. Our stay was perfect - we ended up getting engaged at the Duchman Wineries! Before that, we took full advantage of how close we were to town and to Blue Hole Park. We also spent time swimming in the river in the back of the property, along with some front porch sitting and cooking/drinking wine. It was a nice, relaxing get away. The house had all the supplies we needed which was wonderful!
My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at River Song Cottage. It is a very sweet, cute little abode, and the land that the cottage was on was incredibly breathtaking! It was so green, and we would wake up in the mornings to find deer wandering the property. Summer has a Netflix account that was available for us to use, so when it stormed one night, we were able to keep ourselves entertained.
The house was a short (5 minute) drive to downtown Wimberley, which had so many cute restaurants and shops. It's also just a day-trip away from all of those great cities and towns you can find in the Texas Hill Country: Fredericksburg, San Marcos, Austin, Dripping Springs, etc. We highly recommend visiting Bell Springs Winery and the Jester King Brewery if you have time.
A two day stay was not long enough, and we are already planning our next trip back. :)
If a plate of home baked chocolate chip cookies doesn't melt your heart and make you feel welcome….not sure what will. Seriously, BEST Airbnb experiance I have had. This is such a sweet and healing cottage in a wonderful location. The town has sweet little shops and if you like crystals there is a great rock shop! The bed is comfy and the vibes are peaceful. I plan on returning again. Thank you Summer.
The cabin was nice and comfortable. The A/C and internet worked great, and the property was peaceful. Summer was responsive and kind. We had fun meeting the cats.
Unfortunately, we were disappointed to discover that the river bank on the property was extremely rocky, uneven, shrubby, and inhabited by fire ants. We were expecting it to be like the photo--a grassy lawn overhung with tall trees. However, the photo is of the properties across the river. We weren't able to sit peacefully in the grass, picnic, and listen to the river as we had hoped to do. If I had known, I probably would have chosen a different place, because the peaceful river/grass idea was a big draw for me. Future renters should be aware and I think the listing photos should be updated.
