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. Wimberley is one of the best kept secrets of the southwest. We're an easy 45 minute commute to Austin, but the tranquility leaves you feeling as if you traveled back to a simpler time. 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. While the cottage is appointed with charming antiquities of a bygone era, pressed tin ceilings, wood burning stove, claw foot tub, etc., you will have all the conveniences needed to make your stay enjoyable and economical. There is a full kitchen, washer and dryer, cable, HD TV, filtered water, memory foam mattresses and air conditioning. With enough room to feel at home, the cabin boasts a private bedroom with a queen sized bed and a loft hideaway perfect for children with a twin bed. If you'd like to bring a fourth guest, there is space for an air mattress. High speed internet is available nearby. Your flea free pets are welcome with an additional deposit and our two dogs will enthusiastically greet you upon arrival. I enjoying hosting guests and will accommodate your wishes whether it be for assistance or privacy. All linens are provided along with organic produce from the gardens when available.

Great little cottage on a property directly on the Blanco River. Fresh bread was ready for our arrival and cottage was a cool temperature given the 100+ degrees outside. All amenities worked as described and we had no issues. Location is convenient to the square (about 5 to 10 minutes) and very close (less than 5 minutes) to the Blue Hole area. The recent flooding did some obvious damage to the main house (not the cottage we rented towards the rear of the property) and repairs were in progress, so the direct access to the river was washed away. After a quick reply from Summer, we were on our way down to the river via a neighbor's stone steps.
The vintage car and truck were a nice addition to the antique decorations on the property and the truck even provided a bit of landscape lighting through its headlights. The 100+ degree temperatures didn't allow us to enjoy the firepit or barn (outdoor bar and recreation area), but looked like a cool place to enjoy the evenings.
Overall a great place to stay and spend time in a relaxing environment. Note that this is not a Hilton or Marriott or 5 star resort - but a charming old cottage...... expect a few cobwebs and the sort and embrace nature a bit. You will not regret it!
Summer welcomed us to The River Song Cottage with freshly baked nut bread on the kitchen table and friendly communication. The cottage was as described on airbnb...charming, rustic, homey, peaceful, and relaxing. The neighborhood was also very peaceful and relaxing.
Loved it! Chocolate chip cookies waiting for us! Gorgeous cute house. Fun loft area with bed for the kiddos. Fastest wifi in Wimberley! Will book again
Great, private home - well appointed, very comfortable - would stay there again.
By making cookies for us and leaving a note with great recs on how to get to the river. It made us feel very much at home!
There were fresh flowers at the table. I loved the ambience. Truly had a peaceful, beautiful time.
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!
