As you enter the driveway you’ll pass a magnificent 200 year old oak tree and enter the cottage thru a spacious outdoor living area with a view of the garden. The thick stone exterior walls make for a quiet, relaxing retreat.
A fully equipped kitchen and casual dining center around a handcrafted cherry wood topped island. The living area, anchored by a floor to ceiling rock fireplace, beckons you with comfy sofa and sumptuous leather chairs.
Light fills the living area thru large patio doors opening onto a screened porch that extends across the entire back of the house with relaxing seating and dining. Outside off the stone patio a path leads to a deck overlooking a dry creek. Further along the path is an outdoor shower.
Enjoy a peaceful night’s rest on a queen size bed in a quiet, cozy bedroom. The spacious bathroom, with a view of the garden, has a large tiled shower with a stone floor.
Perfect for a couple or two, with a full size Lay-Z-Boy sleeper sofa, the Cowboy is suitable for adults only.
Guest have access to entire property including deck, grill area, outdoor shower, dry creek bed and the owners large garden which separates the two houses. And you’ll have access to the Blanco River via a path across the lane through the owners riverfront property!
The location is an idyllic spot, on a road that winds its way down from the highway to a spot across the street from the Blanco River. Properties in the neighborhood range from 1 to 10 acres. Several of the residences are second homes, which makes for a quiet and peaceful setting. Many walks can be a solitary experience, save for the deer, birds, foxes, red tail hawks, hummers and is home to the endangered Golden-cheeked warbler. Large oak trees provide a high canopy up the driveway and gracefully dot the neighborhood.
The Cowboy is located 10 miles from the town of Wimberley. So you best plan on arriving by motor vehicle. For cyclists, walkers and joggers, there are long roads to explore.
Other Things to Note
The Cowboy is great for a couple or friends that want to get away, cook a great meal and chill. Excellent setting for artist and writers. Internet access for browsing and streaming music, satellite TV, BluRay dvd and stereo. AT&T cell service – all others iffy.
Many scenic drives, an award winning regional park-Blue Hole in Wimberley, famous Jacobs Well natural area, Emily Ann theatre, The Wimberley Players theater and local restaurants ranging from TexMex (Mima’s) to fine dining (The Leaning Pear, Jobel’s) to casual (Wimberley Cafe, Cypress Creek Cafe, Inoz and others.)
And don’t forget the many shops in and around the town square. Book your stay over the first Saturday, March thru December, and enjoy Market Days – a flea market that draws shoppers from across the region.
