Hoping to migrate for a weekend getaway! Butterfly Ridge, located in Wimberley is the perfect location to explore the Hill Country and all its wonders. The Monarch House is one of two compact houses located on this breathtaking ridge. This treehouse inspired home will host up to six guests and offers one spacious bedroom as well as a lofted sleeping area, making it the perfect space for kids to flutter away for the evening. For larger groups, the Morpho House is a studio style house and is located within a few yards and sleeps two.
The property was thoughtfully named Butterfly Ridge in celebration of the butterflies that flutter through the ridge in the Fall during the migration season. Many guests have been fortunate to visit the property when it is alive with butterflies making their way across the continent while passing through Wimberley, a little piece of hill country heaven.
Upon arrival guests will find a fun two story tiny house, with a lovely deck, breathtaking views, and a roomy master bedroom with a queen bed located on the main level. Additional sleeping can be found in the upstairs loft with two full size air mattresses, an ideal space for kids! Guests will delight in the colorful palette chosen in honor of monarch butterflies with rich golden yellows, deep oranges, hints of browns and blacks. Furnishings for the Monarch House were specifically chosen to keep with the light airy feel and a mid-century modern style. Relish in a full kitchen that guests can easily prepare family favorites and enjoy meals a'la carte on the outdoor deck. Tidy up for the night in the masterfully tiled bath with a walk-in shower and bench seat. With clean lines and comfortable furnishings the living space is perfect for watching a favorite movie, or sports team. An added bonus the living space hosts a fun convertible chair that converts from a great little reading nook to a single sleeper.
With sprawling land to explore, enjoy nature trails, wildlife sightings, or relaxing on the deck with a favorite beverage. Appreciate the grilling area with supplies provided, just bring the entree! For those fairy lovers, stroll over to Fairy Lane, a fun and whimsical little garden where fairies dance and flitter about. Evenings can be spent gathered around the communal fire pit roasting smores and sharing stories from the day's adventures.
Special attention has been made by the owners to ensure that the Monarch House is environmentally friendly. The home's water is supplied by great tasting purified rainwater. The Fire-pit was made of rocks gathered from the property and nature trails were created from trimmed trees from Butterfly Ridge.
