Dome River House

Wimberley 4 Bedroom(s) 2 Bathroom(s) Sleeps 9

The first time you drive up the cool stone driveway of this beautiful vacation retreat, you will be unsure of what to appreciate first: the beautiful serenity of the sun streaming through the large oak trees. The 600+ feet of gorgeous river frontage just a short three minute walk from the house, there is also a paved road down to the river if you prefer to drive. Beautiful Cypress trees in abundance between the property and the Blanco River.

Among the many amenities offered, perhaps the most celebrated is the home’s enchanting wraparound porch complete with wrought iron patio furniture and a breath-taking view of the beautiful hill country. Whether you desire a dip in the clear cool water or a day spent reading in the breeze of a hammock with a glass of iced cold lemonade; the Dome River House will meet all of your vacation dreams.

A day may begin with a steamy cup of coffee and fresh baked muffins while lounging on the porch and enjoying the early morning sun and sounds of chirping birds and rustling waters. Spend the day floating down the river or jump out and start an amusing game of Frisbee on the 10+acres of spectacular land that are yours to enjoy.

A lazy afternoon spent reading, relaxing and enjoying the peace of your surroundings will leave you rejuvenated and refreshed for the nights’ activities. With its open layout, dark oak cabinetry and butcher-block island, the gourmet kitchen is sure to meet all of your cooking and entertaining needs.

After a day full of activities, what better way to spend the evening than enjoying a meal outdoors with plenty of space to accommodate all of your friends and family. Children and adults alike will be unable to resist the time honored tradition of roasting marshmallows by the home’s one-of-a-kind stone fire pit. Moonlight, stars and fireflies provide the perfect lighting to enjoy each other’s company while savoring a cup of cocoa by the fire pit’s blaze.

Staying for a few days or longer? The washer, dryer and dishwasher provide assistance and relief for extended stay guests. And the 2 bedrooms and loft space upstairs allow space and fun for the kids, while downstairs the adults can enjoy late night conversation by the wood-burning fireplace over a glass of wine. Peaceful, enchanting, and full luxury amenities abound at this one-stop dream vacation destination that you may never want to leave.

Guest Reviews of Dome River House

Wimberley , TX

Nice retreat

Reviewed on 2021-02-03 by Lynnette Bihl
This is a private home with direct private access to the Blanco River. The setting was exactly what we were looking for - private, quiet, room for 2 families. There is a little walk downhill to the river, but there is also a partially paved private road we could have used (and would have if we had launched the canoe). We did bring a canoe, but did not use it as the water level in the river was pretty low. Good fishing however. Our trip occurred in January-Feb, so it would be prettier in the spring or summer, but the view is great! Also a dark sky area, so you can see lots of stars. The house was very nice and well maintained. Central heat and AC. Lots of rooms and beds available. The king size beds were very comfortable. The porch is huge and has several seating areas as well. The description said starter supplies would be provided, but there was enough for 4 people for a 4 day trip. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, silverware, bakeware, etc. Paper products were supplied. Soap and shampoo samples were in the bathrooms. No wi-fi, but has Dish TV and some board games. There is a woodpile and a great fire pit! We spent the evenings around a nice fire with good beverages 🙂 The upstairs bedroom has walls that do not entirely close off the room. There are openings to the interior of the house, so there was light and noise if someone was still up downstairs. We really enjoyed our stay.
5 out of 5 stars

Great stay for our family of 5 with teens and a dog

Reviewed on 2021-01-25 by Tonya Knauth
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dome River House. It is well-equipped and immaculately clean. We usually find some grime or a dirty dish somewhere in a short-term rental - not here! We preferred staying in a more rural setting outside Wimberley and just driving in for one afternoon to explore town and shop a bit. We also visited Jacob\'s Well and Blue Hole. We were pleased to see people generally wearing masks and being respectful of distancing - it felt very COVID-safe. We loved walking down and sitting by the river - there are chairs by the water on a flagstone patio, and it is very serene. Our dog had a great time romping in the field and going back and forth. The fire pit is great, right outside the house, and we enjoyed an evening out under the stars. The indoor wood stove fireplace was fun and very warm as well. The kitchen has every pot, pan and dish that we needed to cook and serve for our family the whole weekend. The bottled drinking water dispenser was a thoughtful touch. Note: the bedrooms upstairs - the walls don\'t go all the way to the ceiling. We had a lot of fun bouncing our voices around inside the dome, and it was not an issue for us. Just know that those bedrooms don\'t stay quiet when people are moving around downstairs. We will definitely return to Dome River House!
