In April of 2016, my husband Dallas and I were given an opportunity of a lifetime to take over a piece of property, located right outside of the charming Wimberley, Texas. These 35 acres were in need of a little TLC and we were passionate about restoring it to its original glory. We started our journey with a good old fashioned hill country wedding (we were the bride and groom!) and then got to work. We had the skeleton for what we knew could be a beautiful retreat and the motivation to repair and update the structures while caring for the land. With a little hard work, we believed it could once again be a place where guests flock to celebrate their special occasions and relax in nature. I have always loved being the hostess with the mostess while Dallas thrives when working with the land and animals, so we both decided to leave our careers behind for a new adventure! Our goal, with the help of our crew, is to provide a unique and welcoming experience for all guests who want to take a moment to unplug and find a little R&R We also wanted to create a unique space for weddings and events and affordable retreat option so that everyday folks, like us, can have an opportunity for some self-care. We believe that wellness comes in many different forms....for some, it may mean being pampered at our spa, spending quality time with family, celebrating a new marriage, letting your kiddos find joy during a fairy picnic, learning about plants on a guided hike, reconnecting with your partner with the help of one of our romance packages or just sitting on the porch with a bottle of wine while gazing at the stars! Most importantly, we hope that our guests enjoy the place we call home as much as we do.
