Grilling porch with butane grill, fire box, hot tub. All rooms provide privacy for the occupants and perfectly comfortable for Family Vacation Rentals in Wimberley . Walk across lazy Edgewater Drive - or use our two coveted river parks within a two-minute walk - one in each direction of our 300' of private frontage.

The space
This home has been elevated so that it's above the newly proposed flood plain for Wimberley. Hardwood floors, fully equipped kitchen, soft water and filtering system for super fine drinking water. There's no need to pick up bottled water! Nice linens. Washer and dryer. TVs. Wifi. Come relax! It doesn't get much better than this.

We have a drip coffee maker with filters and coffee.
This house sleeps eight comfortably. We provide all linens and towels. Prices are based on the first six guests because we try to keep it low enough where two or four guests can book it, and this is one of the best places to stay near downtown square and this is the only way to make that happen. There are four queen-size beds in four separate bedrooms. You may bring blowups and linens for extra people; however, for each additional guest over six, there’s an extra fee. Sleeping on the grilling porch in blow- ups is definitely do-able and fun for kids with an adult. Guests need to supply blowups and linens for any blowups you bring and pay for extra guests over the first six. Let us know how we may help you!

We book month-long stays for guests for a reasonable price December, January, February. After that, it's all short-term-rentals. We love helping guests, so please ask us for what you want.

We welcome your sweet dog! We charge $50 per stay per dog. It would be greatly appreciated if you would have your fur babies groomed before bringing them to Laura's Lodge. Please keep them off the beds. All pets must be on a leash outside, and the dog gate kept up to keep them off the carpet in the loft. We can add this after you book if you decide later to bring your dog, but you'll need to accept the alteration to the reservation including the pet charges when we ask you to. Thanks!

Please don't invite day guests without asking and paying for them.
Thank you for your consideration. It's a privilege to host you.

Guest access
You'll have access to our 300' of private water frontage. In addition to this 300', there are two river parks. We provide a key to these two coveted neighborhood parks that are a two-minute walk in either direction of Laura's River Lodge. One of these parks is so neat because it's shallow and flows and the kids love this! With our tubes, parents can let children float downstream to the other parent. 

So delightful! This park is located two minutes west of Laura's. 

The other, larger park, is 150 steps in the other direction and adjoins our 300' of frontage that's right in front of the lodge. These parks are perfect for hiking and discovering million-year-old crustaceans in the river bed, and you can see how the river once flowed over this area with force for many years. This larger park has concrete steps where you can walk into the river into shallow water. It's great for small kids and the elderly who want to get in the river easily. We're 3 1/2 miles to downtown Wimberley; four miles to Market Days, which is the first Saturday of every month. Full-size washer and dryer. Quality linens, soft water; a separate filtered water system. Free WiFi, cable TV, and ROKU with the owner's Netflix and Amazon Video accounts.

Interaction with guests
We enjoy meeting our guests if we're in town, and we're happy to answer questions about our area. Giving guests lots of privacy is also important to us. We do ask that you don't bring extra guests for day or night without special permission. We charge per person for all guests after six people. If you'd like to add more guests up to 12, you may bring blowup mattresses or sleeping bags - but there is still an extra charge per person.

We do allow one night bookings Sunday-thru Thursday night but we do not allow them on Friday or Saturday nights.

Other things to note
Market Days runs March - December, rain or shine. Dont miss it! Wineries are within a 20-minute drive. Wine tasting is three and a half miles away! Famous San Marcos Outlet Mall is 25 minutes away. There is a zipline within two miles. And the shopping in downtown Wimberley is fantastic these days.
