FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I bring my pet(s)?


Unfortunately, no, we do not allow pets. However, we highly recommend our local Wimberley Kennel (https://wimberleykennel.com/) for your furry friends. We know the owner and she's wonderful! Your pet will be only a few minutes away from your yurt. If you have a disability that requres that you bring a service animal, please give us a call to confirm your situation.




Can I bring my child? I'm happy to bring my own blow-up mattress.


Yes, you can bring your child (age 10 or older) to the RiverBluff yurts (group/family glamping). If you have a child under age 10, please call our office to discuss. Our RiverBluff territory is definitely a "rough & tumble, in the country" glamping site, so constant parent supervision is required. No, we do not have insurance that allows children under 21 staying at our hilltop yurts (Becca Ger, Lena Ger or Sasha Ger). They are meant for a quiet, adults-only atmosphere and are not appropriate for kids.




Can I book for a single night only?


This answer is . . . sometimes. During COVID, we shut down single-night bookings, but we're starting to open them back up again on Sunday through Thursday nights for "sandwich bookings" in which there's only a single night available on our calendar. Give us a call (512-333-2202) or email us (stay@yurtopiawimberley.com) if you're interested in booking a single night, and we'll see if we can't work something out for you!




How far apart are the yurts one from another?


Our Hilltop yurts are separated by 300+ feet of woods. You can see each other from the rooftop decks of Becca and Lena Ger, but only when you're standing up and trying to wave at your neighbor! When sitting down or lying in the hammock, you are private from the other yurts. Our RiverBluff yurts are situated closer together, roughly 50 feet between each of them. They each have their own private bathroom and little yard (behind a fence), so there's a bit of privacy away from the group, if you'd like it. Otherwise, the kitchen and firepit are shared in a common space and riverfront is open to your whole group. You'll have the exclusive run of a 2.5 acre territory.




What can I do when I'm at the yurt?


The number one activity at our yurts seems to be resting and relaxing! We specialize in the art of just sitting, listening to the birds, watching for shooting stars, or napping in a hammock. For guests who like to hike, there is a nice hill country walk down our road to the low water bridge on River Road to feed the ducks and put your feet in the water. There are hiking trails around Blue Hole Park and Old Baldy in Wimberley. Many of our guests spend time at the restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries and shops around Wimberley. There's live music at Longleaf Bar, Vista Brewery, & The Devil's Backbone Tavern. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to check out many of our favorite local spots!




When do I receive details on what to expect and what to bring?


We send out an email 5 days before your arrival date to give you our gate code, address, a list of what to bring and what to expect. We also include a "welcome video" to help you understand how to use the AC/Heater, how to turn on the fire pit and BBQ, etc. This allows us to offer a "contactless" check in. If you like to plan ahead, send us an message at stay@yurtopiawimberley.com to request your "welcome email" early!




Are the yurts climate controlled?


Yes! Our yurts have a minisplit AC/Heater that keeps the space cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We have little heaters in the bathroom that help "take the edge off" the cold in the bathroom in the winter time. We have hot water in the shower.




Should I bring my own firewood?


At the hilltop yurts, we don't have a firepit for burning wood. Wimberley often has a "burn ban" on, so we've opted for a propane fire pit. You can turn it off and on with the flip of the switch, and it's perfect for atmospher + s'mores! The BBQ is also propane and our guests do their cooking on the BBQ grill rather than the fire pit. There is a woodburning firepit at the RiverBluff down by the river's edge, but please keep in mind that much of the year has a "burn ban on" in Hays County. If you've checked the Hays County burn ban status (https://hayscountytx.com/law-enforcement/fire-marshal/), you may bring wood down to the firepit at the riverfront. Alternatively, we have a large gas firepit up by the yurts which works great for s'mores and atmosphere!




Who gets access to the river?


Our RiverBluff guests (opening July 22, 2020) will have access to the Blanco River. Our riverfront has a beautiful shaded lawn with 100 feet of knee-deep river water (unless there's been a heavy rain!) It's perfect for "river sitting" with a cold beverage and a book or group of friends! The yurts are VERY high up the bluff, so no danger of flooding when the rains come. The walk up and down the river bluff is hill country steep, so come ready to hike to paradise! Our Hilltop guests have a hot tub/plunge pool, but no river access. The Hilltop is on a different part of our property, so you can't see the river from the hill. However . . . it's a short walk down Shade Road to CR 1492 to the low water bridge at 7A Ranch Resort. Most of the time (non-COVID), 7A offers paid parking/day passes to guests who would like to hang out at their riverfront. They have kayak and SUP rentals, deep and shallow water access.




Do you have a hot tub or plunge pool?


The Hilltop yurts have a pool that can either be a hot tub or plunge pool, depending on the season. There's a switch for jets only vs. heater + jets. The RiverBluff yurts have 2 hot tubs/plunge pools, PLUS access to the beautiful Blanco River!




What is your cancellation policy?


Reservations that are cancelled more than 30 days prior to the arrival date will be fully refunded. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay or that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, forfeit all payments made, including taxes. However, for cancellations made less than 30-days prior to arrival, we will do our best to rebook your dates with another guest. If we are successful in rebooking, your cancelled booking may be used as a credit towards a future reservation of equal or greater value. Our full rental agreement can be found on our Book Now page under "Booking Policies."
