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.
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
What is your cancellation policy?
Reservations that are cancelled more than 30 days prior to the arrival date will be fully refunded.
