Paper Moon is a lovely log cabin nestled amongst oaks and elms in the quiet countryside, just 1.5 miles from downtown Wimberley. You’ll cross a scenic low water crossing over Pierce Creek, a wet-weather creek that runs through the front of the property, as you drive in. This spacious cabin was lovingly hand-built by a local Wimberley couple in 1985, and has been recently renovated by the current owners while retaining its rustic charm. It’s an ideal spot for family and friend gatherings, but also perfect for a romantic couple’s retreat. You can make the short drive into town for the wonderful shopping and dining in Wimberley, or you can stay at the cabin and soak up the serenity. Watch the deer graze as you enjoy your morning coffee from the front porch rocking chairs, have a family bbq on the spacious covered deck, roll a cooler out to the veranda and enjoy an evening in the hot tub and around the fire pit, or just snuggle up inside by the wood burning stove and feel the stress of your daily life melt away.
At Paper Moon you get the privacy and serenity of a country home with all the amenities of modern life. The house has two baths, two bedrooms (king bed, queen futon, queen bed), and a large loft (queen bed). Add that to the charming living room with a fold-out couch and wood burning stove, a dining room with seating for 8, a hot tub, abundant outdoor seating, a fire pit, and the large covered deck with a bbq pit, and you’ve got the perfect space for your vacation! At Paper Moon the owners are environmentally conscious. They offer full recycling, use environmentally friendly dish and laundry soap, provide recycled paper products, provide a water filtration pitcher to eliminate the need for bottled water, and landscape with native low-water plants.
The name Paper Moon comes from a popular portrait fad that began in the late 19th century. It was an inexpensive and fun way to have one’s portrait taken and paper moon booths were often set up at fairs and carnivals. We enjoy these vintage portraits which often depict folks with big grins having a good time, unlike traditional portraits of the time. As you meander from room to room in our charming cabin you’ll find vintage paper moon photos hanging on the walls.
We are confident that Paper Moon will exceed your expectations. The owners really go out of their way to add those special touches to make your trip complete, such as providing firewood for the fire pit, and keeping the kitchen stocked with condiments and basics that you may have forgotten. You won’t want to leave Paper Moon, but you can always come back for another visit!
Pets allowed at $50 per pet and we ask that you leave cash or check for the pet fee with the keys upon checkout. Pets must be declared to the owners in advance, preferably at the time of booking. We ask that if dogs are left unattended at the cabin that they be crated. Thanks!

We try to give our guests as much privacy as possible, but we're just down the road if any maintenance issues or emergencies arise.
We put lots of love and attention into making this space to share with you. Thank you for treating our home with the same care and respect you would expect from visitors in your own home.
We are governed by our City of Wimberley vacation rental permit, which does not allow guests that are not on the reservation. If you plan to have a visitor during your stay, you must get permission from us in advance. We take this very seriously, as breaking this rule can jeopardize our permit to operate.
Pets are allowed for a fee of $50 per pet. We ask that you leave cash or check for the pet fee on the kitchen counter upon checkout. All pets should be declared in advance.
We invite you to enjoy our peaceful space, but out of respect for our neighbors please do not cross onto their properties and keep the noise level reasonable during the day and low after 10pm. Children must be supervised at all times, especially around the hot tub.
Check-in time is 4pm. Check-out time is 11am. Please be mindful of these times – the cleaning staff is on a very tight schedule.
If you wish to enjoy a fire, please respect burn bans, avoid lighting a fire in high winds, burn only wood, and make sure the fire is out before turning in for the night. We strive to keep a supply of firewood for our guests, but can’t guarantee it. You can always find firewood in town.
Please follow the posted hot tub rules and never add anything to the water (oils, soaps and bubbles are very damaging to the system). Please rinse dirt and debris off feet with the hose before entering the tub - if you have kids in your group, please make sure they do this! Leaves and debris can get stuck in the pump and damage the tub or make the water unusable.
This house has a septic system. PLEASE BE GENTLE. Do not flush any feminine products or non-degradable items down the toilet and dispose of kitchen grease in the trash when cool.
All trash must be bagged and left in the large trash can at the end of Leath Hollow. Please place all recycling (glass, paper, cardboard, cans, and plastic containers - no plastic bags, please) in the bins provided. Before checking out, please empty them into the large recycling cans at the end of Leath Hollow. We take the trash cans out to the main highway for pickup on Sunday nights, and the recycling cans out on alternating Wednesday nights.
Please help us be green. We provide a Brita water filtration pitcher in the fridge, which we hope reduces the need for plastic water bottles. We also ask that you turn off lights when not in use, including the porch lights after you’re in for the night. Please leave the hot tub cover snapped on when not in use and take advantage of our convenient single stream recycling. Thanks!!
When checking out: please wash dirty dishes, stack dirty towels on the washer, empty trash and recycling in the large bins on Leath Hollow, turn the AC to 78 or heat to 65, turn off all lights and fans, and leave the pet fee, if applicable. Thanks and safe travels!
The proprietors, Gregory and Jennifer, live just down the road. If you have any problems or questions, please call them at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
Thank you so much for visiting us. Enjoy your stay at Paper Moon!
