You’ll want to take a look inside the Paper Moon log cabin located in Wimberley, Texas, United States. The amazing log cabin can accommodate up to 6 guests with 3 bedrooms, 3 beds, and 2 baths. The lovely log cabin is nestled among 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 log 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.
The Paper Moon is 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 log cabin and soak up the serenity. During your vacation stay, you can watch the deer graze as you enjoy your morning coffee from the porch, have a family bbq on the spacious covered deck, enjoy an evening in the hot tub and around the fire pit, or just snuggle up inside by the wood-burning stove.
At the Paper Moon log cabin, you get the privacy and serenity of a country home with all the amenities of modern life. The log house has two baths, two bedrooms (king sized bed, and a queen bed), and a semi-private loft bedroom (a queen-sized bed). Add that to the charming living room and wood-burning stove, a dining room with seating for 6, 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 the 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. The log cabin owners 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 the charming log cabin you’ll find vintage paper moon photos hanging on the walls, including some sent in by previous guests. Guests have full access to the log cabin and the property.
The water at the Pierce Creek low water crossing is designed to gently flow over the road. You’ll want to note, however, that the water can rise during periods of extremely heavy rain so please use good judgment before crossing. This happens a couple of times a year, and we find that it typically recedes to a normal level within an hour or two of the rain stopping.
