Our Story:

Originally founded in 2002 as Hill Country Sunset B&B with two bedrooms overlooking the Wimberley Valley as a retirement project, they quickly discovered that there was tremendous demand for their brand of hospitality. Focusing on the details and with an eye toward creating an exceptional experience for guests, they quickly garnered a following from guests and a reputation for quality among the other local operators.

Following the success of the Bed and Breakfast, the Cabins at Smith Creek were acquired and added to the selection of options for guests to reserve and the name was adjusted to reflect the growing options for guests. Hill Country Premier Lodging was born. These little cabins provided an opportunity to expand their offering and once again, a following was built. As their reputation grew, friends and acquaintances began to ask for their expertise and help with their fledgling vacation rental homes as well. The quiet retirement project was becoming a much larger endeavor and continued to grow organically by word of mouth for years to come.

The demand for a professionally run vacation rental management company was tremendous. Officing out of their home was no longer an option and by 2004 additional staff was required to support the growing demand. As their reputation grew, so did their inventory of managed properties.

By 2015, Hill Country Premier Lodging had grown to include 125 vacation rental properties in the greater Hill Country area and no longer bore any resemblance to the retirement hobby that started it all. The rapid organic growth and the increasing maturity of the Vacation Rental Industry demanded some significant technological changes in order to continue to provide the best service to both guests and property owners. With that in mind (as well as the desire to retire for real this time), a change in leadership was in order. The baton was passed to their daughter and son-in-law who have extensive collective experience in marketing, IT, operations, and management with award winning companies. Bringing that knowledge and experience to bear along with the continued guidance of the original founders and the growth of an exceptional core staff, Hill Country Premier Lodging has transitioned to be a cutting-edge Vacation Rental Management company that harnesses the leading technology advancements in the industry while maintaining the personal touch that made the brand successful from the start.

The personalized service for both guests and homeowners has been a hallmark of the Hill Country Premier Lodging brand from its inception and as a result we are proud to continue to represent some of the most iconic Vacation Homes in the region as well as continue to work with homeowners that have been with us from the very beginning.
