Simply Wyldwood is a 10-acre homestead in Wyldwood Texas 20 miles east of Austin that includes woodland hiking trails and hosts My Yoga Barn which is an 800 square foot yoga/dance/martial arts movement space complete with yoga props. The Barn is surrounded by nature which includes a large 100-year-old Blackjack Oak on one side, a food forest with chickens on the other, and the Post Oak Savannah landscape throughout. You can enjoy the windows open or closed but the windows do not have shades to allow you to be as close to nature as possible without the bugs. You are secluded from any neighbors and away from the main house. The back of the barn and the private bathroom is near the back wall with no windows for more privacy. Bring your own bedding for floor sleeping or rent an air mattress from us. The full bath inside has a tub for soaking or you can enjoy the outdoor hot/cold shower under the stars. You have access to the large communal fire pit on-site when safe to have fires. When you book the Barn all other sites are closed unless also booked by you.
There are two decks attached to the Barn. The front deck faces East and is great for a sunrise practice, soaking up some rays, and night sky viewing. There is outdoor seating with tables and chairs on the side deck near the Oak along with a ping-pong table (balls and paddles included) and a gas grill. Various sit spots are located through trails and gardens.

Places to see near Simply Wyldwood Homestead
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Loved staying here. I booked a homestead tour as well and Rebecca was so knowledgeable and lovely - definitely recommend doing this if you're curious about permaculture. I hiked across the street at the nature preserve, did some yoga watching the sunrise come up, and enjoyed the outdoor shower (there's a full inside bathroom too). All around recommend this lovely lil stay
Great place for a small group!!
This was my second time at Rebecca’s place and it’s such a gem! So easy to get to from Austin and have a little nature escape! The energy of this special place is always felt! I love that that there is an indoor space for yoga, resting or a class!
Always love coming to wyldwood!
This is my second time coming to Wyldwood! I brought a group of women here and Rebecca and the property are so special! Its such an easy place to get away from Austin for a night or two and I love that there is indoor and outdoor space! The way the landed has been tended to is so special! Excited to come back!
Yoga barn bliss
The yoga barn @ Rebecca's homestead was perfection for our 3 night stay in Bastrop. The space is immaculate, beautiful and fantastic vibes. In the space there are beautiful views of the sunrise, the moonrise, the growing food forest, fireflies, bunnies, fruit orchards and it is very peaceful. The deck provides a lovely atmosphere for self-brought meals, drinks, reading/writing and quiet contemplation. There are even lovely woodsy trails for a quiet nature walk. Rebecca was totally available and a wonderful host. We'll definitely be back.
Zen times at simply wyldwood
We had the most beautiful time at Rebecca's property. It's so peaceful, the land is full of nature and love. I rented out the yoga barn for my birthday gathering, a group of female friends. The day was so meaningful and Rebecca was the perfect host. We did the add on of Forest Bathing/ Nature Nourishment to start our day and we're so glad we did! Rebecca's knowledge of the land was so informative and passionate, and as a guide she led us into mindfulness and appreciation of nature which I am still feeling days after leaving. We planted okra and black eyes peas to finish the experience with her. I hope she gives gardening and growing classes in the future because I'll be there! The whole homestead experience was inspiring and you can feel the love put into the land. It's a gem of a property and we can't wait to go back.
Thank you so much Rebecca for sharing your beautiful space with our group.
This was the perfect spot. A friend of mine flew into Austin from a long trip very late at night and his arrangements were canceled last minute. I found this spot the day before he flew in. Rebecca was so kind in telling me about renovations that were occurring at the time but it wasn’t enough for me to want to change locations. Her property is beautiful. Wildflowers thickly cover the yard in front of the barn. You take a short walk through the forest to get to the barn from the parking lot and it gets you into a calmer headspace immediately. The barn was spectacular, huge, clean, simple, not cluttered but she still gave us permission to use her yoga equipment that was there. There is AC in the barn but we didn’t need it! We just opened the windows and turned on the fan. It was perfect. We heard the call of what Rebecca told us was the Chuck Wills Widow, beautiful night singing bird. Her garden was beautiful to wander through in the morning and the outdoor shower truly made it feel like a vacation and not a quick place to stay for the night. I look forward to staying there again and participating in some of the on-site activities.
Does not have a bed.
THIS PLACE DOES NOT HAVE A BED. Rebecca is really nice but I didn’t read the description very well and did not notice that this place doesn’t have a bed. I rent it to spend the night and I had to sleep on the floor. The most uncomfortable night, even thought the garden and surroundings was beautiful. At least I recommend the host to have a bed for people that stay the night.
Rebecca was a great host. She was good with communication, polite and had a great vibe. Thanks for the black eyed peas!
Her land is beautiful - we enjoyed the trails on the property. The barn itself is awesome and was perfect for myself and my friends. The outdoor shower was a hit. The garden and chickens were a hit. The fire pit was a hit.
The surrounding area has plenty to do - Bastrop State Park, McKinney Roughs. Close to a gas station and firewood stand if you prefer that over the ground wood.
