Our Story

In the heart of Wimberley, TX, Chapel Home waits to greet you as you slowly round the corner of Red Hawk Road. Once a functioning chapel where parishioners would meet every Sunday to worship together, it still provides rest for the soul — now, as a quiet and peaceful retreat, sitting on a spacious 2-acres at the fore of a running creek with gorgeous hill country views. 

This 100+-year-old Chapel is here today thanks to the late Terri LeMaster, who was divinely inspired during a silent retreat to restore this little white church into a “sanctuary in the woods.” At the start of this journey, the main obstacle was transporting the Chapel 400 miles to its new home. With its large size, workers removed the top half of the Chapel for its transport — during which a torrential downpour essentially “baptized” the Chapel. Upon arrival, Terri could start renovations with the Chapel in its new home after laying a new foundation and building a new roof and steeple. The entire renovation took a full seven years to complete, during which she built “Little Chapel,” where she resided to watch her vision come to life. 

Sadly, Terri passed away in 2018, although her heart and legacy live on through Chapel Home and the love that she poured into it. After Terri’s passing, Kimberley DeJong purchased Chapel Home and has kept her memory alive by lovingly welcoming guests for a peaceful creekside retreat. She has since recently added the one-of-a-kind red barn so that guests will have a place to gather and create memories. Kim continues to preserve the charm and history of Chapel Home while also finding new ways to make sure her guests have an experience like no other.
