Pet Friendly--and they love it!: Our canine guests love the Treehouse. They can romp in the leaves, chase squirrels, splash in the water and have full run of the property. The outdoor shower works well in cleaning up our canine guests should they get a little dirty! Our canine guest rate is $22.00 a night, per guest.
*Note: We love our canine guests. If our canine guests like to relax in the house, it is their owner's responsibility to be sure the canine guests do not go into the sleeping area, that throw rugs are removed, and upholstered furniture is covered with sheets provided. We hope taking these precautions will minimize the amount of hair and dander that will need to be cleaned. If there is excessive cleaning as a result of our canine guests, the owner may be charged for the additional cost.

About Sandy Hightower
I chose a vacation rental business after 30 year career because of the opportunities it offers to meet some really interesting people and offer them a great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle.
Sandy Hightower purchased this cabin in 2007
Why Sandy Hightower chose Smithville
The Treehouse Vacation Cabin is located on the Colorado River a short drive from Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. It is rare to find such a wonderful piece of waterfront property that is so centrally located.
What makes this cabin unique
We fell in love with the property when we saw the park at the water's edge, the birds (including Bald Eagles), the deer, and wildlife. The stone fireplace is very romantic. The deck below allows for gatherings of family and friends. The Colorado River offers bass and catfish galore!
Guestbook comments from the owner
One anniversary, a birthday, and Mother's day later and we're heading home! The place is beautiful and the area around it just as much so! Thank you for sharing this awesome place and for letting us stay here for the weekend!
PS. Stay out past dark, the lightning bugs are the coolest!
