Relaxing on the upstairs deck, you’ll enjoy the sites of the bountiful species of birds, the colors of beautiful butterflies and the sounds of nature.

When you’re ready to antique shop, you have but a short trip to historic Main Street Smithville where several antique stores are located. There are other places to visit in Smithville for dining and the many sites that were used in the filming of the movies 'Hope Floats' and 'The Tree of Life.' But be forewarned....once you’ve arrived at The Treehouse, you may never want to leave!

Bring your bikes as you may want to venture out on the country road and take in a closer look at the beautiful countryside.

See our webpage at touringtexas.com/treehouse: The Treehouse Cabin is centrally located. Here are some of the things you might want to do during your visit:

· Rent a canoe or kayak from Rising Phoenix in Bastrop and follow the Colorado River Trails.

· Play golf at one of the 5 public golf courses that are close by.

· Take a walking or driving tour of Historic Smithville

· Visit the Painted Churches

· Visit the Shiner Brewery

· Check out the San Marcos Outlet Mall, one of the largest in the country, just an hour away.

· Visit the 2 State Parks that are just a short drive away

· Visit the Railroad Museum in Smithville, or the Antique Car Museum in Rosanky

· Pick fallen pecans in November from the tree-lined streets in Smithville

· Visit Dream Train Antiques-mention that you are staying at the Treehouse and receive a 10% discount

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!

*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.

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

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.

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!

Spring Break Family Getaway

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our stay at the Treehouse Vacation Cabin was great! We really enjoyed ourselves. My wife liked the little notes around the house, thought it was a great “home” feel. The welcome basket was a very nice touch and the kids enjoyed making smores and flying the kite. It was also very nice to have the extra fire wood (very welcome on a couple of those cold mornings!)

Property and house were great. House was clean and had everything we needed. Even though it was hot during the day outside, it was nice in the evening with the breeze blowing under the house. River was decent, even caught a few fish. It was a great weekend.

Notes:
Many of our guests consider The Treehouse as 'their own' vacation home. They arrive, knowing that the house and grounds will be ready for them. They only need to bring their food and personal items. Our guests comment about how The Treehouse is so clean, organized and provides much more than they expected. Our canine guests love The Treehouse. The upper deck is fenced and gated, which allows our canine guests to be outside and their owners don't worry about them running off. We have extra sheets to cover the furniture if our canine guests like to lounge. If our canine guests should get a little dirty, the outdoor shower with hot/cold water helps to clean them up. Should you like to have others join you, The Treehouse has RV connections. Although The Treehouse is private, it is also a great place for family reunions, corporate getaways, and weddings.
