New Braunfels Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 2, Cardinal Casita

The moment you arrive at our property and see the enormous eighty foot cypress trees with decades old wild mustang grapevines hanging from their limbs, and a 100’ footbridge that takes you safely across the seasonal creek to your private tree house, you realize you are in a special place.

“Wait a minute, did you say a treehouse?” many people ask. Yes, but this is not your childhood plywood fort of days gone by. Our treehouses are newly constructed, engineered custom cabins with all the conveniences of modern living including air conditioning/heat, wi-fi, satellite TV, kitchen and bathroom.

Picture your own custom cabin, with attached private deck and an open living, dining area and kitchen with a loft above and a master suite attached and a fully functioning bathroom with a walk in shower. The treehouses are actually attached to the large hardwood trees that run along a seasonal creek, which lend to the picturesque setting that will give you an overall exhilarating experience.

We are very fortunate to be located near a very beautiful section of the Guadalupe River on River Road between New Braunfels and Canyon Lake. Though not right on the river, our cabins sit over the seasonal dry creek bed and have 400 feet of river access across River Road with hammocks, picnic tables, fire pits and chairs for your use as well as a nice grassy area to hang out, wade in the water or tube.

Also be aware for those guests staying in the lofts upstairs, our cabins are custom built around the trees, to decrease the weight of the structure, we used spiral staircases to the loft which can be a bit narrow, but it is part of the charm of our treehouse cabins.

Since we are so centrally located, you will be able to easily access and enjoy many of the best places the Texas Hill Country has to offer including river access from our property, Canyon Lake (a boat ramp is only minutes away), Whitewater Amphitheater, River Road Icehouse, Koozies, historic Gruene Hall, Schlitterbahn and the many attractions New Braunfels has to offer, which is 11 miles from the treehouses.

Many of our guests come here to tube and enjoy the Guadalupe River and take advantage of the ease in which they can access and enjoy the river by simply walking across River Rd. to the river access. By taking a shuttle up river and simply floating back down to the river access, you can tube with your group very easily!

**KAYAKS and TUBES ARE NOT included, but can be rented at nearby outfitters. After a long day of tubing and river fun many of our guests enjoy relaxing and barbecuing along the banks of the river recounting the day’s excitement. Afterwards you can enjoy the nightlife and many live music venues nearby or simply hang out with your family and friends on your private treehouse deck.

After a day or two of tubing and river fun, many guests change pace and rent a deck or ski boat at Canyon Lake or go to New Braunfels to enjoy Schlitterbahn Waterpark. When your group is ready for shopping, Gruene Market Days or the San Marcos Outlet Malls are only short drives away.

While all of these activities described above are the main reasons many of our guests come to stay, others simply come for a quick escape from the city to recharge their batteries and enjoy the relaxing sounds of the croaking frogs or chirping crickets at night as they watch for shooting stars in the starlit sky. Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, you will find it here.

Come for a romantic weekend getaway or try your hand in the blue ribbon trout fishing on the Guadalupe. Our property is located next to the spot on the river where they often times stock the trout which makes it a great place to fish! You can wade the river yourself or hire a fly-fishing guide to take you down the river in a raft or fishing boat.

Why Best Texas Travel Representative chose New Braunfels

We initially found this property while we were enjoying the beautiful drive along River Rd. Though originally vacant, we absolutely fell in love with this piece of land which had huge trees and really good river access. After thinking for some time about what we could do with the property, the idea came to us to build treehouses in the majestic hardwood, cypress and pecan trees that lined the creek taking advantage of the beautiful canopy view this property possessed.

Shortly thereafter, we began researching treehouse building techniques and were amazed at all the information we found (there is actually a treehouse builders organization as well as people who make and sell specific tree house hardware.) After much planning and engineering we began building our treehouses in the winter of 2010 and finished at the end of July, 2010. We love this property because of the way in which the tree-houses are set and nestled in the trees and the convenience to all the fun activities and venues the area has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

This is to our knowledge the only treehouse rental complex in the area. You will absolutely enjoy staying here among the tall cypress and pecan trees. The creek is seasonal, though it typically runs ½ of the year (as long as we get rain every 3-4 weeks) and is very soothing to listen to. It is so pretty and our river access is fantastic! We invite our friends over often and try to stay as much as possible ourselves.

We loved our stay at Cardinal Casita. Our only disappointment was the sofa. It has seen better days and was not at all comfortable to sit on. Loved the claw foot tub!!! Loved the wainscoting and the hardy board on the walls and ceiling. Adorable well built house. Will visit again and do recommend!!

Love the place. The stairs need to be wider. The beds upstairs make noises when turning over. Over all a great place. We are looking forward to renting it again.

Beautiful cabin with beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

We were very surprised how roomy and cozy the cabin was inside. The bedroom is large with a kings size bed and the loft was perfect for my two children. We enjoyed the many deer we saw roaming around just behind our cabin. There is also a large deck not pictured that has lots of room for grilling or just hanging out. I would definitely recommend my friends to stay here and already have. We will be back, soon!

Beautiful and Peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The Cardinal Casita was a beautiful and very comfortable cabin with peaceful surroundings. It had a nice patio, perfect for morning coffee and reading our books. It gave us a very restful getaway, something we needed. We were thrilled to watched the deer and wild turkey feed in the evenings and we enjoyed our walk to the Guadalupe River during the day.

We hope to come back again as it was a wonderful place to get away from it all. Thank you, Mike, at Riedel Realty, llc., for all your assistance.

Treehouses

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented 4 treehouses for the Thanksgiving holiday. They are adorable! I love how they are set in the trees at the top of a valley. So...you feel like you are up high, but don't have to climb. The location is great as well-nice and quiet. I would definitely recommend the River Road Treehouses!
