About the property

Treetops sleeps 8- Two Bedrooms with Queens, Two bathrooms, Two Futons

The Treetops Cottage sits on the banks of the Beautiful Guadalupe River and is a stone's throw to Gruene Texas, home of the famous Gruene Hall. Managed by Susan Phillips with

Vacation New Braunfels

You will be close enough to walk to Gruene for some fabulous dining, dancing, and shopping . The river outfitters are right next door but at the same time you will feel like you are miles away. Treetops sits alone on several acres of land and you can get in or out of the Gaudalupe river from your back yard.

The home has two levels and each level has a deck from one end of the home to the other so you can take in beautiful river scenery. There is a large covered area for grilling and entertaining with a grill, picnic table and plenty of seating.

Just about 1 mile down the road you will find New Braunfels Texas and there is much more to do and enjoy there.

Like Schlitterbahn (world famous water park) and the Comal river for a calmer floating experience. Treetops is about 45 minutes from Austin and San Antonio Texas.

Convenience: This is the most convenient home on the Guadalupe river to Gruene. You will not find another river home that is within walking distance... at least not this close! Our back yard backs up the rapids that you see in Gruene when you pass over the bridge!

Home and Yard: This home was built in 2001 and is fresh and clean! We have kept things simple in the house to reflect the whole reason for getting away. Being that we are so close to Gruene you will enjoy the fact that the house sits on stilts. You are literally up in the trees...hence the name 'Treetops'. This provides plenty of privacy and a sense of nature. There is plenty of room to spread out...with the two decks on each level and the bottom level under the home for rainy days plus there is an area close to the river with a concrete slab and picnic table.

River Access: The Guadalupe River floats right on by in the back yard....You can get in here and enjoy shallow running water, to the right you will find fast flowing rapids or go left for deeper calmer water. Go upstream and float the river down to Treetops. There are two river outfitters right next door.

Pretty cool

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! Well equipped and close to Gruene hall. Only recommendation is to re build the fence on the side next to the tubing company for an added sense of privacy.

We had a great trip! Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of eight of us stayed at the Treetops for a couple of nights and we had a blast! I only wish we could have stayed longer! The location is AWESOME! You can walk next door to go tubing or you can go relax in the water behind the house. I definitely recommend this house for anyone looking to chill on the river this summer!

Beautiful house!!! Right on the Guad, close to Rockin R, Gruene River Company and a short distance up the hill to Gruene. At the moment, the guad is not running so we went to float the Comal.. this house is still a perfection location to everything in New Braunfels/Gruene. The deer are amazing in the morning/night. Great patio above and below!! Love this place, you will not be disappointed and Jodi is a pleasure to work with!! We are looking to make this an annual trip!!

Owner's Response: It is so nice of you to take the time to write a nice note about Treetops. I know just who you are and I hope you will be returning for years to come. The Guadalupe is very low right now but you are right at Treetops you have the option to do so much more in the area. I am so glad you had fun and I am glad to hear that the deer are still coming around! Thanks a million!
