Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Come sleep in one of our Geronimo tipis! The tipis are amazing. There are 5 in total surrounding a stock tank pond located on 4.5 acres (Geronimo Creek Retreat) that borders the beautiful spring-fed Geronimo Creek. Great for family getaways or rent all 5 tipis for larger groups! They look like a traditional tipi from the outside but inside they are fully furnished and have all the conveniences of modern day living including air conditioning, heating, basic satellite TV, kitchenette with sink, under-counter refrigerator, stove top and extra large toaster oven. Each Tipi comes with its own private bathroom with a large walk in tiled shower. The bathroom is located in a separate building, all of the tipis have their own private bathroom.

Geronimo Creek Retreat is an oasis of peace and fun nestled in the pecan trees overlooking a babbling creek in the heart of nature and on the edge of Texas Hill Country. We also have 4 tree-house cabins (1 bedroom with a loft) on the property and a 3 bedroom house for rent, these properties can also be found on the HomeAway site and our website.

Do you long to swim and fish in the creek like you were a kid again? Want to throw some horseshoes or drink a cold one while you chill out in a lawn chair enjoying the feel of warm Texas sunshine on your face? Envision your own cozy tipi with plush furniture, fully equipped kitchenette, private bathroom and gorgeous view, not to mention BBQ pit for grilling, picnic table and fire pit for chatting or just relaxing with your friends and family. Imagine escaping from the real world for a while.

The retreat also has a community game room with big screen TV, ping pong table and a large covered area with picnic tables and a community hot tub. The creek has excellent fishing. We have a dock with kayaks and kayaks for guests use. We also keep tubes, lawn and lounge chairs, and life jackets for your convenience.

Why Best Texas Travel Representative chose Texas Hill Country

New Braunfels and the surrounding area has so much to offer: tons of Live Music venues, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Gruene Hall (which is the oldest dance hall in Texas), the beautiful Guadalupe and Comal Rivers which have excellent tubing, the picturesque Canyon Lake and Lake Placid which offer fun daily boat rentals and the many great restaurants located down town as well as the great tasting local BBQ and burgers in the area! We are also a short drive from the San Marcos outlet malls as well as San Antonio to see the Alamo, River Walk, Sea World and much more.

What makes this cabin unique

In one word: Tipi! Why stay in a condo or hotel when you can have the unique experience of staying in a plush and air-conditioned Tipi which sits on a beautiful property

The Geronimo Creek is a gorgeous spring fed creek lined with centuries old great big pecan trees. The water is cool and inviting, our location has been a favorite Texas swimming hole since the 1930’s though all of the accommodations are newly built.

Do you long to swim and fish in the river like you were a kid again? Want to relax with a cold drink while you chill out in a lawn chair enjoying the feel of warm Texas sunshine on your face? Geronimo Creek Retreat is such a peaceful, beautiful and relaxing property that people just fall in love with it and want to come back right away.

Though you feel like you are way out in the county when you are on the property, due to the silence at night and the bright stars overhead, we are conveniently located just minutes away from all the fun activities, shopping and great restaurants that New Braunfels, Gruene and San Marcos have to offer. Lake Placid is also very nearby and has boat rentals for you to enjoy! Seguin is conveniently close with an HEB supermarket, Walmart should you need groceries or forget anything.

Reviewer Comments:

Cute place, very unique and fun. My friends and I were not prepared for the amount of feral cats living on the property (at least 15-20). Also, I do not believe the cleaning crew put fresh sheets on our beds, when lifting my top sheet, the bed was full of dirt/sand and the under side of the comforter had a large stain.

I had no idea what to expect, but Geronimo creek was truly one of my favorite vacations ever. The tipi concept is so unique but at the same time functional and very comfortable. My family enjoyed every second of it and will definitely return.

Reviewer Comments:

I'm speaking for 16. It was a great experience. We loved the tipis and the large outside are. We had low expectations because some of us don't like camping and it far exceeded our expectations. Here were the cons: lots of wild hungry cats, little light outside after dark and river water is kinda dirty. A couple of tips are do not cook inside due to electricity shortage and bring toys and games to spend all day outside. We brought lots of food to grill and ice chests full of drinks. We had a blast. We had adults and kids of all ages at the spot. Not everyone stayed in the 3 tipis we rented. We want to come back but it looks like they are building more lodges and the area may be too small to accommodate everyone.

Reviewer Comments:

Although spending $145 a night (Easter weekend) was way too much to pay for a teepee, it was worth having a great birthday weekend for my son. He loves fishing and camping so this was a big treat for him. The teepee was nice and spacious for the four of us. I liked that we had a small fridge and kitchenette inside the teepee (It was good for food prep) as well as our own personal grill and fire pit. We enjoyed the small pond for fishing and the kayaks for drifting down the creek. Even though the property was full of guests that weekend (there was a big party tent camping on the property), it was still so nice and peaceful. My son loved that he could wake up and go fishing right outside his teepee. He was able to catch quite a few fish while there. There were only a few things that stop me from giving a 5 star rating. One, our bathroom was not as clean as it should've been. It seemed that someone rushed to get it cleaned. Two, the beds were not very comfortable according to my husband and kids. I, on the other hand, had a softer bed so no complaints from me. Three, there were stray cats EVERYWHERE! I love animals but the cats were constantly near our food prep areas. One even tried to take the fish off my son's hook. Lastly, the property is still in a neighborhood (quiet) so it's not out in the country as much as we had hope. Overall, a great stay for a perfect birthday celebration. We would definitely come back, but I would come when the rates aren't so high.

It was grate for the Kids but we had dificulties to get out the river after using the ropes, since the dock was missing or not stairs as in the past.

Got away at the last minute with my two kids for New Years. The tipi wasn't clean when we showed up but the staff was helpful and friendly and cleaned it up. This was the only hitch, the rest of the stay was awesome. Kids and I had fun and loved the experience. We will be back.

Map

Geronimo Creek Retreat, is located only minutes from all the fun activities, live music, shopping and great restaurants that New Braunfels, Gruene and San Marcos have to offer yet it feels like it is a million miles away. Bright stars shine at night, and but for the occasional Owl hoot and cricket chirps it is peaceful and quiet. You will absolutely fall in love with this place, families and friends come back year after year.

The nearest town, Seguin is just a few miles away and has all the necessities you need including: HEB supermarket, Walmart, and wide variety of restaurants and shops should you need groceries or forget anything. The small town of Geronimo is also a few miles away and has some of the best antique shopping in the area.
