New Braunfels Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 4, Whippoorwill Haus

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.

Notes: Whippoorwill Haus has 2 queen beds in the Loft (accessed by spiral staircase), 1 clawfoot Bath with Shower, Shares a large deck with Mourning Dove Haus

Why Best Texas Travel Representative chose Texas Hill Country

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.

Overall condition of the furniture/drapes/bedding was poor.The coverlet on the bed was dirty and so I did not feel comfortable using it and the heating was not functioning properly so was cold.Again all the burners on the stove top were not working and the oven started smoking when put on 450 degrees.The grill was filthy and full of ashes and burnt leftovers.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented 3 cabins and will definitely make this a tradition for years to come. The cabins were clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. I loved the whole set up. The fire pit, and common area was nice to utilize. We used the grills and had everything we needed the entire time. The kitchen utensils and pots and pans were fully stocked. Love this spot! Our kids played in the river and the laid in the hammocks and enjoyed every bit of it.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall had a great experience at this unit. Have always wanted to experience a treehouse and am glad to have booked one at this facility. Unit was clean, beds were very comfortable. I do want to point out the following; 1) was not happy with the condition of the shower curtain, it was unsanitary. 2) The current shower caddy is rusty. 3) In the kitchen/dining area the wiring on the wall is an eyesore, this should be adjusted with proper installation. Lastly, the deck outside, had cobwebs around the windows, bench and chairs as well as a few carpenter bee hives. This should be addressed for guests to feel comfortable sitting outside. If these things get addressed the overall rating as far as experience would definitely be a 5 out 5 stars.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was clean but there's some issues like the tub is pretty but leaks water everywhere; the shower curtains were dirty and needed to be replaced. The beds were kind hard on me, even though I brought my own pillows. The cleaning fee is excessive because you have to take out your trash and wash the dishes that you used. Not really kid friendly and you will be awoken at 7:00 am by the Neighboring rooster that loves the Whippoorwill porch or the neighbor's noisy chainsaw cutting the trees. Again not really friendly. Also if you go after Labor Day forget about tubing not all the Tubing places are open and the ones that are close early. ??

We had a great time in the cozy treehouse. The kids loved playing in the dry creek bed below and having there own space in the very spacious loft! Everyone was happy with their experience. Thanks for sharing!
