Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 6, Birdseye Perch

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: 1 Bedroom w/ King size Bed, 2 queen beds in the loft (accessed by spiral staircase), 1 claw-foot bath w/shower.

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.

this isn't a treehouse. It's an old cottage on an itty bitty piece of property. . . with noisy neighbors and a smell of disinfectant.

Reviewer Comments:

I would have to say that I was quite disappointed in this rental. Apparently the pictures were taken when it was brand new, because it isn't quite like it looks in the picture. There were many burned out light bulbs (over the sink and kitchen table and no light in the refrigerator.) The floors were dirty and the hot pink houses out your window were atrocious! Out the other window was an old beat-up property. I'm not sure how you would ever get a suitcase up the teeny-tiny spiral staircase, either. It was okay... and I might recommend it to a few folks, but the price was very steep for what you get!

Reviewer Comments:

The air condition by the refrigerator was not working properly and it starting dripping water in three to four locations which was going behind the refrigerator, we put bowels and pots and pans to collect the drips. Called and someone did come later but was unable to help. It was good we brought extra funs to help blow cooler air from bedroom to blow up towards the upstairs.

Reviewer Comments:

Despite being an one day trip, the location and facilities in this amazing compact tree house adjacent to the Guadalupe River make for a perfect weekend/weekday retreat. Nestled and built around trees they provide a gorgeous setting and you are already far away from the metroplexes as you cross the bridge and enter the house Extremely well furnished in charming Texan style you get a restful nights sleep and in the morning wake up to a sun kissed scenery full of light and shade images that soothe your eyes Wander down the river trail to a private display of the river where you hear the gentle gurgle of the river flow as it makes its way around a dappled curved river front. Watch the birds and the fishermen and the great Texas sky as you sit on a natural stone outcrop A great retreat for anyone in the Texas cities or for a visitor from out of state who wants to see the heart of Texas and its natural beauty Top it off with a visit to nearby Canyon lake and perch yourself on the top of the dam for a birds eye view downstream of the river. Visit the remoter Lake Park which gladdens your natural heart once more
