Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 4, 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, you realize you are in a special place. When you notice the footbridge attached to the trees will take you safely across the seasonal creek and to your private tree house, you know you have found an amazing place to stay. The Tree Houses are LOCATED on the OPPOSITE side of River Road from the Gaudalupe River. We do have a river access area for our guests across the road from us.

“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, wi-fi, cable, 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 claw foot tub and shower feature.
The treehouses are actually attached to the large hardwood trees that run along the creek, which lend to the picturesque setting that will give you an overall exhilarating experience.

**Our cabins are custom built around the trees, the spiral staircases to the loft are a bit narrow, but it is part of the charm of our treehouse cabins.

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 river access across River Road with a nice grassy area to hang out, wade in the water or tube. 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 and River Road Icehouse, historic Gruene Hall, and New Braunfels, 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 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 barbequing 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 (we can even arrange for babysitters!) 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 flyfishing guide to take you down the river in a raft or fishing boat.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: I am the full time manager of the River Road Tree-houses and want to make your stay with us the best possible. Whether you need a recommendation to eat, information on tubing outfitters or something taken care of in your cabin I am on call to take care of your needs.

                      Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels:
                      **PLEASE ALSO CHECK OUT our other 5 River Road cabins, please e-mail an inquiry or call us about other availability. Also, check out the GERONIMO CREEK RETREAT on HomeAway. 4 treehouse cabins, 5 custom tipis and our Homestead home located on HomeAway, We originally purchased this property in 2009. We drove by and fell in love with the big trees and river access. After thinking for some time about what he could do with the property, the idea came to us to build treehouses above the floodplain. We bought the land and began researching treehouse building 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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      This is to our knowledge the only treehouse rental in the area. You will absolutely enjoy staying here among the tall cypress and pecan trees. The creek is seasonal, though it runs mostly in the low season (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.
