About Best Texas Travel Representative

This property is managed by Best Texas Travel which is a locally owned, small business who deeply cares about our guest’s comfort and over-all experience. We know you are here to relax and have a good time, so we strive to make each of our guest’s stays as enjoyable and hassle free as possible.

Why Best Texas Travel Representative chose Seguin

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 house unique

The Homestead House is the original homestead for the Geronimo Creek Retreat. It has been remodeled and updated though still retains its original charm and character. This house is great for larger families needing a little bit more space than our cabins.

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:

The Homestead Haus was rented for two nights during the middle of the week. The exterior of the house is very run down which does not show on the website. The furniture inside is nice but overcrowded. The inside décor looks like someone was a fan of the tv show "Fixer Uppers" and tried everything that they liked on the show with different techniques in each room. Three large screen tvs with remotes that sometime worked. Called and texted the office at 5:00p on the afternoon we checked in and received no response until we again called the next day. Called for assistance with getting the living room tv turned on and was told that they remote had been stolen. Very interested in watching the world series and couldn't get tv to come on. Had to hire a technician to come out and turn it on and tune it. Floor very uneven and thresholds uneven. Kitchen: ugh; inside of dishwasher completely moldy with mildew; ovens had not been cleaned in months; frying pan and spatula left uncleaned with cooking grease on them in a drawer; refrigerator had not been wiped out; microwaves messy with food spills; coffee pot had not been cleaned out.Killed roaches and a centipede. Fortunately, we did not try to cook; only brought in food to serve on paper plates. Hot water faucet in small shower would not turn off. Would never stay there again.

Everything was great Except, One of your Tree House Guest had some kind of Birthday Party and invited approx 30 unpaying guest who over took the creek ,kayaks in which the paying guests were not able to use. I thought the owner should know.

July 15, thru 17th 2017/ Geronimo Creek Retreat/ Homestead House. My family and I enjoyed every minute of our stay, in fact we had requested another night but they were booked. From the start to finish, everything was handled with expertise. I reserved on line and all communication, whether on line or in email was professional. We loved the rustic house, it was exactly as it was described on the web site. It was tidy and clean when we arrived and everything was there at our disposal that we would need. We all enjoyed the Creek with all the kayaks, paddle boards and rope swing, especially the little ones. It took us older ones back to a simpler time when you did things with your children that doesn't require being plugged in to something. We built fires at night for s'mores, played ping pong, darts, swung in the hammocks and laughed and recharged. The hot tub wasn't working, but not missed at 95 degrees, but the Creek was wonderful and refreshing. We went to Gruene Hall and walked around, we ate at Clear Springs restaurant on Hwy 49, best food and service ever. We had ages 4 to 68 and we all did not want to leave. Geronimo Creek Retreat was very secure and peaceful. I downloaded the app for all instructions and codes and it made everything very easy. Best vacation ever, we'll be back.

What a beautiful little hidden jem! We arrived at 12pm and enjoyed the property until our early check-in at 2pm! The Homestead Haus was perfect for our big family. The kids couldn't get enough of the rope swing, kayak, paddle boat and the huge game room! I actually got to relax in one of the many hammocks! Plenty of BBQs and fire pits. The kids loved the kitties that came around every morning! All the other families were friendly and fun! We are already talking about when we can go back!

We originally rented a tipi but the unit we were booked was not ready when we got there. But Patrick was quick to respond to my call and accommodated us Homestead Haus. It was a blessing in disguise,because there's actually more room and enough for all of us. We swam, paddle board, and canoed in the river where the water was refreshingly cool:-)We are animal lovers, so the cats were an extra bonus.

Map

Centrally located, Geronimo Creek Retreat, is 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.
