About

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.

The experience is nice overall but not with $200 per night. At that rate it’s insane of the company to expect the traveler to clean up after themselves at all- much less have to spray the cabin for wasps. Furthermore the pictures are misleading, the cabins aren’t near the rivee, rather across the street. The cabins are in poor repair overall (the door to our cabin didn’t lock and there was visible wood rot in several places). That being said I still was able to have a good time during my stay. The cabins are ok, just overpriced by a factor of three.

The Cabin was beautiful, very clean and spacious. The T.V. in the living room didn't work and the front big stove top didn't work. The pictures are deceiving because the cabins are not on the river or near the water. But we would stay here again.

We stay at the Birdseye Perch every 6 months. The maintenance in the cabin seems to be lacking. The garbage disposal still does not work. The main burner on the stove doesn't work. The temperature reading on the oven is unreadable. Half the lights in the living don't work. We paid good money to stay here and are a little disappointed that all these items, are still not working. The new shower is awesome. The beds are very comfortable and lots of clean fresh towels. We will return for another stay, even if these things are still not fixed. The cleaning crew is always available for any items that are needed. The overall stay was awesome. Just wished they would fix the little things that are wrong with the cabin.

All communication and organization was great. Treehouses were easy to find as well. The area is beautiful and lots of fun things to do in Gruene. We also did the Animal and Snake Zoo which was a hit with the kids. I would definitely say the kitchen utensils were definitely in need of additions/updates. A quick IKEA trip to stock up on those would be a good idea. Ours for example had no cutting board. The sheets were pretty poor quality as well...I'd replace those as well. Finally, the oven temperature has no gauge which makes cooking difficult.

My family is from Austin, and the Treehouses are the best spot for a weekend getaway trip. I've heard the summer season is very busy, but both our stays in autumn (late October and early December) were peaceful, cozy and exactly what we were looking for. We've stayed in both Mourning Dove Haus which has a rustic, log cabin feel, and Birdseye Perch, which is more sophisticated and finished - like an english cottage. The perfect spot for making cocoa, watching movies, and you might even catch a family of deer sneaking by your back windows. 5 enthusiastic stars and we will definitely be returning!

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

We arrived at the Cabin on Friday afternoon and as usual the place was perfect. Clean and well stocked with towels and coffee. We always enjoy staying at this location, because within an hour you can be in different locations to go hiking, tubing, swimming and shopping. We will be going back in the fall.

Just returned from a few days in the Birdseye Perch. What a lovely little treehouse! Very clean and well laid out. The deck is huge and had lots of room. There was even a bag of charcoal in the grill! Beautiful setting over the creek and within site or and a very short walk to the Guadalupe River where the property owners have a very large, private section of land right on the river with picnic tables and grills and hammocks and electricity. I loved this place and will be back.

Stayed in the Birdseye Perch. It was very clean and nicely appointed. From the pictures and description, we really weren't sure what to expect of the loft, but it was great- two queen beds, a cute day bed, a flat screen TV and plenty of room. We went right after the floods, so the creek was running, which was awesome- great entertainment for the kids! If I were staying in the area again with more than one other person, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We checked in on Sat afternoon, the property was clean and well stocked with towels. Coffee pot didn't work, as soon as we let them know they brought a new coffee pot. Great service. Thank you Peggy. When we needed towels we let them know and they brought in more towels and extra sheets for the bed, since we were going to stay 7 days. We have been going to the cabins for 3 years now, and always enjoy our stay. Birdseye Perch is a great cabin with plenty of room for 6-8 people.

The price was good. The location was very pretty, although it wasn't on the river like we had expected. A creek ran under it, but it was dry. The beds upstairs were very hard. The bed in the main bedroom is a spring mattress (you could feel the springs) and was very noisy. We were impressed with the bathroom at first. It had a neat, footed bathtub. Once we started using it, we were not impressed. There was no way to keep water in the tub when we took a shower.

Really enjoyed our stay here, friendly staff, great room. The only issue we had was with the claw foot tub, trying to shower in it without getting water everywhere was a task, too many breaks in the shower curtain. Besides that we really enjoyed our stay.
