About

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 2, Cardinal Casita

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: 2 full beds in the Loft (accessed by spiral staircase), 1 clawfoot Bath with Shower.

We took a Mother/Daughter trip to the treehouses in October and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The weather was perfect. Everything was exactly as depicted. Even watched a family of deer out back each morning and evening. We brought fire logs and enjoyed the community fire pit. Was prepared for lots of mesquitos but never saw a single one. We have been talking about this trip since we returned. Highly recommended it!

We enjoyed our visit. The cabin was clean, and nice. The AC unit was a little scary with the note left about it freezing up. We were scared to use it. Luckily, a cold front blew thru and we didn't need it. Our neighbors were extremely noisy. We emailed the manager, and they said they let them know about the noise complaint, however they didn't stop. There was no one who stays on site to enforce this. THey partied hard with strobe lights and music until 12:30, and started back up again at 9:30 the next morning. That would be my biggest complaint. I would have liked someone to enforce that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cardinal Casita, River Road Treehouses. The arrangement of the sleeping areas was perfect for our family of four and our two tween daughters were thrilled to have their own space in the loft. The kitchen was a bit small with only enough room for one person to cook. The property was very clean and well-maintained. When we had an issue with the wifi, it took only one call to the management to solve the problem. We made a day trip to the Blue Hole in Wimberly (about 30 minutes away) which was a great find. I would definitely recommend the Cardinal Casita to anyone who is traveling to the New Braunfels area and looking for a unique affordable place to stay.

We had a wonderful time in the Cardinal Casita Treehouse. The accommodations were well maintained, spacious and adequately furnished for our needs.
I brought family from Germany to visit our son at UT Austin, then we stayed 2 nights at the River Road property in New Branfels, taking a day trip to San Antonio to see the Alamo & Riverwalk. We walked the river & enjoyed the pasture backing up to the property, watching deer from the large Pavilion. We cooked out on the grill for our evening dinners & made breakfast both mornings. It was perfect. I came prepared with all the fixings, and the kitchen had enough cooking pans/utensils to get our meals prepared.
I highly recommend this property.

It was last weekend in February and the weather was cold and drizzled but we had a great time.

The cabins were beautiful and well equipped with anything you needed. Just bring your food, clothes and a personel items and you were good to go. A grocery store was a few minutes away and they were welcoming as well. What a great experience and everyone wants to make this a yearly stay. Thanks so much! Excellent !

Oh My, What a wonderful Thanksgiving we enjoyed. The houses were perfect for adults and children! I awakened every morning to leaves gently falling, squirrels running up and down the trees, and a doe with two fawns playing in the creek! The Cardinal Casita (and two other houses) provided a peace that was so much more effective than medicine!! I have already recommended the treehouses to others who were amazed, as I was) that they existed. There were all the amenities of regular hotel rooms except no slamming of the doors or hallway noise....what a blessing to spend a peaceful time with the family. The staff (Patrrick & Lexi) was very helpful and were true professionals!!! We were blessed with this opportunity and are planning another trip as soon as possible!

Nanacamp has been our family tradition for the past 14 years. This year's visit to the treehouse was so far our favorite destination. We had fun on the river, eating at Gristmill, exploring Gruene antiques and just spending rime with our grandchildren, Mattilyn 16 and Wyatt 14. This may be the last year they want to have Nanacamp, so we ended on a high.
