About

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 1, Mockingbird Lodge

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.

We had a great time, house was ok, needs some refurbishing, toilet ran all the time, sewer started buzzing as it was full so we shut it off. We did have a few **** roaches (palm beetles) so it should be sprayed often. Overall it was cute and we enjoyed our stay.

This was a great place for our family reunion. The lodge was spacious with plenty of room to cook meals, have kids take naps, and enjoy the outdoors. We rented 2 treehouses and other one (Robins Roost) gives more of a treehouse feel. The lodge is the only treehouse on the road side of the dry river bed.

What a fun place to stay! The unit was as pictured albeit aged a bit. There were only 3 of us staying in the unit so there was plenty, plenty of room to spread out. The only thing I would do differently is to grocery shop and cook all meals at the house versus driving into Gruene or New Branunfels.

We absolutely loved it!!

This is a beautiful and unique property. Very close to the river. Peaceful environment. Only issue was AC in master BR was not cooling well. We called & maintenance said we dropped the thermostat too low and the unit froze up but we only decreased the thermostat in increments because it was not cooling. That night we did not drop it below 72 but it still did not cool well. It was ok with the bedroom door open. The unit is well equipped with beautiful views.

This was a very nice place to stay. It was clean & well equiped with extra supplies. I love how close we were to the river & that we could park right by our cabin. A/C was super cold. The only thing that needed repair was the back door going to the patio would not close very well .

Check out the staff at karaoke night at Dam Big Red Barn. Excellent voices and the best hamburger I've had in years!

Overall it was a great place to stay. The river that the actual treehouse sits over is not much of a river but didn't take away from the experience. The house was very well kept and had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay comfortably. I will recommend to anyone and plan on staying their again in the future.

The overall stay was pleasant the only thing that bothered me was there were a few things that were a bit damaged. The treehouse I rented was the oldest one which gave reason for the wear and tear. It was very clean on the inside the outside needed some serious gardening. I thought the river was closer than it was but it still was close enough I could walk. The staff was amazing they were professional and helpful to any need we had. They provided almost everything we needed to feel comfortable.I would recommend the treehouses of riverroad to anyone it's a overall great place.

My friends and I spent 4 peaceful, relaxing days in a comfortable cabin next to the river celebrating my 55th....we named our experience "glamping" (glamorous version of camping).

My only complaint is that reservations and check in are heavily designed for tech-savvy folks with an iphone or android (check in app does not work with Windows phone). I can't recommend this process to my parents.

My family stayed one night at the Mockingbird lodge treehouse during spring break. We loved the view from the deck (perfect with a glass of wine at night and a cup of coffee in the morning). The location is a short drive from stores and restaurants in New Braunfels. The treehouse comes with TV's in every room and they provide several board games to play. The AC worked well, but it was not extremely hot outside during our stay. The main issue we had was the refrigerator was not working. Another issue was the outside front door light kept flickering until we turned it off. Overall though, the treehouse was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there.
