About

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 3, Mourning Dove Haus

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 queen beds in the Loft (accessed by spiral staircase), 1 claw foot Bath with Shower, Full kitchen with living room. Shares a large deck w/ Whipporwhill Haus

We had a great time staying here. The kids absolutely love staying in the loft upstairs, while we stayed in the master bedroom downstairs. The spiral staircase, would work, full kitchen, communal outdoor fire pit, deck, and location All came together for a fantastic stay. We will definitely return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River Road treehouses. The treehouse was clean, well-appointed, cozy and a perfect getaway. The kids loved exploring the dry creek bed and the Guadalupe river. We took full advantage of the commons area and the fire pits and had a bonfire and s'mores night. We came with another family and rented the treehouses that share the large deck, so cookouts every night and siping our coffee on the deck every morning. It was wonderful. We would definitely come back.

Overall it was great! The best part was the deck between the two cabins that we all hung out at after floating the river. It was great to eat on, play games, and just catch up with one another. However the one bathroom was challenging and the loft is not great for middle aged women going up and down especially in the middle of the night. Also the tub is not easy to get in and out of for us older gals. Customer service was great as well and everyone was very helpful.

We really enjoyed it here. It's a different way to enjoy a staycation that isn't at your typical hotel. We found the cabins clean and equipped with our needs. There are plenty of activities to get into that are close by. We enjoyed shooting at Dietz Gun Range, wine tasting at La Cruz de Comal Wines, a trip across the street to River Park, and a must see sunset at Canyon Lake. We would definitely recommend River Road to friends and family and would consider staying again!

The check in and out process are the best i have ever experienced anywhere! I Loved the location and the decor. There were a few issues with dust and a broken drawer in the kitchen. The AC was dripping inside behind the couch, but everything was comfy and you couldn't beat the scenery and the location. The Guadalupe river was just a short walk away. It couldn't have been easier to get to.

We wished the guad was flowing right under our porch, but that wasn't a deal breaker once we experienced this place. I loved the app and how everything was organized electronically! The staff handled our needs so promptly and professionally when we messaged them! We will definitely go back soon!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the River Road Mourning Dove Treehouse! There is plenty of room to stretch out and everything is supplied from cable and wifi to dishes and extra trash bags. The location is convenient and close to everything from tubing to German restaurants and antique stores while still being privately tucked away in the woods. We played outside and in the creek below the house with our toddler and later had a romantic date night while watching the stars and listening to the wildlife from the deck and porch. It's so peaceful that you don't even notice the neighbors!! We shared lots of pics and have already recommended the Treehouses to our friends and family. It's worth every penny!

It was very impressed.

The house is wonderfully located in the trees. It was clean and pretty well furnished. We did have to call for a new coffee pot, and they brought it that day. Very prompt, appropriate service.

We had a wonderful time. The rental was clean and quiet, despite it being full that weekend. The stairway is perfect for kids but very narrow for adults, so use caution. Bathtub is great! Great wifi and Netflix is available as well which was great as it rained. Park across the street on the river is spacious. Lots of room for sitting and relaxing at the park and at the unit outside. Kitchen is fully stocked with ample pots and pans. Would have liked some bowls and a few more glasses. Only 6 miles from Canyon Lake Rec areas too!

The treehouse had everything we needed. My nine year old loved the loft plus it had its own TV and couch. The only thing is that the staircase to get to it is very tiny, so you have to be a small person to be able to climb it. Also, the house could use a good dusting and better vacuuming as I could see dirt on the carpet and sofa when I had just checked in. Besides that, everything was very nice and comfortable. My kids enjoyed watching the cows in the property behind the houses, and deer.

Only downfall during our stay were: The creek was dry (but we made the best of it) and there are ALOT of spiders in and outside around the tree house (guess its to be expected, just wasnt prpared).

We arrived late into the evening ready to be in our cabin. We had perfect instructions on how to get to and in the cabin. We were taken aback instantly and forgot to unpack! There was just the two of us, but we loved getting to explore the whole place and nap/watch TV in different places. There was plenty of room and the bathroom was my husbands FAVORITE. The copper tub was perfect, and there was room enough for us both! :) The kitchen had everything we needed as did the patio and the view was worth it all. We had great access to the river and were actually the only ones there! It was perfect and we loved how we were taken care of yet were not bound by office check in hours or house keeping. The cabin is so close to many attractions, and great food yet out of the big city. We could have never left the cabin and still would have had a perfect honeymoon! Coming back for sure in the future.

The staircase was very narrow, so it wasn't too fun for the girls after we came back from our night out, but they made it. Also, if you prefer thicker blankets bring your own. Overall we had a great experience here.
