About

Come sleep in the Trees! Cabin 4, Whippoorwill 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: Whippoorwill Haus has 2 queen beds in the Loft (accessed by spiral staircase), 1 clawfoot Bath with Shower, Shares a large deck with Mourning Dove Haus

We came for our first anniversary. The cabin was beautiful except there was no water which we were excited for. Pictures online should be updated to show that because our neighbors during the stay mentioned the same thing.

We had a wonderful time escaping the Houston area and relaxing & chilling out in nature :-) A few items I would address,
Same amount of dishes, glassware, and silverware in the unit.
The beds & pillow are very uncomfortable. We could not wait to sleep in our own beds when we returned home.

We had a awesome stay at the whippoorwill haus. The rental was very clean and had all the items we might need such as cookware and dishes. The only downfall I have to say about the house is the staircase to upstairs is kind of small. But overall we had a great experience and will be booking it again next year! However the river water was very cold in May

Wonderful weekend with family celebrating 3 graduations! We rented the two tree houses that shared a large patio. It was perfect with plenty of seating and a fabulous breeze! We had a crawfish and shrimp boil, pushed the tables together, and enjoyed wonderful two Day celebration! Everyone associated with the tree houses was very attentive to ensure our stay was perfect.

Our Family spent our first vacation together since our children all left home and had a wonderful time. The Treehouses were clean, well stocked with kitchen applicences, utensils, towels, washclothes, etc. we had a small issue with the outside lights and they were IMMEDIATELY on it. The Staff are professional and experienced. Our water access was PERFECT! We had several of our grandchildren there and even though the river was running 15 mph there is a small cove where they could play very safely in the water. We will DEFINITELY be coming back.

Overall the experience was great! We were vacationing before taking our middle daughter to college. Once we arrived we found that the description and photos on the website were a little misleading as the river was not near the cabin and the upstairs did not have an A/C unit. We spent the first day at the tree house enjoying the scenery, the river across the street, barbecuing and playing games. The second day we went to Schlitterbahn and out to eat in Gruene. It was a great location, quiet and the house was just enough for 4. We will be back and will be recommending this location for future family vacations.

We rented 3 cabins and will definitely make this a tradition for years to come.

The cabins were clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. I loved the whole set up. The fire pit, and common area was nice to utilize. We used the grills and had everything we needed the entire time. The kitchen utensils and pots and pans were fully stocked.

Love this spot! Our kids played in the river and the laid in the hammocks and enjoyed every bit of it.

Our group rented all the cabins and tree houses for a short weekend. Had a great time on the property. Super fun for kids. But glorified camping,for sure. This cabin is by far the worst on the property. Furniture looks like it got picked up off the side of the road. Poorly maintained. Needs a new/bigger water heater. Needs new bed linens and a mattress pad! Only good thing to say, my kids said the beds upstairs were comfortable. If I went back, I wouldn't stay for more than 2 nights and I would stay in a different cabin.

There was no on site personnel to assist w/ anything. This was a gift trip & the giver decided not to go on short notice, so we didn't have access to the instructions via e-mail prior to arrival, but managed to get in contact w/ the agent by phone to enter the code for unlocking. The main issue w/ this unit is that the spiral staircase is WAY undersized & wouldn't be useable by most adults in the dark. And there's no bath upstairs. It was odd to be advertised to accommodate 8-10 people, but the only mirror is in the bathroom. The vegetation was grown up interfering w/ the walkways around the tree house. There were graving cattle w/ 'scours' 5' outside the master bedroom window. Some city tourists may like that, but I live rural & prefer to be further from the livestock.

The tree house was an usual and fun experience. I liked the floorplan of the cabin. And the setting was nice nestled in trees. It backed to a farm and there were lots of deer to view which I enjoyed. Even though was in a rural setting it was not far to fun things to do and the fact that there were other cabins nestled nearby made me feel safe since I was traveling alone. This is a good set up for families and couples. The communication with the booking was great! I asked a question and within minutes someone assisted me with the question and booking.

We stayed at the River Road treehouses one day/night during our spring break. Overall it was a great stay. We had spent the three previous days in San Antonio so decided to book a night here just to relax. It was very peaceful, it's a great getaway from the city. It gets you in touch with nature, you can hear the frogs croaking at night and see deer all around. At 8AM I was driving to the donut shop (about a mile away), a deer was crossing the road. My mom was looking out the window in the middle of the night and saw a few deer sleeping on the property behind the treehouses. The directions that are emailed to us on how to get in to our treehouse were very easy to follow. We had a good stay, we need to stay longer next time.

Awesome family vacation spot. My brothers and our kids came for one night because that was the only opening available and we wish we could stay longer. Kids had a wonderful time and loved the treehouse especially with it being close to the river too.
