After a very hectic Christmas season, my wife and I were just looking to get away with our 4 kids to somewhere quiet where we could just enjoy being a family. We thought about going to the Gaylord, but were turned off by the prospect of crowds as they were wrapping up Christmas this weekend. My boss had said he... More

Dear JonesyBear, Thank you for your review. I'm glad that the Treehaus was able to provide you with a successful getaway during the busy holiday season. 701 is a favorite among many of our guests because of the river views that it holds. Like you mentioned, New Braunfels is centered between a wide variety of activities even when the Waterpark... More

We bought a Groupon and stayed at the Treehaus Luxury Suites on Schlitterbahn's off season. We stayed in 701, which was a 2 bedroom on the corner of the line. Perfect location with views and privacy. Great accommodations for family. Full kitchen and comfortable beds. Fun "tree" trunks throughout the cabin. Very beautiful wood floors and walls, plus high ceilings.... More

I stayed in a 2 bdrm condo. It's old but I didn't see any problems with it. The place could easily fit 8. Beds were comfy and the heater worked well. Nice size kitchen with separate room with washer/dryer. Small bbq pit in the back. 1/2 bath downstairs, full bath upstairs. Would definitely stay there again. I can see it... More

Stayed in a one bedroom suite on the old side for a quick getaway. Room was clean Nd well kept. Back porch opened to the Comal River for a great view. We were here in the off season and enjoyed a walk with deer and the ducks. There is a train track very near, but that didn't bother us. We... More

Dear David P, Thank you for your review. I'm happy to read that we helped in delivering a quick getaway; so many of our rooms along the Comal River are little gems that help our guests escape and tuck them away in nature. I feel we're uniquely the smallest, big resort you'll find; quietly situated in a special part of... More

Rooms were dated and generally not in very good repair. Location on the river was very nice. The wine tasting was very good. Very convenient to Gruene and Landa Park. Was part of a romantic get away. Probably would not go back again for that purpose. Would return to go to the water park or river.

We stayed at the resort on the old side. The patio looked out onto the gator pool. It was quiet - we didn't hear our neighbours. Having a kitchen was fantastic as we brought along groceries and snacks. It was nice to come back to the resort for some downtime whenever we needed it. The room came with the water... More

My husband and I found a deal off season on Groupon just as a little mini vaca during Thanksgiving time. I was a little weary because a man had commented on a review that it wasn't a place he would ever take his wife as a get away. But as soon as we got here it was just what we... More

Stayed here for WurstFest with another couple. Room 156. Great location and the shuttle to WurstFest was nice. Staff was friendly and ended up compensating 15%. Room price was double what it should be for the quality. We couldn't walk barefoot because the first bedroom carpet was WET, black, stinky, gross and worrisome. No luxuries here guys. Kind of room...
