“Excellent "tree-house" cabins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We stayed at Geronimo Creek in the off-season and in fact it was right down at freezing one morning, which made the deck outside an ice rink! We were in Laughing Water cabin and it was lovely & cosy inside. Very comfortable accommodation, big beds & solid furniture, clean and well kitted out including TVs and radios/iPod connector, kitchen appliances and even some boardgames. It would've been lovely to enjoy the creek but all we could do was admire it from the deck; we did have a brief swing on the hammock and swing seat and had a game of table tennis in the common area. With more time, we would've tried the hot tub.

A minor irritation was that the wifi only really worked in the common area but being a retreat, it was probably just as well! And we would've struggled to find the place without sat nav - again, it's not called a retreat for nothing!

I'm not sure if and when I'll ever be back in the area but would happily stay there again.

Our kids wanted to go camping but we were headed to Texas for vacation. Camping in the 100 degree heat seemed like a bad idea for me. While researching places to stay in the Hill Country I came across Geronimo Creek. We reserved a tipi which promised to sleep five, provide A/C and be at a campground. All three were delivered. The tipi was surprisingly spacious inside and five of us fit comfortably. Bathrooms were close by and best of all we were provided with our own bathroom for the stay. There was a lock on the door with a code. A perfect solution I was a bit worried about needing to keep track of a restroom key for the trip. The weather was extremely hot and the A/C in the tipi was able to keep up.
Our kids enjoyed the grounds. Particularly the rope swing into the creek. There was a clubhouse and at night we would get together with another family staying at campground. The kids played games, adults chatted and were able to sneak in some quick work time using the WiFi.
We came at night and had a very hard time finding the campground. There is not a sign and the address sign is hard to spot in the dark. A larger address sign or a sign indicating we were at Geronimo Creek would have been appreciated. The bathroom could have been cleaner. I know we stayed in August and this would be the end of the busy season but the bath mat was simply filthy, cobwebs by the window and the toilet paper holder was no longer affixed to the wall. Minor things and if you think of this as camping not a problem at all. If you are thinking of this as an unusual hotel stay then a bit more annoying.
Overall we found this to be a fun, unique place to spend a few days.

We've researched for an unusual special getaway, and we found an awesome treehouse cabin ,. Cabin had a great open deck for grilling and family gathering. Other added features includes kayak, tree rope , fishing, basketball court etc...for all to enjoy. Cabin was very nice, clean and is supplies with basic necessity for cooking. Little thoughtfulness gestures such as providing little wagons so that you can pull in your load upon arrival. We stayed in the prairie flower cabin and it was perfect. Nice huge tree branch overhangs the decking area, which helps with the Texas heat and had a real feeling of a "tree house ". We decorated decking area around tree branches with lanterns to celebrate summer birthdays and it sure added special affect to our celebrations . We were thoroughly impressed with this rental and looking forward to return in the future.

Room Tip: Some cabins does not have complete tree overhanging deck area, you may need to inquire if being in a...
