If you’re looking for a quick getaway that’s different than the typical hotel, this one-of-a-kind property in New Braunfels just might be exactly what you need.

The Cardinal Casita Treehouse Cabin is every kid’s dream come true — a treehouse you can actually live in and stay the night in with the whole family. And you can rent it by the night for as little as $125 a night depending on the season (the average rate for the treehouse is $145/night throughout the year).


“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,” the listing states.

Now, this isn’t the rinky-dink treehouse that kids use as a glorified fort. On the contrary, this treehouse cabin is newly constructed with all the amenities of modern living, like air conditioning/heat, WiFi internet, satellite TV, a kitchen, a bedroom, a private deck, and more. It sleeps up to 8 guests in this open-space cabin.

“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,” the properly listing explains.

Not only can you enjoy your own private treehouse cabin, but when you stay at Cardinal Casita Treehouse Cabin, you’ll also be right near a gorgeous section of the Guadalupe River. You’ll have access to 400 feet of riverfront space across River Road with hammock, picnic tables, firepits, and chairs available for your use. You can even go tubing or kayaking if you want.

And because of its central location in the Hill Country, you’ll also have easy access to many other great attractions, like historic Gruene Hall, Whitewater Amphitheater, Canyon Lake, and Schlitterbahn (open seasonally).
