Two locations offering actual treehouses for overnight accommodations for families that we found appealing are in Leakey and New Braunfels. Neither area is a long drive from Boerne.
First, the Frio Treetop Lodge in Leakey, Texas. Frio Treetop is magical and has that "wow" factor at first sight! Enjoy inspiring sunsets from the Treetop Deck perched in a giant cypress tree overlooking the Frio River. There are multiple patios and decks for entertaining with winding rock steps leading down to another patio for river access. The Treetop Lodge, Treetop Cottage and Treehouse Deck, along with the sauna and hot tub are one private property and are rented together at one great rate! This is a fabulous place for celebrations like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, family gatherings, holidays, business and religious retreats! Fish and swim in crystal clear water. There is a shallow area for kids and a deeper area for the rope swing.
Treetop has horseshoe and washer pitching areas, a hammock, a hot tub, and a sauna. friotreetop.com/
River Road Treehouses, a nightly vacation rental property, is located on River Road next to the Guadalupe River outside of New Braunfels. This property features six custom treehouses actually attached to the trees! But don’t think you’ll be roughing it staying in a treehouse; these units are fully furnished and have all the conveniences of modern-day living including: indoor bathrooms with showers, fully stocked kitchens, wi-fi, tv with satellite and Amazon Fire, king-sized bed in the master bedroom and two queen beds in the loft. The property features a 400-foot waterfront park with hammocks, picnic tables, fire pits, and outdoor furniture. riverroadcabins.com/
