How would your child describe the perfect vacation? Would they dream of sleeping in a tipi? Or maybe bedding down high above the ground in a treehouse? At Geronimo Creek Retreat in Seguin, the whole family can do just that.
Created in 2010, Geronimo Creek Retreat brings outdoor adventure to families seeking to get away without leaving modern convenience too far behind. Forget the hassle of dragging tents, coolers, and sleeping bags with you. Instead, stay, play, and relax in accommodations that will create a memorable outdoor experience without the trouble.
Choose one of the air-conditioned tipis for your overnight stay. The tipis are fully furnished with a large sofa, two or three queen-sized beds (depending on the unit), satellite tv, charcoal grill, private fire pit, and kitchenette. A bathhouse just a few steps from each tipi provides a full, private bathroom including sink, vanity, walk-in shower, and toilet. Gather around the large fire pits after dark and share stories with family and friends while toasting marshmallows and making s’mores.
Sling a fishing pole over your shoulder and fish from the stocked spring-fed pond. A wooden pier juts toward the center of the watering hole convenient for tossing in your fishing line or lazing around turtle gazing.
The treehouse cabins located creekside take glamping to a whole different level. Built on platforms with spacious wooden decks shaded by majestic pecans, the four treehouses offer a grand survey of nature from a different perspective. Geronimo Creek burbles close by lulling you to leave behind the stress of everyday life.
Inside, the treehouses interiors made of rustic wood warm you and perpetuate the feel of the outdoors inside. The cabin’s layout includes a downstairs master bedroom with a king-size bed swathed in luxurious linens. Upstairs the loft contains two queen beds and a roll-away trundle bed perfect for tucking in tired littles.
