Book an amazing one-of-a-kind experience in one of these glamping treehouse rentals in Texas.
Fall camping is upon us, and what better way to enjoy the great outdoors than in a treehouse cabin in the sky! A glamping tree house is a cabin of sorts built in a tree – not all are in trees on this list – some are on stilts, but they are high above the ground, and you must climb stairs to get inside. For unique glamping experiences, book one of these Texas treehouse rentals in Texas. It’s more of an experience than anything else.
Sometimes it’s just as fun underneath a treehouse than inside. You can have a party at Silver Spur, play games, and listen to the water foundation. – in Canton, TX
Unique Treehouse Rentals In Texas – Best Time To Go
The best time to go glamping is in cooler weather to enjoy the outdoors and all the surroundings. When I go camping or glamping, I like to hike and wander around the property. But if you’re only going for the treehouse experience and don’t plan to go outside, then it doesn’t matter when you go because most glamping sites come equipped with A/C and heat.
The Lone Star State can sometimes be quite stingy regarding cool weather. However, who needs cool weather or warm weather when glamping in treehouses that offer air conditioning and heat? Bring a book and relax. Some of these treehouses have more amenities than most people have in their homes. That might be a stretch, but glamping in a treehouse is a step above camping in a cabin.
I sometimes like camping in plain ole cabins, especially when my grandson comes along – he loves it! But this article is about bumping up your cabin experiences into unique glamping experiences. Scope out these treehouses in Texas and pick the one that resonates with you and your family.

Escape the city life to one of these unique stays in Texas on this list. You’ll find some of the best treehouse rentals in Texas right here. Let’s go!
1. Savannah’s Meadow Treehouses
Farmersville (East Texas)
A romantic treehouse getaway for you and the one you love is located about an hour’s drive east of Dallas. Staying at Savannah’s Meadow will make you want to propose to your partner, or you’ll want to say your vows all over again—it’s the perfect romantic getaway for all things loving.
While strolling outdoors on foot, you may want to grab an available bike on the property and go for a long ride on the trails. You can also jump in a canoe and take off to explore the area on the water.
This bedroom photo belongs to the Majestic Oak Treehouse. This treehouse sits 25ft in the air, is built in a tree over 200 years old, and has three distinct areas attached to it – the main room (with Crows Nest), main bedroom, and bathroom complete with glass shower.
Pro Tip: Plan to book your stay for a romantic weekend well in advance – their calendar can get full at times.
2. The Alexander At Creek Road
A Dripping Springs Treehouse Rental
The gateway to the Texas Hill Country (via Austin) awaits you at one of The Alexnder at Creek Road Treehouse rentals. Four private treehouse suites sleep 2 and 2-4 people with fantastic hill country views. They are all nestled together and would be a great option for a large group.
Gather on the common upper deck or enjoy a fire pit below for your get-together. Besides the big windows and scenic views, these treehouses have premium beds, mini-fridges, TVs, a coffee bar, and nice bathrooms with showers. I don’t think you’ll go without at this place.
If this one doesn’t suit your fancy, Central Texas has plenty of treehouse getaways throughout the hill country. There are more options below.
3. River Road Treehouses – Lovely Tree Houses on the Guadalupe River
Treehouse Camping In New Braunfels
I don’t know much about these Guadalupe River cabins, but I do know New Braunfels like the back of my hand and always love visiting there, especially the small town of Gruene, but more so the river. My family will never tire of going to the Guadalupe.
Check out River Road Treehouses for treehouse rentals and cabin rentals by the river. These treehouses have a full kitchen, a full bathroom, king & queen beds, a private porch, and a shared BBQ area. Be sure to check the minimum night requirements before you book your rental.
4. Skybox Cabins
Glen Rose, Texas
You’ll find 50 acres of native live oaks, cedars, a creek that feeds into the Paluxy River (hope for rain), and plenty of animals roaming the land. Skybox Cabins seems to be a delightful place to stay with family. Several places to rent here are like a dream come true for many. I want to experience it. Skybox Cabins were featured in Texas Living Magazine and Southern Living – so you know they are nice!
When in Glen Rose, go to the Dinosaur Valley State Park, less than a mile away, and there is so much to do there. Kids love it here, especially if the dinosaur tracks are visible (hope for no rain).
Places to eat in Glen Rose:
- Big Cup Eatery
- Blackies Bait Shop
- Blackies On The Square
- Grounded Coffee Shop
5. Frio River Treetop
The Frio River has never looked so good from below in this treetop glamping site. I remember floating the Frio with my extended family a few years ago. It was quite a fun trip, but I remembered there was no cell service, and I had to call for help to find the cabin. I also remember the water being low; instead of floating on the tube, we sometimes had to walk the tube! But still, it was fun on the river.
Frio Treetop is meant for a large gathering – like 20 people! It’s three treehouses, and they all rent to the same group. WOW!! A Treetop Deck is perched in a giant cypress tree overlooking the Frio River, with several patios and decks for entertaining. Sauna and hot tub, too. It’s an excellent place for one big celebration. No pets here.
6. Cypress Valley
Spicewood – Texas Hill Country
Cypress Valley is a magical place, as it says on the website. It is also a wedding and event area. I’d seek this one out for a romantic time in the woods.
These treehouse rentals have been in the news several times. Oh, which one will you choose – the one with many spiral staircases, Juniper that you have to walk a platform to get to, or the Yoki Treehouse that’s $625 a night? Any of these is a unique experience you must try if spending nights in the sky is your thing.
7. Treehouse Utopia
Utopia is located in South Texas near Bandera and about a 1.5-hour drive from downtown San Antonio. Treehouse Utopia has four treehouse rentals, all high up in the trees, with many stairs to climb and fairy lights to adore. Treehouses have a bedroom, sitting room, full bathroom with a clawfoot tub, and a private deck for relaxation. Glamping treehouse rentals start at $475/night.

There is a king-size bed for the parents, a community playground underneath the treehouse for the kids, and a pool for all. There is also a spiral staircase and many more amazing amenities.

9. The Silver Spur Resort
Canton, TX (East Texas)
It’s just as fun underneath as on top! Silver Spur Resort’s newest addition is a glamping treehouse with an ideal spot outside for picnics and family games. It has a queen-size bed, bunk beds, a bathroom, a small kitchenette, and a kitchen table. Silver Spur also offers cabins and the coolest Constego Wagons for rent if you have a large group or if you want to experience sleeping in a wagon like the pioneers once did. Picnic tables, a swing, and a vast area to play are also available when renting the treehouse.
I’ve stayed in one of their wagons and this treehouse; both are an experience. My grandson enjoyed his time at both, especially fishing in the pond and running around the entire place without me watching over him. I felt very secure here.
You’re lucky if you choose to stay here because their restaurant, Q & Brew Barbecue, is just a short walk from the treehouse. It’s great when you don’t want to cook outdoors on the provided charcoal BBQ grill.
There is a lovely swimming pool, and other outdoor games are available for guests who stay here. There are also plenty of spaces for RVers to park their RVs and stay as long as they like.
Things to do in the area:
- Canton First Monday
10. Best Day Ever Ranch
Whitewright, TX (North of Dallas)
Though we did not stay in the treehouse when we were there back in 2016, we did enjoy the ranch for two full days in a cabin with amenities and an outdoor shower. Best Day Ever Ranch is ideal for a romantic getaway because you’re all alone and secluded from the rest of the cabins. If ever you want to marry, check out this place for your wedding ceremony – it’s a fantastic place to say your vows in their upscale event center.
Since we’ve been, they have added a beautiful swimming pool, more cabins, and amenities. Paul, the owner, has done a grand job building his ranch – his long-time childhood dream. They may have other glamping treehouse rentals that I’m not aware of.
11. Geronimo Creek Retreat
Seguin (30 mins east of San Antonio)
Geronimo Creek Retreat, a unique creekside resort in Seguin, TX, features treehouses surrounding a spring-fed pond, teepees, and glamping cabins. You can feel as if you’re fully submerged in nature but with the comforts of modern amenities such as air conditioning, bathrooms, and WiFi in the treehouses.

12. HoneyTree Farm Treehomes & Hideaways
HoneyTree Farm has five treehouse options on 10 acres overlooking Palo Alto Creek. Oh, which one will you choose? Each one is totally different from the next one. It looks like a special place for romance to me. The Leaf Treehouse would be my option just because I could sit by the unique round window to read a magazine or ponder my plans as I gaze out the window.

Not too far from Downtown Fort Worth, only 12 or so minutes from the Cleburne State Park, you’ll be in a quiet place surrounded by nature.
