With so much to do and see in this area, it’s no wonder why Geronimo Creek Retreat has earned its spot as one of Central Texas’ top vacation spots.

We recently stayed at Geronimo Creek Retreat (not to be confused with Son’s Geronimo next door) and we’ve got to say, it was one of the best stays we’ve had in a while. Here are our thoughts on this exclusive glamping resort and we’ve even included Geronimo Creek Retreat photos so you can see what you’re getting into.

Where is Geronimo Creek Retreat?

If you’re ever in south Texas and looking for a retreat, the Geronimo Creek Retreat is the perfect place to go. Located near just north of Seguin and southeast of New Braunfels, the Geronimo Creek Retreat is super easy to find.

Take Texas Highway 123 to Laubach Rd and head east around 1.5 miles, and you’re there. Geronimo Creek Retreat has a big sign on the left so you know when you’re there. Again, this is not to be confused with Sons Geronimo which will be on your right. It’s just across the street (although when we saw it Son’s river ranch looks like a great place to stay, but we’ll save that for another time).

Geronimo Creek Retreat features the best accommodations!

When you first arrive at the Geronimo Creek Retreat your jaw will drop at the lodging. They have some of the most unique and glamorous pads we’ve seen!

Everything from the Getaway Cabin to the Sweet Medicine Treehouse with it’s spiral staircase, you’ll never want to leave the property. Their brand new birdhouse cabins are absolutely delightful!

Homestead Haus

The Homestead Haus is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house (cabin) that comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests.

It features a full kitchen (with a coffee pot, refrigerator, etc), 2 full baths, a living room, a dining room, WiFi, and smart TVs.

Outdoor amenities such as a fire pit, BBQ pit, hammock, picnic table, and seating are located behind the house by the stocked fishing pond.

Additionally, if you’re bringing the family you’ll enjoy the extra beds. The bedrooms are comprised of a master bedroom with a king bed and private bath, another bedroom bunk beds (full bed on bottom & twin on top), and another bedroom with a queen bed.

Getaway Cabins

The Getaway Cabins at the Geronimo Creek Retreat provide comfortable accommodation for up to 5 guests, with two queen beds & one twin daybed. We stayed in one of these cabins during our stay and absolutely loved it.

They all come fully furnished and temperature controlled, as well as a kitchenette with a microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee pot, electric cooktop, eating and cooking utensils, pots and pans, dinette table, WiFi, and a smart TV.

While each getaway cabin lacks a private bathroom, they do have detached bathrooms that have plenty of privacy.


Teepees at Geronimo Creek

The teepees are a unique and magical experience at the Geronimo Creek Retreat.

Each provides comfortable accommodation for up to 6 guests, with all the amenities included. Some of the tipis have three queen-sized beds, while others have two queens and a sleeper sofa.

Fully furnished and temperature controlled, they come equipped with a fully-loaded kitchenette with everything from the coffee maker to a full-size refrigerator, so you don’t have to bring much of anything of your own.

Also, just like the Getaway Cabin, they don’t have private bathrooms, but they do have detached ones that give you privacy.


For those guests that want an exceptional glamping experience at the Geronimo Creek Retreat, you’ll want to stay in their Creekside Treehouses. They have fun names like Sweet Medicine, Laughing Water, Prairie Flower, and Singing Cloud.

While these are more of a cross between a treehouse and a cabin, you’re going to feel like you’re in a fairytale regardless.

Each treehouse cabin provides comfortable accommodation for up to 8 guests, with a full kitchen, full private bathroom, living room, dining room, WiFi, smart TVs, and a Large Deck. They also come equipped with their own fire pits, BBQ fire pit, hammock, picnic table, and seating down below.

Geronimo Creek is crystal clear water with various depths so everyone can have a good time.

The Geronimo Creek Retreat provides guests with complimentary kayaks, paddle boards, and rope swings, so they can enjoy outdoor activities or relax in the comfort of the retreat.

It’s also surrounded by lush greenery, making it the perfect place to escape to for some peace and quiet while taking in nature.
