Myself, husband and teenage son went to New Braunfels and stayed in Treehouse #3 - Mourning Dove. Nice area right across the street from the Guadalupe River, but off the beaten path. Parking was easy and there are wagons in the parking area to haul all your stuff to your treehouse. Our treehouse had a master bedroom on the ground floor and a loft with 2 queen size beds. Spiral staircase was tight. Our teenager (15-years old) made it fine, but my husband and I had a more difficult time (both in our mid forties). There is a TV upstairs, but we were unable to get any programming. There is one bathroom that is downstairs.
The wifi also did not work. There was a laminated card on the coffee table, with passwords, but they didn't work. We weren't really there to sit around on our electronic devices, so it wasn't a huge deal - but if you say there is wifi, I believe it should work.
Nice kitchen. Comes with plates, pots and pans and silverware. We always travel with our own pots and pans, because I prefer stainless steel to the non-stick.
A couple of issues: The back door, which can be accessed via a patio - the door hinges are on the OUTSIDE. So technically, if someone wanted to - they could remove the door from the hinges and get IN to the treehouse while occupied. SCARY. Also - the blinds are installed so that the slider to open and close the blinds in the door - on the outside (see pictures). So anyone can walk up to the patio door, and open the blinds and look in - at anytime of the day or night. CREEPY.
But those somewhat disturbing things aside - I like this location much better than the one in Seguin (I have been to both) and I love the treehouse idea.
