Description of the Smithville vacation cabin rental
The Treehouse on the Colorado river is a cozy cabin located on 6 acres of private property. This Central Texas Hide-away offers you a secluded and peaceful place to enjoy the sounds and sites of nature.

Nestled among the trees, this hide-away is just 3 miles from downtown Smithville, 12 miles from Bastrop and 43 miles from Austin. But you'll think you've traveled hundreds of miles to find this serene setting.
Relaxing on the upstairs deck, you'll enjoy the sites of the bountiful species of birds, the colors of beautiful butterflies and the sounds of nature.

If you're more in the mood for a little exercise you can take a short hike to the creek and dip your toes in the spring-fed waters. You may decide to take your lawn chair with you and sink your feet in the water while gazing at the trees that canopy above you. Occasionally a fish may find it's way to your resting place or a bird might land to drink from the cool water. Just remember you're in their territory! You will be completely surrounded by nature at it's best.

The Colorado River is just a short walk should you decide to continue on your journey. If you enjoy canoeing or kayaking, the creek will lead you directly to the Colorado River where you can paddle downstream. Along the river you will find natural vegetation that includes willow, cottonwood and mesquite trees. A public boat ramp, where you can end your trip on the creek, is located at the VFW which is not too far downstream. Call us about local companies that can supply canoe/kayak equipment.

The Treehouse is equipped with everything you'll need to make your trip enjoyable and relaxing. All your linens are provided, all cooking utensils, appliances, bar-b-que grill, picnic table, cable TV, stereo, VCR and DVD players, a video library, and sleeping accommodations for as many as 10.

Looking for a romantic get-away for you and a special someone, the stone fireplace in the main room will provide that added touch for a very enchanting evening. We even provide your firewood. You'll be sharing your space with only those you choose as The Treehouse is a single-family unit. The cabin also has central air and heat to maximize your indoor comfort.

Additional space beneath The Treehouse will add to the hospitality of the cabin. The covered slab also has outdoor speakers from the stereo (as does the deck upstairs), it is equipped with electrical outlets and an outdoor shower that has hot and cold running water. Children find this a great place to play and adults a great place to gather and cook on the outside grill.

Bring your bikes as you may want to venture out on the country road and take in a closer look at the beautiful countryside. There is Rocky Hill Bicycle Ranch close-by for some really fun bike riding.

Check out the abundant bird population in the area. We have Bald Eagle families from October through May who hunt on the River...Quite an impressive site!

Well-behaved canine guests are always welcome. The love to romp in the leaves, chase the birds and squirrels and splash in the water. We even have an outdoor shower to clean them off when they get a little too muddy. The upstairs deck is fenced and gated, so the canine guests can stay outside without their owners worrying about them running off (this area works well for small kids!)

The Treehouse is quaint, charming and available for you and your family. The Treehouse has one bedroom, one bath with large glass enclosed marble walk-in shower, kitchen, dining room and living room. It comfortably sleeps up to 10 people.
