Outstanding Alternative Lodging
We are very outdoorsy camping types. This was like staying in a five star hotel. We did not go without and bragged to all of our friends on the amenities and comfort. In a way, I want to keep this a hidden secret just for us. Oh those beds...who knew that two queen beds and a sleeper sofa would fit inside a tipi...or is it tee pee? Mike, the manager of the property was very accommodating and went above and beyond the call of duty. You are not roughing it here...super nice bathrooms and sitting areas for grilling and chilling. Many couples walking by who live in Sequin stopped to ask us to see inside. They were very impressed and said they lived in Sequin and never knew they existed. We enjoyed the creek in Kayaks and hot tub. If you are looking for something new and exciting, stay here...weekdays very quiet except for the occasional quack from the solo duck that we made friends with. Think outside the box..or shall I say hotel and look into a Tipi stay. You won't regret it:-) We'll be back very soon.
We are mature ladies who travel together often. The cabin was perfect for us and we did fine with one bathroom. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The view from the deck was a real delight; ours was a bit sunny in the evening but we just moved downstairs. Just a delightful stay at Sweet Medicine. We have already made reservations for our next visit.
Perfect for comfortably enjoying the outdoors.
While we normally enjoy camping at this time of year, we wanted to enjoy the fall weather and the outdoors without the work and stress of camping. This property was perfect for that! The space was not only stylish and unique but very comfortable (memory foam mattresses!) and well-appointed. The kitchen area is small but good for preparing things you can't cook up on the grill. Great chiminea for a fire and grill for cooking out. The bathrooms were private and very clean. The property itself is likely more enjoyable in the early fall when you can still swim and kayak in the river, but it was nice for relaxing outdoors and for fishing. I highly recommend it and will definitely go back.
Awesome Tipi and Back to Nature Experience!!!
My friends and I went on a shopping trip at San Marcos over the weekend. We are from Houston. On Sunday we decided to drive to Seguin for some Tipi experience. As you drive to the location, there's no really visible signage to say that you have arrived the Geronimo Creek, but you just have to be on the lookout for the Tipi. We didnt have any problems to find parking as there's a dedicated parking just few steps away from the Tipi. We were given clear instruction on how to get to Tipi and also how to gain access. As we enter the Tipi, everything was clean and in order. The air conditioned was on and it was a pretty good temp, considering how hot it was outside!
We brought our own charcoal and did some BBQ. BBQ pit was provided by the owner, so that was great. At night, Bryant (the owner's brother in law) came to check on us and helped us adjust the light so our Tipi is more bright. Our only regret is that we stayed there just for 1 night!! IT SUCH AN AMAZING place!! great experience. each tipi gets their own bathroom.
love this place!!!! will for sure return!! and stay longer of course!"
Best Place Ever!!!
We stayed 3 nights at the Tipis. The Tipi was absolutely AMAZING!! The property and amenities were beyond our expectations. This was our first trip to new braunsfuls/ Seguin, and staying here just put the cherry on top! If we ever decided to make another trip here, this will be our only choice no doubt! Im missing our Tipi already. :-(
Peaceful & Relaxing!!
Our family is from Houston and we're always on the run, Geronimo creek provided us with the opportunity to relax and enjoy some much needed R & R in a completely family oriented and inviting atmosphere. Cabins are very comfortable and it's nice that kayaks, life vests, fishing poles, sports equipment, etc., are provided. Complete Serenity!
"Geronimo Creek was better than Expected!!
We booked Geronimo for a large group of friends and kids - the website looked awesome and we were really looking forward to it. It was even better than expected. The cabins were in excellent condition, very clean. THE BEDS! SO COMFY! The tipis were very roomy, super cool and dark as a cave for good sleeping. The patios between cabins were a perfect spot for hanging with our friends - the kids never got out of the river. Everything we wanted and more. We will be back next year, and the group will be even bigger. Great place for a family reunion or end of year school trip. We all highly recommend Geronimo Creek."
Camping But Better
Remember camping as a kid? This is like that, but without the hassle of a tent, plus everyone is less fragrant from having access to a shower! The cabins are a great way to spend some family time together complete with camp fire building and marshmallow roasting. Bring some food to grill and settle in for a great retreat. We'll be back for sure!

"Truly a Home Away from Home!"
My family and I searched many rental properties in the New Braunfels area before finally deciding on this property. At first we were a little apprehensive as to location and convenience to local attractions, but were quickly relieved to find that we were just a short drive from New Braunfels, Gruene, San Marcos, San Antonio, and the many river activities available in the area! The sense of seclusion and tranquility that Geronimo Creek Retreat provides has been such a blessing to our family! There are so many things to do here! There has never been a dull moment! We have fished, kayaked, played ping-pong in the common room, cooked out on the deck, sat around the campfire at night, and the kids love to play on the playground in the yard! The owners are the nicest people that you could ever meet and have been exceptionally accomodating to any needs that may have arisen during our stay! They have provided us with numerous recommendations for restaurants, attractions, and shopping in the area, to which we have not been disappointed! During our stay, we went to the River Walk in San Antonio, Sea World (several times), outlet malls in San Marcos, shopping in Gruene, Natural Bridge Wildlife Safari and Caverns, and so many other places that I could not even begin to list them all! The cabins are impressively built and meticulously furnished with top of the line furniture, beds, and appliances. The grounds are consistently well maintained as well as beautiful and peaceful. Overall we have been pleased beyond measure and have already recommended this property to all of our friends and family! We can't wait to come back!

We had a great time. The house was very clean and comfortable. Large Master bedroom and 2 queens in the loft. One important note is that to get to the loft room you need to climb a narrow winding staircase - important to keep that in mind. Clean and well stocked bathroom and kitchen. If you enjoy birds we were there in mid march and saw several varieties of birds and ducks. Great little creek for swimming and fishing.

The cabin was amazing - great construction and design. Very peaceful area also. You should remind people to bring binoculars for bird watching. It was so enjoyable sitting on the deck in the mornings and drinking coffee. The location is convenienient and central to many places: Gruene, New Braunfels, Shiner, San Marcos, and San Antonio. This was the best spring break we have ever had. We will definitely be coming back. I'm not sure that I want to give this good of a review because I don't want everyone finding out about this place! Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with us.
Awesome Girl's Getaway and Secluded Private Creek!
What a remarkable and relaxing place to stay! The listing pictures are exactly what you'll see when you arrive. When we came up the back road route, we were a little anxious, but soon discovered it was truly the perfect get-a-way we were looking for. Very clean. A group of six of us that have known one another since elementary school - and we've been friends for 40+ years (do the math!) stayed the weekend for a great girl's get-a-way! The owner was very kind and let us really enjoy all of the relaxing amenities on the property. Super large decks, nice tables, and plenty of room to enjoy views of the creek. Very close to Gruene/NewBraunfels area, too! Shared game room & hot tub!! :) Loved taking the kayak/canoes out for a paddle along the creek, and using the inner tubes to float around and cool down with a cold one! Relaxing picnic tables on the property, deck by the waterfront (and it's not a stretch of creek that has thousands of partying people floating down it -a very nice private swimming hole for sure!!) and, of course a rope swing that we "older" ladies opted not to try! What a great place for a family reunion or group. (I wouldn't highly recommend it for a secluded romantic get away, just because the house decks are connected if you don't rent both). But, really nice for a group of 4 - 12. Recommend making a day of it in Gruene. I'll definitely go back!
Great for a Getaway with Family and Friends
My extended family stayed at the Geronimo Creek Retreat in two of the cabins sharing an adjoining deck. What a lovely place to be for the weekend. The cabins, with their wall-to-wall front windows facing the creek, feel secluded and peaceful, but you're only about 20 minutes from the entertainments of New Braunfels. When at the cabins, we especially enjoyed the rope swing into the creek, the lovely decks, the hammocks for an afternoon nap, the fire pits where we roasted marshmallows at night and the comfortable beds and linens. There were many more amenities (clean hot tub, fully stocked game room, new flat screen televisions) that we didn't have time to utilize, but we hope to come back next summer to try them out.
Wonderful Family Getaway
So relaxing and beautiful! Everything and more of what we expected. Everything is new, clean, and very comfortable. Great location, we went to river and San Antonio during our stay! I am looking forward to going back!
