Geronimo Creek Retreat at night

Geronimo Creek Retreat Glamping

If you are searching for a glamping spot near San Antonio or Austin, Texas, Geronimo Creek Retreat is a great option! It would be perfect for a girls weekend, couple’s getaway, family vacation or any other type of trip. Best of all, all of their accommodations are air conditioned. A true must in Texas!

Getaway Cabins

In May 2019, I took advantage of a work trip and turned it into a scouting trip for an upcoming bachelorette weekend I was planning. Our party was going to be made up of four to five ladies, which would fit perfectly in a Getaway Cabin!

The maximum capacity of the Getaway Cabins are listed at 5 people. They each have two queen beds, a full-sized day bed. They also came with a few throws, extra linens and towels, but the real treat of the cabin was the deck! The open air cooking space and elevated viewing area were perfect for coffee and would have been great to eat on. Wouldn’t you know it, I somehow didn’t get a photo of it!

The deck’s kitchenette is also where you wash you hands after using the cabin’s “half bath”.

Not interested in eating out on the deck? The cabin also has a small table inside. They also provide silverware and plate and cups! You can find all that and more in the cabin below the TV.

Coffee machine, TV with cable, a microwave, cooktop, cookware and mini-fridge, what else do you need? Well if you stayed in cabin #2 after I did and they didn’t clean out the mini-fridge, you also would have gotten a cupcake!

Getaway Cabins also have a charcoal BBQ grill, picnic table, nice outdoor wicker furniture, hammock and fire pit available. In addition to the half bath that comes attached to each cabin, there are 7 full bathrooms located close by.

The entrances to the cabin had keypads that we received the code for through the property’s app. It was easy to unlock and felt secure to lock and leave our things behind. The app also had the wifi information

The Half Bath

To top off this glamping stay, each visit to the toilet was also an adventure! I’m not kidding. After we booked, I was emailed information on how to download the property’s app. Inside the app were instructions on how to use the glamping cabin’s incineration toilet! What?!

Travel Tip #28: Don’t forget the bowl liner.

Don’t let this turn you off from renting a cabin at Geronimo Creek Retreat though. They have other standard toilets you can use if you’d prefer! But, if you are up for an adventure, go for it! I explain how to use the incineration toilet here, there’s also a quick video overview.

As I always like to share the costs for my budget conscious readers! Our cabin on a weeknight in May (2019) was $78 per night and the total with taxes was $132.21. Most of the weekends during the year require a two night stay to book, except for during the summer season when you have to book three nights on the weekend.

Geronimo Creek Retreat Teepee

The teepees at Geronimo Creek look really cool, don’t let this angle turn you off. The pond hopefully doesn’t always look like that, but here is teepee #0. The teepees are also air conditioned and sleep four to six people. You can read more about the teepees here.

Amenities of Geronimo Creek Retreat

The common area pictured above also has a TV, foosball and ping pong. There were a lot of people enjoying the hot tub when we stayed, and communal hot tubs aren’t really my thing. Geronimo Creek also has kayaks paddle boards and a rope swing so you can enjoy the river!

The grounds also have a volleyball court, cornhole near the teepes, a basketball court and horseshoe pits!

    I have yet to do glamping, and this makes me so excited to try it. I’m not an outdoorsy person, but with so many creature comforts, I’d be really into this. This honestly looks like the perfect place to do a girls trip!

    This place looks really cool! It might be the option that I am looking for since I am done with the camping years and might want to step up to glamping. I love the teepees too. Are they just as nice inside?
