Cypress Valley Canopy Tour in Austin, Texas

Updated: Jan 4

Have you dreamed of staying the night in a treehouse? If so, this is the place for you. It is the ultimate weekend getaway with treehouses, a small lake, an enchanted pool, and ziplining. What more could a girl ask for?




Treehouse

There are 5 amazing treehouses you can select from during your stay. We selected the Jupiter treehouse, which is a solar powered, single bedroom treehouse perched in a cypress tree. This treehouse was the perfect romantic room with a queen bed that sleeps 2 people. If you are wondering..... YES it has air conditioning! The best part is, it has an amazing view and a deck outside, which is perfect for relaxing with your morning coffee or afternoon wine.

Please note: Willow and Juniper are nestled under an active part of the zipline canopy tour. You can/will hear people while they are ziplining past your treehouse.

"Check-in" is at 4:00 pm however we arrived at 1:00 pm and luckily the room was available and they allowed us to check-in early. This is my happy face. I was ready to get the party started.

The restrooms are shared rustic outdoor bathrooms that are a good 3 to 4 minute walk away.






Here is my video from the Jupiter to the restrooms.

The room is stocked with coffee, tea, and sugar.


Zipline

You can soar through the Hill Country Trees on a zipline that is perfect for beginners. The tour includes 5 ziplines and 2 sky bridges that lasts up to 2 hours. You must purchase zipline tickets in order to stay at treehouse, so if you have been wanting to zipeline, but are too afraid, then this is the perfect excuse to force yourself to do it. The only deal I could find is "Kids Fly Free" one child (10-17 yo) can zipline for free with every adult ticket purchased.


What’s a skybridge? Here's one. You can even see our treehouse below the skybridge.



Amenities

After ziplining you can enjoy all the amenities onsite.


My husband enjoyed the ziplining out over the water. They even have a rope swing and they allow you to jump off the top deck. Jackpot!

I enjoyed hanging out in the hammock watching my husband jump. It was RELAXING!

Then we headed out on the boat to explore the small lake. I seemed relaxed in the picture, but my husband was having a hard time rowing the boat. He kept splashing me with the water. Grrr..

After the lake, we went swimming in the most adorable enchanted swimming pool.


Here is a video of the campground.


Food

There is no room service, therefore you have to barbecue out on the grill or leave the facility to eat.


Blue Bonnet Café

Our favorite spots:

Breakfast- Blue Bonnet Café in Marble Falls (World Famous) This place is cash only and the lines are LONG. The breakfast is worth it.


We had to take home a world famous pie for my in-laws for babysitting our kids over the weekend. It was really yummy!


Rae's Rbar & Grill

Dinner- Rae's Rbar & Grill in Marble Falls. This place is amazing. You will not regret it.


Plus, the restaurant is located in this amazing shopping center.

This was the first vacation my husband and I had that included lots of relaxing. We usually go, go, go. However, camping forces you to slow down. You have no where to go, so you are forced to walk a little slower and enjoy the scenery. We left this vacation well rested. I really want to get out and camp or ..."Glamp" more often. It has to be good for the soul.
