We enjoyed hanging out in the Treetop Deck with the family and staying warm and singing songs around the table fire pit. The river down below is beautiful and the waterfall sounds relaxing. The views and sunsets are incredible. We even rode our bicycles right from the house. The location is excellent for cyclists. There was plenty of room in the house for everyone to gather and play games and enjoy family time. We cooked BBQ on the grill and had several cooks in the kitchen preparing each meal. This house is great for a family reunion. We look forward to coming back in the summer – and swimming in the Frio!

All three families were very impressed with the cleanliness of the place and how well equipped it was. There was a running joke to try to find something that was not available. There was even a funnel when we needed it. As all of the families loved to cook, all the pots, pans and dishes made it easy and enjoyable.

The house, decks, rope swing and all the facilities were in great shape. As my family has made it a tradition to spend the Thanksgiving week in Leakey on the Frio, we would love to reserve the Treetop again for next year. The Treetop is really special and we appreciate the care taken to make it special. We loved the fall decorations.

We wanted to thank you again for a great weekend and letting us enjoy your Frio Treetop property. All of us had a great time and absolutely loved the home, cottage, and all the amenities. You have thought of everything a family would need to enjoy their stay. We are looking at making this an annual trip now! 🙂 Thanks again and look forward to next time.
