The lodge comes with a treetop cottage and a deck overlooking the river. The massive treehouse and lodge sleep a total of 20 people with plenty of room. At the lodge, you'll find everything you need for a comfortable stay including a laundry room, full-size kitchen, shuffleboard table and hot tub. In the cottage, you'll find a comfortable sleeping area plus a marble wet bar, a jacuzzi and a sauna. The deck of the giant treehouse has a campfire table so you can make s'mores while you watch the sunset.
Of course, if you want to get away but still be able to Instagram all of the fun you're having, the lodge does include wifi. They also provide satellite TV so you don't have to worry about missing any of your favorite shows.
The river and treehouse are on private property so you'll never have to worry about sharing the views with strangers. Once you rent the place out, the treehouse, lodge, amenities and riverfront are all yours!
Unfortunately, the lodge doesn't allow pets so your furry best friend will have to stay home for this one.
Rates for the lodge start at $600 per night for up to 18 people during the fall, winter and spring and work their way up from there. Make sure to book reservations well in advance because the treehouse fills up fast.
Even though the place is secluded, there are plenty of activities to do around the lodge including biking, fishing and tubing.

The bridge, which hangs over Wurzbach Parkway, was put into place to connect the once divided Phil Hardberger Park and offer animals and people a safe way to cross the busy road.
The bridge will also be an amazing community hangout spot, as it connects a park that features multiple amenities such as a playground, dog park and basketball courts.
The Tobin bridge will also be connecting over 7 miles of nature trails, which will undoubtedly lead to a hike that is truly unlike any other in the state.
Of course, the opening day comes with multiple restrictions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including limited bathroom usage and social-distancing.

In addition to the incredible experience of simply walking up and down the path, you can also consider participating in numerous special holiday events that take place on the river.
One of these events is the "Caroling Boats," where you and your gang of friends can rent a boat and take it through the river while singing your favorite holiday tunes for all of your loyal fans.
The best part about the river walk is that not only is it open 24-hours a day, it's also completely FREE, although you might find it difficult to not stop and get some famous San Antonio tacos along the way.
