Flash forward a few years and we have a 5 year old and the twins are 2. As predicted, we still take vacations, but they need to be manageable and affordable for our family. We have also gotten close with other families who like adventure as much as we do and sometimes we are lucky enough to be invited along on their trips.
I ran through a quick mental checklist. It was air-conditioned. Some of the tipis slept six. There were BBQs, fire pits, a small kitchen with cooking equipment, plates, and a fridge. Plus, real bathrooms and a shower!
I texted back “We’re IN,” and we began the planning.
The Geronimo Creek Retreat is managed by Best In Texas Travel. They sent us emails and information on how to download their app ahead of time.
In addition to the tipis, you can also rent rooms in a house and there are two large cabins on the creek side. From the looks of it, all of the different areas were occupied while we were there, but I never got a feeling that it was crowded. In fact, we felt like we had the place to ourselves a lot of the time, but kids get up early!
