How to get there

Located in Glen Rose is one of the most beautiful tree house rentals in Texas. It’s called The Hive. It’s 1 hour and 30 minutes from Dallas and almost 3 hours from Austin.

Parking at Skybox cabins

SkyBox cabins provide on-site parking for their accommodation. You can enter the property only if you are a guest of Skybox cabins. The property is gated and only guests will have entrance codes. The same applies to the Hive treehouse.

Stone walkway and wrap-around deck

There is a small walking distance from the parking to the treehouse cabin. 

The journey begins with a walk on a hand-crafted stone walkway that the owners built. A couple of steps down and you come across the wrap-around deck. It extends from the stone walkway to the front side of The Hive. That is the moment you have a first glance at the magnificent A-frame treehouse cabin. The access to the tree house is from the back. You kinda build up expectations when you approach it. When you get closer to the deck you’ll notice there is an entrance door on the right. A couple of steps more and there is the spacious deck in front of the tree house.

The Deck

The deck is where most of the outside fun and enjoyment is. Nice space, sitting for four people and a magic view. In the right corner, in the end, a beautiful hammock is integrated with the deck. A cut-out in the deck for a hammock is the most brilliant idea i have seen. An awesome place to relax and perfect for any part of the day. The deck wraps around some trees making a perfect harmony of nature and architecture. A lot of amazing views and lovely sunsets to enjoy. Everything you need from this majestic Texas treehouse.

The bathroom design is a genius mix of functionality and small space footprint. What they did was unique: they split the toilet and bathroom apart. Next to the kitchen, on the far left, there is the tiny toilet section with a window and its own door. A cross of it is the bathroom. Small but practical sink and vanity, hexagonal mirror, some bath towels, and lovely tiled shower on the right. The idea was out of the box and the result was phenomenal.
