Amazing house and location! We're already talking about a return visit. P.S. loved the ladies at the check-in office!

Just wanted to tell you we had a wonderful week-end. We really enjoyed the house and the property. First time on the Frio and we loved the clear water. Hope to go again some time when our grown kids can join us.

Attached are 2 pics I thought you might like on your web or facebook. We couldn't believe Peyton caught that fish in 2 feet of water! The sunsets were gorgeous.
Blessings to you and your loved ones.
Joyce & Family San Antonio, TX – stayed at Frio Treetop 4th year in a row for Thanksgiving

LeAnn & Anthony, 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.

My family stayed at the Frio Treetop house 2 years ago, and fell in love with it! Our whole Gerhart clan was there for my uncle Harry's 70th birthday, over Labor Day weekend in 2011. I wondered if Treetop is available again this spring for another family birthday - my mother's 70th. I wanted to see if Mother's Day weekend is free - for 3 nights on May 9, 10 & 11th. I was bummed to see that Memorial Day weekend has already been booked, but I guess the early bird catches the worm! It would be a group of probably 12 or 13 people. I'm really looking forward to heading back to Texas! Leslie - New York, NY

The Frio Treetop was amazing, the kids and adults had a blast. You have thought of everything at the house! We had an amazing time and hope to be back next year!!! Thanks so much - Mougouris Family from Bellaire, TX - Stayed 5 nights Aug.7 thru 11, 2012

Hi LeAnn!! Our Wedding weekend at Frio Treetop was great! I can't tell you how special you made this weekend for us. Even before I got there, James arrived ahead and was texting me about the Fall decorations. I'm not sure how much you had done before we spoke, but it felt like you had decorated the deck just for us. It just couldn't have been any better! The weather was perfect Saturday. It was a tight squeeze to fit everyone on the deck for the Ceremony, but I think it worked out fine. The views and the leaves just starting to change was perfect for photos. I loved sitting out on the deck for the sunsets, watching the deer and even saw a couple turtles play in the river. The families loved the property, especially mine since we are all nature types. Several people enjoyed the rope swing and I got a few pictures of them going across. I have a handful of my photos up on Facebook. Two of the properties I think are very nice. I have many more but haven't had time yet to go through them.
I left a couple of our silk printed leaves for you (with our names/date) next to the guest book in case you wanted them for your records. There was definitely talk of coming back again. The time went so fast, it was a blur! Thank you again for allowing us to stay at such a special location!

LeAnn, I wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous stay at Treetop. 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. The only suggestion that we could make is for a shower by the hot tub, for although we tried to keep everyone clean going into the hot tub, with nine children and no shower, we were not very successful. 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. We would like to see if Treetop would be available 5 nights next year? Thank you for our wonderful stay. The Treetop is really special and we appreciate the care taken to make it special. We loved the fall decorations.

Labor Day Weekend 2011 – Best 70th Birthday!
An amazing weekend with family and friends. This was the perfect setting to spend quality time together and appreciate Harry’s 70th. Lots of fun rope swinging, conversations on the Treetop deck and great food. Everyone from 8 week old Eva to 70+ year olds enjoyed their time at the Treetop. We hope to have another family gathering here again someday. Thanks!

We absolutely LOVED Frio Treetop! The main part, of course, the TREETOP DECK.  As you know, we used up all the propane sitting out there no matter how cold it got.  It was just a neat place to sit around and enjoy each other's company.  And we would hang out in the Treetop Deck, hot or cold weather.  When we finally drained the fire pit’s propane, we came in and sat around the fireplace.  The kitchen was fantastic with everything we needed and we also used that wonderful grill one night.  My husband and I slept like babies in the guest house Cottage.  I'm so glad we found this place to rent.  It was a memorable Thanksgiving with unbelievable sunsets.

Thanks LeAnn and Anthony for providing a wonderful place for our family get together over the holidays. The “Frio Treetop” is definitely a place to go back to. Can't wait to have our next family gathering there! This place will be great for family reunions or parties or even a quiet weekend getaway. There was so much room with beautiful views and fabulous decks to sit out on. The deck out in the tree is AMAZING as well as the fire pit with chairs to sit and enjoy the beautiful star lit night sky. We had all the modern conveniences and a fully furnished kitchen with all the accessories to prepare our Christmas meal. You all have done an amazing job with the Treetop! Will definitely be staying there again soon and spread the word about the Treetop with my friends.

My husband and I enjoyed our trip to the Frio River over the holidays and we stayed at the Frio Treetop house with family. We loved everything about our accommodations. From the incredibly comfortable king sized bed, to the soothing sounds of the river below us at night, to the full sized kitchen and spacious bathroom, the Treetop is a perfect place to spend your vacation. We especially loved the deck area nestled high in the trees, which has plenty of space to entertain as well as provide sweeping views of the Frio River. We cannot wait to come back!

Hi LeAnn and Anthony, We had a great time at the Frio Treetop for New Year’s 2011. 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!  TJ and Carla from Cypress Texas – New Year’s 2011
