Where to Stay in Round Top — From Inns to Bed & Breakfasts to Something Truly Unique
9 Great Places That May Change Your View of Texas' Antiques Mecca
As Texas’ mecca for antique lovers, shopping aficionados and appreciators of beautiful country scenery, Round Top and the area’s surrounding communities make for a perfect weekend getaway. Whether you’re treasure hunting, touring wineries, or just relaxing, there are many unique places to stay in and around Round Top that are almost destinations to themselves.
These are the Round Top hotels, bed & breakfasts and unique lodging options that you need to know about:
Who knew that shipping containers could be so chic? Flophouze Shipping Container Hotel in Round Top apparently understood this all along and is now proving that some of the nicest stays can come in old renovated metal boxes.
Each of Flophouze’s six container homes are decorated differently, but they are all modern, Texas inspired and made with unique recycled materials (think bowling alley floor countertops). All container homes come fully equipped with a living area, small kitchen and a patio.
Flophouze’s property also has a Beachouze and Farmhouze available for booking, which sleep up to eight and 10 people respectively. Both homes are impeccably decorated with modern takes on their timeless themes.
It doesn’t get much more country chic than staying in a converted silo. Located in La Grange, Laughing Hen Silos’ converted metal circular structures are furnished with local thifted treasures and are full of whimsical charm.
The eclectic rooms are one-of-a-kind. This is a great place to stay if you’re looking for inspiration for your own antique shopping adventures.
For the only year-round glamping experience in the United States, there’s no need to travel far. It can be found in Round Top.
Lone Star Gamp Inn is perfect if you want to “camp” but hate mosquitos and sleeping outdoors, which we completely understand. The retro 1950s campground has converted vintage trailers, teepees and a common area decked in Coca-Cola memorabilia.
And best of all, it all happens under a covered air-conditioned roof. This is the kind of camping I can get behind.
This 20-acre ranch just outside of Round Top makes for a whimsical and colorful getaway. The owner and designer of Rancho Pillow, Sheila Youngblood, has curated a distinct and unique collection that includes Latin American folk art and architectural restorations.
You can camp or stay in one of Rancho Pillow’s teepees and hang out around a fire pit or wade around in the beautiful saltwater pool.
This oasis of an inn in the heart of Round Top offers old world country charm mixed with modern amenities. The historical property was once home to Charles Henry Schiege’s Cigar Factory and was restored in 1965 by preservationist Hazel Ledbetter.
Since then, the property has been run by innkeepers who value the inn’s storied history. With a vintage tin-roof farmhouse, a restored cottage and even the old Cigar Factory building, Round Top Inn is as historic as the city that is its namesake.
With three unique accommodation options, The Carmine Coop makes for an eclectic chic stay out in Carmine. The Farmhouse is a restored 1939 home that sits on two acres of land and boasts charming amenities, including a porch, porch swing and a clawfoot bathtub.
Carmine Coop’s second stay option, The Cottage, is a smaller but just as cute option. The Coop also has a huge porch, porch swing and a queen-size bed. The Airstream, the property’s third lodging option is a renovated 1973 Airstream Ambassador. It even comes with a hammock outside for the ultimate in country relaxation.
Within walking distance to Round Top’s downtown and overlooking a green pasture, The Frenchie’s posh accommodations offer a true mixture of country meets chic. The property houses a bright white farmhouse with a deep-set porch, cottage and art studio.
Attention to historical preservation is highly valued at The Frenchie. Even the oldest building on the property, a potting shed, has been converted into a luxurious guest lounge. All of The Frenchie’s lodging choices are decorated in modern and hip furnishings. Yet, they all give a nod to the rich history of the buildings.
A Round Top icon, The Vintage includes a shop of curated goods and decorated cottages. The four boutique cottages couldn’t be more centrally located.
All are within walking distance to many of the biggest vendors in Round Top’s antique shows. One can either book the cottages separately or reserve the whole property to be the home base for a big treasure hunting group.
Owned by the two sisters (Amie and Jolie Sikes) of Junk Gypsy, Wander Inn is a Round Top retreat that aims to deliver the ultimate Antique Show experience. The thoughtfully crafted inn highlights Round Top’s past through historical, thrifted and “junk” decor.
This is also a Round Top inn with some star power. Wander Inn is where the popular HGTV show Junk Gypsies is filmed.
