Why not kick your next vacation up a notch? Did you know that you can spend a rather interesting night in a treehouse, yurt or “glamorous” tent? If you don’t believe us, have a look for yourself! Here are the 15 most unique hotels in the Lone Star State. 

1. Green Acres, Elgin, TX

Quite adorable and charming, this unique accommodation boasts that solo travelers, families and creatives really enjoy their time here. Choose from a beautifully decorated Moroccan-themed yurt or tiny home to spend the night in.

2. Cypress Valley Canopy Tours, Spicewood, TX

Here, you can not only sleep at the tops of the Cypress trees overlooking the Texas Hill Country in a cozy little yurt, but you can also book yourself a breathtaking zip-line adventure during the day. 

3. Geronimo Creek Retreat, New Braunfels, TX

Okay, seriously this is what you call Texas luxury! It’s rustic but it has everything you need and more. Stay in a huge cabin with windows overlooking the calm Guadalupe River, a homestead style house or our favorite, decked out tipis. 

4. Country Woods Inn, Glen Rose, TX

This is a great spot for retreats, weddings and of course any travelers looking for a truly unique experience! Stay the night in a railroad car, vintage airstream and one of their truly Texas, rustic homes.

5. The Antlers, Kingsland, TX

Another truly Texan rustic lodging is found here at The Antlers. You can choose to stay in their traditional hotel, homes or the best a real train caboose! Have your pick. 

6. Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, Glen Rose, TX

Get ready for a trip to your Texan safari! Yep, you heard us right. Giraffes? Zebras? We’re still in Texas right? It's not every day that you get to spend the night in a wildlife center, but at Fossil Rim you can spend the night in the Lodge or Foothills Safari Camp Cabins. The Lodge is described as "rustic luxury," with a “cathedral style living room” and a beautiful stone fireplace. The Foothills Safari Cabins offer views of the watering hole, where a variety of animals come to cool off.

7. El Cosmico, Marfa, TX

Spend the night underneath the blanket of stars on this unique campground of 21 tents, teepees, yurts and vintage trailers. This is a special place in the high plains of Texas.

8. Savannahs Meadow, Celeste, TX

Here, your treehouse not only provides spectacular views of Texas’ great outdoors, but it also is nestled in the lush leafy trees that make you feel like you’re living in a fairytale land.

9. Rio Frio Lodging, Rio Frio, TX

This is one of our favorites. The cabins overlook the Frio River and can be quite the peaceful spot for you and the family. This is where nature and adventurers come to meet—and they really like each other!

10. River Road Treehouses, New Braunfels, TX

If you want to give yourself a chance to experience the great outdoors, but you’re not quite up for the tasks of camping, this is the place to be. You’ll feel totally spoiled with their well-appointed treehouses that have windows all around to open you up to what Texas nature has to offer.

11. Canyon of the Eagles Resort, Burnet, TX

They’ve got camp sites here, but we’re talking about their resort style accommodations. Come here to unplug. Literally, as there are no TVs or alarm clocks to disrupt a peaceful stay here. 

12. Mountain View Lodge, Wimberley, TX

Definitely book a stay here to take in spectacular views of the “mountains” of the Texas Hill Country. You’ll have a rustic traditional hotel room with views that will take your breath away.  

13. Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, TX

Feel fancy in these Art Deco-designed hotel rooms while you enjoy the hotel’s very own brewed beer and tasty bites of the restaurant. What else more could one want or need in an exceptional night’s stay?

14. Heywood Hotel, Austin, TX

This is the epitome of what is now known as today’s Austin. Funky, chic and modern. Stay in the heart of Austin’s happening scene with free bikes and coffee to complete your stay.
