Although big cities don't always have the widest array of options when it comes to outdoor activities, a little road trip will introduce you to some of the most impressive places in Texas. If you drive a couple of hours into the center of the state, one interesting spot that you'll come across is Flophouze, a hotel near Austin entirely made out of shipping containers.
If you enjoy the outdoors and also want a unique place to stay, look no further.
In the middle of Round Top, Texas, away from the hustle and bustle of the major Texas cities, lies an open lot that contains a fleet of six shipping containers that act as tiny "houzes."
These homes have been transformed to be comfy, cozy abodes that embody the calmness of the outdoors.
They were able to accomplish this by using recyclable materials which makes the homes that much more charming.
Each room comes with its own bathroom, kitchen, and living room, and we bet that will help make you feel right at home.
Don't worry, we know pets are part of your home too so Flophouze is pet-friendly as well.
The hotel even offers community amenities such as fire pits so you can kick back and enjoy the outdoors.
The amenities that are offered include multiple sitting areas for you to enjoy a book, chat with your partner, or sip on some wine.
There's a shaded sitting area that is a little more secluded and one with a fire pit so you can toast some marshmallows too.
There's also hammocks, the perfect place to read, nap, or eat.
The pool is also a customer favorite and yes, it's also made out of a shipping container as well.
The reservation price starts at $175 and has the availability shown on their website.
This hotel is a nice escape from the city and since it's relatively small, you could even host a group party at this place.
Party or getaway, it's still a neat hotel.
Price Per Night: $175
Address Or Neighbourhood: 1132 W., Farm to Market Rd. 1291, Round Top, TX
