Sure, you could book a hotel (there’s nothing wrong with a little room service). But if you’re trying to make a weekend getaway more unique, try something a little different. We highly suggest booking one of these seven gorgeous Airbnbs. From upscale trailer to chic compound, you’ll have the place to yourself.
CONNECT WITH NATURE IN AUSTIN
Check in to this fancy farmstead that dares you to check out. This spot right off the Barton Creek Greenbelt is serious about being one with nature–as in, no AC. But there is an outdoor shower… swoon .
DOWNTOWN LOFT IN HOUSTON
All Dallasites head down to Houston at least once a year to attend a wedding, visit family or call on clients. Why get stuck in a hotel rut when you can call this lovely loft with a view your home for a couple of days?
RIVER WALK RETRO DIGS IN SAN ANTONIO
Oh so chic. This place might cost a pretty penny, but it sleeps 12 and could be perfect for a family reunion or for a bunch of friends coming to town for a wedding or sporting event. It’s walking distance from the Pearl Brewery and the River Walk. And did we mention there’s a pool?
MINIMALIST TRAVEL TRAILER IN MARFA
If you are looking for a no-frills, fantastic place to rest your head after a night of stargazing in this dreamy art town, look no farther than this zenned-out trailer. It sleeps three and has an outdoor lounge space and access to public bathrooms. Plus, it’s close to all the art, architecture and food that downtown has to offer.
QUAINT GUESTHOUSE IN FREDERICKSBURG
Farmhouse sink. Need we say more? But seriously, this adorably decorated guesthouse just steps off of Main Street is the perfect place to stay while exploring the wineries and fine cuisine of Fredericksburg. A queen bed and sleeper sofa makes it easy to sleep four people.
BEACHY-CHIC OASIS IN PORT ARANSAS
If you’re beaching it in Texas, it doesn’t get any better than the prestigious community of Cinnamon Shore. Not only are you just a five-minute walk from the beach, but you also have access to a gorgeous pool, fitness center and fishing pier. This home sleeps ten, so it’s the ideal place to host a girls’ weekend and split the hefty nightly fee.
