10 Unique Places to Stay in Texas

I love perusing AirBnB. There are so many unique and fun ideas for places to stay in. In just one evening, we found TiPis, Earth Domes, Cabooses, and Castles all in Texas! Not to mention the tiny homes, treehouses, silos, and house boats…..all in Texas!

So I thought it would be fun to show you some of these unique homes in Texas that you can rent out on AirBnB. I mean, wouldn’t staying in a treehouse overlooking the Frio River be fun? How about a Dome where you can literally sleep under the stars? Or maybe you have a little Train lover who might like to sleep in a Freight Car?

Take a look at thee fun & unique places you can stay in Texas!

From the Owner:
The Off Grid Dome shelter is accepting rental guests to share the off-grid experience, and to also help fund this project and future projects . The dome is a very remote and unique space in the desert near Big Bend National Park.  The dome rests in an isolated but easily accessible off-grid setting in one of the few remaining territories under a dark sky ordinance, which offers unmatched views of the night sky, and a completely unobstructed view of a horizon that delivers truly majestic sunrises and sunsets. Though the dome is isolated, the entrance to Big Bend National Park is just a 25 minute drive and the historic Terlingua Ghost town about the same.
