Flophouze is the newest and most unique way to lodge in the antique mecca of Round Top, Texas, these days. Round Top is now home to a cool option in overnight stay as you road trip through the Hill Country on the hunt for those one-of-kind antique finds.

Located just minutes from downtown Round Top, you will find three beautifully decorated shipping containers waiting to welcome you with all the comforts of home. The idea was “born from pure wanderlust, an inherited obligation to recycle and a constant need to create,” shares its website. You can get an up-close and personal look inside the containers with the YouTube video below from FlopHouze Hotel.

Enjoy the beautiful and picturesque views surrounding you as you lounge on the hammock, or sit back and relax on the deck chairs by the firepit and watch the sunset on another perfect day among a view of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

This “Eco-Chic” container hotel can accommodate up to four guests with a full-size couch, queen bed, a cute kitchenette with sink, microwave, and mini fridge, along with an “efficient Hollywood bathroom.”

The upscale and elegantly decorated interiors are “cladded with sustainably harvested wood from our farm in upstate New York and reclaimed lumber from a distillery in Kentucky,” as their website shares. Recycling at its best as the countertops come from old bowling alley floors in Texas. These are just some of the spectacular recycling ideas featured throughout the space.

For rates and availability make sure to visit their website  www.flophouze.com, and schedule your stay as you make your way to Round Top, Texas, to celebrate its 50th Anniversary of bringing you the best in antique finds.
