Minimalism is making a comeback, if it ever left. Located in Round Top, Texas, the Flophouze Hotel encapsulates the notion that less is more, with their Shipping Container Hotel.
Don’t be mistaken, this shipping container hotel is far from roughing it. Though it doesn’t dazzle with its dimensions, these shipping container habitations are outfitted with beautiful interiors, crafted from self-harvested and reclaimed lumber, and decorated with vintage artifacts rugs and art pieces. Surrounded by a sumptuous pastoral landscape, and with Fayette Lake just around the bend, you’ll have more than you need.
A Hammock, firepit, and chair set provide the creature comforts of a simpler existence. Quintessentially Texan, upon check-in you’ll be greeted by ice-cold bottles of Topochico sparkling water and Mexican Coke. Ecological and economical, a stay in these Round Top mini-manors runs just $175 a night – and, if you fall in love with your temporary home, you can buy one of your own, and – of course – they’ll ship it to you.
