If you're looking for a unique experience for your next vacation, check out the Gruene Homestead Inn. Located in New Braunfels, Texas (which is about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio), the inn offers a variety of different lodgings - including The Silo, A one bedroom loft apartment built into a 1940s grain silo, this upscale space can accommodate up to two adults and two children.
The owners of the Gruene Homestead Inn purchased the 1940s grain silo from their neighbors in 2007 and proceeded to give it a personal work over. The interior was converted into a loft apartment that has a queen sized bedroom upstairs and a sofa bed in the living room area that folds out into a backup bed.
Not as funky as some of the European silo conversions we’ve seen, The Silo room at Gruene features a material palette of stone and wood, and the bathroom has a standup shower. There are two sinks and a host of other amenities, which go for $175 per night on quiet days and $210 on weekends and holidays. Outside, a gabled awning shelters a small porch, which is a perfect to watch the sun rise and fall.
