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.
