This was my first trip to Round Top, Texas and you better believe I’ll be back!
I love to travel, it’s mostly been to Disney, but I am always up for checking out new places. My friend Wendy from The Curated Farmhouse invited myself and a few friends to come stay with her in Round Top at the Junk Gypsy Wander Inn. Of course I jumped at the opportunity, but oh my word I was not prepared to be completely blown away during this trip!

Round Top, Texas is mostly known for its week long vintage shopping extravaganza held three times a year. Unfortunately we visited in the off season, but there were still plenty of vintage finds to be found. Round Top in and of itself is a cute quaint town, but the main reason we came was to stay at the Junk Gypsy Wander Inn.
Sisters Amie and Jolie Sikes had a dream and a passion that is now Junk Gypsy and Wander Inn.
We pulled up to the cutest store, Junk Gypsy, filled with amazingly curated home decor, fashion, and beauty products. I’m pretty sure we came back to the store at least three times during our stay often shopping until, literally, the cows came home.
I loved all the unique items and picked up a few things for myself and the girls. So many gorgeous and unique items to choose from.
Just behind the store, a road leads to three gorgeous houses that serve as lodging for traveling guests. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Gypsy Farmhouse, which according to the website is a 1952 Sears Kit House.
Just stepping foot into the house was a whole experience as we were pleasantly greeted with the Junky Gypsy signature home scent. They also have their signature scent included in the toiletries, the body butter is my personal favorite. There was so much to take in and there were lots of “ooohhhhsss” and “aaahhhhsss”.
The eclectic decor was a mix of vintage farmhouse, from it’s vintage Coca-Cola cooler turned kitchen cabinet, and a nod to the time of the Rat Pack. Speaking of the kitchen, which is fully stocked with all the cooking accessories you may need should you decide to cook your own meals, there’s a large kitchen table perfect for eating and chatting the night away.
The living room has a cozy fireplace , plenty of reading materials, comfortable seating, and a record player as well as a bunch of records to choose from. Between the kitchen, living room, and a seating area in between the two, there was plenty of space for us all to sprawl out and get comfortable.
The bedrooms were all decorated with a different theme and a mixture of new and vintage inspired decor. The beds were so comfortable that I had a hard time heading back home. A lot of the decor is featured in the store if there was something that you just couldn’t live without.
Whoever is lucky to stay in the master bedroom, has the opportunity to try out the gorgeous copper tub.
Outside there are rocking chairs, another table for outdoor dinning, and a place to have a little fire. The mornings were so peaceful out here watching the sun come up and breathing in the fresh country air.
Our first night there, Melissa from Local Roots Cafe brought us with the most gorgeous, and delicious, charcuterie board.
Melissa was also so gracious to bring us to tour her adorable cafe and send us off with the yummiest care package. She also does catering and offers a ton of other services so if you’re in the area, check her out.
As if this place wasn’t cute enough, to top it all off, every morning we were greeted with hot from the oven homemade biscuits and fixings. (If you can’t tell, food is one of my love languages.)
If you have a few more people in your party, there are two more houses on the property that may fit your needs.
Even though we didn’t stay in the Crown House or the Star House, we were fortunate to get an opportunity to tour those houses as well.
You may recognize the Star House because it’s been featured by a few major magazines and provided the back drop for a photo shoot for Miranda Lambert.
Unlike the Gypsy farmhouse which is meant rented as the whole house, the Crown House and Star House offer individually themed rentable rooms that have a shared common area. Each bedroom has its own smaller refrigerator perfect for holding personal items.
Outside there are porches and rocking chairs perfect for watching the sun set. In front of both houses, is a large fire pit where you can relax and if you want, make s’mores.
Whether you want to come vintage picking, or you need a getaway, add Round Top, Texas to your travel bucket list.
A couples getaway, girlfriends trip, bachelorette party… you name it, this would be the perfect place to relax, unwind, and reconnect. You better believe I’ll be back and hopefully will have the chance to stay here again.
