Round Top, Texas: Come for the vintage finds, stay at the amazing Wander Inn!

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.

It was cute seeing this group come in to feed at night.

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.

Large white carved statue of eagle perched on table with items you can purchase. Tin roof slanted ceiling above and a lot of various items for sale behind table.
So many amazing items to take home.

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.

Small white house with tin roof. Two windows flank a teal front door. Four white columns on the porch. Also on the porch are 5 red retro looking porch chairs.
Gypsy Farmhouse where we stayed, so cute.

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”.

Square tin ceiling in a room with white walls. Wood column on the left in front of a teal door. Next to teal door is a matching teal dresser with various vintage posters hanging above. Bottom left of picture is a fax leather round seating area. Hanging from the light above are metal feathers.
The tin ceiling and pops of color were perfect.

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.

Red vintage Coca-Cola cooler converted into a sink cabinet. Stainless steel counters on top of the cooler and farmhouse inspired faucet. To the left is the stainless gas stove with a floating stove hood. Under hood is a sign that reads "Truckers Welcome" Black window above the sink and a guitar shaped cutting board is in the lower right hand side of the window.
I loved all the thought that was put into the decor.

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.

Stone fireplace on the left side with a wood mantle. Above the mantle is a lighted bird sign. To the left of the fireplace is a dresser with a lamp on top and next to the lamp a record player. Next to the dresser is a wooden chair that is in front of a window. In front of the chair is a coffee table with a lot of books and on the floor under the table is a rug.
The mix of vintage and new made this eclectic Texas decor perfect.

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.

All white bedroom  with a wood carving hanging above the bed on the left. Next tot he bed is a small wood table with a lamp on top. The lamp has feathers hanging on the lamp shade. To the right of the lamp is a wood carved bull head and under is a sign that reads "we are the lovers and dreamers, the fun worshippers and risk takers, the thinkers, believers an change makers. In front of that is a metal hanging rack with a wire basket bottom.
My room for the week.

Whoever is lucky to stay in the master bedroom, has the opportunity to try out the gorgeous copper tub.

Two vintage wood barn doors flank the opening to a bathroom. There is a copper clawfoot tub between them. Behind the tub is a wood slat wall. The floor in the bathroom is tile with a star design. Next to the barn door on the right is a a cliff note.
This bedroom was amazing, but that tub… gorgeous!

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.

Concrete back porch on the back side of the house. Has a black door in the upper right corner. There is a white metal table and matching chairs that are vintage and have a scroll design. The chairs each have orange leather looking chair pads. Hanging above the table is an antique sign that reads "rocky rest antiques bed and breakfast."
Reminds me of my grandparents back yard, felt like home.

Our first night there, Melissa from Local Roots Cafe brought us with the most gorgeous, and delicious, charcuterie board.

Close up of table with wine glasses in the upper left. Next to the wine glasses are two bottles of wine.  In front of the glass and wine is a wood crate filled with various fruits, cheeses, and meats.
This was SOOOOO good!

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.

Local Roots cafe entrance shows a counter with a chalk board hanging on the front. Next to the chalkboard is an Indian statue. The walls are filled with various items that look like a collection. THere is a door in the back ground with red curtains and hanging above the door are letters that say "EAT".
If you head to Round Top, Texas you have to check out Local Roots Cafe.

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.)

Metal bucket with the Wander Inn logo. Inside bucket is a red bandana and biscuits. In front of the bucket are tiny jars of jam. All of this is on a wood table.
Every morning this bucket arrived at our door. So good!

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.

The Star House common area with a leather sofa, two leather chairs, coffee table and lots of books on the coffee table. Under the table and couches is a rug with varying shades of red and black. Hanging on the wall is a infamous Star Motel sign with bull skull hanging above.
Star house is perfect for people who want to rent a room and don’t mind sharing a common space.

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.

White bed with an antique couch at the food of the bed. Blanket at the foot of bed has gray and black Mexican inspired design. Hanging behind bed is a sign that reads "Country Delight". To the left of the bed is a fireplace with a bull skull hanging above. To the right of the bed is a large lamp on a small wood table. Hanging on the wall behind the lamp is a round mirro.
Each room has a name and theme, all are amazing.

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.

Large sign that reads "Gypsy" hangs above a wood coffee bar. Two stools in front with white furry seats. To the left of the coffee bar is a record player.
Each room in the Star and Crown House have their own private mini fridge and coffee bar.

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.

Bedroom with two beds with white comforters and at the foot of both beds is a Mexican inspired multicolor blanket. Table with lamp between both beds. Ceiling is wood planked with a metal star light feature hanging above.
