The Bloomhouse by Lodgewell, Austin
$749 per night
Described as a "giant seashell unicorn," the Bloomhouse is a twisty, turny abode that is part of Austin's cultural history. The secluded abode was built in by two UT architecture students in the '70s, but fell into disrepair until it was bought in 2017 and restored to its former glory. If the unique exterior and gorgeous natural vistas aren't enough to convince you to visit, maybe the whimsical seashell-like interior will.
