Hello! Each Wednesday I share some of the photos that stopped me in my tracks while I was scrolling Instagram the previous week. This week, I thought I’d share five photos of places I found on Instagram that I’d love to visit! (Maybe some of you live near them and have visited them and I can live vicariously through you in the comment section?) Here are the feeds I found them in:
1. @TheVintageRoundtop – Round Top, Texas:
Their website says:
From urbanites looking to escape the city, to girlfriend getaways, group or community retreats, a romantic escape for couples, or a connective family vacation, The Vintage Round Top gives you the opportunity to travel to a setting of vintage elegance that brings you back to the core of what matters.
Renovated in 2011 by Smoot and Paige Hull, the home sits on a prime piece of pastoral property in Round Top, Texas — home of renowned antiquing shopping and stunning countryside. The 2,700 square foot home was designed with sustainability in mind. It was comprised of reclaimed building materials and unique vintage finds creatively re-purposed into furniture, lighting and décor.
The home rental sleeps up to 6 with a master bedroom (king bed) and full bath downstairs, a private sleeping loft (queen bed and two twins) with a half bath upstairs, and an additional full bath downstairs. It also offers a spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a large dining room with seating for 8-10, a full size washer/dryer, cozy bed/bath linens, RVT bath amenities, central AC/heat, WIFI, and satellite TV. It is located only one mile from Round Top Square and a quarter mile from Festival Hill.
By combining modern, clean lines with reclaimed vintage touches, the “Modern Vintage” style was defined. All usable materials and fixtures taken out of the original home were donated to Habitat for Humanity. A percentage of all rentals is also donated to this special charity.
I’ve always wanted to go to the Round Top Antiques Fair. Have you ever been? If not, let’s go and rent this place together sometime! 😀
2. @LynneKnowlton‘s treehouse – 2 hours northwest of Toronto, Ontario, Canada…near a sleepy little town called Durham:
If you haven’t seen the interior photos of Lynne’s treehouse, laTREEN, and Airstream- you *must* click through that link. I just discovered them today, and I *really* struggled to narrow this down to one! She has created such a cool little getaway and based on her Instagram captions, I would really love to meet her in person someday!
3. @UniqueHomeStays – Cornwall, United Kingdom:
You’re welcome. 😉
4. @FrenchLarkspur – Beuvron-en-Auge, France:
Her caption didn’t mention where she was staying, but with storefronts like that, I’m sure there are amazing accommodations nearby too! Oh yes, here’s one for $105/night: Demeure Normande de Caractère…
5. @The_Barn_Loft – Fayetteville, West Virginia:
