When you head northwest of San Antonio on Interstate 10, Boerne, TX meets you as the gateway into the Texas Hill Country. The quaint German town features the Hill Country Mile, a historic strip of walkable boutique shops and restaurants, the Cibolo Creek with walkable trails teaming with ducks and geese, two amazing caves, a well-kept lake in the hills, and more.

And if you’re looking for a unique way to enjoy the town, we’ve found one of the more interesting vacation rentals we’ve seen, perfect for individuals, couples, and small families alike – The Little Red Barn in Town (averaging only $77 a night!).

Now, the Little Red Barn won’t find you sleeping on hay bales or snuggling up next to livestock. On the outside, it looks like a newly painted barn. But on the inside, it looks like a brand new open-concept studio apartment.

This guest house is 800 square feet, and features on bedroom and one full bath. There’s also a second queen size air mattress available for the kids.

There’s even a chicken coop with fresh eggs to add to the farm feel!

As for location, it’s located on a quiet dead end street, and is near one of the walking trails that goes through town… and only a mile off of Main Street. So removed enough to be away from the bustle, but close enough to easily access shopping and dining. You can also easily follow the walking trail north just a little ways to a new walking bridge that takes you right into the backyard of the library, which has a really nice yard and amphitheater out back, along with a few neat statues.

It’s also close to Mary’s Tacos, which offer the best breakfast tacos you’ll find anywhere… we can vouch for this because we’ve had them a million times!

At only around $77 a night, staying in this cute country barn is a no-brainer!
