Burnet Castle VRBO

October 03, 2022

What's the most famous castle in Texas?

When we think about castles, we picture elusive buildings on European mountaintops that might as well be figments of our imagination. We certainly don’t even entertain the possibility that there could be one hiding in our own state – but that’s exactly true here in Texas. Falkenstein Castle is located in Burnet and it truly is one of the most magnificent man-made hidden gems in the state – perhaps even the best castle in Texas! Falkenstein Castle was built in 1996 by a couple inspired by their recent trip to Germany. It's now one of the most unique castles in Texas and a popular wedding venue. Can you even imagine a more romantic place to tie the knot?

What are some other castle-like places to spend the night in Texas?

The Burnet Castle VRBO is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is truly bucket-list-worthy, but it admittedly comes with a bucket-list-level price tag. If you're on more of a "commoner" kind of budget (us, too!), there are some amazing VRBO rentals in Texas that will have you sleeping like a king or queen. This Lighthouse VRBO is one of them. Located in Johnson City, The Lighthouse at Lighthouse Hill Ranch is a 3,500-square-foot VRBO rental that sleeps up to 15 guests and features a fourth-floor observatory and secret room. The sweeping Hill Country views are just icing on the cake! The rental is situated on a sprawling, 2,000-acre ranch complete with natural springs, fishing ponds, a seasonal waterfall, miles of multi-use trails, and a crystal-clear creek for swimming and tubing. It's like being in your own royal tower, except, you know, you weren't banished there by an evil witch a la Rapunzel.
