9. Studio apartment in a historic home in Beaumont (from USD 75)

This rental is a studio apartment above the main house’s garage, and both buildings date back to 1926. You’ll find that the rental retains its historic charm, especially with its original hardwood floors kept intact. It is, however, beautifully updated - the walls are painted in fresh white and pastel colors and the furnishings are modern and minimal. Experience tiny living for three as the studio features one bed and a fold-out loveseat, a full kitchen with a small dining table, and a roomy bath. Step out onto the private deck that overlooks the pool. Check out two museum homes and an array of popular eateries just a walking distance away. When staying in, you can go for a swim in the saltwater pool that guests are welcome to access at any time.

We had fun jumping off the (newly built) pier, attempting to fish, roasting marshmallows (the hosts provided!) over the pit, and enjoying the peace and quiet. We’d love to come back for a longer stay.” – Abby (guest review)

Leave everything behind at this waterfront paradise on Lake Tyler, Texas. With no wireless internet or television, this is truly a place to unplug and enjoy each other’s company in the great outdoors. Wildlife abounds here as well – guests have seen deer, owls, alligator gars, and turtles.

Spend the day fishing and the nights making s’mores over a campfire under the stars. Guests are welcome to bring kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, or anything else to have fun on the water all weekend. Tyler is only a 12-minute drive if anyone needs to get back to town for eating or shopping.
