Located on 35 acres just 6 miles from Round Top Square, this converted pole barn can host up to 6 people in air-conditioned comfort, or serve as a lodge for group tent camping. The 6 "bedables" were custom-designed to hold a comfy standard twin mattress. Want tables instead? The headboard holds the mattress in place and with a turn, you now have six sturdy tables for crafting and gathering. The space has a sitting area, kitchenette (microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker) and a full bathroom. The sliding doors on the back open to a lovely grove that is perfect for group tent camping. If more privacy is desired, campers may prefer a more remote spot near the creek that runs through this 35 acre property. Miniature horses and 3 donkeys reside permanently on the property. Cattle is present on a rotating basis, but is kept distant from the lodge. Deer, coyotes, and other critters have been spotted in the pastures and near the creek. The barn is adjacent to a stocked fishing pond. There are 2 cottages and a main house which operate as The Cottages on Mill Creek bed and breakfast. The barn is across the cattle guard, but within sight of these buildings from the barn front entrance, but the back camping area is more secluded.

Beautiful barn and extremely welcoming! I loved my stay and would definitely recommend staying. The breakfast was delicious and dietary restrictions were accommodated. The happy vibe from this place just rubs onto you as soon as you set foot. There’s a lake with plenty of fish and the animals are adorable. Cannot recommend a night here enough!

Our group of 14 came to celebrate my husbands birthday, some of us camped and some slept in the barn. It was perfect for our group of campers/non-campers! So many little, thoughtful touches (like individual make-up remover towels, which several of us women ended up needing!). It was a pretty cold night but the barn was a nice temperature with the heaters Sue provided us. We loved spending time all the animals and exploring the property. Wish we could have stayed longer!

The Tin Barn Lodge was much more comfortable and a lot larger than we expected. We had such a great time walking the trails, fishing, feeding horses and donkeys. swinging, roasting s’mores and playing ball in the field. Sue was a wonderful host! We are so thankful for this experience and we hope to come back. Oh, be sure to wear closed toed shoes! The adorable animals roam freely.

Where to begin?! My group of 10 ladies absolutely LOVED Sue's barn. Everywhere we turned there were cool, quirky and thoughtful details. We had wonderful bedding, towels, and the whole place felt so clean. We flipped some of the beds over to make a long kitchen table and were so grateful for the thoughtful design of the whole place. There was a wonderful shower and kitchen area in the barn that we all utilized! The best part (of course) was the wonderful pond and pasture that is behind the barn. We spend HOURS playing with, petting, hugging and feeding the mini-horses and donkeys, as well as swinging and see-sawing. 100% recommend Sue's place. We had AC, options for heat if we needed it, and Sue was always a text away and was really good about checking up on us. We had lunch at Feed & Firewater in Round Top and it was DELICIOUS, and we had a great cappuccino at Espressions Coffee & Art. Round Top is a tiny town, but it's so full of character and charm, and we were only a 10 minute drive from the downtown area!
