7 Unique Family Accommodations Around the World

We’ve stayed in some pretty unusual places with our family over the years. Our favorites? The earthship in Taos, New Mexico, the converted medieval bakery in France’s Loire Valley, the creepy castle in Germany, and a working farm in Costa Rica.

Here are some other super cool accommodations for the adventurous family. Can you tell I’ve got a bad case of wanderlust?

1.     Lighthouse on a deserted island in Sv. Ivan, Croatia

If you’ve had Robinson Crusoe fantasies, this might just be the place for you. Eat what you catch, enjoy the private beach, and be on the lookout for pirates. It’s a 45 minute boat ride to shore.

2.     Restored Ruins of a 15th Century Fort-Palace in India

This hotel has it all: luxury rooms, awesome pool, ziplining, and history in every stone.

3.     Ski-in yurt in New Mexico

This one has been a “favorite” on my computer for years and my boys go nuts every time they see it. It’s a cozy ski-in (or hike in in the summer) yurt near Taos, New Mexico.

4.     Designer Treehouses in Sweden

Can you see it? You’re lying cause it’s invisible. We love this mirror-walled tree house that blends into the forest perfectly. But then how will the forest gnomes find us?

But wait, check out another room at the Tree Hotel: the UFO room! These are just two of the rooms designed by some of Sweden’s best architects.

 5.     Fantasy Construction Camp: Crane Hotel in the Netherlands

My six-year-old Jeremy, who is obsessed with trucks, would just die to spend the night in this crane hotel. That’s right! You can rent the one room in this working crane. There’s a small elevator to help you get up there. Sadly, it only sleeps two.

6.     Wigwam Motel on Route 66, California

It’s “Cars” come to life! This is the quintessential Griswald-type road trip stop over. And really, how could you drive by it and not stop for the night?

7.     Yunak Elveri Carpadoccia Cave Hotel

A little bit of Star Wars cave action and astounding scenery. The cave rooms in this hotel date back to the 5th and 6th centuries!

How about you? Where’s your wanderlust taking you? Have you googled (or stayed in) any unusual hotels lately? We’d love to hear about it.
