Container City a unique Burnet lodging experience

Container City in Burnet County offers modern lodging in revamped, decorated shipping containers on Spider Mountain. The “city” of containers includes six, large storage boxes that have been cleaned, painted, plumbed and wired for electricity and then decorated inside to be your cabin home for the week or the weekend.

Situated on Lake Buchanan with a restaurant, live music, and easy access to the only year-round, chairlift-served bike park in the United States, Container City rocks as only a Central Texas hideaway can.

The cabins are fully outfitted on the inside, including bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a living area, and one to two bathrooms with  showers. A TV and free Wi-Fi are part of the package. 

Outside, visitors enjoy beautiful views of the Hill Country and Lake Buchanan from balconies, decks, and rooftop patios. Picnic areas and a fire ring provide a nice place to enjoy any meal.

The only bar and restaurant on Spider Mountain, Templeton’s, is also made from a container, serving a variety of local beers, wines, and spirits. Wood-fired pizza and bar snacks are a nice reward at the end of a day of activity in the Highland Lakes. 

The location is within minutes of the many amenities of the Highland Lakes of Burnet County, including boating, fishing, hiking, winery and brewery tours, and museums.

Cyclists coming to Spider Mountain Bike Park can ride their bikes from the park directly to their cabin. The bike park lift is available for non-bikers as well with a walk-down path or a round-trip ticket with panoramic views of the gorgeous Hill Country.

Container City also features spots for outfitted vans, campers, or RVs. With slips from 38-80 feet, each one provides 12-, 30-, and 50-amp service and wastewater and potable water hookups. Connect to the internet and enjoy a fire ring and a picnic table at your site. The onsite bathroom facility has toilets and sinks.

Container City is an ultimate unique experience when looking for a place to stay in Burnet County.
