Bed and breakfast
There is bed and brekfast accomodation across Texas. Signs are not generally displayed by individual homes, but most homes offering this service are listed in directories, which may be purchased by interested travellers. 'Bed & Breakfast inns' have up to 20 or so rooms, and are distinguished from 'country inns' in that the latter offer meals in addition to breakfast.
There is a wide choice of camping options across Texas, in the national parks, state parks, nature reserves and the coastal regions.
