el cosmico | marfa, tx

El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas is the newest addition to my dream list. El Cosmico combines a few things I adore: 1) airstreams, 2) an environment where my inner "gypsetter" can let loose, 3) Texas, 4) creative hospitality concepts and design, and 5) nostalgic travel.

In a word, my feelings about El Cosmico: obsessed. You have your choice of the following "shelters": tepees, airstreams/vintage trailers, and tents. Rates start at just $80 a night. However, El Cosmico is not for the faint-at-heart... it's definitely camping. Par exemple, there's no AC in any of the shelters and no private baths in the tents and tepee's (although, they do have communal bath house with quote, "a few electrical outlets"). There's also a list of recommended items to bring which include: a flashlight and extra blankets for your bed if you are staying during the winter. Clearly not lux travel, but still "glamping" (definition: glampingn. a form of camping in which participants enjoy physical comforts associated with more glamorous types of holiday.)

Even without the luxuries of a typical vaca, I can't wait 'till the day I pull up into El Cosmico and spend the night in a tepee. (I've always had a inner desire to be an Indian Princess and it seems that El Cosmico is the ticket for this Pocahontas.)
