My husband and I (and our dog, Luke) stayed in one of the El Cosmico tee-pees back in Spetember of last year. I loved everything about the tee-pee and our experience, in general. Our dog loved running around the grounds with the other dogs (although the goats head stickers really tore up this city dog's pads) and the overall atmosphere was great - the vibe is laid back, but also friendly. Plus, the experience just feels so 'Marfa," by which I mean quirky, slightly challenging and entirely unexpected. Loved it and hope to return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- El Cosmico is an 21 acre nomadic hotel and campground in Marfa, Texas. In keeping with the belief that life should be a balance of adventure and do-nothingness we offer shelter, occasional entertainment, opportunity for learning/doing/making, and access to the majesty of the high plains desert. From its wide open spaces to the vast canopy of stars above, El Cosmico provides temporary liberation from the built world. It is second home to intrepid travelers and wanderers from all corners of the planet. Accommodations at El Cosmico include renovated vintage trailers, safari and scout tents, Sioux-style tepees, a Mongolian yurt, and tent campsites. The property also offers several communal spaces for guests - a hammock grove, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a community lounge and mercantile, an outdoor stage, a reading room. We rent wood-fired hot tubs as the burn ban allows, and bikes for exploring Marfa. ... more less
