My friends at Mali Mish just visited a super cool vintage trailer hotel that I had never heard of. I had to investigate. El Cosmico is a one of a kind vintage trailer hotel and campground on 18 acres in Marfa, Texas. Where is Marfa, Texas you ask? Well, it’s a few hundred miles west of Austin. Just love to see these unique hotels popping up all over the world. And for El Cosmico, you can enjoy not only big blue skies and billowing clouds but, a restful stop in the middle of Texas and an experience most could only wish for.
“El Cosmico is part vintage trailer, safari tent and teepee hotel and campground, part creative lab, greenhouse and amphitheatre – a community space that fosters and agitates artistic and intellectual exchange.”
Trailers include: 1956 IMPERIAL MANSION, 1953 VAGABOND , 1951 ROYAL MANSION, 1949 SPARTAN MANSION, 1951 KOZY COACH, 1950 BRANSTRATOR and an 18′ LITTLE PINKY. All trailers come complete with bedding, towels, all kitchen needs, hot water, floor heating, fans, fridge and stove.
Bath House: our bath house features showers, tub, toilets, sinks and a few electrical outlets. Camping doesn’t have to be dirty.
Hammock Grove: relax.
Internet: wireless internet is available in our lobby lounge
Kitchen: shared outdoor kitchen onsite with fridge, bar-b-cues and picnic tables for guests.
“El Cosmico offers opportunities for creativity and play. Our evolving program of workshops and retreats ranges from sewing to cooking to art classes to writing workshops and more. Over time, we will add a series of art shacks – a silk screen workshop, a pottery studio, a darkroom, and others – places for both guests and locals to get their hands dirty. In addition to the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music and Love held annually onsite, our program of events and festivals is expanding to include film, music and cultural events.”
