El Cosmico Hotel: embrace the West Texas lifestyle.
Categories: Homes / Dwellings, TinyHouse
The hotel has been open since late 2009. It was constructed incredibly organically over the course of several years, and it's constantly evolving and growing. We added a new tepee last year. This year we're just waiting for the weather to warm up to build our Mongolian yurt. El Cosmico is owned by Liz Lambert, a hotelier who owns several other properties in Texas (Hotel San Jose and Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin and Hotel Havana in San Antonio), and is run by her company Bunkhouse.
Everyone needs a little R&R, especially when that pursuit takes you deep into the high plains desert landscape of remote West Texas. Referred to as ElCosmico, this desert retreat offers plenty of recreational activities to help clear the mind from all worldly worries. Be it an afternoon of adventure or a weekend of complete relaxation, ElCosmico offers plenty in the realm of mind easing energy.
As far as accommodations are concerned, the folks here want you to fully embrace the West Texas lifestyle. That means, renovated trailers, safari and scout tents,Souix-styleteepees, and Mongolian yurts are available to sleep you and whoever comes along for the experience.Onsite there’s also several community spaces such as a hammock grove, outdoor kitchen and dining area, community lodge, an outdoor stage, reading room and mercantile.
And if you plan on staying during one of the cooler months, feel free to rent out of their wood-fired hot tubs or take an afternoon bike ride around the neighboring town of Marfa. It’s the ideal spot for a temporary reprieve from the civilized world; a home for travelers and vacationers alike. Nightly rates available upon request.
