It’s vacation time for many. Head somewhere with a hotel, motel, Holiday Inn, or decide to do something different this summer. Marfa, the West Texas, high-desert land of minimalist art, cowboys, and enough sky and stars to make an armadillo dizzy, is also home to a twenty-one acre lodging, event, and hangout space known as El Cosmico.
Their vintage trailers are refinished and restored to a luxe level of cool and range from small (full bed, shared bath) to extra large (a king and a twin, full bathroom/shower). All have decks, kitchen amenities, showers (some in, some outdoors) and, importantly for Texas summers, A/C. Thoughtfully, El Cosmico trailers are stocked with robes and dry goods to hydrate, caffeinate, and satisfy snacky cravings.
They host music concerts and movies, give art workshops and camp cooking classes. In September it’ll be the site of the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love. Ever heard of a hammock grove? They have one. Also a large communal outdoor kitchen with picnic tables, a community lounge, a store. For fun, go see the town of Marfa, drive out to view the Marfa Mystery Lights, hike a trail at the nearby Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute. Or embrace the true mission of El Cosmico and do a whole lot of sweet nothing. Book your stay now at El Cosmico.
