Interested in a getaway that feels a bit more creative and edgier than a regular hotel, but still want excellent service, top of the line amenities and a relaxing vibe? Then the Caravan Outpost Hotel located in Ojai, California might be just what you need.
This special hotel has been open for a few months and boasts 11 carefully appointed Airstream trailers. The campsite sits on a beautifully landscaped oasis in the middle of Ojai and has a wonderfully eclectic gift shop that doubles as a reception area and gathering place. Each trailer is unique, although comfort and a bohemian vibe are common threads. All the trailers have been lovingly curated with unique touches like vintage records, interesting books and small succulent friends.
Guests can chose whether they want to participate in campsite activities or keep a low profile. The food situation is a case in point. You can get your communal living on by cooking a meal at the campfire or participating in a marshmallow roast. Privacy seekers can always stay in and cook in the trailer since each is outfitted with pots, pans and other cooking necessities. During our stay, we enjoyed a quiet evening in the Mali Mish while we cooked and listened to the sound of birds chirping outside the window. If cooking is not your idea of a vacation activity, fear not, you can jump on one of the complementary Public bikes and head to your favorite restaurants.
Clearly, this is not your stereotypical trailer park campsite. Oh no, the Caravan Outpost fell out of a boho-chic, glamping fairytale to reframe the adventure get away options. We say, bring on this type of caravanning!
