Beyond Ordinary

Hi.

Welcome to Beyond Ordinary Guides, where we curate gorgeous imagery, locally cherished spots, and accessible stories.  We hope you enjoy!

Where to Cabin in 2017

The storms happening across the US right now make us want to curl up with a blanket in front of a fireplace and read a good book with a mug of hot chocolate (or a glass of Petite Syrah).  Although fireplaces aren't necessarily a feature in these cabins, we would love to stay in any one of them!

Rolling Huts | Winthrop, Washington

These instagram worthy huts lie 4 hours outside of Seattle and are the perfect place to recharge.  For $145/night for 2 people you can't beat the price + style combination.  All huts are equipped with wi-fi (although we'd encourage you to disconnect while here), and a cozy fireplace.

Camp Wandawega | Elkhorn, Wisconsin

Camp Wandawega specializes in group experiences, but usually has excess rooms available through Airbnb.  There are no modern amenities, a full roster of camp activities, and a 'Manifesto of Low Expectations' - all a part of Camp Wandawega's goal to provide an inspiring, creative space for adults to experience camp like they're kids again.  Their decor, vintage and antique finds collected over the course of many years, recently inspired a collaboration with Land of Nod.

Encuentro Guadalupe | Mexico

Located in Baja California's blossoming wine country, this 20 room boutique hotel is the place to stay for wine + design lovers.  An infinity pool that overlooks the desert, minimalist design, and delicious food all make Encuentro Guadalupe a destination on our list!  Starting at $269/night.

A-Frame Mountain View Cabin on Airbnb | Flagstaff, Arizona

A charming cabin set on 1.5 acres with mountain views means you can truly disconnect.  Unless you don't want to of course - downtown Flagstaff is a short 10 minute drive away.  Weekends run $149/night.

Treebones Resort | Big Sur, California

Charming yurts and tree houses set in one of the most magical places - the Big Sur coastline - Treebones will reignite your imagination and inspire you.  You can hike among redwoods during the day and enjoy a glass of wine at sunset overlooking the ocean.  If you really desire to be one with nature, book "The Human Nest", a human sized nest created out of wooden sticks with the best views at the resort.
