"During our four-day road trip, our home base was El Cosmico, a quirky hotel and campground on 21 acres, filled with vintage trailers (Beth and I stayed in a 24-foot, 1950s Branstrator with a turquoise-painted top), Sioux-style teepees and yurts. Sara and Miriam holed up in a bright pink 1953 Vagabond trailer."
"There is probably no place more appropriate to situate a trailer than Marfa, the art-centric, holistic desert oasis of the Southwest. El Cosmico offers tepees, yurts, and, most important, several models of trailers that are sparsely decorated but seriously cozy. There’s a minibar in each but, intentionally, no Wi-Fi."
"An extension of Austin-based hotelier Liz Lambert’s collection of tepees, tents, yurts, and vintage trailers known as El Cosmico, the Brite Building embodies the same creative spirit but has actual walls and doors."
"It’s over seven hours by car from Dallas, but the artsy vibes in Marfa, Texas, have made it a magnet for tastemakers like Jenna Lyons and Derek Blasberg. In the middle of this cowboy country is El Cosmico…”
"For those who'd rather stay at the spa than sleep under the stars, there are still tents out there for you."
"It’s about creating more of a community, an escape, not somewhere you just sleep and order room service.”
