There’s no doubt Airstreams are awesome. Even if you aren’t already lucky enough to own one of these vintage mobile homes, you’re still in luck.
If you’re looking for something other than traditional camping and RVing, look into a stay at this unique desert getaway.
Kate’s Lazy Desert isn’t your typical hotel resort. Set in six unique, silver Airstreams the homes are equipped with comforts and amenities galore.
The inspiration for this all started in New York, after the owner, Kate Pierson, happened to notice a shiny mobile home on the side of the road, up for grabs.
She called the number that was posted, and made a deal to score the original “TINKERBELL”.
This mobile home was set as the original “Kate’s Lazy Meadow”, but eventually moved to their western outpost in California.
The smallest Airstream, “HOT LAVA”, was generously handed over to Kate, by owners who wanted to give it a good home. Inside, it makes you feel like you’re a magical genie stepping into some kind of lava lamp.
Months later, she got a call that she could have another Airstream if she was able to pull it up out of the mud. This Airstream became known as “TIKI”. Both inside and out, it’s got a pretty groovy, mid-Century Tiki bar design.
She acquired more RVs, and was able to have each of them fully restored and repaired.
Other ones became known as “NORTH TO ALASKA”, “HAIRSTREAM”, and “PLANET AIR”, each with unique qualities.
No matter which option you stay in, it’s bound to be a one-of-a-kind experience.
The Airstreams, re-designed by artist team Maberry-Walker, feature plenty of qualities to make the outpost feel like a true desert oasis. The homes come standard with a full bed and bath, small kitchen, air conditioning and space heater. They’ll each comfortably sleep about two campers.
“Hairstream” comes with a charming ’50s style to it.
This one is also dog-friendly, if you’d like to bring along your four-legged friend.
The classic Airstreams and quirky decor aren’t the only reason this hotel is amazing. The resort’s set in the sand dunes of California, offering incredible desert views day in and out.
After it gets dark at night, stargazing above can be so dreamy.
The resort is located in Landers, California in the Mojave High Desert, not far from Joshua Tree or Palm Springs.
The last stop out is about 6 miles away, at The Hero Market. Beyond that, there are still several a number of excellent restaurants and entertainment not too far away.
Here’s the view looking out from “TIKI”. Note the adorable artwork on the side of the door.
There just aren’t many places like this unique Airstream resort. Would you head out to this desert hotel? Which themed home would you like to stay in?
