The trailers each come with their own kitchens and bathrooms, and the insides are all finished in marine varnished birch, making for a super smooth, and, yes, cozy little hideout.
Prices normally start at $125/night per trailer (and it's recommended to book in advance, since there are only five trailers to go around), but for the songwriter's retreat, El Cosmico is offering a package of $1,250 per person that includes 3 meals a day with locally-sourced ingredients, workshops with Texan troubadours Kevin Welch and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and a three-night stay on the site.
And if these dates don't work, we wouldn't worry too much about missing out on the fun. With a wide range of arts events and programming (from art classes to cooking classes to pottery studios to silk screen workshops), it seems there's always something fun going on at El Cosmico. And with the novelty of getting to sleep in a converted trailer under the Texas stars, the travel envy you'll arouse in others when you return home will alone make the trip entirely worth it.
