Available Sleeping Arrangements

Private rooms: Every private room has a custom queen size bed for one or two adults, plus enough room for a cot if you're traveling with a child. They also include a custom concrete sink, a huge window and a ceiling fan.

Super Bunks: A custom, hand-built, wooden art piece made by Haskel Sears Design, taking the format of a traditional bunk bed and bringing it to a level of style and utility never before seen in a bunk. Each bed includes a privacy curtain, fan and a reading light, along with two extra outlets to charge whatever you need. Each bed also comes with a spacious locker built beneath the Super Bunk.
