Liz Lambert, creator of the beautiful Hotel San Jose in Austin, opened El Cosmico in 2009 on an 18-acre plot of land on the plains of Marfa,Texas. 430 miles west of Austin, Marfa is only home to around 2000 residents, but has become a destination for art enthusiasts and adventurers from all over the world.
Lambert and several teams of architects, artists, builders and students designed El Cosmico with a mission of sustainability and communal interaction, "El Cosmico is part vintage trailer, safari tent and teepee hotel and campground, part creative lab, greenhouse and amphitheater - a community space that fosters and agitates artistic and intellectual exchange."
Rates range from $40 - $170 depending on your roof/night of choice
