I'm definitely a city girl and love living in the big city, but I grew up going camping with my family and love to be outside in nature whenever possible! I'm a fan of tent camping, but it's a lot of work. Ha! Seriously, packing all of the tent and bedding supplies, coolers of food, jugs of water...I feel like it used to take us longer to pack our car than the amount of time we spent camping!
So when Getaway asked me if I wanted to try one of their tiny cabins in the woods, I was SOLD! I'm always on my phone and one of my goals this year is to stop working on nights and weekends! (it's an issue!) Getaway is a huge proponent of work/life balance, and when I read "how to get away" in January, I knew I had to make it a goal for myself! Getaway not only offers a cute tiny cabin retreat from the city, they push you to turn off your phone, disconnect, and truly unplug from work and stress. It was the push I needed to REST and I loved it!
The cabin site is a like a little campground, with each cabin spaced out and secluded with a little driveway and firepit. They have locations outside of 8 major cities, and the Dallas site is about 1.5 hours southeast of the city.
After arriving and unpacking, I took a few videos (watch them on Instagram stories highlights), I went for a hike on the campground. I got back to my cabin and probably less than 30 minutes later, it started raining! So I didn't get to build a fire, but the rain forced me to rest, catch up on reading, and get some sleep!
Each cabin is named after a different grandparent of someone on the Getaway team - so sweet! I stayed at Jane and had a great time! I wish I had more photos to share, but I went into my stay knowing that I was going to completely unplug, so I took these few photos then turned my phone off! You can see the video tour on Instagram stories highlights.
Getaway offered to provide a $25 discount off your booking! Use code Rhonda25 to book your stay, but be aware that dates fill up quickly! You definitely have to book in advance, especially if you want a weekend stay. I don't receive any compensation from your code redemption- it's just a gift for my followers!
