With great weather, a bustling entertainment scene, and a wealth of subcultures and interesting neighborhoods many of us can be guilty of becoming all too comfortable passing week on week in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and forgetting to take a break from the urban monotony.
Lush parks and beautiful scenery mean it can be easy to take in those little doses of nature and feel like we need not venture elsewhere while at the same time, in our digitally-dominated era, Netflix and other such platforms offer all the escapism we need after a long day at work.
No matter how much we love Dallas, breaking away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, even just for a day or two, has undeniable benefits for the mind, body, and soul. We all need time to unplug ourselves, breathe fresh air and reconnect with nature to create distance from the relentless demands of work, schedules, and technology.
Luckily, there are many different places to do this around the Big D, but if you’re not into camping and those days spent finding the right spot, fitting tent frames, and knocking in ground stakes bring back bad memories, we might just have the perfect option for you.
Getaway House is a chain of tiny cabin hideaways helping people in big, bustling cities like Chicago, LA, NYC, and Dallas, disconnect from their busy city lives with restorative stays in the middle of nature. Immersive floor-to-ceiling windows and minimalistic yet comfortable designs make for the perfect recipe to let the stress of routine slip away and focus on being in a flourishing natural environment.
Nestled in Larue, just 1.5 hours outside Dallas, 40 tiny cabins are spread out across rolling hills and high peaks. With four onsite picturesque hiking trails and the calming waters of Lake Palestine and Cedar Creek Lake just a short drive away, Getaway’s Dallas location offers the perfect restorative stay away from screens and city clamor.
With so many cabins spread out across 99 acres of stunning landscape, there is a range of options catering to different sorts of getaways. One-bed cabins and two-bed cabins cater to both romantic escapes and family adventures while an easy self-check-in and check-out process without a front desk means there’s no need for in-person interaction with site staff or anybody else.
Guests can enjoy their own tiny spot in nature, away from other cabins yet not completely isolated in the wild. Floor-to-ceiling windows on all cabins mean each and every guest wakes up fully immersed in the wilderness. There’s also no need for a dog sitter because furry four-legged friends are also welcome!
All cabins come with comfy queen beds, fresh linens, kitchenettes equipped with stoves and fridges, heating, and a bathroom with a hot shower. You’ll also find picnic furniture and a private campfire pit with a grill grate outside each cabin.
Perhaps one of the most important components, however, comes in the form of a lockbox that encourages guests to put away their devices and concentrate on the natural surroundings to effectively take a break from work, wifi, and routines to enjoy the company of those who matter most.
Pots, pans, and other provisions are available for purchase if you don’t feel like bringing your own and biodegradable soap, shampoo, and conditioner are provided.
