Spend The Night In An Authentic Retro School Bus Near Colorado’s Mesa Verde
Colorado is famous for its world-class hotels and campgrounds, but did you know the Centennial State is also full of one-of-a-kind accommodations (a la yurts, glamping tents, and hobbit houses)? If you are ready to try something new and exciting, we highly recommend staying a night (or 2) in this refurbished 1957 school bus:
Welcome to Mancos: Home to Elouisa, the Refurbished '57 Schoolbus!
"Elouisa is a groovy converted schoolbus situated on 36 gorgeous acres in the woods of Southwest Colorado," begins the listing, which is located a mere 5 miles from Mesa Verde.
As per Airbnb, Elouisa - "who" is ready to settle down and rest after many years on the road - is a "cozy place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life," as well as a "fantastic stop over on your way through Southwestern Colorado."
Boasting 1 bed and 1 bathroom, Elouisa can comfortably sleep 2 and features not only a comfortable bed but also a small yet functional kitchen and access to wide-open spaces that you will not find anywhere else.
In terms of the restroom, Elouisa is fitted with a composting toilet and a sink to wash hands (with jugs of water), as well as access to a full private bathroom within walking distance.
Rates for Elouisa, the Refurbished '57 Schoolbus are $72/night.
Seriously, $72/night for both quiet and incredible views? We are there!
