Escape to the Pacific Northwest at Hoh Rainforest Caravan Cabins

We’re counting the days until flying into space is as commonplace as a cross-country flight. For now, though, when we need to escape society, we’ll settle for a few weeks in a treehouse or a cabin in the Alaskan wilderness. Few regions of the U.S. guarantee a proper, off-grid digital detox like the wilds of the Pacific Northwest. Enter: The Hoh Rainforest Caravan Cabins.

The mini-compound of travel trailers is situated in Washington’s Hoh Rainforest on the coast of the Olympic Peninsula. The prime spot inside the state’s Olympic National Park is remote, off-grid, and offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. By day, visitors will want to commit to doing nothing, to finding connection through complete disconnection. Just steps from the caravan, the park’s pristine beaches are prime spots for beachcombing amid tidal pools, crab searching, and taking in the waterfront scenery. Otters, dolphins, and even whales can often be seen playing offshore. Farther afield, the 1,400-square-mile park is home to vast and varied ecosystems that include mountains, rainforests, and old-growth forests — all perfect for exploring on foot.

When it’s time to retreat inside the cabins, guests will find plenty of tiny-house-worthy conveniences. Each of the four units boasts a minimal, Scandinavian-inspired interior that’s bright, clean, and streamlined. Off-grid doesn’t have to mean sacrificing the comforts of home. Basic amenities like hot water, solar-powered electricity, and composting toilets are provided. All include a stocked kitchenette with a mini-fridge, cooktop, and coffee-making equipment as well. The property’s communal outdoor lounge is a great place for guests to gather around a starlit campfire after dark.

Since partnering with Red Awning, one of the world’s largest vacation rental websites, they now offer glamping accommodations in more than 120 countries. Most are unique digs like treehouses, tipis, yurts, and safari tents, all located in remote locations that guarantee a legit digital detox.

Nightly rates at the Hoh Rainforest Caravan Cabins start around $250 via Glamping Hub. It’s worth noting that the price includes a total of four units with enough room for you and 13 of your closest friends. Or, if you’re desperate to get away from literally everyone, rent the entire compound for yourself. We won’t judge.

When I’m in a beautiful setting — like The Chin of Mount Mansfield —  I’ll get out my iPhone and begin snapping photos. Some places are too striking to ignore, and I’ll want to capture the moment to share on social media or reflect on later. Over time, it’s fun to build up a library and look back on those places.

Air travel lets you cover thousands of miles in mere hours, opening the door to destinations far and wide. Sometimes, that can be a hectic experience, with crowded boarding lines and cramped overhead bins. Subpar service makes it even worse. When that happens, taking a flight is more a test of endurance than a comfortable ride, and you can’t wait to exit the plane. 

On a full flight, a gracious staff makes all the difference, ready to lend a hand and ensure you have what you need. Some airlines do that better than others.
