If you are looking for a place to stay near the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park then the tipis at the Cody Wyoming Trout Ranch are a great option. They are extremely cosy and well-appointed - so this is glamping.
We spent a night at the splendid Geiser Grand Hotel in Baker City, Oregon. This historic hotel opened in 1889 and saw a meteoric rise during the Gold Rush times when it got its nickname "The Queen of the Mines" and was described as the best hotel between Portland, Oregon and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Before finally taking the leap to full time living in a motorhome we watched every TV show on motorhomes and tiny houses. During this time we discovered a show called Flippin RVs that led us to stay at Vintages, a vintage travel trailer hotel.
It was an opportunistic stop a Out’n’About Treesort that resulted in us moving to Oregon nearly 10 years ago. It was here that we picked up a leaflet for the Oregon Shakespeare festival. I called and purchased tickets and off we went to Ashland for a couple of days. We fell in love with Ashland and Oregon and decided this was where we were going to stay once we’d finished our year long family road trip around America.
I am always on the lookout for unusual places to stay on our travels around the country and on one such road trip we were heading from the Grand Canyon eastwards towards Louisiana and I decided to book us in for a couple of nights at Kokopelli's Cave bed and breakfast in Farmington, New Mexico.
We are always in search of unique places to stay and after some hours on the Internet I found the Jailhouse Inn in Preston, Minnesota which turned out to be a gem. I had booked the cell block - so we had a set of cells to ourselves and a tub with jets!
I have spent a lot of time investigating unusual places to stay and one that consistently come up during my research was Dog Bark Park in Cottonwood, Idaho. So, as we journeyed through the panhandle of north Idaho it was the ideal opportunity to check the place out for real.
