Off the grid glamping in New Cuyama, California

Unplug in the hidden valley of Enchantment

Blue Sky Center offers more than just a unique Airbnb experience. This non-profit organization is working hard to strengthen its community by supporting entrepreneurs and the rural economy. Blue Sky Center features a small cantina, a t-shirt vendor, and a classic car restoration shop onsite to support and empower the local neighborhood. They even started their own beverage company, all produced with local ingredients from the surrounding farms. If you are looking to stay overnight, choose from one of their five “Shelton Huts”, all carefully placed like a half-moon around a common area. Here, in the peace and quiet, enjoy an outdoor picnic, take a plunge in the cowboy pool or play some cornhole.

If living off the grid in the desert with little access to wifi and no A/C is not your cup of tea, then check out Cuyama Buckhorn, just right down the street.
