The West Coast-based boutique hotel group offer a new and human-free way to experience the great outdoors.
Travelling might be a tad complicated right now, but LOGE, the modern-day boutique hotel group founded by Johannes Ariens and Cale Genenbacher, are changing that for us all.
With little to no human interaction (sounds a little dystopian but stay with us), the two have devised the best way to see America’s West Coast whilst maintaining a safe and tranquil distance from anything that might disrupt your outdoorsy adventures.
Ariens and Genenbacher were pining for an easy-access escape from the buzz of city life as two outdoorsmen at heart. After raising $30,000 on Kickstarter in 2016, they renovated a series of bereft motels near major mountainous regions and now boast have five properties dotted across the states that are inspired by 70s road-tripping culture – gotta’ visit them all.
Their California location sits beside the states’ largest and most enchanting peak, Mt. Shasta, an ideal spot for spiritual vortex hikes, waterfalls, biking, skiing and just about any other sport and activity you could think of – even sound healing from resident crystal expert Beverly.
Should that not take your fancy, their Leavenworth LOGE in the Bavarian-esque locale of Central Washington state, or even Orgeon’s mid-century modern residency – which neighbours Mt. Bachelor – are sure to provide you with the peace and quiet so instrumental for a special get-away.
All properties have gear rentals, mini bars brimming with treats, small products and even big s’more making kits, so you can be at one with nature whilst making the best use of all your creature comforts. Looks like we’ll be booking our trip ASAP…
