Urban Glamping at La Boheme!

This historical 1904 Craftsman home, known as The Liddell "La Boheme" Home, is nestled on 1/2 an acre of land smack in the middle of Los Angeles' hippest, historical gem: Highland Park. When on the property, surrounded by fruit trees and rolling hills -- you can't believe you are in a city, let alone Los Angeles! I was introduced to the delights of Glamping at El Capitan in Santa Barbara which was amazing and I wanted to stay there forever!! -- BUT with a busy city life of raising kids and building my own small food business -- I wanted to jump from Glamp-life to City-life (and back again) with more ease and share it with others. In my opinion, the beauty of So-Cal living is that you can literally spend the morning surfing in Malibu and that same evening find yourself skiing in Big Bear! (After 25 years of living here -- that reality still amazes me) To mirror this unique juxtaposition - at La Boheme, you will find a tranquil Safari Tent Glamping experience - with hiking/biking trails and all sorts of outdoor activities anywhere from a 5 minute walk to 30 minutes away by car---- but you can also hop on the Gold Line train (which is a 1 minute walk out the back door) and in choosing one direction, you are a couple of stops from Chinatown or Downtown LA's rich cultural experiences & exciting nightlife. If you decide to explore in the other direction, Metro's Gold Line (in 1 stop) will take you to the heart of Highland Park's bustling scene - offering a smorgasbord of eateries, coffee-shops, speakeasies, boutiques, yoga studios and art galleries - including LA's oldest bowling alley: Highland Park Bowl. Take the train further and you're in the heart of glorious Pasadena (home to The Rose Bowl and exceptional Norton Simon Museum)-- or continue out to beautiful Sierra Madre -- where there is hiking and exploring galore! At La Boheme you can grill onsite, order take-out, dine out, stay-in and book a personal masseuse (that will change your world!) You can find places to hike, bike, play tennis, come back and shower (with hot water) - enjoy some bubbly with your honey on the deck -- take the train downtown to catch a concert at the Staples center -- Uber back - light the chiminea -- roast a s'more or two and crawl into your super comfy REAL bed in your REAL Safari Tent! Remember -- this is URBAN Glamping -- a friendly reminder that there can be normal city noises throughout your stay -- like a Fire Engine answering a call - or the train running behind the property -- or a kid crying in the apartment next door. It happens. Life happens. Of the several people who have already enjoyed the Glamping experience of La Boheme -- normal city noise/life hasn't dampened the experience at all-- only made it more intriguing! There is both a fan for air circulation and/or "white noise" as well as a heater, if you should need either of them. Plenty of extra blankets are available as well as a cot if you are a booking for 3 guests. La Boheme also is a venue for weddings and other events -- so we love hosting and want to do whatever we can to make your stay the best it can be for you! Please reach out with any questions or recommendations for the area. If you are new to the area - definitely spend a little time Googling ALL that is available to you - and I'll do my best to fill any blanks-- ha! Looking forward to meeting and hosting you at La Boheme. - Hillary

This was our first HipCamp experience and it set the bar high! The site is a beautiful little oasis that you almost can't believe is right in the city, full of birds and greenery. There are so many thoughtful little details, both practical and whimsical, that make the stay a delight. We were so enamored with it that instead of grabbing breakfast on the road, we went out to get food and brought it back to eat, just so we could stay and enjoy the atmosphere a little longer. Everything about the experience was comfortable and charming.

The glamping at Hillary’s was great! We were very comfortable in the tent, and everything we needed was there. The backyard is very cute and cozy, and the shower and compost toilet work great. The location was perfect for us since we were able to take the gold line downtown. We would definitely stay here again!

I really enjoyed my stay! I was so impressed by all of the thought and care that went into every detail to transform the space into a true urban oasis in the city! Really, it is a hidden gem in every sense of the word. And Hillary is such a fantastic host. I loved chatting it up with her and she was so helpful and accommodating in every way. I would definitely stay here again! If there is availability on the calendar, grab it...you will be so glad you did! :-)

Quaint and comfortable
Hilary was a wonderful host, picking us up from the train station and showing us all the amenities of her wonderful set up. Fridge, fire pit, grill, toilet shower, like a house outdoors, comfortable bed in sturdy well kept tent. In the garden of her house, friendly hospitality. We even had a visit from a local racoon before going to bed :)

Camping paradise in LA
My wife and I loved this experience ! Hillary’s creative landscape is so unique and inviting. Every little detail gives such a warm feeling of home while also making you feel in a whole other outdoorsy world. All the plants, trees, flowers (and not to mention the cool cats cruising around the yard) just add to the awesome scenery. Our time here is best described in these 3 words : Amazing, Magical, Perfect ! Thank you again Hillary for making us feel so welcome and sharing your magnificent place with us :)

Hillary's place is so lovely! A gem of a spot. Beautifully curated. Excellent location as well: 2 min walk to the train, one train stop to the main strip of Highland Park. I will be back!

Boutique Hotel Glamping Vibes
Hillary's backyard was the cutest most thought through glamping experience I've ever seen. It felt like a boutique hotel in the wilderness. (While being 10 mins from DTLA!) Came here for V-day and had a lovely time, cooked a steak dinner and made fires. Nice bathrooms and showers too. Would 10/10 recommend.

An absolutely amazing experience. Hillary was wonderful and is a beautiful and kind soul. She is extremely welcoming and has a beautiful place. After an extremely restful night sleep in the very comfortable bed I enjoyed my morning drinking coffee while one of the friendly cats cuddled on my lap. It was absolute bliss. I would recommend this place to absolutely everyone. It is one of a kind!

La Boheme est Magnifique
This is the kind of place that informs dreams and inspires movie sets. It's idyllic, it's got everything you need, it's nestled in both nature and luxury. The definition of glamping.

We enjoyed our stay at Hilary's urban yurt! Hilary was a very attentive host. She thought through everything that we might need. I loved her hot water dispenser for washing hands at the sink since there wasn't hot water from the tap (we also used it for tea :-) The place is very conveniently located. It's close to Santa Monica, LACMA, Mt Hollywood and other hiking trails (the places we have gone to). Highly recommend it for anybody who wants to try something different in their vacation!

Clean and updated yet vibrant
Just what I wanted, an escape close to the city. Hilary has thought of it all- a heated bed, robes, slippers, plenty of places to sit, books to read, games to play and a vintage vibe that reminds me of being in my childhood house. Clean and updated but with character. Thanks Hillary!
