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. - HillaryLa Boheme Living is an Urban Safari Tent Glamping experience at a private residence, in the middle of Los Angeles. Here you can grill onsite, order take-out, dine out, stay-in and book a book a personal masseuse (reach out to me in advance).  There are opportunities to hike, bike, play tennis; then 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!  **Your comfort is top of my concern-- so I will ask you to consider the following: 1. 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. 2. It's very likely you will encounter an animal or two, BOTH domesticated and/or wild. I own several cats. A few of them are super friendly and like to greet the guests and sometimes hang out in the tent. We also have Raccoons and Opossums that roam. Currently there is one Raccoon that seems comfortable to hang out on the porch. He will skootch away, but I want to be transparent with you; If you are allergic to cats or terrified of Raccoons, this might not be the place for you.   You may find 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.

This place is a hidden gem! It’s the perfect mix between nature and the coziest place you’ve ever been. It’s out in the open but also super private. There’s a shower and a toilet. I was really impressed with all the creativity in putting the place together. Hillary was so personable and friendly and gave us a tour to let us know how everything works. It was a little chilly but there were space heaters and electric blankets in the tent. Would definitely go again!

Really fun boho urban ranch setting
It was so great - perfect location for exploring the cool Frogtown, Highland Park neighborhoods and the bed in the glamping tent was one of the most comfortable I have slept on!

Glamping in the city done right!
Glamping at Hilary's Hipcamp was such a delight! She's a wonderful host and you can tell she has put thoughts and effort into this set up. The bedding is so so comfortable, and the extra touch of having pillows in different firmness made it all feel so luxurious! The whole place felt very private and even though it is in the city and you can hear city noises, it did not sabotage my stay. I'm typically a light sleeper and only was woken up a few times by hearing squirrels or what not. If you expect this stay to be a hotel it's not. In my opinion, it's far better than what a hotel can offer. But if you love camping and being outdoors but want to spoil yourself by not sleeping on the floor, then this hideaway will blow you away!

Can’t wait to come back!!
I had a really amazing stay at La bohemme. Hilary is an amazing host - very thoughtful and kind - she has thought of everything to make your stay here comfortable. The tent is so cozy with the heated blanket on the bed. This is my second time back and I can’t recommend enough. I hope to be back soon next time I’m in LA!!

My partner and I LOVED our stay at Hillary's urban glamp. The grounds are stunning and it felt like staying in a secret garden while still being within easy access of some of the best areas of LA. The bed was cozy and comfortable and Hillary was a wonderful host. We definitely plan to be back.
