Create family memories camping ("Glamping") in a new renovated Thomas School Bus ("Skoolie"). The Skoolie has everything you need; just pack clothes/food and come! Sleeps 2 adults (1 queen) and up to 4 kids (Bunk beds, two convertible twins). Cozy up to the wood stove, dine indoors (or out), and work at the desk. Electric, water, kitchen and half bathroom. Huge sink, stove top, microwave/convection oven, and Keurig. Perfect mountain views, picnic table, fire pit, and acres for outdoor enjoyment.
Enter the bus through the double swinging doors and up the stairs. There you are greeted 38 feet of awesomeness. Quickly you will see the wood stove and lounging area - a bench with plush cushions and pillows to enjoy a morning coffee, evening drink, and lots of laughs.
On the right side of the bus you will find a fully-stocked kitchen with all the pots, pans, dishes, utensils, (and space) for anything you want to whip up. There's a huge sink, butcher block countertops, and enough cabinets to store everything securely out of site. An electric, two burner stove top is coupled with a 3-in-1 microwave/convection oven/air fryer.
A dining booth which seats 5 and work desk grace the left side of the bus. If a rain shower passes through during your visit, you'll still eat and play comfortably in this spacious area. At bed time, this space converts to sleep two... The dining table moves, the work desk folds easily, and the dining booth chairs convert into comfortable twin-size beds
Past the kitchen and family room you find a set of bunk beds with night lights for bedtime stories. In the middle of the bus you'll find a half bathroom with a composting toilet and single vanity sink with mirror.
At the back of the bus is the master bedroom with a Queen size bed and memory foam mattress. There are also enough cubbies/cabinets in there to keep everyone's clothes out of the way, maximizing living space for everyone in the bus. The master bedroom has curtains on all windows for privacy.
The bus is air conditioned and heated by a mini-split (heat and air) in the bedroom, an AC unit at the front of the bus, and the heat from the wood stove for chilling fall and winter nights.
Outside the bus is a picnic table and lounging area with firepit. The views are so good you will spend most of your time outside.
A second Skoolie is ~50 feet away. A decent size shed in between the buses serves as a shared kids playhouse with a TV/DVD Player, Game Console with hundreds of old school video games, corn hole, art supplies, and board games. Owner's house is a few hundred yards away on an adjacent parcel.
*** NOTE: There are two Skoolies which share this lot. The buses are ~50 feet apart. They are generally rented together, but are occasionally rented separately (typically for last minute reservations). Dates showing as available on this listing have a high likelihood of having another small group camping next door.
