a Los Angeles Entrepreneur launches a Camped in a well-equipped place location in California Which aims to attract urban professionals who want to connect with nature.
Find a haven It was founded last year by entrepreneur Charlie Hammond, who has worked at several start-ups and is a proponent of getting outdoors to help alleviate mental health issues.
Hammond decided to build luxury sites near urban centers that would provide small cabins Equipped with amenities such as electricity, running water and wireless internet.
The sites will be geared toward urban residents, busy working professionals, and businesses looking for natural havens for off-site work and meetings.
The goal is to combine the restorative benefits of off-grid retreats with modern conveniences.
“The luxurious little cabins provide an unparalleled setting for remote work or simple entertainment, allowing guests to immerse themselves in nature while staying connected to the modern world,” the company said.
The first location – which will provide 40 cabins – will be located in Big Bear, a scenic area located 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
Find Sanctuary has built a pilot cabin and runs an on-site pilot test where guests’ cortisol levels are measured before and after their stay “to determine the resort’s impact on well-being and stress levels.”
Hammond designed the 322-square-foot (30 m) rectangular cabin with the help of his designer friends. For interior items, the team worked with San Francisco Narrative design studio.
The wood-framed unit has a steel base and a powder-coated metal roof. The facades are covered Douglas firThe windows, many of them operable, are framed in black metal.
The cabins are raised to two feet off the ground and rest on low-impact helical piles. For the pilot cabin, logs were placed around the piles to enhance its appearance.
Inside the compact cabin, the sloping roof rises 13 feet (3.9 m) at its highest point, helping to make the space feel airy and spacious.
The central part of the residence includes a kitchen, a bar-style dining area and a wooden desk.
On one side is a bathroom with a skylight rain shower and a loft-style reading nook with a queen-size Japanese tatami mattress.
On the other side there is a sleeping area with a California king bed and a double sided entrance.
Interior finishes include light Baltic paint birch plywoodwhich was used for cladding surfaces and custom built-in furniture.
Each cabin will be equipped with firewood stove This is strong enough to heat a much larger area. For those not inclined to make a fire, there is a small split system that provides both heating and cooling.
The cabins will have running water and electricity that comes from either utilities or on-site solutions such as wells and Solar Panels. The company will install a cell tower and create a Wi-Fi network for the property.
In addition to the dormitories, Find Sanctuary plans to offer office cabins that will serve as a “collaborative intellectual space.”
“Find Sanctuary was born out of necessity, serving as a complementary tool to manage my struggles with mental health.”
Hammond added that “digital detox” retreats can be a valuable experience for some, but they tend to be used in times of crisis. It is an “unrealistic and hard-to-reach solution on a regular basis”.
Although there are no open sites yet, Find Sanctuary has already pulled reservations from over two dozen companies. Away from Los Angeles, the company — backed by angel investors — hopes to open locations near New York City and San Francisco.
Other luxury camping sites include Autocamp property near Joshua Tree National Park which contains Airstream trailers and club notified by Quonset shacks and Luxury Camp in Oregon It offers furnished cabins, a fitness center and an indoor saltwater pool.
