El Capitan Canyon has released 13 new Corral Cabins to kick off its summer season. Situated creekside, these contemporary rustic Corral Cabins join the Canyon’s offerings of fully furnished Safari Tents, Canyon Yurts and Canyon Cedar Cabins along the canyon floor. Bike and car campsites and RV sites are perched upon a bluff in its Ocean Mesa Campground.
The new Corral Cabins are located west of seasonal El Capitan Creek, where there was once a working corral. Cabins are appointed with separate living areas including a fireplace, kitchenettes with a full-size refrigerator, and full bathrooms with a tub and shower. Each cabin has a king bedroom and separate sleeping loft that sleeps up-to-three children. The Corral Cabins are heated and furnished in Western décor, and feature soft beds and down-style duvets.
With both hillside and creekside views, each cabin features a front deck with two chairs, a fire pit and picnic table just steps outside the door. Natural materials and craftsmanship, including custom woodwork using reclaimed old-growth redwood salvaged from a 60-year-old water tower on property, comfortable leather furniture and luxury linens combine to create a calm, restful and tranquil retreat.
Guests staying in the Corral Cabins have access to all the standard amenities of the Canyon, including using the complimentary bikes to explore the nearby beach and hiking trails, or taking advantage of the solar-heated swimming pool. This summer, guests can enjoy scheduled activities, such as yoga, story telling, botanical hikes, stargazing and outdoor concerts.
Families can enjoy bonding together by day, tackling the challenging ropes course with both high and low ropes, then gather around the fire for s’mores at night. After a day of adventure, guests can enjoy pampering and experience spa treatments in the serene Canyon Spa, choosing from a wide array of treatment choices. Other Canyon amenities include an easy hiking path to visit the goat and llama herd and organic garden (complimentary docent-led hikes to visit the farm are available Saturdays and Wednesdays during the summer), and the amazing new West Market that provides locally crafted gifts, luxury soaps and candles, beautifully stocked picnic baskets and Patagonia outdoor gear. Of course, the Canyon Market & Deli is well known for serving up everything a happy glamper requires, including organic meals, organic groceries, supplies and gifts.
