Seattle Times: Glampsite of the week – vintage trailers at the beach

From the writers at The Seattle Times.

Get out to the slightly mystical village of Seaview on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula to stay in an Airstream or Spartan trailer.

Where is it?

Vintage trailers, mostly from the 1950s, are located on the 3-acre property of the historic Sou’wester Lodge, nestled among pines three blocks from Highway 101. If traffic is with you, Seaview is about a 3-hour drive from Seattle and, with its Victorian architecture, seemingly more than a century distant from modern times.

There are more than a dozen trailers, ranging from the cozy and basic to some so large and fancy it’s hard to call them “camping” (glamorous or otherwise). Five of the smaller trailers, with names such as “Potato Bug” and “Arrowhead”, are classified as “rustic,” though all have full-sized beds and cooking amenities. Bathrooms are available in a covered pavilion, and there’s also a sauna, spa and outdoor kitchen. Trailers all sit in the same field, so it’s a lively site, said owner Thandi Rosenbaum. After-10 p.m. quiet hours are enforced.
