Are You a Camper or a Glamper? Or both? {local getaway}

We have the perfect getaway for you — so perfect, in fact, that I almost want to keep it secret. But we wouldn’t do that! Just keep it on the DL so all of LA doesn’t catch on to how awesome the 805 is 😉 JK!!! kinda…

Anyway, here’s the scoop –
