About

(video by the amazing Jenni Kaye at jennikaye@gmail.com. THANK YOU!)

Not quite camping... not quite The Ritz

Camp Terralak's goal is to get people outside, off their phones, and enjoying this great state we call Texas. Tents not your thing? No problem. We have everything from a barn loft to cabins, or even a teepee. We also host boutique country weddings for up to 50 guests, or family-style dinner parties for 25 or fewer guests. 

What's in a Name?

Great Bones... Missing a Few (Crucial) Things 

We created a rough budget sheet of startup costs before we purchased the property in April, so we knew going in it would take time and capital to get going. Even while the total amount is more than $54,000, our Kickstarter goal will go towards getting a few big ticket items out of the way:

  • $5,000 towards digging a water well. We buy water from our neighbor, but can't use it in more than one cabin. So, we need to drill our own well. 
  • $5,000 towards an outdoor bathroom structure. We have plans drawn for a building with two toilets and two showers. 
  • $1,000 towards the hitching post! We don't have a ceremony site yet! It's on our shortlist to build one in our favorite cactus patch.
  • $4,000 towards heating and cooling. It's a glamp resort, y'all. HVAC will be really important in the hot Texas summer.

No Matter What Happens, the Future is Bright

I'm no artist, but here's a rough drawing of what we (hope) the property will look like someday. Your pledge would get us here much sooner, but we know we'll make it some day. We appreciate any even your consideration, and we understand not everyone can pledge! You're invited anyway!

Risks and challenges

My husband and I both work full-time jobs. We've been doing real estate on the side for ~4 years, but this is a whole new level of sweat equity...even more than we anticipated. We're excited, but it's also a little overwhelming. What if people think glamping is dumb? What if we can't do it all? So many questions!

In addition to pledges, we're also accepting words of encouragement, hugs and high fives. (-: This sh*t is hard!
