Tortoise Shell Camping Cube Delivery

Last Friday I had the opportunity to go on a delivery with Bill Kastinos from Tortoise Shell Homes to Chanslor Guest Ranch located 1 mile north of Bodega Bay.

The historic 378 acre Chanslor Ranch is known for its magnificent ocean views, horse back riding on the beach, ocean view rooms, wildlife preserve and the thousands of acres of Sonoma Coast State Beach which surround the property. It has also been a camping destination for the last 50 years.

Chanslor Ranch offers camping with exceptional views of Bodega Bay and Salmon beach from your own tent or an installed platform tent complete with bed, stove, propane fire pit and portable restroom. Chanslor Ranch is bordered by Salmon Creek to the north and Highway 1 to the south. There is a fishing pond available to guests and there are trails leading to Salmon Creek Beach.

Chanslor Ranch and Codding Enterprise’s Sonoma Mountain Village in Rohnert Park, California have teamed together with Tortoise Shell Homes to offer a new way to enjoy this beautiful setting. Tortoise Shell Homes is building the camping cube pictured above and another model based on the Galapagos model with loft and standard roof as an option to rent for luxury camping. Groups can rent these tiny homes and bring your own tents to pitch around the “main house” in spectacular private ocean view locations.

The camping cube includes large window areas, shower, toilet, kitchen with two burner stove and refrigerator, plus a oversize futon or Murphy bed to sleep on. These units will be set up for off-grid use and will be powered by wind and solar. They are set up with a grey and black water system so they can be pumped just like an RV.

To learn more about Chanslor Ranch visit their website at www.ChanslorRanch.com. Now you can experience a stay in a tiny house by renting one of their camping cubes.

Looks great Kent! Nice to see Bill at Tortoise Shell is building more and more houses. I really like the simplicity of this new house and would love to stay in one for the weekend. Now we can! 🙂

Woah! I’ve never heard of the tortoise shell camping cube. Man, I like the concept. You basically get to take your bedroom and mini-kitchen with you everywhere you go?!
