Cave Culture

This weekend, my sister and I are going to this secret cave that we know of within the greater Los Angeles area.  It's a fairly spacious, one room sand cave with a "cavernous" entry.  Near the middle of the cave there is a hole in the "ceiling" that is exposed to the open air, allowing you to have a fire in the cave - a "smoke hole" if you will.  (And yes, we absolutely will be having s'mores..)  But I'm not going to tell you any more about it though, because then it wouldn't be a secret, now would it? 

However, I'm not totally heartless, which is why I've decided to let you guys in on a little list of some pretty legit cave hotels around the world.  They vary in their funky factors but this first one is pure perfection:

PERIVOLAS  
Santorini, Greece

 Consider it booked!

Consider it booked!

Srsly sweet, right?  Only accessible by boat, Perivolas sits atop a pumice mine.   

SALA SILVER MINE HOTEL
 
Sala, Sweden

Can you say cool?  Um, yes you can because this hotel apparently gets down to 35 degrees.  So, needless to say, you'll definitely be wanting to bring a coat.  (TOTAL sidenote:  Click here to read an amusing story about coats and hashtags -> #coats

This hotel has one room and one room only and is located in old silver mine.  The bedroom is 509 feet below ground and is replete with winding galleries, water-filled caverns, and full-on lakes.  

MUSEUM HOTEL
 
Cappadocia, Turkey

I'd say "Museum Hotel" befits these accommodations quite nicely.  And the cave even has some windows.. Not too shabby! 

KOKOPELLI'S CAVE BED AND BREAKFAST
Farmington, New Mexico

Definitely has that homey feeling going on.. The question is: Is it maybe too home-grown?  I'm undecided.   They do have a waterfall shower, Jacuzzi, TV and views of all of the Four Corners states... I can't say I have that at my home...

GAMIRASU CAVE HOTEL
Urgup, Turkey

CAPPADOCIA CAVE RESORT
Nevsehir, Turkey

Yes, that is the "spa."  GNARLY! 

SERINN HOUSE
Urgup, Turkey

I would also be quite content to stay here.. Just sayin'. 

Anyway, I really hope your weekends are just splendid!  I will be back to resume posting on Monday, provided I don't get eaten by some wilderness animal or get mauled to death by a mountain lion.  #fingerscrossed
