For a super off-the-grid weekend getaway, these adorable covered wagons in the middle of the desert are the perfect place for some R&R. Blue Sky Center in California is a charming Wild West-glamping crossover space. You'll get tons of blue skies and wide-open spaces.

Blue Sky Center is a place-based nonprofit hoping to improve their rural community in the Cuyama Valley.

Throughout the year, they rent out their Shelton Huts for a camping experience in the high desert.

Each hut is available for $104 per night and can sleep two people, making it perfect for an inexpensive getaway with your BFF or your S/O.

You'll get to make s' mores by the fire and check out the incredible stars at night.

The huts do not have heat or air conditioning, so you'll want to pack accordingly based on which season you plan your visit

The entire campus consists of several spaces, from unique event centers to vending areas and popular wagons.

There is five covered wagons in total, and they all are a bit different. With string lights, picnic tables, hammock areas, and fire pits, it's the ultimate desert glamping set up. 

With tons of ways to explore the Valley, you can tailor your trip anyway you want. 

There's nearby wine-tasting, several parks, and horseback riding too.

Downtown New Cuyama offers antique shops and restaurants, while the surrounding wilderness has plenty of hiking trails and outdoor options. 

Put on your adventure hat and get ready for the ultimate high desert getaway.

It's the perfect place to take some time for yourself and slow down for a bit.
