1977 is calling your name!
The Ambassador was originally built in 1977 by Airstream. It’s design was a major redesign to enhance its distinctive “silver bullet” shape. This 182 sq. ft. camper has been newly renovated this past year and it has all fresh decor! In this newest addition to our glamping retreat, there is a full working bathroom! She has two comfy twin beds in the bedroom and the couch in the front turns into another bed (its slightly larger than a twin bed, would certainly be cozy if you’re trying to sleep two). It comes equipped with a kitchen sink, coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave.
Wally Byam built the first Airstream Trailer in his front yard. Wally's neighbors started asking him to build trailers for them and he obliged. Noise complaints quickly followed, so Wally rented a building and opened a small trailer factory in Culver City, California in 1931 – Airstream’s first factory. The Airstream dream was born. When Wally opened the first Airstream factory in California, there were fewer than 50 trailer manufacturers registered for business. In the next five years, demand for the trailer lifestyle exploded and the industry followed suit – by 1937, there were around 400 manufacturers competing for customers. Unfortunately for many of those daring entrepreneurs, the Great Depression and World War II took a toll, and today, only Airstream remains. In the late 1950s, Airstream purchased four acres in Jackson Center, Ohio, near the Midwest factory. After battling cancer with his trademark tenacity, Wally Byam passed away on July 22, 1962. The recession and the Middle East gas crisis hit American drivers hard in the late 1970s, it did the same to Airstream. With the expansion of the Jackson Center facility and a need to consolidate The California plant was closed in 1978, and all manufacturing and executive operations would move to the Ohio complex – where they remain today.

Green Acres In Spicewood Texas is a Christmas Wonderland!!! My work group always goes for a weekend getaway in December that includes shopping, games, food and fun. This place fit the bill and more!! Raymond was an incredible host and had everything we could possibly need- from firewood, charcoal grills ready to go, a large refrig/freezer available for use and an ice machine. The bath house was beautiful and homey with amazing showers and a comfy place to gather with thoughtful amenities throughout! We stayed in The Ambassador, the Trailette and Tiny house 4 & 4.5. The grounds were clean and well maintained with little pieces of Texas Hill Country sprinkled all around. We were able to have our whole group outside for drinks and dinner, have an amazing time, a gorgeous Texas Hill Country sunset and campfire plus enjoy beautiful holiday lights all in the same place! We also shopped in the Christmas Barn which is amazing in itself- a must see and stop by during the Christmas season!!
