Colorado News Epic Stays

The idea of sleeping in a bus hardly conjures up images of coziness and comfort, yet guests in these school buses are sure to have a relaxing stay.

In Paonia, Colorado, two school buses have been renovated and furnished to welcome travelers who want to get away from it all. The buses are located on the wooded property of Sage View Ranch, and they’re available for rent on Airbnb.

The two painted buses have been redecorated by hosts Laurie and Scott, who describe the experience as “glamping with a twist.” The two buses feature sitting areas, woodfire stoves, beds, tables, and couches, as well as an outdoor solar-heated shower and convenient outhouse.

On the Airbnb listing, Laurie and Scott invite guests to “Enjoy the nature here by taking a walk through the forest, sit by the pond (during season), have an evening fire in the community fire pit, grill out using the community grill, or sit outside with your favorite beverage and enjoy the sunset.”

They also mention that you’ll be sharing the property with Ziggy, their 16-year-old cat, and some other wildlife. “We have 15 chickens,” they say, “and a rooster, named Rodney, that free range the property, momma goat named Valentine and her two kids, Dory and Stella, along with a grand dog and two grand cats that all live on the land.”

You can rent both buses for only $50 per night.
