How to Getaway

Everything You Need To Know For a Solo Getaway

A solo trip can be exactly what you need to feel refreshed and recharged, but we know you want to be sure you’re safe. That’s why we’ve put together a list of reasons why you can feel safe and confident during your solo Getaway.

Dallas Outpost

The Lock

All of our cabins are kept secure with a lock code instead of a key. This lock code is only provided to you, ensuring that both you and your belongings are kept safe and secure inside your cabin.

The Phone

Every cabin comes with a cellphone lockbox so guests can experience the relief of true disconnection. Having said that, solo travelers with minimal service might want a way to contact others in the event of an emergency. That’s why all Getaway cabins come with a landline, so you can feel safe knowing you have a point of contact just in case.

Our Team

Our team is here to support on during your trip. If you run into any problems or have any questions, we’re here to help. You can reach out to our Community team at the number provided in your cabin and someone from Getaway will be happy to assist you.

The Activities

We encourage our guests to simply do nothing and recharge. However, if you’re feeling jittery, many of the options available to couples and families are open for you too. Our cabins come stocked with books, a radio, and an activity booklet if you want a relaxing activity. If you want to go on a hike, just remember to bring plenty of food and water and be mindful of when sunset is. We also recommend a headlamp and compass if you want to be extra prepared.

The Solo Travelers

You don’t have to take our word for it. We always love hearing from guests who traveled to Getaway alone. Check out some of their thoughts below.

“I came solo and was nervous going in, not knowing what to expect. I felt very safe. It was quiet and secluded but I didn’t feel alone. I only stayed one night but would love to return for a weekend.” Leigh-Ann W., The Phillip

“I am a mother, entrepreneur, wife, and activist and I am always ‘on.’ I have been wanting to escape and unplug for months and I am so grateful I acted on this impulse- it was honestly the best gift I have ever given myself. Time alone in the cabin with my art, a book, and my thoughts was sublime. I came back refreshed and renewed.” Jennifer P., The Lorraine

“As someone who loves camping, but wouldn’t be comfortable camping alone, this gave me the best of all worlds. Security, coziness, quiet, fire, and fresh air.” Maura L., The Linda

“I took this solo trip with my dog to work on music and get away from the city, and it was amazing. I never felt like something was missing. It was so productive and much needed and I ended up creating amazing material.” Ariel G., The Shelby

For Your Free Time

The Rise of Female Solo Travel

Thanks to our hyper-connected world, being alone is becoming increasingly difficult. This perhaps explains why solo travel is on the rise, especially among women. We want to help everyone take a real break from the busyness of day-to-day life. However, it’s an unfortunate reality that for female travelers, safety on solo trips (especially trips to the woods) is a primary concern.

While we love spending vacations with partners, friends, and family, there’s a special sense of freedom and indulgence that comes with going off the grid on your own. The time is totally yours: you can make your own plans (or make no plans at all), there’s no agenda to follow, no compromises to make, and no one else to look after or worry about. For once, you are the center of your own attention.

Venturing into the woods alone can sound nerve-wracking. We want to put the concerns we hear from you — “Uncertain about traveling to the woods alone.”; “Being in the middle of nowhere makes me have safety concerns.”; “How is the safety out there?”; “For a female who would love to go alone is there anything that can prevent crazy things from happening?”; “Is there an emergency phone?” — to bed, so you can adventure away, worry-free.

Your Getaway experience gives the benefits of camping in remote woodland, without any stress or safety concerns. To make this isolated experience possible, every cabin has:

Lockable Doors & Windows

All our cabins have customized keycode access. All doors and windows can be locked.


Most guests have no trouble getting reception at our cabins, but we want you to lock away your phone and unplug. If you put your phone away, don’t worry: each cabin is equipped with a landline so you can contact the local Getaway team or emergency services if necessary.

Local Support Team

We have a local field team available on-site during mornings and early afternoons.  They’re nearby and ready to help in case you need it: just give them a call or send them a text anytime from 7 AM – 11 PM and support will be available during on-hours .

Neighboring Cabins

While our cabins are remote, each Outpost consists of a collection of cabins. You can enjoy the feeling of being alone, but know that other people are nearby if you need them.

The daily hustle wears us down. Quiet hours alone are the best remedy. A solo break into the wilderness can benefit your wellbeing, creativity, energy levels, and productivity. Lock your iPhone away, discover boredom (it’s good for you), and settle into the peaceful nature that surrounds you.
