“It’s a huge campfire. I can’t tell you how many laughs and memories and friendships have been forged around that fire. It’s where people gather, we all look at the stars. The sky is the best sky I’ve ever seen in my life.”
We’re in great company with Georgie Bisval, Co-Founder and Owner of Constellation Creek, a magical place for people to switch off, gather, create and reconnect with nature and life’s simple pleasures in the quiet corners of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Back in 2019, Georgie and her husband, Sebastian stumbled across six acres of stunning forestland, creekside cabins and star-filled sky views in need of stewarding. Since then, they’ve poured intention, love and care into their outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, creating a tranquil base to disconnect from the chatter of everyday life, relax and rebalance.
In this episode, Georgie shares about her family’s pursuit and purpose behind Constellation Creek, the cozy and eclectic touches that make a stay in the modern cabins memorable, nature’s playground where kids and pets roam free, and the starry skies and soothing sound of the babbling creek included in every reservation.
