Staying in a Glass House on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

Have you ever stayed in a glass house? I’m going to talk about enjoying a glass house in Lake Atitlan while on a vacation in Guatemala.

My family, my sons, and my husband are rock climbers. They love climbing. They love all things rock climbing.

The thing is, when you do rock climbing outdoors, there’s this thing called the approach or a way to get to the actual rock for the majority of the time. Basically, it’s a hike. I am not a hiker, so I don’t enjoy going with them to the rock, but because where we live in Antigua, the closest rock to us is about an hour away.

So they have to leave super early, and I’m never part of that experience. I decided for Christmas one year to go to the rock area but without doing the actual hike because the rock area is located on this beautiful Lake called Lake Atitlan.

What I did do to be part of that rock climbing experience? Find a really cool house and I had no idea what I was going to find when I decided to do the search, just local Airbnb. This is pretty much like a staycation experience, right? So when I started to do the search, that’s when this unbelievable glass house came into my vision.

Glass House in Lake Atitlan

Yes, I’m going to admit it.

It was an expensive one, but it was one of the most beautiful houses we ever stayed in. It’s literally all made out of glass. And it is right on the Lake of Atitlan, literally right there. So you have this beautiful property and despite it’s all made of glass, it’s very private, so nobody could see you just being there.

You don’t even have to leave your bed to enjoy the Lake right there. And because it’s so close to the rock, my men went off to rock climb, while my Doggies and I enjoyed hanging out. So you wake up literally to the sun rising over the Lake, you go to sleep and because it’s all glass, you get to see the entire sky full of stars. It was such an incredible adventure, and it was literally an hour from my house. So I want to inspire you guys.

Sometimes you don’t need to travel into the forest of Norway to find these hidden gems or go to some island far off in Fiji. You can find some really cool experiences right there, right by you, just go on Airbnb or go on a website that says unique lodging in your hometown and do a staycation just that alone. Because we were in this house, we were able to treat ourselves and brought like, some cool food that we normally wouldn’t bring and yes, I’m personally not much of a Cook, but in this case, because we were in this location, and they have this beautiful outdoor area, so we brought all this yummy food, or you could order in from a restaurant. I mean, go treat yourself one night and a lot of times you’d be surprised.

It was not that expensive. Sometimes it feels so out of reach and like all the cool stuff is that you have to go somewhere else. But sometimes finding things right there in your own hometown or even an hour’s drive will completely be an adventure for you, your partner, your family, or even a solo adventure.
