Getaway Raises $41.7 Million

Getaway, a startup founded in 2015, builds “Outposts” — collections of tiny cabins in rustic locations within a two-hour drive of major cities like Atlanta, Austin, Los Angeles and New York. Those cabins sound perfect for socially distanced retreats, with guests checking themselves in, each cabin built with its own fire pit and spaced 50 to 150 feet from the others, with no common areas. Getaway emphasizes disconnecting from all the stresses and distractions of modern life as its cabins don’t include Wi-Fi, and they also have lockboxes where visitors can hide their phones for the duration of their visits. Getaway announces that they’ve raised $41.7 million in a Series C funding round.
