Tiny homes have become super popular all around the country. And why not? They are affordable to build, easy to maintain, can be moved to almost any location, are great for the environment and are just so darn cute! Many people have taken the giant leap to live tiny permanently but others are still on the fence, not sure if they can be happy in such a small space. An entire new market of vacation rentals have sprung up to satisfy the curiosity of the tiny house lover. If you want to know if tiny is for you, renting one of these small abodes is a great start. There are so many great tiny house rentals out there, from single units in remote locations, to small villages in popular areas. Here is a list of my top 7.
Number 1: Matlacha Village
Matlacha Florida is just west of Fort Myers on the causeway going from the main land to Pine Island. This adorable little community offers 3 tiny homes. Each one is painted in a different bright color that just screams beach vacation! The amenities in the village include a bbq grill, dock, sun deck and kayaks. My favorite home there is called Margarita. It’s spacious, the closest to the water and who doesn’t need a margarita?
Number 2: Pennsylvania Farmhouse
Many tiny homes are on rural land. The combination of a small space in a remote setting creates an opportunity for connections. Situated on a working farm a short distance from Lancaster PA, this home, having no WIFI capabilities, will force you to unplug and decompress.
Number 3: Think Big TH Resort
Located in the Catskills of New York this tiny house resort is one of a kind. Along with beautiful water views this resort includes an in ground heated pool, hiking trails and a waterfall, kayaks, tubing, a floating raft, baby goats, ducks and bunnies. Did I say baby goats? And yes you can do yoga with them! My favorite house is The Flat. It’s one of the bigger homes and has a great view!
Number 4: Ohio River Tiny House
Located at Riverside Marina on the Ohio river this tiny house in northern Kentucky clearly has a great view. The modern tiny house is super cute and would be lots of fun to stay in during an event at the marina.
Number 5: Smokies Simplicity
Located in Sevierville Tennessee, this rustic home is a great place to get away but still be close enough to drive in Gatlinberg to visit all the area attractions. This dog friendly rental offers hiking and biking to scenic views.
Number 6: Getaway Los Angeles
There is a really cool rental company called Getaway. They specialize in tiny home rentals within driving distance of large cities all around the US. The one you see is here is a property outside of Los Angeles Ca. They encourage their clientele to pack light and lock their technology away in provided cell phone boxes.
Number 7: Caravan TH Hotel
There is a groovy, eclectic tiny house village located in the heart of the popular and vibrant Alberta Arts District in Portland, Oregon. It’s within walking distance to lots of bars, restaurants and local attractions. My favorite house is the Pacifica, but they are all pretty cool!
There are so many tiny house rentals out there and as tiny homes grow in popularity there are going to be many more. From mountain top to city center, choose your location and experience preference and there is sure to be a tiny home to rent!
