What a View in Vacation Rentals
A couple who stayed in the Northumberland, PA Wood Cliff Cabin said, “The sauna is great and the view is epic.” Besides treetop views and the music of the mountain stream, the seclusion of this retreat allows its visitors to experience a tiny house.
I’ve mentioned this before and still think it is a great idea. If this type of living is something you are interested in yet not sure if you want to dive in, why not try it out?
There are a growing number of tiny houses that people rent out. It seems that as the popularity of small houses and simple living takes hold, we are finding more and more of these places that are for rent.
Most are in scenic areas that includes beautiful views.
Some of these places are simple designs, others have unique architecture like a dome roof, tree house like, and vintage materials. Some are in the city while others are in the countryside with one being off grid and remote.
This way you get to choose what you want to try out and at the same time, you can get some great ideas for you own.
You will be able to see how space is used and what comforts are available for small homes.
Here are a few rentals that I’ve found. Many of them and others can be found on Airnb. They are all inviting. Some are more luxurious and/or have more amenities to enjoy than others which is quite common in vacation places.
The Pocket House – Portland, OR. “A stylish and eco-friendly alternative to the downtown hotel or airport inn.”
Wood Cliff Cabin – Northumberland, PA. “Secluded four season retreat, a small hand built haven providing luxurious beauty and alternative energy, perched on a cliff, 80 feet above a mountain stream.” Fully equipped kitchen, loft bed, and deck. Adjacent bathhouse with sauna, shower and composting toilet.
Pond House – Sonoma County, CA. This tiny house on wheels, next to a large pond. It sits on 52 acres of redwoods and trails. The front porch overlooks the pond. The house sleeps two in a queen bed loft.
Mushroom Dome Cabin – San Francisco Bay area, CA. You will think you are in a tree house with a geodesic dome loft and large deck in the trees.
Work of Art House – Texas Hill Country, TX. A “beautiful Victorian cottage custom made from period reclaimed building materials.” It includes vintage stained glass windows, antique wood floors, and a porcelain tub.
Point Roberts – WA. This tiny house on wheels has a sleeping loft, a sofa bed, and full kitchen.
While visiting these homes, you will be able to see how they are built and what amenities have been included. You may even find options you did not know about. If you are on the fence, it might be worthwhile to try out by visiting a few rental opportunities before making your decisions.
How that for a vacation? You can have fun and study your options all at once.
