Escape The City With These 16 Tiny Homes You Can Quarantine In


Last week we got in touch with multiple tiny home dwellers to talk to them about living life in a tiny house during the pandemic. Now we’re here to say: Maybe some of us who are stuck in the city can try it too!

Some vacation rentals on Airbnb across the country are opening their doors to city-dwellers who need an escape and a safe place to stay socially distant in. Quarantine looks a lot different in a locked in a high rise than it does on a piece of land in nature where you can get outside and enjoy fresh air even if you aren’t able to be a tourist.

So we made a list of some of our favorite Tiny House Vacation spots in the US & Canada below for you!

We post this with great caution: In no way do we at Tiny House Talk want to encourage the unnecessary spread of the virus. Please only consider tiny living for quarantine if you’re currently in a city/urban area where social distancing is difficult. Do not rent any of these places if you’re feeling ill, and make sure to truly stay quarantined when you arrive. While these are in great locations, this isn’t the time to sight-see.

Also try to find one within driving distance of your home, so you don’t have to fly in order to get there.

    Hi! I live in a small, vacation town on the Central Coast of California. We love visitors but please don’t come to small towns without bringing ALL of your own supplies for the entire time you are there. Our small grocery stores are already struggling to keep up with local demand. Also, please remember to obey all laws while driving and practice social distancing and mask wearing.

    What we need to escape from is the recession and THs are prefect for that. And boats are great for that either sail or houseboat. Used ones are fairly cheap now . The one shown is an easily built type called a Shanty boat makes a great one with many free plans. Pick one for plywood is a good choice.
