Colorado Mountain Retreat Tiny House on Wheels


What a cute tiny home mountain retreat for your next vacation (which is hopefully soon!). If you are thinking about buying a tiny house on wheels, I highly recommend staying a few nights (or a whole week!) in one to get an idea of what it’d really be like.

Of course, living in a space is much different than staying for a short time, but this is a very standard compact THOW that would help you get your feet wet. It sleeps up to three, has heating and air conditioning and is fully stocked with linens and towels. There is a grill outside as well as a community hot tub. And you can’t beat the views!

Inside is covered in gorgeous knotty pine.

There’s a cooktop and coffee maker to allow you to make some simple meals.

The mini-split provides both heat and air conditioning during your stay.

There’s a small apartment-sized fridge.

And Wifi! While it’s great to get out during the days and enjoy your surroundings, I still love Wifi haha.

The couch downstairs folds out into a third sleeping area.

Clean linens in the open shelving.

I love the little built-in nightstands next to the loft bedroom.

Here’s the couch in “bed mode.”

And here it is as a great spot to eat breakfast.

There are closest in between the kitchen and the bathroom.

And quite a spacious bathroom for a tiny home!

Plus you just can’t beat these views!

    Beautiful house! Here’s a question, though: As the demographic ages, I think there needs to be more of these houses built for elders, some small tweaks to accommodate the small challenges we face although we’re still functional, living in a body that has stood against gravity for 60+ years is…..interesting. Three tweaks that come to mind are: 1) Carpet with thick padding for the upstairs bedroom–crawling on our knees HURTS on hard floors! 2) Stairs: I like the storage areas using the shape of the stairs to utilize space, but those very tall risers can be a bit*h to power up, especially if said elder’s hips aren’t cooperating on a given day. Is there some way possible to add 4×4’s in-between stairs (maybe heavy-duty velcroed for stability–and to take away when selling to younger folk, so it won’t make an ugly mess to fix when doing so)? 3) The fridge: I’m always seeing those suckers down low. That’s another thing hard to do; bending or crouching. Can those be installed higher, with an easy-open drawer-front storage underneath, ameliorating the “ow” factor when raiding the fridge? Just some ideas. *Smile*
    Respectfully,
    Athena

      Where I come from we have a saying. What madam wants, madam gets. Including the bill.

      Of course “you” can decide what “you” want in your tiny house. And some of your suggestions are indeed eminently very sensible. Especially for oldies like me. And I’m suspecting you are in the same demographic as me. 65+!

    Why are all of the faucets turned on in the pictures? Wasn’t necessary to make me believe water comes out of them. Just struck me as a bit ridiculous.

      Well, the snow in the first photo suggests it may have had something to do with the cold weather and that this is a glamping site…

    Why don’t you show economical tiny houses more instead of all the fancy smancy shiny expensive ones. You might actually push tiny house living further faster. When people think about spending 60,000+ on a tiny house, the usual thought path then turns to full size houses. The same builds can be done without all of the fancy expensive shine. It would cut the cost in half. Of course I understand that now a days the companies have to make their millions also. Wish people would quit being so greedy. I’ve had to live without being hooked to an electrical grid since June of ’19 just because my house was built by an individual and the county discourages that as well as wants to be able to place them in higher tax brackets by forcing them to be on permanent foundations.

      Terry, I understand your frustration. You are able to go back to earlier times… just click on Houses at the top of the page and then click the type of house you want to look at. A whole bunch come up and then at bottom there is a link called next page. Click that and, surprise you get a previous page so you can check out the links all the way to the bottom where there are now 2 links next page and previous page. Quite why Alex has previous page on the right I don’t know. Maybe that’s the way you do it in America. Then again, maybe its an Alex thing.

      I agree, Terry. I’ve been following the TH movement since it’s inception, and I’ve seen the same arc towards fancy/bigger/expensive….I think the new generations of tiny homes are mostly beautiful, but fewer and fewer can be called Tiny Homes; the original vision–not just the older links– are becoming harder to find. Many of these latest tiny houses are actually of the Small House category, and would serve better as such. Humankind is always trying to conquer the next hill/step up the game/lean into it, which in aggregate benefits the human race, but tends to leave behind those of us with no confidence of reliable access to food & shelter. This is where Tiny Houses -on wheels- is an achievable home of one’s own, but not if the payments are untenable for someone who’s entire income is a SS check of $1,000.oo for an entire month. In short, I think these tiny homes have to keep being produced.

        Tiny is relative, because for most people it’s a matter of perspective and people all over the world have a different perspectives of what they consider normal for what they then consider large or small or tiny…

        But reality is houses are not all equal and there’s no one size fits all standard as it really depends on efficiency and how many people the home needs to serve. 1-2 people can get away with a much smaller home than a family, especially a large family who are proportionally going to need a larger home to get even the equivalent amount of space for each household member as 1-2 have in a smaller home…

        So actual needs have to be understood when making comparisons and understanding what is actually happening in the market that has now spread to a larger percentage of the population, including a larger age group from young to old, and now includes a lot of families and people intending to use these homes for more than just temporary housing or starter homes.

        While there should be a reality check on just how low cost tiny homes can go… They’re not a magic solution that sweeps away all the problems of the world and make housing affordable even with people with next to no income.

        There are minimum standards of living that require a minimum cost to provide, unless you plan on building one yourself from materials you collected, which is how the really low cost tiny homes were built, there isn’t really a way that will work for most people to get out of those minimums, and not everyone can be young, healthy, live in an ideal climate or be nomadic and be single people who can live in a truly minimalistic home without suffering…

        Older people and people with special needs, for example, can’t just opt to use a ladder and sleep in a loft, or do without good insulation and good temperature control no matter what climate zone they live in, etc, just to save money on the cost of the home.

        This is why you don’t see a lot of people scrambling to live in RV’s despite being an easy way to achieve very low costs… Homes have to meet the needs of those who live in them but that won’t mean the same minimums will work equally well for everyone, and it actually has to be appropriate to each person’s needs and not a one size fits all standard…

        So there’s a limit to what Tiny living can do when it comes to dealing with the needs of most people and how many people it will actually help, as it does allow a scaling down of most costs, but it won’t eliminate them all and especially not the costs people have no choice but to cover to meet their needs, which means there has to be other additional solutions, like getting more people into higher income ranges, addressing the cost of other factors like land, dealing with limited resources by finding more sustainable options, just getting more housing because housing growth hasn’t kept up with population growth for over half a century, addressing societal issues like NIMBY’ism, dealing with the other reasons people may be in low income situations, etc. to help those that still need help as well as making sure others don’t end up being in need or just have the right to improve their lives or just be able to live the life they choose…

        No one solution is ever going to work for absolutely everyone but multiple solutions can work together to start reaching that goal…

    Doesn’t anyone build them to live in anymore.

      Of course, but like anything else that can be purpose built or adapted there’s plenty of other things people will use them for as well. Since, people’s needs are not only limited to just housing…
