Skyline Tiny Home In Portland’s Tiny House Hotel

This post contains affiliate links.

The Skyline is a 160 sq. ft. tiny home on wheels in Portland, Oregon’s Caravan Tiny House Hotel.

Hotel guests can choose from a variety of other tiny houses on trailers to spend the night in depending on availability. Occasionally they even host tiny house tours.

It’s a great way to spend your next vacation if you want to experience what it’s like living in a tiny house. And if you’re seriously considering going tiny, I’d say this is a must before you consider building. This way first you can make sure it feels right. If you want, check out the tiny house vacations category here at Tiny House Talk for even more options.

    I think this is very well done and looks comfortable. One thing I don’t live about motels/hotels is the uncomfortable chairs. That couch looks very inviting.

    I like the wooden interior! And for a hotel, it was a good idea to place the beds like bunk beds. Very cool…

    I would find this very uncomfortable. It’s SO DARK. It’d feel like living inside a crate, which essentially you are, but bright paint and more light would at least make it more bearable.

      Same here. Much too dark; I’d feel like I were in a cave. Otherwise, I very much like the set-up, especially the bunks.

      It’s a rental unit in Portland. Plenty of painted white rentals to choose from if this isn’t to your liking. I’d prefer this wood looking one assuming they were similarly priced. This looks comfortable to wake up in compared to the usual beige walls usually in hotels.

    Love. Love. Love. The railing/steps to the loft. Also the triangle toilet bowl looks like it would save some bathroom space. But the brown …. Although I like brown, this one has a bit too much of a good thing. Walls, furniture, window coverings, even some of the books on display. At least the toilet is green and the kitchen sink/fridge is white. Wonder where the ladder in the bathroom goes. Overall, I love the design. Going in my keep for good ideas file!

    Mom and I are already planning to stay at the Caravan TH Hotel while we are waiting for our THOW to be built. The owner does such a good job of things and I love the fact you have a choice of accommodations.

    Very nice work. It looks cozy. The natural wood look has so much warmth and variety of color as well as being ecological. I don’t understand all the criticism. The small house allows freedom to make your vision a reality. Keep it positive, and design your own dream. One person’s dream may be another”s nightmare.

    I love this one. It looks so warm (color-wise) and peaceful.

    This tiny house looks very cozy and comfortable. Maybe those stairs over the toilet are a place to hang towels??? Just thinking “out loud.”

    • carrie

      Cathyann…I was wondering about those ‘toilet stairs’ too…whats up with those? I actually love the darkness and I find it cozy..normally I am extremely warehouse Uber contempory..with a touch of Scandinavian WHITE for everything…but i find this place like the womb!
      For living: the upper loft for living and bottom for bedroom. Btw>I still need lots of storage and a w/d too.

        Maybe stairs are for towels?

        Like your comments….but pray tell, what is a w/d?

          Hi Steve!

          W/d = Washer/Dryer

          Serves me right for not being domestically oriented.

      • BrownLuster
        March 22, 2015, 8:36 am

        Carrie & CathyAnn…I don’t think that those are stairs. It looks like shelving. The way that the wood is stained gives the impression of a ladder. Ingenious! I like it!!

        • BrownLuster
          March 22, 2015, 8:41 am

          OK maybe not. Lol! After looking at the photo again close up, now it looks like copper pipe or something…as Debra said, maybe it’s a towel rack. Idk now…

        • BrownLuster
          March 22, 2015, 8:59 am

          Well if its not shevling, it should be! Lol. I like a lot of the design elements, however I agree with Carrie I would need a tad more storage, even though it is a tiny hotel cottage. It still looks very warm, cozy & relaxing.

          Carrie, I’m assuming that’s why there is no w/d as well because it is a tiny hotel cottage & most guests have short stays maybe?

    I love the rustic look, beautiful!

  • Randi

    I think this is absolutely beautiful!!! Warm and cozy. Love the upper and lower living areas. Different style than most that is very refreshing!

    This looks so cozy and inviting! I, too, wonder what the “stairs” are in the bathroom? I don’t think that they’re for towels, as there are towels and washcloths stored on a shelf alongside the tp, as is shown in the first image of the bathroom. Hmmm… I really love the living room in the loft, and the bedroom below. It’s looks like such a comfy place to sleep! Awesome! 🙂

    These were not lived in before, if I remember correctly? So this is the first use… Hotel…
    I am curious why that was decided?

    This is a beautiful and comfortable TINY HOUSE. And I think a few nights stay at this place could be fun. Also, if you haven’t, check out the bar/restaurant right next door to the motel. It looks very nice. It’s called The Bye Bye!

  • March 22, 2015, 12:05 pm

    Normally I prefer more light and lighter colors in small spaces but this is an exception. Warm, cozy and soothing to ones soul is how I would describe this cutie.

      I love it!

    It does look spiffy.
    Here in Florida with our high humidity I am thinking that building it from Slash Pine (a.k.a. Dade County Pine) or Cypress would be a must. We have real issues with termites and wood rot.

    Also, I am believe a white enamel steel roof with a 6 foot overhang would go a long way towards keeping the house cooled down in our long summer season (essentially April to November).

    But from a single guy’s perspective, this house is just right!

  • Susanne
    March 22, 2015, 8:03 pm

    You have the right idea Steve! Overhang and white-I did not see many shade trees in Florida! 🙁

    • carrie
      March 22, 2015, 9:17 pm

      Steve and Suzanne Yes, I love the white metal roof idea too with a huge overhang..I am here on the bayou in Mississippi….need heat reflection and rain protection.

  • Steve in Palm Bay
    March 22, 2015, 8:20 pm

    Susanne…you are right….while I am but a mile west of the cooling breezes of the Indian River, I am mostly in the Florida Flatwoods. …gets a bit sunny of there. But oh so pretty!

    Also I should think a ten ft. ceiling to be a must. The hot air has gotta go somewhere!

    I have one question and only one question: where does one obtain a cornered toilet? That thing presents so many new design ideas…

  • Liz

    I know this is pretty dark inside but boy it’s awesome as far as I’m concerned. It just looks so darn homey, warm, inviting, and a place I wouldn’t mind being at all!! I think it’s a GREAT home.

    I have stayed in Skyline at Caravan and it is extremely comfy & cozy! I heartily recommend this experience for anyone looking to downsize or checking out the tiny house scene. It really gets the creative wheels turning :).

      Cool! That’s good to know, Kristina, thanks for sharing 🙂

    The ladder behind the toilet extends out in front of the toilet (pivoting on the lawn mower handle) to allow acces to to window and storage above.
