The Summit Cabin sits on a half-acre flat 3300 feet above sea level, with absolutely stunning views! The North Carolina vacation spot is completely off-grid, but still offers the luxuries that you most need.
The lower level of the cabin has a futon, cooking area with a stovetop, and a cooler for food. There’s also an outdoor BBQ for the best grilled meals. Take the outdoor staircase up to the bedroom upstairs, where there’s a queen-sized bed and a wrap-around deck with valley views.
There’s also a bathroom with hot water and a composting toilet available downstairs. You can enjoy evenings by the firepit outdoors. Book your stay over at HipCamp.

This is a cute cabin but no, not for me with the upstairs bedroom/outside dowstairs bathroom set up. Middle of the night bathroom trips would be very inconvenient.
That’s a good point!
Beautifully executed! Your architect should be severely disciplined! Is this in some utopia with neither rain, nor sleet, no snow, nor hail nor dead of night?! Who wants to get dressed to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night only to forget your keys and have to stub your toe climbing back up with a full bladder to get keys so you can come back down, walk to the opposite corner of the first floor to enter the building to go to the bathroom. It’s 2 am. Now that my blood is flowing through my body, I’m awake now! Might as well start my day! I get it. Back in the day we had to walk to the outhouse in all sorts of weather (but there are chamber pots, could use one here too, but schlepping that thing down the stairs would be a chore I’d rather not have)! But we should not design this way on purpose today. I do hope the owners love this, it is lovely and appears to be well built. It’s just so impractical. If I had to guess, I would say it was designed by a governmental oversight committee.
I know that given the opportunity, I would stay in a place like this. But there are designers in the world who try to help people not make mistakes. Yes they cost money. Yes you may have designed this yourself and you may not mind all the stairs in the middle of the night, but for others dreaming of a tiny house in the woods, please use a designer to create your plans. They will help you avoid long cold rainy treks to the bathroom in the middle of the night. You don’t need a full fledged architect, just a pro who knows how it’s done.
Middle of the night bathroom trips are ALWAYS inconvenient.
Stunning. LOVE the plywood ceiling. What a view!!
