This is the story of a couple (Sam and Lily, of Zions Tiny Oasis) who decided to sell their regular house so that they could build their own tiny home on wheels to park on their own property to live a simpler life.
They never really intended for it to become what it is now, but as they started sharing what they were doing, people began to ask when they could come and stay in the tiny house they were building. And I suppose that was the moment that their tiny house vacation village was born. It’s a tiny house hotel called Zions Tiny Oasis just outside of Zion National Park in Utah. And it’s covered here thanks to Jenna over at Tiny House Giant Journey/YouTube. Check it out!

How They Ended Up Starting A Tiny House Vacation Village
Straight out of a storybook this sweet little whimsical cottage is a dream come true for Sue Corl and her husband Ron.
The cottages’ design, look and feel was based on Sue’s childhood dream of having a tiny cottage just like Rudolph, Hermey & Yukon Cornelius (from the Classic cartoon Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer).
Thus the name of their tiny home, “The Rudolph Cottage“.
Ron and Sue have been living tiny for over 28 years. After living in a 200 sq. ft. travel trailer for seven years with their two cats and a large dog they decided it was time to up-size (or should I say ‘right-size’?).
So they bought 30 acres of beautiful lush woodland amongst the largest Amish community in central Ohio.
Then they spent over 2 years gathering the perfect materials to create this whimsical fantasy tiny house Sue always dreamed of.
Let’s check it out while I tell you the rest of their very inspiring simple living story…
