Back when we first told you about Getaway House, there were only a few homes in three different locations on the East Coast. But the concept of private, internet-free tiny homes where you can escape the demands of every day was so popular, the company now has plans for 800 tiny homes in 16 locations. Just recently, they opened their 16th location in Moodus, CT!

It all started when Jon Staff and his dad built three off-grid cabins and put them on a plot in New Hampshire. The tiny homes sold out almost immediately, and Staff realized they were on to something. The cabins themselves are incredibly simple, with either a queen bed for two or two queens (one lofted) for four. There’s a little kitchenette, shower & toilet, and a firepit outdoors.

They welcome you to put your devices in their lockbox and truly unplug from it all, just enjoying nature (and maybe whoever you’re staying with). My husband and I actually spent a weekend in one of their New Hampshire cabins a couple of years ago, and I shared some photos below.

This tiny house vacation has five full stars on Airbnb: Proof of what a spectacular stay you could have. This “Birch-tastic” THOW features beautiful birch-tree wall art that really brings the outdoors, inside.

There’s a lovely kitchen area, a compact bathroom, and a spacious loft bedroom with yet more birch artwork. The setting, though, really makes this THOW stand apart. It sits in a field surrounded by lovely trees, with big-sky views.

Here’s an awesome 144 square foot tiny house that’s similar to a yurt. The wooden octagon is a lovely private getaway secluded on 100 acres of wild land.

There’s a comfortable bed inside the cabin, along with an electric fireplace that keeps the place warm. A heated outhouse nearby houses a composting toilet.

Wait until you see the craftsmanship on the ceiling of this yurt! Check it out on Airbnb.

After a few years of watching tiny house shows, Jerod and Mia decided they wanted to build one themselves. Since they have a “normal” house already, they designed their THOW to be a vacation tiny house, Airbnb, or to possibly sell it, although they love it too much they don’t want to see it go.

The inside was inspired by the seaside, so you’ll find bright white shiplap walls and ceilings, with some lovely natural wood accents in the wood countertops. Jerod’s favorite part of the build, by far, is the bathroom. It’s a residential-sized bathroom complete with a flush toilet, stacked washer/dryer, and an amazing luxury shower with all the bells and whistles.
