A cozy vacation cottage tucked away in the woods of Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada. This cottage was restored by the owners who are very crafty with woodworking, stain glass and plastering. They call it the Artwood Cottage.

The cottage has a sleeping loft, open living and dining room, a small kitchen and bathroom with composting toilet.

You can see their creative touches throughout the cottage including earthy textured plastering on the walls.

They’ve replaced the wooden stairs that lead up to the sleeping loft. And check out the custom railing upstairs. Plus the fireplace downstairs seems to be wrapped with natural stone.

Explore the Artwood Cottage below.

Wanted to show you this awesome treehouse cabin rental that’s on Airbnb.

It’s located in Cave Junction, Oregon and is completely elevated off the ground.

As soon as you just look at it must feel like you’re in some kind of wonderland.

It’s not a complete home (no kitchen or shower) but it does have a half bathroom.

Just don’t expect a kitchen and all of that. If it were mine, I’d officially call it, “The Indiana Jones Sleeper Treehouse,” if that’s not too much.

Here’s a 250 square feet micro cabin I thought you might like.

It’s a studio set up but it’s self contained so you’ve got all the amenities you need in here.

There’s a bathroom, water heater, kitchenette, oven, microwave, mini-frig, coffee maker, etc.

And I love the deck out front and how you can open up the doors and windows and get a nice breeze through the house.


I encourage you to take the rest of the tour below:

This one reminds me of my buddy Deek over at RelaxShacks.com because 1) it’s a micro cabin.

2) It’s really funky. And 3) it’s a an owl cabin! And as far as I know, Deek likes owls.

The owl house also reminds me of Deek’s UB30 cabin that he built for his brother Dustin for his 30th birthday. So in case you’re interested in staying in the micro owl cabin, it’s located in Sandhills, Hightown, United Kingdom.

Either way, I encourage you to take the full virtual tour of it below:

Tiny houses on trailers aren’t the only way to live simply.

And if you like the water as much as I do you’re going to love this little floating cabin.

It’s a barge tiny house vacation rental on the water in Seattle, Washington.

When I go visit Seattle for the first time I just might book a stay here. What do you think?

Here’s an off grid micro cabin I just had to show you.

It’s too small for full-time living unless you’re going with the bare minimum.

I think it’s a great way to try out the simple life while on vacation.

Way more of an experience than a hotel if you ask me.

If you love tiny houses but seriously question whether you think you’d be able to live in one or not long term renting one is a great way to figure that out.

And although expensive, it costs much less money and time than building one and finding out the hard way that it isn’t right for you.

So for those of you sort of on the fence about it, I highly recommend booking your next vacation in a tiny house and getting some real life experience with one first hand.

Trust me because it might end up saving you months of labor and thousands of dollars. Because what if a small house is better for you than a tiny one? Again, best way to find out, is stay in one for a while and experience it.

Update: Unfortunately, this tiny home is no longer at this location and therefore not available for rent anymore. But you can still enjoy a virtual tour below:


So this is Tumbleweed’s latest tiny house design called the Linden. Plans for it should be available soon but they’re not out yet. I’ll let you know when that happens. Get email updates from me here if you want to. Let me give you the complete tour of the Linden below:

I wanted to show you this tiny cabin with its 18′ vaulted ceilings in Asheville.

It’s a vacation rental you can actually stay in if you wanted and I find it to be the perfect size house.

It’s really spacious compared to a little house on wheels but has a similar design concept.

A cabin that’s a little larger, more spacious, but still very small relative to even today’s smallest homes.

Jenny’s cabin is 16’x25′ so it’s approximately 400-square-feet with a large deck.


And for those of you who don’t like the idea of upstairs sleeping lofts, maybe something like this is what you might want instead? Come on, let’s go inside!
