What was once a dumpy old home on this family’s property has been transformed into a cozy and romantic getaway cabin by Boston-area architect Jeff Young.

The place is 850 square feet, making it small rather than tiny, but it features some awesome creative space-use to maximize efficiency. Instead of having tall ceilings everywhere, Jeff used part of that height to create a kid’s loft connected to one of the upstairs bedrooms. Very nifty!

This vacation spot is perfect for skiers with heated floors (wow!) and a wood-burning stove. Curl up with a good book in the built-in couch nook or pull down the projection screen and watch one of 200 movies! There are nearby walking trails and you’re plenty close enough to spots for skiing, kayaking and more. You can rent the cabin on VRBO here.

This is a beautiful two-story tiny cabin on Butler Island in Vermont designed by Vermont Home Design and built by Surprenant Construction in North Hero.

This two story one bedroom charmer built on Butler Island incorporates the beauty of tiny living. Limited by the grandfathered footprint, two large shed dormers bring in abundant natural light to make for a conferrable second floor bedroom. The two-story walk out deck/porch makes for a great space to enjoy the lake views and surrounding environment.

This is the story of the Diedricksen brothers and their tiny cabin escape in Northern Vermont.

They originally bought the land in 2000, and have been working on the cabins for years.

Since they live in the city, this was an awesome and inexpensive escape for them to get away from the hustle and bustle of Boston.

The cabin gives them, their friends, and family a quiet getaway where they can enjoy nature, play music, and enjoy life.

They’ve been building and working on it since 2000 on weekends and whenever they’ve had extra time.

They used mostly no power tools to put everything together and there’s no running water on the property.
