They Started With 3 Off-Grid Tiny Houses And Now They Have Hundreds


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.

    As a business model renting out THs is hard to beat. Done right building them by your own crew are very low cost and payback is fast.
    I’d tend to buy a trailer park then switch the trailers out of THs, add solar, water and sewage plus internet gets real profitable.

      I agree, the idea of no internet is a big NEGATIVE, for me, and I would love to see millions of these affordable homes for seniors and veterans and the disabled, for sure.

    I LOVE the idea of dropping my phone/electronics in a lockbox and unplugging for a weekend.

      OK, but you can drop it anywhere inside the house and do the same. If necessary turn the darned device to the OFF position. YMMV

        Except when you’re dealing with addiction, better to have it locked away to avoid temptation…

        Yes, that is true. A little harder when checking in has become habitual, but not impossible.
