Timberland Retreat: A Highland Cottage in Alabama

We’re excited to introduce you to the Highland Cottages, built by Timbercraft Tiny Homes in the mountains of North Alabama. Inspired by the Scottish Highlands, these studio-style getaway cabins are surrounded by forest and have lovely private decks with hot tubs for you to enjoy during your stay.

Each cottage has a large folding glass door that opens wide so the inside and outside can collide. You can enjoy the gorgeous forest views from your bed! When you get up, you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the kitchenette and get cleaned up in the stunning tiled shower stall in the bathroom. There are even towel heaters installed, which you’d find in any Airbnb in Scotland! What do you think?

You can open the space up and enjoy the porch.

A luxurious King-sized Bed with built-in storage and a beautiful headboard.

Gorgeous views from the bed.

What you see when it’s all opened up.

The vanity space is outside of the bathroom.

Some Scottish relics decorate the shelves.

A mini-fridge, microwave, toaster and hot water kettle.

Perfect location to hang your clothing.

Another look at the kitchenette.

The bathroom has a towel warmer! I wish those were more common in the U.S.

It’s nice to have the vanity separate from the toilet.

A rainwater shower head, and a smaller one, provide a luxurious shower experience.

The cedar-clad hot tub is a pefect spot to relax.

There’s a hammock and twinkle lights to make the outdoor area even more welcoming.


Timberland Retreat is tucked away in the trees and features a large deck area, an outdoor shower, and a beautiful cedar hot tub. The front panoramic doors can open up the entire front wall to experience the nature around you. All this and yet only a short drive from beautiful Lake Guntersville and many great restaurants and activities!

    They are a dime a dozen in New Zealand. I really thought that would be the case in the States as well.

      Unfortunately, it’s not! I have no idea why they haven’t caught on (I think it’s a fire safety thing), but that was one of my favorite things about living in Europe.

        Difference in infrastructure, Europe primarily uses radiator heating and that makes it easy to add some piping to add a heated towel rack. Among other differences like the power grid.

        While the US primarily uses AC and forced air heating, which doesn’t support this option. Leaving it often to an electrical add on but it’s basically considered a luxury and not very cost effective.
