Tiny homes: they're taking over the world, 150 square feet at a time. You practically can't browse the Internet (or HGTV) without tripping over another luxe microlodge inviting you inside for a tour. And let's admit it—the trend may seem overprecious, overstoked, and even overdone, but if you're like us, you probably can’t resist a peek. Wonder what it might be like to glamp all the time? Go for a trial run at one of these nearby tiny house hotels and trailers—it's choose your own adventure time!
LOVE 1950s NOSTALGIA?
TRY: the Vintages Trailer Resort in Dayton, OR
With 31 trailers total, the Vintages has plenty of options for you. Also with each stay: complimentary cruiser bikes (childhood dream complete), luxury robes, and the quality of a hotel, on wheels.
NEED A ROMANTIC GETAWAY WITH UNLIMITED VINO?
TRY: An Escape Vista at Arcane Cellars in Salem, OR
Through November, this winery abutting the Willamette River is hosting one lone tiny home—available as a guest rental!—where you can hide from your problems and/or guzzle pinot gris all day long.
CRAVE MOUNTAIN AIR AND PET-FREE POTLUCKS?
TRY: Mt Hood Tiny House Village in Welches, OR
This destination is for those who enjoy roasing s'mores around a communal campfire—here ringed not with tents but a semi-circle of country-rustic tiny cabins. Located in Mt. Hood National Forest, the resort's brand-new Tiny House Village is just steps from skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and more.
UP FOR A COASTAL ROCK 'N' ROLL SPA?
TRY: Sou’wester lodge in Seaview, WA
What's better than a camping in a miniature RV with all-inclusive massages, yoga, and acupuncture? All that plus free weekend concerts from the likes of Nick Jaina and Y La Bamba, onsite at this fabulously eccentric hodgepodge of a resort on the Long Beach peninsula.
WANT THAT URBAN-QUIRKY PORTLAND EXPERIENCE?
TRY: Caravan-The Tiny House Hotel in NE Portland, OR
You or your visiting guest can stacay in tiny style right in town—at one of six microhomes smack dab in the middle of the Alberta Arts District. Twinkly lights unite this rollicking "hotel," which also hosts Wednesday evening concerts.
