Get Lost

The Coolest Tiny Vacation Homes
You Can Rent Right Now

Real talk: there's a lot of reasons why we want to jet out of town right now—the political climate and the actual climate are just two of them. But the idea of holing up somewhere and swapping the news and social media for a good book and a stiff drink sounds idyllic. And if you're as intrigued by tiny houses as much as we are, consider renting one for the weekend. These wee homes give you a break from materialism and a taste of the small life (without having to permanently downsize). From the Pacific coast and the high desert of Texas to the woods of the American south, here are eight options for your travel wish list.

Sechelt, British Columbia

A-Frame Cabin

Probably the largest of the tiny homes, this is just large enough to fit a full size tub. The double-decker cabin is tucked off the coast of Sechelt Inlet, which means you've got beautiful views of the water from your bed or the balcony.

From $85/night

Terlingua, TX
