You Can Now Actually Rent Tiny Homes for Vacation
From HGTV to Zillow, South Carolina to San Diego, the tiny-home trend is sweeping the nation -- and, now, the hospitality industry. Welcome to Canoe Bay ESCAPE Village, opened December 2017 in Wisconsin.
Here’s why you should visit the Midwest’s first large-scale tiny-home vacation community:
You'll become one with nature. The village is set on more than 100 acres of Wisconsin lakes, wetlands and wilderness, with 90% left untouched.
To create the ultimate luxury glamping experience, tiny homes are fully immersed in the unspoiled natural landscape surrounding Mallard Lake in Canoe Bay, so you can leave your sleep sound machines at home.
All tiny homes within the Canoe Bay ESCAPE Village are available for purchase. Tiny-home owners then have the option of enrolling in the community’s rental program, which facilitates hotel-style overnight stays.
You can choose from 12 different designs of tiny houses for sale and rental, including three XL models as well as deluxe one- and two-bedroom options.
Square footage ranges from the 136-foot Vista GO to the 400-square-foot premium Park Models.
Depending on which tiny home you stay in, the design may feature stainless steel appliances, convertible spaces and/or sleeping lofts.
All models feature a modern yet minimalistic design aesthetic, indoor bathrooms and large windows.
Three models -- the Tradition and both Park Models -- are equipped with porches. Picture morning coffee here:
For owners, units are mobile and can easily be used as a (much more luxurious) substitute for an RV or converted van.
