The adorably-named Rosebud, Pearl and Tandem tiny houses are each fully outfitted with sleeping, living and kitchen areas. The caravan is centered around a common area that includes outdoor and covered seating, hammocks, barbeque and a fire pit, for a rustic experience with outdoor fun.

The Tandem model is the largest at 160 square feet, and comfortable sleeps four people. Made from locally-sourced pine walls and featuring cork floors, the interior feels like a cozy cabin, with sleeping areas doubling as pillow-filled window seats. The Rosebud is the medium-sized accommodation—at 120 square feet it sleeps two and has a window seat with storage for keeping travel belongings out of the way. The tiny Pearl is only 90 square feet, and saves on space with a combined toilet and shower, as well as a dinette that converts to a bed, and a sleeping loft for up to three people.

The owners of the Caravan Tiny House Hotel hope to showcase small living, and give their guests a unique experience, inspiring them to live more modestly. They hope to expand to six tiny home hotel rooms in the future.
