I can’t say I’d ever heard of the tiny house movement until I was scrolling through Airbnb for a cabin to stay in in Tennessee and stumbled upon a listing titled ‘Wandering Gypsy Tiny House’. Turns out it was over the state line in Georgia and I was able to put some of my Airbnb credit towards the cost and ended up bagging it for only $40 (you can get a discount off your first booking when you sign up with this link). It fit all our requirements; outdoor hot tub, fire pit and from the reviews it seemed the tiny house also came with a bottle of wine. Sold!
The tiny house is built almost exclusively from recycled materials from Alabama and Georgia and really lived up to its name…Somehow, the clever design managed to squeeze in everything you could need for a night or two away for a couple of people. The double mattress is just above the kitchen and bathroom (the shower was a wooden tub!). There were a few more tiny houses on the lot too, which we managed to take a cheeky peek inside…. Ours was definitely the tiniest, but totally adorable and cosy….
…no cabin fever though, the hosts left ingredients for s’mores on the fire and that bottle of red was the perfect companion for the open air hot tub up the hill. Now to find some episodes of Tiny Houses on HGTV or Channel 4. I’m not sure I’d want to live in one, but it made a nice change from a generic hotel room and I’ll be keeping an eye out for more like this. Any recommendations?
