One of last Friday’s links was connected to Airbnb, a cool service that allows travelers to sublet apartments for short or long periods of time. Well, over the weekend I learned about a cool new hotel that books exclusively through Airbnb — and it’s in line with one other thing I’m wild about: tiny houses.
Caravan is the first tiny house hotel in the country, currently featuring three miniature houses built on 100-200 square foot flatbed trailers. The houses are situated around a central community area with a barbecue, a fire pit, and Adirondack chairs, and are easily within walking distance of the awesome shops and restaurants in the Alberta Arts District. They all have bathrooms and tiny kitchens.
While most of us probably wouldn’t fare well with permanent tiny homes, a little tiny home vacation sounds like a lot of fun. A bit like urban glamping, don’t you think?
P.S. A couple who built a tiny home to live and work in — with special space just for their cat.
