Take Your Next Vacation at One of These Tiny Hotels ...


I love the idea of tiny houses, even though I know I could never live with one, so I'm nurturing an obsession with the next best thing: tiny hotels.

They allow you to stay in places you might not otherwise get to experience, they can sometimes – sometimes – be a bit cheaper.


It depends on the location, really.

You'll often find the price is worth it, however, because what these hotels lack in size, they more than make up for in design, aesthetic, and location.

Staying at this hotel, it's been said, is like staying right in the center of an incredible collection of art.

In fact, some of the most famous people in the design and art worlds completely reimagined the Iniala house in 2013 and expanded it, so every piece of furniture is its own work of art.

The Rolling Huts in Winthrop, Washington, are modern and minimal, the creations of Tom Kundig.

Though the shapes and architecture are modern, the overall feel is rustic.

This is where you go when you really want to glamp.
