Come stay in a real tiny house with a super comfy memory foam full-size bed, sitting/dining area, and its own kitchenette. Think of this as the ultimate "glamping" experience. A private bathroom with an oversized shower is just a few steps across your private brick patio in the adjacent studio building. Great for couples or solo adventurers.
Welcome to our new addition to Still Point, perfect for one or two people. With its comfy memory foam full-size bed, sitting/dining area, and kitchenette, you will have everything you need in a cozy, yet surprisingly open space. Just steps across your brick patio is our studio which houses a private full bathroom.
Actually inspired by our 1963 Friendship Vacationaire vintage canned ham travel trailer, we were able to design and build in only 108 square feet everything you need for luxury comfort in a tiny space: a place to sleep, to sit, to eat, and to prepare meals.
As a three seasons building, during non-freezing weather it has running cold water to a small double sink. The kitchenette also features a refrigerator, a high quality double burner hot plate, fresh well water for drinking, stainless steel counter, cookware, utensils, French press coffee maker, and charming vintage style dinnerware.
The kitchen makes it easy to prepare simple meals, while just steps away onto the main house deck is a gas grill. We ask that you not cook potentially messy, smelly, or splattering foods like bacon or fish in such a small space (…lessons we learned the hard way in our camper).
For your comfort in the building there are both a space heater and air conditioner to moderate temperature extremes. There is also a quiet variable speed exhaust fan to pull fresh cool air through open windows. The bedside lighting and chandelier are fully dimmable, and the patio side windows have privacy shades.
Although there is limited WiFi (no streaming because we have monthly data limits on our satellite Internet service), you will appreciate the built-in USB chargers for cell phones and other devices.
Even though it may be tiny, there is hanging space on clothes hooks, cubbies to store dry food and personal items, and room under the bed for a suitcase or bag. There is also plenty of space in the large studio bathroom for some of your personal items.
You will enjoy the nearby flower and veggie gardens and lounging on your own patio away from the larger deck near the main house. Or, you may want to join us or other guests in those areas, including the campfire circle. Certainly, you will want to experience the outdoor shower near the upper gardens and deck (…an often praised feature by our guests).
The view beyond the south windows is the head of one of our two small trails, so nice to explore for their peacefulness. Whether springtime for the migrating birds and flowering redbud trees, early summer for the blackcap wild raspberries, the late summer wildflowers, or the autumn colors, there is always natural beauty just outside your door.
You will notice our Tiny House pricing is considerably more affordable than our main rental at Still Point Country Retreat. And, especially if you rent it as a package with friends or family, there are discount advantages. If you rent the main apartment and want to add the Tiny House, we will discount the latter by 25%. And, if you want to rent the main apartment, but prefer to have exclusive privacy, we will block the Tiny House from other renters if you pay us 50% of its rental fee. You need to request these discounts in your inquiry and we will return with a "special offer" reflecting those discounts.
You may also find us by searching the Web with our name, Still Point Country Retreat. Basically the same info, but we think prettier. We want to book exclusively through Airbnb because there is insurance that protects both parties. There is a link on our website directly to this listing.
