Tiny Houses for Rent: 3 Micro Homes Perfect For a Summer Retreat

Is it vacation time yet?

Intrigued by the tiny house movement but not yet ready to commit to buying or building one of your own? Well, good news: not only are there rentable micro home ventures popping up around the country, but there's also an exciting variety of one-off tiny homes available to book right on rental sites like Airbnb, Homeaway, and, of course, Tiny House Vacations. For starters, check out a few standouts below.

Hamilton, Montana—"Lewis and Clark's Tiny House" (245 square feet, $104/night)

Sited right along a creek with great fishing opportunities, this rustic-chic tiny house comes equipped with all the latest decor trends, including reclaimed wood, a cowhide rug, antler, and chalkboard wall (which hides a full-size Murphy bed.)

Venice, California—"Craftsman Mini-me" (400 square feet, $150/night)

With three "wings" across 400 square feet, this charming guesthouse is on the "grand" end of the tiny home spectrum, but it's an inspiring example of what a small pad could be. The cottage-like home features painted plywood floors, a queen bed, fridge, cooktop, patio, and breezy windows all over.

Austin, Texas—"Hip East Side Tiny Pad" (96 square feet, $125/night)

Created by a University of Texas architecture school graduate and amateur interior designer, this micro dwelling in a East Austin backyard combines all the necessities—lofted bed, window-side seating, kitchenette, bathroom—with charming rustic style. The dwelling also offers biodegradable soaps, shampoos, and more.
