Take a wee vacation in a tiny house

Sarah Sole

We didn’t do much traveling in 2020, Columbus, so you’ll have to forgive us for having a bit of cabin fever. 

But as we’re preparing to ring in 2021, we’ve made our first resolution for the new year: Try a tiny house. 

Exchanging one’s current abode for a smaller one may seem counterintuitive, but the opportunity provides novelty as well as an impressive backdrop of natural beauty. 

Here are three options for you to consider as you plan your next weekend getaway: 


The Box Hop

The Box Hop began with couple Seth and Emily Britt’s goal to carve a space out in Hocking Hills for their family to stay. You get to choose from two tiny houses: The “OG” Box Hop, which has an eight-seater dinner table, and the “BoHo” Box Hop, which can sleep up to four. The former was built in 2018, while the latter was finished exactly a year ago. 

The goal, said Seth Britt, is to provide an experience and space for memories. 

“I think it’s unique. It’s different,” he said. 

The Lily Pad

Creative Cabins’ shipping container option within Hocking Hills features a cozy bedroom, a private bathroom, a full kitchen, and a living room area. Outside amenities include a swing bed, a hot tub for two, and a gas grill. 

Riverside Hideout

If you’re up for a drive that’s a bit longer, consider Riverside Hideout, a Dover shipping container home in the woods near the Tuscarawas River. Situated near bike trails and across the street from the Dover Dam, the space features a mini kitchen, private bed and bath, and a living room. The home is also a short drive from wineries, breweries, and historic downtowns. 

They may be small, but these options pack a whole lot of ambiance. We’re ready for some small-scale adventures for this coming year.
