Taking the concept of the classic New England beach/lake cottage hotel to its logical, hipster conclusion, a couple in Portland, Oregon's Alberta Art District have opened Caravan -- The Tiny House Hotel: six single-room houses situated on a campsite-like city block.
Owned and maintained by Kol and Deb Delman, the individually themed, 100-200sqft RV houses are all built on trailers and have zany names like Roly Poly, Kangablue, The Tandem, and The Caboose.
Despite their miniature size, each tiny room features a kitchen with hot plate, a workable toilet and shower, and electric heat, so guests won't have to rely on the outdoor fire pit as their only source of warmth. And speaking of the fire pit, one's in the outside common area, along with a hammock and some quirky furniture. There are also plenty of local bars nearby.
