6 Reasons To Escape To A Tiny House This Summer


Whether you’re looking to book a staycation this summer, or just need to escape the press of the city, a stay in a tiny house is just what you need.  If you’ve never seen a tiny house, the name says it all! It is literally a small house that has everything you need to sleep, eat, and relax in comfort while experiencing nature.  One outstanding tiny house option near Boston is the Tuxbury Tiny House Village in South Hampton, NH.  After just a one hour drive, you can be in the gorgeous woods of New Hampshire having a glamping adventure, without worrying about camping equipment!  Excited? Here are five reasons to book your tiny house immediately!

Easy and Convenient

Staying at a tiny house makes traveling and enjoying your surroundings easy.  There is a secure place to put all your things without the hassle of setting up a tent and campsite.


Surrounded by Natural Beauty

A tiny house in the woods is like having your own private summer country cottage retreat.  Surrounded by amazing views and animals, you’ll feel like you’re miles away from daily worries and be able to fully relax.

A Regular Bathroom

If tent camping is off putting because of bathroom concerns, never fear!  With a tiny house you get a bathroom with a flushing toilet and a shower. No composting toilets, no digging holes, hot and cold water at the turn of a knob.  This takes the anxiety and guesswork out of camping, and makes it so much easier to enjoy yourself.


Cook Your Own Meals

As savvy travelers, we know that saving money on vacation starts with making your own meals.  While any given hotel room won’t guarantee you a kitchen or even a refrigerator, a tiny house includes a small fridge, range, and coffee maker.  These simple conveniences make it easy to save money while having a great time in your tiny house. Coffee on the porch, anyone?

Close To A Variety of Activities

While staying in Tuxbury Tiny House Village, you can do everything or nothing depending on how you feel.  On the property you can kayak or canoe, roast marshmallows, swim, or take in the lovely grounds. If you want to explore a new town, Amesbury is a short drive away and offers a quaint New England downtown, cute local stores, great food, and tons of summer activities including a summer concert series.  You’ve seen them at the Boston Public Market, and now you can experience Cider Hill Farm in person! Enjoy cider tasting, donuts, and many family friendly activities throughout the summer.

Tuxbury Tiny House Village is the perfect way to escape the city for a long weekend, and unplug from daily life.  Even though you’ll have all the comforts of home at your fingertips, you’ll still definitely need to protect your skin and eyes!  Check out our Adventure Travel Essentials list to inspire your tiny house glamping trip.
