Get Away: Treehouses, Teepees and Tiny Homes in Virginia

Need an escape? Try one of these charming little hideaways.

The growing popularity of tiny homes is anything but. At under 800 square feet, these microstructures might seem like a serious sacrifice of space, but their owners have come up with thoughtful, innovative designs that are full of substance—and they’re right here in Virginia. Tiny home rentals offer a refreshing taste of simplicity, so pack light and treat yourself to a weekend in the woods or a beachside bungalow.

Getaway House

Run away to a 200-square-foot wooden oasis where no one will be able to find you—because Getaway House’s exact address is kept a secret until you book. Settled about two hours from the D.C. metro area in Stanardsville, Virginia is a community of tiny houses spread across 80 acres of forest; they’re far enough apart that you’ll get the privacy you need to wind down, but just close enough to temper any apprehensions about isolation. Inside you’ll find one or two queen-sized beds (depending on the cabin you choose), a kitchenette with a gas stove and a small table. Book this handcrafted hideaway for up to four people, and watch your head!
