Tiny Living

On this episode of ‘Coolest Places to Stay’, renovation expert Katie Herbert explores the fascination with Tiny Living.  It’s a massively popular trend, and short-term rentals give travellers the chance to try it out for themselves, without the burden of buying.  Every tiny home is unique, using homemade and handmade touches to get guests through the door. Katie discovers an off grid, secluded cabin, with a private pond; a tiny lux rental created from a converted downtown garage; and the quintessential tiny home – a wooden house on wheels, on a ranch. 

Katie Herbert visits a tiny family home on wheels that was completely hand-crafted by the owners; a sweet rustic mini-cabin with twinkle and a view; and a garage that has been transformed into so much more.
