There’s no doubt about it—we’re infinitely intrigued by tiny homes.
Perhaps it’s because they allow us to live in wildly varied locations without spending an arm and a leg. Or perhaps it’s because these petite properties are low maintenance, and have a way smaller footprint.
Whatever the reason that draws you to diminutive dwellings, you’ll love these five we’ve picked out. Some have extraordinary views. One is right on the water, and several come with quite a bit of land.
Not all the price tags are as tiny as the homes—convenience and location have something to do with that. But all come with big impact in a small space. Take a look:
2 Lincoln Ave, Oak Bluffs, MA
Martha’s Vineyard Victorian: On the higher end of the price range, consider the fact that this 354-square-foot Victorian cottage is located in a popular summer vacation spot, within walking distance of the ever popular Montgomery Square, Circuit Avenue shopping and dining, the sandy beaches on the Vineyard, as well as Oak Bluffs Harbor.
The home itself, with its ornate gingerbread details, is cute on the outside and charming on the inside. There’s a sleeping loft with a stained-glass window accessed by a fold-up ladder, and below there’s a living room space that gives way to a mint-colored kitchen with a stackable washer and dryer and a compact storage nook.
Just outside the screen door is a covered porch with a swing and a space for seating. You’ll have your own gardens, and you’ll be surrounded by other vintage Victorian gingerbread cottages. Perfect for summer stays, it’s air-conditioned—and it also has electric heat so you’ll be comfy during the colder months.
388 That Way, Bonners Ferry, ID
Idaho indie: The house itself may be tiny at only 240 square feet, but the lot is huge—10 wooded acres on the North Idaho panhandle, with views of the Selkirk Mountains, near the Canadian border. In this remote locale, the home offers a tiny footprint and luxury living.
The fancy trailer-like abode on wheels comes with self-sustaining amenities, such as propane heat, six solar panels, a composting toilet, a well, and grey water system. And yes, you’ll also have high-speed internet on site.
The home is naturally illuminated by skylights and numerous windows. It features cedar siding and hickory floors, knotty pine walls, and butcher-block counters. For sleeping, there are two relaxing lofts, and below you’ll find a couch that converts into a bed. Out here, “roughing it” is easy.
560 County Road 33, Killen, AL
A sweet home in Alabama: This 220-square-foot house might be little, but get this: On the property you’ll find a storage shed/garage/barn that is easily twice as big, answering the question, “What will you do with all your stuff if you move into a tiny home?”
The long lot it’s built upon measures 2.8 acres, and runs from the street down to Wilson Lake. It includes 115 feet of waterfront, with views and access to sailboats, barges, and paddle boats. It’s located within an hour of Huntsville and two hours of Nashville, TN.
The house has a front porch with spectacular views of the water. Inside, there are plenty of windows to also take full advantage of the vista. The kitchen, living room, and a day bed are all in one room, but there’s a nice private bath. There’s also space to build a larger home, or just keep this pad as a restful, waterfront retreat.
139 Anson Rd, Starks, ME
Maine magic: This adorable A-frame cabin is just 360 square feet. But it sits on a massive 59-acre lot, in the forests of Maine, where you can enjoy all four seasons. The house is equipped with solar power and updated electric.
As yet unfinished, the buyer gets to choose the colors for the interior and siding. Although there are no interior photos, the listing says the home is being completed to suit, with a loft bedroom, kitchenette, living room, and bath with a standup shower.
A beautiful stream runs through the sprawling property, which is reported to offer excellent fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, hiking, and ATV trails. Yet it’s located just minutes from the quaint town of Farmington.
3931 Cousteau Dr SE, Salem, OR
Oh so cool in Oregon: This single-level, 362-square-foot studio feels extra spacious, thanks to high ceilings and an abundance of light that enters via one sliding glass door and windows on all four sides.
It’s decked out with a full kitchen with quartz countertops, a bathroom that includes a stackable washer and dryer, and two closets. It also feels extra fancy underfoot with its luxury vinyl plank flooring. Sleep on a day bed, sleeper couch, or futon.
One of the finer features of this particular dwelling? It’s located in the environmentally-conscious neighborhood known as the Pringle Creek Community, which provides residents with a shared chicken coop and garden, 1.3 miles of trails, an event venue, a park, and a guest cottage to host visitors.
