Getaway Catskills is another tiny house resort that can be found in the state of New York. This actually makes a lot of sense since a tiny house really isn’t any smaller than your average New York City apartment, so locals gain a lot of outdoor space without sacrificing any indoor space.
There are two different tiny houses to choose from at this resort. The first type is a cabin built for two people, and there are ten of them available for rent. It features a queen-size bed at ground level so you won’t have to deal with climbing into a loft.
The second tiny house is built for four people, and it has a set of queen bunks with the upper bunk built as a loft rather than a traditional bunk. This means you aren’t going to feel the people moving above and beneath you like you would in a traditional bunk bed.
Within the resort, you’ll find lots of outdoor space as the 12 tiny homes are spread out over a total of 20 acres. Located near the resort, you’ll find ample hiking trails, waterfalls, and arboretums to explore.
You can also find some amazing tiny home festivals in this area while you are vacationing and living the tiny life!
