Tiny Houses – A Red Caboose

Tiny houses are all the rage including this red Caboose from CARAVAN the Tiny House Hotel in Portland.  In fact, it is “the first tiny house hotel in the United States”, how about that! Oh what fun it would be to stay in a tiny red caboose.

These tiny houses at CARAVAN are in a popular “funky Alberta Arts District.” See, there is more than one tiny house hotel at Caravan.

Currently, they have four tiny houses to pick from.  The Caboose, Skyline, The Rosebud and The Tandem. They are built on trailers with wheels which if you think about it is not an entirely new idea, but definitely unique.  I’ve showed you tiny houses including a whimsical floating tiny houseboat, Tumbleweed tiny houses, and a cottage from tiny houses listings.  I am happy to add The Caboose from Caravan the tiny house hotel to the list today.  Let’s look at the choo-choo.

Loft bed area in The CabooseThe loft in The Caboose with a queen-sized mattress is a good spot for Mom and Dad or couples.  Caravan says Caboose sleeps 1-4 people and is a good option for families.

Caboose kitchen and dining

Kitchen and dining table.  Description details include:  “Beneath the sleeping loft are two twin sized, cozy bunk beds with custom-made quilts and comfy pillows and a sitting area for 4-5 people.

The custom-built benches, cabinets, ladder, fold out dining table, cobbled wood floor (amazing), curved roof elements, and copper shelving, make the interior of the Caboose pop with detail.

Within its’ 140 sq ft., The Caboose holds an impressive amount of richly designed, unique and artistic features, including the builder’s signature Mason jar lighting and copper piping.”

The owners, founders, and partners of Tiny House Hotel are Deb Delman and Kol Peterson.  On their website, they state: “Starting Caravan- The Tiny House Hotel, as a business was a gamble and a challenge, because this business hadn’t been done before, which made it all the more intriguing for us.”  I like that they went for their dream and made it come true.

If you are in the Portland area or planning a visit, Book The Caboose on their reservation system Airbnb.

    • Gosh yes, you need to have space for the little ones, for sure. A Holiday for a few days here would be so epic to remember but with kids they would need to be able to go outside a lot!

  1. I recently read a magazine article that featured some couples that bought this size residence for their permanent home! They said they had to downsize their possessions — due to limited storage, they only allowed themselves 100 items each. Might be fun for a weekend get-away!
