Why not spend your next weekend in nature at an off-grid tiny house?

Sometimes on a weekend away, pitching a tent in the dark, rolling over rocks in your sleep and not having access to a steamy, hot shower, aren’t conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation. You still want to spend the weekend off-grid and in the wild, but without giving up the perks of home. Is there any way to have the best of both worlds? 

Enter, tiny houses.

These cute-as-a-button, superiorly space-efficient structures are not just for millennials looking to break into the housing market any way they can. Escaping to a tiny house in the bush is now a popular way to spend a holiday or weekend.

There are hundreds of these beauties popping up in remote lush locations, offering guests the chance to wind down and spend some time in nature, without giving up the little luxuries of home (think percolator and extra pillows). 

There are a bunch of companies renting out tiny houses all over the country. We asked them where you can find their favourite tiny houses, for a wild weekend away.

Unyoked

Unyoked is not a tiny house rental company. They’re not about getting away or escaping regular life. Unyoked want to help you build a life you don’t want to escape from. To reject the conventions of the 9-to-5 that make us all feel we have to be busy all the time. Unyoked want you to gain balance in your life and live the way you really want to, closer to nature. 

They want to help you unyoke.
