‘Getaway’ To Your Home Away From Home

View all 19 Photos

The tiny house movement has hit critical mass. People around the country are infatuated with the idea of casting aside the tenants of ‘bigger is better’ for a life that revolves around simplicity, and cultivating a richer, more experience-driven habitation. But, as romantic an idea as tiny living is, going from a generous two bedroom apartment with a kitchen island and a view to using every square inch of interior space to perform the basic functions of living is a hard pill to swallow for tiny house newcomers. That’s where Getaway comes in. It’s a service catered towards finding tiny house enthusiasts with custom built cabin rentals for couples dedicated to the idea that less is more. It offers people a taste of what life is like with a more modest amount of living space without forcing them to commit to a lifestyle they might be carrying distinct reservations about.

Getaway is a Brooklyn based startup who are devoted to spreading their minimalist approach to lifestyle design. Their current operation offers tiny home vacation rentals outside of New York, Boston, and Washington DC. They’ve established a mission to find other major metropolitan areas around the United States and provide small, thoughtfully designed and constructed cabins to help bring people away from their busy city lives to experience nature.

The cabins themselves are meant to be occupied with a feathery touch. They are a conduit for tranquility, meditation, and self-reflection. The architecture is aimed at promoting these aspects of the human condition, presenting clean spaces, natural views, and material choices that respond appropriately to the surrounding landscape.
Getaway builds tiny houses in the woods. It says so right there on the front page of their website. More than that, though, they give people sanctuary and retreat from the clutter and chaos of everyday city life.
If you’re looking to book one of the Getaway cabins for your next nature-bound adventure, you’d better plan ahead. The cabins and the cabin rentals for couples are extremely popular, a telling reveal of just how big tiny housing is becoming.
