I grew up in Arizona and made quite a few visits to the Grand Canyon, both the North Rim and the South Rim. I never did more than a short hike or a couple of miles into the main canyon. We backpacked and spent several days in the Havasupai Canyon, a side canyon of the Grand Canyon.
This photo is of a cabin at Phantom Ranch. Located 4,600 feet below than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is a community of eleven tiny houses designed by architect Mary E. J. Colter back in 1922. This is Phantom Ranch – the only lodging facility below the rim of the Grand Canyon.
The only access is by mule train, foot, or rafting down the Colorado River. It must be a welcoming site along the Bright Angel Creek with its bunks, fresh bedding, towels, and toilets. Showers are located centrally.
This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape of the the Wheelhaus Wedge set in the beautiful state of Wyoming. This is one one of my favorite park model homes and I hope to one day visit and stay in one of these. Actually the model I personally like the best is the Caboose style. If you are interested in seeing more of Wheelhaus designs click here.
These park models are located in a high end resort called Fireside Resort at the Jackson Hole Campground. Here is what they say about themselves.
Jackson Hole’s first nature lodging experience and only luxury summer and ski cabin resort. Each of our 19 one-bedroom Fireside Cabins represent a combination of both rustic and modern design. Located just minutes from the slopes and Grand Teton National Park, Firside Resort is the perfect choice for all seasons. Jackson Hole luxury lodging that is truly one of a kind.
This is the kind of understated quality, simplified luxury and access to nature that you can relax yourself into. Warm and inviting. Rustic and simple. Cozy up in one of our many Jackson Hole cabin rentals. Your own private campfire is just a match away. The s’mores are on us!
No this is not an ad, I’m just really impressed and I love the photo of the tiny home/cabin in a landscape. Do you have a favorite place in a beautiful setting? Please send your photo to me at tinyhouseblog (at) gmail.com. Thank you!
James Stuart sent me this weeks Tiny House in a Landscape. It is a photo taken by Alessandro Puccinelli who in 2011 decided to buy an old but super well constructed motorhome called a Hymer built in 1983. Alessandro decided to move it along the south coast of Portugal to some of his favorite places along the European coast. He wanted to explore more of the country and his photography by living in a small movable space.

I have used Trey Ratcliff’s photography in the Tiny House in a Landscape feature in the past and recently he posted a photo that I wanted to share with you. I’ll let Trey tell you more about it.
My Fortress of Soliture
This is my studio! I walk out here every day from the main house to make art for you.
I don’t know why I’ve never taken a photo of it before now, but this seemed like a good occasion. I’m so in love with my new camera, and I’m super-enamoured since I discovered that my “old” NEX wide-angle lens works so well on the camera! No need to lug around that giant thing any more…
If you watch the video below, you’ll see the view when I walk out the front of my little cottage. If I had filmed this a few weeks before, you’d see those cherry trees blooming over with pink blossoms… it’s my little slice of Japan down here in the Southern Hemisphere. As you can see, the roses are now in full bloom… it’s the middle of summer here. The mornings are very early and the nights stay well lit. It doesn’t even get fully dark until around midnight… it makes for a very long and beautiful day of shooting!
Thanks Trey for your continued appreciation of small spaces. Keep the great photos coming.
