Portland’s Tiny Digs Tiny House Hotel

Portland, Ore. was the first city to open up a tiny house hotel with Caravan – The Tiny House Hotel. The city is expanding its options with a new tiny house hotel in the Kerns neighborhood in the NE part of town. Tiny Digs offers six tiny houses to choose from for nightly or extended stays.

Tiny Digs is a new tiny house hotel in Portland’s Kerns neighborhood.

Each of the tiny homes are fully furnished and fully self-contained with toilets, showers, kitchens and complimentary tea and coffee. In addition, two of the tiny homes are pet-friendly (Barn and Gypsy Wagon). The nightly rate for Monday through Thursday is $145 and $155 for Friday and Saturday nights (weekends require a two night minimum stay).

Several tiny houses, including the Beach, are available for nightly stays.


The Beach features cool colors and a spacious loft.


The homes include the Barn with its red color and warm accents, the Modern with a couch suspended above the bed, the Gypsy Wagon with its cubby bed, the Cabin with a loft and log siding, the Beach with clean walls, and the Bamboo with Asian-inspired design.

The Barn is a pet-friendly option for guests.


The interior of the barn features an oxen yoke handrail by the stairs.


The houses can accommodate two to four guests and include beds with luxury linens, kettles and coffee makers, dishes and cutlery and air conditioning. There is parking near the hotel, but you might not need to drive since so many great restaurants are nearby. The hotel also offers free WiFi.

The Modern tiny house is another Tiny Digs option.

The Modern tiny house features a bed with a hanging lounger above it.

The hotel is located in a former car dealership and will eventually have 13 tiny houses surrounding a central hangout space with a fire pit, local art, chairs and lush plants. Local food trucks and live music will be available on certain nights.

The Bamboo tiny house has tansu steps leading to the loft.


The Bamboo’s sink is Asian-inspired with Zen river rocks.


The Gypsy Wagon’s bed is tucked into a cubby hole for cozy sleeping.

What a great way to sample tiny living and all the houses look amazing. Would a guest be able to view each house if they were not occupied?
