This week we are traveling in Oregon so I thought I would share a cabin with a little history from this neck of the woods. This is Zane Grey’s tiny log cabin in the wilderness which is built by the Rogue River in Winkle Bar, Oregon.
This prolific author loved traveling and fishing and even ventured to New Zealand’s Bay of Islands for some big game fishing. He is said to have fished more than three hundred days a year.
This photo is taken by Keith Levy from New Zealand.
This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape feature is a photo taken by Stephen Perry.
Stephen says: I took this picture while staying at Tumalo Lake, near Bend, Oregon. This cabin was on the property and was no longer in use, but with minimal effort, it could be a fine place to live. While the lodge we stayed at was palatial and we wanted for naught, I kept coming back to this cabin wishing this is where we were staying.
Thanks Stephen for sharing this neat cabin and landscape with us.
Right in the heart of the Alberta Arts District in Portland, Oregon sits the first tiny house hotel in the U.S. The custom made houses of the Caravan — The Tiny House Hotel all sit on an urban lot with its own central gathering place that contains a fire pit and BBQ, Adirondack chairs and hammock surrounded by funky, recycled art. Each of the houses are available for nightly stays and contain bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers, electric heat and basic kitchens.
Caravan offers three tiny houses on wheels in their hotel: the Tandem, the Rosebud and the Pearl. The Tandem is 160 square feet and can sleep up to four people. It has a loft bed and a day bed. The Rosebud is 120 square feet with wood interior and exterior. It has a sleeping loft and fits 1-2 people. The Pearl is more modern and at 90 square feet is the smallest of the houses. It is energy efficient and has two lofts as well as a wet bath. The houses rent for $125 a night plus tax. In addition, the Caravan owners are also looking for another finished tiny house to add to the hotel.
Within three blocks of the tiny homes there are cafes, pubs, an organic food co-op, a bike co-op, shops, galleries, tattoo parlors and the local arts walk. Restaurants like the Radio Room, Bye and Bye and the famous Grilled Cheese Grill are just steps away. If you happen to be in Portland on Saturday July 27, the hotel will be having its Grand Opening from 5:00-10:00 p.m. All the houses will be available for viewing and the party will have a band and a bonfire.

This tiny house with a view sits perched above the Millican Valley, about 15 miles east of Bend, Oregon. Although boarded up, it looks to be in good condition and needs just a few finishing touches to make it cozy. To the left is the end of a short fence sheltering the house from view of the ‘main’ dirt road off Highway 20, less than a mile away.
Thank you Kathy Gault from Bend, Oregon for spotting this tiny home and sharing it with us.
