Tiny House In a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is of a Park Model Home located at Windmill Cove in Central California. A park model seems to be ideal as a tiny living space for two people. My wife and I are in the process of downsizing and looking for a new place to live and I wonder if this could be an option.

I love the idea of a park model around 400 square feet with a full size bedroom, a small kitchen and living area. Really all a person needs to live comfortably. Unfortunately as far as I have been able to learn park models are restricted to resorts with full hookups and can’t be put on your own land and lived in full time. So to enjoy one you must purchase or rent one in a resort and pay monthly rent for the land. If you know differently please let me know. Popular park model builders are Cavco, Athens, ideabox, and Wheelhaus.

Tiny House in a Landscape

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!
