Tiny Getaway Houses with Jon Staff

There is nothing tiny about the vision of Jon Staff, our guest this week. And, “impressive” does not even begin to describe what he and his team have created for their guests. If you’re lucky enough to live in Boston or New York, you have no doubt heard about this amazing new way to unplug and unwind in one of Getaway’s tiny houses. So many of us live such harried lives. So many of us get caught up in our day to day lives and don’t make downtime a priority. We know we should, but there are so many details to work out; which is oddly ironic, isn’t it? And while many people in the tiny house movement don’t need convincing of the value of simplicity, many do. Picture this. It’s been months since you did something just for you. So you decide to splurge and book a weekend in a tiny house in the mountains. You don’t even know where it is, really. But on Friday morning you receive an email with a song list. You listen and unwind as you find your way to your weekend oasis. Once you arrive, you find everything you need to do nothing; even the firewood and some groceries. There is no wifi, no TV, and a lockbox for your cell phone. We don’t know about you but the podcast crew can’t wait till Getaway “gets” to the West Coast and we too can live this tiny weekend-off-the-beaten-path dream. Thank you, Getaway House, for making downtime more accessible and making us think twice about spending another weekend tethered to our cell phones.

What an amazing idea! May have to adopt a similar idea here in the UK. Small and beautiful.
