We'll never tire of tiny homes — and of planning vacations around these cute accommodations for rent. (Think of these accommodations less as a micro home and more like a big hotel room that just happens to also be a standalone house.) If you end up loving the lifestyle from the rentals, we've also included a couple tiny homes that are looking for the right buyer.
If you looked up the definition for "enchanting," this tiny home should be pictured there. This 100-year-old garden cottage combines modern-day features (herringbone floors, a Jacuzzi) with a certain timeless beauty.

This 165-square-foot tiny home is one town over from Bethany Beach, one of the most beautiful shore towns in Delaware. However, it's just as nice to stay in when the weather isn't too warm. That's because the tiny home was built on the grounds of a serene organic garden and farm.
If you're set on a tiny home vacation, definitely look into Florida. There were almost too many beautiful tiny options to choose from!

Originally built in the late 1800's, this picturesque cottage is a real peach of a home.

We'd say you can live like a local in a cute cottage surrounded by lush plants and flowers, but really, it's more like living in heaven.
