Canoe Bay: Eco-Friendly Tiny Cabin
Getting away from it all once in a while is something that we all look forward to, but a getaway that can be delivered to wherever you are? That’s just brilliant. ESCAPE is handcrafted from Wisconsin pine and designed by the folks at Canoe Bay. It isn’t a mobile home or an RV, exactly – it’s a beautiful, relaxing cabin that can be driven to and dropped off at your chosen destination.
Clocking in at just 400 square feet, the space in the cabin is used wisely to maximize the amount of functionality in the small area. Vaulted ceilings go a long way toward making the cabin feel much larger.
The ESCAPE is environmentally friendly and energy-conscious. It’s made of sustainable materials and the interior features Energy Star appliances and LED lighting.
Fully assembled when it gets to you, all you have to do hook the Escape up to utilities and get ready for some serious relaxation. A screened-in porch with a heated bed let you relax close to nature, even when the nights get a bit chilly. A fireplace lets you warm up the place even more.
Although the ESCAPE can be moved and set up anywhere, it’s not exactly a mobile home. It has to be moved like a manufactured home and is meant to stay in one place for long periods of time. That means you just have to find your perfect vacation spot and set down the ESCAPE, then get ready for years of simple but luxurious enjoyment.
Cabins this remarkable don’t come cheap, but at a starting price of $79,000 it’s cheaper than a high-end RV. And perhaps the added value of not having to find a spot with electricity and plumbing to park your RV is worth the cost.
Update: This Escape cabin model is now part of an entire Canoe Bay village:
“For the past 25 years, Canoe Bay has been rated one of the best getaways in America thanks in part to it’s unique natural setting and beautiful architecture. Many adventuresome Canoe Bay guests discovered that there were hundreds of acres to explore at Canoe Bay including long trails over rolling terrain that led to hidden glacially carved lakes and wetlands spread over a vast forest. These Hidden Lakes are the setting for the Canoe Bay ESCAPE Village, the first full scale ESCAPE Tiny Home vacation village in the Midwest. ESCAPE units have already been used for years at Canoe Bay and guests have overwhelmingly loved them. One of the ESCAPE units at Canoe Bay was featured on a national Tiny House program and pictures of the units have been featured in publications world wide…the Tiny Home phenomena is everywhere. Now you can be a part of the revolution sweeping the world by visiting and even buying your own Tiny Home. Best of all, it can pay for itself.”
