That is right everyone, we’re back with more Tiny Houses and they’re more plentiful and adorable than ever.

It was clear from our Tiny House Roundup Part 1 that y’all can’t get enough, so we kept searching and came up with even more options for a unique stay.

From Tik Toks to Pinterest boards, tiny houses are everywhere. Their unique style of living and often serene nature settings make for a getaway like no other. They’re not only functional, but stylish too. We’ve rounded up quite the list for part two, including both modern choices and traditional options. Whether you’re looking for serenity in the woods or an upscale downsized stay- we’ve got you covered.

Have you made it this far but you’re still wondering “why stay tiny”? Not only do they make for a seriously unique getaway, but they are often placed in locations that you might not be able to experience otherwise – from the woods to lakes in the WNY area, these Tiny Houses sit in the middle of it all. What tiny houses lack in size, they make up for in individuality, functionality, location and experience. Plus it’s worth nothing that most do not sacrifice amenities as part of their downsized nature and make for an equally comfortable stay.
