Hanging out in a mini house just got easier. Five teeny Tumbleweed dwellings are moving into Mt. Hood Village RV Resort and Caravan: The Tiny House Hotel in Northeast Portland has added a compact Vardo wagon to its collection of bitsy abodes.

In other tiny house travel-related news, guests of the Cabins Creekside in Welches were visited by a tiny house film crew and Dee Williams, the Pacific Northwest’s czarina of simplified living, will raise money for charity by leaving behind her 84-square-foot house on wheels to walk the Pacific Crest Trail.

Cabins are now cozier. Mount Hood visitors can book a stay in Mt. Hood Village RV Resort’s Tiny House Village, a cluster of five tiny houses, all built with cedar plank siding by Tumbleweed Tiny House Co., a home manufacturer often featured on HGTV and FYI.

There will be a free tour of the custom, bijou dwellings, each with a full bathroom and kitchen, the weekend of May 20, and guests can check in starting on May 27, Memorial Day weekend, says Annie Colletti of the resort’s management firm Equity LifeStyle Properties.

The homes on wheels range in size from 175 to 261 square feet, and could easily slide into a parking spot with space to spare for a lawn chair or two.
