Inspired to go off-grid but not sure it’s the right move for you? Problem solved, thanks to the startup Getaway which allows individuals intrigued by the ‘new’ Millennial dream to explore what it’s really like to live in a tiny home.

The startup was launched by the Millennial Housing Lab and Harvard students Jon Staff and Peter Davis. Inspired to grow the Tiny House movement and offer individuals an easy way to explore off-grid living, the ambitious entrepreneurs launched what will surely develop into a popular business.

Launched just this week, the first tiny home of the startup, named Ovida, is located on a wooded site just two hours north of Boston. The cozy timber cabin sleeps up to four and is fully stocked with food, comfy wool blankets, flannel sleeping bags, marshmallow sticks, and everything else one might desire living in the wilderness.

Said Davis to Fast Company:

“There’s a huge gap between people who post stories to Facebook about living in tiny houses and people who actually live in one. We want to add a rung to the ladder so people can ‘test drive’ a tiny house.”

The startup works by renting the land the houses are built on, and then splits the profit with the landowner.

Staff of Getaway have plans to build at least three student-designed tiny homes in the short-term and at least 12 more over the next year, with some potentially located across the country.

The Ovida tiny house is bookable online and starts at $99/night – a pretty decent price if you get a few adventurous friends to explore off-grid living with you.
