So cute!!
We loved our stay at this tiny house!! The property was so clean and comfy. They utilized the small space so well and there’s everything you need. We had our dog with us and they even had dog bowls, treats, and toys! The location is amazing and so close to Washington and all the wineries and cute shops! Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect tiny house
Traveled to visit family but wanted my own space to escape to every night. This place was perfect. Just enough space for a lone traveler. Would also work for a couple, although the loft had low ceilings so anybody with any height needs to be careful. Steps to loft are steep and narrow, but the bed/bedding was top notch. I stayed in July and the window AC units easily kept up/kept the place super cool. Really the only issue I had was there were a bunch of flies in the bathroom and kitchen that were annoying. Everything else was perfect and the owners checked in with me by text as soon as I got there and responded very quickly to any question or concern I had.

Everything You Need
This property was one of the best equipped vacation rentals that we have ever stayed in. Everything was new and matching. You can tell the owners took pride in their business and were not just trying to earn a few bucks off a Tiny Home that happened to be on their property. It was very clean and the ultimate test: the mattress was in good shape and comfortable to sleep on. High Marks for Hound Haus. We would definitely return.
