Tiny Houses – Big Love
As much as many of us would love to own a tiny home, life and stuff sometimes gets in the way. But have no fear, if you long for the simple life that comes with owning a tiny home, you can still enjoy the experience in one of the many Tiny Home and cabins that are available to book right here in the Cypress Hills Destination Area (CHDA)!
Located only 10km from Medicine Hat, this private tiny home getaway offers you a chance to unwind and declutter your mind and your space with the soothing soft tones and elegant decor that owner Dawna Motz has devised. Perfect for a romantic weekend for two, or a sublime getaway for one, while you catch up on your reading, and leave the mess and the kids at home!

Cabins at Elkwater Lake Lodge – http://www.visitcypresshills.ca/accommodations/hotels-motels/elkwater-lake-lodge-resort/
At only 468 sq ft, the rustic cabins at the Elkwater Lake Lodge can still accommodate up to six people – the only downside is they are only available from May 15 to September 19th. Each has two bedrooms (each bedroom has one double bed), while the living area boasts a pull-out sofa bed, full size fridge, stove and microwave and dining area. They also come with a shared BBQ, picnic and fireside area. And just in case you worry you’re getting too rustic…they also come with satellite TV.
Tiny but functional with free wifi and within walking distance to downtown Maple Creek. Side-by-side, these two one-bedrom units offer a comfy queen size bed and a sofa-bed in the living room, with all the comforts of home and then some. Located on the Willowbend Campground, you also have access to their firepits. So, it’s like camping, but better.
A cozy little house all to yourself, with a backyard, deck and pet-friendly! Even Fido will love it! Bigger than it looks this little cottage hosts 3 bedrooms, one bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with brand new appliances and a full laundry room. It also has an outdoor grill to go with that backyard!
A complete and cozy kitchen awaits!
Ghostown Blues Bed & Breakfast – http://www.visitcypresshills.ca/accommodations/bed-and-breakfasts/ghostown-blues-bed-breakfast/
It doesn’t get tinier than these little pioneer cabins picked up off the prairies, lovingly restored, and beautifully decorated with antiques and luxurious bedding. Full disclosure – they don’t have bathrooms or running water in them (did we mention they’re tiny?), but no worries, beautifully appointed bathrooms are only steps away. Choose from a number of different styles, and even those with two stories for two couples or a family with kids, and if you want to go even tinier – you always have the option of staying in a funky truck, a thresherman’s wagon, or even a covered sheep wagon! Now THOSE are tiny!
