*Nice dogs are always welcome at Rusty's Retreat :)

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to local dog rescues. Rusty's Retreat is named for one of our mutts that was found in a dumpster at a few weeks old and just 1.5 lbs. Rusty soon adopted the house as his executive dog house- perfect climate-controlled space to watch birds/squirrels. Since, he's graciously agreed to allow nice guests to enjoy the space in exchange for helping his buddies currently living in less gracious conditions.

The space
Tucked away less than a mile from VA's Brew Ridge Trail, Rusty's Retreat is a brand-new, self-contained luxury tiny home hand built by the only RIVA-certified tiny home builder in the nation.

Although less than 175 sqft, the plethora of windows and natural light creates a sense of sleeping outdoors.

An immaculate, brand-new luxury tiny home hand-crafted by premier builder Escape Homes, While staying at Rusty's Retreat, you'll be surprised at the precise attention to detail in the design and the sheer amount of amenities packed into this cool little spot. Enjoy!

Guest access
You'll have full use of the tiny home as well as the outdoor space that surrounds it.

Other things to note
Although separate, Rusty's Retreat shares a property with the well-known AirBnB property Boogie Nights Manor. Parking and access points are separate for the two listings, but it's possible that sounds may travel between the respective outdoors spaces :)

Everything in this tiny space is perfect. It's nothing like an RV. The air handler system is occasionally too perfect... although it amazingly cools off the 100 degree days, the brand new AC blower unit can put out a noticeable level of "white noise" on the hottest days (sort of like a loud ceiling fan). Most days, we just open the 2 large window for cross breeze, but the hot humid days generally require use of the AC system.

Stationary nomad, punologist, and rural Virginia's "Kona Shave Ice" guy. Still in total denial of both being a Type A personality (no, I swear I'm laid back). Single dad of the world's best kid and the 3 of the most neurotic rescue dogs in the universe. Lover of all things Hawaii. Kauai things earn extra, extra credit of course. Try to make trips back annually when real life doesn't prevent it. Stoked to be able to offer Boogie Nights Manor- built by a prolific inventor and THE guy who invented the hotdog conveyer machine- to the first time to the public. It's such a cool house and it continues to evolve. The two tiny houses- The Big Tiny House and Rusty's Retreat- have been more popular than I ever could have imagined. AirBnB has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and the honor to provide thousands of folks a spot to rest their heads each evening has been equal parts fun and rewarding.
