Tuxbury Tiny House Village – Opening Spring 2018

Introducing… Henry, Clara, Emerson, Murphy, and Riley, the newest additions to Petite Retreats! These five tiny houses live at the Tuxbury Pond RV Resort. Wickedly clever and full of character, these tiny houses all have their own personalities, catering to every kind of adventurer who walks through their doors.

Emerson
Emerson

Emerson

“A modern innovator, Emerson is a creator in every sense of the word. As a child, he gravitated toward activities that involved building and learning how things worked. Truth be told, not much has changed. He’s a professional tinkerer and hasn’t met something he couldn’t fix. In his free time, he enjoys fixing up vintage appliances and selling them in his shop and online store. His goal each day is to make what’s old new again!”

Murphy
Murphy

Murphy

“Murphy makes the ultimate buddy. He remains by his friends’ side through thick and thin and consistently puts others before himself. His true passion in life is anything and everything to do with sports, and he hosts the best viewing parties. Because of this, he is the best person to have on your sports themed trivia team. Murphy is someone you can grab a drink and chat with for hours, preferably while sailing or fishing.”

 

Riley
Riley

Riley

“A modern day Rosie the Riveter, Riley is a go-getter in all aspects of life. She stands up for what she believes in and does so gracefully. She is involved in local politics and specializes in civil rights. To unwind, she travels and explores whatever city she finds herself in. She prefers to go off the beaten path and always finds the extraordinary in the ordinary. A lesser-known fact about Riley is that she loves karaoke and does a killer rendition of ‘Born in the U.S.A.’”

Henry & Clara
Henry & Clara

Henry

“Henry is an inventor with a vision ahead of his time. While he’s a true industrialist, he has his roots in engineering. Henry loves racing, and his interest in cars is one of a kind. In time, he hopes to combine his love for engineering with his love of racing. However, with all of the races he’s attended, he still believes the greatest day of his life is the one he married his wife, Clara.”

Clara

“Clara is the friend you can count on to cheer you on as you chase your wildest ambitions. She is never too far from her partner in crime, her husband, Henry, as they lived down the road from each other and have been married for years. After growing up on a farm, Clara became a wonderful cook and gardener. When she’s not spending time with her family or tending to the garden, Clara is dancing through life, taking on one adventure after another.”

Clever Packing Tips for a Tiny Vacation

Clever Packing Tips for a Tiny Vacation
Clever Packing Tips for a Tiny Vacation

Somewhere, someone wise probably said that too much stuff ruins vacations. Well, we couldn’t say exactly who that person is but we’re sure that someone said it at some point. The notion probably originated from standing in a messy hotel room surrounded by too many unworn outfits and souvenirs spilling out from an overstuffed suitcase. Now that Petite Retreats offers a variety of tiny unique accommodations, some of you may be thinking about how to downsize your vacation in other ways. Check out some space saving tips that will help you cut down on the stuff and experience more from your vacation!

Roll up your clothes to save space.

Roll your clothes up into little clothing burritos and stack them inside zip lock bags. Close the lock almost all the way to the end and either suck out or push out the excess air, essentially vacuum sealing your clothing. This will allow you to bring more outfits and take up less space in your luggage.

Bring one less pair of shoes than you think you need.

How many pairs of shoes do you really need to bring? Unless you have a different kind of event every single day – like, a wedding one day and then a climb up a mountain the next – you probably will only need one to three pairs of shoes to get you through your tiny vacation. Sneakers, a pair of flip flops, and hiking boots should suffice. Wear your biggest and bulkiest shoes while you’re traveling. Bring extra zip lock bags to keep everything clean.

Download whatever you can to your smartphone, tablet, or e-reader before you leave.

Petite Retreats is all about getting away from the hustle and bustle of city-life and retreating to beautiful forests and sandy beaches to recharge and immerse yourself in nature. There will be times when you’ll want to listen to your favorite podcast or fall asleep reading a good book. Instead of lugging a whole bunch of books and magazines or burning CDs to bring along, download everything you’ll want for entertainment onto one smart device. This way you can curl up with a good book and leave some space in your luggage for other essentials.

All the travel-sized-things

Don’t get tied up using full-sized shower stuff. Fill up travel sized 3 oz. bottles of your favorite shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Snag a packet of face and body wipes to easily freshen up on-the-go without adding more bulk to your bag. Even if your trip doesn’t require a full TSA security check, their guidelines for liquids will help you from overfilling your luggage.

Bring only what you need.

The Petite Retreat Tiny House Villages are fully stocked with all the things you would need in your own home like pots, pans, linens, flatware, and even fixings for coffee and tea. Relax knowing that all you really need to vacation tiny is your suitcase of clothes, shoes, and a really good book (on your e-reader or smartphone, of course!)

Pick lightweight clothing that is also functional.

Merino wool clothes are lightweight, keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and don’t wrinkle. Look for this fabric if and when you’re shopping for any additional clothes that you may need for your getaway.
