This bold, tiny retreat in Ontario measures just 100 square feet
When you want to keep a building footprint small, sometimes the only way to go is up. The Red Tower tiny retreat is a 10 foot by 10 foot tower that feels much larger than its tight square footage thanks to a vertical design and its vast surroundings of remote wilderness in Ontario. With a spacious outdoor deck to enjoy, the glamping retreat is the perfect location for anyone looking to enjoy all that nature has to offer.
The bright red tiny house is located in the town of Castleton, less than an hour from Belleville, Ontario. Surrounded by lush forest, the tower sits on a small hill with a large outdoor deck, which serves as the main living area for the retreat.
Inside the tower, the living space is compact but spacious enough for two guests. The interior is lined with wooden flooring and walls, giving the space a warm, cabin feel. On the first floor, guests can take advantage of a comfortable lounge space as well as a kitchenette, which comes equipped with a toaster oven, a hotplate and a microwave.
The bedroom is found on the second-level sleeping loft. Guests will find a double bed with linens provided. For personal care, there is an outhouse with an outdoor sink and open-air shower facility just a short walk away from the tiny home.
The rustic retreat is suited for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life. The dual lounge chairs on the extended front deck are just the place to cuddle up with a good book. There is also a small dinette set for dining al fresco and a fun hightop bar area for after-dinner toddies.
The Castleton area is known for its picturesque landscapes of rolling hills and forests, which offer a lot in terms of active travel. In the area around the tiny tower, there are plenty of trails for hiking and biking. The location is just a 25 minute drive to Lake Ontario, where guests to the tiny home retreat can explore the marsh, soak up some sun at the beach and enjoy long walks in the natural meadows.
