Sometimes, vacations are more trouble than they’re worth. You spend a lot of money, travel far, and leave stressed.
Getaway, a hospitality startup launched in the Harvard Innovation Lab, shakes up that routine by offering tiny houses for rent. Relaxing in the forest reins in the temptation to take day trips or shop, leaving guests to unwind. It’s like camping, but with the creature comforts of home.
The company maintains three 160-square-foot tiny houses in the Massachusetts woods, which guests can book for $99 a night. The location of the homes is is top-secret, but all are within a two-hour drive of Boston.
Tech Insider spoke with the Jon Staff, the CEO of Getaway and a Harvard Business School student, to see why tiny houses might be the future of tourism.
