The chill in the air has us dreaming of brisk walks through the woods and breath-taking Blue Ridge views, so we're planning a trip to a tiny house in the North Carolina mountains! Tiny houses are cute and cozy, the perfect minimalist space for a romantic getaway or a restorative solo vacation with a side of nature therapy. We've found 4 unique rentals that we'd love to visit, with nearby stops for reviving sustenance, because who are we kidding, everything really revolves around the food.
