    "There are some amazing places in this beautiful world and this is certainly one of them. Thank you for creating this marvelous tiny house and letting us be a part of it!"

    Rosebud is a traditionally designed tiny house featuring charming wood in both the interior and exterior, making it feel like a rustic and cozy cabin. At 120 sq. ft., this cozy cabin features river rock counter tops, Mason jar lights and a comfortable living room that includes a cushioned bench and a pullout table on wheels with stools for dining. Like all of Caravan’s tiny houses, Rosebud has running water, electric heat, a kitchen, a flush toilet and a hot shower.

    Rosebud is a warm and intimate space best suited for 1-2 guests and has a kitchen, bathroom, living room space, and sleeping area. Its’ lofted queen bed is accessible by ladder and there is plenty of room for storage, including a storage loft, closets and built-in cubby shelves.

    **House trained, friendly dogs are allowed in Rosebud for an additional $25 pet fee.

    This darling little house was designed and built by Hal McClendon in 2012 in the driveway of his Salem, Oregon home. Recently retired, this was Hal’s first foray into home building. After he built Rosebud, Hal sold it to Eli Spevak, the founder of Orange Splot (a housing development company and general contractor with a mission to pioneer new models of community-oriented, affordable, green housing in Portland). In June of 2013, it became one of Caravan’s first tiny houses.

    We stayed in "the Rosebud" for a night during our honeymoon and it was a blast. My husband still can't stop talking about how comfortable the memory foam mattress was. We really enjoyed the outdoor seating area and the area where you can build a fire. The whole area was so relaxing I fell asleep out there twice.

    Thank you for having the idea for this place and actually creating it! I loved staying in Rosebud and intend to come back. All hotels should be like this!

    Had such a wonderful stay here. I loved every minute that I was in Rosebud. I’ve had thoughts about building a tiny home and after staying here, I think I know the clear answer now. Thanks for the inspiration!

    We had a wonderful time here at the Rosebud caravan. We’ve never stayed in a ¨tiny house¨ before and we were amazed to see how well everything was organized. We particularly liked the collection of books and spent hours going through the ¨tiny house living¨ magazines. Thanks for the absolutely amazing experience!

    Thrilled to be spending Christmas evening here in Rosebud with my son, relaxing and reading, hanging out imagining our own tiny home. Feels like we’ve somehow always lived here. Thank you so much! We will be back.

    Had a wonderful stay in Rosebud (and Portland) as a stop on a big US road trip - the coolest accommodations I’ve had so far! Cheers!

    We stayed here for our first night in a week-long trip to Portland and loved it! By far the coziest place we’ve ever stayed!

    Thank you for being such gracious and thoughtful hosts. The stay was inspirational and enlightening.

    This is like a cozy tree house but on wheels! I love the Mason jar lights and the polished stone countertops. Everyone wants their own tiny house because they’re the luxury version of the fort you built for yourself when you were a kid. If I’d had one of these when I was 12 years old I would have died of happiness!
