Deep in the woods of Northern New York, on a 14-acre plot of land sits a black micro-cabin built to create a peaceful getaway for those looking to escape.  What makes this escape unique is not only its’ picturesque location, but its’ tiny indoor living space. The micro-cabin is built from a 20 foot shipping container and serves as a one-of-a-kind vacation rental that is featured on AirBnb.

This tiny cabin redefines the expectations of a container refurb, featuring wood from floor to ceiling, sleek design and modern efficiency. Unlike anything out there, this container was originally built by “Contanium”, a New York based company that creates modern masterpieces out of shipping container units. 

It was built to provide a slightly elevated camping experience, creating a living space but encouraging a sense of getting back to nature while combining all the modern comforts of home. The cabin itself features a wood stove, a convertible couch/bed, bookshelf and a kitchen combined with energy efficient walls and insulated windows which emphasize the natural light element to the home. While a bathroom is not available in the cabin, a modern bathroom unit sits just 40 feet from the cabin allowing for privacy.

The cabins come equipped with a deck.  It also features an outdoor, wood-fired hot tub that uses water from the stream nearby within a 120-gallon galvanized tub. This tub creates the ultimate outdoor relaxation. 
Most of the time, tiny homes created from shipping containers can only be marveled at from a distance. But this micro-cabin can be enjoyed by many a vacationer looking to get back to nature. It is available year-round to rent and we hope will be the first of many new up and coming vacation rentals made from shipping containers.
