LYONS, Colo. — It’s Colorado’s first tiny home hotel — and we’re told it’s the largest in the world.
“We’re the largest. We have the most number of tiny homes,” co-founder Kenyon Waugh said of the aptly-named “WeeCasa.”
The WeeCasa Hotel offers 17 tiny houses to rent. They range from 135 square feet in size to the palatial 400-square-foot model. Either way, it’s wee.
The WeeCasa was created to express a new vision of the American dream, based on sustainability and simplicity, Waugh said.
“You spend less on cleaning products. You spend less on going to Cosco and big box stores where you’re buying volume. So it really helps sustainability,” said Waugh.
Sounds like sales pitch to buy and not to rent. It kind of is. If you want information on where to buy, Waugh has got that for you, too.
“Over 50 percent of the guests that come are just coming to see what it’s like to be in a tiny house,” Waugh said.
Tiny kitchen, tiny sink, tiny signs on the wall, just about everything is tiny.
“Except for the experience, which is huge,” Waugh said.
But of all Colorado towns to be in, why Lyons? Wouldn’t Tiny Town be the obvious choice?
