Venture to where the Midwest meets the south with a stay in an exciting Missouri tiny home.

There’s much more to Missouri than St. Louis and the Gateway Arch, although there’s no denying these are some pretty top-notch attractions. But in the south, the atmospheric waters and scenic beauty of Lake of the Ozarks wows millions of visitors each year.

Along Historic Route 66, explorers can see the iconic Chain of Rocks and one of the country’s few remaining drive-in theaters. And no trip to Missouri is complete without chowing down on creamy frozen custard and smoky barbecue.

But if that’s not enough, one way to spice up your visit to Missouri is with a tiny home experience. Measuring no larger than 600 square feet, tiny homes offer big personalities squeezed into small spaces. Not to mention, they typically boast incredible amenities you can’t experience at home.

These epic tiny house rentals in Missouri are the definition of less house, more home.
