Shiny Tiny is designed for folks that enjoy unique and creative spaces, especially interested in the tiny house movement.
The Shiny Tiny is a stationary tiny house on wheels, which was constructed through a 6 week workshop where students learned hands on how to build a tiny house by tiny house expert Art Cormier and architect Francine Primeaux-Kennedy. Sustainable practices were incorporated through-out the construction including wood diverted from the local landfill.
A gorgeous hand carved front door by local artist Larry Bourque welcomes each guest to a contemporary light filled cleverly appointed space with painted birch paneling, ample functioning windows and re-purposed pine floors through-out. The living area includes a futon, two chairs and rotating original artwork. The bathroom boasts long grain cedar paneling, a full sized shower. The Shiny Tiny also features a kitchen equipped with a two burner propane stove, refrigerator, coffee press, toaster and microwave oven and a beautiful stainless steel counter-top.
You can relax on the porch which overlooks a semi-private lawn with oak trees.
- Local art work, events, dance, music, potlucks, French tables, quilting, ... around the corner at the NUNU Collective
- Private tours available to get a jump start on the local sites, scenes and culture.
- Local kayak rentals available

Staying in the Shiny Tiny is not your typical stay for most. The space is intentionally small so packing light is a smart thing to do. You will learn how to use a composting toilet and although the shower is full sized, water use is lessened due to a heat on demand water heater. In the kitchen you will find a small fridge and propane stove. Soap products are provided but are limited to those that are friendly to the environment.
