In fact, Tiny Homes are actually great for the environment. This means you can take a weekend vacation stress-free without worrying about if your vacation home is ruining the planet. You are worried about that, right? You should be.

Enter Tiny Homes! These babies have everything you need for a cozy weekend away. Leave the hectic NOLA life behind and spend a weekend this month chilling somewhere quiet, gorgeous, and environmentally friendly.

All of these Tiny Homes are in the State of Louisiana, which means some of them are quite a drive away from New Orleans. However, during COVID it can be important for many to avoid crossing state borders. If one of these homes is too far away for a weekend stay, consider a weeklong vacation instead!

Have fun, stay safe, and be responsible folks.

This River A-Frame in Natchez

This newly renovated tiny home sits on the banks of the Cane River. Making it perfect for a cozy water getaway. Mere minutes from Cane River Creole National Historic Park, the Oakland Plantation, and the Shell Beach boat launch. You’ll find plenty to do here in order to relax and unwind.

Boasting a deck overlooking the river - perfect for a relaxing evening sipping a beer with your sweetheart. There is a full kitchen, full bath, and a gorgeous spiral staircase leading up to the loft bedroom. The cozy loft bed is guaranteed to make you want to spend a few extra hours lounging before starting your day.

The master bedroom downstairs and the cozy loft room upstairs will sleep four guests comfortably. There are a full bathroom and a spacious well-appointed kitchen.

Both bedrooms are lofted, meaning they are not completely private. Each features a queen-sized bed. The kitchen is perfect for cooking small meals, and the living area is well suited for a relaxing evening. For those who enjoy hiking, there are trails throughout the property just waiting to be explored.

This Shady Cabin in Bogalusa

The completely private master bedroom features a jacuzzi tub. The other room is a semi-private loft room common in A-frames and Tiny Homes. There is a full kitchen, extra sleeper sofa, and a living area. This woodsy stay is perfect for a weekend relaxing, grilling, and having a few beers around the water with friends.

This Tiny House in Sunset

This one bed, one bath tiny house can sleep up to three people comfortably. However, it is far more suited for a weekend couples getaway. Only 271 square feet, this adorable home features a full bedroom, a full bathroom, and a full kitchen.

The loft bed area is romantic and roomy. The bright and surprisingly spacious tiny house features colorful, tasteful decorations and a few surprises in the fridge just for you. Location-wise be sure to take advantage of the nearby breweries and the beautiful historic church. If the outdoors are your thing, there is also nearby hiking in the wetlands.

This Cajun Oasis in New Iberia

New Orleans isn’t the only place in Louisiana with history and culture, folks. This Bayou Chateau is located in downtown New Iberia - near the Gumbo Festival that happens every October. So you already know you’re going to be steps away from amazing food.

This unique and rustic studio apartment features 2 beds and one bath. It would be perfect for couples or those of us ridin’ solo. The spacious deck is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The exposed brick inside and the leather accents will make your stay feel relaxing and comfortable. The full kitchen features a wooden breakfast bar, and the entire place is stylishly decorated.

For those wanting to stay a bit closer to New Orleans, this tiny home sits on a historic plantation and is just waiting for you to arrive. The home is only 20 or so minutes from NOLA but will feel worlds away. Renters will even get a discount on Plantation Tours throughout their stay.
