Caravan–The Tiny House Hotel

5009 N.E. 11th Ave., Alberta Arts District, Portland, Oregon, 97211, United States, Portland, Oregon, USA

Why We Like It

Caravan - The Tiny House Hotel is truly one-of-a-kind. Each tiny house has its own unique style, and the vibrant, enthusiastic vibe of the place definitely rubs off on you. If you’re looking for something fun, memorable, and completely different from your typical hotel experience, Caravan is definitely the place for you.

The tiny house movement is in full swing, but if you’re not ready to commit to your own tiny home on wheels, you’ll want to check out Caravan - The Tiny House Hotel. Located in the Alberta Arts District, this cluster of tiny homes are surprisingly comfortable and stylish - and a stay here pretty much guarantees a one-of-a-kind experience.


Caravan has six tiny houses to choose from, which range in size from 120 to 170 sq ft. Each house has its own look and feel, like The Amazing Mysterium, which has an exterior that looks like it belongs in a Tim Burton movie, or Skyline, which has an at-home country feel.

YOU SHOULD KNOW It should go without saying, but tiny houses are… well, tiny. If you’re an exceptionally tall person, check with the hotel to get the ceiling height of your tiny house to make sure you’ll be comfortable.


Tiny house, tiny bathroom. But don’t worry, the basics are covered - each tiny house has a flush toilet and a hot shower and is stocked with locally made soap from the Oregon Soap Company and sustainable shea shampoo and body wash.


Because Caravan is a collection of tiny houses, there’s no lobby. But there is a fire pit where guests can gather to chat and enjoy a snack - Caravan provides all you can eat s’mores with vegan marshmallows, organic graham crackers, and Fair Trade chocolate.

Caravan often hosts local bands next to the fire pit - make sure to ask if they’re hosting any live music during your stay!


There’s no on-site dining at Caravan, but every tiny house has a kitchen (where you can make some not-so-tiny meals). You can also get room service from the nearby Radio Room until 2am.


No on-site bar, but you can bring drinks outside to enjoy by the fire pit (who doesn't love a beer with their s'mores?).

Getting Around

Caravan is located in the heart of the Alberta Arts District, and pretty much everything you need - food, drink, entertainment, good ol' Portland weirdness - you can find within walking distance. You can also rent a bike from one of the many bike shops in the area or hop on the bus (there’s a bus stop right on the corner). If you must bring a car, you can find free parking on the street.


The Alberta Arts District is full of amazing restaurants. Pine State Biscuits (12-minute walk), which serves up amazing biscuit breakfast sandwiches, is a local favorite (make sure to try The Reggie). Another stand out is Back to Eden Bakery (12-minute walk), a vegan and gluten-free serving up some of the best baked goods in the city (and not just the best vegan/gluten-free baked goods… the best baked goods period). If you’re looking for something quick and delicious, stop by The Waffle Window (16-minute walk) which serves up - you guessed it - waffles out of a window.


With live jazz almost every night of the week, Solae’s Lounge (8-minute walk) is a great place to grab a cocktail and enjoy a night out on the town. If you’re in the mood for something a little quieter, head over to Les Caves: A Winery Bar (8-minute walk) and sample a few local wines.
