Tiny Home Between Decatur & Springfield 1 mile north of I-72
Why Renee Sommer chose Niantic
Tina's Tiny House, was a one chair barber shop when originally built in the 1950s. By 2010 Tina's Family Cuts was only a part time beauty shop. In 2017 as the craze for tiny homes started sweeping TV and the country, the beauty shop was transformed into a tiny home. Approximately the size of a typical motel room, the entire house is just at 300 SF. If you need to be in the area for business, pleasure, family, passing thru, or just curious if you could successfully downsize, try this tiny house on for size.

Tiny but comfy and convenient!
I've never understood the tiny house movement. After staying here, I'm convinced it'd be a terrible way to live. But, it's perfect for transient lodging. What's uncomfortably small for a dwelling, makes for a spacious hotel room.
Renee is a fantastic host. She's set up the property for maximum comfort and efficiency. She even has a laminated printout with detailed information on the amenities as well as stickers and labels so you can find things quickly and easily.
Something prospective lodgers should be aware of: there's no internet access at the house. There is a access point for Xfinity customers, but the signal is fairly weak in the house - I couldn't get a solid connection for streaming, but the connection would be good enough for simple email etc. Verizon has a strong signal there though, and I had no trouble using a hot spot.
This will be my preferred stay next time in the area!
There's More Than Meets The Eye
There has been a lot of thought put into this Tiny Home and the details made this stay for us feel like we were at home. It was tiny but the space was utilized very well which gave us plenty of room to move about. This is also a small town as well so it was quiet and not much going on. There was a very nice convenience store. The communication with the owner was A+ and we love that about staying in places other than hotels. We highly recommend this tiny home if you are in the area and need a small yet perfect place to stay! When we visit again, we hope that it is still available.
Located in a small town in the middle of farm country. If you are going to be Decatur, Springfield, Champaign, or Bloomington, check out this tiny house. All major cities via 4-lane major highways/interstate. If you are just wanting to try out a tiny house before making the leap stay here and see what you think!
