Enjoy your tiny home in the trees! Although only 350 square feet, this home has everything you need for a delightful stay. Cook dinner in a full kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, and coffeemaker. You have dinnerware, silverware, water and wine glasses, cookware, and all the essential kitchen accessories. Both the loft and the attached sleeping pod are furnished with queen beds. Enjoy your deck with a grill and a view of the trout pond, and your private hottub.

The space
Waking up in your treehouse, the first thing you feel is peace. No traffic, no sirens, no planes flying overhead. Only birdsong—the cry of a loon, the piping of a chickadee. Through the windows, you see only leaves, like green glass, filtering the early morning light. Below you, on the ground, a doe and her fawn pick their way down to the pond. They do not hurry, for there is nothing here to frighten them.

Downstairs in the kitchen, coffee is brewing. Your tablet is charging on the windowsill. You could check your email or social media, but for some reason you don’t want the world to intrude. Out on the deck, a warm mug cradled in your hands, you and your partner plan your morning. Perhaps you’ll paddle the kayak across Littlefield Pond while the mist still lies thick on its smooth surface. Or take a fishing pole down to your private dock to catch brook trout for breakfast. Or maybe just soak in the hot tub and listen to the forest awaken.

In the afternoon, you sit by the woodstove, engrossed in that book you’ve always meant to read. Your companions are playing a board game at the table, but mostly laughing and talking—about everything and nothing. You look up from your book and smile. For a moment you think about your life back home and ask yourself, “Why do we own so much stuff? What would our lives be like if we lived more like this, with fewer—but lovelier—things?”

It was questions like this that inspired three families—the Avallones from Colorado, the Parekhs from California, and the Valcourts from nearby Portland—to create Littlefield Retreat. More than a vacation experience, Littlefield retreat is an exploration of what sustainable travel—and living in general—might look like. It offers guests an opportunity to live for a few days with a smaller footprint but without sacrificing beauty or comfort.

We call it eco-luxury. You can see the exquisite workmanship and attention to detail from the instant you climb the spiral stairs and open the door to your tiny home amidst the trees. The eco-friendly elements are less visible but just as essential to the Littlefield vision: many recycled and reclaimed materials were used in the construction of your treehouse. It is also super-insulated, with ultra-efficient heating and hot water. At present, the energy that powers this tiny home is wind sourced, with plans for summer 2020 to install a 150-panel solar array on the property, making Littlefield retreat’s five boutique tiny homes entirely carbon neutral. Even the carbon from your commute from Portland or Boston has been offset for you.

Come experience a wonderful—and sustainable—kind of getaway at Littlefield retreat.
