Spend a weekend in one of three tiny homes taking up temporary residence at shoreside locations in New York, courtesy of rental startup Getaway.

With the largest measuring just 200 sq ft, the cabins have been dotted around the shoreline in the Gateway National Recreation Area – offering seaside views away from the smog of the city.

Exact locations are only revealed to guests a week before their stay, but Getaway promises each tiny home is no more than a 30-minute car journey from New York’s Prospect Park.

Getaway at Gateway project is a collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy, and the huts follow the company’s off-grid policy. This means limited power, no wi-fi – and no hot water for your morning shower. Blankets are on hand to keep you warm, as well as a campfire and cooler for essentials.

Stella, Alvin and Lenore – as the company has named each cabin – will be available from 29 May to 4 September.

If you miss this window of opportunity, Getaway has several other permanent cabins in the wilderness (pictured above), conveniently located just two hours from Boston or New York.
