Tiny House as Bunk House rental



Tiny House \ Bunkhouse
Chantilly Event & Camping Venue

We have two primitive small tiny house's at Chantilly Farm campground used as bunk house rental units. They are surprisingly popular rentals and super simple & functional.

Enjoy hiking and bike trails that start next to the Bunkhouses.

Tiny House (bunkhouse)A with  Fire Pit. 
The bunkhouses are located in a nice setting with a fire pit for outdoor pleasure and cooking.   Each Bunk house generated about $3000 for the 2019 year. This is a good return as these units have been set up and used on three other farms during the past 10 years. First as a  hunters cabins then moved and used on two other farms as weekend camping cabins for the family.

A good example of reuse of a product.

Bunk house A is named
"Cheery Chipmunk"
Camper like the clever way we have named the Tiny Homes after local animals and events. Bunk House A  named "Cheery Chipmunk".  Bunkhouse B is "Rising Rainbow".

WiFi is available at each bunk house from one of the five WiFi towers on the farm. 



Bunk House A interior 
The inside is finished with 2x4  studs shown as part of the interior   wall.  The furnishings include one led light blub - four bunks - one table and 4 chairs. The AC power is minimal and only useful to charge your cell phone or computer.  

Chantilly Farm is very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway.





Bunk beds in Bunk House A.

These are unheated however it is surprising how many times we rent these out in rather cold  weather.  Motorcycle campers really like these bunk houses in place of setting up a small tent.  It is a no brainier  when it is raining to rent a bunkhouse instead of setting up a small tent. Simple bunk beds work just fine and Campers furnish there own bedding.
