Vacations, Unplugged

What you need to know:

  • Some 60 % of people still check email on vacation, despite wanting to get away from screens. Vacation homes in a remote natural areas — without WiFi and minimal cellular service — are gaining in popularity.   
  • The startup Getaway has built ~200 tiny cabins in the U.S. in the last four years and has received ~$40m in funding. 

How you can capitalize: 

  • Follow the Getaway model and build your own tiny cabins in forested areas near your city for ~$40k. At $150 nights and with bookings 200 nights a year you’d make $30k annually. 
  • Pay attention to popular national parks, which are seeing magnitudes more visitors the last few years, and build near them.
