Tiny Houses at Edgar’s Mission
This eco-friendly accommodation is reopening after a three-year hiatus. Truly immerse yourself in the wonders of the sanctuary, and go on guided tour to meet some of the rescued animals. Then, stay overnight in one of the sustainable tiny houses.
Each dwelling has been crafted with a focus on sustainability, using renewable energy systems to create an eco-conscious experience. The stylish interiors use products sourced from companies that share the values of non-harm and sustainability, like Bhumi organic cotton linens and organic toiletries. Some materials, which are traditionally associated with harm and confinement of animals, such as metals and rope, have also been repurposed. Each tiny house has kitchen facilities, a toilet, a shower and a deck.
“We are thrilled to offer this unique experience to animal lovers and compassionate individuals alike,” said Pam Ahern, Founder of Edgar’s Mission. “Our Tiny Houses embody the values we hold dear at Edgar’s Mission, providing an unparalleled opportunity to connect with animals and nature on a deeper level.”
There are three types of Tiny Houses to choose from at Edgar’s Mission. Each one is dedicated to the memory of three beloved animal ambassadors – Edgar Alan Pig, Timmy the sheep and Little Miss Sunshine the hen. Each dwelling has subtle interiors to represent the unique features of each animal and their preferred environments.
- Edgar’s Cottage – this loft-style tiny house was inspired by the piglet that started it all. You’ll find plenty of soft pinks in this house, with a downstairs kitchen and living space and a cosy upstairs bedroom.
- Timmy’s Villa – this tiny house is also like a loft, named in memory of their sheep ambassador Timmy. The villa also has a downstairs kitchen and living space with an upstairs bedroom, as well as a library.
- Casa del Sunshine – this single-level space is named in honour of the rescued battery hen, Little Miss Sunshine. Take in sweeping views from your comfortable bed by gazing through the large picture window. The house is infused with warm browns, greens and golds.
