Founded in 2015 at Harvard University’s Innovation Lab by Jon Staff and Pete Davis, Getaway designs and operates “tiny house” rentals in rural areas just outside major cities.
The company places their custom built homes, each between 160 and 200 square feet, on secluded land in wooded, natural landscapes and rents them out by the night to those looking to experience nature. Consumers reserve their “getaways” online and the company takes care of the details from start to finish.
The company’s rentals are currently located outside of Boston and New York City.
Getaway will use the funds to add markets later this year.
