RURAL RETREAT

 

Jon Staff has lived in more than his fair share of non-traditional dwellings. During the high school, in Minnesota, he spent his summers sleeping on a boat. Between his junior and senior years of college, he lived secretly in an office of a Harvard library. And before heading to Harvard Business School he lived and worked in an Airstream trailer while traveling the American West. Jon was clearly attracted to the tiny house movement - the trend that advocates the simplicity of living in small houses -, and he began to think about the idea of creating a startup for small houses.
At the end of 2014, Jon Staff and Pete Davis started a conversation with other Harvard students to revolutionize the housing industry. The project Getaway was launched in summer 2015 with a very clear goal: build tiny houses, put them in a beautiful rural place and rent them per night for couples, families or groups of friends. After many sleepless nights, a lot of drawings and carpentry lessons, the first Boston Getaway House - Ovida - came to southern New Hampshire and the reservation requests began to emerge.
Currently, Getaway offers seven different cabins in Boston and New York.
