Tiny Homes Don’t Get Any Cooler Than this Tiny Log Cabin Home! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when we pulled up to Lancaster Log Cabins manufacturing facility just outside of Gap, Pennsylvania. But WOW! This definitely ended up being one of my all time favorite tours.
Lancaster Log Cabins builds a variety of tiny log homes that are fully customizable. They have been doin this since 1990. They don’t use any fake logs when constructing these homes. These are real log homes, just tiny. Oh, did I mention their homes are turn key? This means most of the furniture comes standard and the rest is an option to come with the tiny home! I know its pretty neat!

Okay, so I have heard a few people say it looks a little bit like an old caboose. That may be the case but its a good looking caboose! Either way, the outside of this tiny log cabin home, surprisingly is made of real logs. No fake log siding here. Lancaster Log Homes use 4×6 tongue and groove eastern white pine logs and stack them from the bottom up.
There are plenty of windows going all the way around the home and a green tin roof adding a little extra pop of color on the top of this home. Sitting on the fron of the home is a beautiful 10ft porch! I could definitely see myself sitting on it all day up in the mountains somewhere!
Living Room and Dining Room
When you first enter this home you will notice the high vaulted ceilings. You are then greeted with the main living spaces. To the right is the “living room”. It has a nice futon that acts as booth the couch, and when needed, an extra bed.
To the left of the living room area is the dining room table. It is a hand crafted log table from right there in the Amish community near Gap. It, along with most of the handcrafted furniture are included with the price of the home. This makes it super easy and convenient to have this home all set up with in a matter of hours of it reaching your site.
Continuing through the home, you come to the kitchenette. It has a horse shoe shaped counter top with space for seating just on the living room side. There is no shortage of storage space in here as there is a cabinet or drawer tucked into some nook or cranny.
The kitchen sink sits along the side exterior wall just below a window making sure you are never with out a view. Along the back wall of the kitchen you will find your stove and a microwave built in above it. Across the walkway is the refrigerator. It is tucked away nicely just below the stairs leading up to the basement. See I told you the put things in every nook and cranny.
Bedroom and Bathroom
Past the kitchen area, you will enter a small corridor or room with a set of bunk beds. The bunk beds are optional so it would be too easy to convert this space into something else. Like I said earlier these cabins can be somewhat customized. Just let Lancaster Log Cabins know what you are looking for and I am sure they will be able to accommodate you.
To the left of the bunk beds is the bathroom. There is only one bathroom in here, however, for the vacation or Airbnb home, its suitable. It features a shower and tub combination, single vanity with built in medicine cabinet mirror and of course the toilet.
Passing through this corridor, all the way at the back of the home, you come to the one actual bedroom that this home offers. It is a lovely size measuring, in at approximately 11ft 10in X 9ft 7in. The room is adorned with rustic furniture, which again, comes with the home as part of the turnkey option. It has a bed with floating bedside tables, a dresser and a wardrobe.
Finally, going up the stairs to the loft, you will find a nice large open space for hanging out or storage. I am 6 foot tall and have plenty of head room when I sit up on my knees, once I actually got up there. There is a small section at the top of the stairs that someone of my stature has to contort in a weird way to access. I guess I makes for the perfect “fort” area for kids.
There are several outlets up here as well as a cable jack. Keeping someone occupied up here would not be hard at all. Heck, call me, I’ll volunteer!
This park model is definitely the coolest tiny log cabin home I have seen! I personally would love to put this in the mountains and use it as a vacation getaway and rent it out to others looking for some solitude. Let us know what you think of this home down in the comments.
