The tiny home trend is coming to Rocky Mount. The first and only tiny home hotel in eastern North Carolina is being built along the Tar River, representatives announced Wednesday.
Dubbed River & Twine, a 20-unit hotel, will feature modern amenities including full-size glass door showers, microwaves, fridges and coffee makers in all homes. There will also be complimentary high-speed internet and smart TVs in each unit.
The tiny home hotel community will include groupings of five homes, which will share amenities including fire pits, grills, outdoor games and children’s play areas.
“River & Twine will offer a one-of-a-kind experience for all visitors to Rocky Mount,” Rocky Mount Mills/Capitol Broadcasting Company Residential Leasing Specialist Tim Rogers said. “Whether you’re here for work, sports, recreation or simply to chill, River & Twine will be your go-to spot for a unique get away.”
Modern Tiny Living and Free Spirit Tiny Homes have been contracted to build the homes, which will each have a different style.
“The tiny house movement is — at least for thousands of people — a way to unplug and rediscover who we are,” CEO of Modern Tiny Living Trent Haery said. “The riverfront at Rocky Mount Mills is the perfect place to do that. Plus, if you’d like to plug back in, restaurants and breweries are just a short hike away.”
An overnight stay will start at $129 and guests can also book extended stays of 30 days or more.
River & Twine will begin accepting reservations this fall. It is expected to open at the end of the year.
Rocky Mount Mills is a mixed-use development that includes breweries, restaurants, homes and a seasonal concert series.
