A small vacation at the WeeCasa tiny home hotel in Lyons
WeeCasa (720-460-0239, from $139/night), a self-described “tiny home hotel,” was built in 2016 and helps make Lyons more than simply a somewhere to stop for a meal on your way to or from Rocky Mountain National Park. But Lyons deserves some credit as its own destination, partly for this new town park, the tiny-house hotel — I’ve heard amazing things about the cute new library, too — but also for its handful of unique restaurants.
On this evening, we play it safe with a place we already know. We head upstairs at Oskar Blues, an old Lyons standby with a southern-tinged, meaty menu and balloons for the kids. I go for a pint of Black Perrin and Iowa Style whiskey-smoked pork chops over an arugula salad. Then we retreat to our tiny pocket of coziness, our tiny home for the night.
