Meet the Woodruff family. Amber and Tyler met at a Starbucks. Amber was working as a barista and Tyler, originally from Utah, was studying for his masters in Knoxville. They didn't know it at the time, but just a few years later they would not only be life partners but business partners as well.


The story behind the vision and building of the Little River Tiny House — one of the highest-rated Airbnbs in all of Tennessee — is nothing short of a miracle.


Amber and Tyler Woodruff were rich with dreams, but poor in cash. Through a series of serendipitous events, the Woodruff's were able to purchase their dream home in Maryville, Tennessee — on a property that was large enough for a second home (a second tiny home that is). Tune in to this episode of Behind the Stays to hear the remarkable story of how a young family designed, built, and promoted their first Airbnb on little more than a wing and a prayer.

My husband and I collect unique Airbnb stays. I feel very qualified to make this statement, everything about Amber‘s tiny house is five star. Immaculate, stylish, unique. Attention to detail is truly one of Amber‘s talents. We were greeted with a sweet surprise for my birthday, very much appreciated! Amber is actually one of the many super hosts that we have experienced that is actually a true Super Host. We found a Bourbon ice cube tray in the freezer! What? Who thinks if that? We decided within the first hour that we were coming back. Book it now.

This place was an absolute dream. ✨ It was so clean & cozy, and was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The space was so stylish, and all of the design details and thoughtful touches were truly impressive. The bed was seriously the most comfortable thing I have ever slept in! Amber & her husband were the most incredible, hospitable hosts who really went above & beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay. I cannot say enough good things about this place, and I highly recommend staying here, it’s seriously the best!!!
