The Story Behind Villa Pine

Brian Gunnoe, the visionary behind Hugga in the Hills, shares the inspiration for Villa Pine. Born from a desire to blend the villa experience with the charm of tiny house living, Villa Pine is a “deconstructed villa,” featuring separate buildings connected by a large deck. This innovative design brings guests closer to nature, allowing them to experience the elements in a new way.

With a focus on privacy, views, and integration with the natural environment, Villa Pine incorporates unique elements such as Yakisugi siding, a traditional Japanese wood preservation technique, adding a distinct aesthetic touch.

The villa’s thoughtful design includes wider buildings for extra comfort, a hot tub integrated into the deck, a sauna, a hanging bed, and swings, ensuring a memorable and relaxing stay.
