You won't be in Kansas any more, as Dorothy's Cottage is an adorable blue glamping cabin in West Jefferson, inspired by the musical fantasy film, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.  It sleeps two people and as it doesn't have heat, it is only available to book in late spring, summer and early fall.

Its most striking feature is the yellow brick road mural painted on the side of the tiny home, depicting Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow. The striped legs with ruby slippers poking out from under the cabin are also a charming feature.
