Stay in our REAL 90 sq ft of Tiny! Glamp in style on 10 acres with access to trails, pool, and 30ft yurt complete with yoga mats and meditation cushions. Join a class or workshop if it’s happening during your visit. Relax and enjoy a unique experience at Dharma Ranch retreat center all within 8 miles of downtown San Marcos.

Please read THE SPACE and OTHER THINGS TO NOTE before booking.

The space
The Tiny House is perfect for a couple or single person. This is a very tiny micro home but the deck and outdoor area makes your stay comfortable and unique in a wonderful way.

There's a picnic table and a sweet deck overlooking the woods with lounge chairs and a barbecue grill. The house has a hot plate, microwave, toaster, pots/pans, utensils, water, ac, and heat. Coffee, tea, sugar, salt/pepper, creamer provided. Please bring any condiments. *Fridge is also tiny* so space is limited.

There’s a TV for only watching DVD’s, with a lot to choose from, and plenty of books to read. We don’t have WiFi but cell service is good except inside the Tiny, it’s a hit or miss though it’s usually fine.

The bathroom, shower and dish washing sink are located in a separate building about a 100 ft. away. The house is well thought out, very cozy, sweet, and has everything you need for a Tiny House adventure!

We have 4 full time tenants who live in other Tiny House’s on the land. One is several hundred feet away divided by a privacy fence and the rest are far away and out of sight.

We want to share our home and land with people who are open-minded, quiet, mindful, playful, and peaceful.

We are a small retreat center for yoga/movement, meditation, personal development type classes/workshops, and our goal is to create an environment that is conducive to creativity, contemplation, and meaningful conversation. Meditation instructions available for a donation.

*** If you're looking for a place to party, this isn't it. Light drinking is okay but being intoxicated, loud parties, and loud people are NOT okay. No smoking or drugs. Please respect our guidelines. ***

Since we are a retreat center, your stay may fall on a morning or night when we have a meditation/yoga class or workshop of some sort in the yurt. The Tiny House is far enough away that any activity shouldn't bother you. During these times the bathroom is shared by participants. Guests are welcome to join meditation practice for free or yoga for the visiting teacher's fee.

If you have any questions regarding the setup, please ask!

We love pets but since we have 3 well-behaved, friendly dogs on the premises along with 3 outdoor cats, we do not accept dogs. There is a kennel with great rates 2 miles down the road, email us for info.

We are also 5 miles from the Spring Lake Hike and Bike trail.

Thanks!

Where you’ll be

San Marcos, Texas, United States

On our dead end road there are over 15 + artists/musicians who call Valley View West their home. This is an intentional community where people have their own land to make furniture, sculpt with clay/wood, throw pottery, work in found objects and play music. Dharma Ranch brings the body, mind, and spirit side to the community. Our hood is creative and open minded.

We are located 40 miles from downtown Austin, 50 from San Antonio, 18 from Wimberley and 8 miles from downtown San Marcos and Texas State University. Circuit of the Americas is 36 miles away and San Marcos Outlets around 20 miles.

We live in the main house and if home, will be available when needed.

We live in a community and have ongoing classes so there are people around but everyone is respectful and quiet.
