Our tiny house is beautifully appointed with everything you need to live in luxury two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and two miles from downtown Floyd, VA. Sleep soundly on the queen sized mattress topped with 4" memory foam. Cook your gourmet meals in the fully equipped kitchen—(we provide welcome muffins, organic coffee, half and half, sugar, yogurt, rolled oats, olive oil, salt, pepper, and cinnamon.) Spend the evening enjoying a campfire or relax on the porch swing.

The space
These 168 sq. ft. have quite the story. I documented it on my blog TinyHouseFamily. Here's an overview:

We built our tiny house as a response to losing our business and subsequently our home in the economic collapse of 2008. That experience taught us that we never wanted to use credit again, so we started saving every penny and set out to build a mortgage-free homestead in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We bought these three acres for cash, put in a well and septic, and built our temporary home: an 8'x21' tiny house complete with two sleeping lofts, a full kitchen and 3/4 bath. We super-insulated it to keep us comfy in all seasons. It housed us well, and we learned a lot from living together in such small quarters.

We moved into the tiny house in May of 2011 and lived there for 4.25 years while we continued to save for and build the main house (the big house) on our homestead. This tiny house took us on a wild publicity ride from 2012 - 2015 starting with an appearance on Anderson Cooper and culminating in a commercial for Nikon.

Now, we live just up the hill from our little house, and seeing it welcome guests from around the world gives us great joy.

When we moved out of the tiny house and into the big house, we began a full renovation on the tiny house. We took out one sleeping loft to expand the feeling of spaciousness in the living room/bedroom and to accommodate a queen-sized bed on the lower level. We painted everything white, installed new oak floors, remodeled the kitchen to include a dishwasher, and added concrete countertops. We are thrilled with the remodel.

We've done our best to think of everything you'll need to feel right at home during your stay.

We welcome you!

Guest access
You will have access to the entire tiny house, front porch and side deck (right next to the tiny house). The front porch has a porch swing, a rocking chair, and a comfy wicker chair. The side deck has a fire pit and chairs. We'll provide you with fire wood.

Other things to note
Cell service can be iffy if you have a provider other than Verizon. If Verizon is your carrier, you will have great cellular and data access. Sprint works pretty well. US Cellular and T-Mobile are unreliable, but do have spotty coverage. AT&T has no coverage in Floyd. We do have WiFi in the tiny house.

The tiny house has a queen bed, and therefore only accommodates two people. Up to two additional guests are welcome to join you and sleep on the tent platform which is right next to the tiny house. The charge for additional guests is $12/person/night. You will need to bring your own tent and sleeping bags.

We are two miles from the only stop light in Floyd County which marks the center of town. Two miles in the other direction, you'll reach the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Fridays are hopping in Floyd. On warm Fridays musicians will line the streets playing bluegrass and old-time music. The Country Store is famous for its Friday Night Jamboree where national and regional bluegrass and old-time acts perform. The cover is $5.

If you can't make it to town on a Friday, there is still plenty to enjoy. Be sure to view my list of recommendations in my Guidebook.

Our homestead is three acres. Each of our neighbors to the right and left also live on three acres. Across the street, there are a few homes up on the hill, but the valley is farmland. The farmer raises cows and hay on the fields. Across the street is also the workshop of a wood-turner whose family has carved bowls, spoons, and tools for generations.

I live in rural Floyd, Virginia on a 3 acre homestead I built with my husband, Karl and our two kiddos, Ella and Archer. We raise chickens and grow lots of flowers and veggies. Our life is simple and full of time outdoors. We lived in our tiny house for 4.25 years as we built our bigger house ourselves and without a mortgage. We are delighted to live debt-free and spend our time tending the land, sharing what we've learned and exploring new places. We love meeting new people and learning about life in other communities. Life continues to prove to me that clearing the excess makes room for joy.

During your stay
We are available if you need us, but we give you plenty of space. We're always happy to have a chat with guests if we happen to meet in the driveway. The tiny house has a keyless entry, so it's possible we won't see each other at all.

Part of our business is consulting with people who are considering downsizing to a tiny house, and would-be owner-builders who are looking for insight into how one can build a mortgage-free homestead. We can help with logistics of turning raw land into a home place. We are happy to arrange for consultations with our Airbnb guests during their stay. Please let us know if you'd like to add this service to your visit.
