Stop by and see for yourself if a tiny house fits your big life!
We offer free tours of tiny houses and the Little River Escape community every weekend Fri-Sun 1-5 EST. If you need to make a weekday appointment, please give us 2 days advance notice.
See our Facebook page for weather closings if you plan to drive more than an hour on a rainy day. We will try to post them by 11 EST.
We have 5-8 different models to tour on any given weekend, but plan to come before 3pm Friday or on Sunday if you specifically want to see the rental or Try Before You Buy houses, since they might be occupied.
If you plan to tour the River Side Escape lots for purchase, please let us know in advance as someone will need to take you a few blocks away to those locations. Most of the time, we'll want to schedule your appointment at noon on the weekend.
Note: Phone and internet reception is spotty on the mountain so plan your route on paper if possible so you don’t get lost. Using a mobile navigator / GPS, enter 11987 Hwy 48, Menlo GA 30731.
See our video tour.
We want everyone to get the full experience of tiny living! The Collins is now available to rent as a Try Before You Buy house. This bright and lively home is 397 sq ft with 2 porches and all floor to ceiling windows.
Our Hawthorn is our Guest Cabin for residents, but is also available on our Try Before You Buy program and allows you to apply your visit cost toward a purchase within 90 days. This 2 BR model is a lovely introduction to downsizing at 510 sqft. A private patio out the back door provides additional "personal space" if needed. Fill out the form to the right to reserve the Hawthorn or the Collins and schedule your tour of the other houses and community.
All owner amenities are available to you during your stay. Sorry, but NO PETS allowed during short term stays in consideration of allergy sufferers. The Changing Tree Cottage is the only pet-friendly rental house and the link is below to book. Check in is 3pm EST and check out is 11am EST. 48-hr notice preferred to secure a reservation, or cancel an existing one.
We also have owners in the community who rent their houses to the public. The models currently available are listed below with rental site links. Stop by the office on the weekend and we'll give you a tour, or email us to make an appointment during the week.
