tiny home

texas resortTiny living may have started as a small community, but it’s turned into a minimalist revolution. As more and more people decide to eschew “the stuff” for a simpler approach to home and life, more stories are coming out from industry visionaries, including stories from one Texas Resort

Turning Tiny: The Small Living Paradigm That’s Reshaping the Way We Work, Live and Dream is an anthology consisting of stories from the movement’s top visionaries and tiny dwellers. Compiled and edited by Darin Zaruba, creator of the Tiny House Jamboree and a manufacturer of tiny homes.

In addition to sharing stories of those that have “turned tiny,” Zaruba aims to redefine the tiny movement beyond 400 sq ft cottages on wheels by incorporating and including all small spaces, from RV’s to treehouses. The book encompasses over 60 stories from all aspects of the tiny living community.

One of their features is on Mill Creek Ranch Resort, an East Texas resort that moves beyond the landscape of one person or family chunking all their stuff for small space living hacks and life on the move. Mill Creek Ranch Resort has really taken to tiny, but not in a way you may expect. 

Mill Creek Ranch Resort is a nature lover’s vacation destination complete with resort amenities and the whole nine, and they have turned tiny in a big way. When you stay at the resort, you’ll likely be sleeping in a tiny house. They have nearly 50 tiny cottages available for rent, each equipped with full kitchens and bathrooms. It’s a full-service tiny house park that’s more like half-way between a really nice Airbnb and a wooded resort. They feature scores of amenities from pools (of course) and a spa to dozens of family-friendly games and on-site activities.

This Texas Resort embraces another facet of tiny living by doubling as an RV Park. Resort amenities are also available to RV’s complete with concierge and full hook-ups. They further embrace the RV/camper community with seasonal specials RV Rally packages.

For more information, check out Turning Tiny online or you can purchase a digital version of the book on Amazon. The book is also available in the camp store at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.
