Overview

About the property

Tiny house by Randy Jones, who has been featured on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters.

We would be thrilled to share our tiny house, custom made by HGTV featured builder Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes, with you in the historic Todd community.

Our "tiny" sits by a charming old farm house and barn in a rural setting where the livestock and a small stream are your neighbors. Despite the remote feel, you are minutes from New River tubing, kayaking, fishing, and Railroad Grade road, where High Country locals and visitors alike flock for biking and jogging along the picturesque river. Downtown West Jefferson, and its thriving main street lined with the shops of local artisans, antique stores, and restaurants, including the popular Boondocks brewery, is 15 minutes away. Boone is a beautiful 25-minute drive away along HWY 194, a scenic North Carolina byway. It's a peaceful escape that's not too far out to keep you from indulging in all the High Country offers.

Our stylish tiny features a queen sleeping loft that is accessible by stairs--no ladder climbing required. A second loft has a futon sofa. It's a perfect reading nook that doubles as additional sleeping space. The living room has a custom sofa for watching the wall-mounted smart TV that includes hidden storage and also folds out for yet another extra sleeping option.

There are no compromises in the bath and kitchen of this tiny house. There's a 36-inch wide shower fed by a tankless water heater, plenty of hotel-style towels, and an environmentally friendly composting toilet. The kitchen features a large fridge and freezer, a four-burner range with oven, a farmhouse sink, and everything you need to make a meal if you decide to eat in.

Outdoors, in addition to the quiet stream, there is a rustic firepit featuring a reclaimed barnwood bench and a quiet, scenic mountain road perfect for walking Fido, should you desire to bring the dog.

If you've considered downsizing but want to try before you buy, or you just want an affordable getaway in an adorable small space, this is your opportunity to live tiny!

Perfect, Peaceful, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Clean and comfy with everything you need for a great getaway. If you're worried about feeling confined in the tiny house, don't! The high ceilings make the house feel open and there's also great outdoor spaces to enjoy.

The owner is super attentive and accessible should you need anything at all.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the tiny house. It was comfortable and very clean. We didn't want to leave, and have talked about it to everyone since we've been home. It is a great place to get away for a little while, and we would love to go back!

Cool house in an awesome setting

  • 5 of 5

Such a cool place to stay! The house was very clean and definitely well built. Was alot roomier than I expected; I'm 6'4" and didn't feel cramped at all. Plenty of privacy and beautiful views of the valley and surrounding mountains as you sit outside by the fire pit. The owners were friendly and recommended some good hikes in the area!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you didn't feel squeezed in the "tiny" house, Christian. It really is a great use of space. And, as you note, it's a great spot to escape and unwind. Hope you will come visit again!
