Gracious Tiny House Park

Where can I park my tiny house in Florida?

Lake Okeechobee is a wonderful lakefront Tiny House Community in South-Central Florida. Gracious loves tiny homes !

Do you have any rental lots available for tiny homes?

Yes, we rent out RV sites in our community for large and small tiny homes on wheels. There are 25 full hook-up sites in our park. There is plenty of long-term tiny house parking available so you can conveniently live legally near Palm Beach County, Martin County, Indian River County, St. Lucie County, Broward County, Oceola County. Our busiest months are January and February during which we are revisited by our snowbird friends.

Are there Tiny Houses for sale or Tiny Houses for rent at the park?

 At this time, there are no Tiny Houses available for sale or rent in our tiny home community.  Please contact our Tiny House Manager for updates.

Is there a maximum or minimum stay allowance to park my THOW?

For example, do you allow residents to live full-time in a tiny house? Can we park our tiny house there year-round, but only live in it a few times a year?

We, being a group of full-timers, prefer long term residents, although we do offer seasonal rates for temporary tiny house dwelling.  Yes, there are both full-time and part-time guests in our village. We often have rental agreements for monthly, seasonal or annual parking. We are flexible to accommodate our guests as much as possible. We want you to feel like family in our community!

What are your rates to rent a lot for my tiny house?

Regular Monthly: $385 plus electric
Waterfront Monthly: $425 plus electric
Weekly: $225 includes electric
Daily rates are also available.

We honor "Passport America" club discounts.
Waterfront sites cannot be discounted.

What hook-ups are included at each tiny home rental site?

All of our tiny home parking sites come with full hook ups. Each one has standard water and sewer hook-ups. Electricity is metered separately. Electricity is available in 30 amp, 50 amp and some 100 amp service poles. Trash collection is included.

Do you have 50 amp service available for my tiny home hook-up?

Most sites at Gracious Tiny House Park are wired with both 30 and 50 amp service available. We even have some that are able to accommodate 100 amp and 200 amp tiny homes!

What amenities are there for the park guests to use?

As an established park, we have built several amenities:

Boat Ramp
Boat Docks
Nature Trail
Fully Fenced
Boat and Trailer storage

What are the park's demographics?
What age group are most guests?

We have a variety of ages living/visiting our Tiny House Community.
Most are mid-life adults: from their mid-40s to retirees.
At the time of this writing, there are 2 families with school-age children, a teenager & some adult singles. We have residents who work full-time, fish part-time & love life here full time!

What improvements are going on?

Gracious Tiny House Park has relocated. This website is based on the old location. Please contact us for more information about exciting changes to make our community more Tiny House Friendly, more community oriented, and more like a family village.

Can I bring my dog to live in my tiny home?
Are there pet restrictions at your tiny house village?

We are pet friendly and ask everyone to pick up after their pets and keep them on a leash in public areas. Vicious/malicious dogs are not allowed.

How can I tour your park before I arrive?

 You'll get a better feel for our park by watching our  video, (filmed in the middle of summer when there were many unoccupied lots and very few cars around). During the winter months we are more full, when our "snowbirds" return year after year. We've had people come because they saw the video on YouTube and now they've decided to make this their winter retreat. 

Are there organized activities?

During the "season" we enjoy pot luck dinners together bi-weekly, weekly bingo, bible study, & periodic sing-alongs and a community breakfast. This year we're looking forward to 2 couples who are musicians & will play some country music and/or bluegrass in the clubhouse. We have a billiards table, ping pong, jigsaw puzzles, fitness cycles & hand weights, big screen tv, couch, rocking chairs & banquet tables with seating for about 100 or more (biggest pot luck last year was 50 people), community kitchen, 2 laundry rooms, 2 pairs of bathrooms/showers, boat ramp, boat docks, fish cleaning station, tiki hut, free WiFi, book exchange, and of course our beautiful pool. (It's not heated, altho we're working on a eco-friendly solution to come)

What size are the lots?

Gracious park is several years old, having been started in the 1960's but added to over the years. Because of that incremental growth, not all of our sites are of equal dimensions. Almost all the sites have a concrete pad/patio next to the spot to park the RV unit. There is one section of the park where side-by-side sites have an 8x20 concrete pad, parking for the unit plus a car; another area has pads that measure 10x20 plus unit and parking spot. The waterfront sites are generally end-to-end rather than side-to-side, so there is room for the unit & the concrete patio but parking would be opposite each unit along the clubhouse. (This is where the written descriptions become cumbersome and visiting in person becomes more clarifying.) A few of the sites have a tree on them, although most are clear.

What types of units do you have at Gracious?

We've had campers, pop-ups, C-class, A-class (bus style), 5th wheels, mobile home trailers, and now Tiny Houses on Wheels (THOWs). Generally speaking, we can accommodate up to a 40 ft rig.

Do you allow composting toilets?

Yes. They must be properly maintained. We will have a compost bin in the community garden area.

Do you upkeep the lawn?

Yes, we mow all the lawn in the park, on sites & around common areas, and weed-whack (if the site is not cluttered). The more challenging sites have opted to get their own weed-whackers but that is optional.

What's it like living full time in an RV or Tiny House at Gracious?

The sites are clean & groomed.
We have some brand new 40 foot rigs in the park as well as some much older trailers.
You can always find someone out & about to talk to, either tossing in a laundry, making a few casts to see what's biting, or around the tiki hut or pool; or you can keep to yourself, sit on the swing, or enjoy the sunset over the water. It's not a busy park, it's not tourist-y, it's not crowded, it's not loud, we don't have loud music & late night parties, but a few of us do enjoy sitting around the fire pit and sipping an adult beverage and looking up at an amazingly brilliant sky full of stars (There's no lights over the 750 sq mile Lake O). The park is not too small, not too big. Like Goldilocks would say, "it's just right."


What's the vision for Gracious Tiny House Park in the coming years?

We have 75 sites, about 30 of which are full-time residents here. As of Spring 017 we currently have three full time Tiny Housers on premises in addition to the little Cottage Camper. There is a THOW being built on site as well.  (The building process is being documented and shared through  Feel free to follow the build.
We are hoping that we grow to about 10 Tiny Houses and as the community develops we can decide if we want to all live in one section and separate it with a pretty white vinyl fence & landscaping around it or if we'll each choose our site location anywhere in the park (as we do now).

As mentioned before, we're also open to creating a community garden, compost bin and we're already planning a large fire ring out by the waterfront on my lot. (I live at site next to the fish cleaning area).

We're also open to other ideas and input from the Tiny Community.

What are your rules for the tiny house community members?

We do have some rules to keep our community clean, comfortable and safe. The complete list of rules will be posted here soon, but generally speaking, they are very common rules as you would find at most RV parks accepting tiny houses.

What is the registration procedure and how much advance notice do you require?

We currently have several lots available between May-October and therefore we do not require advance reservations; but if you are seeking to place your tiny house on our land for long-term or live in it full time, it is advisable to make your reservation request a month or more ahead of season.

We can send you a pre-registration form via email. Please contact us for more information.
