In the past, we've had campers, C-class, A-class, 5th wheels, and mobile home trailers and Tiny Houses. Going forward we are growing our number of Tiny Houses on Wheels (THOWs). Depending on the site, we can accommodate up to a 35-40 ft rig!
Do you allow composting toilets?
Do you upkeep the lawn?
What's it like living full time
in Florida in an RV or Tiny House
at Gracious Community?
We encourage each resident to maintain and improve their yard and rig. We have newer large rigs in the park as well as some older mobile homes.
You can always find someone out & about to talk to, making a few casts to see what's biting, or you can keep to yourself, sit on the gazebo, or enjoy the sunset over the water. It's not a busy park by any means. 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 are growing our Tiny House population and as the community develops we can decide if we want to all live in one section with landscaping around it or if we'll each choose our site location anywhere in the park (as we do now). We're also open to other ideas and input from the Tiny Community. What's your suggestion?
We'd like to see many "tiny housers" living comfortably, economically in our country casual setting ... some Victorian, some Modern, some Traditional and some ol' Classic Cottage ... each with their own little pathway to their porch with a variety of tropical plantings to add a personal touch. The garden area could be a place where you reenergize by physically connecting with nature. How great would it be to share the fruits of the harvest with one another. We could have a picnic gathering at the gazebo for a weekend afternoon. How about a little story telling around a campfire on a nice cool "winter" evening? We could exchange tips on herbal remedies, organic growing techniques, building methods, recipes, childhood memories, creative storage solutions, old world crafts ...
As of Autumn 2022 we have seven full time Tiny Housers on premises in addition to the little Cottage Camper which takes our Leasing Manager around to the Tiny House Festivals in Florida. One of them is shared through facebook.com/TakeMeHomeTinyHouse
Feel free to check out the build process.
How close are you to the nearest city?
We are within one mile of a convenience store/gas station and Dollar General. The "city" of Okeechobee is more like a town. It's only 6 miles away, and has everything you could need:
Food stores (Publix / Winn Dixie / Aldi's)
RV parts stores
CVS/Walgreens/local drug stores
City Hall/Registrar/Tag Office
Fast food (all the common ones)
Whole food markets
What are your rules for the tiny house community members?
We do have some rules to keep our community clean, comfortable and safe. The updated set of park rules is available from our Leasing Manager, 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?
If you are seeking to place your tiny house on our land for long-term or live in your tiny home full time, it is advisable to contact us at least a few months or more ahead of time. Being long-term lots for our tiny houses, upcoming availability for tiny home parking in our Florida community has a slow turn-over. Being such a small park, we are often full and have a small waiting list for Tiny Houses. It is best to contact us for availability.
We can send you a pre-registration form via email. Please contact us for more information.
