Have you ever visited a tiny house community? If you are interested in living in one or just curious, you can visit Tiny Estates in Elizabethtown, PA. It is a new tiny house resort community created by Abby Hobson, a young entrepreneur with a passion for experience making. With the help of her team, including on-site manager and tiny dweller, Cody, Abby is creating a beautiful village for those looking to try out tiny living or a place to call home.
Tiny Estate offers daily tours of their community and a selection of their tiny houses rentals. They now also have many long-term parking spots available. For more on the community concept and development process, read my original post from my visit there this past spring. I am delighted to see that Tiny Estates now has 18 short-term tiny house rentals for guests to choose from— more to come! Choose from 130 to 379 square feet. The design and style each of tiny house is distinct, from modern to farmhouse chic. Imagine staying in each one to learn what size, layout, and features you like the best. A smart, fun way to research the tiny home of your dreams.
The Chairman is swanky 10′ wide tiny house with a spacious kitchen and living area. It features a kitchen island that transforms into a dining room table. The Adventurer is an airy, modern 272 square foot tiny house with a shed roof and roomy loft. The downstairs living space features a Murphy bed that folds down over the couch and coffee table to create a second sleeping area. Fun fact: this tiny house with a big personality is also known the Kevin Hart House, as featured on Booking.com. It was built by the Pennsylvania based builder, Liberation Tiny Homes.

Did you know Liberation Tiny Homes recently collaborated with Lancaster County (home to Tiny Estates) to develop a tiny house community planning guide for the local municipalities? It very thoroughly presents various zoning and building code classifications that can be used to place tiny houses and embrace them as a viable housing solution.
Living Large and Luxuriously
The Eagle is a charming, modern 285 square foot tiny house. It features a full-size bathtub, perfect for relaxing bubble baths. The Vision is a luxurious 37′ gooseneck tiny house with an open floor plan that goes on for days. For those who aren’t fans of crawling into bed, you will love the full height loft– no ducking required! It was built by an up and coming builder, Roughcut Tiny Homes.
