Our tiny houses are just fun! Who would ever think that so much living could happen in such a small space. Staying in a tiny house causes you to rethink a lot of your notions about what a home really is. There's so little to care for, that you're freed to do all kinds of things, like walk in the woods or fish in the reservoir behind the farm. And although "cozy" isn't a word we're supposed to use when describing houses, because it let's people know the house is small - in this case, who cares! They are called "tiny" - that's about as obvious as you can get! And they are cozy, comfortable, convenient and a clever use of your travel money. So y'all come!

This location was incredible. It felt like a home away from home, and Bill & Mary were incredible hosts. The amount of activities there are to do on Thus Far Farms guarantees fun for the whole family, and the isolation of the campsites ensures relaxation and privacy. I highly recommend this spot, and would consider staying there again some time soon!

An exterior shot of the cabin on a sunny morning. The interior decorations and features are warm and welcoming, and make you feel right at home. Includes a full size bed in the upstairs loft, and a pull out futon.Interacting with a few of the goats local to the farm. The hosts are excellent and describing them to guests! A fully-stocked kitchen includes utensils for cooking your favorite meal and making coffee in the morning.

The trip to the Tiny House was truly the best GETAWAY ever! I have traveled quite a bit, and can honestly say that this was the most relaxing, low-key trip I've ever had. I had always preferred the beach, until staying here. The Tiny House is in the woods, it's naturally beautiful, serene, and peaceful. There is a small Creek just in front of the house, and you can hear it's gentle trickle. Even though it is off-grid, I never felt like I was missing anything. The water pressure and hot water availability were better than some nice hotels where I've stayed. The hosts, Bill and Mary, are precious people, and clearly put thought into every aspect of the Tiny House design. There are plenty of lights and fans, and the propane-powered refrigerator was big enough for our needs. The kitchen has plenty of storage areas and nice cookeware, the 4-burner propane stove was perfect.

The primary purpose of this trip was to truly unplug, along with my 12 and 14-year old children. Even though there is a generator that could be used to charge or power devices, I didn't mention that to them. They had a great time! We all enjoyed the simple things like going to the nearby pond, feeding the ducks, skipping rocks, and playing in the woods. There are also several National Parks nearby with beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails, which we thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, the visits to the farm were educational and fun. Thus Far Farm is near Clemson, and would be an ideal place to stay for Clemson sporting events.

We scheduled our next visit before we even left! Looking forward to going I the fall to see the leaves change.

Just to let future guests see that it is a regular shower. Great water pressure and more than enough hot water.The instructions above the composting toilet. It was not an issue, as it wasn't smelly, and was emptied daily.My kiddos and the unlikely farm dog "Ponder". He was one of the highlights for the kids, very sweet dog.My kiddos and the unlikely farm dog "Ponder". He was one of the highlights for the kids, very sweet dog.

We spent two nights at Fern Creek Tiny House for a weekend getaway and enjoyed the numerous local area waterfalls. We had a great time and Bill & Mary were wonderful hosts. We highly recommend Fern Creek Tiny House. It is a wonderful place to relax and recharge. We would consider staying there again some time soon!

Words can not describe how wonderful our time was at the Fern Creek tiny house. Mary and Bill (and of course their dogs Ponder and Lola) greeted us upon arrival and I could tell right away this was going to be a great stay. Mary had so kindly answered all my questions ahead of time. Bill escorted us to our adorable little house in the woods and gave us a quick tour of the cabin, generator, firepit, etc. This was a Thanksgiving trip for my daughter and I. We brought everything we needed to make, as we affectionately called it, our very own tiny thanksgiving feast in our tiny house. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch swing while our dinner cooked and several nice walks through the woods and along the stream. I could go on and on because our wonderful memories go on and on.
