Welcome Home: Creek Walk, A Tiny Home Community…
Looking to downsize? Check out Creek Walk Tiny Homes where cleaning becomes a breeze and yard work is non-existent. I’ll say that louder for the people in the back – yard work is non-existent! Sign me up.
In times such as these, many have adopted a new outlook. Less is more.
One short mile from the bustling metropolis of Travelers Rest, and minutes from downtown Greenville, you’ll find Creek Walk tucked in the shadow of the mountains. The Swamp Rabbit Trail is just a quick walk (or bike ride) away.
These tiny homes have under 400 square feet, with optional lofts and porches. Most of the homes in this community are permanent, but there are a few on wheels. A number of homes are available to rent for visitors interested in a move to the perfect Piedmont, or just looking for a mountain get-away.
Priced to sell, these tiny homes are a steal, starting from the $80s. Low village fees include electricity, water, sewer, trash, property maintenance, and even wi-fi at the community center.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to spend a weekend at Creek Walk. I spent the better part of my childhood camping several (hundred) times a year in an RV, but for some reason, I was nervous. Don’t ask me why – maybe I’m not so comfortable with the unknown. I’ve never even seen a tiny home. Or maybe I watch too much true crime television and spending multiple nights “alone in the woods” wasn’t something I would typically rush to sign up for.
My apprehension immediately melted away as I drove onto the property. I blinked. One minute I was in Travelers Rest, and the next I was driving across the canvas of my favorite painting. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I arrived at sunset.
The gravel drive is long. Once I made it to the paved circle, I saw a set of grandparents walking beside little Goldilocks on her tricycle. Another couple was sipping coffee on their front porch. Both scenes made me smile, and I knew I was home. At least for a few days.
I could not have ordered a more perfect weekend. The vibe was calm, quiet and cozy. With the tall ceilings and full kitchen, I didn’t miss the extra space. Being a single mom, I can definitely see myself jumping on the minimalistic bandwagon.
Don’t take our word for it. Next time you’re in the area, cross over the trail and cruise through Creek Walk Tiny Homes. We would love to hear your thoughts. Better yet, visit their website and book a stay!
