Located 20 minutes from downtown Lawrence, the Batch is a sustainable tiny house nestled in the cedar forests of Perry, KS. Decorated in a minimalist southwestern style, this tiny cabin is a serene and peaceful setting for souls seeking restoration, quiet, and the healing qualities of the woods. Or just a great place to getaway with your love or friends with an even greater view!

The space
UPDATE IN LIEU OF CORONAVIRUS:
We take pride in our every-flip cleaning practices between bookings to maintain a very clean and sanitary environment within the Batch, and want all to know that our devotion to creating this sanitary environment will not waiver for a moment. Please feel at ease as you book the Batch knowing that it will continue to be an exceptionally clean and safe space.

The Batch is 186sqft, a true tiny house built on an old hay wagon by local carpenter Cody Moore @ KeeneConstructs LLC. Set on 40 acres of beautiful wild woods and fields, cedar forests and ponds, the Batch sits on the edge of an old rock quarry meadow, lending extraordinary views to the West and an abundance of walking trails through varied terrain.

NOTE: This is rustic living. NO RUNNING WATER. (Drinking water provided in abundance). Fully outfitted kitchen with porcelain basin for dishes, with outgoing plumbing, but no incoming.
IMPORTANT: It is an “off-grid” experience and the tiny house is truly secluded on our back 40 acres. Which means that the road to access the Batch is still just a good old country dirt road. IE in rainy weather this road is not drivable, and must be walked back on foot. For most guests that experience these conditions it seems to set the tone for a fun off-grid adventure, however if this *possible* 300 yard (very muddy) walk back does not sound good to you, please do not book. Even in dry July I cannot promise a stray thunderstorm will not crop up and create a walk-back scenario.

*We do have a minimum age requirement of 24 years of age to book, for liability purposes.*

Outhouse as the bathroom.
Solar Panels as electrical source
AC/ French Press for Coffee / Propane Stove Top / Fridge / Propane Fireplace
Plush Hand Towels / Face cleansing wipes / Lotion
*No Shower*
The air conditioner is a window unit powered by a gas generator outside. If you are booking during the Kansas hot season (June-September), depending on the temps and length of stay, you will likely need to be comfortable refilling the generator with gas provided.

The loft is outfitted with a queen bed, and appropriate layers of bedding given the season. *Space is ideal for 1-2 guests, however up to 4 are welcome if you have a love of tents and are open to pitching one in any of the multiple spots in the cedar canopy woods. *Children also can easily sleep comfortably in the living room if advance notice is given, ground pads and lines can be provided

*Very Important* Firewood: Please plan to bring your own. We are no longer able to keep up with the high demand of firewood typically used during most bookings* Under NO circumstances do we allow guests to cut down tree limbs or branches (even those which appear dead) from the immediate forest in which the Batch sits. Lately we have had multiple guests disregard this simple request and it has been incredibly discouraging and has given us pause to consider removing our listing from Airbnb. So that we may continue to host, please respect our very simple rules.

We have a fun Add-On Package to offer!
The "Cozy Weather Fireside Package" which provides you with ample firewood and all the goodies essential for enjoying a cozy weather bonfire snuggled up with your favorite person, people, or just by yourself soaking in nature at its best! Must be requested and paid for at least 6 days prior to check-in date / / For photos and detailed description of package, check it out in our listing photos!

Rent a Kayak from us!
We have two kayaks (paddles, vests and two ratchet straps included) here at the tiny house which we are happy to rent out! We do not included transportation of the kayaks - only available to guests with roof racks, a truck, or sufficient means of transportation.
$15/per kayak for the duration of tiny house stay.
Honor System: Please leave cash in the black jar on the book shelf

I'm a Kansas native, spent some fun years living in WY, Montana, Idaho and eventually landed back here in the heartland - just couldn't stay away. Came home and married one tall, handsome man with kind eyes and the best beard this side of the Mississippi....and have found home at last! Making attempts at my own interior/floral design business, and loving any opportunity to work my creative magic in needy spaces. Danny and I have loved sharing the Backwoods Batch (tiny house on wheels) with any who stay in our little sanctuary amidst the cedars. What an awesome adventure sustainable living is in all the solitude, peace, and work it affords! The good life seems to be one spent outdoors as much as possible, working with my hands, building something worthy of love and devotion.

During your stay

More than happy to be available in person if necessary! Typically however we respect the fact that most individuals seeking out the Batch are here to do so as a personal or couples retreat; a retreat away from encounters, new meetings, socializing, and external energies. We respect space and privacy. It is rare that you will meet either of us unless requested. Take this time to recharge and soak up all the beauty! :)
