#cottagecore dreams? Look no further. With "modern rustic" outhouse composting toilet and thoughtfully designed, private outdoor showers, the Garden Cottage is approximately 200 sq. ft., heated and cooled, has a wet bar/kitchenette and a large front porch.

Note: We are 2 hours north of Orlando, near Worthington Springs Florida, not Lake Butler of Orlando. Please do not book us if you are seeking a space near Disney World.

The space
The Garden Cottage was formerly a humble garden shed, but, with the help of our resident Tiny House Expert, Mark, we refurbished the interior with a contemporary rustic design aesthetic. The cottage is best described as a studio space, ideal for a writer on retreat or a couple staging for a trip to the springs.

The bathroom and shower are separate from Garden Cottage, which is located on the backside of the building. The newly completed bath house structure features a rainfall shower head with natural surroundings and ample space for separate shower and changing areas. The bathroom includes a deep basin wash sink with a custom-made copper faucet. To help curb wasteful water use of traditional toilet facilities, a composting toilet is used. We will gladly give you a quick tutorial on its use and the benefits of composting.

If a composting toilet makes you uncomfortable in any way, please do not book the Garden Cottage. Our Tofu House has conventional plumbing for a comparable price.

Guest access
The barn, the trails, the pond, and gardens are all available for exploration.

Other things to note
Y'all means ALL at this farm. We appreciate your business and respect your humanity, no matter your race, sexuality, gender expression, or personal style.

Plant + animal lover, 9-5 professional (regrettably) with a farm stay side business and 21st-century trailer park commune. Every day we get a little close to building our dream: a comfortable, cozy farm stay where folks can relax, get a taste of homesteading, and spend time in nature.
