Hike on a secluded property, relax in a hot tub heated by an internal wood stove, sleep under the stars, wake up surrounded by nature and enjoy a tiny house covered in glass at an Airbnb just south of Atlanta.
Parker & Rachel Boice are the masterminds behind the Tiny Glass House.
“We’ve always been risk-takers,” Rachel Boice told WSBTV.com’s Nelson Hicks. “We had talked about getting into experiential rentals for about a year and a half before we actually started. After staying in other rentals ourselves, we decided it was something we wanted to do.”
The Tiny Glass House sits on 100 acres in Henry County. There are other Airbnbs on the property, but Boice said the only time you will see other people is on the road or the trails. The property features more than two miles of maintained trails that guests are welcome to use. Don’t be surprised to see deer, turkeys, rabbits, butterflies and more on a hike.
The property includes a few creeks, one of which runs along the property and is the perfect spot for wading.
“These rentals have brought so much joy to us. We designed and built them during a very challenging time for us, and in many ways, they are the very thing we wish we had while going through adversity: a peaceful, secluded place to focus on the things that matter,” Parker Boice said.
The couple built the Tiny Glass House with the intent of using it as an Airbnb rental. They own another rental on the property and their plan is to grow the Tiny Glass House empire, opening some in several southeast cities in the years to come. Their more immediate goal is to have a community of them in north Georgia in the next year.
“We love being a part of people’s travel plans and providing a special place for them to relax and unwind,” Rachel Boice said. “My favorite part of the experience is looking up through the glass and seeing a starry night. It’s breathtaking.”
“Perfect for the little getaway we needed,” guest Becca noted in her review. “We enjoy soaking in the tub and watching the stars with a nice bonfire to top it all off! Definitely on our list of places to go back to!”
The tiny house is off the grid. Electricity comes from a supplied 1000-watt battery. There’s a propane cooktop, cooler, 30-degree sleeping bags, games and lanterns. There’s a bathhouse behind the tiny house that includes a toilet and cold water shower. Romantic string lights adorn the property.
“Our goal in this is to be able to bring camping to those who may not have the gear or experience to do so,” Parker Boice said. “We provide guides on how to start fires, how to use the hot tub, and other helpful tips.”
“My wife had never camped before and this glamping was the best anyone could ask for first-timers to ease into,” guest Neelotpal noted in his review.
High Falls State Park is about 20 minutes from the Tiny Glass House. The park offers kayaking, canoeing, hiking, fishing, swimming, picnicking, boating and the tallest cascading waterfall south of Atlanta.
Overnight stays at the Tiny Glass House start at $79 per night plus cleaning fees and taxes.
