I love this sleepy little town, Spur, that I call home. There’s not much to do. Depending on where and when you drive through, you might think you’re in a ghost town. There’s 2 places to eat - 3 more if you drive 11 miles, grocery store, hardware store, etc. You would be able to find whatever you need. The landscape is beautiful and the sky at night is just awesome! It’s actually awesome all day long. There’s about 1/2 acre of land that is pretty level.
If you google me - Denise Rosner, Tiny House, Spur, TX - you’ll see that I was one of the first arrivals to the famous town that was the first to allow no limits on the size of your house during the timing of the Tiny House on wheels craze. In any case, you’ll see the house, land and me if you wish. I’ve found that being on the road in my RV is more what I want to do. So I’ll be Boondocking as well as hosting. 😁
Just be courteous and thoughtful of others. Do not leave any trash. Definite quiet time by 10pm. We will discuss any compensation if you want/need to hook up to electric.
It is open dirt/gravel land with patches of grass/weeds areas which can all be parked on. The property is surrounded by red dirt. It is hard so there’s no fear of getting stuck but it does get muddy when it rains. There are small mesquite branches and prickly goat weeds strewn over the land so you cannot ride a bicycle in this area without getting a flat tire. And be careful of you and yours feet.
Do not go through the fencing where it seems to be a driveway, the road is not good. Anywhere south of that fence along Jim Ave can be used to get up on the land, you’ll see flattened areas where this is easier, and you can also pull in next to carport. For that area next to carport you can also pull in from Third Street. Bigger rigs or whatever that might need a more level pull in onto the land, can use the dirt alley road between Max and Jim Aves.
Next to RV.
I’m usually out on the road myself and not home when the weather is either too hot or too cold but that’s not written in stone so feel free to check.
Besides the museum, if it’s open or the theatre, if it’s open and the few eateries, there is White River Lake about 15 miles away where you can eat, boat, swim, etc.
There’s a 9-hole golf course by our beautiful football stadium and event arena all in Swenson Park right here in Spur with sweeping views of the caprock mountains. Caprock Canyons State Park is an hour away but you can hike at Dickens Springs only 11 miles away. The topography in this area is just gorgeous. For major shopping such as Wal-Mart and eating of any kind, we here in Spur venture an hour away to Lubbock.
Travel blessings continue...…..meeting this lady has filled my heart with hope & joy for the future!
She has done so much to help revive this adorable, clean & friendly town! Denise lives with positive purpose in her life & I feel it was meant for us to meet (even though she'd just returned from 3 months on the road & was very busy).
I could go on & on about the wonderful experience of staying on this property (including the astronomical west Texas hailstorm) but I suggest you go try it out for yourself.
Thank you, Denise, & I'm looking forward to our adventures on the road!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our short visit with Denise. Learning about the “tiny house” happenings in Spur and Denise’s adventures in her class C was a delight. Thanks for your generosity.
I mention the host by her name as it is already made known in her host details. Denise met me upon arrival and got me situated on a flat spot next to her "Tiny Home." Spur, Texas has become known for inviting people from all over and all walks of life to move there and build their dream "tiny homes." Denise has had a hand in this movement. She narrated some very interesting stories of her time in Spur, Texas. She was very kind and hospitable. Wish I could have stayed longer and taken some daytime photos of the "tiny homes."
