Tiny Houses Communities In Louisiana

Living in a tiny house community can give you access to shared resources and allow for personal growth. Check out these intentional living communities in Louisiana and let us know of any others in the comments down below!

Burleigh Plantation: A Place for Tiny Homes

The Burleigh Plantation tiny home community is located in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, and was started by Karen McCoy. This tiny house village sits atop 4 acres of land and includes 11 tiny houses and an Antebellum-era house, originally called Burleigh Plantation.

The community was founded on the principal of coexisting and not doing life alone. Together, families in the village enjoy nights under the sky in the pavilion while grilling or just sitting by the fire pit listening to music. There are currently two tiny houses occupied with nine still available for new residents.

Karen was very intentional in designing the village so it does not look like an old RV or mobile home park, but, instead, a dreamy and classy tiny house village. Karen is currently seeking new members to join the community who share a desire to live simply and connect with people around them. If you are interested in joining the Burleigh Plantation community, you can find a contact form on their website.

Santosha Village

With plans prepared to be finalized in 2025, Santosha Village is a sustainable farming community, RV park, and integrated campground for those seeking financial freedom and an alternative way to live. The community seeks to present a radically different solution to the housing crisis.

Santosha Village is an intentional living community of RVs, tiny houses, and yurts of about 40 residents who pay a very affordable all-inclusive rent and help maintain the village. In return, they receive a supportive community and environment which they can call home, plus more than enough resources to cover basic needs.

Residents are required to give $600 per month, commit 4 to 6 hours of work per week, attend a monthly village meeting, and have a desire to help themselves and others. In return, residents receive private housing (3,500 sq ft) with a basic RV, utilities including water, electric, sewage, and free wifi, cooked meals and groceries, access to community cars, personal cell phone service, wellness and micro-business assistance programming, free laundry facilities and soap, and house maintenance. More information about Santosha Village can be found on their website.
