Poland natives Bartosz and Agnieszka Szatkowski cut the ribbon on their business, Lost Acres Tiny Home Community, in December. The 5-acre property is located near Bastrop State Park among Bastrop’s loblolly pine and oak trees.

The couple had the idea for the community in 2020, choosing Bastrop for the new development taking place in the area.

What to expect

The community is made up of eight 40-by-65-foot tiny home lots and two cottages. These tiny homes offer an alternative to apartment living amidst high housing prices, Bartosz Szatkowski said.

“We want to make sure that people are feeling [like] this is not [a] typical RV park where the houses could be brought and replaced,” Bartosz Szatkowski said. “This is a community.”

As a gated tiny home community, Lost Acres Tiny Home Community offers security for residents living alone and those who are away traveling.

“People are bringing their homes,” Agnieszka Szatkowski said. “They’re going stay there a long while.”

Also of note

The community offers upgraded power, underground cables and fiber-optic internet. Bird boxes and wildlife-friendly lights allow residents to experience Bastrop’s natural beauty.
