This timber frame structure is on the edge of a 2-acre pond surrounded by a muskeg meadow bordered by a spruce forest. Campers can enjoy swimming in the pond, bird watching, and simply relaxing around a campfire in this very private setting.

The "bughouse" (mostly free of mosquitoes) as the owners like to call it, has a woodstove with wood provided, two new camp cots, and a lot of windows so bring your nightshades for your eyes! There is an outhouse located about 200 yards from the campsite.

The owners Carol and Wally live on the property nearby the campsite and use the pond for swimming and boating. Otherwise, your space will be very private. Although there are no visible neighbors, it is located in a rural setting with neighbors a quarter of a mile or so away.

The eating area is outdoors but the picnic table can easily be placed inside the sleeping space for rainy situations.

Penny Pond was once the site of a music camp for local Homer and Anchor Point kids. The owners, Carol and Wally, are entrepreneurs who run a health coaching business, a music studio in nearby Homer, and a woodshop.

Penny Pond property is in a state of creative construction, with a working sawmill and a wood shop where Wally builds furniture, cabinets, boats, and currently a new tiny house. Having lived and worked on this former homestead property since the 1980's, Carol and Wally love to share stories of their adventures and life in Alaska.

Penny Pond is less than ten minutes from the Diamond Creek biking and hiking trail with beach access. Or you can head 5 miles in the other direction and you're at the Anchor River State Park and a lovely beach.

We have loads of ideas for outdoor activities should you need any and look forward to meeting you and helping to make your Alaskan vacay a fun outdoor experience.
