About Tin Can Acres
The 1959 Imperial Villa is one of the largest and most luxurious trailers produced by Spartan Aircraft Co. This fully-restored vintage park model (10'x45', triple axle) offers all the comforts of home with amazing original mid-century modern furnishings. Step back in time and experience the beauty and tranquility of simpler days on our 11-acre, mostly-wooded homesite. Constructed of aircraft aluminum, the all-original interior is birch accented by walnut and brass. Almost all the furnishings are period pieces, fascinating to see and experience -- like entering a hands-on museum from the 1950s. Nestled in the trees and surrounded on all sides by curtained windows, the interior living space has an open, yet cozy feeling. There's a full-sized bathtub/shower, a full-sized & fully equipped kitchen (though it is not fully stocked with food), an on-demand hot water heater, and a two-ton heat pump which thermostatically controls the climate.

The vibe at Tin Can Acres
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We couldn't have had a better experience at Tin Can Acres! I stayed over the weekend with three of my girl friends and we had a BLAST hanging out in the airstream, swinging in the hammock, and running around the 11 acres exploring.
When we arrived, we were greeted by Steve and his wife who gave us a grand tour – they were so accommodating and even gave us a list of all their records to choose which we would like to use during our stay. Since they live close by on the property, they were available to help in anyway we needed. The home was very clean and decorated so thoughtfully; we could really tell how passionate the owners were about this airstream and how much effort went into making it the perfect little getaway. All the decorations, furniture, kitchenware, utensils... everything was mid-century and matched perfectly!
Tin Can Acres was the perfect place for our girls weekend, but would be great for couples and families as well. it was the perfect getaway and I hope to visit again soon! :D
