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.

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

Tin can acres is great! It was everything that I was expecting and more and would definitely recommend! The host go above and beyond to make the stay super relaxing and stressfree. Everything in the trailers is put together with originality in mind but still is all functional.

Our stay was everything we wanted and more! We wanted a relaxing weekend on a cross country road trip that would be safe to stay in during COVID. We felt like we were camping in a campground but had the entire place to ourselves. Very peaceful and the hosts added lottle touches to make the stay extra special. We loved reading the TIME magazines from the 60s and learning more about airstreams on the booklets provided. The location was closw enough to the main roads that any errands for more drinks or ice only took 20 minutes round trip. We will definitely stay again if we come through this area.

The camper was incredibly cute and well thought out. We were blown away by the attention to detail and the dreamy 50's decor. Everything was very clean and the host was kind and accommodating. There was even firewood and kindling for the fire pit. We had a lovely, relaxing weekend and will definitely recommend this spot to friends and family.
