Our trailer (named Wilma) is the perfect place for those seeking a comfortable nature get-away in Homer. Situated on the ridgeline, the trailer is privy to sweeping views of Cook Inlet & the Alaska Range. Magnificent sunsets can be enjoyed from the privacy of the covered deck. This clean, fully-outfitted trailer is a way to experience Alaska without pitching a tent or sacrificing luxury. Some call it 'glamping'. If you don't have a large budget or lofty expectations then this spot is for you!
While this 18-foot, 1978 Wilderness camper trailer may be considered 'retro', it has been well-maintained and updated with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The trailer has a full kitchen, bathroom with a tub shower, eating/sitting area, closet, refrigerator, microwave, and heat. Adjoining the kitchen/sitting area is a double bed. The space is ideal for individuals or couples, though an extra person could be accommodated if you don't mind being cozy. There is an additional hide-away bed that pulls down above the double bed. This offers storage or a sleeping space for smaller people or children. Please note the overhead clearance is quite small in this space. The dining area could be converted to an alternate sleeping space to accommodate a larger adult.
We provide french press coffee, tea, and creamer.
The trailer is located in a private setting on our 5-acre property with drive-up parking. It is permanently parked beneath an overhead roof with a covered deck. There are deck chairs, lounge table, and a small propane BBQ for your use.
We are located 1 mile from the Homestead hiking trail, 1.5 miles from the Diamond Creek trail/beach, and 5 miles from downtown Homer.
Other things to note
Two things that may be different:
1. The toilet. While it is a standard water-flush toilet, it empties into a holding tank instead of the septic system. We manually empty the tank after guests. We have had no complaints or odors from guests, but it is important to note that this is an RV-style toilet.
2. The shower. Due to the Alaska winters, the camper is not permanently plumbed in. Instead, the trailer has a 50-gallon tank. This should be plenty for your stay, assuming no long, sauna-like showers. Not to worry, though! Should you run out, we will refill it.
My husband and I live onsite and may stop-by to check on your stay. We are avid outdoor recreators and would love to give you any local advice on your visit to Homer.
Greetings, my name is Stacey. My story is similar to many Alaskan transplants. The first time I visited Alaska was for the experience. I was studying seabird colonies on the remote Pribolof and Aleutians Islands. The second time I came I had recently graduated college and needed the money. The third time I came I simply didn't fit in anywhere else, hence I knew I found my home. I have been happily calling Homer 'home' ever since. I am enthralled with the beauty and lifestyle Alaska presents. When not busy with my professional life in marine science, I can be found hiking, running, paddling or biking across Alaska, or spending time growing, fishing, and hunting for my food.
