A great experience! I stayed in #3, a 1951 Airstream that's been impeccably maintained. It was spotless and super-cute,and while trudging to the community bathroom wasn't so fun, I knew about it going in- if you'll be bothered by that, choose a trailer that includes a toilet/shower. Bisbee is a quirky place, so go full-on quirky and stay at the... More

We stayed just the one niught in a 1951 "Royal Mansion" trailer. Built by Spartan, this is 35 ft long, weighs nearly 3 tons, and cost $4,750 new. We watched Lucille Ball (and Desi) in "The long, long trailer" on a b&w TV; listened to to 50s music on a real old radio; brewed coffe in q 50 year old... More

First off, this is by no means an RV Park. It is a fun lodging which consists of vintage trailers (also a bus and a boat) which have been refurbished and outfitted with accessories from the appropriate years which run from the late 40's to the 50's. The trailers range in size and facilities. Some don't have bathrooms but there... More

Spent a two-day getaway in Bisbee, AZ and needed a spot to spend the night. Had seen reviews of The Shady Dell in the newspaper and online and decided to give it a try. What a fun experience. We reserved the "Mansion" as it had an indoor bathroom (many of the trailers do not have bathrooms, requiring a quick trip... More

We arrived Friday for Valentines Day and booked the Chris Craft Yacht. Omg this was so much fun. There was Champaign chilling for when we arrived. The old record player was fun to play some old tunes also the cool kitchen and the bed was fun to sleep in. Our friends stayed in the Mansion and where jealous! Cool part... More

We arrived Friday evening and the park was awaiting us with 50s music playing in the background of the property and the same ambient music in our trailer. The refrigerator, stove, TV and record player were authentic and usuable, as well as the full shower and toilet included in the layout of the Airfloat. Make sure to play the records... More

Spent two nights in a 1949 Airstream trailer at the Shady Dell. What a great little place. Everything effort has been made to catapult you back into the 50s. It was peaceful and comfortable and well situated too. Erie Avenue just across the main road is very interesting and the Bisbee Breakfast Club is a great place for a major... More

We stayed at The Shady Dell for one night on our honeymoon tour of the US. The Tiki bus was so cute and we really enjoyed the stay. It was different. I was really worried that there would be insects and spiders on the bus but there wasn't. Dots Diner isn't open anymore and the nearest restaurant and shops are... More

My husband and I had wanted to visit Shady Dell for several years. We are so happy that we finally did. What a unique experience. The vintage trailers (we stayed in the Mansion) were just as expected, right down to the 1959 Life magazine and 1951 high school yearbook for our browsing. The period TV and radio added to the...

From the moment we were welcomed by Jan with ice cold drinks this stay was a delight. The trailer we stayed in was immaculate and a real trip down memory lane for us. We wished we had booked more nights. The town of Bisbee was also very interesting and welcoming.
