My husband and I spent the night in the Argosy "Adventure" for our 11yr wedding anniversary. We weren't sure what to expect staying in a trailer, but really wanted to experience something different and memorable. WOW, did we ever get that!
The hosts greeted us when we arrived and were warm and hospitable. They recommended a great little cafe for dinner and when we returned offered us movies to watch and reminded us about breakfast in the morning.
The Argosy itself is immaculate down to every detail. It is clean, gorgeous, and very vintage! The deck is built around it and leads to a curtained room(cabana) that has two sparkling clean and gorgeous side-by-side claw footed tubs. The weather when we stayed was in the 40's and COLD. We were brave though and used the tubs at night, AND in the morning and it was the most romantic thing we have done in a very long time. I opened the side curtain of the cabana in the morning and was surprised to see white-tail deer right off the deck. There are 2 plush robes in the trailer as well as a nice sofa that turns into a double bed. Despite that, my husband and I stayed in our own separate twin beds and held hands across the aisle. It was strangely romantic and sweet. They had a nice variety of movies we could borrow, two adorable dogs, many equally friendly guests, a cute little tree swing, and endless topics for conversation. I truly feel like David and Nancy invested a little of themselves in us, so much so that Nancy offered to be my grandmother since all of mine have passed and I miss having one. They are a blessing as is their bed and breakfast.
I certainly cannot end the review without talking about Nancys breakfast. It stared with a fresh tropical fruit salad in a beautiful stemmed glass sprinkled with toasted coconut. We then were served a gorgeous plate of a spinach egg bake, delicious sausage and hot from the oven oatmeal scones. Needless to say, I finished it ALL.
Troy and I will be back very soon and would recommend it to everyone we know.
