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 in the background of the trailer while sitting in chairs facing the community. We met many people this way! Enjoy the simple, quiet life. Relax and enjoy.
There is also one spooky feature about this place with the rumors that it's haunted, and I often poo-poo those claims. However there is the backdrop of a cemetary that makes one uneasy... I had a continuous dream that a young girl was traveling down a hallway and wanted to tell me something, which scared me and startled me awake.
The owners, Jen and Justin, are awesome and have provided many details of the era, including period records to play on a 50s record player, an old tube TV, orignal refrigerator and stove, and authentic chair seating throughout the property.
What a wonderful experience and a way for fun getting to know our neighbors (turns out ours are 1/2 mile from us in Scottsdale, AZ!). There were particular details that impressed us. We encourage us to stay here!
