Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina
Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina

Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina has always been a popular destination for travelers seeking a convenient and idyllic location from which to explore the nearby Florida Keys and all their attractions. The resort itself sits on the 75-acre Ohio Key in the Lower Florida Keys. The resort has a host of amenities and activities for both land and water lovers, which includes a marina, swimming pool, fishing opportunities, an outdoor pavilion, game room, horseshoe courts, pickleball courts and of course, the scenery. Think: scenery that includes plenty of palm trees, blue skies, and ocean views.

What makes a stay at Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina even more exciting these days is the addition of a tiny house village which offers unique accommodations for your Floridian getaway. Located on Ohio Key, these colorful tiny houses are just 30 miles from Key West and minutes from Bahia Honda State Park. Each house is full of personality and charm and makes for the ultimate relaxation destination.

Bahia Honda State Park, at over 500 acres, has a fabulous beach (named one of the best for sunbathing), the historic Bahia Honda Rail Bridge (perfect for photo ops and scenic views), and swimming, kayaking and snorkeling opportunities. Stay all day and catch the sunset – it’s well worth it!

While on Big Pine Key, don’t miss the National Key Deer Refuge, which was established in 1957 to protect the Key deer and other Keys wildlife. The Refuge includes freshwater wetland and mangrove forests and is home to 23 endangered plant and animal species. The Key Deer can only be found in the Florida Keys.

Islamorada, which is about 45 miles from Sunshine Key, is home to the History of Diving Museum where visitors can see one of the largest collections of diving gear, including helmets, armored suits, as well as photos and other diving-related memorabilia. The museum’s mission is to tell man’s story of exploring the sea and they do a great job through the exhibits, collections, and videos.

If feeding a tarpon is on your bucket list, head over to Robbie’s of Islamorada. Schools of tarpon, numbering upwards of 100, like to congregate around the marina providing the perfect opportunity for visitors to toss a snack or two to these “silver kings.” For just the price of admission ($2.25 per person) and $4 for a bucket of fish, you can experience this unique, aquatic, must-do.

Robbie’s is also the perfect place to schedule other water adventures including parasailing, snorkeling, jet-skiing, and deep-sea fishing excursions. Robbie’s also has an open-air market that sells jewelry, beachwear, art and more. Grab a bite to eat at the Hungry Tarpon restaurant and relax and enjoy Robbie’s experience.  

After exploring the Keys, come back to your colorful and cozy tiny home, settle in and say goodnight to a great day!

A Bit of Bavaria Stateside!

Leavenworth Tiny House Village
Leavenworth Tiny House Village

Cold-weather playground, unique holiday destination, plenty of ways to experience nature…these are phrases that describe Bavaria, a state in southwestern Germany, which is roughly 4,000-5,000-plus miles across the Atlantic. Definitely a charming destination with its snow-capped mountains, quaint villages, cultural offerings, and generous hospitality.

But if you don’t have the time (or the funds) to make a trek across the pond this winter season, why not check out the USA’s own little bit of Bavaria, otherwise known as Leavenworth, Washington. Nestled in the Cascade Mountains, Leavenworth is a Bavarian-styled village that is all about doing things Alpine-style. And once the winter season begins, the town explodes with more snow-filled activities and holiday events than you can imagine. There’s cross-country skiing, sledding, downhill skiing, ice fishing, snow tubing, sleigh rides, a Christkindlmarkt, a Christmas Lighting Festival, a cookie crawl, and more, all set among the most beautiful little Bavarian-style backdrop you can imagine this side of the Atlantic!  

To make your visit to Leavenworth even more enchanting, stay at the Leavenworth Tiny House Village in your choice of five uniquely Bavarian-styled tiny houses. Combine a Tiny House stay with all the charm of Leavenworth and you’ll be guaranteed a Bavarian-styled experience without even needing your passport!

Tuxbury Tiny House Village – Opening Spring 2018

Introducing… Henry, Clara, Emerson, Murphy, and Riley, the newest additions to Petite Retreats! These five tiny houses live at the Tuxbury Pond RV Resort. Wickedly clever and full of character, these tiny houses all have their own personalities, catering to every kind of adventurer who walks through their doors.

Emerson
Emerson

Emerson

“A modern innovator, Emerson is a creator in every sense of the word. As a child, he gravitated toward activities that involved building and learning how things worked. Truth be told, not much has changed. He’s a professional tinkerer and hasn’t met something he couldn’t fix. In his free time, he enjoys fixing up vintage appliances and selling them in his shop and online store. His goal each day is to make what’s old new again!”

Murphy
Murphy

Murphy

“Murphy makes the ultimate buddy. He remains by his friends’ side through thick and thin and consistently puts others before himself. His true passion in life is anything and everything to do with sports, and he hosts the best viewing parties. Because of this, he is the best person to have on your sports themed trivia team. Murphy is someone you can grab a drink and chat with for hours, preferably while sailing or fishing.”

 

Riley
Riley

Riley

“A modern day Rosie the Riveter, Riley is a go-getter in all aspects of life. She stands up for what she believes in and does so gracefully. She is involved in local politics and specializes in civil rights. To unwind, she travels and explores whatever city she finds herself in. She prefers to go off the beaten path and always finds the extraordinary in the ordinary. A lesser-known fact about Riley is that she loves karaoke and does a killer rendition of ‘Born in the U.S.A.’”

Henry & Clara
Henry & Clara

Henry

“Henry is an inventor with a vision ahead of his time. While he’s a true industrialist, he has his roots in engineering. Henry loves racing, and his interest in cars is one of a kind. In time, he hopes to combine his love for engineering with his love of racing. However, with all of the races he’s attended, he still believes the greatest day of his life is the one he married his wife, Clara.”

Clara

“Clara is the friend you can count on to cheer you on as you chase your wildest ambitions. She is never too far from her partner in crime, her husband, Henry, as they lived down the road from each other and have been married for years. After growing up on a farm, Clara became a wonderful cook and gardener. When she’s not spending time with her family or tending to the garden, Clara is dancing through life, taking on one adventure after another.”
