No single photo does justice to the Toy Box room at Adventure Inn B&B. It has too many angles and vantage points to take it all in….
A view from the alcove doesn’t capture how expansive the room is. Nearly 500 square feet.
A wide-angle sweep showing the room’s many angles, its cathedral ceiling, skylights, and gleaming
oak floor misses how intimate and romantic the bed is, framed by plaid silk drapes. Nor does it show how comfortable the sofa alcove is for reading and lake-watching.
A photo of the alcove, with its 10 feet of windows, offers only a glimpse of the inspiring view of deck, beach and lake.
Most guests make their own fun while staying in the Toy Box, but anyone stuck for ideas will find a 37-inch TV, cable with Comcast On Demand, Blu-Ray DVD player, CD player, Scrabble, Uno, deck of cards, puzzles, books — and did we mention the three working antique slot machines? Quarters and nickels are provided.
The room is filled with original toy train-themed watercolor paintings, artist’s proof prints and posters acquired during Captain Adventure’s tenure as president of Lionel Trains Inc. Most of the art is by
Angela Trotta Thomas. There’s also a Lionel engine or two.
The adjacent private bath — called The Caboose — has a custom stall shower with bench and Pewabic accent tiles. Original train art by Michigan artist Paul H. Adams is so highly detailed that most people don’t realize it’s an air-brushed watercolor.
