Chris and I had the opportunity to get away for a few days. We chose to head north of the city, but still be within a quick drive if we needed to get back for any reason.
We discovered Aaron’s Gate properties and that they have a “Key West” themed cabin. We loved (L-O-V-E-D) Key West when we went and since we didn’t have time to make a trip to the real thing, we were excited to find a secluded cabin themed for a pretend beach trip.
This cabin was actually kind of perfect! It had a lot of water elements to satisfy the water soul in Chris, but trees and dirt and birds to satisfy the earth soul in me. I mean, seriously, how perfect is that?
We were greeted with a beautiful wreath welcoming us personally.
We walked in and were greeted with subtle caribbean spa music, rose petals and a beautiful cabin that captivated and serenaded us to a peace that was almost immediate. I had read that about the Aaron’s Gate’s cabins, but until I walked in, I didn’t understand the meaning of that immediate peace.
The table was set with parrot’s and caribbean colors. How adorable are those parrot napkin rings?!
This little guy was in the corner on a large floor arrangement.
We had champagne chilled and waiting on us. We also chose the package where we got to keep our champagne glasses.
Aaron’s Gate wants you to be completely relaxed and at peace. They don’t want to interrupt your solitude by having to deliver any meals you want, so they have it all there beforehand. Any stay has breakfast for the next day already to go (with instructions) – waffle batter, vanilla sauce, fruit and juice.
You can also have a dinner prepared beforehand (cost is extra). We chose grilled pork chops with sides, so that was already in the refrigerator and ready to be warmed.
(you can make a quick trip to Guthrie or Edmond for dinner if you choose)
An indoor dry heat sauna all set up with towels and instructions. There is also a hot tub on the attached, screened in porch, a shower for two and a whirlpool tub. Water souls will love this place!
The screened in porch that holds the hot tub and these adorable tall adirondack chairs. See the parrot’s perched?
Chris had a milk and honey and champagne bath set up for us (cost extra). I saved this for the second night and it was luxurious!
We went on a walk and I couldn’t resist more photos of the front of the cabin.
P.S. I will have a couple more blog posts coming up with photos from our walk and one of the other cabins.
We had our grilled pork chop dinner on the second night. Very yummy!
We had such a good time at the Parrot’s Cove cabin at Aaron’s Gate. We went mid week, so we truly had the whole place to ourselves. The cabins are spread far enough apart that I am sure even on weekends or when fully booked, you would still feel like you had the whole place to yourself.
There is satellite TV available. We didn’t watch much television (other than to track severe weather on day 2). We chose to listen to music and just enjoy each other’s company.
**there is also wi-fi available, but the signal isn’t really enough to get connected. AT&T had good cell service, after the storms blew over.
Aaron’s Gate check in is located in Edmond, OK and they give you directions to the cabins. I think it’s super secret, so I won’t disclose their location, but they are a quick drive on I-35. If you need a secluded get away, I think you should give it a try!
I linked to their website above, but need to state that they had no idea I would do a blog post and we were not compensated in any way for this blog post.
