An event planner and a game designer walked into a bar...

This business was created in 2017 out of a love for weekends away at B&B's and table-top gaming.

Our Story

Aventure Away is a family-owned and operated business born out of a trip to St. Michaels, MD. We split our time playing Yoshi's Wooly World and Magic the Gathering at the local bar, and stayed at a charming Bed and Breakfast.  Happy hour was ending as we completed our third game of MTG, that was when we came up with the idea of a B&B experience unlike any other.  A weekend event where couples or friends enjoy games.

Meet the Founders

Apple Reese

Operations Director

BA in Theater, MA in Nonprofit Arts Management, 10 years of event planning experience

Apple's first love is theater; she has performed professionally in multiple productions.  Living 10 years outside the country has inspired her second love, travel.  She has made it a career goal to create event experiences unlike anything currently on the market.  It's her vision to make Adventure Away a weekend with your significant other or friends in a comfortable setting, roleplaying, without the stress of playing host.  Her pies are pretty stupendous, you won't want to pass up a piece.

Wayne Denier II

Creative Director

BA in Game Design, 12 years of game master experience

Wayne has been the dungeon master for over 40 modules over multiple campaigns. He prides himself on epic arcs, dynamic storytelling and improvised play.  He performs with local improv comedy groups, and has developed original game systems for tabletop play.  Adventure Away is a way for Wayne to share his love for tabletop games and help everyone find a way to fit gaming into their lives.  His dream is to be a full-time storyteller. He has some skills in the kitchen; so you can call him Alton, just don't tell Alton.
