I was babysitting
So I was baby sitting a little girl and while she was napping I was cleaning the kitchen. The cleaning spray can slid all the way across the counter Everytime I set it down. Also the child that I was babysitting had a couple of big rag dolls that Everytime I would put them somewhere, they would move to a different location. Also, I went to the laundry room to do dinner laundry and I kept hearing laughing. Definitely a thrilling experience. Posted 10/3/19
Best time ever
Enjoyed the visit stayed in a haunted room. Awesome. I was taking a shower n the shower curtain kept movi g to the side. I also heard antique piano in dinning area play at 2a.m. it was awesome. The dinning area was completely locked. The bar area was great. I felt touched n heard conversations i saw Lily on the stairs n a little boy. He was sitting on steps n i almost fell. I enjoyed the stay. I cant wIt to go back. I want to thank the staff n owner for a great time n a great continental breakfast. The meals were fantastic. Thank you all.Posted 3/9/19
