I was scared out of my mind. Not because of the "ghosts," but because of the filth.
We were first greeted in our room, by a cockroach who was perched upon the soap. We then soon discovered stained bed sheets, dead flies on the floor, and lighting fixtures that either sported dead bulbs, or no light bulbs at all.
The wall paper is bubbling and peeling, the furniture is scratched and ripped. The floor is sticky and gritty. The bathtub struggles to drain. One must stand in a tepid pool of one's own filth.
This place is obviously surviving on their pathetic reputation as "haunted," and does not care at all that their property is rotting away around them.
When we cancelled our second night at the front desk, the employee behind the counter did not seem at all surprised when we informed her of our experience.
In the middle of the night, someone decided it would be "spooky" to limp up and down the hall way, back and forth for about 10 minutes. I know they're trying to sell an "experience" here, but seriously? Do they really expect people to over-look the disgusting factor because of things that go bump in the night?
(OOooh. Footsteps! Guess I'll forget that the sheets look like someone didn't suffer from incontinence as much as they celebrated in it.)
There are so many great places to stay in the White Mountains.
This is not one of them.
