“Norman Bates' Cousin?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

Eventually met by a somewhat impaired lodge keeper who gave our room to a more "favored and frequent" guest who called as we were explaining our reservations. We were eventually given a room that shared a bath down the hall. (Constant complaints about all the hard work and a bad back. ) Our two grown adult children and spouses were given the two-bedroom upstairs at the "cottage". They were astonished and "creeped out " by the behavior of the inn keeper but there were few rooms to be had and I had already had to pay because I made late reservations. It was an experience we have recounted many times.
Tip: If you like unique experiences, this is the place but I would not do it alone.

My husband called ahead earlier that day to make a reservation. He was told that I would have my choice of rooms, including a separate cottage for the same low rate. I arrived shortly after dark. The driveway was up-hill and had not been plowed. My all wheel drive made it up.

I went to the door. It was locked. A man was inside vacuuming. I rang the bell three times (twice after he stopped the vacuum) and he finally answered the door. He immediately started telling me that I should never buy this brand of vacuum because it did not pick up the dirt. I first thought he was just a cleaning person.

He continued to complain about having so much work to do. There were crates filling the lobby and mail spread all around. He was slurring his words. He also said he didn’t know how he would get all the things in the crates assembled. Then he told me he had spoken with my husband, but he had only gotten one room cleaned, so I would have to take that room. He then complained that he had hurt his back. He slightly staggered over to get the key and take me upstairs to show me the room. He dropped the key and almost fell over picking it up. Then he told me that since I was the only guest, he would not make a quiche for breakfast. He said he would make eggs and bacon. I said I was a vegetarian and would not eat bacon. He said he would eat it. He said he could give me instant oatmeal.

I followed him upstairs. As we passed one room, he said he could have given me that room, but the TV was broken and he had to get a man to help him carry it down to get it fixed. It was too heavy for him. He showed me my room and handed me the key. I was going out to eat first and planned to return after supper. Then he told me I would need to enter through the kitchen when I returned.

I went out to my car and turned it around facing down the driveway. I was very uncomfortable with the thought of staying the night. Every hair on my body was standing on end. I decided to go in and tell him I had received an emergence phone call and needed to head home immediately.

I went in to tell him. He said he had a 48 hour cancelation policy and I would have to pay for the room. I said, but you do not have any other guests. It is not like you turned anyone away. He said that this was how he made his living and he expected me to pay. I said I did not expect to find a lobby that I could not walk through and a proprietor that had been drinking. I handed the key and started to walk out. He chased me. I ran for me car, got in and locked the doors, and started down the drive. Because of his bad back he had not kept up with me. He started to step in front of my car. I swerved to miss him and rushed away.

When I got out of sight I pulled over and called home. I was so afraid that I kept looking in my rear view mirror. I went to the Holiday Inn. I was lucky he had not gotten my credit card number.
