I don't know how anyone could give this place a bad review... But this is the second time me and my boyfriend have stayed here... We stayed here in February and then April Fool's weekend for our 1 year anniversary. This place is ABSOLUTELY wonderful!!!!!! The rooms are beautiful so is their land. Ted and Carol are so friendly and accomadating. The rooms and everthing is clean. There is a WONDERFUL pool table room which besides the pool table, it has a flat screen tv with a bluray player if you want to bring any movies to watch (I think it also said 3D as well, so just a heads up if you are coming). The pool room also has a popcorn machine which is pretty cool. The breakfasts were fanastic. They have the BEST home-made jelly ever!!! We got some last time and taking more with us this time. When we showed up on Friday, Ted offered to help us with dinner plans/reservations and being our anniversary, he suggested the Bella Fiore which ended up being very nice and romantic for us :) (Also, if you are staying here and bring a card you get a free dessert)... Last time we were here we stayed in the Amy room which was so cozy... and this time (because we didn't know the 'haunting history' of the place the first time around) we chose the Adelaide room. No ghosts this weekend though lol. Thi place i absolutely wonderful, and very VERY good prices especially for being near the casinos. The fireplaces are wonderful to relax by. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the rooms have crystal bottles with some honey cognac (i believe) for 'night-caps'. I also love how 'guest books' are in each room, I love reading through past guests' comments, which are usually talking of haunted experiences. It is such a wonderful idea. Ted let us put our wines and champagnes in the fridge for our special weekend. We can not wait to have another excuse to stay here again, which I hope is soon!!!! This is definately the best place to stay in the area and I recommend it to everyone I know!! Ted and Carol sat down at the breakfast table Sunday morning with everyone and everyone shared stories of ghosts and paranormal stuff... was a very interesting conversation. And I love how Ted gets everyone to introduce themselves before breakfast, really breaks the ice and gets the conversations rolling. Hopefully we will come back soon in the next couple of months, because there is alot in the area left for us to explore, and some things which are seasonal and not open/running yet that we would love to do. This wasn't the first time we have been here, and it SURE WILL NOT be the last!!!! THIS IS MY MOST FAVORITE PLACE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Ted and Carol for being wonderful hosts! We will see you again..... Rich K. and Kala N.
