It really is haunted!

We stayed one night in room 5 (I think). The food was great and the room was impeccable, but the reason it was so memorable was because it was haunted and we had an "experience" with a ghost. I was awakened to find a large man to my left who was very agitated and speaking fast although I couldn't understand him. I suddenly felt pressure on my chest and then he was on the right of the bed. He continued yelling at me and then was suddenly gone. Eventually I went to sleep again and was woken by someone touching the bottom of my right foot. I never felt like I was in danger, it was just interesting.

Wonderful Experience

My husband and I stayed in the caboose cottage for our 43rd anniversary. We loved our stay in the caboose - too cute! Also the breakfast served in the Mason House was delicious and the fellowship with the owner and other guests was wonderful.
