I inquired about this place with the power outages. I stayed here in the past, both in the older weekly cottages up front and the newer building (built in approx 1985-90 I was told) in a kitchenette room.
This place is supposed to has have been renovated to meet Red Carpet Inn Standards, but still has to same 1980s old room furnishings and furniture of when I stayed there in 2007. , The older mid century cottages in the front part of the property has better sound insulation between the room walls. than the newer building's paper thin walls. in other words when you stay in the older building you can't hear the people in the room next door to you, but in the newer building, I could hear people fighting and the blaring tv in the room next door in the new building. The beautiful green mountain views are non exsistent.
The kitchnette and bathroom were from the mid 80s as well as the hot tub tiles. The older cottages (buildings)are run as a seperate entity under their old Colonial Park Motel name. Newer back building with Christmas tree lights is the Red Carpet Inn. Outside apperance of property and peple hanging around there scare people away. Not safe.
