My sister and I were the only guests the night that we were there. We picked our room (double beds only) across from a large, beautifully remodeled bath. The hotel provides nice bathrobes for any late-night bathroom trips down the hall. The room was small, but nicely furnished. We could hear water flowing over the dam under the bridge, which was a pleasant sound to fall asleep to. It felt strange being the only guests, and the manager left us alone as she was starting a job that night as a waitress. She gave us a key so that we could go out to dinner. After dinner, we watched a big screen TV in the dining area. There are no TVs, phones, or clocks in the rooms. I would have appreciated a box of tissues in the room or at least the bathroom.
The landscaping is really pretty and the yard goes down to the river. We saw lots of butterflies at dusk and an armadillo nosing around in the morning.
I asked if the place was haunted, and she said that activity had greatly diminished recently. The stair light was turned off when I returned from my room, and I KNOW that I didn't touch it. It was dark and I wouldn't have turned it off just to run into the room for a minute. My sister was downstairs and didn't touch it. So if you like ghosts, this would be a fun place.
