Weekend getaway

Wow long time no post. Oops.

The weekend of the February 1st the hubs and I had a little mini getaway. We stayed at the Crescent Hotel which is supposed to be haunted. We didn’t do much. Watched movies, ate some yummy food, had a massage and went on the haunted ghost tour. We didn’t leave the hotel and that was fine by me. We needed some time away from life to relax and regroup. With both of us taking on more of a management role at our places of employment the little getaway was awesome.

The hotel was built in 1886, and went from being a hotel, to a hospital, to vacant and then back to a hotel. I’m glad we stayed there, but I don’t think we would stay there again. It was creaky, and we had to walk up hill in the bathroom to reach the toilet lol.

Here are some pictures from our stay.

The hallway with the plastic is being renovated. During the ghost tour, I had a reaction on that floor. I started to feel really heavy and began to sweat. Everyone else felt fine. Perhaps I was reacting to a ghost… The blue glowing chair and the hospital sign are also from the tour. The hallway with the dresser reminded me of the Shinning. I kept expecting the twins to show up. I thought the banister was cool and the bed with the straps was creepy.

The lobby was really awesome. I loved the fire pace and the details on it. The hotel also has two resident cats. I guess they will follow guests to their rooms and spend the night. Thankfully they didn’t follow us.

It was for sure a neat experience, and I had one of the best massages ever there. Plus for Sunday brunch they served mimosas’ and had a chocolate fountain. That right there is a win in my book!
