  1. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary 2 years ago. We had no idea we were going to remember this place for things other than a nice anniversary get away. We proceeded to read about the history of the inn the first night we stayed in the wrlcolm book they have in the rooms. Later that evening we were in the jacuzzi tub and were talking about how it wouldnt surprise us if the place was haunted being that it was so old. We had the jets off in the tub and right after I said that to my husband the jets in the tub turned on by themselves. We were no where near the hard to push down button and we both truely believe we experienced something that could be logically explained possibly but we also know the feeling in the room and that this was for sure a paranormal experience. Just to be clear this place was great and in no way did it feel like it was something hurtful or harmful just something that wanted us to know we were right and it was there. It was one of the coolest things I have experienced and would go back in a heartbeat.

  2. I have worked with Kevin twice- both times he has been eexcptional. I’ve come with and without garments although he usually supplies everything. He had a wonderful hair&make-up team the second time we shot together who made me feel like more of a model. One thing that I really enjoy about Kevin is his ability to guide the shoot by directing the model.. he does this without being overbearing or pushy yet still strong enough to get the images that has idealized. I personally thoroughly enjoy this about Kevin- I’m sure if you (as a model) had more experience than I and could rock the shoot entirely, he would probably be quiet the whole time- aside from the occasional joke or compliment. I definitely look forward to working with him again in the near future! Thank you for everything, Kevin!

  4. I stayed I the Robert Frost sweet With a Girlfriend and Miss B woke her twice during the night, She talked to her but she never showed herself to me. As she walked by the gas fire place her EVP turned the fireplace off. At a lil after 3am I heard the “Col” and another man argue outside my room and I was “forced” down in the bed un able to move or yell out! Later that morning my girlfriend and I told the Keepers of the B&B about our experience, and they said yes that Miss B had died in that room and her spirit is there. My girlfriend then picked the nurse in white that spoke to her out of a picture with several other women in it and the keeper confirmed it to be Miss B. We left not staying another night.
