The Notchland Inn

A tombstone in the inn’s front parlor reads “1778. Nancy Barton. Died in a snowstorm in pursuit of her faithless lover.” Nancy’s is a well-known local legend. When her fiance ran off with her dowry, she suspected which way he had gone and followed him on foot. The man had set up camp where the inn now stands, but when Nancy got here, she found he had already moved on. She was caught in a snowstorm and froze to death by the nearby brook, now called Nancy Brook.

Strange things that have happened at the inn include the name Abigail mysteriously written in steam on the bathroom mirror, although no one had taken a shower for hours. Another guest reported the unexplained appearance of fresh flowers while the guest was taking a nap. On the bathroom mirror, someone had written Happy Anniversary in lipstick. Both the flowers and the message quickly vanished.
