The historic AAA Four-Diamond, Fairview Inn will be conjuring up some spooky spirits this Halloween. Take this haunted opportunity to get in touch with the other side by sleeping in one of the Fairview Inn’s original haunted rooms, dining for a Halloween themed Sunday brunch, or celebrating with a Halloween party. During your visit you may just be able to encounter Robert, the Inn’s permanent ghostly guest.
Starting on Sunday, October 30, 2011, the Fairview Inn will take on a new spooky look. “We will transform our guest rooms to take you to a totally different time and place,” says owner Peter Sharp. “We thought with such an old home, full of history, it would be the perfect setting for people to get in touch with the ‘other side’.” The Fairview Inn was built in 1908 and has seen many guests in its 103 year history.
One guest that seems to linger is a Civil War Soldier named Robert. “We don’t like cleaning the Third Floor Suite,” says housekeeper Lillie Washington. “Immediately walking up the stairs, the hair on your arm stands up and you get an eerie feeling. I’ve even seen the mop bucket move by itself!” The Third Floor Suite is located in the Fairview Inn’s old attic space. Many guests staying in the original part of the home will often ask upon checkout about loud footsteps heard above them through the night. This, we can only attribute to our permanent attic guest Robert. For October 30 and 31, Robert has decided that he wants to give a discount on all rooms! Call 888-948-1908 and mention Robert’s Special and we will ask him what discount you should receive- hope you catch him in good “spirits.”
In the spirit of the season, the Inn will not only decorate guest rooms but will also host a Halloween themed Sunday brunch and Halloween party. The brunch, on Sunday, October 30, 2011, will include items from Igor’s inventive entrees to Dracula’s daring desserts. Those wanting to celebrate are invited to Fright Night on Monday, October 31, 2011, for a Halloween party. The party will begin at 6:30pm and will include supernatural sounds from DJ Scott Steele, tarot card readings by Ms. Downey, and enough food to even satisfy Frankenstein’s hearty appetite. The Fairview will be mixing up specialty drinks including “Brain Hemorrhage,” Dracula’s Blood,” “Cold-Blooded Killer,” and “The Hatchet,” to name a few. There will be a haunted house for the truly brave and a costume contest for those dressed in the “spirit” of the evening. Prizes include a relaxing couple’s massage for the best costume couple, an overnight stay at the Fairview for the most creative, and more.
Celebrate the spirit of this fall season with a hauntingly fun time at the Fairview. You might be lucky enough to hear about how the Inn “met” Robert and you may come away with your own ghost story to tell. To book a room, please call (888) 948-1908.
