November 1, 2013
James and Mary-Anne Valdeese were struggling artists who owned their own art gallery, but due to the unconventional nature of their work, business was extremely slow. In hopes of offsetting their son's growing medical costs and the lack of income from their failing art business, the family became the new proprietors of the once famous Trower Inn. The family did not realize it's grimm history and due to it's paranormal past, business never really got off the ground. The family seemed to transform into a cold and distant bunch. Weary passers who didn't know better would stay at the hotel. Those lucky enough to flee in the middle of hte night would report seeing shadowy figures in hallways, screams coming from the walls, and more terrifying experiences. Do you have what it takes to spend a night at the Trower Inn? Book online here today!
