We stayed here for a work trip and had to leave early due to: flooding (the showers don't work), the electricity went out, there is no heat, when you try to use the space heaters it shuts off all the electricity, and it's HAUNTED AF. The lights would flicker every time we mentioned how much we hated the house, and we all felt uneasy the whole time we were there as if someone was watching us. None of us could sleep because we felt so uneasy the whole time.
