The Shining reincarniated at The Bradley Inn

The 2019 season is just about over and with Halloween being out last day for a month, we open again for Thanksgiving, we decided to have some Halloween fun…Ross and Clarissa dressed up as Jack and Wendy and reenacted a few scenes from The Shining.  


We get asked quite frequently if living at the Inn in the winter is like being in The Shining.  Honestly, we have come to think of the entire building as home, it took a couple of years to get there though.  I have traipsed around in the dark, using a flashlight because we are not keeping all those hall lights on just for us, to get a bowl of cereal in the middle of night…while wearing a hot pink robe. Quite the visual, huh? 

Well, I must admit there have been a couple of times where I let my imagination get the best of me and got the hebbie jebbies.  Like when I heard the loud noise, went to check it out…again with my flashlight and hot pink robe…to get down to the first floor, Tony and I sleep on the third floor, only to find a light on that should not have been on.  I then made the mistake of looking down that long, super dark hallway to the public restrooms.  Well, I then ran up all the stairs very quickly…with that constant feeling as if someone…or thing was chasing me.  You know that feeling.  It’s irrational but sometimes you just give into it.  In the morning I found out the Ross and Clarissa heard the loud noise and had gone around to check it out, they had left the light on. Whew…

So the next time you come to visit, whether as an Inn guest or for dinner, think about what may have gone on in this old building when no one else was here….after all…
