We checked in, and we are told to take the hallway to right, then down the stairs to our room in the section reserved for guests with pets. We planned on taking the boys to the room first before unloading the car. We head on down that hallway....(Here is where I mention that I am an avid reader, and have enjoyed many of Stephen King's stories....Can you see where this is going?)
Just the second I see this hallway, it brings back book-to-movie memories, and I blurt out "Redrum!" I blame it on six hours in the car....
But the real kicker comes later when I take the boys out to the back of the hotel for a walk and find this....
|You'd better run!|
|Keeping their eyes peeled in both directions!|
There is a roughly hewn maze cut into a large section of wild and overgrown vegetation. It winds this way and that, including forks to choose, and if you follow it far enough, it leads you into the deep forest.
This third similarity to a book setting had me giggling when I returned to the room. Fortunately, our stay was much more pleasant than the one in the book/movie and much warmer, too!
Does anyone know where my imagination took me when I saw this hotel and its grounds?
