Ships at bay come and go every day and every night at Lakeland Manor and sailors are welcome to stay but only if they are brave…It is a beautiful castle but like they say you can’t judge a book by its cover oh no ‘cuz this place has many demons since many centuries from another and the mystery outnumbered…Lady in the garden, weeping as if in mourning, Faint voices whispering, Rocking chairs a rocking, Piano playing, Doors opening and closing all by themselves. It is not somewhere you’d want to be all by yourself…Oh and I did catch the glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye, The slightest trace of perfume in a cold spot passing by…Well I get the feeling inside I am being watched and it makes my hair stand on end I am a believer now if I never was and you can’t pay me enough to spend another night there again at Lakeland Manor!
