Tour Report: Weasel's Inn

The weather really wasn't our friend that day. Pixelcracker and I had left the abandoned manor house and got on the way to the second location we had planned. The drive was about 30 minutes and during these 30 minutes, we drove through fog, sunshine (only a litlle bit), and rain. A lot of rain.
Only as we arrived, the rain started to cease a little.
The good thing was that there was a more or less public parking spot right next to the location - and an RV isn't really percepted as suspicious in the area, so parking there really was a no-brainer.
I got out of the car and started checking around and looking for a way in. A possible access was quickly found. However, it didn't really inspire confidence.
Accessing involved scrambling up a wet, rock wall to access a kind of porch roof. This roof was made of wood and was oviously less than stable. And the wood was mossy and wet from the rain. From that roof we'd have to climb trough a broken window - that would probably be the easiest part.
Pixelcracker and I conferred for a few minutes and decided to give it a try. I'd passed this place so many times without entering, and I wasn't going to let a bit of rain stop me now!
Surprisingly enough, we both made it inside without sustaining major injuries :)

Once inside, we immediately started looking around and taking photos. The inn had a small seating area around the bar and a larger dining room that probably was also used for events. There was also a kitchen on the ground floor. As we entered it, we saw that the ceiling had lowered itself significantly, and the kitchen floor was wet and kind of slippery. There was obviously some major water damage in this building.
On the upper floors, we found the guest rooms. A lot of the still had all the furniture in them, and we could see that there probably hadn't been any refurbishment since the late 1970s or early 1980s.
Some parts of the floor had followed the kitchen ceiling, so we were really careful as we moved around the place. After about an hour or so, we had seen everything and climbed out the same way we had gotten in.
This had been another successful explore - and onther one of those places that you drive past for years and when you enter and look at it, you recognize it from photos online and think "Oh, it's THAT place - nice!!".
