Fall is almost here and for many people, this season is synonymous with Halloween. To celebrate the spookiest time of the year and to spend the 31st of October in the most classic way possible, plan ahead and book one of the otherworldly accommodations at The Roxbury at Stratton Falls. With their over-the-top thematic décor, nothing screams Halloween more.
Vampires and bats are a major part of Halloween. Count Dracula is undoubtedly the most popular vampire. Dracula’s Fangs cottage brings vampire enthusiasts to old-world Transylvania with its gothic decor, a grand winding staircase, a vampiric throne chamber, and red velvet curtain.
This cottage also features a master bedroom with the most towering ceiling of any other at Stratton Falls. Inspired by the groin vault scenes in the original Hollywood Bela Lugosi classic the bedroom features brass wall railings, cushioned walls, and red velvet blackout curtains. This cottage is also one-half of the only duplex building with interior adjoining doors into its neighboring cottage – The Crown of the Pendragons Tower Cottage.
The name “Pendragon” comes from the Welsh pen “head or chief” and the Latin “draco” means “dragons.” So the name literally means “Chief-Dragon” or “Head-Dragon.” And that is exactly the way The Roxbury at Stratton Falls wants its guests to feel when they stay in The Crown of the Pendragons Tower Cottage.
It includes an 85-gallon circular tub with a three-tiered, 20-foot-high chandelier hovering above and two massive throne chairs stand by awaiting the “Chief Dragon” and her/his mate to lounge and relax. A full-body, shower spraying chamber is hidden behind golden druid sculptures. The Crown of the Pendragon is the only cottage with one king bedroom. It does feature though a sleeper sofa in the lower level living area and another large bathroom with a walk-in shower.
The history of Halloween spans 2,000 years and originates from keeping ghosts away. For the ghost hunters among us, The Roxbury’s The Ghost and Mrs. Hicks Victorian-inspired room sits in the 1848 Mansion where a friendly young ghost is said to preside over the room.
It is believed that the ghost is related to Mrs. Hicks – the wife of the couple who originally built the Mansion. To find out how our girl became a ghost, guests can study the wall covering while staying in the room.
