The dark corridors and eerie rooms around every corner, hurting your neck from checking each new scene as you pass. Frozen in time is this once-grand hotel/resort that opened in the early 1970s but over the years the location became a lesser travel destination. Adding insult to injury, the hotel was hit by a hurricane that left damage too expensive for the hotel to repair, resulting in the closure in the early 2000s. It was an amazing place, A COUPLE WHO WERE THE LAST ONES TO STAY there before they closed the doors permanently, were literally the only ones there. The Friar Tuck as it was called was already closed so they stayed in the Nottingham Village off to the left of the main resort, all the way in the back by the lake. They stayed there through a timeshare for two weeks, no amenities, just their room which was fine.
It was a little creepy at night being the only ones on that part of the property back there but they enjoyed it very much. The writer’s husband had worked there as a dishwasher during the 1970s summers, his mother was a waitress there too and shared some really great stories about the place.
His cousin used to clean the hotel rooms up to the last days, and they had left food, a bottle of wine and a huge tip-in their room for her to collect when they left, but when she showed up to clean it the owner told her, “Don’t bother, we are shut down for good, no more work.” However, they did let her in to get her goodies. The Friar Tuck has a lot of wonderful stories and memories for the locals around this once awesome facility.
