Welcome to The Best Exotic Moss Arbour Inn
The Best Exotic Moss Arbour Inn is an unusual hideaway and Halloween haven for headless horsemen, howling Hecates, and hallucinating hobgoblins. So, put on your crazy costume and let's have some fun.
Situated in a ghost-town well off-the-beaten track, not far from the junction of Pig's Ear Road and Purgatory Street, this haunted house has reinvented itself as macabre mansion for all sorts of mummies and devilish daddies usually with a band of mutant munchkins in tow.
Business has been thin since the stock-market "Crash", so long ago that no one really remembers the details, except things were so bleak that the bats, black cats and other blood-curdling beasts had to high-tail it out of town to take advantage of the "red" hot real estate market deals found in Hell. Consequently, cackling crones and dastardly dragons can enjoy a 25% doomed discount on all amenenties and services, while petrified pets can stay for free.

You know you've come to the right place if you can spot a breathtaking broomstick on the front porch and a wicked witch on the warpath to find it.

Father Guido Sarducci and his curious companion-in-arms, Jezebel Jinglepot are the gracious hosts of this little-known retreat for odd-ball, off-beat, and out-of-sorts folks who feel the need for a little adventure in an alluring spot that is literally off-the-map.
With many moons of experience behind them, these plucky proprietors are pleased to be at your beck and call, together with their staff of dedicated doormouse delivery-agents aided by fabulously freaky front-line folks such as Susie Q - The Boisterous Black Widow Spider.
Remember, your wicked wish is just a blinking buzzer, a tawdry telephone call, or perhaps a twisted text message away.
The Best Exotic Moss Arbour Inn
1. This alluringly adventuresome abode gives new meaning to the term "exotic".
2. The Inn is owned by a dude with attitude named "Doo-Wah-Diddy" and a very wicked wench affectionally known as, "Nibbling Norfin".
2. All of its well-appointed weird rooms permit guests to R.I.P. (Rest In Peace) in their choice of a size-friendly sarcophagus, a tantalizing Tomb of the Forgotten, or a pentagram-decorated pine box.
3. All rooms are numbered 13 in order to add an air of mystery to the place and satisfy the difficult-to-meet needs of our deleriously different guests such as fire-eating fishwives, hysterical harpies and misbegotten muckrakers.
4. Every Friday the 13th, the Inn offers a number of surprisingly superstitious specials (designed to please browsing bedlam-seekers, sassy sirens, and tricky termagants who love to let the cat of the bag).
5. Seating at "The Last Meal" is reserved for 13 patrons per table. All guests are invited to share their favorite bogeyman or bad luck tales while wolfing down a wonderful witches brew served on reconstituted rubber receptacles (a.k.a. environmenttally-friendly, dishwasher-safe, previously-enjoyed non-PVC plates).
6. The Inn prides itself on its progressive postmodern patron policies which do not permit smoking like a chimney on the premises nor releasing fetid fragrances in confined spaces such as closets, stairways, or bathrooms.
7. Every week the inn features a frightful selection of fin, fur, and feather to satisfy the most devilishly discriminating palate of creepy cuisine enthusiasts.
8. Those with special needs from the odious occult community will enjoy awesome accommodations and amenities whether it be fashionably freaky furniture for foul weather fiends, oddly-decorated outhouses for ogres, or a ghastly golf course designed by the Grim Reaper for demon duffers, hapless hellions, and tetchy tigers.
9. All clocks on the premises are frozen in time at 12:00 midnight in honor of the witching hour, a special time to observe cows jumping over the moon, crazy critters howling at the moon, or cackling crones casting spells on a moonlit night.
10. The Inn encourages an eco-friendly healthy lifestyle by inviting all patrons to participate in popular events such as kissing frogs, pinning the tail on an invisible donkey, and bobbing for beets, turnips, and other delicious veggies.

The Inn is open 24/7.
It invites free-roaming species of all sorts to take up residence when the spirit moves them to do so.
The only caveat being that all guests must be respectful of each other and tread lightly when travelling down the halls, stairwells, and window-sills.

This captivating caravansary caters to the dietary needs of septuagenarian soothsayers, sorcerers, and skulking spirits plus an odd assortment of vintage vampires, vixens, and voodoo practitioners.
For those who can no longer digest pickled pigs toes, toads in the hole, and lightly-brazed lizards, the Chef de Queasy Stomachs at the Inn can prepare a marvelous magical medicinal that will rejuvenate any flagging folk.
Called "Lucifers Lipsmacker", this drink is sure to warm the cockles of any hag, harridan, or hapless hobgoblin.

This eerie environment is not for the faint of heart
Her name is "Snatchup"

To many homo sapiens, arthropods are abhorrent creatures, so much so that apparently the U.S. government spends approximately 4 percent of its annual GDP on eliminating this scourge of humanity.
Our haunted house mascot named "Snatchup" is not only a benevolent bug but, more importantly, rather reclusive by nature. More often than not, she prefers to remain in the shadows while performing her valuable role in our highly esteemed and enchanting establishment. Uniquely endowed with a long life span which makes her incapable of expiring from natural causes, she also has a voracious appetite for pesky pests like mosquitoes, flies, and wasps who try slip into our supernatural shelter without making a reservation like everyone else.
Patrons will be pleased to know that while "Snatchup" is well-behaved most of the time, if she is verbally abused or mistreated in any way, she is capable of snuggling up to subjects while they are asleep and injecting them with enough poison to drop a horse.
From a Frightening Frequent-Flyer

"My lunar layover at this fantastic frequent-flyer flophouse was truly beyond the pale.
I've never met so many belching banshees, backbiting battle-axes, and brawny bogeymen in all my life.
After spending an entire evening of fun freaking out folks at The Crypt Casino in the basement, I couldn't wait to be pampered in the Spa for Shrews & She-Devils located somewhere out on the back forty. All those marvelous mud packs and powerful potions concocted by the Cosmetically-Challenged Cauldron Crew were simply superb.
I was so impressed with all the toil and trouble they took to find my favorite ingredients: eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, not to mention lizard's leg and howlet's wing. Frankly, having a face that would stop a clock has always been my worst nightmare. So, I was tickled pink with the treatment I received; it did wonders for my sagging skin and plump proboscis."
At this unnerving, unforeseen, and undiscovered

Although the bumper sticker on Hermione's broomstick read, "I brake for toads" and the twilight trees on the back forty of this rough and ready retreat had been pruned for the flight-path of incoming unidentified flying objects, clearly the Fickle Finger of Fate had something else in mind for this bewitching babe that revealed itself in the full light of day.
Note: In honor of the Holy Ghost and this heavenly hag who lost her way on that fateful evening many moons ago, the inn will be screening side-splitting re-runs of the popular TV series, "The Flying Nun", and serving all guests with goose bumps a glass of red wine imported from the Vampire Vineyards in Transylvania together with an assorted selection of alluring appies and wicked wafers just to take the edge off this Night of Terror.
As Grand Pooh-Bah & Guardian of the Mystic Cesspool, President of the Genteel Society of Expurgated Hoodlums, and Worshipful Master of the Fee-Faw-Fummers of the Inimitable Grip, I (Fergus Flathead) can attest to the wonderfully weird holiday our members enjoyed at The Best Exotic Moss Arbour Inn.
We shall never forget your creepy customer service and attention to detail in your devilish decor such as the giant cobwebs, well-fed cockroaches, and cloves of garlic that festooned the walls of our well-appointed rooms overlooking the Grim Grinning Ghost Graveyard.
The Bubbling Bloody Marys served at bedtime together with the chocolate covered tarantulas were very much appreciated. And, we really enjoyed chipping the blocks of dry ice apart with a hammer and screwdriver while wearing colored safety glasses which we think may have caused the early demise of at least one parrot, two cats, and three mice in your haunted house. (Please accept our apology and the enclosed cheque to cover their funeral expenses.)
Personally, I can't wait to hear more gruesome tales about the Grumpy Pumpkin raining down fire and brimstone upon all the wimps and wusses. Next year, we're going to invite the Sisterhood of Skull-Duggery to join us so they can share some of their spine-tingling stories about Willie the Wicked Wasp, the Broken-Bust in the Graveyard, and the Dreadful Doom Buggies.
