“Sophisticated visitors sometimes regard the “hillbilly” as a simple child of nature, whose inmost thoughts and motivations may be read at a glance. Nothing could be farther from the truth.” (Vance Randolph) One thing that is certainly there to be garnered from the history of the Crescent is that we are of the same ilk as the rest of humanity. Let any preconceived underestimation be dispelled. The rest of the “sophisticated” world is just as capable beliefs that will later be chalked up to superstition. And the fine people of the Ozarks are just as capable of creating refinement and luxury.
Toward the end of the ghost tour we arrived at its most macabre. “Doctor” Baker had used his wealth to build a system of tunnels, even from upstairs rooms, under the sanatorium and under the grounds so that in the case of a raid by the feds he would be able to make a quick getaway.
One particular thing that is beautiful about El Nido is that they still have a huge amount of greens. This makes for a beautiful backdrop for any outdoor wedding. There will be no need to spend a ton of cash on a florist as El Nido is rich with trees that reach magical heights that will take the place of those expensive flowers. Your guests will be in awe of the breathtaking landscapes that await them.
As a bridegroom, you want your bride to look nothing less than a princess. However, the cost of the princess gowns can take a toll on your pocket. Does it mean you would compromise on your dreams? Certainly not. The better brand you go for, the more you would be paying up. This is unnecessary spending. You can cut down on this. When you buy branded gowns, the cost of the brand name contributes much more than the actual fabric. Therefore, you can go for custom made marriage garments. Ultimately, the craftsmanship is what matters the most.

I found the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa online and made reservations. I also made reservations at the new Moon Day spa & Salon located in the hotel’s garden level. I planned the evening such that after our arrival we would be able to check in, spend time in the spa, have dinner at the hotel’s elegant Crystal Dining room Restaurant, go from there to join one of the Crescent Hotel Ghost tours, and finally some light indulgence at Dr. Baker’s Bistro & Sky Bar in the top floor of the hotel before retiring for the evening in opulent accommodation.
