It was very sad that the purchasers of the Inn - Debby Sells, Denise Sells, Bobby Allen and Crystal Allen, much as we feared, were out of business within a year. We have heard first hand from company hired to clean the inn after they were finally removed, that they destroyed the inn, living like animals in the building for several months after electricity and water were shut off. The Inn was foreclosed on and for sale.

It is for sale, we believe through Lloyd & Day, probably at a great price. Hope someone will restore it to level we had brought it up to.

When we were negotiating with the Sells and Allens they claimed to have owned the Honeymoon Hotel in Branson MO. We attempted to contact the realtor, chamber and others there, but no one would give us any information on these people. Now we know why. If you are considering a business deal with Debby Sells a/k/a Debra Sells a/k/a Debbie Sells, Denise Sells, Bobby Allen a/k/a Robert Allen, Crystal Allan a/k/a Chris Allan, we are happy to describe our ordeal. One of our attorney's referred to them and their extended family (about 11 in all moving into the buildng) as "the Grifters." Apropos.

October 15, 2008

Well, after 10 years we finally sold the inn, sort of. Keep posted for a unbelievable account of the "grifters" who "purchased" the inn, after a year of putting us through hell. Sadly, the future of the inn is in question as I doubt they will survive given the changes they made, their business practices, and the bills they routinely fail to pay.

A foreclosure auction was postponed until December 2, 2008 by Laconia Savings, the local lender unwilling to work with them in trying to finance, while the big national lender from Texas was extremely cooperative, so much for the advice to bank local. Certainly not worth doing it with Laconia Savings.

An article detailing the problems we had in trying to sell, including spending weeks trying to have someone with authority act. The county attorney, Robin Gordon, would not even have the courtesy to respond to emails or phone calls despite providing evidence of ongoing fraud - she is up for re-election, so would strongly recommend anyone running against her - hopefully they would at least make some effort to respond to the public they are suppose to be protecting. The town police chief was ineffectual at best - responding that the county attorney Robin Gordon instructed him to do nothing. Similarly, the town attorney, repeated instructed the fire marshall not to act, he was the one individual that took his duties seriously, and as he expressed could not stand by while these people violated the law. But alas, the town attorney was more concerned over the town getting sued, than trying to end illegal activity - forget about the 10 year business that was a tax paying and law abiding resident of the town who had grounds to sue the town, and still might, but rather their concern was the criminals operating blatantly and unrepentantly.
