Don’t let the name fool you, as the Biscuit Palace is not a low-rent strip club full of big-bottomed women; however that would be an awesome name for one!

If you do get the privilege of staying at the quaint little home, be sure you keep a good eye on your belongings and make sure you don’t receive a ghostly grab on the “biscuits”! Sorry, but I couldn’t resist that one!
