The floods of Irene and Lee have claimed another casualty: The Trail Motel, a longtime fixture on Route 28 in Boiceville. The Daily Freeman has a feature today about the motel and its owners:

Walter DeBaun said he and his wife, Barbara, are too old to start over, and don’t have enough money for the needed work, so their Trail Motel, next to the IGA grocery store on state Route 28, will not reopen.

“I’m 80 years old,” DeBaun said. “I can’t start over again. It’s too late for me.

The Freeman also has a video about the DeBauns and their decision not to reopen the Trail Motel.
