Response from Scott & Lynda:

Daniel: A most unfortunate review from you. Fortunately, potential guests will read more than this one review to make their decision about staying with us. I am pretty sure that your negative review stems from one of your comments – “one member of my party was refused entry the second night (for completely subjective and controversial reasons--an act that befuddled my entire group).”

Alas Daniel, as you know, the person in question was you. When your friends dragged you to our door at 2:30 am, you were lifeless, unconscious and severely drunk. I stopped them and told them that you needed to be hospitalized. I feared you had severe alcohol poisoning and was concerned that if you vomited while laying on our couch you could likely inhale your own vomit and suffocate – an increasingly alarming occurrence among college students who drink too much. Your friends were adamant that you should not be taken to the hospital, and I was adamant that you should. I shared my concern and suggestion with both your wife and your father. After violently vomiting in front of our house, your friends folded you into their car and sped off.

Daniel, my concern was for you and not these people who clearly wanted to get rid of you as quickly as they could. When your limp body arrived at our door after what was described to us as "hard partying" after your Duke University graduation ceremony, you met several of the physical criteria for severe alcohol poisoning. As a father, there is no way I could stand idly by and accept the wishes of the strangers at the door who kept telling me, “He will be fine. He just needs to sleep it off.”

I hope you grasp the “luck” involved in the timing of your vomiting in front of our home. You were “lucky” that your friends were holding you upright. I need to stress to you (and anyone reading this post), that if I had let your “friends” drag your limp, unconscious body downstairs and lay you on the couch, you would now most likely be dead as a result of choking on your own vomit.

If I acted in a way that helped save your life, then a bad review is well worth it. I must tell you, I would do the same thing were it to happen again. I wish nothing but the best for you Daniel. Hopefully, my reply to your review will strike a chord, if not for you, maybe for someone else who might find themselves in similar circumstances.
