Some settlements make most of the other settlements seem completely ugly and boring, and the one that makes them all look ugly and boring by comparison is Croup Manor. I handpicked it from the wiki as the most beautifully located, the most potentially stylish, and the mostest-most. Last night I fought my way guns-a-blazin' across the entirety of the East map to the lovely little island upon which Croup Manor sits. (Except for the moment when I spotted a Mr. Gutsy on the road, and then I crept silently through the forest like a coward because I don't need that kind of negativity in my life.)
Surrounded by cliffs on three sides, Croup Manor is privy to fantastic ocean views... a totally horrific story in the basement... and a formal dining room. I'm going to call it my main home once I renovate it, and then of course, I shall never go to the basement again. I'm just going to put an armoire blocking the basement door so that you can't even SEE the basement door, because hiding nasty family secrets behind large pieces of furniture has been a Victorian tradition since blah-blibbity-blah-blah.

|Croup Manor: It's... kind of a fixer-upper.|
