GOSHEN - With a sprawling, scenic property in Orange County as the backdrop, horrors unfolded for a mentally disabled man allegedly held prisoner for years by his hosts.

Police say the owners of a Goshen bed and breakfast imprisoned him there for a decade so they could drain his bank account.

John and Mary Quick operate the Silent Farms Bed and Breakfast on 85 acres along Axworthy Lane in the heart of Goshen. They’re accused of holding the 59-year-old captive and embezzling his money.

Silent Farms is a multimillion-dollar property with five luxurious guest rooms and a cottage -- accommodations that are a far cry from the conditions in which the victim was kept, police say.

They accuse the Quicks of holding the man in a barn on the property without proper heat, plumbing or food.

But friends of the couple say the allegations are untrue. They claim the Quicks cared for the man and provided a fully equipped apartment.

He was taken to a private adult home, where police say he is OK.

The Quicks did not return calls from News 12.
