The strange occurrences at this hotel include the smell of cigar smoke that is attributed to one of the retirement residents who passed away here a long time ago, furniture being barricaded from the inside of the rooms when no one is inside, and apparitions. A man wearing a frock coat and top hat has been seen, along with a lady in white who reportedly jumped off a hotel balcony. A woman ghost also haunts Room 330, and a child ghost lingers on the ground floor where a pool used to be.

  • Sat on by a ghost

    This was about 8-9 years ago. My boyfriend and I stopped for the night on a whim, we found the hotel to be charming and beautiful- they even had an old fashioned bellhop! Everything was great, we had dinner and drinks with no issue and retired around 10/11 pm. I woke up a few hours later, hot and sweaty- the room was unbearably hot and I remember being annoyed by the loud radiator. I lay debating for a min or two if I should get up to turn it down when I saw a human form walk around the foot of our bed and to my side of the bed, suddenly I couldn't move or speak - all I could do was dig my fingers into my boyfriends leg that it had been resting on- the bed dipped as if someone was sitting on it, my body actually rolled a bit towards the dip and suddenly I was flattened and frozen -like I was being pushed down into the bed, it lasted for about 10 seconds and then it was suddenly gone. I was terrified- I rolled over and wrapped by arms around my boyfriends and basically choked him away. When we checked out, the front desk gave us a gift certificate for $150, which I found peculiar. Looking back I think it was because they knew there was activity in that area that night. I later learned while researching the hotel that they would sometimes chain off or block the hallways that were experiencing heavy paranormal activity and I remember that our room was right next to a hallway/staircase that had been blocked off. I keep trying to get people to come back with me but no one will because of the history of the hotel and my own experience! I would definitely go back.

  • Our experience in 331

    My Fiance and I stayed for one night in room 331. After we arrived, we went out for a short time to grab a few things at the store. Before we left, we had left an empty backpack on one of the chairs in the room. When we came back about an hour later, the backpack was on the floor, in front of the chair. But it was lying in a position that could not have naturally occurred if it had simply fallen off the chair by itself. Later that night, when I was asleep and my fiance came out of the bathroom, she noticed that my socks that I had taken off (that I had peeled off randomly), were lying straight and parallel to each other neatly on the floor (in the same spot where we found the backpack earlier) as if placed there. We also heard music, voices and footsteps like a party above us for a few minutes. All in all it's a very charming an beautiful hotel to stay in.

  • Strange occurences

    I stayed here on a recent family vacation. I had no clue of its haunted reputation but had some very strange things happen while I was there. I have pictures from inside the hotel at 3am but....well....you'll have to see them for yourself. I prided myself on not believing in ghosts but having first hand experiences in this beautiful hotel has swayed that belief

  • Beautiful Historic Hotel

    I would love to know what room the above review was in. This was my 2nd time here, different rooms and plan on going back. The paranormal stuff doesn't bother me and yes I had a similar experience with the closet light on a motion sensor and the bed incident. We were just recently there staying in room 346. We witnessed the closet light come on with the closet door shut at 8pm , 1030pm and then it came on and woke my wife up around 2 am. My wife said she couldnt move, speak or open her eyes, she was in a frozen state. I woke up when something felt like tugging or sitting on the blankets on my side of the bed that sent tingling up my legs. The first time we stayed there I heard strange noises early am which may or may not be able to be explained but this trip, something paranormal is definitely going on in that room.

  • It was Terrifying - Not Fun!

    We checked in the night before Easter, March 26, 2016 intending to stay the night and have Easter Bruch the next morning. They gave us room 313. WE went upstairs and put our suitcases in and went to explore the town a bit. Came back and had dinner in the dining room around 7PM then up to the room. In the room is a closet with a light that comes on when the door opens so no switch, which was fine. My fitbit says I fell asleep around 10:30PM and at 1:34 AM I was woken up by ladies voices in the hall and looked at the large gap under the door expecting to see shadows which I did not see. Shortly after the closet light came on for a few minutes then off. About 10 minutes later it came on again. Now I'm awake and can't help but watch the closet door. If you've been there you'll know the gaps under all the doors is about 2 -3 inches so you can clearly see under it without getting close. As this continued for about an hour I found myself trying to scream but I was so terrified I couldn't even move. Then something sat down against my legs in the bed clearly making and indention on the blankets. I could feel then up next to me. That's when I started crying, still unable to move or scream. They eventually got up and then the light started coming on again and I was still trying to scream eventually I woke up my boyfriend I told him "look" he didn't know what he was looking for and then again the closet light came on. He witnessed this a few times then he turned the light on. Still crying I told him I m leaving, grabbed my cloths and ran down 3 fights of stairs, told the front desk guy its haunted and I was leaving. We drove over an hour home at 4AM. I will never go back to that place again. I
