Calumet Historic Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Calumet Historic Hotel

This historic hotel was erected during the nineteenth century to serve as a railroad stopover for the railway industry which at the time was the lifeblood of the township. The hotel featured two especially haunted rooms, which are always in demand by paranormal investigators and enthusiasts visiting the very haunted hotel and town. In Room #207, a spook has been known to ring reception asking for sundry articles, but upon investigation, the room is locked and there is no one inside. According to reviews, Room #308 is a hotbed for paranormal activity, making it one of the most sought after rooms. Others claim to have seen a lady in a bright dress wandering the hallways who vanishes right before their eyes. In the dining room, the piano has been know to play of its own accord, and a man in an old-fashioned suit has been seen lounging around before disappearing when approached by staff or guests.

  1. I just stayed in Room 307. I had a very uncanny feeling on the first night that I was not alone in my room. The next day, I asked my meeting attendee/friends if there was a haunting or anything at the Calumet. They all looked at me and incredulously said “yes” as if I was supposed to know! This is next to room 308 which my door shared the exact same hallway.

  2. I was asked to do some renovations on the hotel. While working on certain rooms which i will leave anonymous i have had SEVERAL things happen. The first instance my wife was with me keeping me company while i was finishing up texturing a ceiling she took a snapchat of me working at the time of her recording i got some stuff in my eye.i yelled some choice words. when her video replayed everything was absolutely silent you could not her me and her phone said careless over and over as her phone glitched out we were both very shook up about this and her phone would not let her save the recording. The second event happened a few days later when i was doing the same in a different room. I was alone this time. as i was sanding the ceiling i felt as if somebody was watching me. I looked towards the door several after looking several times I saw what looked to be a tall old fashioned dress curly haired man leaning on the doorway looking at me. i double looked and when i looked back he walked off and disappeared. the third happened the next day when i was moving 20 plus mattresses into a storage room. the hotel manager was helping me. we laid out some plastic on the floor and stacked 10 or so and ran out of room so we put another tarp down. we pulled the corners tight to get rid all the wrinkles and proceeded on. after another 4 box frames i was carrying a box spring in and almost stepped on a light bulb on the tarp. we both walked over the tarp several times before that and stretched it out and there was no light bulb there. disturbing. shortly after that, on the same day i thought i saw a young girl in a white old fashioned dress running down the hallway in front of me. next several days later. we were getting a room put back together after it had been worked on. me and some other hotel staff put all the furniture back in the room including bed night stands tv dresser. when were done we all left the room and the door was locked. when me the manager and housekeeper returned later that day to clean the room the manager noticed something written down in the heavy drywall dust on the dresser. i took a picture. you look and interpret what it says, but to me it says “Im here ‘Ol chap”. this was extremely disturbing and I find myself thinking about everything that has happened constantly now. I never really was a person to believe in this kind of stuff but i am finding it very very hard to find reasonable explanations for all of these events. Will post more if other things happen as i will be doing more maintenance on the building.
