Hopland Inn

This 1880’s inn and saloon is now closed, but the third floor of the establishment used to be a bordello. The ghost rumoured to be haunting the place is the apparition of a woman in a white dress, who was supposedly jilted by a lover and committed suicide in an upstairs room.

  1. I used to work here when it was The Thatcher Inn. I got the job because the mother of my boyfriend at the time also worked there. During my shifts there was rarely ever a guest staying at the inn, and I spent most nights there completely alone. My boyfriend’s mother told me the place was haunted and loved to regale me with her terrifying tales. One story she told me was of a chair that sat next to the front door that would occasionally move or turn on it’s own. It normally sat facing another chair and a small table in a cozy little seating arrangement. I watched that chair like a hawk and for several weeks nothing happened. Then one night I ventured into the kitchen to grab a midnight snack. As usual, there was no one in the building but myself, and the place was locked up tight. I always made a point of looking at the placement of this chair every time I left the room, and this particular night was no exception. After I found something suitable to snack on, I returned to the lobby, where I found that the chair had been turned and was facing out toward the lobby. It was just a chair that had been turned, but that was enough for me! That place was beautiful, but spooky and I was not going to spend another night alone there to see what else would happen.

  2. I am a former bartender of Hopland inn and had many experiences with the “permanent residents” there. If your interested in hearing the stories please email me.

    • Hey, I’m currently the housekeeper at the place next door, but we’re expanding to the Hopland Inn soon and I’ve been offered the on-site position. I’d love to hear your experiences before I possibly start living there.

  3. I’ve seen the woman in the white dress on the 3rd floor several times. My PO Box is across the street. She likes to look out the window in the evenings. I’ve sat and stared at her a couple of times. Each time I’ve done this, her image slowly disappears.
