    1. A friend, her husband, her son, his wife and their daughter stayed in 2 separate rooms at this hotel and didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary until the next morning when her daughter in law found scribbles on the side of a pair a shorts she had taken off the night before. It looked like someone took a pen and worked on it for hours

      • I have spent many years in this hotel, and i can tell you it is not haunted. This hotel is from the 17th century, when buildings weren’t built that well. Certain areas in the hotel that were restored after the fire have drafts, and I do admit that I’ve felt “hair pulling”. It’s just the down draft from the chimney, and from the building itself.

      I worked at the Hotel Lenhart for two years when I was in high school during the summers. There is definitely something – or someone – that exists there. As a housekeeper, I experienced several creepy moments. When cleaning a suite, a door slammed behind me, locking me into a guest’s room. I had to radio the front desk to come upstairs to let me out. While waiting, the faucet in the bathroom turned on, tan for about ten seconds, and then turned off. It was only after asking under my breath of whomever was there would please let me go so I could keep working did he lock on the door unhinge. The catch? The door locks from the inside, like it should, but didn’t budge under ANY of my master keys.
