  1. We stayed there and had experiences. We stayed in the James Anderson suite. When I was sitting in the living room on the love seat I kept getting this tingling sensation and goosebumps up my whole right side and only right side. I would happen then go away. Maybe 3-5 minutes in between occurrences lasting for about the same length of time and it happened about 4 times. When you walk into the hotel you just feel something. Later that evening we went out to eat at Charlie’s the restaurant downstairs and when we came back everything felt ok. We went to bed around midnight. I bet I only got 3 hours of sleep total. Something just kept waking me up. Nothing was scaring me just keeping me up. I was sitting up in bed watching espn and out of nowhere my heart started to race uncontrollably and I felt super anxious. I had a really hard time shaking the feeling but eventually did and got back to sleep. I was back up again at 5am and used the bathroom. While I was in there I heard a very loud bang coming from the bedroom. I called out to my husband who was asleep in the bed and he said it felt like something had kicked the bed so hard it woke him up. Definitely an interesting place if your into history and the paranormal. Also one of the cleaning ladies told us one of the lumberjack’s wife’s had kept from the 3rd floor balcony and took her own life. She also add that, “people had died there.”

  2. The whole story is a straight up lie! That used to be coopers grocery store! I grew up in stillwater so did my dad. Wow the lies people tell to get business is pathetic! Try the high bridge north of town. Now thats haunted!
