  1. I stayed at the Plantation Inn about 11 years ago and I have told numerous people about my experience there. This evening my daughter and I was talking about the remake of the movie Roots and we got on the subject of ghost. I reminder her about my experience at The Plantation Inn and she didn’t remember the entire story I told her, but here it is.

    The first night I stayed at the Inn, I was a little unsettled because I felt like I should not be there. It was just a feeling I had because the look of the place reminded me of the “big house” with slave quarters on each side. I even mentioned it to my white co-worker and she just kind of laughed it off. Anyway, later that night when I went to bed, and I am a very light sleeper, but about 30 minutes after I got in bed, I was still awake but just about to fall asleep, I felt tugging on the bed spread, I opened my eyes and laid there very still, then it happened again. At this time I was scared, but I got up and looked around and opened the closet door, looked around the bed, but no one or nothing was there. So I said a prayer to God and went back to bed and went to sleep.

    I told my co-worker what happened and I told the lady at the front desk, but I don’t think she really think she believed me, but she just kind of laughed it off. I walked around the Inn inside and out and went to the golf shop which was a short walk from the inn, but I kept looking back at the Inn, and I still had a feeling that slaves lived there at one point. I still don’t know if this is true or not. But the second night, before I went to bed and I checked around the entire room, double checked the lock on the door. I watched tv for a while, then I turned off the TV and started dosing off and it happened again, this time the tugging was harder. Finally, I said out loud “look I have to be here because of my job, please leave me alone, I am leaving here tomorrow. I’m sorry for what happened to you, but please leave me alone.” I said my prayers again and fell asleep and it didn’t happen again. After the meetings I was rushing to get out of there. Every year, I talk about my experience at this Inn. It’s something I will never forget.

  2. I was sleeping and i woke up feeling wierd and i opened my eyes and i saw something and then i looked again and i saw a man (i think he was black) at the end of the bed just standing there i started screming and i woke up the people that were sleeping in my room. This happened around 3:50 in the morning but the clock was stopped at 3:30 and the time never changed. This happened in room 107.

  3. We are staying in the orchid hall of the hotel, and I do not, nor have I felt anything out of the ordinary. I believe people are letting their imaginations run wild because of the setting of this beautiful old place. I wouldn’t say it is haunted.
