    1. Hello I have not stayed there. But a friend and I would like to stay there sometime and take pic and EVP. But we would need to know where in there would be the best place to do the things in the inn. And yes you would get a set of pic and EVP. Hope to talk sometime.

    2. I was working as a camp counselor at Tripp Lake Camp back in the summer of 1995 & 1996. Because of the proximity to the camp, we used to frequent Poland Spring Inn to get a bite to eat and a drink. One night a group of us were there, sitting in the Gazebo and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a person walking the on the lawn. The other counselors didn’t see it and wondered what I was looking at. I explained what I saw. Strange but true, a man (ghost) walking the lawn at night.

    3. I stayed in the Hiram Riccar cottage at the beautiful Poland spring Resort. The night before leaving, I had a visitor in my room. They took a seat at the end of my bed. My sister, in another room, had an experience the same night. Someone came into the bedroom and stood at the head of the bed. My cousin, in another cottage on the other side of the property, had an experience that SAME night! It may seem unbelievable, but, it is all 100% true! When I went to check out the museum from the World’s Fair and spoke to the attendant, I was told I looked JUST like Hiram Riccar’s daughter! FREAKY!! But awesome and I loved the resort!!
