      Our team was here recently now its closed we were the last , Oct 18th 2014 . My wife and I felt a girl bouncing on the bed still reviewing evidence but looks like we may have caught a doppelganger on full spectrum also several spirits very haunted the place can be rented for private paranormal investigations by contacting us for the owners number

      • I realize this property has been closed for some time, but I was wanting to find out if you knew whether or not if the owner is still renting it out for investigations? Any info and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    2. When I first moved to the area I stopped at the Shaffer Hotel since it was so interesting looking. A slender older man was standing behind the fence to the right of the hotel. He was really friendly, said hello to me as I was admiring the stone work. He told me that this was HIS place. He talked about the work he did and repeatedly told me, and my husband who eventually got bored and went back to the car, that this was his place, his work. He invited me to his home which he said was just up the road where he said he had sculptures to show me. He extended the invitation several times. I eventually said goodbye not thinking a whole lot about it other than the man was very nice and truly wanted me to know that this was his place and HIS work. I even considered his invitation to his home to see his work yet I never did however now I am glad that I didn’t since they would have thought I was nuts. Years later when I got online to see if a new restaurant had gone into the Shaffer Hotel I saw an article about “Pop” Shaffer. He was the man who was standing by the hotel talking to me and my husband years prior however he had passed away long before that day. I discovered that the house he directed me to when asking me to stop by and see his work was Pop Shaffer’s Rancho Bonito. He pointed to where I would turn to get to his place and told me several times to come by and see him and his work. I am honored to have met him, or his ghost…although, he looked as real, as solid in the flesh and anybody…nothing unusual.
