Sumpter Bed and Breakfast

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Sumpter Bed and Breakfast

This gold rush era building was built around 1900, and was formerly the town hospital. Now a delightful bed and breakfast inn, staff and guests have reported two apparitions throughout the establishment. The first is the apparition of a miner, who has been seen shaving in an upstairs bathroom. The second is a shadowy apparition known as ‘Jedidiah’, who does not want to communicate with people. His appearance is usually accompanied by disembodied footsteps and other strange noises.

  1. I spent several nights at the Sumpter Bed and Breakfast. First night, two of us were in what I think is called the Rose Room – and I was exhausted – and took the single bed, while by buddy took the double bed.

    I’d just gotten to sleep when I was shaken hard by the shoulder as one would experience if you were in a deep sleep, and someone was determined to wake you up. I raised my head, no one was in the room but me, and I said out loud – I’m tired, leave me alone – screw with Steve when he gets in. Nothing more in that room that night.

    Weeks later, I was in the Duke room, but per the photos, the bed was turned the other way in the room from what it is now. I woke up, and it was dark in there, with just a little light coming in the window – and you know you’re not alone.

    A female – can’t say exactly why I was convinced it was a woman, but she sat on the bed at the foot of the bed. Soaking up light. I was again tired and didn’t want to deal with it, so after a while with no action – I turned onto my side and slept. I stayed in that room three or four nights – and each night it was the same. This woman would sit on the bed at the foot of the bed. It was a bit creepy for a while, but fatigue soon overcame my awareness.

    And a few times, we’d be in the upstairs common area, reading, or talking, and the television would turn itself on – and just startle the crap out of everyone. We’d push the button in to turn if off, and it may come back on by itself later – most times it wouldn’t.

    Yeah, there’s some things weird there – but I never got any feeling of anything malevolent. More like things are there, but like furniture – they just come with the place.
