Reports differ as to the reason for the hauntings at The Broadmoor. Some say there was a fire here in the past, others say there wasn’t. Regardless, some employees have seen a lady in 1920s clothing walking around the main building. They speculate that she may be the ghost of Countess Portales, the wife of the Count who built the original casino building, torn down in the 1990s.

    I actually know a lot about this haunted location, due to the fact that The Broadmoor hotel was actually owned my my family on my mother’s side. I was told that the person that haunts the Broadmoor Hotel is in fact Julie Penrose. The original Owner’s wife. The story went that she went missing and a week before she died, she was found naked in the forest behind the hotel. She didn’t know how or why she was there or naked. She is said to be haunting the penthouse where she lived. Lights would turn off and on, some things would be misplaced, and even some of the staff wouldn’t go in there due to the paranormal activity. The Hotel(my mother told me) has even went to the extent of hiding some of the details. If you have any questions feel free to email me at

  2. well i am an employee at the Braodmoor and i am a night cleaner. When you go into the basement you can hear somthing walking behind you and you turn around there is no one there. You can also hear what it sounds like people talking but no one is down there. While working it seems like i see a person and i look again an there is nothing.
