  1. Almost thirty years ago we spent an Easter weekend in the corner downstairs room in the front of the hotel. With the lights out after dark, the room was pitch black. At some point during the night, both my husband and I awakened to a “swishing” noise like the sound of a starched skirt coming toward us from the location of the door. In fact, my husband grabbed my hand, so I knew he heard it too. The noise stopped by the bed, and I felt a hand pat my thigh. While it was disconcerting, it wasn’t threatening but rather seemed to be a gesture of comfort. Then the swishing noise retreated. The next morning I asked at the desk about the room being haunted, and I was told that the room was once the labor room of the hospital and was likely haunted by the ghost of a nurse! It made perfect sense because I was about six month pregnant at the time! We never returned, but I did recently see a show on TV about that particular room being haunted.. I seem to be the sort of person who attracts spirits, and this was only one of many times I have experienced a ghost. I am positive that’s what it was!
