The historic hotel dates back to the early twentieth century, when it served as accommodation and as a boarding house for railroad workers and visitors. Previous owners and guests have been reporting paranormal occurrences throughout the building for over fifty years, including disembodied footsteps, ghostly laughter, doors opening and closing of their own accord amongst many other strange incidents. The hotel also features two rooms which are particularly haunted. In the Trupp Room, guests have reported voices, cold spots and have seen the apparition of a woman in an old-fashioned gown. In the Jessup Room, some claim to have encountered an entity who plays with the television, and who has been known to climb into bed with male guests. Other sightings include shadowy figures on the porch at night, a young girl running through the hallways and a spectral figure who has been known to appear behind people in mirrors.

  1. My husband and I stayed in the Cowboy Room in the early 2000s. I was awoken by the sound of footsteps running up and down the outside porch, then the tv was on full blast static. Felt the presence of a man in the room behind me, not malicious. Hid under the covers silently begging my husband to wake up. Felt someone pressing on my arm and hip – like trying to climb over me into the bed and pulling on the covers. It was then my husband woke up and said, please leave the room. And he did. It was super creepy!
