    1. Coins dropping on counter in middle of the night in our room and our real fire in wood burning fire place going completely out and then back into roaring fire before our eyes.

    2. Stayed in Rosie’s room. Bed shaking a lot. Smell of flowers that followed us to the restaurant in town There are also kids spurts there woke up to something trying to take my toe ring off. Woke up to people walking and talking my in the hallway but we wet the only people staying there. Woke up to a party going on at 2AM people walking downstairs laughing doors shutting etc only problem was the bar and hotel closed and locked at 1AM. My adult kids next door had spirit in bathroom who smells like body odor hence the staff call him BO. Pretty eventful 2. night stay.
