  1. My wife and I spent three nights here, we were visiting family here in Kentucky. The first night was pretty calm, nothing out of the ordinary happened. The second and third night however, were pretty strange. The second night, I placed my toothbrush, toothpaste etc on top of the vanity in the restroom. My wife had also placed her items on top of the vanity, around 3 am, I heard a noise that came from the restroom. I got up to see what it was and I found all of our toiletries had been thrown on the floor. I picked everything up and placed them back on top of the vanity.Later that morning, we left to eat breakfast and do some shopping. When we returned later that afternoon, everything in the restroom was on the floor. Towels, wash cloths, bar soap, everything was thrown on the floor. I called the front desk and told them what happened. The manager came to the room and took pictures and apologized. He told us that a certain elderly gentleman was probably the culprit. He offered to give us another room, but we opted to stay where we were.Later that night, before we went to sleep,we took note of everything, how it was placed. We took pictures to compare “before” and “after”. We then went to sleep, around 2:45 a.m, I awoke to use the restroom. As I walked around the bed, I noticed that all of the drawers of the dresser had been pulled open, the clothes were still in there.The chair that was placed at the little table was flipped on its side. I left everything the way I found it and showed my wife the next morning. We called the manager again and he took some pictures and then told us the story of the gentleman whom they suspected was doing this. We left later that day and vowed to return and stay in the same room. It was creepy, but fun too.
