Laguna Vista Lodge

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Laguna Vista Lodge

The Historic Saloon at Laguna Vista Lodge dates back to 1898, and was frequented by the crew working on the movie Lonesome Dove. On exhibit here are gold nuggets from the old mining days, used in long-ago casino bets. The upstairs portion of the original hotel was once a brothel, and a female ghost is said to reside there, also seen in the dining room. Although she is the most well-known of the ghosts, poltergeist activity also is reported here, and a ghostly bride is believed to wait in the Honeymoon Suite for her husband’s return. Legend has it that they were on their honeymoon when the husband went hunting and simply disappeared.

  1. Last week while staying at the Laguna Vista Lodge we were having dinner in the restaurant and a woman appeared to the right of me with her hand on her hip after a minuter or so she was standing at a table behind me which was occupied by 4 men one of which had on a cowboy hat, round glasses, blue eyes and boots,she stood very close to him, and slowly walked around the table as to check him out from all sides, I told the waitress what I was seeing and she told me to comeback when the restaurant closed and she would take me upstairs.
    We left and I returned about 7;45 that evening and the cowboy was siting outside with 2 of his friends, the waitress had told him what I had seen while having dinner and told him I would be back about closing time, I spoke to him as I entered the restaurant and the waitress came to show me upstairs and I told her the cowboy was outside and would it be alright if I asked him to come upstairs with us, which he did. we went upstairs and I asked him to sit in one of the rooms
    which he did and the lady appeared to me standing in front of him, I told him to talk to her at which time the waitress and I walked outside the room as I had the strong feeling the lady did not want us in the room. After a few minutes of him talking to her he felt something touch him on the leg, at the same time I had said to the waitress she just toughed his leg.
    During our visit which was 8/9/2015 thru 8/14/2015 on two occasions in our room we smelled a very strong scent of roses .
    The cowboy told me while we were upstairs he may have seen her dressed in a white dress pass by him.
    I would like to send pics that I took to this cowboy, so if anyone hears of this experience please have him contact me. Thank you
