  1. I stayed in this one, pregnant with my first son, in early 1980, with his dad up on the third floor, Room 307. about 1:30 am I woke up to something I could not see pulling the blankets off the bed. My son’s dad sat up asking why I was doing this, when he noticed I was still in bed, looking dumb-founded. He started to say something, when the closet door flung open, and a non dimentional grey-ish mist floated out and the out the door. The next morning, we could not find our bag we unpacked after getting settled into our room.

  2. My husband and I volunteered for 3 years there 2016-2019. Our first night volunteering I was standing at the foot of the stairs in the lobby and I felt something pull my long one was behind me.
