  1. Maplewood hotel of Lily Dale is MOST DEFINITELY haunted. My mother and I booked a room there for 3 days and 2 nights.

    We first had our encounter around 9:30pm on the first night. We heard foot steps going up and down the stairs. We staked out the hallway to find NO ONE walking up or down the stairs with the sounds clear as day still happening. Freaked us out, but we watched happy kitten videos and fell asleep. Next night we had the pleasure of having someone sit at the foot of our bed. We both promptly jumped up and noticed that the end of our blanket that looked disturbed. The kicker was, we were only in bed for 5 minutes so it wasn’t our doing. The spirit also wasnt a fan of my beverages being left on the dresser. They would end up on the floor. Thankfully all bottled up.

  2. Hello, just got back from the Maplewood hotel of Lily Dale. I was in room 2 with a friend, first room up the stairs to the right side. I was visiting the village with a friend. Around 3:00 AM, I saw someone sitting on the edge of the next bed close to me, I tough it was my friend not been about to sleep.

    As I gave a closer look, I’ve notice he had a beard and moustache but my friend had none of that!Around 40 years old. He was staring at the window, right over me as I was in the bed near that window…. I’ll try to see some old pictures of the people of Lily Dale to find who he might be.

    He vanished in front of me! I knew for sure, that was a ghost, I’ve noticed as he got away, my friend was sleeping behind in that same bed and didn’t wake up at the time. Next morning, my friend told me, he heard someone breathing close to him twice during the night but on the other side toward the wall and NOT toward me!

    In that same morning, the extra blanket end up been on the floor and very nicely put in place, properly folded as if someone did it during the night!

    I’ll have to say thanks you for that extra room service! I heard that his name might be Charlie. I’ll be searching the net to find out some informations and if I could see a picture as his face as it’s still fresh in my memory.

    It was only a single night but what a night, the experience has been great. I hope I could do it again in the futur.
