Rayburn Lodge

According to local lore, while the mid-1900s building stood abandoned for several years, some teens broke in and held a seance. Afterward, they saw a lumberjack coming toward them from the river. He pointed at them and vanished, scaring the teens half to death. According to locals, the ghostly lumberjack still roams the grounds around the lodge.

  1. BS – The lodge was moved to it’s current location almost 20 years ago.
    I owned the lodge for 12 years – no ghosts – ridiculous!
