  1. 2nd time here and this haunting experience was worse than the last. 2 years ago the ghost hid our food, hid our cocktails under a towel, deadbolted our room door while we were downstairs at the restaurant and pinched my wife all night while we slept.

    Tonight, the experience was much more n our face from the moment we arrived. We heard walking on creaky floorboards outside our door for about 10 minutes. We wondered who the heck was pacing the hall. The moment I opened the door it stopped. Tried to replicate the sound on the carpet covered hall and could not.

    A half hour later as we sat on the bed watching TV my wife said, “It’s right there!” and pointed to the corner of the room at the foot of the bed. I could feel it and agreed. About 3 minutes later she looked up and pointed to the opposite side of the room and said. “There it goes!”, and at that same moment our door opened. It walked around our bed and exited the room through the door. I don’t believe it needed to open the door to exit. I think it opened the door to make a statement and/or to make sure it was noticed. We’re leaving, and we’re going to sleep in the car.
