    1. We went for our anniversary and within 5 minutes of being there the sink next to the bed turned on full blast both hot and cold. Shortly after my wife was talking a shower and the bathroom lights were tuned off on her. I definitely think it’s haunted.

      I was awakened by laughing in the middle of the night. I tried to fully wake up but was stuck in that state between sleeping and waking. I was still aware enough to know where I was. A large women in a dress was laughing at me just outside my door. She walked in and walked back out yet my actual door never opened or shut.
