    1. I am a paranormal investigator and psychic medium and we have investigated this location several times. We have never been disappointed. We have heard voices and music, seen objects move, seen strange lights and captured several unexplainable things on video and in photographs. I believe the depot just outside their door is haunted as well. Do feel welcomed though! It would seem all the spirits are good ones! I will try to attach the picture of a spirit that was captured on my birthday after I had politely had asked the ghosts for a picture to include them as a birthday gift. I was delighted with the results. examine it closely. Please feel free to check out more on my web site and there will be more to come! We will return here again and again!

    2. My name is Jesse B , I stayed here one night close to September 1, 2017 not knowing it was supposedly haunted.
      There are only 4 rooms to rent with the upstairs locked with no way up and definitely not to the area above the rooms (all 4 rooms are right together and on the first floor)
      We had dinner and drinks in the restaurant which were amazing by the way, and went to bed. I swear right near 3 am (I Know) something crashed I mean banged horribly loud directly above our room on the second floor! And then water began to run through the piping , feet stomping through the hall followed by quiet , dead quiet and then finger nails running down the hall way on wall to our door !!! And a few light giggles at the knob!!! It was the most horrifying thing I ever experienced I was frozen I literally couldn’t move it was absolutely a real haunting but like nothing I’ve heard or read that employees say about shadows and kids bla bla , I would like to say I’m not easily convinced nor do I think it’s funny to act like I heard a voice or saw a ghost… this happened! I could absolutely feel this thing around me lying in my bed frozen stiff…
      We were the only guests no one else was in the building, it was a weekend, the upstairs is offices locked down you can’t even walk past the top of the stairs I tried it’s gated and locked. Most real thing I’ve ever been a witness to , on complete accident!!! Holy cow!

      • Hey! So me and my mom stayed there like 6 years ago and we kept being awoken by knocks, laughing and talking and the bathroom light kept turning on. But also one night my mom stated that “I” tapped on her shoulder and kept a trying to wake her up but when she did I would be asleep
