  1. Can confirm. I grew up part of my child life in the cabin across from it. My mom cleaned it as a odd job, and we used to sneak around it. We heard and seen weird stuff, and my mom felt someone watching her.

  2. I lived there for six months…used to be a paranormal investigator myself…definitely more than a residual haunting here. Had lights turn off and on…boy throwing food..sandwiches all across room…orbs caught in photos…mischievous spirits and the balcony is one of sulphur smells and hot temperatures…despair feelings up there.
