The Wauwinet Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  The Wauwinet Hotel

The hotel is rumored to be built on Native American burial grounds, which some say have led to its being haunted. Lights turn on by themselves, and there is a ghostly unexplained sound of running water in the lobby. Footsteps have been heard, and an apparition of a woman seen out of the corner of the eye has a scent of flowers: gardenias or roses.
