    1. 7/21/2013 The Virginian Hotel is not closed. Far from it. I just came home today from a weekend there and had a wonderful time. Plus the paranormals were active all night long doing their thing. Clean, friendly, good food and drink a great place to stay!!

    2. My girlfreind and i . Stayed there for two days . We didnt stay in the . Old hotel its self but the new rooms added… our first night well lets just say . Im still confussed about what happened. Is this place haunted . Very much so

    3. We have stayed there in the old hotel several times and once in the new rooms. We never saw or heard any paranormals. We did have great stays each time. the first time my husband did jump out of bed because of the train.

      • Do you know who to contact to investigate? They messaged us on Facebook and we responded but haven’t heard back from them. We would love to do an investigation there. We are the Goshen Paranormal Society!

        • My sister and I have an investigation team and we just stayed one night for an investigation this month. You don’t really need to talk to anyone about doing an investigation, all you need to do is rent rooms but you need and you’re welcome to investigate there. The staff is very accommodating and I think they enjoy the attention of the investigators. At the time we investigated only three rooms have been booked for the night. We had some really good experiences and got quite a bit of video evidence.

    4. We stayed there 5/21/22. The entire night was active. From apparitions to voices and lots of things moving about. Drawers opening and closing, piano being played, even a child saying daddy in my room. It was not disappointing at all. The service and food was fantastic as well.
