Wawona Hotel and Restaurant

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Wawona Hotel and Restaurant

The 1876 hotel and restaurant is rumoured to be haunted by a ghostly airman, whose plane crashed on the grounds during the 1920’s. Staff have reported seeing his apparition, dressed in a leather jacket, pilot’s cap, goggles, and a white silk scarf. The spirit appears to be mainly confined to the Moore Cottage, an 1894 outbuilding in which the pilot died from his injuries sustained in the accident.
