  1. About 10 or twelve 12 years ago. A friend and I, stayed in the wicker Room for five days. I was aware of the stories of it being haunted before hand. Had a interesting experience one night. Woke in the middle of the night, to see the flickering of gold light on the walls. It reminded me of the flickering of a fireplace fire. Knowing this light could not be coming in from an outside source. I turned to scan rest of room. Making sure there was no fire. I saw nothing in the room. Returned my attention back to where I saw the original light dancing on wall. Everything had ceased. Take it for what it’s worth. A true story.

  2. This wasn’t taken in front of the windward house, although it was taken while my boyfriend and I were on the ghost tour walk. Pretty Creepy!

    during one of our stays at the Windward in the front 2nd floor room with balcony access at night we heard several sessions of footsteps as though someone going to the bathroom. when asked the owners if there was a room above us they replied no but that during the civil war, the space above was used as a hospital for soldiers and nurses would walk back and forth.

  4. Stayed in the wicker room in 1998 I think it was. We heard tons of sudden banging commotion just around outside the door when we went to sleep, like boxes or heavy things banging, so wed open the door to look and nothing, no boxes, and complete silence no noises. Wed get back into bed and less then a minute or two later, it would start again.. I think there was only one other room on this top floor and the couple staying there was much older and were out like hours before this when wed come it somewhere between 11-2am This happened a few more times. I was always afraid to open my eyes so I hid under the covers and I didnt ever want to walk into our room first when wed come in from wherever we were. So much pins and needles would start whirling all over my face and whiffs of this jasmine like perfume, that would smell so strong and then disappear as strongly as it came. Haha I felt sick after we had dinner at Carneys and I was lying there on the bed and the perfume just started overwhelming me and I felt a concerned energy around me. Just saying- it was an unforgettable experience.
