Ghosts!

AMERICA'S MOST HAUNTED RESORT HOTEL?
The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa
Eureka Springs, Arkansas




Theme Thursday.....Ghosts!

The drive to this Hotel is worth the trip! It is located on the top of a mountain with the quaint city below. Take the winding road to the top and the view is spectacular! For the history, more stories and ghost photos click here

GHOST STORIES FROM OUR GUESTS
Others Tell Their Tales Unexplainable things have been seen, odd noises have been heard, strange occurrences have happened. Our guests tell their stories of what they have seen and heard in the haunted hotel.

Never Been One to Believe
Steve Garrison, a cook for the hotel's Crystal Dining Room restaurant for the past fourteen years recounts, "I've lived here (Eureka Springs) all my life and I have never been one to believe this stuff." That all changed two different mornings in the restaurant's kitchen.

Morning 1: Garrison was "slicing and dicing" vegetables when he looked up and saw a little boy with "pop bottle" glasses, dressed in very old-looking clothes such as knickers, who was skipping around the kitchen.

Morning 2: When opening that same kitchen early one morning he flipped on the lights only to see "some or all of the pots and pans come flying off their hooks." He was quick to add, "I don't drink on the job. In fact, I don't drink... period."



Members of TAPS, The Atlantic Paranormal Society as they arrive along with a crew from the Sci-Fi Channel to film a segment featuring the ghosts of the Crescent Hotel for the Sci-fi Channel's show, "Ghost Hunters".

We spent a pleasant weekend at the Crescent years ago, didn't encounter any ghosts!!! But we made sure to locate the exit on the floor we were on/ha

Have a good day with no ghosts!!!!!

That is a magnificent hotel but also spooky looking...why is it the first thing I thought of was THE SHINING and that maniacal face of Jack Nicholson!

REDRUM!

ACK!

Oh, great post! So much history in this hotel, did you know it used to be a cancer hospital?

Betsy said...

A cancer hospital? Well, that explains a lot!
Oh my!

Roy said...

Heh, heh! I had the same reaction as Jill - I automatically thought of the Overlook Hotel. "Heeeeere comes Johnny!" REDRUM indeed.

VE said...

I think I've seen the Shining too many times too. I find hotels creepy enough. Having all the pots and pans physically move might make it difficult to want to get started working...

sounds like a wonderful place to visit..although, unlike tht ecook, it may drive me to drinking just to make sense of it. spooky!

Hah! Reminds me of the Borden house from my hometown. Yes, the Lizzie Borden house.

I never heard any rumors of it being haunted UNTIL it was turned into a Bed-and-Breakfast. THEN there were rumors of 'someone' haunting the rooms. Hahahahaha

I'm in SE Mo, so it would be a bit of a trip across the state of Arkansas, but might be worth it to see a ghost! hehehe

I watch Ghost Hunters every week - love that show!

About yesterday...I want that sandwich. I don't want to go buy the stuff... I just want it (o:
About haunted Hotels i live 30 min. away from the Stanley in Estes Park Co. I can't even drive by it without thinking of the 'Shinning'.

It does look as if a spirit or two might be lurking within those walls!

TAPS should go check out my old house! Spoooooky post, indeed! And that link...

Solar Powered said...

What about the ghost tour you can take and they take you down where the women were treated for cancer...the room still exists! Plus it was a safe house during the Civil War. I'm not staying there ever again. It totally creeps me out.

Sounds fascinating!

Baino said...

Certainly has the credentials for a spookfest!

Kate Hanley said...

I don't know if I believe in ghosts but I love it when I hear ghost stories because it always makes me wonder. I'd love to stay at this hotel.

Joyce said...

Not sure I would spend the night there:)

Megan said...

Ooh, I'd totally like to stay there. And yes, I'd look for the exit!

Would be cool to visit that hotel, but think it's off my list. Don't think I could *lol*
