Colorado’s Haunted Hotels Will Give You Nightmares
I use to live in Missouri and about every other weekend I would travel to Eureka Springs Arkansas and stay at the Crescent Hotel. The Crescent Hotel started out as a Hotel and Spa because of the hot springs in Arkansas. Word quickly spread that the hot springs were healing waters and touted as a cure for certain ailments. However, when people came not everyone was cured. Therefore, it was not long that the hotel shut down.
In 1937 a man named, Norman Baker arrived, bought the hotel and turned it into a hospital that claimed to cure cancer. Therefore, the story goes onto say that it is haunted. Not everyone likes knowing this, however; I was not afraid and asked to stay in one of the rooms with more paranormal activity.
Since the hospital claimed a cure for cancer, many people died and one room they claimed is haunted is room number 218 and I stayed in it. I did experience creepy noises that I could not explain.
These are the Haunted Houses on my bucket list for Colorado.
The Stanely Hotel, Estes Park, Colo.
The Stanely Hotel, Estes Park, I can't wait to stay in this hotel where they filmed the Shining. I've heard that rooms 407 and 418 have a lot of paranormal activity.
Hand Hotel Bed And Breakfast, Fairplay, Colo.
This hotel has only 11 rooms and looks simple and rustic. I would love to spend some time staying and getting know the area and if Grandma's rocking chair starts rocking by itself. That might make me run.
The Brown Palace, Denver, Colo.
The Brown Palace the second oldest hotel in Denver built in 1892. Several rooms including the basement are said to be haunted. Rumor has it that a Denver socialite lived in room 904 from 1940 to 1955 15 years. Later when the hotel began to give tours they told of the woman's story of lost love and heartbreak. The Hotel began receiving phone calls from 904 and after they stopped including her story in the tour, The phone calls stopped.
Do you know if there are any other haunted houses or hotels in the area?
