So my birthday was coming up and it was spring break for me. My mom wanted to go to somewhere warm and beachy, but I disagreed and we ended up going to Estes Park, Colorado, in the heart of the rocky mountains. I have wanted to be a ghost hunter for a while, and I watch all of the paranormal shows, and I heard of The Stanley Hotel, and I pleaded to go there, future career right?
So there are so many stories and tales at the Stanley, and it was amazing. When we got there I gasped in pure awe, it was the most beautiful place I have ever been! It looked kind of run-down outside, but inside was fully furnished and everything was working as if it were a new and improved hotel of 2010. We took the ghost tour, and I learned a ton, and I’m truly thankful for that. Guess what! If you have ever visited The Stanley,� you probably know about room 401 and kooky Lord Dunraven who resides in there… Well we got room 402, only a glossy- gold elevator separated the rooms. It was a cozy room, very hospitable and nice.
That night we had dinner in their restaurant in the hotel, and I had quite cool experiences. I was eating some salmon and I saw a man with white muttonchops, and goatee in a black suit. I looked up from my plate and he was gone. When I was eating again, I saw in my peripheral vision, a shadow man, in the shape of the first man I saw. I looked at a pamphlet and it said that F.O. Stanley roamed the main level, bar, and restaurant. So you think Mr. Stanley was trying to find out my opinion of his cook’s food? Then that night I felt a male presence standing at my bedside watching me. The next day I went down to the Billiard room (keep in mind, there is no more pool table room, and no more card playing room, and the hotel is ALL non-smoking)� So I walked in and in one spot there was cigar smoke, then it moved away, it was not staying in one place at all. That night I met up with an older girl and her mother from the tour, and two other adults who stayed in the hotel met up with us for an investigation.
With my knowledge and skill I brought a stuffed animal and two batteries for trigger objects for these ghost children that roam the 4th floor halls. During our investigation I checked on the batteries and they moved up three feet, and apart! The toy did not move a centimeter. The other people brought an orange, big batteries, and tape recorder. They didn’t say anything that happened on the recorder, but a chunk was taken out of the orange, there wasn’t before. The big batteries did not move. But she caught a video of the ghost children running up and down the hallway. Later they knocked on my door saying their lights were flickering to their questions, they also caught that on video. I went to their room and we asked questions and it flickered back. There were many experiences, some I did not say. But if you like ghost hunting and the paranormal, stay on the fourth floor or in room 217 The Stephen King suite. Any questions ask below.
