Haunt ME was super excited to participate in another Strange Escapes event at the Washington Hotel back in November. For the record, this is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen. It’s amidst the gorgeous White Mountains in New Hampshire. When you walk in it feels like you stepped into history, AND it has paranormal activity.
Mount Washington, a history
The property is haunted by a Princess for who loved to vacation there. Wife of Joseph Stickney, Carolyn quickly became a widow after her wealthy husband passed a year after completion of the hotel. She loved the Mount Washington so much she had her bedroom set sent over from the south of France and housed in her favorite room (a room which you can say in, along with the original bed.) Every night in the dinning room she would have a singular table set up for her, a tradition the staff keeps up to this day.
Our Favorite Spots
On this trip we had a chance to explore the Princess’ room, the graveyard on premises, the Bretton Arms Inn, and the stables. If you want a fun, easy going ghost adventure, check out the Strange Escapes VIP event coming up in May. You’ll see Haunt ME‘s Ty Gowen, presenting a Ghost Hunting 101 lecture about everything you need to know about going on a ghost hunt!
The Princess Room is beautiful and we got some interesting evidence. Other places like the presidential wing left us with more questions than answers; shadow play, minor K2 hits, what is hanging around in the hotel’s newest addition. I think the most unnerving place was the Bretton Arms Inn with rows and rows of empty rooms with closed doors just waiting for something to peek their head around. Spooky.
The highlight of this weekend was the opportunity we had to sit down and discuss one of the most terrifying and confusing experiences with the paranormal: the box. Check out our blog post and all of the theories surrounding this mysterious object.
