Haunted Hotel That Came Alive


I am now 43 years of age. Just recently in the past 4 years I found that I am very close to the other side and that I am a Medium, Psychic. I do not do this for a living but I will help out certain people if they need help. I had helped the O.P.P. Once on a case but in Canada they do not tend to use Psychic's for help.

My story happened when I was about 12 years old, I used to collect antique bottles for years when I was young and there was this hotel that was still standing that was from the middle of the 18th century. I was in the hotel and decided I was going to clean the place up since nobody bothered with the place. One day after school I was cleaning up this one room and heard music downstairs. I was a little bit freaked out since I knew I was only one there. As I was leaving the room I noticed the room got very cold and almost looked like frost was building up on the walls. The house seemed like it was coming alive. I quickly left the room and was standing on the second floor where the railing was above the room below where the hotel area used to be and noticed various people downstairs all gathered around drinking, dancing and making a lot of noise.

As a kid this was just a little bit too much for much for me and I decided to go down the stairs. As I was going down the stairs, someone took attention to me and then next thing I knew everybody was gone in a blur. I never did go back there and a few years later the place burnt down. My mother now owns the property and I can never forget what happened that day

Hello, Great story I believe you. I collected bottles my whole life too in upstate new york. I am also spiritually sensitive. I can relate to your story.

To Pricess Lotus Sounds like your a skeptic. Antique Bottles I collected for years and I would go several places to find them as well as other antiques. I not just cleaned 1 room in the hotel but the entire hotel. The hotel had no doors that were locked as well as I got in the house several other people had entered the building, this was in the 70's not a lot of restriction in that time. The reason I found out was a Medium, Psychic in my late 30's is because I was in 2 fatal car accidents back to back and that brought this other side to me at that time for what reason I do not know. About the incident with the police I have all the evidence you need here at home to prove that I was helping the Police with a case. Thank you

im having a hard time with this one. Can I ask what the antique bottles have to do with anything in this story? & what possessed a 12 year old to go clean an old hotel? How did you get in? Why did you just go up stairs to clean that one room? How did the hotel burn down? Have you any history of the hotel? Also which case did you assist the O.P.P. With? Is there record of that? And its interesting that it took you 38 or so years to find out that you are "very close to the other side" 🤔 so sorry for my curt attitude. But I find this one a little too hard to swallow. Forgive me if I'm wrong.

To cosmogal926: the Hotel was abandoned for several years. I was cleaning the rooms like the place was a big fort to myself was not scared of too much when I was younger until that day. Thank you for your input.

To cj: I have revisted the property and actually have picked up EMF meters and different paranormal devices and this summer will be investigating the property. Thank you for your input.

Sounds similar to a residual type of haunting. I'm curious though. How are you for certain that the said spirit took notice of you? Saying that it did would lean it more towards an intelligent haunting. However, the fact that there wasn't any interaction described between you and the said spirits (or so you never said one way or the other), would in some ways dismiss the idea of it being an intelligent haunting and therefore causes me to lean more toward it having been a residual haunting, an imprint of an event that once took place there.

Since your mother owns the property, now that you are older, have you ever revisited the land the hotel once stood on? I'm curious to know if you've experienced anything else on that land.

A very interesting experience indeed.

Thanks for sharing your experience! 😊

Exactly what I was thinking DeviousAngel it not being residual by the fact they acknowleged you, this was a great story is there anything on the land now? Even if there was something established there it could still be home to the same spirits, just a thought.

Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing your story! I got chills when you described how the windows were frosting over... That would trip me out! Since your mother owns the property, do you think you might be able to go back and do a few investigative readings, such as EMF/EVP readings? I'd be interested to see if you pick anything up. It may have been a residual haunting but judging by the way they disappeared when they realized they had your attention, maybe just a spirit party? 😊

Hmmm kind of sounds like a scene from the Shining. Was this hotel abandoned? If so, what would make you go in there by yourself to clean rooms? Your experience seems like it was residual. Too bad the place burnt down before anybody could investigate it. Thanks for sharing. 😊
