These ghost hunting events always seem to just fly by! You arrive and before you know it, they are over.
As I was about to leave Estes Park, there was a snow storm brewing up over the mountains and I could see it coming and I was glad that I was leaving early so I would miss it and be able to fly home and not be stuck at the Denver airport.
Luckily, it was not too early either so I could see driving down the windy, wet roads and not worry as much as I would before sunrise of hitting all the wildlife that crosses the roads. You still have to be careful up there but I knew closer to lunch, the less likely the wild animals would be out.
The rooms of the Stanley that are purported to be haunted are:
Room 401 - Lord Dunraven's room. He was the original owner and it is said that people can sometimes see a man standing in the closet and many provoke him. It's also said that he watches women dress.
Room 407 - Footsteps are heard outside this room's door and noted that it appeared that someone sat on the bed as you see the indentation but no one is there.
Room 428 - Noises are heard, a man pacing the room and has kissed women on the forehead and left. It is said to be a cowboy ghost with a hat.
Room 412 - Bed levitating and a woman hysterical. This is known as the poltergeist room.
Room 418 - A boy spirit here named Matthew.
Room 217 - Stephen King Suite, where he stayed and got the idea to write The Shining.
This room is where Jim Carey was to stay while filming Dumb & Dumber but he only remained within for like an hour and he came running back down to the front desk with his bags and said he would not remain there and would be staying elsewhere. To this day, he has not spoken of just what happened in that room.
My room the first year I stayed here, Room 215 is right next to this one and it is where I got my first EVP. Check out my posts of it in the archives here on this blog!
