  • Northern Haunt

    I use to work at the Anchor Inn for 3 years. While there I had alot of unexplained experiences. Many times I was washing dishes and a shadow figure would come stand next to me. I was not afraid I felt like it was supervising me or something. A couple other occasions I was upstairs and seen a young woman in a flowing gown and blonde hair. I knew it was not a living person as I was up there alone. A few times the bathroom faucets turned on and off n their own. An twice I heard old time music coming from upstairs, when no one was up there. There are alot more experiences, too many to tell. It was an interesting place to work.

  • Haunted Hotel

    I work at the Anchor Inn and I am a tour guide for the haunted tours. I have had hundreds of experiences and unexplained things happen. I've seen objects move by themselves. I've heard voices, knocking and footsteps. I've also seen an apparition of a woman upstairs one night, when I was up there alone. Later I seen a picture of the old owner who was deceased and I could not believe it. It was that same lady I seen. Another time I was up there with another woman and we both heard a breath in between us. It was a loud exhale. And it was not from either of us. I've heard my name called out many times and it was not any living person. And I've seen glasses fly off the booths by themselves with no one near them. I have been there a long time and I get stories from customers all the time about stuff happening to them while they are there. And our tour guests get EVP's and unexplained pictures and touched all the time and see & hear things. I have never had a tour group leave disappointed since I have been doing them for 2 years.

  • the haunted inn

    I am a former bartender/server. I worked there for almost 3 years. I worked mostly the daytime shift and sometimes would be there alone. I would always hear noises & voices when no one was around. I seen the faucets turn on by themselves a few times. And I seen objects move. One time a heavy brass helmet was sitting on a shelf and I had a few customers at the bar. The helmet went flying off the shelf like someone threw it. It did not drop off, it flew across the bar and hit the floor so hard it put a dent in it. The customers seen it too and they were shocked. I had many customers report faucets turning on or hearing things or seeing things and being touched.

  • my haunted job

    I've been a bartender at the Anchor Inn for 6 years. I have had numerous experiences there, too many to tell. A few of the ones that stand out the most are these. One time I was closing for the night and I was by myself. My girlfriend was waiting for me to do my closing duties. I turned around and standing in the hall looking at me, was a man. He was tall and broad shouldered. He was dressed in old clothing, like a lumberjack. He was there a minute, then disappeared. Another time I was upstairs in one of the rooms alone, and I went to set something on the table and I felt & heard a breath on my neck and in my ear. It freaked me out and I ran out. Another time I closed up and left for the night and realized I left my phone behind. So I went back to get it. As soon as I entered I looked up and seen a young girl standing in the hallway looking at me. She looked like a teenager and wore an old fashioned white gown. I grabbed my phone and she came towards me. I was startled, so I just ran out real fast and got out of there.

  • Haunted Anchor Inn

    I was upstairs during a daytime tour and I seen a lady walking by the doorway of the room I was in. She had old fashioned clothes, a long flowing gown, hair swept up and was in her twenties. I watched her a moment, then realized she wasn't touching the floor, but floating above it. Then she disappeared. Another time I visited, I went to use the bathroom in the ladies room and when I went to go in the stall door was locked from the inside. The staff had to come crawl under & unlock it. But there had been no children there that day or around it was all older people, who could not of locked it like that. Then when I was going to the bathroom, I heard the water faucet turn on. i thought someone came in, but I went out to see no one there, never heard the loud creaky door open or close, and I was alone. yet the faucet was on.
