During a recent trip to Colorado we stayed two nights at the Historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. Upon arrival I was disappointed, I had envisioned a grand hotel nestled majestically in a valley of mountains. Well, seeing how there is a Safeway at the bottom of the hill and I could throw a stone and hit the houses behind, I was a little sad. Inside there were TONS of armature “ghost hunters” roaming the hallways with tape recorders, microphones, and camcorders. Most of these people were not even guest of the Hotel, and this went on until almost daybreak. We decided to go on the history and ghost tour and that was the saving grace of the experience. We learned a lot of history which is amazing and I can say that FO Stanley accomplished much in his life and would have been an amazing person to know.

We found out that the 4th floor (which is where we were staying) was where the children and nannies stayed back in the day. There have been stories of children roaming the halls and that their distant laughter, and their running feet could be heard in the hallways. There were also stories about candy, how candy has been known to attract the children of yesteryear. One of the stories was about a couple that had stayed two rooms down from us, they had taken taffy (which is supposed to be a favorite) and placed it in their closet and went down to dinner, when they returned the taffy was all unwrapped.

While we were in Denver we visited “Hammond’s Cadies”, a wonderful place with nice people. We grabbed several things and so I thought this was a beautiful opportunity to test the stories we had heard. I took several pieces of individually wrapped hard candies and placed a few on the dresser and a few on the window sill then placed the rest of the bag in the closet. We invited anyone to help themselves and that we would be back later. We were gone for a couple hours and to my surprise we came back and found a few pieces ripped open and a small piece broken off and lying on the dresser. The next day we left with a great personal story and a vow to go back in 9 years with the hope that the newer owners will due justice to a place that deserves to have the respect and the awe amazing experience it once did
