Howdy! I love your website! I have a ghost story from the Oregon Caves. My husband and I went to the Caves and stayed at the lodge to celebrate our first wedding anniversary June 1997. The night we drove there, I kid you not there was a major lighting storm (As if that lodge needed anymore "atmosphere"!) Anyway the second we came into view I turned to my husband and said "It's haunted!) I don't know how to explain it but ever since I was a kid I've had the gift to sense things paranormal. Anyway John (my husband) just kind of laughed and said yeah right. So that night we had an excellent dinner and retired to our room on the second floor. John soon lost the "yeah right" attitude. He was in the bathroom and after the water in the sink was turned off and he turned to leave the water would come back on, full force. I know he wasn't playing games because I was sitting on the bed talking to him facing him and the bathroom directly. Well my curiosity was peaked, so the next morning we went down to the coffee shop to have breakfast. I waited until we were the only ones in there and I asked the waitress to tell me about their ghost. She said they weren't suppose to talk about it , but when I told her what happened in the bathroom she told me the story. Apparently shortly after the lodge was built a couple honeymooned there the brides (ghost's) name is Elizabeth. Her husband being a complete creep decided to have flings with the maids and wait staff, well, Elizabeth coming back early from a hike caught her new husband with a maid in their honeymoon bed. Distraught, she later that night slit her wrists and died in the bathtub. She mostly bothers the people working at the lodge, since that is who she has the grudge with. The kitchen and laundry room are where most of the disturbances occur. The chef will finish locking up and just start to leave when he/she hears all of the burners come on high. The chef will then have to go back in and turn everything off again. This happens especially if the chef is female. I also cornered a couple of the maids and they told me two interesting things, in the laundry room a maid will just be finished folding all of the sheets and laundry turn around to grab something out of the dryer turn back and the sheets and towels, in a split second and noiselessly will be in an unfolded heap in the middle of the floor. Elizabeth also does not like to have her room #308 disturbed and she gets upset when people stay in "her" room. She proceeds to pace or run back and forth in the hallway until daybreak. Her room was occupied when we were there and true to the maids word someone paced all night long. We got brave and decided to go investigate. We got up to the third floor landing and the tempurature dropped about ten degrees. Think about it, heat rises. We took a quick peak at the hall and beat a retreat to the coffee shop. Anyway that's my story.
