Room 203: April 1, 2007
My mother, my sister, and I stayed here for our first visit to Savannah. We are all originally from Michigan (they still are there, I’m a grad student at UGA in Athens). We selected this inn mostly for the ghost. None of us have ever experienced “ghostly” activity and thought it would be fun. We read this journal before falling asleep the first night and then were so tense and jittery (waiting to be smothered or momentarily paralyzed) that we slept roughly. I don’t think we’ll stay at a haunted place again, mostly because it makes it psychologically difficult to fully relax because we’re always suspecting something might happen. Nothing ever did. The light in the bathroom did turn on and off… but we figured out there is a motion sensor and auto timer. My sister felt a tight smothering around her neck in the middle of the night… it was a necklace she had forgotten to take off. It got stuffy at night and then cold… because the air kept turning on and off on auto. There were creaks and noises… because of the old building. Nothing supernatural, I’m afraid despite our anticipations. We enjoyed the tour of the Mercer-Williams House, the ghost tour of Sorrel-Weed House, which was featured on ghost hunters (again, nothing personally experienced), and the breakfast downstairs. Enjoy your stay! Best wishes!
