Hotel Conneaut

(Conneaut Lake, PA)

A Little History

Located inside the Conneaut Lake Amusement Park is this lovely Victorian Hotel, which has been the queen of accommodations at Conneaut Lake since it first welcomed guests in 1903. For over a century Conneaut Lake Park guests have stayed there, while enjoying the amusement park and the lake. Hotel Conneaut is a vintage hotel, offering accommodations very similar to what was offered at the turn of the century. The rooms do not even offer air conditioning, television, or heat, in order to preserve the rustic and enjoyable period of time before these amenities were available. Most of the rooms have been refurbished with individual themes by volunteers. Before Hotel Conneaut was built, the "Exposition Hotel" stood on the site. In 1903, one wing of the Exposition Hotel was used in the construction of Hotel Conneaut and still stands to this day. Originally, Hotel Conneaut boasted 300 guest rooms. Room rates were $1.00 per day and meals were only $.35! The shows were water skiers, music and dancers.

On April 29, 1943 the hotel was struck by lightning and the resulting fire destroyed more than half the roof. Unable to obtain permission to replace the damaged roof due to World War II, the damaged section was demolished resulting in a remodeled hotel of 150 rooms. Today the Hotel Conneaut is the only hotel in operation at Conneaut Lake and the last survivor of over a dozen hotels that once stood in Conneaut Lake Park.

The Legend

For many years it has been rumoured that two hotel guests - a bride and groom on their honeymoon, were trapped inside during the 1943 fire. It is said that the groom survived but the bride perished in the fire, because she was searching desperately for her husband. To this day, unexplained events are said to occur in the hotel and many people attribute these strange occurrences to the "Bride Elizabeth", who roams the hotel still searching for her lost love. Well, during our investigation we learned that the tale is nothing more than a myth, as the fire happened during the hotel's closed season and no one was inside during the time of the fire. So, this tale can now be laid to rest. But, is Hotel Conneaut turely haunted? Read on and judge for yourself....

The SHGHRS May 13, 2006 Investigation

On May 13, 2006 SHGHRS member's - Aedryan, DD, Matt and Jim conducted an investigation at Hotel Conneaut (approaching the end of the hotel's closed season). We were also accompanied by Jamie Murphy once again, who has been filming us during our investigations for an upcoming ghost hunter show, which will air on FOX TV sometime in October. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the hotel's front desk clerk - Carrie Pavlik, who is also the author of three different books, written exclusively about Hotel Conneaut. Carrie shared a few anamolous photos with us, which have been captured at Hotel Conneaut over the years. Though the photos were very low quality photo copies and we have no way of knowing what sort of protocols were followed when the photos were taken, many of them appeared to have ghostly ectoplasm. Carrie then gave us a brief tour of the hotel and filled us in on some of the history surrounding Hotel Conneaut.

After having Carrie unlock all of the rooms that have had reported strange occurances over the years (she has a documented list), we split up into three groups of two. During our three hour investigation, we split up into three groups of two and alternated levels after every hour as follows:

First hour of investigation (Apx. 11:47 PM - 12:47 AM):

First Floor - Jim And Carrie
Second Floor - Matt and Jamie
Third Floor - Aedryan and DD

Second hour of investigation (Apx. 1:23 AM - 2:23 AM):

First Floor - Matt and Jamie
Second Floor - Aedryan and DD
Third Floor - Jim And Carrie

Third hour of investigation (Apx. 3:04 AM - 4:04 AM):

First Floor - Aedryan and DD
Second Floor - Jim And Carrie
Third Floor - Matt and Jamie

Aedryan's Evidence

Anamolous Photos Captured

Total Photos Taken: 184

"Close-up Bright Orb In Motion"
Captured By Aedryan Methyus
Comments: This photo was captured at 12:12 AM on the third floor of the hotel. This is one of only two orb photos captured inside of the entire hotel all evening, so clearly there was not very much dust in the air, so we don't know what to make of this.

"Orb"
Captured By Aedryan Methyus
Comments: This photo was captured at 1:27 AM on the second floor of the hotel. Normally we do not post "everyday common orb" photos of this type, but we felt this one may be worthie of mentioning, only because after closely examining Aedryan's video footage, we determined that this orb did not show up on video. We're not exactly sure what this means, but thus far we have only considered orbs of this type to be possible "evidence" if they were also captured on video at the same time. Also, please note that this orb shows all of the traditional signs that most groups consider to be paranormal. It has a bright outer nucleus, as well as several other inner nuclei and it is transparent. Again, this was the second of only two orb photos captured inside of the hotel all evening, so we don't know what to make of it.

"Bright Yellow Orb In Motion"
Captured By Aedryan Methyus
Comments: Aedryan captured this photo at 3:00 AM outside of the hotel during a break. He only took a total of 6 photos outside of the hotel and photos 5 and 6 both produced yellow orbs in motion. This is photo 5.The photos were only taken seconds apart and what appears to be the same "orb" moved to a different location from one photo to the next. For all we know these could be pollen, but there is no way of knowing for sure....

"Same Yellow Orb?"
Captured By Aedryan Methyus
Comments: Aedryan also captured this photo at 3:00 AM, only seconds after the last photo. This is the sixth photo out of the 6 photos, Aedryan had taken outside of the hotel. Again, it very well could just be pollen, but who knows....

Anomalous Video Footage Obtained

Aedryan and DD captured aproximately 22 orbs and 4 of what appears to be anamolous shadows on video on the second floor of the hotel between 1:23 and 2:23 AM. Three of the four shadow anamolies we have noted appear to have association with orbs. Their footage from the third floor seems to show possible orb activity here and there, but because there was a bright light turned on at the end of the hallway the nightvision was somewhat drowned out, so the footage is unusable. They did not capture any orb activity on the first floor whatsoever. Only a couple of their favorite captures will be posted in this online report. Be sure to also read about a couple of possible paranormal experiences Aedryan and DD may have had on the second floor and watch their supporting video!

"There Goes Another One!" - This orb video was captured at 2:22 AM and it was one of several orbs and other anamolies that seem to come and go from the same door on the right.

"The Shadow Transformation And Noise Incident" - ****See The Description Below****

Personal/Possible Paranormal Experiences

Aedryan and DD both heard near by noises on two seperate occassions, both of which can be heard on their video footage. The first noise happened on the third floor at 11:47 PM, while they were standing still inside of one of the opened rooms. It sounded like something small, like a pebble, possibly hitting an empty metal can. Aedryan and DD noted a small, empty garbage can on the floor aproximately three feet from where Aedryan had been standing. We don't know what this could have been.

The second noise occured at 1:59 AM on the second floor at the end of the main, long hallway. Aedryan had been standing behind the video recorder continuously, monitoring his LCD screen, while DD was sitting on the floor to his right. They suddenly heard a noise, which sounded like something hit the closed metal doors about 8 feet behind them. The second video shown above may be supportive evidence to this possible paranormal occurence. Though the "optimized for the web" version of the footage is of low quality you will see a shadow suddenly cross in front of the bottom of the door frame to the right, which seems to transform into an orb and fly back behind us, after which you will hear the noise followed by Aedryan and DD's initial reactions. Again, Aedryan and DD captured at least 22 orbs and at least 4 shadow anamolies on video in this same area of the hotel....

Anomalous Video Footage Obtained

Matt captured aproximately 16 orbs on video between 11:47 PM and 12:47 AM on the second floor of the hotel. He has noted at least 8 orbs from the first floor, which were captured between 1:23 and 2:23 AM and at least 11 of them from the third floor of the hotel, which were captured between 3:04 and 4:04 AM. Below is one of Matt's favorite captures:

"A Circling Orb In The Ballroom" - Matt captured this footage at 2:16 AM in the ballroom on the first floor. You will see the orb do 3/4 of a circle around the outer perimeter of the ballroom, starting on the right and ending on the left.

Personal/Possible Paranormal Experiences

None.

Jim's Evidence

Anamolous Photos Captured

Total Photos Taken: 131

"Vaporous White Energy"
Captured By James McCann
Comments: Jim captured this photo at 1:01 AM on the third floor of the hotel. This is the only anamolous photo Jim captured throughout the whole evening.

Electronic Voice Phenomenon Obtained

Anomalous Video Footage Obtained

Jim captured aproximately 26 orbs on video throughout the evening. 4 were noted on the first floor, between 11:47 PM and 12:46 AM. 8 orbs were noted on the second floor, between 3:04 and 4:04 AM - 6 of which were noted in "Elizabeth's Room" specifically and 14 orbs were noted on the third floor, between 1:23 and 2:23 AM. Here are a few of Jim's favorite captures:

Four Orbs In "Elizabeth's Room" - Jim captured these orbs at 2:21 AM. This clip shows four of the six orbs that he captured on video in "Elizabeth's Room" on the second floor of the hotel.

An Orb In "Elizabeth's Room" - Jim captured this orb at 2:28 AM. It is one of six orbs that he captured on video in "Elizabeth's Room" on the second floor of the hotel.

Orb Coming Out Of Picture - Jim captured this orb at 3:12 AM in the main hallway of the second floor. It comes out of the picture on the wall to the left then does a little U-turn before zipping back behind Jim's video recorder.

Personal/Possible Paranormal Experiences

Jim noted that the second floor felt unusually cold, especially near "Elizabeth's Room", but his thermometer did not show any temperature fluctuations during those times.

Conclusion

Though we were able to debunk the age old tale of Elizabeth and her fiance' burning to death in the 1943 fire at Hotel Conneaut, we feel that based on the rather substantial amount of evidence we were able to collect on this night in such a short amount of time, it's pretty safe to say that there seems to be some ghostly activity within the 100 + year old walls of Hotel Conneaut. Given the enormous size of the structure, we would really like to return for a more thorough and lengthy follow up investigation as soon as we are able to. We feel that we would have captured A LOT more evidence in a couple more hours time and we regret not having done so. We are also very curious about the fourth floor, because we had asked Carrie how many floors there were in the hotel, without thinking to actually look and she said there were three floors. The photos that we had taken from the outside show four floors, as well as a small attic over a portion of the hotel.

In all we captured a total of at least 105 orbs on video in only 3 hours, yet only 3 possible orb photos out of 503 pictures taken, which is truely a rarity. Aside from the obvious actions and characteristics the orbs demonstrated on video, the fact that so few "apparent" orbs turned up in our photos, is a very good indication that there was very little dust in the air, which even further adds to the authenticity of the orbs we captured on video. We still cannot say for sure that orbs are truely ghost related, but clearly this sort are NOT dust and they do display at least some sort of intelligence. It is also extremely fascinating that at least 3 of Aedryan's orb captures seem to transform from anamolous shadows. This is a first for us! Additionally, we obtained a total of six EVP recordings between us within only 3 hours in near silence. Definitely not too bad of numbers!

We would like to thank Carrie Pavlik for her help, insight and hospitality and we also extend our thanks to the rest of the Hotel Conneaut management for allowing us this opportunity and we hope they will allow us to return in the future!
