A Great Place to Investigate.......

When I am askedto name one of my favorite places to investigate I always have to include The Shanley Hotel in Napanoch, NY.  Let me give you a little history on the hotel first. The hotel was built in 1845 by Thomas Rich and it was one of the finest hotels in the area. In 1895 a fire destroyed the hotel and all that remained was the foundation. That same year the hotel was rebuilt and reopened in November. Since 1845 the hotel changed hands many times and then, in 1906, Louis Shanley bought the hotel. He married  Beatrice and they had three children, all of whom died before the age of one. The barber who worked at the Shanley had a four year old daughter who drowned in a well across the street from the hotel. Also, an eleven year old boy, Jonathan, was hit by a car in front of the hotel and died. There have also been claims of murders and people going missing at the hotel. So it's had it's fair share of tragedies.
I have stayed at the hotel on three different occasions, always for the weekend. Sal Nicosia is the owner and always a great host. Each time we were lucky to have much of the hotel to ourselves to investigate. Sal gives his guests the run of the 5,000 square foot hotel to investigate. We experienced everything from hearing voices to smelling  cigarette smoke in the bordello, yes, there was a bordello at the Shanley many years ago. We had interaction with our K2 meters and plenty of personal experiences. Some of the best EVP we have caught was at the Shanley so make sure you bring a digital recorder with you if you decide to go for a visit. It's a great place to stay for a weekend or a night if you want to experience paranormal phenomena. During the day we would travel to the town of Woodstock, about a 45 minute drive. They have great shops and cafe's to check out and then it's back to the hotel for another night of investigating. If you want to spend a weekend at a truly active hotel definitely check this place out, you won't be disappointed!
