25 Haunted New England inns
The night desk clerks at the Equinox Hotel have heard it all.
Once a favored summer destination of Mary Todd Lincoln and her children, several guests have reported glimpsing a vanishing woman and young children on the hotel grounds.
Guests of one specific suite have consistently reported waking up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night to see a young boy peering at them from the side of the bed. When questioned, the little boy walks through the wall out onto the second floor veranda. When the guest gets up out of bed to see where the boy has gone to, they report seeing only a large cat sitting on the veranda.
In the 1811 House there is one room that is known as the hidden room where the familys traveling trunks were stored in the 1800s. This room also served as the favorite hiding place for the children during games of hide and seek. To this day, guests repeatedly report seeing and hearing children in period garb running and laughing while passing in and out of the hidden room.
