|The Lodge in Cloudcroft, New Mexico
The Lodge at Cloudcroft, an 85
year-old inn contains the Rebecca Restaurant and Lounge. Rebecca's, once owned by Al Capone, was named after the young female ghost that haunts the Inn. Her portraits,
including a stained-glass window, are scattered throughout the property. Several dozen employees and guests at this mountain
resort have seen the apparition of a woman wearing a long dress, wandering the lodge halls. Rebecca was a beautiful, young
maid with striking blue eyes and red hair, who was murdered by her jealous lumberjack boyfriend at the inn back in the 1930s
when it was a lodge for the local loggers. Rebecca is called a flirtatious, mischievous spirit, who likes to use the telephone
in Room 101, the Governor's Suite. Guests in that room sometimes receive phone calls from nowhere, and operators at the resort
say that the line to Room 101 is often lit up, even when no one is in the suite. Rebecca's presence is also felt in the Red
Dog Saloon, where ashtrays move by themselves and flames appear in the fireplace with no logs or other source of fuel.
|St. James Hotel
St James Hotel
17th & Collinson, Cimarron, NM (505) 376-2664
Henri Lambert, a Frenchman who was the personal chef to President Abrahom Lincoln
and General Ulyssess S. Grant. He built the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico between 1880. Originally
it was a gambling hall/saloon. The Hotel became a place of violence. It
is believed by historians that at least 26 people died violently in this hotel. The
hotel was a hang out for many gunslingers of that era such as Clay Allison, Blackjack Ketchum, and Jesse James as well as
Wyatt Earp, Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley. When the roof was replaced in 1901, more than 400 bullet holes were found
in the ceiling above the bar. The building was remodeled into a hotel in 1985 with only some of the rooms available for rent.
Many people will tell you that the hotel is haunted with many different ghosts.
ROOM 18: A nasty ghost is kept locked
up in room 18. It is not known who the ghost is, but it is evident that this
ghost does not like to be disturbed and will go as far as manifesting as a swirling energy field to keep people out. It is
thought that this is the ghost of T.J. Wright, a man who won the hotel in a card game only to be murdered shortly afterwards.
A search of the hotel’s old register revealed a “T.J. Wright” was checked in the hotel.
ROOM 17: A gentler presence haunts room
17. It is thought that it is the ghost of Mary Lambert, wife of the original owner who died in this room while still
young. Sometimes a drifting wave of fragrant perfume manifest in the room. No one has been able to identify the
odor or its source.
Kitchen and Dining room: A friendly spirit, whom the owners have dubbed the Little Imp, likes to torment new employees in the kitchen
and dining room. Described as a small man with a pockmarked face, the Little Imp has been known to burst glasses, relight
candles and move objects in front of nervous new hires. Other reported activity includes lights that turned on and off, particularly
the chandelier near the stairs, and chandeliers that move on their own accord. Cold spots can also be felt in various
locations throughout the hotel.
Today the Hotel offers 12 restored rooms that are
decorated beautifully with antiques. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
