The Sagamore in Bolton Landing, New York is located on beautiful Lake George and is home to quite a few ghosts.
Back in the 1950s there was a little boy who worked on the golf course collecting golf balls. The nearby golf shop gave him money for every ball he collected. Unfortunately, one day the boy was running after a ball that landed on the road. He didn’t look where he was going and was hit by a car and killed.
His ghost now haunts the golf course and plays pranks on golfers who visit the greens. He has even been known to steal guests’ golf balls and can be heard laughing loudly while they search through the rough. Then, when they finally give up searching, he throw the balls them from behind a tree.
A ghostly couple haunts the hotel restaurant. They descend from the 2nd floor and take a seat in the restaurants reception room before vanishing into thin air. The staff say this couple were among the first guests of the hotel in the 1880s.
Mr. Brown’s dining area was visited by an apparition of a tall woman with flowing sandy blond hair wearing white evening attire. The woman mumbled something to the cook and when he turned to look at her, she walked toward him and then passed straight through him and disappeared. The cook quit abruptly and never returned.
One night, a hotel employee stepped into an empty elevator and pressed the elevator button. Her elbow bumped into something invisible. Suddenly a fat man materialized right behind him. He had a walrus mustache and was dressed in a fine 3-piece brown suit. Just then, the elevator stopped and the doors opened. The fat man brushed past the startled employee, took three steps out of the elevator and abruptly vanished.
